One Jaguars fan celebrated the start of the NFL season by
mocking deceased former Titans quarterback Steve McNair.
Clay Travis of OutKicktheCoverage.com passed along a photo of one Jaguars fan that dressed up a skeleton with a torn-up and bloody Steve McNair jersey. The skeleton was proudly displayed outside his car while tailgating before the game.
We know one fan shouldn’t provide a negative slant on an entire fanbase, but this is so out of bounds and pathetic it still merits attention. Perhaps the Jaguars could figure out who did it, and take away their season tickets if they have any.
PFT regulars will remember that an amusement park in Cincinnati intended to include McNair’s jersey and “skeleton” as part of a Halloween display a few years ago. It’s ridiculous that such a similar story happened again.
