Continuing the latest great debate — Mark Sanchez vs. Tim Tebow — a certain iconic yet heavily outspoken former Jet made it clear whose side he’s on.
Per ESPNNewYork.com, Joe Namath stated emphatically Tuesday that Sanchez is the better quarterback, a glowing endorsement for the embattled fourth-year pro.
“There’s no doubt about it, at this point certainly,” Namath said Tuesday at the United Way Gridiron Gala in Manhattan. “And Mark’s going to get better. He’s only going into his fourth year. Golly, I remember a team that won a championship with a quarterback in his fourth year. I hope that happens again.”
Gee, I wonder who he’s referring to?
After initially bashing the Jets’ decision to trade for Tebow, Broadway Joe now thinks “it could work,” adding Sanchez shouldn’t think twice about his competitor.
“I’d be tickled to death. Are you kidding? Mark knows he’s the better quarterback and bring on the competition,” Namath said.
