Stars and legends to compete in QB Challenge ?

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (May 9, 2005) -- Some of the National Football League's top quarterbacks -- past and present -- will converge on Greater Fort Lauderdale Friday, May 13, to compete in the 2005 EA SPORTS NFL Quarterback Challenge. The Bahia Mar Beach Resort & Yachting Center will be outfitted with FieldTurf and transformed into a football field for the competition, which will be televised on CBS Sports July 16-17. One thousand local middle school students will serve as the audience for the event, which is not open to the public.

In its 16th year, the EA SPORTS NFL Quarterback Challenge tests the NFL's premier quarterbacks, which this year include: Drew Brees (San Diego Chargers), Jake Delhomme (Carolina Panthers), Joey Harrington (Detroit Lions), Matt Hasselbeck (Seattle Seahawks), Byron Leftwich (Jacksonville Jaguars), Carson Palmer (Cincinnati Bengals) and Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh Steelers). The quarterbacks will compete in four different skills competitions: accuracy, speed and mobility, long distance throw and "No Huddle." Participating in the "No Huddle" timed event in which the quarterback must complete passes to receivers are Torry Holt (St. Louis Rams), Joe Horn (New Orleans Saints), Chad Johnson (Cincinnati Bengals) and Keenan McCardell (San Diego Chargers).

Some of the NFL's quarterback greats, including John Elway, Boomer Esiason, Bernie Kosar and Dan Marino, also will compete in a separate competition during the event.

"This year, the focus for Madden NFL 06 is on passing, marking the first time in 10 years that we have changed this important part of the game," said Jordan Edelstein, director of marketing, Electronic Arts. "Our new innovative QB vision and precision feature brings authentic NFL passing to all players, making the Quarterback Challenge the perfect fit."

"We are thrilled to host some of the current and former stars of the National Football League in Greater Fort Lauderdale for the 2005 Quarterback Challenge," said Nicki E. Grossman, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. "It's the perfect event for Greater Fort Lauderdale to host as we gear up for Super Bowl XLI in 2007."

In addition to event title sponsor EA SPORTS, other sponsors include: Foot Locker/Champs Sports, Pepsi, Prilosec, TGI Friday's, Upper Deck, Visa and X-Box.

The event will air nationally on CBS Sports as two, one-hour specials on Saturday, July 16 (5 - 6 p.m. ET), and Sunday, July 17 (2-3 p.m. ET). Rich Eisen of NFL Network will team with CBS Sports' Esiason and Bonnie Bernstein as the event broadcasters.

Sorry guys but none of those QB qualify as stars. I think only Drew Brees has ever made the pro-bowl.

Delhomme might have gone to a Super Bowl but "NFL greats" like Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson have at least won one.

It will be interesting to see how well Joey measures up to the rest of the players in the competition.

Aaron Brooks won the distance and accuracy competitions, does that make him the best QB there?? Poor Brady finished dead last and Manning barely passed Flutie for 4th, that must mean Brady and Manning suck.

Hasselbeck won it last year:

Matt Hasselbeck and Warren Moon took top honors at the 989 SPORTS NFL Quarterback Challenge earlier this month, shown on CBS Sports. Hasselbeck defeated eight other quarterbacks to win a watch from Tiffany's, while Moon defeated three "NFL Greats" to earn bragging rights over his peers. (Highlights in the Photo Gallery)

"I had a lot of fun," says Matt on the Challenge. "Honestly, I was hoping to win one event, and to win two and to win the whole thing felt like I was in a dream. It was real cool. The guys I got to be there with and compete with-the Jim Kellys, the Boomer Esiasons, the Randall Cunninghams, the Warren Moons-it was a thrill all around."

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 this event, which took place in Santa Monica, Calif. earlier this year, included Jake Delhomme (Carolina Panthers), Carson Palmer (Cincinnati Bengals), Mark Brunell (Washington Redskins), Marc Bulger (St. Louis Rams), Trent Green (Kansas City Chiefs), Joey Harrington (Detroit Lions), Byron Leftwich (Jacksonville Jaguars) and Josh McCown (Arizona Cardinals).

Added in 2003, this year's event featured 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 (Seattle Seahawks) and Boomer Esiason (Cincinnati Bengals) also participated in this year's event.

As far as I know, the results won't be announced until the airing on CBS July 16 and 17.

"The event will air nationally on CBS Sports as two, one-hour specials on Saturday, July 16 (5 - 6 p.m. ET), and Sunday, July 17 (2-3 p.m. ET). Rich Eisen of NFL Network will team with CBS Sports' Esiason and Bonnie Bernstein as the event broadcasters."

Yeah, people shouldn't look too hard into these things, for that reason you mentioned.

The only source I've seen that is the print of the Freep. There's nothing on freep.com that says this. I haven't looked at Det news. Plus, the NFL said the results wouldn't be announced until the CBS air date. Maybe the Freep had an insider there...an anti-Lion insider like Drew Sharp...
