Joe Namath's Deal With The Devil
Do you think Joe Namath made a deal with The Devil?
Selled His Soul For A Championship
Joe Namath was the Quarterback of the New York Jets back in the 60’s and led his team to Super Bowl III. On that day, he said that he guaranteed that the Jets would win that football game. They were going against the Baltimore Colts.
At the time, The Colts were the powerhouse of the League. They had a record of thirteen wins and one loss. They also scored 402 points and allowed 144. The Jets were 11-3 and scored more points, but also allowed more points. Before this game, the Colts had lost their star quarterback Johnny Unitas for basically the entire season. It didn’t stop Baltimore’s offense that season. In Super Bowl III though, they just couldn’t get anything going. The Jets won the game 16-7 and is one of the greatest upsets of all time. After this game, the Jets haven’t won a Super Bowl since. After hearing about this historic game multiple times, I came across a very interesting and recent rumor that might explain everything.
I was watching the NFL networks Top 10 (this one was called the top 10 snakebitten teams) and came across something intriguing. Apparently, famous NFL quarterback Joe Namath admits to selling his soul to the Devil. According to The Daily Drivel, the Hall of Famer has kept this secret with himself for 43 years. That is until now. “I sold my soul for a championship” Namath claims. The deal that he made says that the New York Jets would not win another Super Bowl as long as he was alive. He even said “Devil, if you give me this championship, you don’t have to give the jets anything else for the rest of my life.” He’s now nearing age 70 and says that he’s sorry for putting the team and the fans through so much pain and for the fact that he’s still alive. He was sure he would be gone by the time he got to his 40’s.
Being a football fan most of my life, I’ve reflected back on the history of the Jets and the coaches and players they’ve had. Great talent and great coaches. However, I guess the curse has kept the Jets at bay for another Championship. Bill Parcells had served as the Head Coach for a time. Parcells is one of the NFL’s greatest coach’s of all time. However, he couldn’t get them back to the Super Bowl. Bill Belichick, was an assistant coach with them under Parcells, then became the head coach for 32 minutes. After the game, he stepped down as their head coach and went to New England where he now has won three super bowls coaching the Patriots. Pete Carrol coached them and couldn’t get them to a championship. He went to USC, and gave them years of success. Brett Favre, three time NFL MVP and Super Bowl Champion went there for a year. It appeared as if they were going to be Super Bowl contenders after beating the 10-0 Tennessee Titans. Then, they suddenly started falling apart. They had an 8-3 record at the time, and finished 9-7 missing the playoffs. Brett Favre had gotten a torn bicep at that time and didn’t reveal it until the following season.
I guess Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez aren’t entirely to blame for New York’s last couple of seasons. After all, Ryan did help The Ravens win a Super Bowl back in 2000 as their Defensive Coordinator and Sanchez has helped USC win the Rose Bowl against Penn State back in 2009. Either they need to look else where, or hope that Joe Namath’s time is coming soon. I’m surprised Jet fans haven’t arrived at Namath’s house with torches and pitchforks yet.
