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.
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.
