    Joe Namath was great.
    He wasn't just great. He was tremendously great.
    Watch him play and them tell me otherwise. You can quote all the stats you want but that guy was one of the best QB's who ever lived.

    My reasoning is that the HOF is for players who were "great". Not "very good" for a long time, therefore accumulating stats that appear better than they are.
    That's why guys like Namath and Gayle Sayers are in the Hall, and guys like Drew Bledsoe and Vinny Testeverde are not.

    who the hell would ever vote for bledsoe and testeverde?? Joe namath belongs in the same sentence as them.

    I'm sitting next to a jets fan currently at work "I ask, hey, bud....is Joe Namath really a HOF worthy QB?"

    and he says "That's a really good question. I think because he directly tied to the first AFL superbowl win....but by today's standard of being the best of the best, no probably not. But we're still proud of it regardless"

    Geeet real man. He cant even hold Unitis jock strap.
    He was QB of the first team to win the superbowl. THATS why hes in. He threw for 4000 just once only threw over 3000 3 times, His completion rating was never above 52%, only had ONE season with more TD than INTS, your biggest pet peev, lol youre so full of it.
    Going by your standards, hes meeeh...meeehhh doesnt get you into the hall.
    Hed make a great back up today......I guess, if he was lucky

    Hmm...can you be truly "great" with average to below average stats? And not trying to change the subject, but the Rangers are going to lose tonight.

    I hope the Rangers win so bad that Rudy cries a river.
