CBS Sports Network to Break Huddle with 'NFL Monday QB' Series8/21/2012 2:25 PM Eastern
In what officials say will be the first of a number of NFL programming initiatives, CBS Sports Network will kick off a signal caller's review show of the Sunday action.
NFL Monday QB will serve as a forum for CBS lead analyst Phil Simms, fellow former pro football passers Rich Gannon and Steve Beuerlein and others to examine the performance of the current players manning the most important position in sports.
With NFL Monday QB Simms (the most valuable player of Super Bowl XXI) Gannon, who played in Super Bowl XXXVII and was the 2002 NFL MVP, and Beuerlein, a 1999 All-Pro, will present their opinions, and break-down the week's games - purely from a quarterback perspective. They will focus on how those players impacted the games via key plays, clutch drives, crucial decisions, star turns, and winning and losing efforts.
Additional contributors during select weeks will include other quarterbacks from The NFL on CBS roster: Hall of Fame quarterbacks Dan Marino and Dan Fouts, and Super Bowl XXIII quarterback and 1988 NFL MVP, Boomer Esiason.
Adam Schein will host from the CBS Sports Network studio at Chelsea Piers in New York, with the quarterbacks weighing in from around the country.
The one-hour show debuts Monday, Sept. 10 at 5 p.m. (ET) due to ESPN's opening Monday Night Football doubleheader. Thereafter, NFL Monday QB will airs weekly through Super Bowl XLVII from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
"I've been wanting to do a show like this for years," said Simms in a statement. "Now we have the opportunity to do a totally different show than anyone has ever seen. The fans are going to find out, even though it's going to be all quarterbacks, we all see it differently. I'm really looking forward to hearing everyone's opinions and getting a few things off my chest right after the games on Mondays. It's going to be a lot of fun."
