Just thinking to myself since Warren Moon is being inducted in the HOF this weekend. Should the Texans Honor Warren since he did play in the City of Houston? I think it would be very cool if the Texans honored Moon in some way. What does everyone think?

Now that I am done starting at your avatar, no I do not think the Texans should honor him. This is a new team that Moon had no part of, only thing in common here is the city of Houston. Not saying he doesn't deserve recognition or that I hate him because I loved watching the guy play and grew up watching him play, but if anyone should honor him it should be Bud Adams and the tacks...

Nice cheap shot. You're wife runs up 500 K on the credit cards out of boredom, we'll see how you react.

Yeah well I'm sure He feels the same way. Getting escorted off your home feild because of racist death threats left an indelible mark for Moon towards Houston. ...and her fans. I.E. the feeling is probably mutual big guy.

I'd love to see him honored...I grew up watching his Oilers and whether you like it or not, he is a part of HOUSTON football history.

Sure Houston football history, but not Houston Texan's football history, he was an Oiler, never a Texan, if the city wants to honor him that is fine by me.

Hmmm, would I invite my ex-wife over to kick me in the *****. Horrible analogy but releases some of the same emotions for myself. As many others did, I grew up watching that team that packed her bags and moved to the music highway. Maybe in some situations thereís a clean break up, the ex comes over and cooks you dinner, dusts and mops, or whatever is nice. But most splits are hostile and just too awkward to even talk about. And even though I like my ex-wifeís sister, a lot, I wonít talk to her either. Iíd rather kick it with my girlfriend and just let the past go.

Sorry about that, ummmÖ yea for me itís just too awkward even though Warren deserves his upcoming induction. I mean he deserves to be honored but not by the Texans. The TEN. team maybe, but not the Texans.

Can I park my bike in your trunk?

Well said. Ditto, I am in total agreement. Just leave any mention of the Texans out of it. :cool:

No

But if Bob McNair wants to bring him back with all the other old Oilers players like they did a couple years ago for that reunion weekend or whatever it was called, I wouldn't mind that. There's just no need for the Texans to specifically acknowledge his HOF.

Remember our owner was an Oilers season ticket holder from the get-go and he has the same feelings for some of these players as a lot of us old timers do.

Warren does color for the Seahawks radio now so he's kind of busy during the season.

Glad to see Warren get his due. I always thought he was a great player and was underrated if that's possible.

It wasn't just that... he did a lot for the community and then the circumstances just turned against him. Those "new" laws and lawyers were out to make an example out of him. High profile target equals more reputation that translates into more success and money, I am sure that was part of their thinking.

Seattle embraces him as their hero and claims him just the same. Even with McClain's support and whatever the Chronicle is cooking up... it will not match the accolades that Washington throws on him. It fits the city's public progressive image and Moon himself accepts it. They have already made him grand marshall of the Seafair Torchlight parade and the local press has been running stories on him almost daily since then.

There have been three great quarterbacks in Houston: Moon, Blanda, and Pastorini.

Moon was given up to Washington.
Blanda ( and Stabler to an extent ) were passed to Oakland and Al Davis.
Pastorini will go down as robbed with one of the worst calls in the history of sports... not just the NFL.
http://espn.go.com/page2/s/list/worstcalls/010730.html
( for historical purposes : Ron Johnson is the guy covering Mike Renfro. Ron Johnson is one of the guys that replaced Tony Dungy on the 79 Steelers. A Tony Dungy that was a slash QB that most likely never felt like he got a fair chance to be a QB at the upper level )

Moon even says that this place is kinda snake bitten. But after watching the Super Bowl last year... I have to wonder if it's Houston or that 12th Man thing.

Calling Pastorini a great QB is a bit of stretch. I was very young during that era but I still remember getting nervous everytime he stepped back to throw the ball. He will always be remember as the guy that handed off to Earl.

As much as SheTexan loves Moon and wants to honor him in any and every way, I have to disagree. Sorry Grandma, I know you own every conceivable Moon item.

I loved the guy when he was with the Oilers but looking back, the man was a choke artist and I am not just talking about what he did to his wife. In a big game, everytime the game was on the line he threw a pick. I remember being able to call a pick right before it happened. I would say, ok, this is about the time Moon throws a pick, and sure enough it would happen. I used to irritate Vikings fans doing the same thing. When I lived out of state I would go to a sports bar to watch the Oilers every week. There were always Vikings fans in there watching the Vikings. After Moon was traded to them I used to sit there and tell the Viking fans "Hey, the game's on the line, watch, he is going to throw a pick.". No joke, I remember being right at least 2 or 3 times. Those fans eventually told me to stop doing that because I was "jinxing" him. LOL, I knew from years of watching the guy. Moon had his great moments but he didn't have the "heart of a champion" at the NFL level, only in Canada.

Ditto Hookem, Ditto. It's not that I don't recognize the talent and the accomplishments but the man was a crunch time pick machine. I read your post just now and I swear except for the part about living out of state I could have written that.

well I suppose there will always be a few in the bunch. The guy is going to sit in Canton forever. I know there are a lot of detractors and supporters of all kinds of crazy stuff... like I would hear Elvin doesn't belong in the HOF and Fouts is sitting there. I imagine some will always say Favre is a pick machine too. However I doubt it will matter all that much when he hits the stretch for Canton in a few years.

The deal with Pastorini is that he was in the Pro Bowl and a leader that made a bad team good in 74-75, long before Earl showed up. You didn't have to be there to know about it either. Elvin devoted a few chapters in his book on the subject.

When Pastorini walked off that field in 1980... it was another HOF Texan saying he was robbed, not the press.

But no matter how much time passes, it won't dim the memories of those who participated or watched.

Ask any Houston fan what memory stands out the most, and he or she will mention Pastorini's apparent touchdown pass to Renfro in the AFC Championship Game after the 1979 season that wasn't allowed by the officials. It created a controversy that exists today among fans in both cities.

"After that game, I walked off the field with Joe Greene on one side of me and Dwight White on the other, and they were apologizing," Pastorini said about two members of the Steel Curtain defensive line. "They thought they should have lost that game.
