Now for those who were around in the late 60's/early 70's, is this the SAME coat that got Broadway Joe into so much controversy?

The pics from back when I've seen show a full length coat. This one looked much shorter.

BTW, Namath must have felt foolish wearing such a ridiculous coat in 50 degree weather.

Betcha he took it off after the coin toss.

It is always an honor to stand on Joe’s square at Denny Chimes.

Broadway Joe did something a lot more important than wear a fur coat tonight, but for some reason I can't get it posted on FR. I'll try again...

Don’t forget the part when Joe flipped the special game coin before asking a team to call heads or tails.

“You can’t fix stupid,” to quote comedian Ron White.

The interception return for a TD summed up the game. Moreno just stood there while the Seattle linebacker went for the ball. The game looked fixed to me. I never saw a team play with less enthusiasm. The Broncos played like they didn't want to be there.

For more chuckles, just go back and look at the number of football “experts” who had the point spread near 3.

As Ron White says, “You can’t fix stupid.”

Bad Karma started When Joe screwed up the coin toss, and then Transferred said Karma to Manning who began the long spiral down with a first play Safety. After that Karma was in total command against Denver! Also a small black hole may have floated by!

Not so! Lots of action, lots of mistakes. Very few “I told you so’s,” and a whole lot of red-faced football “Experts.”

There can only be one loser in a football game, but in the game of highly-paid professional talking football expertise, there were 99 % losers.

It will be fun to listen to them squirm and wiggle as they “crawfish” away from the reality that their credibility now is slightly above B. Hussein’s.

What kind? Coyote? from the color, I can't tell.

Whatever it is, it appears that good job was done from the hunting, through the furrier and tailoring. Quality. Who would expect less from Joe? He knows fur coats.

Namath we know something of, but what is a Bruno Mars?

(missed the halftime performance on porpoise)

My wife asked me if I'd ever seen a safety like that.

I said no, not that I've ever remembered.

And I've been watching NFL football for around 40 years.

I have NO idea what happened on that first play.

Stupid center, stupid Manning?

WTF happened?

Manning was clearly surprised.

And he's one of the best QBs that has ever played.

Guess we can chalk it up to "nerves".

But wasn't the center ready for the snap? Weird.

Denver center, Manny Ramirez, claimed that Peyton suddenly stepped forward after making the final adjustments.

I agree with you on the hype but you know we love it.Manning came in looking like a looser and left that way.

Crowd Noise. Manning in a news conference after said they were unable to hear the snap count due to the noise. Thus the safety.
