Forty years later, Joe Namath’s still Super

TAMPA – Forty years later the biggest star of the big game is still Joe Namath of the Jets.

It’s not because he was the best quarterback to ever play in the Super Bowl because he wasn’t. If you are looking at everything, the best quarterback in the history of the game is Joe Montana, who played four Super Bowls and won them all and threw 11 touchdown passes in those games and still hasn’t thrown an interception. If you want to talk about one game, then it is probably Phil Simms, who was 22-for-25 one time in Pasadena.
