The Tennessee Titans retired former QB Steve McNairs number on Sunday. It’s been 10 years since McNair was murdered by mistress and this was one of the best moments possible.
Way to show you’re still watching Steve! I hope you’re resting easy.

McNair is second in franchise history behind Warren Moon in passing yards and completions. He’s third in touchdown passes.
The Houston Oilers were 2-14 in 1994 before McNair and teammate Eddie George turned the team around as they moved to Tennessee.
Between 1999 and 2003 they went to the playoffs four times, including a trip to the Super Bowl where they lost to the Rams.
