1. McDonogh Coach: Chris Robinson Last season: 20-0, ranked No. 1 Postseason: IAAM A Conference champion Outlook: The Eagles have won two straight A Conference crowns, and that streak should continue despite a tough schedule both in the conference and out. Every year the Eagles graduate some of the area's best players, but they have so much depth that they can simply reload. Speed, skill, depth, firepower, defense — they've got it all. 2. Notre Dame Prep Coaches : Mary Bartel, Lisa Costello Last season: 18-4, No. 2 Postseason: IAAM A Conference runner-up Outlook: About half of the Blazers' starters graduated, so they have some rebuilding to do early, but don't expect that to last long.

An 8-7 double-overtime loss to the Rochester Rattlers a week ago left the Chesapeake Bayhawks with their fifth defeat in six games. But the play of the defense planted a few seeds for hope. The unit allowed a season low in goals and also limited a Rochester offense that had scored 18 goals in a rout of the Florida Launch on June 1. Chesapeake goalkeeper Kip Turner, an Annapolis native and Severn School graduate, made a season-high 18 saves. “Rochester scored 18 goals the week before, and we held them to seven through overtime,” Bayhawks coach Dave Cottle said during a league-wide conference call on Wednesday.

The Edmondson and New Town boys basketball teams were making it hard on each other to score baskets in a game at Friday's 18th Annual Basketball Academy, with tough defense having the bigger say. Titans guard Danny Shand was able to find his offense at just the right time. The senior captain scored all of his game-high 16 points in the fourth quarter, helping No. 14 New Town rally for a 49-44 upset win over No. 4 Edmondson at Morgan State. New Town didn't make its first field goal until there was 5:06 left to play in the first half, and the team had scored only 22 points going into the fourth quarter.

Even though two defensive linemen could be taken in the first three picks, there is a good chance that an appealing one will fall to the Ravens near the bottom of the first round next week. Penn State's Jared Odrick, the consensus No. 3 defensive tackle in the draft, fits the personality of the Ravens' defense. In commenting on Odrick's high-energy play and toughness, one team official recently said, "He plays like a Raven." Odrick was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year by the league's coaches after he recorded 43 tackles last season for the Nittany Lions.

The Bengals rode the Wayback Machine on Sunday, all the way to last season. Grumble about the tactics, if you want. The win looks the same. You say the offense looks dysfunctional. The victory says the offense was patient. You say Carson Palmer isn't using his new toys. The win says too much playtime isn't good for the bottom line. At least we can agree on the defense. The defense was magnificent. Having coached defense in Baltimore and faced the Ravens too many times to count as Bengals coach, Marvin Lewis knows how to beat Baltimore.

As its costs continue to spiral upward, most people now agree that America's health care system is broken. And as the race for the White House heats up, politicians on both sides of the aisle are clamoring to propose ideas that rein in health spending. Unfortunately, the policies offered thus far are misguided. As counterintuitive as it may sound, the answer to America's health care woes won't be found by harping over the price of care. Consider prescription drugs. Americans now take more drugs - and spend more on them - than ever before.

The letter by Paul Romney ("Guns don't make us safer," Feb. 18), commenting on a previous letter by Carl Russell ("Murder makes the case for firearms in the home," Feb. 14), both concerning the recent murder of a woman by her ex-boyfriend, bracket the firearms debate. But what I want to know is: How did the ex get into the woman's apartment? Was her apartment equipped with a steel door, or a peephole, or a hall video camera, or an alarm system, or a safe room, or a panic button, or a big, mean dog?

  In response to the article, "ER visits might hit high hark," which ran the week of May 26, I agree wholeheartedly that the emergency room is not the ideal place to be treated for minor injuries or illnesses, nor for care that should be provided at lower-cost facilities, including urgent-care centers and primary-care practices. However, while the article encouraged individuals to seek medical attention for minor illness and injury from urgent-care centers, it totally overlooked the role that primary-care practices play in limiting unnecessary trips to the ER through comprehensive and cost-effective preventive and acute care.

— The entire football-watching world knows about the Baltimore defense that will play against the Chiefs on Sunday in a first-round playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium. The Ravens are big and physical, tough against the run and feature four Pro Bowlers, including fiery linebacker Ray Lewis. The defensive Chiefs are still a mystery, even in their own locker room. Several defensive players, asked the identity of their unit, had different answers. The Chiefs have no defensive Pro Bowl players.

McDonogh Coach: Chris Robinson Last season: 19-0, ranked No. 1 Postseason: IAAM A Conference champion Outlook: Riding a 51-game winning streak, the Eagles know every one of their opponents has that game circled in red on its schedule. With eight returning starters, including All-Metro Player of the Year Taylor Cummings, the Eagles show no signs of letting up. Look for them to make a strong run at their fourth straight A Conference championship.

The Cincinnati Bengals defense barges into Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium with 25 sacks, which is the eighth-highest total in the NFL. Twelve players -- including all eight defensive linemen -- have a hand in at least one sack. Cincinnati's talent and depth on the defensive line has not gone unnoticed by Baltimore's big men up front, who will be tasked with building a wall around quarterback Joe Flacco on Sunday. Flacco has thrown 150 passes in the team's past three games, making pass protection even more critical.

A show of hands: How many of us think about what covers our feet? Time was, when we bought socks for athletic pursuits, we opted for a bag of white tube socks or suffered in itchy silence as we slid our feet into a new pair of ragg wool socks. No more. With summer over and people trading in their sandals and flip flops for socks and shoes, it's decision time. Dr. Ross Taubman, a Baltimore area podiatrist, says he's beginning to have conversations with his patients in transition to fall footwear.
