History

 

The Tennessee Titans lost one of their greatest players in franchise history when long-time quarterback Steve McNair was tragically killed in Nashville on July 4, 2009. McNair, who led Tennessee's famous drive that came a yard short of forcing overtime in the 2000 Super Bowl, made an even greater impact in the Nashville community through the Steve McNair Foundation.

Much like his play on the field, McNair's work in the community was done without a desire to receive publicity for his efforts. He did it for the love of helping others and the smiles his work would invariably bring to those who benefited from his generosity. For his incredible efforts in the community, he was selected as the 2005 Titans Walter Payton Award Winner, given to the team's Community Man of the Year.

In 13 NFL seasons, including 11 campaigns with the Titans and two with the Baltimore Ravens, the former first-round draft pick set team records and accumulated the most wins of any quarterback in Titans/Oilers history.
