Since the glory days of Broadway Joe, finding a franchise quarterback has been an elusive and often frustrating undertaking for a team that has rarely had a dominant player at the position.
“Class, leadership, righteousness,” Jets legend Joe Namath said of the retiring shortstop. “A whole lot of good things, man.”
“Just looking at him physically, what’s outstanding about his running ability? What’s outstanding about his passing ability? Nothing to me is outstanding about it, but it’s pretty good.”
During his Hall of Fame career, Joe Namath made a habit out of carving up opponents. Today, Joe Willie is grilling up some outstanding delicacies thanks to the Rapid Cooker and Namath New York Steaks.
Call it Joe being Joe if you want, but Namath has his opinions when it comes to the Jets’ quarterback competition.
Joe Namath was down in Florida on Monday to take in a Yankees spring training game and I think it’s safe to assume that Joe Girardi really enjoyed seeing ‘Broadway Joe’ spending time with his grandchild.
“He’s special,” Namath said. “Some of the things in life that athletes, people in the public eye go through, I can relate to a bit. But his career, where he’s been, what he’s done, I can’t relate to all that.”
Legendary trend-setter Joe Namath is rocking a new look — Yankees pinstripes, old-school style with the high socks and hiked-up pants.
According to the Internet, the flashy fur coat worn by Joe Namath during the coin toss was one of the big stars of Super Bowl XLVIII. It even has its own Twitter account.
Broadway Joe looked the part. Joe Namath, New York football royalty as MVP of the third Super Bowl for the Jets, wore a fur coat for the coin toss.
Namath understands why more parents these days are reluctant to let their children play football. “I can’t blame them. I can’t blame them,” he told The Associated Press on Saturday.
Jets legend Joe Namath says he’s “improved” after going through “some things medically” that could be tied to concussions suffered during his playing days.
It was Lamar Hunt who started the American Football League, and without his commitment and deep pockets, the NFL would never have had legitimate competition and would have remained a closed, old-boys club for many years.
“You do not put your quarterback in there in that situation, not the guy that is probably going to be your starter, behind a makeshift offensive line in a preseason game,” Namath said. “Come on. There was no rhyme or reasoning to that.”
One of the best arms in the world is under team control for at least the next five years. Enjoy it while it’s dominating the National League instead of worrying about details that have little to do with winning or losing baseball games.
