Sad. I'm sure there is significantly more to the story, unless this is another Sean Taylor-type situation. Just another reminder that being great/famous/rich doesn't give you immunity from trouble.
I hated him as a player, mainly because he regularly abused the Steelers.
True dat. He and Eddie were two guys I loved to hate, but when the clock read 0:00 you had to respect those guys. Injury report would come out and McNair would sound like a scratch, then the mother would come out and grit out a tough one against us again. Even as a Rattie, he played us tough.
Is he a HOFer? Anyway, underrated amongst the glamor boys these days. A real fucking shame.
