NFL Legend Warren Moon Lands An Absolute Bomb On Colin Kaepernick!
Warren Moon is one of those people that when you listen to him talk you realize that there is much more to him than just a football player. He also happens to be one of the smartest people to have ever played the game.
Warren Moon has the unique distinction of being in not one but two Halls of Fame. He is enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, as well as the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
He has a laundry list of accolades, including nine Pro Bowl appearances, a first-team All Pro honor and several yardage and passing touchdown high marks in the NFL, where he spent most of his career with the Houston Oilers.
He also led the Edmonton Eskimos to five Grey Cups (the CFL’s equivalent of the Super Bowl.)So it goes without saying that Warren Moon has probably forgotten more about professional football than most people will ever know.
Moon just gave an illuminating interview with TMZ Sports that covered a variety of NFL subjects.
Unsurprisingly, the subject of free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick was brought up.
Moon was rather bullish on Kaepernick’s chances of getting signed this year.
“I just don’t think any team is going to sign Colin from this point on, just because of the [collusion grievance] he has against the league and against the owners,” Moon said.
It’s a fair point. It’d take an impossibly forgiving business to hire somebody who is actively accusing it of engaging in illegal business practices.
“I thought if anything, if he was going to file a [collusion grievance], he maybe should’ve waited until this season was over if he did want to play this year,” Moon continued.
That’s when Moon asked the question that many Kaepernick critics would have for him, especially in regards to whether the former 49er really even wants to play football anymore.
“Does he really want to play if he’s going to go and [file a grievance against] the league and then also try to get signed by a football team?” Moon asked.
It’s a very good question that most Kaepernick supporters might struggle to answer.
“The two just don’t seem to mix,” Moon added, referring to Kaepernick both taking legal action against and seeking employment from the league.
Moon went on to cover some other topics, including Houston Texans owner Bob McNair’s controversial “inmates” remark.
“I think it was just a bad choice of words, and a bad analogy. If he could take those words back and maybe use some type of another analogy, I think he would,” Moon said about McNair.
