    Wow - I don't understand all this hate on Broadway Joe. His comments have proven to be pretty much on the mark in regards to Sparano's job as OC.

    As supporting evidence CBNY remarked that senior football guys in the league (GM, HC, etc) were laughing at the Jets upon the Sparano hire. They thought it was terrible.

    Seriously, what has Sparano's offense done that's the least bit innovative or even competent The Jets often look like a bad high school team on offense.

    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.

    Thats Sanchezesk! Damn Joe, say it aint so!
    Just goes to show you the unbelievable scrutiny that QBs in NY play under. Could Joe survive in this era with his over the top brashness? Who knows, but he would be hated & vilified after his 1st poor game. The coverage of my beloved NFL is beyond the pale & only getting worse! I mean seriously NFL AM? Starts at 6:00AM with a bunch of blowhards babbling away, making stupid predictions & pretty much just ruining the sport.
    You know what's funny about Joe. The Jets were at their best when acted a bit more of a game manager, minimizing his mistakes. On the SB run, he played far more cautious, and let the D and the running game really help shoulder the load.

    If he had done that again in 69-70, maybe the Jets are the first AFL/AFC team to win 2 SB.

    They scapegoated Schotty last season. Who will it be this year? Eventually, Tanny and Rex will have to look at themselves.

I think they were 4 th once,and are looking to improve the position again this off season.
    I did not like it then and I am unfortunately right

    Respectfully disagree ... Sanchez stinks like a week old diaper pail.

    Surprised that no one has responded with any rebuttal to this.
