AFC EastDan Marino of the Dolphins has beaten the Jets 17 times in 28 career decisions. The Jets may have wasted their money when they gave Steve Atwater a three-year, $8.25 million deal after he was cut by the Broncos. The Broncos were pulling him on passing downs last year because he appeared to lose a step, and now the Jets are doing the same thing. Bruce Smith has gone to four Super Bowls with the Bills, but he says this is their best defense. The return of LB Ted Johnson to the Patriots' lineup has stiffened the defense and helped them hold Emmitt Smith to 75 yards last week.

PHILADELPHIA -- After a month of relative bliss and improbable comebacks, the other shoe dropped on the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday.With jackhammer force, it crushed a four-game winning streak ++ and snuffed out the City of Brotherly Love's brief infatuation with quarterback Bubby Brister.Some things just aren't meant to last.Shortly after Brister trotted onto the Veterans Stadium carpet to rousing cheers -- and well before a 17-6 loss to the Chicago Bears was complete -- the home crowd of 63,601 turned on Randall Cunningham's replacement with a vengeance.

GREELEY, Colo. -- Bubby Brister, the here-and-now quarterback of the Denver Broncos, has been there and then.Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York were way stations on a long, slow train that ultimately pointed west. In a 10-year odyssey that hardly seemed to prepare him for his own Rocky Mountain high, Brister has toiled -- often thanklessly -- for the Steelers, Eagles and Jets.Now, at the advanced football age of 37, three years removed from what appeared to be the end of the line, Brister is living out a fantasy.

Mike Shanahan actually conceded last week that his decisions are wrong on occasion.It was a painful admission for the coach who called the plays for three of the past five Super Bowl winners -- in San Francisco in the 1994 season as the offensive coordinator and in Denver the past two years as head coach -- and seemed to have all the answers.After saying he gets input from the team on his decisions (he wasn't about to take all the blame), he said: "Am I always right? No, I'm not always right.

Mike Holmgren is new to the Seattle Seahawks, but he knows their neighborhood. It is smack in the middle of mediocrity, just south of football nirvana.The Seahawks haven't seen the klieg lights of the postseason since quarterback Dave Krieg and coach Chuck Knox threw the switch in 1988 after a 9-7 regular season. That 10-year playoff drought ranks as the longest in the NFL, but it's nothing new to Holmgren, Seattle's first-year general manager and head coach.When Holmgren reported to Green Bay as a rookie head coach in 1992, the Packers hadn't been to the playoffs in nine years and three coaches.
