Joe Namath is more than just a guy who constantly complains about the New York Jets and Mark Sanchez. He was also an exceptional quarterback. Here’s a look at his guarantee against the Colts prior to Super Bowl III. And here I talk to him and Phil Simms about a New York Super Bowl. Adam Rank has never won an award. For anything. We don’t mean to be harsh, but it’s true. You can follow him on Twitter @adamrank. Oh, and if you liked this (right!), check him out on the latest “Dave Dameshek Football Program“.

Former Jets QB Joe Namath created quite a stir when he endorsed pantyhose in the 1970s, but he has nothing on DeMarcus Ware, Clay Matthews and Wes Welker.
Kurt Warner created a firestorm with comments about Eli Manning‘s worthiness for the Hall of Fame. We took the debate to the next level Wednesday on “NFL Total Access”, pitting Warner vs. Michael Lombardi in an instant debate.

Since Joe Namath eclipsed the mark in 1967 – a running era when a 4,000-yard campaign was more myth than reality – there have been 88 instances in which quarterbacks threw for that many yards in a season. Peyton Manning has done it 11 times himself, far and away the most in NFL history.

RB Mark Ingram is participating in his pro day at Alabama on Wednesday, looking to follow in the footsteps in another former Crimson Tide back who made it big in the NFL — Shaun Alexander. But Alabama is more known for its quarterbacks that it has churned out.
