    Delhomme, Palmer and Brunell in 989 Sports Quarterback Challenge

    Annual event showcasing NFL quarterbacks in head-to-head competition set to air July 17-18, on CBS Sports

    Some of the NFL's top quarterbacks including Jake Delhomme (Carolina Panthers), Carson Palmer (Cincinnati Bengals), and Mark Brunell (Washington Redskins) will participate in a series of challenges that test their various football skills when they appear in the 989 SPORTSŪ NFL Quarterback Challenge, set to air nationally as two, one-hour specials on Saturday, July 17, from 5-6 p.m. ET/2-3 p.m. PT and Sunday, July 18, from 2-3 p.m. ET/11-12 p.m. PT, on CBS Sports.


    Currently in its 15th consecutive year, the competition tests the NFL’s premier quarterbacks in four different skills competitions, including accuracy, speed and mobility, distance, and "No Huddle." Other current quarterbacks featured in the taped event, which took place in Santa Monica, Calif. earlier this year include Marc Bulger (St. Louis Rams), Trent Green (Kansas City Chiefs), Joey Harrington (Detroit Lions), Matt Hasselbeck (Seattle Seahawks), Byron Leftwich (Jacksonville Jaguars), and Josh McCown (Arizona Cardinals).


    Added in 2003, this year's event will again feature top NFL wide receivers including Torry Holt (St. Louis Rams), Keenan McCardell (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Anquan Boldin (Arizona Cardinals), and Troy Brown (New England Patriots). Quarterback Greats Randall Cunningham (Philadelphia Eagles), Jim Kelly (Buffalo Bills), Warren Moon (Houston Oilers), as well as Boomer Esiason (Cincinnati Bengals), who will be pulling double-duty when he also participates as part of the CBS Sports broadcast team, also will be featured participants in this year's event. Joining Esiason on the telecast are NFL on CBS broadcast teammates Gus Johnson and sideline reporter Bonnie Bernstein.


    In addition to the visibility of having 989 SportsŪ brand as part of the official event name, the sponsorship package includes eight television commercial spots during the on-air event. The 989 SportsŪ brand also will be visible with logos integrated throughout the program in such areas as the field, leaderboard, and awards presentation. Print ads also will display the 989 SportsŪ logo and will be located in both Sports Illustrated and USA Today.


    The associate sponsor of the show is Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corporation and GlaxoSmithKline, co-marketers of Levitra.

    Didn't Bulger do REALLY well at this last season? If I remember right the thing that kept him from winning was his long ball. Also, I believe Bruce was one of the receivers.

      I'll give them Brunell, but I wouldn't rank Delhomme or Palmer among the league's top quarterbacks.

        No doubt. How the hell did they figure Carson Palmer was one of the NFL's top quarterbacks!??

          My thoughts exactly. The guy hasn't played one down of regular season football, but he's one of the best in the league. Talk about over aggressive advertising.
