Jerry never forgets or forgivesJerry Glanville, the outspoken coach of the Falcons, never has forgiven Bobby Beathard for predicting his demise as the Oilers coach in 1989. That was the year Beathard spent as an NBC-TV commentator before becoming the Chargers general manager.Glanville, who noted earlier this year that the Redskins haven't missed a beat since Beathard left, was bragging last week about the trade that brought Billy Joe Tolliver from San Diego to Atlanta for a fifth-round pick.

ASHBURN, Va. - As former Redskins head coach and defensive coordinator Richie Petitbon has probably said a million times in the 19 years since Darrell Green came to man the cornerback slot in Washington, he didn't think much of Green when he first showed up. Petitbon, who came to Redskin Park yesterday to mark Green's retirement at the end of this season, said he thought Green, at 5 feet 9, was too small to make it in the NFL. In Petitbon's first impression,...

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It was a momentous occasion for Joe Gibbs, as the soft-spoken Southern gentleman was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame yesterday for his coaching deeds with the Washington Redskins -- including the unprecedented feat of winning three Super Bowls with three different quarterbacks.Gibbs led the way in the election to the sport's highest honor. Four former players will join him in the class of 1996: tackle Dan Dierdorf of the St. Louis Cardinals; wide receiver Charlie Joiner, who played with the Houston Oilers, Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers; defensive back Mel Renfro of the Dallas Cowboys; and offensive tackle Lou Creekmur of the Detroit Lions of the 1950s.

MIAMI -- They don't teach the Bobby Beathard management style at the Harvard Business School.To start, there's his name. Not Bob and certainly not Robert. He's celebrating his 58th birthday today and still calls himself Bobby.He runs marathons and often surfs in search of the perfect wave before going to work in the morning. When he arrives, he sometimes is wearing shorts and athletic shoes.Bobby Beathard is not your typical corporate chieftain.Yet the San Diego Chargers general manager can play the boardroom game with the best of them, having won his share of power struggles.

LOS ANGELES -- The All-Pro ballot was completed and turned back in to the Associated Press this week. It required the usual difficult choices.Choose only two wide receivers. That meant spots for Sterling Sharpe of Green Bay and Michael Irvin of Dallas, but left out the eminently worthy Jerry Rice of San Francisco and Haywood Jeffires of Houston.Pick just two outside linebackers. Washington's Wilber Marshall and Philadelphia's Seth Joyner were chosen because their play demands that opponents never lose track of them, but that meant ignoring such talents as New Orleans' Pat Swilling, Kansas City's Derrick Thomas and San Francisco's Tim Harris.

Imminent minds have gathered to study the phenomenon in which AFC teams are unable to beat anything in Super Bowls except hasty retreat.Most recent reversal on Sunday: San Francisco 49, San Diego 26.NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue insists an 11-game winning streak by the NFC is an ordinary cycle.

"Some of the great minds like George Young [Giants general manager] and Bobby Beathard [San Diego Chargers general manager] are still searching."
