Ravens backup quarterback Tony Banks said he should be able to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Denver Broncos. The injury report, though, lists Banks as doubtful, meaning there is a 25 percent chance he will play. Banks is nursing a sore shoulder suffered in the second half Sunday against the New York Jets. He was able to throw in practice yesterday, and trainer Bill Tessendorf said the team will give Banks more chances to throw the next couple of days, then evaluate his process.

Brian Griese admits that he isn't John Elway. He doesn't have the luxury of throwing to All-Pro tight end Shannon Sharpe. He hasn't had an opportunity to rely on injured running back Terrell Davis. But Griese has the Denver Broncos' offense flying a mile high, putting it on pace to set at least 11 team and individual records, including most total yards in a season, most touchdown passes in a season and most receptions in a season. "He's getting better and better," coach Mike Shanahan said.

DENVER BRONCOS Last season: 6-10, fifth. Coach: Mike Shanahan (61-39), sixth season with Broncos, eighth in NFL. Strength of schedule: tie for 26th. Starting quarterback: Brian Griese (4-9). Best move: Upgrading the defense by signing DE Lester Archambeau and trading for S Billy Jenkins to bring more stability on that side of the ball. The Broncos doled out $5.3 in signing bonuses to add that pair. Missing piece: The loss of perennial Pro Bowl TE Shannon Sharpe will deny the Broncos one of the best third-down producers and red-zone threats in the history of the franchise.

Despite trudging into the sunset more times than John Wayne, Bill Parcells keeps coming back for more. More power, more attention, more wins. Parcells has 149 coaching wins in 15 NFL seasons. His Hall of Fame credentials are impeccable with two Super Bowl victories in three Super Bowl appearances. No question he can coach. That's not what should worry Jerry Jones if he hires Parcells to reinvigorate the Dallas Cowboys. What should worry the Cowboys owner is the infighting and backbiting that inevitably accompany a Parcells regime.

Two teams traveling similar paths are headed on a collision course today at Pro Player Stadium in Miami, where the Ravens will knock helmets with the Miami Dolphins. Both teams are banking on relentless running games and bone-jarring run defenses to win games. Both are asking backup quarterbacks - the Ravens' Anthony Wright and the Dolphins' Brian Griese - not to lose games. And both are standing at 5-4 with a point to prove to the rest of the league. "These are two very physical teams," Ravens coach Brian Billick said.

Money talks and players walk in the NFL. For a variety of reasons, most of them having to do with losing, there could be some surprising names dumped into the available quarterback pool this off-season. At least three quarterbacks who were starters at the beginning of the season appear destined for new ZIP codes in 2003. Two more former golden boys could be gone, as well. Here's the roll call, from most likely to leave to least likely, with career records in parentheses. Kordell Stewart (47-31)

Who knew Marc Bulger was a hero-in-waiting? Or that Chad Pennington was ready to ace his first test in the NFL? Or that Tommy Maddox was able at last to cash in on his misspent potential? Backups all until October, those three quarterbacks offer the latest primer in how fickle NFL fate can be. Bulger, an obscure sixth-round draft pick in 2000, served up a controversy in St. Louis by leading the Rams back from oblivion. Pennington and Maddox, a pair of former first-round picks, sparked revivals for the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers with unexpected proficiency.

The St. Louis Rams lost because coach Mike Martz was too greedy. The Philadelphia Eagles lost because coach Andy Reid was too conservative. Which goes to prove once again there are any number of ways to lose on any given Sunday. Martz wanted a go-ahead touchdown instead of a tying field goal at Denver this week, got neither and suffered an unsightly 23-16 loss to the Broncos. Reid wanted to eat up the clock with a running game he really doesn't have after building a 14-point lead at Tennessee and swallowed a prickly 27-24 loss to the Titans.
