QB STEVE MC NAIR WITH RAVENS GM OZZIE NEWSOME

Thank you

Edgar Allen Poe

( 1845 )

But the raven, sitting lonely on that placid bust, spoke only That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.

Nothing further then he uttered; not a feather then he fluttered; Till I scarcely more than muttered, “Other friends have flown before; On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.”

Then the bird said, “Nevermore.”

Yes Mr. Poe

( from the other side of the Grave )

Steve McNair has arrived

in Baltimore to play

for the Ravens

to Leave

” Nevermore ”

Tennessee’s loss

Football’s gain

In fairness of course you could say McNair had to go with the Titan’s Smart Draft of The Quarterback of the Future Vince Young. At best McNair would have been the caretaker QB until Young went Starter. Indeed there were other issues to McNair’s “demise” with the Titans, but signing Young trumped them.

Including his health and injuries

but he passed his Physical

answering those

Questions

McNair the 10 year veteran all played in Tennessee at 33 is now a seasoned professional and should be the defining asset for the Ravens for the next 5 years the length of his new contract. The Quarterback Baltimore needs to return them to the SuperBowl Glory of 2001, and out of their 2005 season funk 6-10.

More than likely

for the Remainder

of his Career

Steve McNair

will leave

“nevermore”

The journey from Memphis to Baltimore has been somewhat Rocky as you should know. The Titans wanting but not wanting to accept the fact McNair was gone and with those Questions of health delaying his departure until answered to everyone’s satisfaction. The Titans preventing this Worthy Quarterback from using their training facilities even as he remained one of Them.

Now all this will be settled

on the Playing Field

as it Should

most of All

when the Ravens

play the Titans

Sunday November 12th

will it Be

McNair vs. Young

Let’s Hope

never more

than Now

O Football

Bringer of Life

every Fall !
