Former Jet Joe Namath Calls Tim Tebow Trade ‘Publicity Stunt’
Many people were skeptical when it came to the Time Tebow trade to the New York Jets, and one guy who was very vocal with his disapproval was for Jet quarterback Joe Namath.
Joe Namath has been a supporter of Mark Sanchez as the Jets quarterback for a while now. So what were his thoughts yesterday when the big trade from Denver went down and Tim Tebow became a New York Jet? It’s safe to say that ‘Broadway’ Joe is not down with ‘Tebowmania’.
I do not agree with this situation, I can’t agree with it. I just think it’s a publicity stunt. I really think it’s wrong. I can’t go for it.
Namath would go on to say that he is a Tebow fan, but he is a ‘bigger Jet fan’ and just thinks that this is a bad move. Many would agree with him, because the Jets have yet to turn Mark Sanchez into a great quarterback, so how can they expect to groom two quarterbacks? Namath also said that Sanchez should be angry about what transpired in the Tebow acquisition.
