From free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick to fourth year Geno Smith, we remember the times the New York Jets didn’t have to deal with this madness.

Let me guess. You simply cannot wait to discuss Ryan Fitzpatrick some more.

Right?

Sarcasm aside, it’s easy to spot a New York Jets fan who’s had enough of this Ryan Fitzpatrick-Geno Smith discussion. At the first sign of the words QB and/or Jets, they become extremely irritable and agitated. They start cursing out that money grubbing Fitz or that average succeeding Geno.


But, ah…the Jets haven’t always had to deal with this ridiculous controversy at the position.

Once upon a time, believe it or not, they were blessed with one of the best QBs in NFL history in Joe Namath. They were also blessed to possess a few other goodies sprinkled in along the way.

If you don’t believe me, just take a look at the following video evidence:
