Cincinnati Bengals vs NY Jets

Sanchez on Joe Namath Craig Thomas

Joe Namath has been critical of Mark Sanchez at times this season, and here is what the current Jets quarterback thinks of the periodic public critiques from the legend –

“He still cares a lot about the  team,” Sanchez told ‘The Petros and Money Show.’  “I know that. Some of that stuff may be taken out of context and the other stuff he just wants us to do well, so he is critical of anybody. If anybody is critical of our team it’s probably going to be me or Rex [Ryan]. That’s just kind of the roles we bought into. Joe Namath is the ultimate Jet and he’s probably the biggest icon this franchise has and winning that Super Bowl and guaranteeing it the way he did. We have a lot of respect for him and I know he wants the best out of our team. It’s no big deal.”
