MOON HAD plenty
of good years in front of him after this story ran, although he didn't spend
them in Houston. On April 14, 1994, the Oilers traded him to Minnesota, where
he played three seasons, making the Pro Bowl twice. He went on to Seattle for
two years and another Pro Bowl in '97, which was his ninth season with more
than 3,000 yards passing. In '99 Moon signed with Kansas City, where he spent
two years as a backup before retiring at age 44. Though he never did make the
Super Bowl, Moon tallied 49,325 NFL passing yards, fourth alltime behind Dan
Marino, Brett Favre and John Elway despite having spent six years in the
marriage with Felicia would reveal an uglier side. In 1995 Moon was arrested
for spousal abuse; he was acquitted on the charges after Felicia testified at
trial that she had started the fight. Following the verdict the two appeared on
Larry King Live and made public the many rough patches in their marriage. Asked
why they had never divorced, Felicia responded, "I felt that we could beat
the odds. We could put our lives back together." Ultimately they couldn't.
In 2001, after 19 years of marriage, the couple filed for divorce.
Moon stayed close
to football after his retirement. In '04 he began working the Seahawks' radio
broadcasts. In fact, he was with Seattle in Detroit for Super Bowl XL last
February when he learned that the league that had once showed so little belief
in his quarterbacking abilities had admitted him to its Hall of Fame.
