Players in the "wrong" uniforms

ESPN put up these 2 featuring the Jets...only one of them is really a legend...

...and that man is Boomer Esiason. Look it up, He has better career numbers. So does Kenny Anderson for that matter.

There's more to being a legend than just stats. Boomer never wore a fur coat on the sidelines or tried to kiss Suzy Kolber. Also that little thing called Super Bowl III.

Joe Namath is the only QB in the history of the NFL more overrated than Brat Favre (not to say that Brat isn't great, but he isn't in the top 10 QBs of all time, let alone the greatest ever). Super Bowl III was a great moment in time, but other than being lucky that the Colts offense had their worst day when the Jets defense had their best day, Joe Willie was never great. Only greats should achieve legendary status, not guys who happened to be in the right place at the right time and be on a lot of commercials.

Any given Sunday, my friend.

Joe Willie Namath took the opportunities he was given and made the most of them. Nobody can diminish that.

Many people have said as much about three or four of the Patriots' regular-season victories last year, and they have been right. But if they had sealed the deal in Arizona, that wouldn't have mattered in the slightest.
