Joe Namath is thrilled with the attitude of Adam Gase and his partnership with Sam Darnold.
"I like him. I like what I saw of him, "Namath told the Post. "I like the way he sounds, I like his personality. I think he sees a big opportunity here with the jets and certainly with the young quarterback. He sees a great opportunity to create something here.
"I am glad that he is coming. I think he can do it. "
Namath said he believes Darnold could do it and someday calls him" all-pro quarterback. "
He's a few times, I like his behavior, I like the look in the eye, I like his enthusiasm, "said Namath," but I also like what his players, teammates and coaches said about him throughout the year during this year.
"He's a young workhorse, he gives hey, he's trying and improving himself, I've seen him basically doing every single throw you have to make, he gets better, he just gets better. "
Namath, 50 years after Super Bowl III , recognizes that Darnold needs a better team first.
"They have a potentially great safety there [Jamal Adams] and they have an all-pro quarterback," Namath said. "You've got to get some other people involved . "
