Ten Jacksonville Jaguars told their stories. Now, fans can help turn one of them into the NFL's Super Bowl commercial at NFL.com/SuperAd.
DAVID GARRARD and JOE ZELENKA are featured in a head-to-head competition against their rivals from the AFC South in the NFL's "Super Ad: Believe In Now" promotion.
NFL Films traveled to NFL training camps and team facilities to capture the players' stories. Now fans will have the opportunity to hear these unique tales and get an exclusive look at some of their favorite NFL players, such as:
• David Garrard, who recounts having former NFL player Dewayne Washington come to his elementary school to talk about staying in school and working hard, only to later become Washington's teammate.
• Joe Zelenka, who spent years bragging about his imaginary fan club until he discovered his real one.
Fans can visit the Jaguars section to also see: ANTHONY COTRONE, CLEO LEMON, TONY McDANIEL, JEREMY MINCEY, MONTELL OWENS, D'JUAN WOODS and GEORGE WRIGHSTER.
Fans will vote on the 24 stories from AFC players on nfl.com/superad from December 4 - 17. Four AFC stories, one from each division, will be selected to continue to the Championship Round where they will compete against four videos from the NFC as well as one wildcard video. The Championship Round runs from December 18, 2008 – January 4, 2009. Fans will have eighteen days to vote for their favorites with a Super Bowl appearance on the line.
Fans can visit the "All Videos" section to watch all 210 NFL players' stories posted on nfl.com/superad. Fans will then watch the winning pitch, and the player who told it, during Super Bowl XLIII on Sunday, February 1 on NBC.
