Matthews won 231 games and 5 Grey Cups during his 22-year career, as well as five more as an assistant coach.

This is no time to panic. That's the consensus opinion of the Baltimore Stallions, as they hope to ignite their sputteringoffense on Saturday, in a rematch with the Memphis Mad Dogs.Baltimore's offense, which turned the ball over a season-high five times in last Saturday's 25-15 loss to Memphis, managed only five Carlos Huerta field goals in that game.In its past three games, the Stallions' offense has produced only one touchdown, and that came on a 3-yard run by running back Mike Pringle, a play set up by a long interception return by halfback Charles Anthony.

IT CAN'T happen in Glen Burnie. Or in Columbia. Or Owings Mills, Annapolis, Severna Park, Westminster - or any other Baltimore-area suburb. It can happen only in Baltimore. Only the city can be the main gravitational force in this metropolis' universe. Only in the city can the area rally around a common purpose that, if successful, everyone can cheer. Two weeks ago, we learned again that the long-neglected city can be the only true star in this solar system, no matter how much business is booming in Howard County or Hunt Valley.

They came out of nowhere - a nameless, patchwork expansion team peopled by rookies, free agents and vagabonds roaming the netherworld between college and pro football. The mix proved magical. In their short, two-year fling in the Canadian Football League, the Baltimore Stallions won a championship - five years ago today. In the process, they captured the hearts of a cadre of fans eager to embrace any form of surrogate Colts. The Stallions also aggravated an entire nation of flannel-wearing, ice-fishing, Mountie-loving denizens vexed by the success of these blue-and-silver upstarts from south of their border.
