    Just got my 1968 Joe Namath "Authentic" Mitchell & Ness Jets Home jersey. A fine piece of clothing. Its funny, you know you’re getting old when a youngin’ who had only just started getting into football asks…."Who’s Joe Namath, and why are you rockin’ his jersey? So, after (in my head) saying "you gotta be kidding me", I had to remind myself that this is a youngin’. I then used it as a quick "One To Grow On". I told him, if you want to know about Joe Namath go to this video and pay attention. At 1:36 – 1:54. I told him, right there. The pretty dropback (John Madden said that Namath had the most beautiful dropback, setup, and delivery ever, and I totally agree) and lightning quick throw. We got to see that in that 18 second clip. Those were 2 of the most beautiful throws ever caught on film, and Namath could do it all day. I wonder had Namath had regular knees, and a decent "everything else", where could he had been? Joe was definitely a great QB, even though the stats are pedestrian at best. Joe made the HOF because of his impact on the game on and off the field.

    Namath was one of the first QBs that Def.Cords would seriously consider not blitzing him, even with his lack of mobility because the ball came out so fast. DBs were shakin’ in their boots when Joe got hot because he could put it where they couldn’t get it. Now Joe also had what I call "Big Boyitis"! That a sickness a lot of QBs with big arms get from time to time, thinking that they can get that football through a damn keyhole. Joe did it alot, but for every interception, Joe would give you a WOW.

    Football was very different back then, so I don’t look at stats as much as skills, and intangibles. Those differ from person to person, but we for the most part know the Greats when we see them. and Namath was that.

    At this time I was an AFL fan. My favorite team was the Oakland Raiders. This was before we had cable TV where I live. We only had two television channels, one of which carried AFL games.

    Emerson Boozer was a bruiser and Matt Snell raised Hell. Gotta love that 60s NFL-AFL Films music

    Jets in ’68. The Chiefs in ’69. And nothing for either organization since. Bring back Broadway Joe and Willie Lanier!!

  13. Frances Witham on March 11, 2020 at 11:41 pm

    Lose the awful music

  14. bigpapasmurf Z on March 11, 2020 at 11:42 pm

    The Jets had the #1 defense in the league. But, as D-Line coach Buddy Ryan said, "No one remembered that we had the best defense, because our quarterback wore white shoes."
    LOL
    Joe Willie and his Jets, TOP OF THE WORLD in 68!

    👍👏😁Very enjoyable, thank you 🍻👏👏🖒

    Joe with healthy knees & a defense like Miami or Pittsburgh would’ve easily won two-three more SBs. Unfortunately he played in a tough NFL. Today’s Commissioner wouldn’t allow a hit on Joe by Detroit. The game then was rough. A QB was no different in referees eyes. Defense tougher. No silly 5 yd. bump. In 1972 Joe co led NFL in TDs w/19. Today that’s after 7-8 games. Only one in last 25 years who could equal Joe was another–Joe Montana.

  17. Mike Mealey on March 11, 2020 at 11:46 pm

    Glad for jets fans! Namath took beating back then when rules were different, real men too!

  18. Thomas Schakow on March 11, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    Joe Namath the 5th beatle

  19. George Wodicka on March 11, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    Just think of Joe Namath, playing a full 15-18 year career on two FULLY healthy knees. His knee problems began at Alabama, and he was spectacular there. My God, what could have been.

  20. Tommy Thomason on March 11, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    I was 10 in 1968, but only mainly watched NFL games. To this day, I think that ’68 Colts team was maybe the best NFL team ever, and better than the Jets. But the Jets were good enough to beat them, and when the Colts frittered away every early opportunity they had to bury the Jets, New York did what great teams do. They cashed in: they knocked them off. Joe was maybe the smartest quarterback around and with good receivers and that quick release, the flat Colts couldn’t stop them. I certainly think AFL teams, like the Chiefs and Raiders, could knock off the good NFL teams back then.

  21. Ronbo710 on March 11, 2020 at 11:48 pm

    I miss the days when people could make a touchdown without acting like a fucking prima donna.

    .why did you make the screen smaller? Dumb

  25. David Meyer on March 11, 2020 at 11:54 pm

    I am sick of hearing how this team was lucky or not that good..this was THE best defense in football…THAT is why we beat the Colts..Namath knew that and so did Ewbanks..they earned the SB victory…

    “Broadway Joe” returned to where he used to play for Coach Bryant and Alabama at historic Legion Field in Birmingham. It remains the only NFL game to ever be played at “The Old Gray Lady on Graymont”.

  27. roger b on March 11, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    Namath had a arm.

  28. Armory Brunot,Jr. on March 11, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    This is the story of the first and only World Championship season of the 1968 New York Jets. But what a season it was. Weeb Ewbank became the only coach to win titles in the AFL and the NFL. Joe Namath toned down his game at quarterback and handed the ball off to star running
    backs Emerson Boozer, Matt Snell and Bill Mathis. And there was also
    a little girl named Heidi, who interrupted a key game between the
    Jets and the defending league champion Oakland Raiders on television
    that season. Lastly, the Jets beat Baltimore of the NFL in Super Bowl III,
    16-7.

    19:25 That’s what, a 65 yard throw to Maynard into the wind?

    Joe would back up and then step up and chunk it.

  32. Jeremy Thompson on March 12, 2020 at 12:01 am

    I wish they would’ve come out with the idea for an AFL-NFL World Championship Game sooner. I believe the 1963 AFL Champion Chargers could’ve beaten the 63 NFL Champion Bears. I also believe the 64 AFL Champion Bills could’ve beaten the 64 NFL Champion Browns. That Bills defense still holds the pro football record for going 17 straight games without giving up a rushing TD. I believe they were definitely good enough to keep Jim Brown in check and the Bills secondary was outstanding too with CB’s Butch Byrd and Booker Edgerson and Safety George Saimes. Bills RB Cookie Gilchrist is maybe the most underrated player in pro football history. He was nicknamed " The Jim Brown of the AFL"

    Usmcfutbol Willie Lanier was ahead of his time. 6 foot 1 245lb run stuffer. All action no talk or showboat. Loved that era of football.

  34. Mark Brian on March 12, 2020 at 12:04 am

    As a Jet fan, I always watch this to make me feel better.

    I told my older brother ad his pals the Jets would beat their Colts…and they laughed at me…I was 11 they were 16….they wore black Chuck Taylors I of couse wore white Chucks….kinda like Namath..white shoes and white socks….and myJets beat their Colts…

  37. elwin38 on March 12, 2020 at 12:06 am

    The Joe Namath from 1967-69(plus a Super Bowl win) is what got him into the Hall of Fame.

  38. NancyDLSR on March 12, 2020 at 12:07 am

    Goal post in the inzone 1968 joe in the pocket no fear

    No Gangster Rapper was HEARD or harmed in the making of this video 😛

  40. Pete Harmon on March 12, 2020 at 12:10 am

    This is in my opinion. The most important Super Bowl. It gave the AFL a equal standing with NFL . I wouldn’t say it forced the merger but, it helped it. It also gave us a few years later the NFL only undefeated team.
