MIAMI -- San Francisco 49ers cornerback Deion Sanders is lobbying for a chance to play more than defense in the Super Bowl.Sanders put his arm around coach George Seifert at one point during San Francisco's practice yesterday and the two talked for a few minutes. It ended with Seifert laughing."If he puts his arm around me, you know exactly what he's asking for -- offensive playing time," Seifert said. "Hopefully, we'll be in a position [Sunday] to do it."That's an indication that Seifert may not want to risk Sanders as a kick returner unless the 49ers have the game in hand.

It's reunion weekend in the NFL. Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Mora goes back to the town where he capped a marvelous, 10-year run with a classic flameout in New Orleans. Carolina Panthers coach George Seifert, who guided San Francisco to a pair of Super Bowl titles, faces the 49ers in Charlotte amid reports he'll quit at season's end. Jerry Angelo, Chicago's first-year general manager, will try to deliver a knockout punch to the team he helped build when the upstart Bears visit Tampa Bay. Vince Tobin, who took the Arizona Cardinals to the playoffs three years ago, goes back to Tempe as defensive coordinator of the winless Detroit Lions.

San Francisco 49ers safety Ronnie Lott may need surgery on one of his sprained knees, according to coach George Seifert."It's up in the air right now," Seifert said. "I would say it's week to week as to what's going to take place."Lott sprained both knees in the Dec. 3 game against the New York Giants, hurting the left more seriously than the right. He did not play against the Cincinnati Bengals and was listed as doubtful Thursday for Monday's game against the Los Angeles Rams.He had a Magnetic Resonance Imaging test this week to find out the extent of the damage.

Any time you've been somewhere and you come back, it's a weird feeling because you've got a lot of friends there, players you spent a lot of time with.

JOHN EISENBERGThe Chargers can maybe control the ball a little and make a big play or two. That's it, and that's not nearly enough. Their defense can't come close to stopping the 49ers. I wish I could figure out a way to call it a close game, but it's one of the worst mismatches in Super Bowl history. Rent a video to watch during the second half.( * 49ers 45, Chargers 20.VITO STELLINOIf the 49ers don't get tired marching up and down the field, they should have this one wrapped up in time so you can switch to a rerun of the "60 Minutes" 25th anniversary show.

Joe Gibbs said he isn't worried about spies in the trees at chilly Redskin Park this week.After hearing that coach George Seifert of the San Francisco 49ers closed practice to the media and said somebody was watching practice in a eucalyptus tree before being chased away, the Washington Redskins coach said jokingly: "I take an oath on that one. I had nothing to do with the eucalyptus tree."After Seifert described himself as a "paranoid coach," Gibbs said: "I think we're all paranoid. Hey, if I had a eucalyptus tree and found somebody up it, I'd probably be paranoid.

When Jerry Jones chose Chan Gailey to coach the Dallas Cowboys last February, it concluded one of the most exhaustive coaching searches in recent NFL history.Gailey, offensive coordinator with the Pittsburgh Steelers at the time, came out of the shadows to win the job in the 11th hour of a 34-day process. Still, he was the choice only after former UCLA coach Terry Donahue balked at accepting one of the league's lowest salaries.Among the candidates left in Gailey's wake were former San Francisco 49ers coach George Seifert, a two-time Super Bowl winner, and Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Sherm Lewis.

Party etiquetteSan Francisco coach George Seifert had several choice words for running backs William Floyd and Ricky Watters after the two celebrated the 49ers' first touchdown with a bit that included mixing it up with Lions fans in the north end zone. The score cut Detroit's lead to 14-7."There's a time and a place to celebrate," Seifert said. "They're both very emotional players, but there's a line. . . . They need to be in emotional harmony with the rest of the team."Floyd, who scored his first NFL touchdown on the play, said his excitement overwhelmed him and added: "I wasn't taunting the fans.
