03:08 PM ET 05.22 | It is never a dull moment with former Jets quarterback great Joe Namath. On Tuesday, at United Way's 20th Gridiron Gala at the Waldorf Astoria hotel, Namath, once again, had an opinion regarding a Jets move: "No, I don't think they needed a quarterback. They needed the other positions filled. Possibly offensive line. They got some defensive line. The safeties are still questionable. The outside linebackers are still questionable," referring to the Jets' second-round draft pick Geno Smith. Namath, who is not shy in airing his opinions on the Jets and on their quarterback situation, seems to disagree with the Jets' draft of the West Virginia quarterback, adding that he's going to "pull" for embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez, who has struggled the past two seasons, but Namath thinks it's because of the "distractions" surrounding the quarterback.
