JOE NAMATH WEIGHS IN ON BIG BEN



Who can we look to as the voice of reason during a time of crisis in Steeler Land? Why, Joe Willie Namath of course, who shared his thoughts on Ben Roethlisberger via Twitter today:
"Roethlisberger not attending a voluntary workout because he's a "distraction"? To who? His team!? C'mon, when is a star NOT a distraction?"
If anyone knows about being a distraction to his team, it's Joe Namath. He wore a fur coat on the sidelines. He famously predicted victory over the Colts in Super Bowl III. He opened a bar called "Bachelors III" that was frequented by gamblers, and defiantly retired from the game rather than divest himself of his interest in the bar. He would've been 99% of the content on TMZ Sports if it existed in 1970. So drunken passes at Suzy Kolber aside, his viewpoint should hold some credibility on this subject.

Joe Namath said that? Really? So Pacman Jones wasn't available, and since Chris Henry was dead, that was the next best person to interview, right?

Hey, Chris Henry beat the odds. I always knew he was on his way to an early grave, but how he got there was not what I expected.


Joe Namath is amazing.
