Quick Hit Announces Starting Line-Up of 2009 NFL Players

Play Against Cassel, Lewis, Umenyiora, Westbrook and Witten in Quick Hit Football

FOXBORO, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/02/09 -- Quick Hit, Inc. ("Quick Hit"), a leading developer and publisher of premium, free-to-play online sports games, today announced its five "Starters" for the 2009 Quick Hit Football(TM) season. The National Football League superstars include:

-- Matt Cassel     - Quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs
-- Ray Lewis       - Linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens
-- Osi Umenyiora   - Defensive End for the New York Giants
-- Brian Westbrook - Running Back for the Philadelphia Eagles
-- Jason Witten    - Tight End for the Dallas Cowboys

As Starters, these five NFL stand-outs will be prominently featured in the single player version of the game and throughout the website. Each Starter will have a key role on one of the Head Coach teams this season, including teams led by Bill Cowher, Brian Billick, Jimmy Johnson, Dan Reeves and Tom Landry. Fans will see, for example, the incomparable Ray Lewis reunited under the expert leadership of Coach Billick, and get a chance to experience his bone-crushing tackles first-hand in a free-to-play, online football game.

"Our 2009 Starters are some of the premier players in the NFL and give even more authenticity to Quick Hit Football," said Jeffrey Anderson, founder and CEO of Quick Hit. "We're excited to offer fans the chance to play against these elite players -- whether it's trying to stop Umenyiora's pass rush or Westbrook's power sweep."

Fans will be able to play against Quick Hit Football's 2009 Starters in single-player mode:

--  Matt Cassel -- He burst into the NFL as the New England Patriots'
    starting Quarterback last season, leading them to an impressive 11-5 record
    while passing for 21 TDs and 3,693 yards. He's only the fifth player to
    have back-to-back 400-yard passing games.

--  Ray Lewis -- One of the league's premier Linebackers, Lewis is a 10-
    time Pro Bowler, eight-time AP All-Pro, two-time NFL Defensive Player of
    the Year, and the MVP of Super Bowl XXXV. The Ravens' franchise leader with
    2,182 career tackles (1,451 solo), he has posted 33.5 sacks, 28 INTs, 102
    PD, and 14 fumble recoveries in his career.

--  Osi Umenyiora -- The only member of the Super Bowl-champion Giants
    selected to the Pro Bowl, Umenyiora is undoubtedly one of the NFL's best
    Defensive Ends. In his short but remarkable career, he has already recorded
    an impressive 238 tackles (164 solo), 41.5 sacks, 9 passes defended, 14
    forced fumbles and 8 fumble recoveries.

--  Brian Westbrook -- Called "the ultimate weapon" by his teammates,
    Westbrook is the only active NFL player with 20-or-more TDs in both rushing
    and receiving (27 rush, 23 rec). He has 66 career TDs and has rushed for
    more than 5,700 yards. Since 2003, no other Running Back has had more
    receiving yards or a better yard per touch average.

--  Jason Witten -- Widely regarded as one of the top Tight Ends in the
    NFL, Witten is a three-time Pro Bowl selection and the first Cowboys' Tight
    End (and just the 10th in NFL history) with more than 60 catches in three
    consecutive seasons and he even holds the team record with 87 catches in
    2004.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
