December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair was killed on Saturday in a possible murder-suicide.

He was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds in his Nashville condominium on Saturday with his 20-year old girlfriend, Sahel Kazemi who was found with a single gunshot wound to the head.

McNair was married and had four children but reportedly had been seeing Kazemi for a few months. He had been seen visiting her apartment and she was seen at his condominium on a regular basis.

McNair was seen going back to his condo at about 2 a.m. on Saturday morning. Sports betting information tells us that just two days earlier McNair and Kazemi were pulled over by police and Kazemi was charged with DUI.

Fred McNair, who is Steve’s oldest brother, said that everyone was in shock.

"It’s still kind of hard to believe," Fred McNair said. "He was the greatest person in the world. He gave back to the community. He loved kids and he wanted to be a role model to kids."

Many people had already weighed in on McNair’s death including Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams. "He was one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans," Adams said, "He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl."

McNair played 13 seasons in the NFL before retiring from the league last April as NFL odds information shows. He was a three-time Pro Bowl pick as NFL betting statistics showed. NFL betting information tells us that he played college football at Alcorn State before joining the Houston Oilers in 1995. He played 11 seasons with the Titans who moved from Houston and he led the team to the Super Bowl in 1999 as NFL odds info showed. That game is very memorable to NFL betting gamblers since the Titans lost as Kevin Dyson was stopped at the one yard line on the final play of the game.

McNair was the co-MVP of the league in 2003 with Peyton Manning as online betting statistics show. He threw for 3,215 yards and 24 touchdowns with only seven interceptions that season as NFL betting stats show.

More details on the shooting of McNair and the circumstances regarding his death continue to be released by police.
