Joe Namath says Sanchez should be angry

By James Walker


You just knew it was a matter of time Wednesday before New York Jets Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath weighed in on the Tim Tebow trade/no trade.

Namath offered his take on the situation and thinks it will affect Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez.

"I think Sanchez should be angry about what’s taken place," Joe Namath said on ESPN's 1050, via ESPN New York’s Jane McManus.

New York and Denver have hit a snag in the trade, because the Jets didn't realize they would have to pay $5 million to complete the swap. Denver wants the trade to go through, and the Jets -- for five million obvious reasons -- are backing out.

Namath issued harsh criticism of the trade, calling it "a publicity stunt." Namath said he hopes the trade falls through, which is a strong possibility.

"Absolutely!" Namath said of voiding the trade. "And I'm a Tim Tebow fan. But I'm a bigger Jet fan than I am a Tim Tebow fan."
