David Climer of the Tennessean examines Vince Young‘s relationship with Steve McNair, saying the former Titans and Ravens quarterback was more than a mentor to Young. Climer writes:
Their relationship stemmed from a meeting years ago when McNair, then quarterbacking a franchise known as the Houston Oilers, was summoned to counsel Young. The two developed a lasting bond.
Climer also wonders what might have been if McNair had the opportunity to follow through on discussions with Titans coach Jeff Fisher about helping out at this summer’s training camp.
