10:20 AM ET 09.18 | In the debut of The Broadway Blitz on Sirius NFL Radio with Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath and Adam Schein, Schein asked Namath whether it was a mistake for the Jets to be the subject of this year's Hard Knocks. "I think so," Namath said. "I think it is for any team that's going to work to do their best to get to be their best. It's what we call 'distractions.' You're going to spend more time away from thinking about your position, your job, and the details of it when you've got other things going on around you that you're partaking in. It has to be a distraction and you can't have spent as much time on your mental preparation and homework as you would have without the distractions. So, yeah, I don't think it was a positive." Namath attributed the team's offensive struggles on Monday night to execution and not play-calling, and he thinks that quarterback Mark Sanchez was "harried" due to age and inexperience.

The Jets had PSLs and tickets to sell. They wanted the publicity.

Just relax and let it out, Otis. This is begging for a comment from one of our more learned mentors.

That's true, but Sanchez is not Namath. He's trying hard to just be Trent Dilfer.

Is this the sober Joe or the slobbering Joe that is speaking?
