Namath on Rodgers
“I’ve never seen anyone play better football,” Namath said. “I know [Tom Brady’s] got some championships under his belt, and that’s special. But I’ve never seen anybody move around as well or better than Aaron Rodgers does. Throw under run, do this, and, you know, never looks like he’s in doubt.”
Namath’s comments are significant, given his own legendary status in the football world. Known for leading the New York Jets to their first and only Super Bowl victory in 1969, Namath is widely regarded as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. His endorsement of Rodgers is a testament to the talent and ability of the Jets’ quarterback.

Namath also commented on the Jets’ prospects for the upcoming season with Rodgers at the helm. “With Aaron, man, we kind of feel like we know we can do it,” he said. “The team should feel that way. I mean, they’re improving. The draft choices they brought in Joe Douglas in just a couple of short years have put together some good players. But competition is keen, man, and Lady Luck plays a role.”
Namath’s comments will undoubtedly be welcomed by Jets fans who are hopeful that Rodgers can lead their team to a Super Bowl victory. With Namath’s seal of approval, the pressure will be on Rodgers to live up to expectations and deliver for his new team.
