    You're also flawed in thinking that yardage numbers picked up in garbage time, after a team has been worn down and the game decided equated into what he would do with prime time carries. Evry single back, QB, WR etc wants to be on the field, all the time. Jordan wanted to take carries away from Martin, but thats fine. Martin did the same.

    Coaches and the media that votes for the Hall all apparently are Martinettes and are wrong. Sorry, not agreeing. Not doing the number crunching till you puke thing, Martin is what he is, no one can argue, he's a HOF RB.
    I never said I wanted Jordan but if the Jets didn't they shouldn't have wasted a 2nd rd pick in 2001 on him.. My problem is with Martinette's who never fault Martin for anything.. Martin 3.5 ypc great year any other Jet back 3.5 they suck.. It wasn't Martin himself I had a problem with it's the Martinette's who exempt him for things they kill other backs for.. It's like sport media that kill the Jets for things they would never kill other teams for..

    I'll admit I was not around when Namath played, however I did see him on a re-run of the Brady Bunch when I was just a toddler and all I can say is.. YUM! I know this adds nothing to the conversation, but if looks gets you into the HoF I can totally understand why he's in the HoF!

    Yes Joe Namath belongs in the HOF. He was a great QB and a huge star. He was excellent on the Brady Bunch as well.

    Anybody who thinks he was "lousy" is out of their freaking minds or is too young to have seen him play football. Just ask his teammates and those who played against him.

    The question should not be should Joe Namath be in the hall of fame. The question should be why is anyone even bother with this silly thread?
