Joe Namath Is Annoying

Anyone else sick of this guy? He just adds to the circus that is the New York Jets. He needs to keep his mouth shut. Yes, we know he's "Broadway Joe." Yes, we know he won Superbowl III when his team were 18-pt underdogs. Yes, we know he led the NFC to prominence when they were the laughing stock of the league... All that was 43 years ago! I still don't think that qualifies him to non-nonchalantly speak his mind.

I feel sorry for Rex Ryan caught in a corner with this person. If Rex hates on Namath, then Rex compromises the image of an American football icon, the forefather of the NYJ's, and hating on an elderly old man. I'm certain Namath knows this, otherwise why would he open his big mouth like this? It's as if he's daring Rex, saying, "Whatcha' gonna do, big boy? Stick a fork in me!?!"

This memorabilia store owner told me that whenever he is doing an autograph signing, he must have a diet coke and Lays chips or he will flip his you know what. One time, they gave him a bottle of water and he left the place. This is not a joke.

He talks too much, and he still thinks he's relevant in this league. He's just as relevant as Rob Lowe :P

What the...? You'd think someone that serious about Diet Coke and Lays would always have some with him...

Brad Johnson?

I say Dilfer is worse. Johnson was inconsistent but had some good days. Look at the 2002 Week 9 game vs the Vikings, he threw 5 TDs and had another game similar to this. He wasn't taht great, but he was better than Dilfer.

haha both were pretty bad...I think Namath is given more credit for the impact of his win rather than his actual performance

I can't stand Namath, but you can't just look at stats - the game has changed. I'm old enough to remember the years when he was considered one of the best in the league. The guy was a leader, and he could chuck the ball with the best of them. Dilfer shouldn't have even been a starter. No comparison.

But to the opening statement, sure he's annoying. He's ALWAYS been annoying. I looked at him back then the way that I look at Brady now: the "pretty boy", fake, jerk of a QB playing for one of the Colt's nemesis', who way too many people claimed was better than the Colts QB. And living in the NY area, I had to hear it all the time, and see THIS:

As a player he was cocky but he was good at his job. The off the field stuff--and the women that threw themselves at him--gave him that nasty attitude that comes out so easily.

He has turned into the guy at your high school that wears his letter jacket and goes to football parties for years after he graduates, and that is very very sad because it is a long fall from a high place.

The worst thing about Namath as, admittedly, somewhat of a stats nut is that he wasn't even good statistically for his own era. His best years boasted some prolific numbers in terms of attempts and yardage but were still pretty average in terms of efficiency and he routinely got blown away by the greater talents of that time (Unitas, Tarkenton, Starr, Jurgenson, Dawson, Griese, etc.).

I agree.... if we subtract Namath's ONE signature, iconic NFL game and the ensuing overblown media sensation.... his win/loss record, mediocre at best QB rating and lackluster TD/INT ratio puts him squarely in the company of a long list of NFL one-hit wonders.

Joe Namath was only truly relevant for 3 or 4 hours on one Sunday in NFL history.... and he's been milking it ever since.

Namath is a :edit:

When the Jets were on Hard Knocks, Broadway Joe stopped by and had "words of wisdom" about how to take a snap from center for Sanchez. It was like the guy was talking out of his behind. I forget exactly what he said but listening to him had me so jacked up it felt like I had 20 Red Bulls in my system at once!

    • Imagine this. The Bills win the Super Bowl. The Bills Mafia might pay off the U.S. deficit!   Not going to lie, I'm really pulling for them. I like to root for teams that haven't won the big one. 
    • I had a bit of time (Not often)    Lets start with this for OUR FAs (estimated cap hit) Hilton 5  Houston 6 Rhodes 5 Carrie 2 Pascal 4 Trey  Burton - 2 Mo - 3 Muhammid - 3 Odum - 3   All other FA we let go   This rolls up to 34-35M   We might be able to shave off a bit from this total, (I went a little high) but probably not much.   Going into the FA / Draft we would all agree that we need to come out with a QB and LT that can play THIS YEAR   If we stay pat at 21, I believe that we could get a starter at LT.  This draft seems to have a nice group of tackles.    The QBs available to us at 21 just arent going to be ready to play this year, and maybe not ever. (50% of first round QBs wash out)   If we traded our 2nd round and next year 1st to Detroit for Stafford  - He would cost us around 20M   20+35 = 55M - We have a 65 M to spend   That leaves us 10M and we will need more than half of that to sign our rookies and have some emergency money for FA during the season   The one good thing..... we start with a 'large' cap compared to other teams.....  they have these same problems with less to start with, which should make some bargains be available     We better draft well            
    • Trade a conditional 2nd rounder for Darnold (start with 3rd and becomes 2nd once he becomes starter and starts for 8 games or something like that) and get it over with as soon as the Jets pick a QB.  1st rounder for Darnold, the Jets are not going to get that with any team. Since our 2nd rounder is later, I would be fine to give them our 2nd rounder straight up, now that I think about it.   Stafford, while he might be the best fit for the next few years, will not come easy. The Lions, if they play hard ball and ask for our first rounder and a future 2nd rounder, would you be fine with that? Carson Palmer is the only one I can think of that got traded that late in his career. In October of 2011, the Bengals traded the "retired" Palmer to the Raiders for a first-round pick in 2012 and a second rounder in 2013. I am thinking that will be the exact comparison the Lions will use, the more and more I think about it.
    • look I've a colts fan since I been 8 years old, I'm now 65 and maybe have another 20 years to wait for another SB ring. Get it done now. Come on now, 2 SB bowls wins in 57 years blows.  
    • Confused,   get Watson from texans. trade brisett and eason  and a pick or two from draft for him and whatever the hell else they want. then pick up a backup qb from the junk pile when they are all released before the season starts.   3  very good runners in the backfield. throw the ball when we cant run.  hope this helps. Maybe not a good idea, maybe a good idea.  We are paying 2 qbs sitting on a bench watching someone play. we should not even need a qb if either brisset or eason was any good ? stop screwing around and get rid of them.
