Joe Namath is not happy with his beloved New York Jets. He said he feels the coaching staff is coddling the former BYU signal caller.
“I wouldn’t keep him. I’ve seen enough of Zach Wilson,” Namath said, clearly animated by his beloved team’s losing ways. “He has quick feet; he can throw a little bit. But I don’t believe what’s going on up there.”
I have to agree with his take on the locker room. There is no way guys like Garrett Wilson and Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner are happy with the play of Zach Wilson.
“How can a coach say the locker room’s together?” Namath asked. “How many teams have we been on? Are you telling me there aren’t some cats on the defensive side saying, ‘Whoa, man, what’s wrong with you?’ Yeah, there’s no harmony in the locker room. And if there is, they need to get rid of people.
“You got to get people in there who are competitors and want to fight to win. These guys don’t have to be in love with each other. And if they’re saying they’re in love with each other, they’re B.S.’ing you.”
Do you think Namath is right?
The Jets fans likely agree with their legendary quarterback, but the coaching staff seems to believe he is still the player that gives them the best chance to win. Saleh maybe willing to die on that hill, and if he is willing to die on that hill he could end up being jobless.
