WASHINGTON -- Heath Shuler feigns surprise. "You mean they were booing me?" he says. "I thought it was because a beach ball got taken away from the crowd." Laughing about your NFL career, it seems, is mandatory if you're Shuler and it's draft time. It's the time of year when the media create lists inevitably ranking the former quarterback, elected to Congress from North Carolina in 2006, as one of the league's all-time draft busts. "I'm just proud that I'm still making a list," Shuler, 36, says.

WASHINGTON -- In Virginia Commonwealth, Maryland faced just the sort of "mid-major" that - like Butler or George Mason - can send shivers through the souls of major-conference opponents. The Atlantic Coast Conference will long remember VCU for its upset of Duke in last season's NCAA tournament. So Maryland had a sense of what was coming last night - a competitive game (it was) likely to come down to the finish (it did).

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The cheap rookie overshadowed the rich rookie last night for the Washington Redskins.Unheralded Gus Frerotte, the seventh-round draft choice who's only costing the Redskins $125,000 this year, was more impressive than the team's $19.25 million first-round draft choice, Heath Shuler, when they both made their debuts in an exhibition game against the Buffalo Bills.Even though the Redskins lost, 13-11, Frerotte put them into position to win when Chris Jacke tried a 35-yard field-goal attempt as time expired that would have won the game.
