Warren Moon on Chris Petersen: ‘We got the best guy available for the job’

Had a chance to catchup with Hall of Famer Warren Moon and talk about Washington’s newest coach Chris Petersen.

(On Petersen) “People look at Boise State and say they were finesse and they ran the gadget plays and all of those different things, but I tell you what, his teams will hit you. And they play good defense. They’re physical on defense and most of the guys that he puts in the NFL are defensive guys. I like that part of his style.

(Who are those NFL guys?) “Well you look at the guy that separated or broke Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone (Chicago’s Shea McClellin). He’s from Boise State. That’s the first guy that came to mind. They’ve had some good corners. They’ve had some good players on that side of the ball to go along with those receivers too like Titus Young and (Austinn) Pettis and guys like that.”

(So you like the idea of getting back to the old ways of doing thing?) “I really like this hire for a lot of reasons, but mostly because I think this takes us back to what has made Washington so successful which is being the tougher team, running the football and playing physical defense,” Moon said. “There were a lot of people that we could have brought in here and I’m sure most of them would have done a fine job. But considering where we’re at right now, Chris Petersen is the best person we could have gone out and hired.”
