He has choked many times in the playoffs and nobody ever says anything.

At the same time, he's carried his team throughout the season many times as well.

Wow..I never bothered to look up Namath's stats but I always thought he was some great QB

Career Stats
TD-INT 173-220
Yards 27,663
QB Rating 65.5



those stats look AWFUL..is it because of the era he played in or what?

You can contribute the comp% to era, but his best was 52%, just below 50 the rest of the time. He had exactly one season where he threw more TDs than picks and even then it was 19-17. 4 total winning seasons in over a decade. Basically he's in the HOF based off one win, albeit an important one. He's the original Ochocinco, a marginally decent player who got famous because he attracted a lot of media attention in the largest media market.
An even better comparison would be Jim McMahon, who had better overall numbers and won 1 SB with a great D and running game, much like Namath, and was more famous for his antics than anything. You don't see him in the HOF though.

Yes indeed, however his playoff stats leave a lot to be desired.
Tom Brady
Namath, Namath, Namath, and Namath.

To go along with most of the QBs in the 60s and 70s.

I completely agree with everyone on that list, especially Aikman.

Having the greatest (arguably) running back of all time on his team is why he won three Super Bowls, but nobody ever wants to give credit to offensive players that don't play QB.

Brad Johnson has better stats in almost every possible category. Better rating (82.5 to 81.6), better TD/INT ratio (166-122 to 165-141), and a better completion percentage (61.7 to 61.5).

Yeah, he was on a team that won 3 Super Bowls, but in only one was he a factor. Emmitt Smith won the second, and Neil O'Donnell lost the third.

Easily the most overrated quarterback ever.

Heck of a broadcaster though.

You must have forgotten or not even seen the games against Dallas in the early 90's. Many a time it was the passing game with aikman that was torching us not simply E.Smith.

Troy Aikman
