took two hits and bounced up quickly both times. he said he initiated the contact once so he wouldn't be afraid of taking hits and said his chest feels fine. was 7 for 10 for 62 yards and a pick.

McNair is going to be a steal for lots of people this year. He's got a better OC, the chance to call his own plays, and the defense is going to be Garbage there. Good TE's as well. I don't sweat the receiving corps being thin.

here's what yahoo had to say about him:

Aug 13 A slimmed-down McNair looked poised in Friday's preseason game against Tampa Bay. He went 7-of-10 for 67 yards and one interception. He also ran at will, and didn't shy away from taking a few hits.
Recommendation: Despite the interception, Friday should be a big confidence booster for McNair. He took control of the offense and did not appear hesitant against a very tough Bucs defense, a good sign that his sternum issues are behind him.


Aug 11 Quarterback Steve McNair won't wear a protective vest in the Titans' exhibition opener and said his surgically-repaired sternum is ready to absorb contact. "The doctor assured me it was probably the strongest bone in my body," McNair told The Tennessean. "It'll be good if I do get contact, if I do get sacked, if I do get tackled and see how it feels. But it's nothing I'll be worrying about."
Views: Team officials have raved about McNair during training camp, how he's in great shape and looking quicker than he has in years… and now he'll be unencumbered by a bulky protective vest. The former league co-MVP is flying below the fantasy radar this season, but with the Titans' defense prone to giving up points he'll be asked to generate plenty of his own. That's the recipe for a solid fantasy sleeper.


that's great news that he didn't wear a protective vest and was able to bounce right up after getting hit, hopefully his sternum problems are behind him.

Well, when a bone fully heals, it usually heals back stronger than it was originally. So if he's fully healed, he should be fine.

I don't know...it's only the preseason can be taken different ways. He's healthy now, but after he takes a few hard hits, who knows how he'll feel. He almost always plays through a bunch of pain, though.

He's a risky backup QB, but he could easily turn into one of those guys who becomes your starter after 5-6 weeks. He probably has great value in drafts. ;-D
