Over 5000 mourners gathered today, to pay their last respects to NFL football hero, Steve McNair. Titans quarterback Vince Young wound up summing up the emotional day with just a few words.
“Steve was like a hero to me, and heroes are not supposed to die,” Young said before stopping to rub his eyes as he talked about the man he knew from football camps as a teenager and called “Pops” — Steve McNair, his predecessor with the Titans.
McNair was shot and killed on the Fourth of July by his girlfriend, 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi, who then shot herself in the head.
Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
