He certainly has a real legit shot.

Mark "Sanchise" was making a case early I guess, but they have since fallen pretty hard.
Sanchez has fallen flat on his face for almost 4 straight weeks now.
Good. Never liked that guy. I don't like USC. Razz
Whether you like USC or not, they are a pro-football player factory... especially for QB's.
This is true. But I'm not really fans of Leinart, or Cassel either. I guess I'm okay with Palmer. Razz

Outside of Polomalu though, there really isn't another USC player that I am technically a fan of.

Current NFL players I like from USC... In no particular order...

Junior Seau - New England Patriots
Steve Smith - New York Giants
Troy Polamalu - Pittsburgh Steelers
Carson Palmer - Cincinnati Bengals

Player who had a great career but is clearly winding down is Willie McGinest currently with the Browns.

Sedrick Ellis is also starting to develop pretty well with the Saints.
Brian Cushing is also showing some promis with the Texans
Also, give Clay Mathews a couple more years with the Packers and he'll unfortunately make a name for himself as well.

From the Washington Post...

Honoring his mother, and alma mater
Immigrant uses NFL success to give $2 million to U-Md. for health initiatives center

By Daniel de Vise
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, November 5, 2009

At 9, Madieu Williams immigrated to Prince George's County from Sierra Leone, one of the poorest nations on Earth. The move gave his family a sense of perspective. His mother told him over and over that if he ever found himself in a position to make a difference, he should do it.

At 28, Williams finds himself in a relatively prosperous position: He plays free safety for the Minnesota Vikings. And Wednesday, he made a difference.

In a morning news conference, the University of Maryland announced the creation of the Madieu Williams Center for Global Health Initiatives. The former U-Md. star is providing a $2 million endowment. It is the largest gift to the flagship school from an African American alumnus and the largest sum donated by someone so young.

"I realized a vision of what my mom would have liked to do," said Williams, whose mother, Abigail Burscher, died four years ago. "She would have liked this."

Williams doesn't remember the poverty in Sierra Leone, where, according to World Bank statistics, 27 of every 100 children die by age 5.

But he remembers the standard for compassion set by his mother, a nurse, who raised him as a single parent. And he remembers his experience working with sick, sometimes terminally ill, children as a college intern in the recreation therapy section of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda.

"I think she was raising my social consciousness," he said.

Williams grew up in Lanham and attended DuVal High School and Towson University before transferring to Maryland. He graduated in 2003 with a degree in family science and went off to play pro football.

He proved uncommonly talented in the role of free safety, a versatile defensive position that calls for running after very fast men who are trying to catch the football and score touchdowns. Williams is in his sixth season, his second with the Vikings.

His gift comes amid a seven-year, $1 billion capital campaign at U-Md., at a time when research universities are relying more on private support to replace lost revenue from their states. The school is more than halfway to its goal.

The concept for the global health center "really began with Madieu himself," said Robert Gold, dean of the School of Public Health. Williams had considered setting up a scholarship fund but decided on something more ambitious.

The center, conceived over the past 18 months, will focus on public health initiatives in the disparate locales of Prince George's and Sierra Leone, two places close to his heart.

Despite its concentration of black wealth, Prince George's also has the second-highest rate of AIDS in Maryland, after Baltimore, and 151,000 residents who lack health coverage, according to a county report this year.

The center will be a partnership among the Madieu Williams Foundation, the university, the county and the Sierra Leone Embassy.

Sierra Leone Ambassador H.E Bockari Stevens attended the campus ceremony. He praised Williams for "trying to rebrand the image of our country," which endured a decade of civil war and is "still on the bottom of the ladder" in public health. And he praised the young immigrant for remembering his homeland.

"Many people tend to forget where they came from," Stevens said.

From the Strib...

Vikings gain more breathing room during bye

Last update: November 8, 2009 - 4:01 PM

The Vikings will conclude their bye week and return to work on Monday with even an even larger lead in the NFC North.

The Vikings entered the bye with a 7-1 record and gained more separation after both the Bears and the Packers dropped to 4-4 with embarrassing performances on Sunday.

The Bears trailed the Arizona Cardinals 31-7 at halftime at home before losing 41-21.

The Packers became the first team to lose to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a 38-28 loss.

While there will be much hand-wringing and anger in those markets this week, the Vikings will get back to work on Monday with a noon practice. They now have a comfortable three-game lead in the division with three consecutive home games against Detroit, Seattle and Chicago.

If the Vikings lead in the division didn't already seem insurmountable going into the bye, it certainly does now with the Bears and Packers losing on Sunday and their favorable schedule coming out of the bye.

No doubt this team is better now than it was before he took over at least. Whether you like the guy or not, you have to admit and respect that.

So funny how ESPN and the NFL world is talking about our receivers. Did they forgot about our running game, our offensive line and quarterback?

Well, they've talked about our RB and offensive line for YEARS, and they always talk about our QB, no matter what they are saying about the Vikes... you know how the media loved Favre. It's nice to hear the WR's (At least the two that have earned it - Berrian still sucks!) for a change!

Looks like Favre made a stop at Staples before the game and picked up one of these.

Since when to they go out and actually beat teams that they're supposed to beat soundly? Seems to me that this is the first time in awhile that you can feel comfortable that they will win these types of games.
