"The biggest thing in the game of football is to get the ball out of your hands and into playmakers' hands and let people make plays for you." Brad Johnson (above) Who is taking over for injured Daunte Culpepper as Minnesota Vikings quarterback "We can't let ego get in the way of winning. We can't let stats get in the way of winning. We can't let friends get in the way, family get in the way. Whatever, we can't let anything get in the way." Mike Dunleavy Los Angeles Clippers coach "I never knew what they said I had until I read it in the paper."

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome has just three weeks and 1 1/2 miles of racing in the June 7 Belmont Stakes ahead of him in his bid to become horse racing's 12th Triple Crown winner, a task that has proved impossible in the new era of racing. Since Affirmed last won the Triple Crown in 1978, more horses have completed the Derby-Preakness double (12) without adding the third jewel than have won all three in the series' 139-year-history (11). And with each double-winning horse who falls short at Belmont Park, known as the "Test of the Champion," the racing community is left to wonder whether the three-race sweep will ever be achieved again.

His biceps, chest and legs are massive. All season, the press has focused on second-year quarterback Daunte Culpepper's physique and athleticism. But if you ask the Minnesota Vikings what impresses them most about Culpepper, they skip the anatomy and go straight to his mental makeup. Teammates rave about his poise. They consider him mature beyond his years, and his brilliant performance in the Vikings' 34-16 thrashing of the New Orleans Saints on Saturday - Culpepper's first playoff game - solidified the belief.

Dynamic Impact's connections weren't sure what they had entering the April 19 Illinois Derby. The colt had flashed plenty of talent, but his performance in the afternoon never seemed to match his workouts in the morning. Facing the best competition of his life and starting from the No. 1 post, Dynamic Impact changed the narrative with a victory that surprised even his trainers. Four weeks later, he's a 12-1 fifth choice in the morning line at the Preakness. Is he simply a late bloomer?

The celebrated quarterback class of the 1999 draft had more misses than hits in the first round, a development that cost an untold number of jobs - from personnel down to coaches - in the ensuing years. Tim Couch couldn't deliver on his status as first pick of the Cleveland Browns' expansion effort. Akili Smith failed to resuscitate the terminally bad Cincinnati Bengals. Cade McNown bombed with the Chicago Bears. They represented the first, third and 12th picks in the draft. Five years later, only Donovan McNabb and Daunte Culpepper remain from the first round.

The numbers are monstrous. Eighteen touchdown passes in five games, 1,766 passing yards, better than 72 percent completions. Minnesota Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper has never played better. "That's a heck of an offensive football team," New Orleans Saints coach Jim Haslett said, "and I don't know if there's a quarterback that's playing at a higher level than him, or ever played at a higher level than him." That was after Culpepper burned Haslett's defense for 425 yards and five touchdown passes in a 38-31 shootout win last Sunday night.

The Ravens wouldn't be the leading candidate to sign soon-to-be released Daunte Culpepper, but they have not eliminated the possibility of adding the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, a league source said. Because the Ravens are committed to Steve McNair as their starter, it's unsure whether Culpepper would want to come here since he might have an opportunity to compete for a starting job elsewhere, the source added. Culpepper, who is expected to be cut by the Miami Dolphins, has been linked to the Ravens because McNair is 34 and backup Kyle Boller is only signed through this season.

As Brad Johnson reflects on how he helped right a Minnesota Vikings team that had all but run amok, the veteran quarterback essentially gives a summation of his league-wide reputation. Johnson, never known for having the strongest of arms or the flashiest of statistics, has started seven games for an injured Daunte Culpepper, relying on a steady hand and smart decisions in leading the team to six wins. "Really, I'm just trying to make the correct read, put us in the right position, make the right run check, make the right pass check and score when we get in the red zone.

PHILADELPHIA - Every NFL game develops a theme. Six long days are wedged between kickoffs. In many places, the buildup and the game are the biggest event of the week, transcending even crime and local politics. Last week was a no-brainer here. Donovan McNabb and Daunte Culpepper, the second and fourth quarterbacks selected in the deep 1999 draft, would go mano a mano for the first time. Or QB-o a QB-o, if you prefer. McNabb played less than half a season for Andy Reid's doormat '99 Eagles.

Custodians at the Church of the Redeemer have struggled this winter to keep its sidewalks clear of snow, but the one flush against North Charles Street in Homeland - buried by nearly every plow that passes - proved too much. The city issued the church a citation for failing to clear the walk. "One of our custodians has been here 30 years, and he doesn't ever recall having that happen before," said Ellen Chatard, program director at the church. It has been a snowy winter with 26.5 inches through Tuesday - nearly 10 inches more than average - and another 1 to 3 inches forecast for Wednesday morning.

