ASHBURN, Va. -- To be a cornerback in the NFL, it's not enough to have talent."There's a certain temperament you have to have to be a cornerback," said coach Richie Petitbon of the Washington Redskins. "You have to have a gunslinger's mentality. You have to have the ability to forget the last play. Cornerbacks are going to get beat. They all get beat. Guys who brood about stuff like that think themselves right out of a job."Petitbon thinks that A. J. Johnson, who has stepped in for the departed Martin Mayhew, has that quality.

Every team in the Football Championship Subdivision dreams of a perfect season -- and five weeks into the season, that dream is alive for only six programs. Towson, which remained at No. 3 in the most recent FCS poll announced by The Sports Network, is one of those teams, but coach Rob Ambrose said no one could have anticipated the school's 5-0 start, which includes a 1-0 record in the Colonial Athletic Association. “No one in their right mind truly does it like that and not be insane,” Ambrose quipped Monday morning during a conference call.

Their busy lives have kept them running in different directions for years, so the Shock sisters, all six of them, have decided to run together -- in local road races. At a 5K run in Patterson Park this weekend, sponsored by the State's Attorney's Office and Baltimore Child Abuse Center, the sisters are planning to be together again on the race course, thanks to a combination of personal motivation and good-natured sibling rivalry. "There's always the goal of beating my sisters," says Peggy Hughes, 44, of East Baltimore.

Lynne Brick loves to garden - and she knows how to stay healthy and safe while she's digging in the dirt. Brick, a veteran gardener and the president and founder of the local gym chains Brick Bodies and Lynne Brick's Women's Health and Fitness, knows that gardening is no lazy hobby. It can be a great workout and enjoyable pastime, but it can also be a source of pain and difficulties. "Gardening is a great way to be active," says Brick. "It's a combination of strength, flexibility and endurance training.

Demetrius Williams still titillates the Ravens the way he first did when they saw him at Oregon. Big body, velvet hands, sprinter's speed. The Ravens loved the profile when they drafted him in the fourth round in 2006, and they love it now. But three years later, they need more than the promise he offers as a deep threat. They need more than three touchdown catches in three seasons. Most of all, they need him to move past a nettlesome ankle injury that has kept him out of 19 games, including playoffs, the past two seasons.

On the Orioles' projected lineup [Melvin] Mora is going to kill us in the 2 spot. He's 35 and on a three-year down trend. I'd move [Jay] Payton and [Corey] Patterson to the 2 hole. Against righties, [Kevin] Millar should definitely be in the lineup over Jay Payton. For all of his many faults, Millar does do a good job of getting on base. Provided [Aubrey] Huff and [Jay] Gibbons can stay healthy, they both are potential 30-homer guys.

1. The Redskins need to settle on the interior offensive line positions and have them produce, both in the running game and pass protection. 2. They must get some consistency and big plays at quarterback, whether it's Shane Matthews or Danny Wuerffel throwing the ball. 3. Their young wide receivers must come through and be in sync with the quarterback. Rod Gardner is the No. 1 receiver and he's only in his second season. 4. Running back Stephen Davis needs to be used in the passing game and given enough carries to represent a running threat.

The Orioles acquired Melvin Mora in a July 2000 trade that sent shortstop Mike Bordick to the New York Mets. A two-time All-Star third baseman, Mora hit .274 last year with 16 home runs and 83 RBIs while playing a career-high 155 games. Mora, who signed a three-year contract extension with the Orioles in May, lives in Fallston with his wife Gisel and six children. The couple had quintuplets on July 28, 2001. What's the hardest part of being a father of quintuplets? -- For me, the hardest part is when we have a meeting in the school.

SARASOTA, Fla. - More than a decade after he broke into the major leagues, first baseman Nick Johnson has little doubt that he can still hit a baseball. That part of the game has never been a problem for Johnson, signed by the Orioles to a minor league deal a week before spring training began here at the Ed Smith Stadium complex. Staying on the field has. Coming up with the New York Yankees in 2001, Johnson was seen as one of the most promising hitters in the game, but injuries often stepped in the way of potential.

A few months before his wedding, Neill Howell was tipping the scales at 240 pounds and knew he needed to make a change. There was just one problem: Howell was the executive chef in a restaurant kitchen, a high-stress workplace full of ready-to-grab calories and little opportunity to work them off. Three years later, Howell has oatmeal before work and packs himself a healthy meal for the middle of the shift. He does Muay Thai, a vigorous combat sport that emphasizes conditioning and has proved to be an effective stress reliever.

New Year's resolutions are the kiss of death. We all know this. So instead of drafting some sweeping resolution we know darn well we'll never keep, how about thinking small for 2012. How about trying one thing — maybe two — that just might nudge you a tiny bit closer to "fit" and "healthy. " And don't take it from us — we asked local folks who each, in their own way, have already resolved to live healthy, fit lives, to share one fitness secret and healthful eating tip. These things work for them.

Containers of hand sanitizer have been deployed near the doors at St. Mary's in Annapolis. The doorknobs are being cleaned between Masses, and the bathrooms are getting more attention. The Rev. John Kingsbury has practiced giving Communion without touching the hand of the recipient. But the pastor still worries about the impact on the 16,000-member Catholic parish if the H1N1 virus hits the community hard. "I think the spiritual side is the one that has yet to be faced," Kingsbury said.

The water's lapping at your freshly manicured toes. The sun's shining down on your back and your Blackberry is most definitely turned off. It's a glorious beach moment. But sun seekers beware: A dazzling day at the shore can be the perfect summer escape, but don't let the relaxation put you off your guard. When it comes to sun, there can be too much of a good thing. Heat exhaustion and sunburn are not just minor annoyances; they can be harmful. Heat-related illness, ranging from cramps to life-threatening heatstroke, happens when the body struggles to cool itself.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -Based solely on resumes, the Orioles' 2009 bullpen should be a major strength. George Sherrill is an All-Star closer, and Chris Ray has a 33-save season and an electric arsenal. Jim Johnson was one of baseball's best setup men last year, and veteran Jamie Walker has made a career of shutting down left-handed hitters. Dennis Sarfate and Matt Albers are young, versatile pitchers with strong arms and untapped potential. On paper, this version of the Orioles' bullpen looks to be the club's best since 2002, when it ranked second in the American League in ERA. But there's a catch - one that will go a long way toward determining the success of this season.
