Luke Links: David Garrard is feeling Dwight Freeney

Last night's podcast seemed to go well even though we were unable to have John Oehser on. Funny little side note: John called me right after the show to tell me he was unable to call in at all. So, the person who was trying to call at 8:10pm was NOT John Oehser. Special thanks to shake n bake and Elwood for calling in and offering opinions on air. You can listen to last night's podcast after the jump.

Finally,I hope people do not take my comments about Steve McNair the player and use them to suggest I think Steve McNair was some sort of scumbag. While his personal life seemed rather sketchy, and his reputation for laziness as a player prevented him from becoming a Hall of Famer, I personally do not think Steve McNair was some kind of "bad guy." Nor do I think he was a "bad" football player. He was a flawed football player, just as he was likely a flawed husband. But that doesn't take away anything from the countless hours of charity work he did, or the fact that, for many Titans fans, he put their team on the map.

If I could liken McNair to another player, I'd say he is very similar to Jim Harbaugh. Like McNair for Titans fans, Harbaugh helped put the Colts on the map. He helped create a new generation of Colts fans just as McNair helped create a fanbase in Tennessee. For a short period of time (Harbaugh, 1995-1997; McNair 2001-2003) they were considered elite QBs. However, for the rest of their careers, they were pretty much average. That doesn't take away from their impacts on their local communities and on the teams they played for.

Listen to last night's podcast below for more on the late-Steve McNair.
