Looks like murder-suicide. Early reports are that his wife killed him and then herself.

Sad story. He always seemed like a good guy.

That sucks, I always like Air McNair. Why couldn't it be Michael Vick instead?

Re: Former NFL QB Steve McNair apparently shot to death in downtown Nashville

One of my all-time favorites. Always seemed like just a good ol' country boy playing a game he loved. Very sad.

This has been the worst summer ever.

Can we please just fast forward to September?

Indeed - celebrity deaths are pretty routine, but lately it seems that it's either a shocking death (Michael Jackson, David Carradine, Air McNair) or cultural icon (Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson). It's been a really tough summer so far.

This is really sad news.

What is the list of athletes dying young this year like? Nick Adenhart, Wayman Tisdale, Steve McNair...?
