to show the world he wasn't playing. Then, he came to Houston and
showed the NFL what they missed out on. As soon as Bud could, he
shut Moon down for Cody "Can't-Stay-Healthy-Worth-A-Damn" Carlson,
Bucky Richardson, Chris Chandelier etc. Bud's team didn't become competitive
again until another young Black warrior, Steve Mcnair, was FINALLY given a shot after
TWO FULL SEASONS on the bench.

Warren went on to become an all-time great by finishing up strong
in Minnesota and Seattle.

After Warren Moon, there was no longer a question mark on whether
Black men had the brains and leadership to lead an NFL squad to victory
by playing the heralded position of Quarterback.

We saw the likes of Randall Cunningham, Donavan McNabb, Steve Mcnair,
Michael Vick, Josh Freeman, Cam Newton, RGIII, and many more rise to
prominence in no small part due to the perseverance and assertion of
manhood provided by the First Black Quarterback to be inducted into the Pro
Football Hall of Fame, Harold Warren Moon.


You'll note that Dex didn't include "Mighty" Vince Young on his list.
