    Joe Namath - Los Angeles Rams - Video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phIkR3TOOjs

    Looks like this video just surfaced on YouTube a month ago. I've never seen him play in video as a Ram. Nice throw at 1:40.

    While we're at it, the last Jets game played at Shea Stadium (last Terry Bradshaw game, too).

    I'm stunned.

    Someone did research.

    I love The New York Jets.

    Another Shea memory. First time I've seen the actual TV footage of OJ breaking the 2000 yard mark.

    Thank you for posting these. It struck me about the Namath video with the Rams that in that game he was no doubt working behind the best offensive line he'd had since the Jets Super Bowl 8 years before. In fact, that same Rams group got to the Super Bowl just 2 seasons later and gave the Steelers a hell of a fight in that game. As to the Bradshaw video, talk about bittersweet. I was at that game - the last one at Shea, and as usual the Steeler fans were everywhere and loud, as you can hear with the TD catch which was right in front of where I was sitting. The mood for Jets fans that day was downright ugly, and it had little to do with the game itself - a foregone conclusion in an already-lost season. The 1983 season had turned into a Hindenburg following a trip to the AFC Championship game just the season before. And the cherry on top of it all was the announcement during the season that the Jets were packing up and leaving New York to play in another team's home. After that last game, the stands and field were trashed and riot cops had to be brought in. I'll never forget that scene.

    I watched the O.J. game on t.v. - again at the end of a forgettable football year. Kind of sucks when all you've got to root for is someone else's players.

    I was at that one -- sitting in the endzone in an icestorm watching simpson run through the jets like a knife through butter (pun intended)

    Namath's very last TD as a player occurs at 4:15 and it's a thing of beauty. Namath's poor play in the following two games got him benched and he never touched the ball again.

    This game was his last day in the sun as an NFL player.

    Incredible that he lasted as long as he did with those knees. The arm was as strong as ever, though.

    Joe's body language clearly shows he was not happy.

    Very nice job SAR! Brought back some wonderful memories of my boyhood idol Joe, and hearing the great Boozer calling the game. Namaths last game was against the Bears on a Monday Night. I remember Joe getting crushed by the Bear defense, and the Ram offensive line unable to protect Joe. All Alex KarRas did that whole game was say how washed up Namath was, and that he couldn't play anymore. The guy was a total tool who hated Namath and the old AFL. Karras's constant bashing of Joe on a national Monday Night game was one the reasons he was benched, and never played another down that season. The fans and media put pressure on Knox after that game to go with Pat Haden the rest of the season.

    You could see that Namath still had a lazer for an arm, and his quick release after all those years of taking punishment. I wish he would have stayed a couple of more years with the Jets backing up and teaching Todd in the late 70's.

    I never knew Emerson Boozer broadcasted. He's now the director of parks and recreation in my town.
