    This is a sad day. He was a great guy, a good football player, and he was fun to listen to on the radio.

    Good luck to you Steve. We will miss you.

    Not really. There were alot of people around here that thought McKinney would be back. I thought our line looked best with him at C. Never caredfor him at G. Was fun to listen to on the radio. Could have a future in broadcasting.

    No, it was the wrong section. McKinney is not a Houston Texan.

    Really. If it was "McKinney retires", that would belong in the Texans section. Signing with the Dolphins makes this a NFL story.

    I thought McKinney would end up with his buddy Peyton, in Indy. But, I can see why the Dolphins made this move. They released a Guard last week, Drew Mormino, and had a rookie 4th round pick running 1st team RG in mini-camp. With all the young players on that line, a vet like McKinney should give them some stability.

    McKinney is also a straight forward non-finesse blocker...someone who is a better fit with Parcells philosophy probably.

    Houston, again.
    Steve played well for us, seemed like a good guy and did good interviews on the radio and such and I wish him well, but when we play them, may he a scrotum rash such that he can't walk.:headhurts:

    I was hoping he would be back. Oh, well. I hope this is a sign of how good the guys we picked up are. Good luck Steve.

    Not anymore but they did have a whole bunch of McKiney jerseys lying around however so they thought they would save on making a whole new bunch of jerseys and just sign Steve to replace Seth.

    Rumours are they are also trying to find a person with the name of Culpepper to play either QB, K, P or WR.

    Best of luck to Steve. I too thought he'd end up in Indy. Least he's got a shot at a starting Gig.

    I'd be surprised if he breaks the starting lineup without someone getting injured. I'm pretty sure they just signed him for depth and locker room presence.
