You know that saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”? Well, it might be high time for Mr. Joe Namath to start following that rule.
We all know by now that the Jets love a headline. Ever since the Rex Ryan era began, for all of the success the Jets have achieved, you can probably come up with double the amount of headlines that the team has created. Be it from the players, the head coach, or the GM with the moves he has/has not made, the Jets are always on the back pages.
However, Joe Namath, with his public comments going against the team, are just not helping.
Last season, Joe started his public comments against the team, and we chronicled the situation here at the Jet Press. His ire was drawn primarily at head coach Rex Ryan, and his propensity for making guarantees that he can’t keep. He would point out how bad it was for the team, and did so by directly calling Ryan out.
This year, he has turned his attention to the Tim Tebow trade, and the way the team is going about their business as a whole.
