Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon caused a little bit of a controversy earlier in the week when he claimed that race is playing a factor in why people are picking apart Cam Newton prior to the draft.
Moon set the record straight on Friday morning making it clear — kind of — that he doesn’t feel it’s totally a racist situation.
“I just think it has racial overtones,” he told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf. “I’m not going to say it’s totally racial. They just keep piling on. I don’t understand why they keep piling on. This is a guy that is a very special talent. That has done some very special things and they just keep trying to cut up every part of his game. There is no way a guy can be as successful as he’s been, whatever level he’s been on, and have all these different flaws that they’re talking about right now.”
