Namath Impressed So Far by the Play of Sanchez

The NY Post talked to Joe Namath, and he says that so far he’s impressed with what he sees from rookie QB Mark Sanchez:

Count Joe Namath among those impressed with Mark Sanchez. The Hall of Famer, who was in town for “Joe Buck Live” last night, said he has liked what he’s seen from Sanchez since a preseason game against the Giants in the Meadowlands. “He impressed me for the first time when I saw him against the Giants in the first series,” Namath said. “He showed some things there that were outstanding, and he has these last two games.” The inevitable comparison for any Jets quarterback is to Namath, the only one to lead the Jets to the Super Bowl. But though Namath shied away from making that comparison, he made no secret that he was hoping it would happen. “I’m pulling for him, I promise you,” Namath said. “I’m pulling for the Jets. Everything that I’ve heard from people close to the scene — players, coaches — they’re impressed with him.”
