“Coming out and making this decision, it was hard, in your mind, you feel like you can play, that you can still compete. But when your mind and your body are not in accord, it’s not going to work in the National Football League.”
“My mind was there. Mentally, I could go out and play. But physically, I couldn’t do it anymore. Not to the capacity that I need to help my teammates win a football game.”
He received a standing ovation from his fellow teammates and they respectively accepted his decision. Steve McNair won a NFL MVP Award and led the Tennessee Titans to a Super Bowl. Happy Retirement Steve.
