NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Jets legend Joe Namath is arguably the most beloved player in franchise history, but he certainly hasn’t been shy about criticizing his former team over the last year.
Though Broadway Joe said he felt “awful” about his rocky relationship with the Jets back in January, he hasn’t exactly kept his opinions to himself over the past few months.
When the Jets acquired Tim Tebow, the Super Bowl Champion dismissed the move as nothing more than a “publicity stunt.” He also took it upon himself to question the hiring of Tony Sparano as offensive coordinator.
The Hall of Famer was up to his old tricks again on Wednesday, questioning Gang Green about their approach and their desire to win.
“I’m concerned with how the Jets are trying to build a team and win a championship,” Namath told SiriusXM Radio. “They seem more interested in the headlines.”
And he’s still not sold on Sparano’s offensive plan.
“The only reason to run the Wildcat is if your offense isn’t working,” Namath added.
Namath and head coach Rex Ryan engaged in a feud last September when he said that it’s “rather alarming” that the coach insists on letting his players believe that “they’re better than they are.”
Ryan responded by saying that he’s not going to differ from his coaching style just because “Joe Namath said something.”
