Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon said if he had a free pass to put someone in the Hall of Fame who currently isn't, it would be Donovan McNabb.
Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon told Talk of Fame Network that if he had a free pass to put someone into the Hall of Fame who hasn't yet been inducted, he would choose quarterback Donovan McNabb.
Over his 13-year NFL career, McNabb was a six-time Pro Bowler. He spent 11 years with the Philadelphia Eagles, retiring as the franchise's all-time leader in wins, attempts, completions, passing yards and passing touchdowns.
"I would love to see [McNabb] in the Pro Football Hall of Fame" said Moon. "I thought his career was exceptional. He went to four or five championship NFC games, went to a Super Bowl, had a great touchdown-to-interception ratio as far as his passer rating and all that. Just a great competitor."
McNabb retired having thrown for 37,276 yards, 234 touchdowns, 117 interceptions and a 59.0 percent completion rate.
With McNabb at quarterback, the Eagles went to the playoffs in eight of his 11 seasons and were the 2004 NFC champions.
"That guy had his team in a position to win a championship for (many) years in a row," Moon said, "and that’s hard to do. People don’t really give you the credit you deserve until after they see you’re gone and see what happens after you’re gone. They (the Eagles) went through some very lean years after he left."
