NFL legend Joe Namath will host a weekly talk show on SIRIUS NFL Radio throughout the 2010 NFL season beginning Friday, September 17 (2:00-3:00 pm ET) and air every Friday on SIRIUS NFL Radio, Sirius and XM Channel 124.

Namath and co-host Adam Schein will discuss the latest news from around the NFL, look ahead to the upcoming weekend's matchups, and take calls from NFL fans around the country.

The show will replay each week on SIRIUS NFL Radio Friday at 11:00 pm ET, Saturday at 7:00 am ET and Sunday at 6:00 am ET.

Namath is best remembered for his role in the New York Jets' stunning 16-7 upset of the heavily favored Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III, and the famous pre-game guarantee of victory which he then backed up with an MVP performance.

Throughout his 13-year career, from 1965 through 1977, he was one of the game's most exciting, proficient and publicized quarterbacks. He completed 1,886 passes for 27,663 yards and 173 touchdowns in 12 seasons with the Jets and a final season with the Los Angeles Rams. In 1967, he became the first quarterback to pass for more than 4,000 yards in one season and, remarkably, he accomplished this while playing a 14-game schedule.

Drafted out of the University of Alabama, who he led to a National Championship in 1964 under legendary coach Bear Bryant, Namath was named the AFL Rookie of the Year in 1965. He earned all-league accolades four times in his career (1967, 1968, 1969, and 1972), was named to the all-time AFL honor team in 1969 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.
