“We are saddened and shocked to hear the news of Steve McNair’s passing today,” Titans owner K.S. “Bud” Adams Jr. said in a statement. “He was one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans. He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family as they deal with his untimely passing.”
More on McNair’s amazing career and tragic death later. For now — along with trying to figure out why these kinda things have to happen — I just want to send our thoughts to the McNair family and say that he will be missed.
