Warren Moon

Harold Warren Moon (born November 18, 1956) is a former American professional gridiron football quarterback who played for the Canadian Football League's Edmonton Eskimos and the National Football League's Houston Oilers, Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, and Kansas City Chiefs. He is currently a broadcaster for the Seattle Seahawks.

Moon is one of only two people to be enshrined in both the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the United States and the Canadian Football Hall of Fame (former coach Bud Grant, who coached the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to four Grey Cup titles and the Minnesota Vikings to four Super Bowl appearances, is the other). Moon is also the first modern African-American quarterback to be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is also the only quarterback to make the hall of fame in the modern era without ever playing in a conference championship game.

Moon held the record for most passing yardage in professional football (CFL + NFL career) until surpassed by Damon Allen on September 4, 2006, held the record for most passing touchdowns in professional football until surpassed by Brett Favre on November 22, 2007, held the record for most pass completions in professional football until surpassed by Brett Favre on December 23, 2007, and held the record for most pass attempts in professional football history until surpassed by Brett Favre on December 14, 2008.

Famous quotes containing the words moon and/or warren:

    Crazed through much child-bearing
    The moon is staggering in the sky;
    Moon-struck by the despairing
    Glances of her wandering eye
    We grope, and grope in vain,
    For children born of her pain.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    It is difficult to believe that even idiots ever succumbed to such transparent contradictions, to such gaudy processions of mere counter-words, to so vast and obvious a nonsensicality ... sentence after sentence that has no apparent meaning at all—stuff quite as bad as the worst bosh of Warren Gamaliel Harding.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
