New York Jets wide receiver gets all over Joe Namath for making the comments that Bryce Petty should start in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Hide the women and children, Joe Namath is at it again. Or, at least, take the keyboard away from the best player to ever lace them up for the green and white.
When the New York Jets fell down by the score of 20-7 to the Cleveland Browns at halftime in Week 8, Joe Willy took to Twitter to add his two cents:
Who thinks we should see Bryce Petty start the 2nd half? I know I do. It hurts to say this, but we're not goin anywhere with Fitzpatrick.

He called for backup Bryce Petty to take Fitz’s spot in the lineup.
What unfolded was Fitzpatrick and the boys scoring 21 unanswered points and taking the win in Cleveland, 31-28.
Fitz’s guy, Brandon Marshall, had a few words for the Jets royalty who doubted FitzMagic, via Rich Cimini of ESPN New York:
“I don’t want to fight with Joe — they’ll throw me out of the city; Joe’s it — but you can’t say that,” Marshall said. “Come on, Broadway. I like Joe. I have his number. We talk … but, come on, Joe.”
“He got on Geno [Smith], too, last week, but Geno had an ACL. Joe, I’m not fighting against you. So, for the New York fans, I’m not going against Joe, but Joe, come on, you can’t say that.”
B-Marsh then spoke the words we, at home, are thinking.
“I would ask Joe, can you reserve your comment until after the game?” Marshall asked, talking directly to a TV camera. “Two weeks in row you’ve been wrong, Joe. But, again, New York, I’m not going against Broadway Joe.”
