Don't tell the San Diego Chargers they were lucky to beat the Denver Broncos when a pass slipped out of John Elway's hands near the goal line in the final 35 seconds Sunday night.After reviewing the videotape of the Chargers' 37-34 victory when linebacker Junior Seau grabbed the ball that slipped out of Elway's hands as he tried to throw from the Chargers' 3-yard line and pull out one of his trademark late wins, Chargers coach Bobby Ross said the mishap was due to good pressure by his team.

With Dexter, Harrison and Hannah in the airport at last, it could have been the perfect start to the perfect permanent vacation - if not for the fact that Deb has been shot, Saxon is on the loose, a hurricane is approaching, and Hannah can't leave the bathroom, never mind the United States, thanks to Elway who has stationed himself outside in the boarding area. But, oddly, we expected nothing less from the series finale of a show as great as this. Dexter comes to Hannah's rescue, putting together a quick backpack and pointing airport security in Elway's direction.

DENVER -- John Elway is the Denver Broncos' most celebrated player. Terrell Davis is the reason they're about to win back-to-back Super Bowls.It's easy to forget that sometimes, especially in the middle of Elway-mania. But without Davis, the future Hall of Fame quarterback would be Dan Marino, still waiting for his first Super Bowl title.Without Davis, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen could not have shouted, "This one's for John!" after Denver's upset of Green Bay in last year's Super Bowl.Without Davis, yesterday could not have evoked memories of Sept.

Yup, Hannah's not over Dexter's betrayal, but what are her intentions? Although unable to go to the cops, Dexter has his own way of finding people and tracks his ex-lover down easily. Too easily.

As John Elway's farewell news conference wound down last Sunday, he made a surprising admission: He probably would have kept playing if he hadn't won a Super Bowl.That helps explain why Dan Marino, the last active member of the Quarterback Class of 1983, will return this fall, even though he turns 38 on Sept. 15.Marino, whose Dolphins lost to San Francisco in his lone Super Bowl appearance after the 1984 season, is still chasing that elusive ring."There's no doubt that [retirement] enters your mind sometimes, but I feel pretty good about what I'm doing," Marino said.

Oh well, one out of four ain't bad. Especially when that one involves a pulsating finish that John Elway surely must hold a patent on by now.So where did all the parity in the NFL go all of a sudden?The league had its usual collection of indigent clubs this season, the 1-15 Colts leading a nine-team contingent that combined for a winning percentage of .236 (34-for-110).OK, with the chaff out of the way it was assumed when the playoff participants stepped forward, games would take on a glow, excitement would be at a fever pitch.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver quarterback John Elway, who said he "bleeds Bronco orange and never planned on playing anywhere else," is now the highest-paid player in the National Football League.Elway, a 10-year veteran, signed a new four-year contract with the Broncos yesterday worth a reported $20 million, which surpasses the five-year, $22 million pact signed in 1992 by Miami's Dan Marino."I'm thrilled to death," Elway told a media gathering. "For me to be able to end my career in Denver is great.

MIAMI -- A climactic and historic deal, woefully constructed by a man who wasn't sure how many players were on the field, correlated itself to future Super Bowl happiness for one city (Denver) and total loss of an entire franchise by the party of the second part (Baltimore).A devastating turn of events, one that dramatically altered the structure of the NFL forevermore. It meant Denver's destiny would soon be shaped with spectacular success. For Baltimore, it was the end of the line: decimation of a team that was to be stripped of its birthright and ignominiously trucked off to Indianapolis.

DENVER -- John Elway lay flat on his back, underneath Chester McGlockton, the 320-pound Kansas City Chiefs tackle, who, a second before, had driven him into the turf. The two were motionless, listening.Elway had just thrown a ball toward Shannon Sharpe at the goal line, with the Denver Broncos' perfect season at stake."Chester and I were just looking each other in the eye," Elway said of the moment with 3: 34 left to play and the Chiefs ahead 31-28. "We were just waitin' to hear the roar."

