I'm like you i saw all these guys play too. I agree with a lot of what you say however if Namath had had 2 good knees there's no telling what he could have done. What set Namath apart was his confidence in himself in what he could do on the field. He's the only man i ever saw that could throw a ball 70 yards standing flat footed, that is until i saw Dan Marino.psychojoe said:Namath, Stabler, Sloan, Barker were all great field generals who could really energize their team when the game was on the line. All did very well as a starter in the w-l department.
For the combination of talent and leadership, though, I'd give Namath the edge, then Stabler, Barker, Sloan. Namath easily had the best arm, his biggest flaw was that he sometimes felt there was no coverage his arm could not beat.
I am proud to have seen all these guys play, and they all represented us magnificently.
Hey, he does have the records to make the claim .Optimus said:the_rolltide said:
