    Namath chimes in

    Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath, who led the Jets to their only Super Bowl title in 1969, was among those unhappy with the trade.

    "I'm just sorry that I can't agree with this situation. I think it's just a publicity stunt. I can't go with it. I think it's wrong," Namath told "The Michael Kay Show" on ESPN1050 in New York. "I don't think they know what they're doing over there."

    Asked if he hoped the deal would ultimately fall through, Namath said, "Absolutely."

    "And I'm a Tim Tebow fan, but I'm a bigger Jet fan than I am a Tim Tebow fan," Namath said

    If Joe really made that deal with the Devil, the contract is due

    I'll be honest. I can't stand this guy anymore. I don't want Tebow anywhere near the Jets, but you don't see all-time Yankee greats bashing moves they make.

    That's because they are all still on the payroll :D

    Joe is critical but he also praises..Just hasn't had much to praise the past 12 months

    The Yankees have a better history with making smart moves. Hard for a former Yankee to bash when they have 27 Rings.

    Tannenbaum is a complete idiot.

    alright how about Cal Ripken and Brooks Robinson. The Orioles are a mess, don't hear a peep out of them. Heck what about Tom Seaver?

    Should I do my "Joe can say what he wants, but deserves what he gets" tirade?

    That makes things better, Joe. Tell us how bad things are.

    Thanks for your support.

    ^This.

    I know Namath loves the Jets, I believe that. But doesn't he realize that coming out and talking like this is just pushing the Jets deeper into their already gargantuan hole? Give it a few days, man. They've got enough on their plate for today.

    At least he cares about the Jets, and I wholeheartedly agree with his statement.

    I disagree with Joe Namath, but I respect the fact that he tells it the way it is. He always has.
