Joe Namath Says Rex Ryan Has The Jets Thinking They Are Better Than They Are

Am I crazy, but isn’t that what a coach is suppose to do?

Trust me, talent only takes you so far, you have to believe you are good before you can perform it out on the field.  Joe Namath though thinks that Rex Ryan should stop gassing up the Jets.

“It’s rather alarming,” Namath said on the Michael Kay Show. “It starts at the top. Coach Rex Ryan, he’s been doing a great job, getting us to two conference championship games, but there’s one thing about the athlete: You keep telling him how good he is, he’s going to start believing it to the point that he may not be preparing quite the way he should. He may be losing some respect for the other team.”

“I think these guys might be believing that they’re better than they are,” Namath said. “Rex has been the only coach that we know, in maybe the history of the game that I’m familiar with, that keeps continually telling his guys how good they are. And they have been pretty good — pretty good — but they haven’t won a championship yet. I think they’ve got to remember that there’s room for improvement.”

I get what Namath is saying, but the numbers don’t lie Ryan has gotten the Jets to two Conference Championship games, so I think it is too early to panic.

The one player who did think he was better than he was Braylon Edwards and he is gone.

It is only Week 3, no need to go over the top with the hyperbole.
