Joe Namath rips Jets, Wildcat
By James Walker
In the least shocking news of the week, Joe Namath is back to ripping the New York Jets.
The former Jets quarterback and Hall of Famer didn't hold back during an interview with Adam Schein on Sirius NFL radio. It doesn't appear "Broadway Joe" is a big fan of the acquisition of popular backup quarterback Tim Tebow.
"I'm concerned with how the Jets are trying to build a team and win a championship," Namath said. "They seem more interested in the headlines."
But Namath did not stop there. He also had choice words for the Jets' offense and the Wildcat package. New York has yet to score a touchdown this preseason.
"The only reason to run the Wildcat is if your offense isn't working," Namath said, according to Schein.
The good news is Namath predicts the Jets to win nine or 10 games, mostly due to the defense. That's higher than most people in our AFC East community project. The AFC East blog set the over/under at 8.5 wins, and more than 70 percent took the under.
Is "Broadway Joe" right about the Jets, their Wildcat package and win total this season?