How would you feel if you were drugged and the last thing you saw before you slid into oblivion was your ex-girlfriend serial killer (who you had put in jail) striding toward you? I think it's safe to say -- not good. Hannah McKay makes quite an entrance at the end of the episode, doing just that, but there were many other cliffhangers tonight. Sweet Harrison confronts Dexter about lying, pulling out his stuffed toy dog that Dexter said was lost -- the one covered in the blood of Andrew Briggs, whom Dexter had killed.

This summer, for the first time in decades, Ernie Accorsi didn't have to worry about training camp. He didn't have to worry about the NFL draft, the salary cap, the combine or the depth chart either. With a little extra time on his hands, the newly retired Accorsi hopped into his car and hit the road for a 4,200-mile tour of the Midwest. He visited Commerce, Okla., to see where the Mick grew up. He saw the Field of Dreams diamond in Iowa. And caught a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field.

His name is being removed from AutoNation's Denver-area car dealerships, but John Elway's image will remain fresh in the minds of Broncos fans as long as the franchise continues playing lemons at quarterback. Denver hasn't cemented an adequate replacement since Elway ended his Hall of Fame career after the 1998 season. The Broncos haven't gone to a Super Bowl since Elway guided the team to consecutive championships in his final two seasons before retiring in 1999. Not that the Broncos haven't aggressively tried addressing the matter.

IT WASN'T the clumsiest, most graceless, most hardhearted introduction by an athlete who has ever come to Baltimore. Terrell Owens and John Elway remain the runaway leaders in that category. Then again, T.O. never actually put on a Baltimore uniform. Elway never signed a contract. Neither ever accepted a paycheck, neither played in a game - much less screwed one (or two) up, or admitted how he was "going through the motions" in one, or even that his new fans weren't as smart as his previous ones.

John Elway and Ernie Accorsi are inextricably linked in NFL history because of what happened 21 years ago - the draft pick so stubbornly fought, the trade so capriciously made, the repercussions that lasted for so many years. Elway was the Stanford quarterback who wanted no part of the Baltimore Colts in 1983. Accorsi was the Colts' general manager who took him anyway with the first overall pick in the college draft. When Colts owner Bob Irsay surreptitiously traded Elway to the Denver Broncos a week after the draft, it set in motion a series of events that would ultimately haunt two cities - Baltimore and Cleveland.

While the Ravens' hiring of Jim Fassel yesterday as a senior consultant may be temporary, they are banking that his impact is not. The former New York Giants head coach built a reputation on quarterback quick fixes, needing less than one season to turn a struggling John Elway into a Most Valuable Player and transform a troubled Kerry Collins into a legitimate starter. His next project is raw second-year starter Kyle Boller and the NFL's worst passing attack. "With the caveat of maybe a Bill Walsh, I think Jim Fassel has been the preeminent quarterback coach in the National Football League over the last number of years," coach Brian Billick said as he turned to his good friend sitting next to him at the news conference.

Here's a sampling of their public comments in the last five years:Training camp, 1993, after Reeves was fired as coach of the Broncos and resurfaced with the New York Giants:Elway: "The last three years have been hell. I know that I would not have been back here if Dan Reeves had been here. It wasn't worth it to me. I didn't enjoy it. It wasn't any fun, and I got tired of working with him."

HOUSTON - Moments before publicly accepting their nominations for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, John Elway and Barry Sanders talked about what life would have been like had the two lined up in the same backfield. "We would have been fighting over that pigskin, there is no question about that," Elway said. "But I would have been glad to give it to him." While Elway, who spent 16 seasons as the Denver Broncos' quarterback, and Sanders, who spent 10 years as the Detroit Lions' running back, never even got the chance to play in the same conference, the two will now be linked as the headliners of the Class of 2004.

PITTSBURGH - The NFL's comeback kid eyed a piece of history and made a memorable mark of his own yesterday. Paying homage to his one-time mentor while conjuring up a bitter memory from the Browns' playoff past, quarterback Tommy Maddox led one of Pittsburgh's greatest comebacks, rallying the Steelers from a 17-point second-half deficit to deliver a dramatic 36-33 AFC wild-card triumph over Cleveland at Heinz Field. Maddox, a one-time apprentice to John Elway, followed the former Denver Broncos quarterback's footsteps when he marched the Steelers on a 61-yard, last-minute touchdown drive against the Browns.
