    What people don't realize is that Joe Namath was an incredibly gifted athlete, and an awesome running quarterback at Alabama until he had knee injuries. He played on injured knees all of his career and he played behind some pretty bad Jet lines in the early 60's.

    Duel knee surgeries killed his 70', 71', and 73' seasons.

    He was also the first real commercialized quarterback and Namath lead the team that forced the merger. Stats don't tell the whole story. He made people want to watch the AFL, and eventually the NFL after the merger. "The Guarantee" is easily the most famous Superbowl line ever. Say what you want about his completion percentage, but all they did back then was throw downfield.

    Joe Namath - 50.1
    Johnny Unitas - 54.6
    Norm Van Brocklin - 53.6
    Bobby Layne - 49
    Bob Waterfield - 50.3
    George Blanda - 48

    The most accurate passers of the time period finished with completion percentages under 58. Passers considered the better of the era

    Y.A. Tittle - 55.5
    Bart Starr - 57

    Give me a break with the whole "overrated" thing. He dominated when healthy regardless of the stats.

    Did the Saints deserve their own thread for this? No. We've been bad, but we're nowhere near the worst franchise in the NFL.


    He had a lot more career interceptions than TD's. Hes famous because of the gurantee. Guranteeing a victory doesnt make you good.

        Yes I did. Stats arent everything, but they are a lot of it. And his stats were just bad. Completion percentage is fine i guess, but look at his TD-interception ratio. Not HOF calibur and thats undeniable so stop being a homer. He won a championship. Woo hoo so did Trent Dilfer.

          So did Joe Montana. Don't use the Trent Dilfer buyout. The Jets had a good defense, but Namath lead them there, regardless of the ******** you want to come up with. It's not only the on the field things, it's the way he revolutionized the game, and the downfield passing attack. Many overlook the fact that he had such bad injuries, as well and played through them.

            How could he lead him there when he was tossing up INT's left and right? Their defense led them there, he did not revolutioniz the passing game in any way shape or form, that was YA Tittle's doing.

              Kevin Mawae is more overrated than Joe Namath to those who said Namath is overrated.

                He revolutionized the downfield passing attack, pay attention to what I type.

                Watch some 1968 games and you'll understand how he lead them there. He was clutch, he made it happen when it needed to happen, and was a game manager.

                  The only reason that Joe Namath made it into the HOF was because he guaranteed a victory in a game in which they were considered huge underdogs, and his team won. His career numbers weren't that great, he just threw tons of interceptions and had a very low completion percentage. He was a home town hero in a city as big as New York, so the hype alone got him in.

                    Whoever said Mawae was a future HOF is smoking some crack. Centers rarely make the HOF, and Mawae won't be one of them. Dermonti Dawson didn't make the HOF, Jay Hillenberg didn't make the HOF and he made 8 consecutive Pro Bowls. I don't know the number of Pro Bowls on Mawae to be honest but I can't imagine it's more than that. And for those of you who say the Pro Bowl is just a popularity contest (which it's really not considering the fans are only 1/3) it plays a huge role in who makes the HOF particularly on the offensive line where there are no stats to track.


                    Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                      Will you quit saying that? I know what you said, and YA Tittle still revolutionizled it. Brad Johnson is a game manager, can he be in the hall of fame too? Game managers shouldnt and dont generally make the HOF.

Say what you want about his completion percentage, but all they did back then was throw downfield.

                          Joe Namath - 50.1
                          Johnny Unitas - 54.6
                          Norm Van Brocklin - 53.6
                          Bobby Layne - 49
                          Bob Waterfield - 50.3
                          George Blanda - 48

                          The most accurate passers of the time period finished with completion percentages under 58. Passers considered the better of the era

                          Y.A. Tittle - 55.5
                          Bart Starr - 57

                          Give me a break with the whole "overrated" thing. He dominated when healthy regardless of the stats.

                          Did the Saints deserve their own thread for this? No. We've been bad, but we're nowhere near the worst franchise in the NFL.


                          He had a lot more career interceptions than TD's. Hes famous because of the gurantee. Guranteeing a victory doesnt make you good.
                          Did you read anything I just typed out?

                          Yes I did. Stats arent everything, but they are a lot of it. And his stats were just bad. Completion percentage is fine i guess, but look at his TD-interception ratio. Not HOF calibur and thats undeniable so stop being a homer. He won a championship. Woo hoo so did Trent Dilfer
                          You could use that Woo hoo for brad johnson too.

                          true dat.
