Joe Namath HOF?

Hey Jets Fans, I'm a Dolphin fan and I have a question.

I don't want to pick any fights or anything, but I have been looking up Joe Namath's stats, and they are not spectacular.

Make the Jump.

He has thrown more picks than TDs, his best passer rated season was 73.8, which is pretty average, his average passer rating for his entire career is 65.5, which is rather mediocre, and has only had 3 3,000+ yd seasons.

Now, there may be another reason why he is in the hall of fame that I don't know, like a legendary signature play or plays of his, however many super bowl rings he has, or something like that, and my question is: outside of his stats, is there a reason why he was added to the NFL's all time elite player's list (hall of fame)? Also, how many super bowl rings did he have?

Thanks, and again, I don't mean this to insult anyone, I'm not picking a fight.

Good luck vs. the Colts this weekend.

In case you want to see all of his stats, here is the link as to where I found this info:
