You might have been just as surprised to find out it's been a full year since former Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens QB Steve McNair was murdered. Today is the one-year anniversary of his death and still the questions linger, even to the point of police being requested to reopen the case and investigate further.
The grieving process for his family and friends is far from over and yet there are those who just want to regurgitate the agony and heartache of losing a man who stood as a warrior on the field and loved his kids off of it.
Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post wrote a story on the anniversary of his passing. SB Nation and the NFP have a great working relationship and share an association between the two networks. Check it out by clicking on the link.
While I prefer not to remember McNair as a murder victim or even a adulterous husband, I want to recall his time as an NFL player with great respect, both as a Raven and even as a Titan. His battles with Ray Lewis were chess matches and you could always expect a war when these two guys faced off. My favorite McNair Ravens' moment was probably the one when he rolled out in the his own end zone and lofted a pass to Mark Clayton (?) for a 90 yard TD pass in 2006, when the Ravens went 13-3 in the regular season and should have won the Super Bowl that year (shoulda, coulda, woulda?).
