Weak. Why do old Jets players talk crap about new players? Shouldn't you be supporting this new Jets team, that's one of the best we've had in a very long time? Even Namath talks crap these days. Your days are over, stop acting like you're the best ever and no one will ever top you. It's like they want the Jets to never win a SB again, so they can be the only ones that did it. Revis shuts down guys like Reggie Wayne from Peyton Manning, and all other top WRs and QB combos in the league. Manning and Wayne are 2 of the best players to ever play the game right there. Namath is a Jets legend, but he can't hold a candle to the likes of Peyton Manning or any top QB today. Sorry guys, Revis would still shut you down.
These guys have supported the Jets through thick and thin. Maynard wasn't tooting his own horn so much (other than his being fast - a fact, not an opinion) but Namath's. I think he was just standing up for his teammate and leader. False about Namath not being able to hold a candle to Manning. Manning has had a better, more consitent career, but Namath and Maynard are two guys who could compete in this era and the rule changes would certainly benefit them as much as anybody. These guys have supported the Jets and come to games even when the ownership and FO tried to push them away. I know Randy Beverly's son and he says his Dad still goes to every home game and this is after they traded him for a bag of peanuts one season after the super bowl despite his having 2 picks one from each HOF superstar QB and all the other bullsh*t they've put up with since.
Lol, i remember going to a knicks game when i was pretty young, and they had an old timers game at halftime. DeBuscherre went up and down the court three times and then headed back to the bench to get hooked up to the oxygen. I think he came close to dying right there on the court. Woulda been cool to see that, lol.
DeBuscherre was a hard a$$. His problem was the Dewars. I'm sure he had a few before that game. He always had a few, unless he had more than a few.
