Titans Coach Jeff Fisher Says McNair Would Have Said “I’m Sorry”


Current Titans Head Coach Jeff Fisher spoke publicly for the first time Monday afternoon concerning the death of his long-time QB, Steve McNair.

Fisher did it in front of former teammates Blaine Bishop, Eddie George, and Brad Hopkins, stating that he remembers McNair as one of the greatest competitors he’s ever witnessed on the football field.

In somewhat of a weird twist, Fisher did somewhat admit that McNair was totally in the wrong for running around and cheating on his wife, wining and dining a 20-year-old – Sahel Kazemi.

“The Steve McNair I knew would want me to say I’m sorry,” Fisher said. “I’m not perfect. The Steve McNair would want me to say celebrate my life for what I did on the field, for what I did in the community, for what kind of teammate I was.”

Fisher was the only coach McNair had for the first 11 years of his NFL career before he moved on to play his final two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.

“The Steve McNair that I knew, along with his teammates here, put this organization on the map here in Tennessee. He put us in our first Super Bowl.”

    R.I.P. Steve

    Thank you Jeff Fisher. Someone finally has the guts to point out the fact that McNair,
    a married father of four children, was not the hallowed saint of the gridiron, but merely another philandering jackass who brought shame on himself and his family through his revolting behavior during a short football retirement.

    Steve was not a jackass he was a very distrubed young man that made a terribel mistake and paid for it with his life. He did not deserve to die this way and I will alway remember Steve like coach Fisher for what he accomplished on the football field and the community. I pray God will be with Steve’s wife and sons.
