Steve McNair found dead

New, comments

I know I'm a bit late on this but I figured it was worthy of a front page mention. Former Tennessee Titans QB Steve McNair was found dead in his Nashville apartment yesterday.

Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair, who led the famous Tennessee Titans' drive that came a yard short of forcing overtime in the 2000 Super Bowl, was found dead Saturday with multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the head. Police said a pistol was discovered near the body of a woman also shot dead in a downtown condominium

The reasons behind the killing are unknown at this point. What authorities do know is that the woman he was found with was a "friend" and a waitress at a local restaurant that McNair frequented. She was arrested for DUI 2 days prior while driving with McNair in his car. 

I always liked Steve McNair and I'm sure I share most Eagles fan's sentiments in sending our condolences to his loved ones.

Titans blog Music City Miracles has a great tribute to McNair up.
