A Steve McNair Murder Update, From The Eyes Of Holly Peete

steve-mcnairTotal Pro Sports – Over the weekend the NFL world was hit hard by the tragic news of Steve McNair’s death.  Since the discovery of his body on Saturday, several pieces of evidence have been uncovered that suggest he may have been the victim of a murder-suicide.

While McNair was shot four times, twice in the head, his lover, 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi, was also found dead in the room after one fatal shot to the head.  The gun was also discovered under her body.  Police have not yet ruled it to be a murder-suicide carried out by Kazemi, but they are currently not looking for any suspects.

As this story continues to sort itself out, several members of the NFL community have shared their thoughts on the matter.  Most noteworthy thus far may be the perspective taken by Holly Robinson Peete, wife of former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, through Twitter.  I guess Shaq and Ocho Cinco decided to take the weekend off.

While Twittering about the matter, she made clear her thoughts about the extra-marital affair that McNair was involved in, and what her reaction to a similar situation with Rodney might be:


Holly does bring up quite the interesting question.  It is anyone’s guess as to how NFL players will react to such a tragedy, and how they will go about conducting their extra-marital affairs in the future.  Maybe Holly Peete is the type of person the NFL has been looking for to speak to young players coming into the league.  At least Rodney should be scared straight right about now.
