Namath doesn't make another guarantee

There was a time not long ago when former Jets coach quarterback Joe Namath couldn’t care less about the struggles of his former team.

But now that he’s on the wagon, he’s on the bandwagon, too.

Namath tells Newsday (via Sean Leahy of USA Today) that he believes the Jets can beat the Colts on Sunday.

But Namath offered no guarantees this time around.

“I believe the Jets feel the way we felt at the time: ‘Don’t be telling us we can’t do something,'” Namath said.  “They’re
continuing to prove that with the last couple of games on the road and
the way they’ve grown as a team.  You’ve got to believe in their growth
and their experience and the efficiency they perform with for the most

I know this team can win.  They’ve proven that.”

Namath is right.

And maybe after the game he’ll try to play tonsil hockey with Rex Ryan.

    Namath coached the Jets, too?

    Tonsil hockey? C’mon, man, was that one really necessary? NBC gave you full editorial control, but some self-censoring (or at least something funnier and more euphemistic) seems warranted. Fine to make fun of Namath, Ryan, and/or the Jets, but that one is just juvenile and weak as far as comedy goes.

    Ha, I don’t usually find Florio funny but the end of this one did make me laugh. Gross but funny.

    Former Jets quarterback, not coach. Idiot.

    Namath is a punch drunk philandering gas bag, and if its not bolted down he will try to hump it.

    Could have sworn Namath was playing in that game as opposed to coaching it.

    Lets hope its not 21-0 at the beginning of the 2nd Q

    hahaha, i love mistakes, but really it takes the cake to hear that Namath coached the Jets, anyway, i don’t want to hear an interview with him anymore now after the last one on ESPN live.

  15. ampats says: Jan 22, 2010 9:25 AM

    I think Namath should put down the bottle of vodka before he does interviews. Then he wouldn’t say stupid things.
