It’s that kind of impact tight end Kalief Joyner worked all summer to be able to produce. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound senior played behind Chris Hartney, who is now at Pace, last season and blew up on the college camp circuit over the summer. He now has interest from UConn, Rutgers, Syracuse, Maryland, Purdue, Penn State and Boston College. Joyner is an excellent blocker. He and 6-foot-6 Jordan Fuchs, also a basketball star for the Royals, will be big targets for Gluick.“I think we can be just as explosive as last year,” Joyner said. “We are more cohesive. We have to work together to produce.”
Hunt’s era at the Middle Village school ended with one of the best individual season in recent this years. This group feels it is ready to continue that in a wide open CHSFL Class AA-A division.
“Now that we are a winning team,” Gluick said, "we want to maintain the winning record.”

That's Doug Hogue on the right going up against Stephen Tulloch during a linebacker drill at Allen Park on Wednesday
This unit is solid and deep but lacks that one terrorizing force that collects sacks, TFL, or interceptions. DeAndre Levy is solid and versatile enough to play all 3 LB positions. Levy needs to stay healthy to make that next step. Stephen Tulloch is a tackling machine at MLB. He is solid in pass coverage and hits like a ton of bricks. He signed a one year contract that the Lions should extend. Bobby Carpenter looked good when the Lions brought him in and will compete with athletic the Justin Durant on the strong side. Ashley Palmer and Doug Hogue will provide depth. Hogue, 5th round selection, is very raw but I see him as a future force.
2011 NFL Draft:
Did the Lions need Nick Fairley? No. Was Fairly the best player on the board when the Lions drafted? Yes. He is a force and teamed with Suh should form the backbone of this defense for years to come. In round two the Lions acquired Titus Young and Mikel Leshoure to round out the weapons for Matthew Stafford. Round 5 I believe the Lions got a steal in extremely gifted, yet raw LB Doug Hogue. I was disappointed the Lions did not take any OL talent. B+
Minnesota Vikings team report: Donovan McNabb to play into third quarter with ...
INJURY UPDATE: Gamble dislocated his finger but it was reset by the medical staff and he’s not expected to miss any game time, Rivera said. If worse comes to worse Gamble can wear a small cast on his hand.
The Panthers expect to get starters Jeff Otah, Greg Hardy and Tony Fiammetta back to practice this week. It’s unclear when Jon Beason (Achilles) and RG Geoff Schwartz (hip) will return

The Vikings will host the Cowboys on Saturday night in their first game at Mall of America Field since a snowstorm tore a hole in the roof in December.
Now that the Vikings have Donovan McNabb at quarterback, they'll have to worry about holes being punched in the turf five feet in front of intended receivers.
(So that's what you get for 11 years of bloood, sweat, tears and championships with garbage recievers!!!)

Joseph Addai is the starter, but then what for the Colts? We know Addai is the main man for the Colts, but rookie Delone Carter has apparently wowed the staff and has earned some playing time. With the reports that Donald Brown is transitioning into more of a third down, change-of-pace role, Carter has the chance to really make an impact as a deep sleeper because he is the second "runner" on the depth chart. If Addai gets hurt, Carter would likely be the primary runner and goal line back and he is an excellent between the tackles runner. Remember, Javarris James was Fantasy relevant for a stretch last year when he scored six times in six weeks and Carter is much more talented. Make sure Addai stays in at the stripe to secure his value and then pay close attention to what role, if any, Carter appears to have with the starters.
