Best Memory of Steve McNair 

Next-to-Last Play, Super Bowl XXXIV, Atlanta

No one ever will forget the circumstances under which the former Tennessee Titans quarterback died this past summer. But the local fan base would rather remember the late McNair for his judgment and character on the field—as in the unforgettable penultimate play of Super Bowl XXXIV, when he was forced to scramble to his right. Then, before throwing to Kevin Dyson for a 16-yard gain, he threw St. Louis defensive end Kevin Carter (later a teammate in Tennessee) to the ground. Never in a single play were McNair's competitiveness, courage, natural strength and improvisational ability more apparent. In most cases, it's tough to name what team lost a championship contest, never mind anything that team accomplished in defeat. In this case, it's tough to remember who won. DAVID BOCLAIR
