Former QB Warren Moon Says Warner will be Back in 2010

There’s still a lot of drama about the decision that Kurt Warner is going to make, will he retire – or not? Today on ESPN former Oilers and Vikings QB Warren Moon, a HOF QB, says that there is no way that Warner is walking away:

“Not at all,” Moon predicted during a phone conversation Tuesday. “In a month he’ll be healed up and ready to go again.”

There will be some drama, of course, as Warner works through the emotions most older players feel after a rigorous season extended by the playoffs. The Cardinals will cross their fingers and hope Warner comes back. The rest of the NFC West will hope for a quick and permanent retirement.

And it’s always possible Warner will walk away.

But Moon, 53, can’t envision Warner retiring unless a medical issue prevents the quarterback from playing or Warner simply loses his fire for the game. Moon points to Derrick Mason last offseason and Ed Reed this offseason as older players feeling what older players often feel for moments that are ultimately fleeting.

“If you polled guys over 30 or 32 years old in the league, I guarantee 60 or 70 percent are considering retiring when the season is over,” Moon said. “Ask those same guys in March and that would drop to maybe 10 percent.”
