Vikes Limiting Favre's Throws

The Minnesota Vikings reportedly are closely monitoring the number of throws made by quarterback Brett Favre, who has said he has a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder.

"You have to keep an eye on it," Vikings Coach Brad Childress said, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "... By his own admission, he probably threw 200 balls in the Jets' first day of practice [last year] and probably set himself back, with the fans and the crowd--trying to show off, a little bit."

Favre underwent offseason surgery for the partially torn biceps tendon that plagued him last season while he was with the New York Jets.

He said after coming out of retirement to sign with the Vikings last week, three weeks after declining to report to training camp with the club and telling Childress he planned to stay retired, that orthopedist James Andrews had told him that he also has a tear in his rotator cuff that didn't require surgery.

Redskins will finish with a 4-12 record.

Jason Campbell, is definitely - not - an NFL quarterback.

It's time to say goodbye to Vincent Cerrato.

Too bad, Danny Dnyder.

Maryland basketball will finish with a 15-16 record

No NCAA bid

No NIT bid

Maryland Football will finish with a 2-10 record.

Maryland's defensive line and linebacker corps are a joke --- no pass rush whatsoever and give up a ton of long yardage plays.

I have seen harder hitting teams in powder puff leagues.

The only hard hits the Terps make - are out of bound plays - which cost them an additional 15 yards - which are quite frequent.

California's running back - Best - will gain 296 yards in the opening game

I love it, when Maryland constantly gets embarrassed on national TV.


California -- 56
Maryland -- 10

It's hilarious to see Maryland win a game - and the very next week get clobbered by a Virginia Tech - Boston College.

It is great to see Maryland go down to a crushing defeat on the football recruiting front (the kids they have received commitments from - are a joke! - taking the bottom of the barrel)

Carolina Blue - Carolina WHITE - Go Tar Heels - Let's go Tar Heels !
