ATLANTA -- Buffalo Bills defensive end Bruce Smith is tough on quarterbacks and in commercials. He picked up two endorsements this season, one for a potato chip company and another for shoes.In the potato chip commercial, Smith stuffs a handful of chips in his mouth after he is dared to eat just one. What you don't see is Smith spitting them out. He liked the taste, he said, but not the fat content.Smith doesn't appear in the shoe commercial -- only his shoe. In that one, Dennis Hopper pulls Smith's shoe out of his locker and sniffs it."

TAMPA, Fla. -- Lawrence Taylor sounded like a man ready to pass the torch to a younger, stronger man yesterday.In another four days, we'll see if Bruce Smith accepts it . . . or drops it.Taylor, the NFL's most dominating defensive player for the last decade, conceded the obvious as Super Bowl XXV hysteria officially got under way at Tampa Stadium. The New York Giants' perennial All-Pro linebacker doesn't get to the quarterback as quickly or as often as he once did. And he doesn't make as many gigantic plays as he used to.But yesterday, speaking with pride about a fabled career, L.T. called himself the Mercedes of linebackers and suggested that he was, at the age of 31, still better than the vast majority of players at his position.

Buffalo Bills defensive end Bruce Smith sees it this way: If Los Angeles Raiders running back Bo Jackson (hip injury) doesn't play tomorrow, that means the Raiders probably will throw more. And if they do, Smith likes his chances of getting sacks and disrupting the Los Angeles offense."There's no question that Bo has a lot of impact on their offense and what they do," said Smith, voted the National Football League's best defensive player this season. "My main job is to get to the ball, but I like it most when it's the quarterback who has it."
