Before he was propositioning sideline reporters on live TV, Joe Namath was also a professional quarterback for the New York Jets. Despite throwing more interceptions (215) than touchdowns (170) over the course of his career, Namath was feeling confident enough in his ability that he guaranteed victory for his team in the run-up to Super Bowl III. Joe was a man of his word, as the Jets shocked the heavily favored Colts 16-7. Despite a very modest stat line (17-for-26, 206 yards, zero touchdowns), the Jets' fur coat-sporting QB took home game MVP honors.
