Joe Namath changes feelings about Tim Tebow after Press Conference

After watching the Tim Tebow press conference, Joe Namath has changed his tune on Tebow coming to the Jets.

RealJoeNamath After watching Tebow’s press conference my feelings haven’t changed about him…I like him, I believe him and he’ll be an asset to the team. 3/26/12 1:04 PM
RealJoeNamath My opinion hasn’t changed regarding the trade though. I still feel the Jets best chance to win is with Sanchez on the field. 3/26/12 1:11 PM

New York Jets Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath spoke with FOX Business Network (FBN) about the Jets signing former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and how this will impact the upcoming season. When asked if he has changed his mind since saying the team didn’t “know what they were doing” by signing Tebow, Namath said,  “I have changed my mind slightly. You see the overview that the personnel in the Jets’ administration have, they give more thought to the marketing and the other edges of the business than I do.”

Excerpts from the report are below.

On whether he has changed his mind since saying the Jets didn’t know what they were doing by signing Tebow:
“I have changed my mind slightly. You see the overview that the personnel in the Jets administration have, they give more thought to the marketing and the other edges of the business than I do. I think more of the football field, the locker room, and what they’re trying to achieve on the field. I just don’t think the team is in a position right now with their players to have  a successful season next year. I think they need fixes in other areas. Whenever I see the move with Tim Tebow, that’s just telling me they really don’t have all that confidence in Mark Sanchez that they’ve been telling Mark and telling the fans certainly with the new contract and there’s an old saying amongst players in football talking about your general manger and coaches, they speak with a forked tongue.”

RealJoeNamath I agree! @Amags7 If anything Tebow brings class and leadership to the locker room. Lets go Jets! 3/26/12 1:13 PM
