Tennessee Titans star quarterback Steve McNair is going to be inducted in the College Football Hall of Fame as a part of the 2020 class.
When you think of great Tennessee Titans players, there aren’t very many people that come to mind since the Titans are still a young franchise. Of that handful of Titans that are considered great, Steve McNair is on almost everyone’s list.
Without Air McNair, who knows if the Titans would have found the success they did when they moved to Tennessee.
Now, after a successful college and professional career, McNair will be one of 17 players to join the College Football Hall of Fame as a part of the 2020 class in December.
Before walking across the NFL Draft stage as the number three overall pick, McNair spent four years at Alcorn State, where he played college football and won the Walter Payton Award in his senior year.
He finished his college career with 5,377 yards and 47 touchdowns, and he also would go on to finish third in the Heisman Trophy voting his senior year.
In his NFL career, McNair led the Titans to two AFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl. In the Titans’ only Super Bowl appearance in franchise history, McNair was unable to beat the St. Louis Rams and lost in a close game.
Steve McNair is the Titans quarterback I grew up watching. Air McNair, who doesn’t want to be like him? Scramble around in your back yard and heave the ball up to the “endzone” for it to be caught by a friend. Touchdown Titans!
After being inducted beside his friend and former teammate, Eddie George, into the Titans Ring of Honor, no one else deserves this honor more than McNair.
