NEW YORK (AP)

Joe Namath is a Mark Sanchez fan.

Namath has made it clear he favors Sanchez to be the starting quarterback over Tim Tebow for Namath's old team, the New York Jets.

Appearing at a United Way charity function Tuesday night, Namath says ''there's no doubt at all'' about who is the better quarterback. He adds that ''Mark is going to get better.''

The Jets traded with Denver to bring in Tebow to back up — some think challenge — Sanchez for the first-string job. Namath, who led the franchise to its only NFL title in the 1969 Super Bowl, adds he is a fan of both quarterbacks and that Tebow can help the Jets.

He sees a similarity between himself and Sanchez, recalling how this will be Sanchez's fourth season and Namath won the Super Bowl in his fourth pro season.
