New York Jets legend Joe Namath isn’t shy when it comes to talking about his former franchise. He spoke a lot about the Jets last season, and it was often nothing to feel good about.
In a recent interview with NFL.com, Joe Namath was asked what he thought about the current status of the team he helped put on the map.
“I’m concerned with how the Jets are trying to build a team and win a championship. They seem more interested in making headlines.”
I normally don’t agree when former players speak negatively about teams they used to play for, but given the last few years, (Since Rex Ryan took over as headcoach) it’s easy to see where Namath is coming from. And while Rex Ryan came very close to getting his team to the Superbowl 2 years straight, it really looks as though they took huge steps in the wrong direction. Everything from refusing to resign good players, to all the arrogant statements often made by a coach or player.
Only time will tell if this team can get it together.
