February 5, 2012 by staff
Joe Namath Spokesman For Jets, Joseph William “Joe” Namath ( born May 31, 1943), nicknamed “Broadway Joe” or “Joe Willie”, is a former American football quarterback. He played college football for the University of Alabama under coach Paul “Bear” Bryant and his assistant, Howard Schnellenberger, from 1962-1964, and professional football in the American Football League (AFL) and National Football League (NFL) during the 1960s and 1970s. Namath was an American Football League icon and played for that league’s New York Jets for most of his professional career but finished his career with the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1985.
Namath retired after playing in 140 games: 62 wins, 63 losses and 4 ties. In his career he threw 173 touchdowns, 220 interceptions, and completed 1,886 passes for 27,663 yards. During his thirteen years in the AFL and NFL he played for three division champions (the 1968 and 1969 AFL East Champion Jets and the 1977 NFC West Champion Rams), earned one league championship (1968 AFL Championship), and one Super Bowl victory (Super Bowl III).
In 1999, he was ranked number 96 on The Sporting News’ list of the The Sporting News – 100 Greatest Football Players. He was the only player on the list to have spent a majority of his career with the Jets.
He is perhaps best known for boldly guaranteeing a Jets’ victory over Don Shula’s NFL Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III (1969) and then making good on his prediction.
Namath currently lives in the village of Tequesta, Florida. He continues to serve as an unofficial spokesman and goodwill ambassador for the Jets.
In summer/fall of 2011, Namath was representing Topps and promoting a “Super Bowl Legends” contest, appearing on its behalf on The David Letterman Show.
