Former NFL QB Warren Moon believes Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is getting too much of the blame for the team's struggles this season and claims race could be a factor. "I heard somebody compare him to Vince Young. It's the same old crap - it's always a comparison of one black to another black. I get tired of it. I get tired of defending it," Moon said. "If you want to compare him to someone because of his demeanor, compare him to Jay Cutler. There are a lot of guys who whine and moan. Cam's not biting anybody's head off or pushing his linemen. He's just disgruntled, and not handling losing well, because, think about it, he basically didn't lose in college," Moon added.

We'll also talk about the probability of him being a backup and the situation of having a good veteran like him in that role. We'll cover the gamut," Billick said. "Warren is very analytical. He's not rash. The fact that I can sit and talk to him and his wife directly is a plus." The Ravens don't want to be caught without a QB in case they can't work out a deal with the Lions for Scott Mitchell.
Thu, 04 Mar 1999 09:45:00 -0800
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that because of their interest in QB Jim Harbaugh and also their confidence they can get him they have all but broken off talks with QB Warren Moon.

Wed, 03 Mar 1999 09:50:00 -0800
The Baltimore Sun reports the QB wheel continues to spin in Baltimore. The Ravens and Lions continue to work on hammering out a Scott Mitchell trade while the article speculates that Jim Harbaugh could be given his release so he can join the Chargers, rather than being traded to SD. "Someone is going to pull their finger out of the dike, and it will all kick into place," Ravens coach Brian Billick said. "Right now, the pivotal thing is what Detroit wants to do. The potential for Scott Mitchell being here is substantial. We're moving toward that." The hangup remains compensation for Mitchell. Billick has still not ruled out the possibility of signing Warren Moon as he wants to bring four QBs to training camp.
Wed, 03 Mar 1999 00:10:00 -0800

"I sense in him a certain desire for closure," Steinberg said. "But Warren's always been very deliberate. At his age, he's deliberate and selective, but he's impressed by what he saw" with the Lions.
Sat, 27 Feb 1999 11:40:00 -0800
The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens are very happy with their signing of OL Harry Swayne as they can now focus their first-round draft pick on a different position. VP Ozzie Newsome says he has discussed trading up with the Colts at No. 4 and the Rams at No. 6 but that despite earlier reports he has not talked to the Redskins about moving to No. 5. (Strange we would like No. 4 or No. 6 but not No. 5?) Newsome remains optimistic the team can still swing a trade with the Lions for Scott Mitchell. "I spoke yesterday with Chuck Schmidt (Lions chief operating officer) and there is a willingness to make the trade," Newsome said. "We're still working on compensation, but I'm optimistic. As for the addition of Harry Swayne, this eliminates us taking an offensive lineman with the first pick and allows us to select a player who will have an impact on our future." At TE the team is still interested in Seattle's Christian Fauria, ex-Giants TE Aaron Pierce and possibly the Patriots Lovett Purnell (see below). Saints OL Clarence Jones cancelled his meeting with the Ravens when Swayne was signed. Coach Brian Billick also confirmed he has some interest in QB Warren Moon. The team has been discussing a trade with San Diego for QB Jim Harbaugh but acquiring Mitchell from the Lions may be a first step to dealing Harbaugh.
Fri, 26 Feb 1999 21:45:00 -0800
XTRA and KFMB are reporting the Chargers are making Jim Harbaugh their top choice to be their QB next year. They have talked about a two-year contract with him. The team has put Warren Moon and John Friesz on the back burner so they can attempt to make a trade for Harbaugh. Last week the Chargers had said that Moon was the team's number one priority they wanted to sign. But after they met a few weeks ago with Moon he wanted to shop around a little more. This did not sit well with the Chargers. While Moon was looking at other teams Baltimore gave Harbaugh's agent the go ahead to talk to other teams about a trade, and San Diego was his first choice. It is not known what it would cost San Diego to trade for him as Baltimore would like to acquire another QB before trading Harbaugh. The Chargers have now said that it will probably be sometime next week before anything is done. San Diego still plans to bring in Mark Rypien next week.
Fri, 19 Feb 1999 21:40:00 -0800

The AP reports that after visiting with the Chargers earlier in the week QB Warren Moon did confirm he would not mind playing for the Steelers and their offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride who is his old head coach. The Steelers however cannot offer Moon the two main things he is seeking - money and a starting QB job. The Steelers have said they are sticking with QB Kordell Stewart as their starter but they may want to replace Mike Tomczak as their backup. The Steelers may also want to talk with QB Jeff Hostetler who was just released by the Redskins. The Bucs, in addition to the Browns (already reported earlier) may be a team that would like to talk to Moon. Again, he'd only be a backup to Trent Dilfer.
Tue, 16 Feb 1999 13:45:00 -0800
