ASHBURN, Va. -- Often second-guessed for a lack of imagination and success on draft day, Washington Redskins general manager Charley Casserly went on a first-round trading binge yesterday that left him with the marquee player he wanted, three first-round draft picks next season and a net gain of three draft selections.Casserly silenced his critics at least temporarily by bringing in an immediate-impact player in triple-threat Georgia cornerback Champ Bailey and building for the future with the three first-round choices and the three lower-round picks gained.

When Darrell "Superman" Green sobbed on the sideline during a 41-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings six weeks ago, the Redskins organization and everybody close to the team probably wanted to cry with him.Green's tears were symbolic of how far once-proud Washington had fallen this season. Superman Green's spirit and strength had been broken by another humiliating setback, which dropped Washington to an 0-7 record.But there were nine more games to play, and the All-Pro cornerback had to somehow regain his status of caped crusader and fly again for the good of the franchise.

Darrell Green is still the cornerstone of the Washington Redskins. The cornerback for all ages says he'll be playing in the Pro Bowl in the year 2000, and few are willing to bet against him even though Green will be 40 by then.However, Washington's other starting cornerback, Cris Dishman, is stirring up defensive excitement after playing just four regular-season games.Dishman is a hot item around Washington (3-1) as the team prepares to meet the Philadelphia Eagles (1-3) 1 p.m. today at Veterans Stadium.

There are many reasons not to get excited about the Washington Redskins' defense, even though it is ranked fourth in the NFL and has allowed just 12.3 points a game.The most important reason is simple -- no one has really tested veteran cornerback Darrell Green and company. The Carolina Panthers didn't throw much with backup Steve Beuerlein, the Arizona Cardinals struggled under Kent Graham, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are still getting used to Kordell Stewart running the show.Also, three games is too early to judge new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan's simplified defense.

MIAMI -- Miami's Sammie Smith coughed up the ball on a first-and-goal dive play at the 1-yard line yesterday, and Houston's Cris Dishman recovered in the end zone with 3 minutes, 10 seconds left to clinch a 17-13 victory.Smith's fumble was his second at the goal line in as many weeks. The earlier bobble sparked a 42-7 Kansas City rout as Chris Martin returned it 100 yards for a touchdown."It was the same play they fumbled on in Kansas City," Houston coach Jack Pardee said. "We were hoping for a repeat."
