At the time, he was a relatively obscure sophomore who had put up big numbers for Brigham Young amid little national attention. But when Ty Detmer threw for 576 yards and accounted for four touchdowns in a wild 50-39 loss to Penn State at the 1989 Holiday Bowl, he gave notice of things to come."

PHILADELPHIA - When the Philadelphia Eagles needed him most, quarterback Donovan McNabb might not have been at his best during Sunday's 24-21 Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots. Center Hank Fraley said yesterday that McNabb was so worn down toward the end of the game that he almost vomited in the huddle. "He was exhausted," Fraley said. "He had to run around a couple of times and scramble and he was getting hit pretty good. ... When you exhaust your body, that's how it reacts sometimes."

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- When Penn State and Brigham Young finished playing two years ago in the Holiday Bowl, there were enough big plays and excitement left over for another game. Eighty-nine points were scored -- 50 by the Nittany Lions -- and a college football legend named Ty Detmer had been born.Too bad that some of those plays and some of that excitement couldn't have been put toward last night's rematch at sold-out Beaver Stadium. And too bad for Detmer that he didn't leave for the NFL before this season.

One team stood out amid the wheeling and dealing of final cuts last week. That team, the Cleveland Browns, reshaped its roster - if not its destiny - with a stunning 55 transactions in a 10-day period. Whether the Browns significantly improved their AFC Central standing remains to be seen. But new coach/personnel czar Butch Davis clearly has an idea of where he wants to take the team. And it's definitely not sixth place again. With an eye on future drafts, Davis dealt incumbent backup quarterback Ty Detmer to Detroit for a 2002 pick, and packaged third-string quarterback Spergon Wynn and running back Travis Prentice to Minnesota for future choices.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Hurt by interceptions late in the season, quarterback Ty Detmer threw two more yesterday and the Philadelphia Eagles paid the ultimate price.Their 14-0 wild-card playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers was a study in offensive futility.Although the Eagles out-gained the 49ers by nearly double in the first half (181 yards to 92), they were thwarted three times inside the 49ers' 20-yard line -- twice inside the 10 on interceptions.The first was a pass Detmer tried to throw away from the 7, but 49ers cornerback Marquez Pope picked off the lob throw in the end zone.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- An easy mistake for anyone sizing up the second Disneyland Pigskin Classic tonight (9, Ch. 54) would be presuming that Brigham Young University is coming in on only Ty Detmer's wing and a prayer.But the theme for tonight's potentially explosive opener -- call it Burden of Proof -- applies not so much to Detmer, despite an inglorious close to his Heisman Trophy-winning 1990 season.Instead, the onus is on Florida State to prove that it deserves a preseason No. 1 tag assigned almost by acclamation.

Towson State improved on one of its two biggest problems from its opening-game loss, but not the other. As a result, the Tigers lost again, this time by a 13-7 score to Delaware State at home on Saturday night.On the bright side, quarterback Gary Worthington, a converted defensive player, completed seven of 17 passes for 105 yards. Modest accomplishment, yes, but much better than his 1-for-3, 8-yard day in Towson's opening 10-8 loss to Boston University.However, Towson still found it difficult to hold on to the football.

It's difficult sometimes to know exactly what you've seen after watching an NFL game. Take, for example, Monday night in Philadelphia, where Dallas came from behind to beat the Eagles, 23-19.I was backing Philly. No sooner had the game ended than a friend called to commiserate. "Too bad [Rodney] Peete got hurt or you'd have won," the friend said. "Once [Ty] Detmer got in, you were dead."Detmer was ill-prepared, I agreed, and Peete probably would have helped the Eagles put some points on the board over the final 20 minutes.

EastAfter quarterback Koy Detmer led the Eagles to an upset victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday, Philadelphia fans second-guessed coach Andy Reid for starting Doug Pederson at the beginning of the season instead of Detmer. Pederson says he has gotten too much of the blame for the losing season. "It's been my fault since the first minicamp. Everything has been piled on me," he said. Pederson was booed when he entered the game for one play Sunday after Detmer was shaken up. Dallas owner Jerry Jones wasn't happy about the Cowboys' loss to the New York Jets last Sunday that cost them a chance to take over first place in the division.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Buffalo Bills won yesterday with a draw play that wasn't in the game plan, a blocked punt that wasn't designed to get the block, and a goal-line stand that might alter the balance of power in the AFC.Other than that, the Bills' 24-17 triumph over the Philadelphia Eagles held all the usual elements of their decade-long mastery of NFC East teams.Among those elements were key contributions by Bruce Smith, Thurman Thomas, and yes, even Jim Kelly.The biggest was delivered by Smith, Buffalo's All-Pro pass rusher, who sacked quarterback Ty Detmer on fourth down in the final 30 seconds with the Eagles threatening on the Bills' 3-yard line.
