Joe Namath apologizes to Geno Smith after calling him out for being soft

Sunday was a bit of a disaster for two New York Jets quarterbacks, neither of whom go by the name of Ryan Fitzpatrick.

It all began with Geno Smith, who had his first start of 2016 derailed by a knee injury. Not long after Smith left the game, Jets legend Joe Namath chimed in to criticize Geno for standing on the sideline rather than getting back into the game.

Smith responded after the win by saying this, asking someone to get the message to Namath.

After first believing the injury would be minor, the Jets learned on Monday that Smith tore his ACL and is out for the year. Upon hearing the news, Namath sent his condolences to Smith via Twitter.

Namath was obviously in the wrong for criticizing Smith in the first place, but his comment seemed even worse once severity of Smith's injury was known. Maybe Joe should step away from Twitter for a bit.
