Drug Abuse Resistance Education, better known as D.A.R.E. or DARE, is an international education program that seeks to prevent use of illegal drugs, membership in gangs, and violent behavior. D.A.R.E., which has expanded globally since its founding in 1983, is a demand-side drug control strategy of the U.S. War on Drugs. Students who enter the program sign a pledge not to use drugs or join gangs and are taught by local law enforcement about the dangers of drug use in an interactive in-school curriculum which lasts ten weeks.

at the end there is a graduation

High School Career

Kittner led Schaumburg High School to a bout in the Illinois Class 6A championship against Naperville Central High School. Schaumburg lost the game by a score of 56-31, but that isn't where Kittner's true lore was born. One day standing atop the steps of Schaumburg High School Kittner sat during a passing period as he spotted the car of the dreaded "Stealth Man". Kittner was no fool to Stealth's douchbagery and promptly made the best of the opprotunity that was presenting itself. After cooling taking a sip of his large soda from Taco Bell Kittner readied himself for the most improbable pass of his life. As Stealth Man tore through the parking lot at an estimated 47.3 mph Kittner took the now epic pose of the cup in his left hand and a pointing in the direct path of the speeding car. Leading the car pefectly Kittner blasted his Mountain Dew towards the oncoming villian (who by the way was speeding towards a line of newborns which were both concieved and born on site of this epic battle). The pop was a smashed promptly on the hood of Stealth Man's car causing the car to veer out of control and back on to Schaumburg Road and cleared a path that is now Braintree Lane. Thusly, pushing Kittner a step closer to becoming a God amongst boys.

DARE is popular and well-funded, at least in the United States. However, numerous scientific studies of the program report that D.A.R.E. does not actually decrease drug use among graduates. Some studies have even indicated that there is an increased rate of drug use among D.A.R.E. graduates. In 2001, the Surgeon General of the United States placed the D.A.R.E. program in the category of "Does Not Work"

So, obv., Flutie.

Two notes about that Browns/Bears clip above:

1) on the Browns first touchdown from the one, every one of the Bears d-linemen stands up at the snap, which is terrible technique. If you did that nowadays, you'd be cut at halftime.

"He was also one of many Florida State QBs that put up huge numbers in college and not do squat in the pros."

Soon to add Jameis Winston to this list!

Charlie Ward was the best pro Florida State QB ever and he played for the KNICKS!

I think it is a perfectly logical move for the Bears to go to Claussen. Bears get a shot to see if Claussen has picked up anything sitting in the wings as a backup and it puts it out that Cutler might not be the starter. I can't see the McCaskey's eating that contract, that would be very unlike them as they are notoriously tight with their cash. You make Cutler sit it out and then make him win the job next year in training camp with a new coach.

Kordell Stewart, the former Pittsburgh Steeler and ex-husband of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” member Porsha Williams, is leaving 92.9/The Game after 19 months at the station.

He said goodbye on today’s show and took calls from fans. I did not hear why he’s leaving but will update this as I get more information. Was it voluntary or involuntary? Does he have a plan B?

Terry Foxx, the program director, declined to comment about where Stewart is going. He said there will be new staffing announcements on Tuesday. Foxx on air said Stewart will keep a relationship with the Game and clearly this is an amicable break up because Foxx actually allowed Stewart to make the announcement on air.

It was sad to see Peter Tom Willis forced out as a radio analyst for Florida State football games. It was sadder still to see honesty forced out with him.

Willis, a former FSU quarterback who had been in the booth for 10 years, was told this month that his contract would not be renewed because the administration felt he was too critical.

So now, I suppose, the Seminoles are free to hire a softer radio voice.

And all it cost them was their integrity.

My goodness, this was wrong. Too wrong to be ignored.

How does an institution of higher learning send the message that offering honest and well-informed criticism is a firing offense? How does a fan base accept this with so little complaint?

Isn't a college campus a place where independent thinking is encouraged? A place where the quest for knowledge and understanding is supposed to be a good thing?

Willis' sin was that he did his job too well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caleb_Hanie

2011 season

After a back and forth preseason, Hanie won a battle with Nate Enderle for the second position on the depth chart. Against the San Diego Chargers in week 11, starting quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a broken thumb on his throwing hand. The following day, the Bears reported that Cutler would need to have surgery on the thumb, possibly ending his season. Hanie was named the starter for the Bears until Cutler's return.

