"It helps [to watch] because this game is mostly mental," McNair said. "It's not as much about skill and athleticism. It's about knowing the game, knowing where to go with the football and knowing the speed of the game. Sitting out and watching and learning from the other guy's mistakes and good plays means that when you do go in all of a sudden, you can focus on making plays and executing and not anything else."
"I tell him everything is mental," McNair said. "He has to let the game come to him this year and he has to involve his teammates in everything he does because those are the guys who will make him or break him."
