Jets' Smith still confident despite rough stretch

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Geno Smith believes he is still the answer. Yes, he knows he needs to get a lot better, and fast. But he also thinks the New York Jets' search for a franchise quarterback, a mostly fruitless task since the days of Joe Namath, could end right in front of their eyes. Despite the boos, increasing criticisms and calls for Michael Vick. ''Well, that...

Joe Namath Ask How Many Ways Can a Team Beat Themselves and the New York Jets Answer

Joe Namath is a living legend; not just for New York Jets fans but for lovers of the game in general. He was one of the first larger than life personalities that the NFL ever saw and has not really stopped since the end of his playing days (when you're a legend you don't have to). While the man bleeds Jets green and will back the Jets with his dying breath he is like many...

Joe Namath on Manziel: “He’s Got to Live His Life, Man”

This is pretty simple to me. If Manziel is a good player the critics can huff and puff all they want, it won’t matter. If he falters everything he does off the field will be used against him. I am assuming he knows this and doesn’t care, which I respect. If he is going to flame out or ball out, he is going to do it his way. Not surprisingly Joe Namath has his back. Here is the...
