    (ROOTERS) PORTLAND, ME -- Researchers at the University of Maine have announced a new, very rare neurological disorder that they have tentatively named "uniform agnosia."

    Agnosia is a neurological condition in which one is unable to recognize visual stimuli. One form, prosopagnosia, results in the inability to recognize faces. This newest form of agnosia, according to researchers, results in the inability of a quarterback to distinguish between uniforms, so that all uniforms look alike.

    While the exact cause for the disorder remains known, the researchers studying the disorder are certain that there must be some sort of problem involving the neurons in the visual cortex.

    This weekend, researchers confirmed what they considered to be the second case of uniform agnosia: Peyton Manning. "When Manning threw two picks to Law, we had our proof. There were no receivers anywhere near Law, so the only logical explanation is uniform agnosia," said Dr. Pat Snutme. "Well, that, or Manning just stinks in the playoffs."

    The first case of uniform agnosia, according to Dr. Snutme, is Brett Favre, whose condition helped him lead the league with 29 interceptions in 2005.

    Docs knew Manning had this disorder once they checked a vein and it Bledsoe.

    It's unfortunate. This disease has caused a once proud Favre to become nothing more than a like-able Jake Plummer.

    Funny, but the University of Maine is in Orono- nowhere near Portland.

    I think that Dr. is from Homerville.:rocker: He/she has been in the vangard of finding cures for choking diseases.
