Only 3 years removed from sharing the NFL's MVP title with Peyton Manning, Tennessee Titans QB Steve McNair has been told to stay away from the practice facility. Have his skills eroded? Not really. McNair has never been a big statistical QB. But he's always been a tough guy who has had a myriad of injuries, most of which he's played through. He's the first person you think of when the Tennessee Titans are mentioned. And while he may only have 2-3 years left in his career, he certainly deserves to be treated better than the team is doing.

I'm not saying the Titans don't have a legitimate concern in regards to having a lot of salary cap money tied up in him that they would be liable for if he sustained an injury. From the pure business standpoint, the Tenessee Titans are doing the smart thing. But if they are being honest in their statements about being committed to working out an arrangement that will keep McNair on the team, then surely there must have been some way to handle it better than by telling him he's not welcome at the facility. Under their supervision, couldn't he show up and go through minor workouts with little chance of incurring injury? It would have been fairly easy to sell to McNair and the public as over the years he's had injuries to his back, shoulder, knees, arm, groin, toe, ankle, neck, hamstring, and hand; and these are just the injuries I can name off the top of my head, there could easily be others I'm forgetting about.

Why couldn't McNair go through "light workouts" or have "limited participation" that would save face and prevent the certain ill will McNair reportedly has. I know that there would still be a chance McNair could get injured and put the team on the hook, but it would realistically be slim. By preventing him from showing up, they are all but saying they are prepared to move into the post-McNair era this season. And if McNair is released, he'll find a job somewhere else. The Baltimore Ravens are supposed to be very interested. And if the Ravens actually had a QB, they could be a very good. A very, VERY good team.

The NFL does stand for Not For Long. Its pretty sad to see how these franchise QB's are treated at the end of their careers. Could we see Bret Favre and McNair playing in different cities Think about it - Tennessee's strategy is to get him back to the barginning table, however, it would appear that may have back fired. The NFL Draft up ahead is not helping matters, because Bud Adams is looking at Vince Young, to the future.

Will either one even be a number 2 on most fantasy football rosters ?