On November 27, 2011 Hanie started his first NFL game against the Oakland Raiders. He threw two touchdowns and three interceptions in the 25-20 loss, snapping the Bears' 5-game winning streak. In that game with 8 seconds left, looking to spike the ball, Hanie stepped backwards, as if attempting a pass, and then spiked the ball. He was charged with intentional grounding and was forced to runoff the clock 10 more seconds, preserving a Raiders win. The following week, Hanie threw three interceptions in a 10-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Baltimore Ravens

Hanie signed a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens on April 16, 2013 as competition for Tyrod Taylor for the backup quarterback position. He was released on August 30, 2013.
Cleveland Browns

Hanie was signed by the Cleveland Browns on December 3, 2013.[8] Hanie was waived on December 10.[9]
Dallas Cowboys

Hanie was signed to a one year deal by the Dallas Cowboys on April 23, 2014. Hanie was released by the team on August 26, 2014. [10]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Todd_Collins_%28quarterback%29

Collins was signed by the Chicago Bears to a one-year deal for the 2010 season. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.[8] Collins made the roster as the second-string quarterback after Jay Cutler and ahead of Caleb Hanie. Collins played for the Bears in the fourth game of the season, beginning the second half of the Week 4 matchup against the New York Giants when starter Jay Cutler suffered a concussion in the first half. Collins finished that game 4 for 11 for 36 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. The Bears lost 17–3, their first loss of the season, falling to 3–1. He would fill in for Cutler in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers. In that start, Collins completed six of 16 passes for 32 yards, threw four interceptions and had a passer rating of 6.2. He was relieved at the end of the third quarter by Caleb Hanie. The Bears won 23–6.[9] Collins also saw limited action in the Bears' 21–14 NFC Championship game loss to the Packers, relieving the injured Cutler in the third quarter before being replaced by Hanie after suffering a shoulder injury. This was the final game of his career.

It's a story as old as youth sports itself. One kid gets his block knocked off, the dad of the victim intervenes, the dad of the perpetrator takes an issue with the other dad's tone, and a "fracas" is born.

Such is the scene painted by a 10TV report that left one Dublin-area dad wanting former national title-winning Ohio State quarterback Craig Krenzel put behind bars.

Bruce Wolfe's eight year-old son was involved in an "aggressive block" on Craig Krenzel's son that left lil' Krenzel without his helmet.

Wolfe alleges that Krenzel, an assistant coach on his son's team, ran over to to separate the two boys. Wolfe alleges Krenzel "grabbed [Wolfe's son] by the shoulder pads and yelled at him."

Wolfe was so perturbed by Krenzel's actions, he filed a police report in which he requested assault charges be brought up against the former Ohio State quarterback.

No charges, however, have been filed against Krenzel.

Campbell signed with the Chicago Bears on March 13, 2012 to a one-year contract as a backup to Jay Cutler.[16] In Week 10 against the Houston Texans, Campbell replaced Cutler, who had gone down with a concussion.[17] In the game, Campbell completed 11 of 19 passes for 94 yards and a 70.9 passer rating.[18] On November 16, Cutler was ruled out of the Bears-San Francisco 49ers game, meaning Campbell would start the game.[19] The Bears went on to lose 32-7.[

As the younger brother of two former Division I quarterbacks—Casey and Rick Clausen, who both played at Tennessee—Jimmy Clausen gained media attention very early. Beginning in eighth grade, his parents paid his tutelage under professional quarterbacks coach Steve Clarkson.[6] During his junior season, a Sports Illustrated feature dubbed him “The Kid with The Golden Arm”.[7] Recruiting analysts considered him a “once in a decade” quarterback talent and ranked him as the #1 overall prospect of the 2007 high school class.[8] Because of his quick release, some in the media compared him to Joe Namath.

On April 22, 2006, Clausen verbally committed to the University of Notre Dame.[12] He was the most highly touted recruit for the Fighting Irish since the arrival of Ron Powlus in 1993.[13] Clausen announced his oral commitment at the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Indiana, after arriving in a stretch Hummer limousine. He also said his goal was to win multiple national titles with the Irish.

