MINNEAPOLIS -- It's not so much that Darrell Green, at 31, is older. It's that he is faster.The Redskins cornerback won the NFL's Fastest Man title for the third time last spring. Experience counts for something, but it's Green's speed that makes him arguably the league's best cornerback.And the way he figures it, he'll be in Canton, Ohio, someday."The great receivers of the league are going to send me to the Hall of Fame," Green said this week. "I'll be there on my own, or I'll be on their [highlight]

Three months after winning their first Super Bowl in 1983, the Washington Redskins received another reward. With the 28th and final selection in the first round of the 1983 NFL draft, and one pick after the Miami Dolphins grabbed a strong-armed quarterback from Pittsburgh named Dan Marino, the Redskins settled on an undersized but lightning-quick cornerback out of Texas A&M-Kingsville. Darrell Green played 20 seasons with the Redskins, earned two Super Bowl rings, appeared in seven Pro Bowls and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008.

LANDOVER -- Brian Mitchell, Darrell Green and Leslie Shepherd never stopped promising better days for the Washington Redskins, even in the darkest of times during an 0-7 start this season.Yesterday, those three veteran stars joined with quarterback Trent Green to lead Washington to its first fourth-quarter comeback victory in Norv Turner's five-year tenure as coach.Trent Green produced the 24-20 win over the San Diego Chargers with a perfectly orchestrated, 20-yard touchdown pass Shepherd, who caught the ball in full stride in the right corner of the end zone with 1 minute, 54 seconds left in the game before 65,713 at Jack Kent Cooke Stadium.

Linebacker Monte Coleman signed a one-year, $400,000 deal yesterday to play his 16th season for the Washington Redskins, which will tie him with Hall of Famer Sammy Baugh for the longest tenure with the team.Coleman, 36, showed no signs of slowing down last year, when he tied for the team lead in sacks with six. He has 56 career sacks, tied with Diron Talbert for fourth on the Redskins' all-time list behind Dexter Manley, Charles Mann and Dave Butz, all defensive linemen.Coleman's sack total last year was the second most in his career.

Record: 3-2Last game: Lost, 24-10, Sunday at Philadelphia Eagles.Highlights: Midway through the third quarter, Michael Westbrook went airborne and extended fully to catch a pass from Gus Frerotte for a 38-yard completion to the Philadelphia 5-yard line. On the next play, Frerotte threw a touchdown pass to Terry Allen to cut the Eagles' lead to 17-10. But in general the passing game was ineffective. Brian Mitchell returned the second-half kickoff 47 yards to the Philadelphia 48, but the Redskins wound up punting.

WASHINGTON -- Maybe coach Jimmy Johnson is still too new to the NFL to understand a basic axiom.The third-year coach of the Dallas Cowboys doesn't seem to understand that teams rarely try to challenge Darrell Green, the league's fastest man."Darrell's a great player," Johnson said of the Washington cornerback. "[But] if you stay completely away from him, we'd play into their hands. We've got to go to our strengths even if it is against a great player," Johnson said.Johnson also noted that if you always throw away from Green, you've always throwing into double coverage.

Analysis: On paper, this is a mismatch in the Bills' favor. Lofton is a veteran receiver who can still go deep and made the Pro Bowl for the eighth time this year. Mayhew is a former Plan B free agent who was signed by the Redskins three years ago when the Bills didn't protect him. Mayhew doesn't have great speed and you'd think the Bills would be able to isolate Lofton on Mayhew and enable Lofton to have a big day. Easier said than done. Teams have been trying to do that all season since Mayhew was burned repeatedly in the exhibition season.

Washington (6-4) at St. Louis (8-2) Time: 9 tonight, chs. 2, 7. Line: Rams by 6. Vs. spread: Redskins 4-5; Rams 4-5. Series: Redskins lead 17-6-1. Last meeting: Rams won, 23-20, on Nov. 30, 1997, at Washington. Outlook: QB Trent Green used to work for the Redskins. Coach Mike Martz, too. Now both are flourishing with the Rams. Green is remarkable: Stale off the bench in place of Kurt Warner, he has produced a 2-1 record and 12 TD passes. He is showing his mobility, too, scrambling for first downs and big plays.

ASHBURN, Va. - After a whirlwind three months during which he left the comfort of college in favor of a much-anticipated shot at the NFL, Washington Redskins coach Steve Spurrier got a chance to take the field for the first time yesterday with his team and do what many believe he does best - call plays. Spurrier - whose arrival to the NFL has been as talked about as that of any college coach in recent history - and the Redskins opened a three-day minicamp at the team's training facility.

ASHBURN, Va. - Likely Hall of Fame Washington Redskins cornerback Darrell Green, who hinted last week that his decision to retire after the season may have been influenced by the lack of respect new coach Marty Schottenheimer showed him in training camp, announced yesterday that he will "unretire" and play his 20th season in 2002. "After discussing it with my wife, Jewell, and our family [Sunday night], I decided it was premature to retire this year," Green, 41, said in a prepared statement.

ASHBURN, Va. - As former Redskins head coach and defensive coordinator Richie Petitbon has probably said a million times in the 19 years since Darrell Green came to man the cornerback slot in Washington, he didn't think much of Green when he first showed up. Petitbon, who came to Redskin Park yesterday to mark Green's retirement at the end of this season, said he thought Green, at 5 feet 9, was too small to make it in the NFL. In Petitbon's first impression,...

ASHBURN, Va. - Darrell Green is not being deceptive about his status for the Washington Redskins' Monday night game against the Super Bowl-champion St. Louis Rams. Truth is, he really does not know. The 18-year NFL veteran cornerback wants to play, but to declare he will do so would be a bit premature. Green is still recovering from a calf injury sustained in the first quarter of the game against the Ravens on Oct. 30. Rarely have his services been more in need than against the Rams, the league's most prolific passing team.

ASHBURN, Va. - On the same day the Redskins got back cornerback Darrell Green, team owner Daniel M. Snyder received a package from a zealous fan. Loudoun County officers decided not to take any chances with a suspicious package addressed to Snyder and sent to Redskins Park, accompanied by a letter, about 2 p.m. yesterday and called the bomb squad. The letter "was a bit rambling," said Loudoun County Officer Eric Noble said. "A superfan probably, but just a little bit odd in his writing."

HERNDON, Va. -- Darrell Green understands life on the corner."I just didn't just get here. I've been here nine years. Hey, all's well," the Washington Redskins cornerback said as he laughed yesterday.Yes, he was laughing even though all wasn't well Sunday for the NFL's fastest man when Michael Irvin of the Dallas Cowboys caught nine passes for 130 yards and a touchdown against him.Green, though, suffered no physical or emotional scars from the off day."I'll tell you what. I say this in humility, not in pride.
