i read something that it may have been a murder/suicide by his wife (a woman was found dead at the scene as well), but that is in no way confirmed.

Tragic. Probably one of the best QB's of all time and I can't think of one tougher that's for sure. We'll miss him in Nashville.

One of the toughest s.o.b.s ever to play QB in the NFL.

Tragic loss. RIP Steve

Sad news for sure. TBH I thought he was a bit overrated but I definitely respected his toughness and grit. RIP Steve. :,-(

Hell of a ball player and hell of a good guy...

McNair was personally impacted by Hurricane Katrina as his home and family are in Mississippi. McNair hosted a relief drive in the parking lot of LP Field to aid the victims on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and surrounding areas for the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund.

Steve’s foundation collected 20 semi-trucks full of supplies and $50,000 during the 12-hour relief drive. McNair then joined Brett Favre and Peyton Manning as NFL spokesmen for the Hurricane Relief Fund in partnership with the American Red Cross. The Steve McNair Foundation raised in excess of $250,000 for the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund and distributed approximately 500,000 pounds of supplies. A distribution center was set up in the Waveland/Bay St. Louis, MS area for anyone needing supplies.

On Nov. 16, 2005 McNair was named the 2005 Philanthropist of the Year by the Nashville Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) for efforts such as these. The AFP is an international organization working to advance philanthropy and mentor fundraising professionals.

“Every year we have many, many players that make a significant contribution to a number of charities,” Titans coach Jeff Fisher said at the time. “They do it without the intention of getting personal recognition and that is what Steve and his teammates are all about.”
