First, he called out the Jets for the Tim Tebow trade. He called the trade a “publicity stunt”, and said that, “The only reason to run the Wildcat is if your offense isn’t working.” He went on to give his opinion on how the team is doing business as a whole, saying they are more interested in the headlines and not as interested in winning a championship.
Broadway Joe is the greatest Jets player ever. He brought us our Super Bowl, and we haven’t even been back since. Until we win another one, everybody else can only be the second best.
That being said, Joe Namath also has a passion for his former team. Last season, I kind of considered Namath a bit of a loud mouth, but I have thought about my position. Joe Namath loves his team, and he isn’t a bad guy. His comments come from a deep love for the New York Jets. He does ultimately want the Jets to succeed, and his thoughts come from that place. He is not trying to be a problem.
That being said, his comments are a problem, and are hypocritical as well. He is certainly entitled to his opinions, Joe knows football. Especially if he is asked questions, he is certainly entitled to answer them. But, the way he is putting them out there is hypocritical.
