SAN DIEGO -- The Miami Dolphins, without a victory since the Leon Lett game, are beginning to look like a David Shula team. Last-second bomb passes work against them, 245-pound running backs barrel through them and the playoffs may now pass by them.Miami coach Don Shula spent November consoling his son, David -- whose Bengals started 0-11 -- but now who is consoling whom?The Dolphins were trounced, 45-20, by the San Diego Chargers last night at Jack Murphy Stadium, and, with four straight losses and a 9-6 record, Miami's postseason possibilities can be counted on only two fingers.

Some of the mystique that hovers over the San Francisco 49ers dissipated like a Bay Area fog in the midday sun whenSteve Emtman chose to play for the Dolphins.The Dolphins edged the Super Bowl champions in this free-agent derby last week, marking the first time since the salary cap has been in place that San Francisco lost a player it coveted.And thus a rivalry is born.The two teams stood wallet to wallet in a high-stakes recruiting war last year, with the 49ers winning the services of Deion Sanders and probably sealing their Super Bowl fate.

MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins yesterday won the brief but high-priced sweepstakes for three-time Pro Bowl tight end Keith Jackson, gaining a major offensive weapon in one of the biggest acquisitions in club history.The NFL stature of Jackson, 27, was reflected in the fact he chose halftime of "ABC's Monday Night Football" telecast as the regal stage for his announcement.The Dolphins were to introduce Jackson today at a Joe Robbie Stadium news conference. He agreed to terms but did not actually sign yesterday, contrary to ABC reports.

The Washington Redskins want to play 19 games this year.That's because the only way they can do that is to make the Super Bowl.But the team they may wind up being compared with could be their 20th foe: the 1972 Miami Dolphins.As the Redskins -- 9-0 going into today's game against the Atlanta Falcons -- attempt to match the Dolphins' feat of a perfect season (17-0), the comparisons will become more inevitable with each Washington victory.And the two teams appear to be quite similar.Both featured excellent head coaches (Joe Gibbs and Don Shula)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The joy ride stopped here for the Miami Dolphins yesterday.For two weeks, football had been fun for the Dolphins. Their defense had teeth, their offense had balance and Dan Marino -- for the first time in memory, anyway -- had a running game.On a sunny, wind-swept afternoon in the Meadowlands, it all fell apart, though. The New York Giants pierced the Dolphins' unbeaten bubble with a resounding 20-3 victory before 76,483 at Giants Stadium.Call it a triumph of smash-mouth football.

JEAN-MICHEL Cousteau ("Save the dolphin: Let it go free!", Other Voices, May 11) begins eloquently by pointing out that "contact with marine mammals is educational" and "observation helps us to understand and respect the animals, and engenders the will to protect them in the wild."These are the premises on which the zoos, oceanariums, aquariums and marine life parks are founded.A recent Roper poll shows that the American public is in near-unanimous agreement (92 percent) in its understanding that these facilities play an essential role in educating the public about marine mammals and the need for their conservation.

MIAMI -- Marv Levy made the Buffalo Bills an unusual promise at the team meeting the night before their crucial AFC East, first-place showdown against the Dolphins: Beat Miami and he'll sing in the locker room.For some reason, that motivated the Bills, especially the defense, which, in a span of 7:18, scored two touchdowns and set up two more in Buffalo's wild, 47-34 victory over the slumping Dolphins yesterday at Joe Robbie Stadium."At the end of our meeting [Saturday] night, I was telling them that it's not the 3-4 or the 4-3 or the no-huddle.

Here's what's different from when the Ravens smashed Miami by two touchdowns in October: Jason Ferguson is healthy at nose tackle, anchoring the middle of the defensive line that was pushed around. Here's what's different: Quarterback Chad Pennington is the bandleader of an offense that knows what it needs to do now. Here's what's different: The Dolphins aren't a team digging out from the rubble of its 1-15 season in 2007. It's a team that has won nine of its past 10 games. It's a team that conquered the AFC East.

Miami Dolphins rookie linebacker Bryan Cox, who left his first NFL game on a stretcher with a spinal injury, was released from the hospital yesterday after tests found no paralysis.Cox was one of the few Dolphins to star in their preseason opener Friday night, a 6-0 loss to the Chicago Bears. The fifth-round draft choice from Western Illinois made six solo tackles, but was hurt on the game's final play.Cox lay motionless until he was carefully placed on a hard stretcher and taken to an ambulance.

If you were asked to make a dolphin sculpture for a fountain in front of the aquarium's new Marine Mammal Pavilion, would you make it with bentwood chair backs, a bowling pin, a Christmas tree stand, a pruning saw, a croquet mallet, a watering can, bicycle and tricycle parts, a shovel blade, electricians' conduit, a golf bag, a motorcycle helmet and a shoe tree?You would if you were Leonard Streckfus.When the William Donald Schaefer Promenade in front of the Pier 4 pavilion is dedicated Wednesday at 4 p.m., the world will be able to see Mr. Streckfus' junk, in the form of five dolphins that appear to be swimming through the triangular fountain's machine-made 30-inch waves.
