Skip is a professional troll, just learn to either ignore what he says or to laugh at others getting riled up by him.

Joe Namath's career stats:

Record: 62-63-4 a LOSING RECORD

Completion %: 50.1%

TD vs. INT: 173 to 220 (47 more INTS than TDS over 13 seasons)

1 superbowl

This guy NEVER belonged in the HoF. He is the most overrated athlete in history.

Skip Baseless, give me a break!

185 TDs, ALREADY > Namaths 173

129 INTS <Namath's 220

27,579 yards about the same as Namath had for his career.

Why is considered such a great QB? He was great for the sport and for NY but as a QB he seemed painfully average. </P>

Broadway Joe sells a lot of ink. In the end that's the only reason, despite whatever excuse anybody else wants to give you. Think about it what's mentioned about Joe when they talk about him?

The guaranteed win, his off the field personality, the women he nailed in the swinging 60s. It's all puff. The guy had a decent arm, but he wasn't Otto Graham.

where would Namath be without his off field entertainment career????</P>

I've already figured Bayless out: he makes a pick, then says positive things about the opponent (ex. "The Pats will win the SB, BUT, the Giants have the better set of receivers")

This ensures that no matter what the result is, he has something to fall back on; in this case, if he loses, he'll say "But I DID say that the Giants had a better group of receivers, and they proved it by not dropping balls". That's Bayless in a nutshell.

Besides that, his job is to be provocative and to get viewers to want to debate him, which means going against what people think. If all the hosts on First Take were like Mangini, the show wouldn't have any viewers, it would be boring. ESPN has the perfect guy in Bayless (in terms of getting viewers)

the reason why namath is in the HOF is bc he's pretty much responsible for the league we have today.

when he made his guarantee, it was a joke at the time bc the afl was considered division II. his prediction, and the jets winning, is why we have the afc and nfc we have today. he's not in bc of his stats or career, he's in for basically being the rosa parks of the afl, shoddy analogy but it kinda works.

and skip is a moron, but hes the moron u love to hate. i most always disagree with him but find him entertaining bc he will always voice a minority opinion and spin it that bc he said it, its right. namath isnt even in elis nieghborhood in terms of skill and on field play and skip knows that. thats why its entertaining to watch him

He's also very unemotional compared to other QB's because he lacks social skills like the great Brady.

Skip needs to team up with Kwis Woooso, er....I mean Chris Russo. That idiot would NOT shut up yesterday about Welker's dropped pass - stating over and over that if Welker caught that pass, we'd be talking about he Pats win instead.

Really, Kwis? How do you know that, should Welker had caught that pass, that on the very next play Brady could've been intercepted, or a fumble could've happened or you could've committed a bunch of dumb penalties that pushed you back even further, causing you to punt? There was NO guarantee of Welker's grab, should he have made it. ANYTHING could've happened AFTER it. The guy is such a stupid tool, but listening to him is like not being able to turn away from a train wreck. He picked the Pats to trounce over the Giants and is band-aiding it by all these 'what ifs'.

I can't believe Skip Bayless still has a job or that anyone still listens to him. Obvious sound-bite *****.

Namath is the most overrated non-deserving QB in the HoF:

50.1 completion %, 27663 yards (Eli has that now), 173 TDs (Eli has more right now), 220 Int (Eli has almost half the Ints).

Ridiculous comparison and Namath's ONLY claim to fame is being the first AFL QB to win a SB. Shouldn't even be in the HoF.

+1....I'm sick of people talking about that dropped pass as if it was in the endzone...they would've been on our 20 with 4 minutes left in the game, what if we had forced them to take a FG even, they would've been up by 5 and Bradshaw's TD still would've won the game....

Namath was popular because he had a huge mouth. He was "bigger" than Eli maybe from a star-power standpoint, but a greater QB? No way...he had several years where his comp% was less than 50...

As other posters have said, Skip is a contrarian. The oly reason why he's even popular in the first place is the fact that he falsely lined Troy Aikman was gay in his book...I take everything he says with a grain of salt...

I completely agree, there are a lot of different things that could have happened if he did catch that pass adn you cant say for sure that the Pats would have won if he completed that pass.

I think a lot of it has to do with the mystique of Brady and BB, and most people just thought that if they completed it there is no way they would mess it up.

Also, a lot of people are talking about Welker droping that pass, but Brady threw a terrible ball. Looking at the play again, Welker had to be an acrobat just to even make a play on the ball. I know there are some people talking about how it was a bad throw, but the athleticism that Welker showed on that play was amazing. 9-10 times, sure he makes that catch but you gotta make a better throw than that when you are trying to close out a game, especially the Super Bowl.

As for Skip, he is what he is. I use to get all upset and aggrivated at the stupid things he says. But as others pointed out, I came to realize that he is strictly there for entertainment purposes. Him saying Namath is beter than Eli kind of proves it. The smirk on his face when he says things like that indicates that he also doesnt really believe what he is about to say and knows its ridiculous.

</P>


Yes and as far as the HOF talk and what Kurt Warner said. He said he is not sure if Warner is a bit bitter being 5-4 and yanked for Eli who went 1-6 and said it was the worst QBing he had ever seen... or just stating facts. He said eli has not beaten one of the best twice in a row and another in reg season. but as far as HOF talk. its to early. Said eli has been most inconsistent as a whole career wise but has alot of years left to answer the HOF question. He said if he wins another SB and still has 7-7 problems like he has this season he may get overlooked cause the guys in the Hall have great overall careers including reg seasons. As far as Warner he won 1 of 3 SBs but said Eli was expected to do well because of the cloth he was cut from and warner did what he did after being plucked from bagging groceries. </P>


And who knows Eli is young and his best years may be ahead of him and he may win another 5 Titles for all we know.</P>

While Eli was not perfect. Most if not all Elite or so Called Elite QBs were consistent in the early part of their careers.

Marino had his record year in his second year (an anomaly), but was hitting a steady stride in Year 9. Peyton around 7, Eli 7, and the rest eh look it up

I watch first take every morning. Before every game after We beat ATL Skip was saying I need to see Eli do it here(against GB) before I call him Elite. Then b4 we played SF said I'll call him Elite if he wins this week. Take a guess what he said before the SB? He's been waiting for Eli to lose so he can say I told u so and it didn't happen. Unfortunately no one on the show has the balls(outside of Stephen A who hasn't been on this week) to call him out on what he said. He's a huge Cowboy fan and a Patriot Homer. His only argument is if Miles Austin catches the ball in the 1st Cowboy game we never even make the playoffs. Kind of weak if u ask me. If we don't blow a huge lead to Philly last year GB doesn't win the SB either. Things like that happen every year and I can't believe these guys get paid to sound like idiots

Namath did a lot for the game of football. The greatest game ever of 1958 put American football at the forefront, and Namath's guarantee sealed it. Namath is in the hall of fame more for his contribution to the sport more so than his on field performance. However, Eli is exponentially and infinitely better than Namath was.

02-08-2012, 04:41 PM
Namath is garbage. Eli is the best QB any NY team has ever had. The only argument would be YA Tittle was pretty great during his short time with the Giants and would have been better if he played in the SB era especially the era Eli is playing in.

Y.A Tiittle had 36 TDs to 14 INTs back in 1963. QBR of 100+.

Eli hasn't had this yet.

But namath numbers are garbage.
