In Response To: If the Cardinals Win Is Warner In?

Namath is in the hall of fame not just because of the Super Bowl, but because of the aesthetics of his game. Have you watched images of a healthy Namath drop back and throw a ball 30-40 yards? John Madden, who coached the Raiders against the Jets for a few years, said "He had the best-looking drop, the best looking release, and the best-looking pass that I have ever seen." Bill Walsh says similar things about watching Namath on film as a model of form. Also, some of his numbers were eye-popping in his moment. Yes, he tossed a lot of picks, but that was fairly ordinary in that era. But his 4007 passing yards in the 1967 season set a record that lasted for over a decade.
