Moon talks Cris Carter, young quarterbacks, and more

If you aren’t watching PFT Live every weekday at noon ET or clicking the box on the right rail any time of the day or night for the full show or, as the final fallback, downloading the audio in podcast format on iTunes (our sponsors prefer that you watch the show . . . and we prefer to keep our sponsors moderately happy), you’re missing plenty of strong-to-quite-strong NFL-related content and guests.

Earlier this week, for example, you missed Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon.

A first-ballot inductee to Canton who still ranks fifth on the all-time career NFL passing yardage list, Moon talked about a variety of topics, including the best receiver he ever played with, Moon’s likely passing numbers if he were still in the league, his relationship with Cris Carter in Minnesota, the trend toward mobile quarterbacks and how he would have fared in that style of offense, the young quarterbacks poised to take over the game, and more.

Moon appeared in connection with his new role with Athletes Performance, which is one of the other topics addressed in the segment.

The spot begins (and, if I recall correctly, ends) with an appearance by the 1995 Startling Lineup Warren Moon action figure, one of the first to feature a player in no-pads practice gear.  (The PFT archives include several other Starting Lineup figures, including but not limited to Hardy Nickerson sporting the Bucco Bruce uniform.)

For other PFT Live segments, click the PFT Video link above.  And tune in every Monday through Friday at noon ET.

    I felt that the best course of action here was to just stop reading the article once I saw “Moon talks …” in the headline.

    funny how the world works..a guy that did NOT get drafted can better prepare players for the draft…hmmm?

    Moon was the best Qb the Vikings ever had and that includes the Choker, BrINT Favre. Not that the Vikings could go deep in the playoffs with Moon but he was clearly their best.

    how long have you followed football? 2-3 years?

    another guy, name Tarkenton — kinda good in his.

    A grumpy old man now…but not too bad.

    Wilson-kaepernick=milli vanilli

    Wilson and kaep are just like milli vanilli, one hit wonders who take all the credit from others that do all the hard work (defense).

    Maybe he and Donovan McNabb should have a show together

    Dear whatjusthapped,

    Check out Warren’s stats with the Vikes before you go spouting nonsense, okay. Moon was quite the INT machine while in Minny.

    hello? Randall Cunningham, NOT on the list? Sheesh! Even Bronco fans know he belongs on that list!

    Moon to Carter was beautiful, they were both so sharp at what they did.

    Apparently sarcasm is lost on Viking trolls. So is any apparent football knowledge but then again, if you only watch the Vikings, that’s what will happen to you.

    ………..
    Why are you even commenting? You cheer for the Packers…..thus meaning you THINK you have superior football knowledge…..we get it!!!

    Let’s not say we really “missed” Moon. We probably just reached our nonsense quotient before the show started.

  14. dcviking says: Aug 24, 2013 7:07 PM

    In our defense, it’s hard to tell when morons are being sarcastic or just being themselves…

    And not one of them could win Superbowl for the franchise..just saying

    Not winning a Superbowl in 50+ years is what makes the Vikings both hapless and tasteless.
