IRVING, Texas -- Yesterday's 40-15 NFC wild-card loss to the Dallas Cowboys left Minnesota Vikings coach Dennis Green with an 0-4 playoff record.There was much speculation during the season that Green, beset with much-publicized personal problems, was going to be replaced by former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz.But team president Roger Headrick has remained a Green supporter, especially after the team made the playoffs."He's not done as far as I'm concerned," Headrick said after yesterday's loss.

When Butch Davis walked away from the Cleveland Browns last week, he left behind a trail of ill will forged by his four-year power grab. The more power Davis grabbed, the less effectively he wielded it. In the end, players tuned him out, management distrusted his decisions, and fans heaped their frustration on him. Consider the stunning rise and fall of Davis instructive in the long-held NFL policy of copying success. Teams can try to copy winning formulas, but rarely can they duplicate them.

You probably heard only half the Dennis Green story. You heard the good half, about how, when he moved from Stanford to the Minnesota Vikings last week, he became the second black head coach in modern NFL history.Here's the downside: At the same time Green left Stanford, he also left the Division I-A college football ranks without a single black head coach.That's right. Green was the last one standing, according to a spokesman from the American Football Coaches Association.Out of 106, rah-rah, sis-boom-bah, big-time, big-money, big-deal schools, none of them has a black head coach.

Dennis Green has been an organizer of something or other almost his entire life.In adolescence, it was neighborhood sporting events in his hometown of Harrisburg, Pa. In high school, it was a summer job supervising a four-man, airport maintenance crew.For the last 20 years, he's been orchestrating the ebb and flow of six different football teams on a variety of levels.Green, 43, has been good at all of these organizational ventures, too. So good that he says he never had to apply for any of the nine jobs he's held in football over two decades.

Division predictionPencil in Chicago and Tampa Bay for fourth and fifth. Then it gets difficult. You could virtually pick Minnesota, Detroit and Green Bay out of a hat because they're so close. Warren Moon's quarterbacking gives Minnesota a slight edge, and the Scott Mitchell-Barry Sanders duo should get Detroit the runner-up spot, which leaves Green Bay in third fighting for a playoff spot.1. Minnesota Vikings1993 record: 9-7, tied for second in division; lost to Giants in wild-card playoff.
