It starts here with Tracy Ham, and it starts now with a quarterback whose improvisational skills have tantalized Don Matthews for years.When Baltimore's new Canadian Football League team made Ham its marquee player Friday night, it was the boldest statement yet of where Matthews, the coach, intends to go."The great thing with Tracy Ham is that in a new franchise, there may be new people around," Matthews said. "When things break down, Tracy can do it alone. That type guy, the ad-lib guy, is of tremendous importance to the franchise."

Six weeks ago, the Edmonton Eskimos were a fast-fading bunch.The Eskimos had dropped three straight games, including a loss to hapless Ottawa and a back-to-back sweep by archrival Calgary, a series in which two defensive backs went down with injuries. Their quarterback situation was unsettled, their offense inconsistent at best. They had fallen to fourth place in the Canadian Football League's North Division. After 23 consecutive seasons in the playoffs, they seemed ready to watch the postseason.

Jim Speros doesn't have a stadium for his would-be Canadian Football League team yet, but he's fast closing in on a nickname and a coach.If the Virginia businessman brings a CFL team to Baltimore next season, it probably will be called -- drum roll, please -- the Colts. The coach could be Don Matthews, now with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and one of the league's most successful mentors."There's a good chance we'll use Baltimore Colts," Speros said yesterday.

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Baltimore coach Don Matthews makes it a point to approach every game in a businesslike fashion, although when he stepped onto Commonwealth Stadium, where the Baltimore Stallions took on the Edmonton Eskimos last night, Matthews sounded as if he were walking on hallowed ground.Before he became a head coach with the B.C. Lions in 1983, Matthews got his start as an assistant with Edmonton from 1977 to 1982. During that stretch under Hugh Campbell, now the Eskimos general manager, Edmonton won five consecutive Grey Cup championships.

One could easily mistake the Edmonton Eskimos for the Stallions these days. Both teams recently finished a grueling stretch of games during which their offenses stalled, unable to return the favors of tough defenses. And both teams suffered surprising losses as they approached the regular season's midpoint.Baltimore's 25-15 loss to the expansion Memphis Mad Dogs last week, marking the first time in the Stallions' two-year existence they had lost two straight, has been chronicled in detail.
