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.”
