By a score 63-31, Warren Moon has beaten Donovan McNabb in the tournament final to be named the greatest African American quarterback of all time!
Regardless of race, Warren Moon is simply one of the most prolific passers in Pro Football history. After an outstanding college career at Washington, Moon had to win five championships with the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL just to prove he could play quarterback at a professional level. When he finally got his chance in the NFL in 1984 with the Houston Oilers, he didn't look back, taking over one of the most high-powered offenses of his era. A nine time Pro Bowler, Moon was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his second year of eligibility, making him the first black quarterback to be inducted, as well as the first undrafted quarterback. Moons accomplishments as an NFL quarterback paved the way for countless African Americans to follow in his footsteps, permanently changing the landscape of the NFL for the better.
Thank you to all who participated in the tournament! #nfl#nfllegends#nflgoat#nflhistory#nflbattles#nfltournaments#warrenmoon#houstonoilers
Bang Brain black history honoree of the day #158 Today’s honoree is former NFL quarterback Warren Moon. Moon was the first black quarterback to get inducted into the hall of fame. Moon overcame obstacles of being an undrafted free agent in the NFL. And he overcame the obstacle of people taking black quarterbacks seriously. Thank you, Warren Moon for your leadership and your competitive mindset to overcome obstacles. #bangbrainentertainment#BangBrain#blackexcellence#blackhistorymonth#warrenmoon
