MIAMI -- Don't tell Chris Chandler that he's the best quarterback in Super Bowl XXXIII."That amuses me," the Atlanta Falcons quarterback said when it was suggested his team has the edge at quarterback against the Denver Broncos. "I've been playing really well, but to say I'm the better QB, well, I find that kind of funny."It might be no laughing matter on Sunday at Pro Player Stadium.The strange thing is that with Denver's John Elway, 38, nearing the end of his career -- this might be Elway's last game -- Chandler, 33, may be better right now than Elway is. He had a better quarterback rating than Elway the last two years and put up better numbers in both playoff games this season.

Dick Jauron's decision to turn over the Chicago Bears' quarterback job today to veteran Chris Chandler - and not first-round draft pick Rex Grossman - was telling on two counts. First, it says the Bears coach believes Chandler, who's 38 and immobile, gives his team the best chance to beat the Seattle Seahawks, ahead of gimpy Kordell Stewart and the rookie Grossman. Second, it says Jauron can't worry about the Bears' long-term future when his own in Chicago doesn't stretch past December.

Going out on a limbIt wasn't difficult for John Robinson, the coach of the Los Angeles Rams, to handicap his team's game against the San Francisco 49ers today. The Rams are 27th in total defense and the 49ers are first in total offense. The Rams have allowed 282 points and the 49ers have scored 253 points.Robinson said, "I think the 49ers will be favored in this one."Do you believe this story?Mike Holovak, the general manager of the Houston Oilers, is sporting an ugly black eye. He says he fell while jogging in Cleveland last week.

He had the shot at pulling off the biggest upset of the season.

Eight NFL teams changed starting quarterbacks since the end of last season, but how many can truly say they've bettered themselves at the position? Only a select few. Drew Bledsoe for Rob Johnson is an improvement in Buffalo. Gus Frerotte for Jon Kitna is a positive step in Cincinnati. Trent Dilfer for Matt Hasselbeck was an upgrade in Seattle until Dilfer hurt his knee in the Seahawks' first preseason game and threw the opening-day job back to Hasselbeck. The other changes were due to a commitment to the future (Michael Vick in Atlanta, Drew Brees in San Diego)

Chris Chandler has been down this pockmarked road before. He knows the view, where it leads and how it ends. Chandler was the quarterback who preceded No. 1 pick Jeff George in Indianapolis. He was the quarterback who co-existed with No. 1 pick Vinny Testaverde briefly in Tampa Bay. He was the quarterback who arrived in Houston the same year the Oilers made Steve McNair the third pick in the draft. Those three scenarios ended with Chandler's being traded twice and cut once. Now, in his 14th NFL season and his sixth team, Chandler is the quarterback starting ahead of Michael Vick, this year's No. 1 draft pick, on the Atlanta Falcons.

Chris Weinke pulled off the big upset and LaDainian Tomlinson delivered the biggest rout, but opening day was no overnight success story for the rest of the Class of 2001. Quarterback Michael Vick, the top pick in this year's draft, went 0-for-4 in two series for the Atlanta Falcons in an overtime loss to San Francisco. David Terrell, the first receiver taken and eighth player overall, had just two catches worth 9 yards in the Chicago Bears' punchless loss to the Ravens. And Deuce McAllister, the second running back taken behind Tomlinson, generated just 25 all-purpose yards in the New Orleans Saints' demolition of Buffalo.

Atlanta Falcons Last season: 5-11, third. Coach: Dan Reeves (167-128-1), fourth season with Falcons, 20th in NFL. Strength of schedule: tie for 22nd. Starting quarterback: Chris Chandler (52-58). Best move: WR Shawn Jefferson may be overpaid at $14.2 million over five years, but the Falcons badly needed someone to stretch opposing defenses and take some pressure off of Jamal Anderson. Missing piece: The vacancy at DE is alarming. Lester Archambeau and Chuck Smith, the most underrated tandem in the NFL, have gone to Denver and Carolina.

Atlanta (0-4) at New Orleans (1-2)Time: 1 p.m.Line: Saints by 4.Vs. spread: Falcons 1-3; Saints 2-1.Last week: Falcons lost to Ravens, 19-13, in OT. Saints lost to Bears, 14-10.Series: Falcons lead 35-24.Last meeting: Falcons won, 27-17, on Dec. 13, 1998, at New Orleans.Outlook: Falcons coach Dan Reeves and Saints coach Mike Ditka are close friends, so they will likely commiserate about what has been an awful season, especially for the Falcons. Reeves is paying for what was a terrible mistake this off-season in not getting a qualified backup quarterback for the injury-prone Chris Chandler, who won't start again this week because of a hamstring injury.

David Klingler, the University of Houston quarterback, has become the hot player as the draft gets within five days. And the place to go to guarantee getting Klingler is the Washington Redskins' spot at No. 6.The hot rumor flying around draft rooms yesterday had the Super Bowl champs taking Klingler themselves. Don't count on it. The Skins instead seem intent on trading that pick for veteran defensive help and are trying to create a market and then an auction for Klingler, by far the best quarterback in another down year for quarterbacks.

The call went out for backup quarterbacks in the first week of the NFL season. Rick Mirer answered in the Meadowlands and the New York Jets lost. Eric Zeier answered at Tampa Bay and couldn't rescue the Buccaneers.Jeff Garcia and Tony Graziani were placed in impossible predica- Chandler ments by the San Francisco 49ers and the Atlanta Falcons, and delivered no miracles.This is today's NFL, where the shortage of competent quarterbacks figures to deny several teams the chance to compete for the 2000 Super Bowl, the Jets and Bucs among them.

MIAMI -- Two for the road? Or time to three-peat?John Elway answered every question but one last night when the Denver Broncos dominated the Atlanta Falcons for a 34-19 victory in Super Bowl XXXIII.Throwing for 336 yards, the third-highest total in Super Bowl history, Elway won the Most Valuable Player trophy in what could serve as a fitting farewell to his 16-year, Hall of Fame career.The only issue left after the Broncos (17-2) became the first AFC team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since Pittsburgh in 1978-79, was Elway's retirement plans.
