Joe Namath: Jets 'More Interested In Headlines' Than Winning

Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath, the most famous player in New York Jets history, was back at his usual grind on Wednesday. That means Namath was slinging darts at how the current Jets organization does business.

"I’m concerned with how the Jets are trying to build a team and win a championship," Namath said on SiriusXM Radio. "They seem more interested in the headlines."

↵

You can accuse Namath of talking too much when it comes to the Jets. He seems to always have something to say about Rex ryan, the organization, Tim Tebow or just about anyone else in the organization.

↵

Oh, speaking of Tebow, owner Woody Johnson pretty much went out and proved Namath's point during an interview at the Republican National Convention, saying "You can never have too much Tebow."

↵

You can say a lot of things about Namath. What you can't say is that he is wrong about the way the Jets appear to approach business. With the Jets it seems like life is good as long as they are in the headlines -- for good reasons or bad ones.
