Joe Namath is excited to hire Adam Gase and his mating with Sam Darnold.
"I like him. I like what I've seen of him, Namath said to the post." I like how he sounds, I like his personality. I think he sees a good opportunity here with the jets, and certainly with the young quarterback. He sees a good opportunity to get something to go here.
"I'm glad he comes. I think he can do it."
Namath said he believes Darnold can do it and notices him "a potential quarterback" in one day.
"When I met him and I just met him He a couple of times, I like his attention, I like to look in the eye, I like his enthusiasm, Namath said." But I also like what his players, his teammates and his coach has had to say about him this year, even the whole year.
"He is a young workhorse, he gives the effort, he is out trying, and he is improving. I've seen him do pretty much every roll you need to do, and he'll get better, he'll just come get better. "
Namath, 50 years after Super Bowl III, realizes that Darnold needs a better team around him first.
"They have a potential big security [Jamal Adams] back there and they have a potential quarterbackback," Namath said. "You have to get some other guys to increase."
