As I actually reject the legitimacy of a pre-merger team playing an entire postseason in 2 games after rising up in an inferior 10 team league, I consider Namath's "one and done" performance no better than winning a contemporary conference championship. Sure it was exciting and uplifting in its day, but from the retrospective of time, scoring 16pts under those circumstances in the 2nd playoff game was no big deal. This is especially true when you view a career distinguished by about a .500 record, a mediocre QBR and completion record and something like 20 more Ints than TDs.