On July 28, 2010, Clausen signed a four-year, $4.2 million contract with the Panthers, which includes $2.53 million in guarantees.[36] Clausen made his NFL debut in a loss against the New York Giants in the 2010 season opener, after starting quarterback Matt Moore was sidelined with a concussion.[37] After poor play by Matt Moore in a week 2 matchup against the Buccaneers, Clausen took over late in the game. He completed 7 of 13 passes for 59 yards and an interception and one fumbled snap, and led a 17-play drive that was stopped inside the 5-yard line.[38] The following week, Clausen started his first NFL game against the Bengals, completing 16 of 33 passes for 188 yards and an interception and three fumbled snaps, losing two.[38] During the game TV cameras caught wide receiver Steve Smith walking over to Clausen, who was talking with an assistant coach, and screaming at the rookie. Smith walked away, but returned and said something else before being escorted away by tight end Jeff King. At that point, Smith threw down a cup of Gatorade.

A March 26 pet-adoption charity event at a Chicago Bloomingdale’s attempted to auction off a football signed by Jay Cutler. The starting bid was $100. No one placed any bids. No one. Zero.

Fortunately for the Anti-Cruelty Society, an anonymous man bought the football for $100 Thursday, saying he planned to give it to his son. He presumably stayed anonymous because he didn’t want his friends knowing that he bought a football autographed by Jay Cutler.

A book about former Illinois men’s basketball coach Bruce Weber was auctioned off for a reported $120.

I still root that somehow Cutler will get a last laugh.

McCown was rated the sixth best quarterback in the 2002 NFL Draft by NFLDraftScout.com.[35] He was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round of the 2002 NFL Draft, with the 81st overall pick, and was the fourth quarterback selected.[38] Dave McGinnis, the head coach of the Cardinals when McCown was drafted, later stated that McCown "had all the background essentials you really liked. And he's a fabulous athlete. If you were going to start a pickup basketball game in the building, he'd be one of your first choices."[39]

On April 30, 2016, Hoyer agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the Chicago Bears.[25] After an injury to starting quarterback Jay Cutler in Week 2, Hoyer started the Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys and threw for 317 yards and two touchdowns in a 31–17 loss.[26] The following week, Hoyer threw two touchdowns for 302 yards in a 17–14 victory over the Detroit Lions.[27] A week later in a 29–23 loss to the Colts, he threw for a career-high 397 yards, the most by a Bears quarterback since Jim Miller threw for 422 yards in 1999 and the fifth-most in Bears history. Hoyer also joined Josh McCown as the only Bears quarterbacks to throw for at least 300 yards in three straight games[28] and later became the first to do so in four consecutive games after throwing for 302 yards in a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.[29] Hoyer broke his left arm during the second quarter of a game against the Green Bay Packers on October 20, 2016.[30] He was placed on injured reserve on October 24, 2016 after having surgery on his left arm, and was reported to be out at least eight weeks.

2014 season[edit]
New head coach Lovie Smith quickly announced that newly signed journeyman Josh McCown would be the starting quarterback for the upcoming 2014 season, leaving Glennon's future in Tampa Bay in question. On May 10, Smith stated while McCown would be the starter, Glennon was the Bucs' "quarterback of the future". That same day, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported that the Bucs turned down at least six trade offers for Glennon during the 2014 NFL Draft.[7]

Glennon made his 2014 season debut Week 3 on Thursday Night Football against the Atlanta Falcons. Glennon entered the game near the end of the first half, after McCown suffered a thumb injury. At the time of Glennon's entry into the game, the Bucs already trailed 35–0. Glennon completed 17 of 24 passes for 121 yards, 1 touchdown, and no interceptions. The Bucs lost the game 56–14.

With McCown unable to play due to his injury, Glennon started the next five games for the Bucs. The team lost all five games, and Smith then announced that McCown would reclaim the starting quarterback job for Week 10.

The Bucs finished the season a league worst 2–14, and 1–4 with Glennon as the quarterback. Glennon finished his second season campaign with an 83.3 passer rating. He completed 57.6 percent of his passes (117 of 203) for 1,417 passing yards, and threw 10 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.

2015 season[edit]
Glennon did not see any playing time during the 2015 season. He was the backup to the number one overall pick Jameis Winston.

2016 season[edit]
Glennon was the backup to Winston in 2016. After Winston suffered a knee injury midway through the fourth quarter of the Week 9 game against the Atlanta Falcons, Glennon entered and completed 10 of 11 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown.[8] Glennon also appeared in the Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears but did not record any statistics.[9]

Chicago Bears[edit]
On March 9, 2017, Glennon signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Chicago Bears.[10]
