QB Fred McNair
 Cobras Career 
2000 
Fred McNair joined the Cobras on May 30 after Carolina traded OS Jack Jackson and QB Jim Arellanes to Florida for McNair and lineman Dary Myricks.   In his first game with the Cobras, he threw for 234 yards and four touchdowns at Orlando, but also tossed an interception that ended the threat of a Carolina upset.  Then, in his ESA debut, he threw for only 190 yards before being pulled for Carlos Garay, as the Mustangs blew out the Cobras 63-16.  But McNair soon improved, throwing for six touchdowns and only six incomplete passes in an overtime loss to New England, then tossing for three scores and rushing for another in Nashville.  His first win as a Cobra came vs. Houston, and in his final three games, he threw for 20 touchdowns, including eight in the final home loss to Tampa Bay.
