Super Bowl Sunday arrives, and Nate Smith has an important message for his girlfriend, Darlene Griffin. It goes like this: "Don't be wearin' my slippers. " That's a warning Nate uttered the other day, after cutting my hair in the West Baltimore shop where he styles and teaches the tonsorial arts. He seemed to be asking me to convey the message for him, though I'm sure he's delivered it directly by now: "Don't be wearin' my slippers, Darlene. " Those are Nate's 'Niners slippers, see, a gift from a customer.

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.

The Seattle Seahawks can offer Paul Allen's open checkbook and a defense manned by high-priced former free agents.The San Diego Chargers can serve up the No. 1 defense in the league and the unlimited potential of young franchise quarterback Ryan Leaf, however immature he might be.The Ravens can sell a young, hungry defense and the sparkle of a new stadium.But if you are searching for the best coaching opportunity in the NFL in 1999, the place to start is Cleveland, where a management team of former San Francisco 49ers is preparing to resurrect the Browns in a big way.Among the perks the expansion Browns can offer a new head coach are the first choice in the draft, 14 extra picks over the next two years, a full salary cap to work under and a new stadium to operate in.If the anticipated purge strikes the sidelines again this off-season, top-of-the-line coaches will have their pick of some very attractive positions.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Everson Walls saw a familiar face when he walked onto the field at Candlestick Park Sunday -- Dwight Clark."I think they had him out there just to kind of psych me out a little bit. You come right out of the locker room and all you've heard about is 'The Catch' and then as soon as I come out, there's Dwight," Walls said yesterday.Walls added with a smile, "It looked like he'd gotten taller."Nine years ago on that same field, Clark -- now a 49ers front-office executive -- made a leaping catch in the end zone that is now part of football lore.

SAN FRANCISCO -- It's not enough that it pits the two teams with the best records in the Bog By the Bay with a Super Bowl berth on the line.It's not enough that it's being called the real Super Bowl because the NFC champion has won eight straight Super Bowls.What adds an extra dimension to today's NFC title game between the San Francisco 49ers (15-2) and the Dallas Cowboys (14-3) at Candlestick Park is that it could be a moment for the passing of the torch.There's a chance this could be time when the Team of the '90s grabs the championship torch from the Team of the '80s.

UNTIL SUNDAY, the words Art Modell and the Vince Lombardi Trophy had not exactly fit together like pieces in the perfect joint. The trophy goes to the Super Bowl winner. Mr. Modell's team, neither the original Cleveland Browns nor its Baltimore Ravens incarnation, had been to a Super Bowl, much less won one. It wasn't so much the trophy that seemed incongruent in the same sentence with the Ravens owner. It was the Lombardi name. In 40 years in the NFL, Mr. Modell had earned a reputation as what Paul Brown, the first and legendary Browns coach, called a "playing owner."
