Jets Hall of Fame QB takes a shot at new Bills head coach Rex Ryan

rexIn and interview with Darryl Slater of, former Hall of Fame quarterback of the New York Jets took as shot at new Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan. Just to make the game a little more to interesting to watch. 

“I like the aggressiveness [of General Manager Mike Maccagnan and Bowles], and I believe that they’re bold and they know what the hell they’re doing,” Namath said. “I know with Todd Bowles, bringing in a different kind of leadership, in a sense, than the team’s had. It’s a different kind, and more so that I can relate to.

“So many times, we hear coaches say they’ve got their players’ back: ‘I’ve got your back. I’ve got your this.’ Excuse me. There was a time when Tom Landry didn’t have a friend in the locker room. And there was a time when Don Shula wasn’t liked at all. Vince Lombardi was not a sweetheart to his players, and all that kind of stuff. No buddy-buddy stuff.

“I can understand ‘I’ve got your back,’ to a degree. But discipline is critical. Poise is critical. How he operates on the sidelines is very important throughout the game. And most of all, those coaches I mentioned and those that are gone and those that are here, they’re only as good as their record. It’s a win game, or see you later.”
