Namath Says 'Payback Will Be Coming' If Team Falters

Broadway Joe Namath had a warning for big-talking Rex Ryan and the New York Jets last night. They better put up, or 31 teams are going to enjoy making them shut up.

“If they can win, it’s great. I make of it less than what the opposition does. I take it with a good laugh and a good sense of humor. But you look around the league, and 31 other teams don’t like it a little bit.

“You better get out there and put up because (the Jets) are going to have to shut up big-time if they don’t keep putting up.”

Namath, of course, knows a thing or two about making guarantees. He is also right — Ryan’s Jets are now in a situation where a Super Bowl title is all that is acceptable.
