Once again Joe hit the bulls eyes. What I find hard to believe is all who are Joe's critics, how "the game has passed him by, how he should go find somewhere and sit down" the only QB who put us on the NFL map. Suddenly are all jumping on his bandwagon, they all want to hear the master speak on their behalf.
Yes! you Nick Mangold and Mark Sanchez I remember what you said about 2-3 months ago.....Oh am so fed up with Tannenbaum/Sanchez/Ryan/Sparano....aaaaaaahhhhhhh! I am tired of this lame FO..@#$%^&*(...a waist of my hard earn money. fuggggggit!
anytime Namath opens his mouth and rips the jets, he is dead on. nothing is going to change.. the jets are a losing franchise. 43 yrs of misery.
In fairness to the Jets, since Day 1, they have said Tebow is the BACKUP QB and COULD play up to 20 snaps per game. Key words: BACKUP QB and COULD.
How many backup QBs play regularly? Save for injured QB fill-ins, Tebow has played the most of any backup in the league.
And does "could" mean definitely will? No.
Go read any article regarding the trade which was printed BEFORE Tanny, Rex, etc., addressed the media for the first time about the trade -- all of those writers speculated Tebow was going to be used in the wildcat just because Sparano (who is wrongly credited with bringing the wildcat to the NFL) was with the Jets. It was the media who first brought up the wildcat scenario to the public. And when Rex said, yeah sure it's gonna happen, we all expected it to be a major part of the offense. And when it's not, we as fans are being "disrespected", as Namath says? Show me a coach/team that is always honest with its fan base. Does Namath expect each season ticket holder to receive a copy of the playbook, too?
With that being said, I think Tebow should be used more, no doubt. And this Jets front office makes me scratch my head more and more each day. There isn't much talent, the FO seems confused at how to do things sometimes, but to say the fans aren't getting a "fair shake" because Tebow isn't on the field more is just stupid.
I don't think we should use him MORE, but I think we need to use him SMARTER. The way we're running the Tebowcat, Defenses know all they have to do is clog up the middle and they'll be successful. As much as I hate to say it, you have to let Tim THROW once in awhile. If you don't, you'll achieve nothing but 2 yard runs.
The homers and those who simply wear blinders have routinely criticized Namath, calling him clueless, a has-been, a drunk, etc. Truth is, he knows a helluva lot more about what's going on than most, if not all, on this board. Yes, the truth hurts. But it's the truth.
It's very sad to say but old Joe makes some very valid points even the most harden homers, as much as they deny it, know a lot of what he is pointing out is on the mark.
I didnt like Namath yapping about the Jets all the time, but he's telling it like it is. The unadulterated truth. It's as obvious as day now that this team wants headlines and PSL purchases, not Championships. Man I hope Woody sells the team one day and we start over.
^ Is that in Japan?
They are honestly not putting him in any reasonable position to succeed - they do NOT want to use him.
I wish our owner cared as much about winning as Joe does.:(
I used to really get annoyed by Joe ... But recently I find myself really liking him ... I feel like since the Namath TV special he has had a rebirth.
