Broadway Joe













This cool old action photo was taken in 1966 just as the Jets were beginning their ascent, two years before they beat the Colts in Super Bowl III and obviously before Joe Willie's knees were shot. Some may only know him as a slightly overrated, pantyhose wearing, sideline reporter-chick chasing drunken has been, but there was a time when he could play a little football. Check out the elevation.

i agree with the archduke, it looks like a photo of staubach that has been photoshopped to look like joe namath. if it wasn't for matt snell in the photo (#41) the rb for the ny jets i would never believe that was flash in the pan joe.

BTW, not that she had any doubt, but Queen Selfish decided to check the authenticity of said photo. She enlarged it 800 percent and determined, correctly, that it has not been altered. All pixels are in their appropriate place. So there. If I get any more guff from you nay-sayers I'm going to take my blog and go home.
