MIAMI -- After the Atlanta Falcons routed the New England Patriots, 41-10, on Nov. 8, coach Dan Reeves had a special message for his team. "Dan told us he would do the `Dirty Bird' in downtown Atlanta if we go to the Super Bowl," wide receiver Terance Mathis said. "And that was the first time he ever mentioned Super Bowl to us, and it was the first time he ever talked to us about the Super Bowl. You could feel the electricity in the room, and you know you had a chance to do something special."

Dan Reeves, who appeared in nine Super Bowls as player or coach during a 37-year NFL career, wants to talk to the Dallas Cowboys about the coaching vacancy left by Bill Parcells' retirement. Speaking yesterday from his vacation home at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in north Georgia, Reeves said he phoned the Cowboys on Monday to express interest in the job. Reeves, 63, spent eight seasons with the Cowboys as a running back and six more as an assistant coach. During that time, he participated in five Super Bowls, winning two. He also went to the Super Bowl as head coach with the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons, but lost each time.

SUPER BOWLS are notoriously dull, but this one may have set a new low even before the opening coin flip.The weeks leading to this de facto national holiday often offer some compelling story line: Green Bay's rebirth in 1997 of a once-proud franchise that had fallen on hard times; Denver quarterback John Elway's last gasp at a championship in 1998; the braggadocio of a Broadway Joe Namath in 1969.This evening's game between last year's victor Denver and underrated Atlanta offers no such drama, no morality play.

The bad feelings between Dan Reeves, John Elway and Mike Shanahan have never been very far from the surface. Here's a sampling of their public comments in the last five years:Training camp, 1993, after Reeves was fired as coach of the Broncos and resurfaced with the New York Giants:Elway: "The last three years have been hell. I know that I would not have been back here if Dan Reeves had been here. It wasn't worth it to me. I didn't enjoy it. It wasn't any fun, and I got tired of working with him."

ATLANTA -- Two of the Atlanta Falcons' top offensive players, running back Jamal Anderson and quarterback Chris Chandler, were in for only a quarter before they were removed from last night's 19-6 preseason loss. And that's partly why the Ravens were so dominant.The Ravens also hit Atlanta with a couple of blitzes, and Anderson (three carries, 16 yards) isn't close to game conditioning after being a training camp holdout."It felt pretty good to get out there to run through some plays and get some conditioning," Anderson said.

Deep under the stack of sprawling bodies, a man squeezed a football and thought it was going to remain the property of the Dallas Cowboys. Dave Manders, to his everlasting regret, was soon to learn otherwise.Now, 22 years after the fact, he continues to insist the fumble that granted the Baltimore Colts a goal-line reprieve in Super Bowl V should have been ruled in the possession of the Cowboys.Manders has no reason to invent a story or perpetuate fabrication. This is what he has been saying since late that afternoon, Jan. 17, 1971, when the Colts, smiled on by fate, won their only Super Bowl as Jim O'Brien kicked a 32-yard field goal with time running out for a 16-13 victory.

ASHBURN, Va. - Old school is back in session as Joe Gibbs prepares to take on Bill Parcells on Monday night in a matchup of coaching greats who couldn't have imagined their career paths would lead them to reprise their NFC East rivalry of the 1980s. For fans, it's an early-season treat: a meeting of two 63-year-old men with plenty of shared history and records of achievement, but wildly different styles. Gibbs is the Washington Redskins' offensive tactician with the born-again faith and the unruffled demeanor.

It took Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome two drafts to replenish a Super Bowl roster gutted by salary cap reality and make it playoff-caliber. In places like Miami, Chicago and Arizona, no amount of tinkering can elevate teams to Super Bowl readiness. The Miami Dolphins certainly tried last offseason. They brought in Sammy Knight, Junior Seau, Jeff Zgonina, Terrell Buckley, Derrius Thompson and Brian Griese. The result? The Dolphins missed the playoffs for the second straight year, a drought that probably will cost coach Dave Wannstedt - who has control over personnel decisions - his job this week.

ATLANTA -- This is not Tom Wolfe's Atlanta. The author of the Atlanta-based "A Man in Full" has, to our knowledge, never shaken his coat-tail feathers while performing the Atlanta Falcons' "Dirty Bird" dance.This is not Ted Turner's team. For once, Turner's Braves aren't the talk of Peachtree Street/Circle/Road/Way/Avenue. Greg Maddux who? It's the Falcons' "Bomb Squad" all the way, baby. Chop that.This is Dan Reeves' Atlanta. While mending from quadruple-bypass surgery, the former deposed coach of the Denver Broncos performed the Dirty Bird after his underdog Falcons shocked the Minnesota Vikings, 30-27, to win a trip to Super Bowl XXXIII on Sunday in Miami.

NEW YORK -- The Dan Reeves era began with the new boss talking the talk yesterday. If his New York Giants don't walk the walk, at least they will be toeing the line.And that's more than you can say about his predecessor.Ray Handley left Reeves with an aging defense, an offense without an identity and a locker room that lost its respect for the coach. Reeves feels that the new year presents him with the makings of a championship team and the tools to rebuild one."What I saw in preparation for the Giants last year is that they're not that far away," Reeves said after agreeing to a five-year deal in excess of $4 million.

Mike Shanahan knows how to turn a lemon into lemonade. When Shanahan was fired as offensive coordinator after the 1991 season by Denver Broncos coach Dan Reeves -- the same coach he'll match wits with in Super Bowl XXXIII Sunday -- he turned it into a growth experience.He got a job running the San Francisco 49ers' offense in 1992, and it changed the way he approached practice sessions."I always came from programs where you beat your guys up consistently," he said. "And you wanted the roughness level -- who was the toughest guy on the block?"
