PHOTOS: Joe Namath’s Furry Super Bowl Coats, Then and Now
Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith might have been named the Super Bowl's most valuable player, but New York football legend Joe Namath undoubtedly took home Sunday night's other MVP award: Most Voluptuous Pimp-coat. WATCH: Joe Namath And Other Celebs Who Starred In Super Bowl Commercials Looking like a large bear that crawled onto the field, the 70-year-old Hall of Famer stepped out in a huge fluffy coat to make the coin-toss alongside former Giants quarterback Phil Simms. The coat quickly became the talk of Twitter, earning both praise and criticism from social media users throughout the night. But this isn't the first time Broadway Joe's fashion choices have made headlines. Back in 1971 on the sidelines of a Jets game, Namath went for a similar look in a similar fur coat, which he paired with the flashiest bellbottoms he could presumably find (photo below).

In addition to his bold coat choice, the former football legend got a bit too friendly with Fox News anchor Kimberly Guilfoyle on Friday's edition of "The Five," giving her a few smooches on the cheek during a live interview. Check out a few more photos of Namath at Sunday's Super Bowl below, then let us know what you think of his coat in our poll.