Mike Tidwell is correct that the evidence for global climate change is indisputable and that carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels and alterations in the earth's ecosystems is the primary cause ("Forecast calls for pain," Feb. 6). Since the carbon already in the atmosphere will persist for a thousand years, we must stop and not merely reduce greenhouse gas emissions if we are to stabilize the current status. I agree that society must put a price on carbon dioxide emissions for the universal harm they do. In so doing, as the price increases, clean, non-carbon energy sources will become competitive in the marketplace.

Here's what I'm thinking: We get La Famille DeBeaufre to establish a second bakery in Sparrows Point and ship their beloved Berger Cookies all over the world — to China, India, Brazil, Mexico and other nations with rising economies. And maybe we send some cookies to North Korea to give those poor people a treat and the inspiration they need to rise up against the rocket club president who serves as their dictator. Think of it: Berger Cookies as an instrument of international influence, revolution and peace.

Howard County has about 8,000 fewer young adults than 10 years ago, according to the U.S. Census. And some officials believe the county's high living costs may be the reason. The Howard County Department of Planning and Zoning used data from the 2010 Census to show a decline of adults 30 to 39 years old over the past decade. The county also had about 800 fewer infants and children. "If you put those two together, it may indicate that many young families are having difficulty living in Howard County," said Duane St. Clair, the director of the Association of Community Services of Howard County, a network of community organizations.

Paul Johnson had grown tired of the question. It was 2008, and the former Navy coach — entering his first season at Georgia Tech — was repeatedly asked by the media whether the option-based offense he ran so successfully at Navy would translate in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Johnson folded his arms and exhaled. "I get a kick out of, 'Will this work on this level?' he said. "I'm like, 'Are we playing the NFC East?' Last I looked, the last six years at Navy, we were playing Division I teams.

Census takers will begin hand-delivering questionnaires to rural parts of Maryland today, two weeks before mailing surveys to residents in more urban areas. It takes more time to visit households in rural areas, which are usually farther apart, said Joe Quartullo, area manager at the Philadelphia Regional Census Center that oversees the census in Maryland. Also, some rural households have irregular addresses that can make mailing questionnaires difficult. Visiting about 12 million rural households nationwide, census enumerators plan to target rural Maryland pockets, such as some areas in Calvert and St. Mary's counties and parts of Western Maryland.

Quarterback Daunte Culpepper (right) and the Detroit Lions have agreed on a contract, although the length and financial terms of the deal were not clear. Coach Rod Marinelli, who made the announcement after his team's 27-23 loss to the Chicago Bears yesterday, would not answer questions about the deal but did say it hinges on the results of a pending nonorthopedic physical. At 0-8, the Lions clearly need help. How much Culpepper, 31, can provide remains to be seen. He planned to retire in December because he was frustrated over not finding work after a knee injury limited him with the Miami Dolphins in 2006 and Oakland Raiders in 2007.

Dismissing speculation that the Ravens have shown interest in Minnesota Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper, general manager Ozzie Newsome said yesterday that there have been no trade talks between the two teams. The Ravens are looking for a veteran to compete with Kyle Boller or back him up, which could prove difficult considering the free-agent market in March should be bleak. If Culpepper is available - there has been increasing tension between the Vikings and their three-time Pro Bowl quarterback - he would be among the best options for the Ravens.

As programmers and public broadcasting executives from across the country come together starting Monday in Baltimore for the annual PBS Showcase conference, they face what could be the most challenging time in the history of American public broadcasting. The people responsible for producing and distributing such iconic TV series as The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and Nova must confront a world financial crisis, deep cuts in funding, increased competition, and vast technological and cultural shifts in the way viewers demand content and broadcasters try to provide it. Indeed, attendance at the annual conference is expected to be lower than usual as public TV stations cut back on travel budgets.

If desire and determination were bankable commodities, Tywain McKee would already be on easy street. From the first moment he bounced a basketball as a toddler, he could imagine doing little else. Speed bumps have slowed McKee down, but couldn't stop him. Detours ended not in dead ends, but remarkable success. McKee, a fifth-year senior, plays his final game at Coppin Center tonight against Morgan State in what could also be the final men's game in the 22-year-old gym. (The Eagles are scheduled to move into a new arena sometime next season.
