Steve McNair Killed

News is breaking that former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair has been shot and killed in Nashville.

McNair reportedly was shot in the head in downtown Nashville and did not survive. Details are sketchy at this hour but it looks as though it was a double homicide as a female was also found dead at the scene.

McNair, 36, played 13 years in the NFL, mostly with the Tennessee Titans. He retired in 2007.

My Take: Obviously some shocking news. McNair will always be known for his days in Tennessee and the fateful final play against the Rams in the Super Bowl where the Titans came up one yard short of tying the game.

    When will this run of celebrity deaths end?!?!?!
