    Me too, this is not the Patriots ... Super Bowl QB's have a personality and are allowed to express a personal opinion.

    ps. I've seen the gif of Brady dancing, Joe's shagadelically cooler despite Brady's armful of trophies.

I think they were 4 th once,and are looking to improve the position again this off season.
    I'm pretty cofident sporano was the hc, not the gm.

    If he wants to be revered as this great legend, he can't turn around and mother**** the franchise that made him famous in a public forum. He's only making it worse by having the face of Jets history saying he knows better.

    Considering that teams league wide have been calling us ordinary for years, now on both sides of the ball, I say we achieved that long ago.

    I think this mentality is about, oh, a few decades late. Good luck trying to win a championship in today's NFL where through rule changes give precedence to the offense over the defense. Most teams have had head coaches smart enough to figure this out and therefore go with an all out passing attack that wins games and divisions. We don't.

    Namath has been right all along about the jets. I love how you guys think you know more about what goes on in football then one of te greatest players who ever lived.

    Tony Sparano has never been an offensive coordinator in his life. Joe is surprised that we would hire an oc whos never been an oc before.

    And joes right.

    I never liked Sparano's style, too much fist-pumping with the Tom Selleck moustache. However I was hoping he could coach, I don't watch the Mammals,so I have to defer to your judgement on this.

    And Joe's right.
    Well hell, we hired Herman Edwards, a d-backs coach to be a head coach ... that turned out alright ... Herms now on the Coors Light Express train.

    Parcells lost his fast ball in the nineties ( Belichick is holding it in his back pocket).

    You need a very good/great QB to run a wide open offense.

    We don't have one.

    Let's not forget that people in football all have differences of opinions. Doesn't make them right or wrong necessarily, it's just their opinions. If there weren't different opinions, Rex would be HC in Baltimore right now.

    Having different opinions is the way of the world. You can agree or disagree but in the end, the only proof in football comes in the form of the Lombardi Trophy and championship rings.

    It didn't take him that long. Him and the '69 Jets won the whole
    dang thing (the superbowl) on the first try. Sanchez cant touch this.

    The jets did not qualify for the playoffs in the year prior to the SB win. They finished 8-5-1 in second place. So, I think you have it backwards...SB win and then a loss in the playoffs the following year.

    With all honesty Namath was extraordinarily talented, but he wasted his best years with bonehead plays and risk taking that cost the Jets dearly. In the year prior to the SB win, he blew a 17-0 to eventual division winner Houston after the Jets had a 17-0 lead throwing 6 int and 2 pick 6's. He then threw 10 int (5 in one game) in 3 losses as the Jets finshed the season on a 1-3 run. Seems he was more interested in chasing his 4000 yard season than winning football games.

    BTW after being the "hero" of SB III ( a game in which Matt Snell and the D were the real most valuable players), the Jets won the division and met the Chiefs in the conference playoff where the great Joe Namath was 14/40 for 164 yards and 4 ints in a 13-6 loss to KC.

    I just think the record should be complete. Namath is not some sort of football genius. He didn't understand D's. He was super talented and rode his physical skills win, lose, or draw.

    First off Namath lost his fastball in the 70's.

    Second, what is Bellichick's record without Parcells or tom Brady by his side? Want to match up Sparano's record in Miami with Bellichick's record in Cleveland? Didn't think so.

    And Parcells in Dallas drafted Ware and Romo and his drafts for the Jets were pretty amazing as well.

    Times have changed, Mr. Namath.

    You mean other than the fact that he's been spot on correct with just about everything he's said about the Jets this season?

    In all seriousness, why do we have to give a f*ck about what Namath says?

    Sure he won a SB, but that doesn't make his opinion golden. This idolization of Namath needs to stop.....
