NEW ORLEANS -- With 1 minute, 11 seconds left to play in the third quarter last night, the Dallas Cowboys' Emmitt Smith lurched to the turf, thereby prompting The Groan Heard 'Round the Earth.The mother of all groans, as it were. Or America's Groan, if you buy into that Cowboys-as-national-icon bit.When Emmitt Smith aches, Cowboys worshipers everywhere wince. When he flinches, they flinch.And when Smith's left hamstring stops him dead in his tracks, as it did last night during a 24-16 victory over the New Orleans Saints, they groan.

Last week: Sabrina got voted off and Carrie Ann acted like she'd been shot in the gut when Tom announced it. Tonight is "fusion" night, aka you got your peanut butter in my chocolate. Oh, and there's going to be some sort of dance marathon. We start with the pros doing essentially a "Latin" melange.   During the staircase introduction, Shawn walks down with both Derek and Mark, which is kind of cute. And Kirstie's done up like a beer wench/pirate. Heaven help us all. First up is a montage from the judges which I will sum up in a short sentence for you: Fusion is mixing two dance styles, which may be quite different from one another, in a single routine.

BEREA, Ohio — For Trent Richardson, the pressure of following in Emmitt Smith's footsteps was inescapable. Richardson tried to carve his own path while playing running back at Escambia High School in Pensacola, Fla., which produced all-time NFL rushing leader Smith. But every time people heard that Richardson was from Pensacola, he said, their response was, "Oh, you got Emmitt Smith from there. " "You're playing at Emmitt Smith's high school, there's tremendous incentive to do the same thing, if not better," said Escambia track coach Derrick Boyd, Richardson's mentor.

IRVING, Texas -- The Washington Redskins gave a clinic last night on why it's so difficult to repeat in the NFL.The defending champions, picking up where they left off during their listless preseason, were crushed in their 1992 regular-season opener by the Dallas Cowboys, 23-10, at Texas Stadium .The Redskins were only a shadow of the determined team that had won its first 11 games last year and went on to win Super TC Bowl XXVI with a 17-2 record.The...

Emmitt Smith dreamed about this as a teenager, planned for it as a rookie, lived it for the past year as his personal countdown grew louder and shorter. Sometime soon - possibly on Sunday - the Dallas Cowboys' running back will pass Walter Payton as the most prolific rusher in NFL history. It will be the crowning accomplishment in a career destined for the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, and a deserving tribute to one of the game's most respected stars. But what makes it all the more remarkable is that Smith, now 33, envisioned this day for the first time as a youngster - at the age of 14 or 15, he says - growing up in Escambia, Fla. It was right around that time that Payton slashed past Jim Brown in the record book.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones lost his salary war with Emmitt Smith yesterday, but he may have won the battle to save the team's season.After insisting for weeks that he wasn't going to pay Smith as much as Thurman Thomas because of the NFL's looming salary cap, Jones signed Smith to a four-year, $13.6 million deal that makes him the highest-paid running back in pro football.With the defending Super Bowl champions 0-2 and on the verge on unraveling, Jones gave Smith a contract worth an average of $25,000 a year more than the $13.5 million deal that Thomas signed with the Buffalo Bills in July.

Don't mess with those Gators. Stan Forron, owner of the Gainesville, Fla., towing company involved in burglary charges against Florida safety Tony Joiner, got the message. The message arrived via 200 threatening phone calls - including more than 12 death threats - after Joiner briefly faced charges for going into the lot and trying to remove his girlfriend's car. Prosecutors dropped the charges after Forron said the matter was a misunderstanding. "I'm just glad it wasn't [Gators quarterback]

ABC announced the cast for the fourth season of Dancing With the Stars yesterday, and if you thought it couldn't get any more interesting than Emmitt Smith and Jerry Springer, you were very, very wrong. The new season returns March 19 with a two-hour show that will pit Laila Ali, the undefeated world champion boxer and daughter of Muhammad Ali, against Heather Mills, the estranged wife of Paul McCartney, who is the first contestant who will compete with an artificial limb - a leg. The two fighters - Mills is an activist for animal rights and elimination of the use of land mines - will also compete against singer Billy Ray Cyrus, NBA all-star Clyde Drexler, actor Vince Pastore of The Sopranos, supermodel Paulina Porizkova, Olympic gold medalist Apolo Anton Ohno, actor and musician Joey Fatone, Miss USA 2004 Shandi Finnessey and TV talk-show host Leeza Gibbons.

The opening credits of Wednesday's Dancing With the Stars results show made it seem like the show has been on forever. Who even remembers Tucker Carlson's dancing anyway? But now it's down to the final two couples: Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff and Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke. After the first episode, I thought the final two would be Lopez and Joey Lawrence, but over the course of the competition, Smith has proven himself an able and entertaining dancer, too. Only time will tell who will win the ugly trophy and the competition next week.

At long last, Jerry Springer can rest easy. The talk-show host was the latest to be ejected on this week's Dancing With the Stars, something he and many others have been expecting for weeks now. Don't get me wrong - the guy knows how to entertain (and he's more charming than I would have anticipated), but he's not that great a dancer. Now, we'll enter the final four with contestants who can all really move: Monique Coleman, Joey Lawrence, Mario Lopez and Emmitt Smith.

Clearly, there is only one thing that could possibly be worse than the Ravens opening the season 0-2. The Redskins opening 2-0. In fact, it was so galling to watch Dan Snyder jumping up and down (though at his apex, he only reached the height of 5 feet 10) in the final seconds of Monday night's stunning, 14-13 victory over the rival Dallas Cowboys that I switched over to Late Night with David Letterman just in time to hear Martha Stewart explaining how much she enjoyed prison. (Frankly, I'm a little surprised she didn't just bake a cake with a file in it and skip to the Caymans, but I guess when you're worth billions, it's better to gut it out ... sort of like Joe Gibbs with the quarterback thing and Danny with that personality.

Coming in handy The Chargers' LaDainian Tomlinson became the first halfback in NFL history to catch 100 passes. And he broke his own club record for combined yards with 2,370. He has four 200-yard rushing games, tying him for second place on the career list with Jim Brown, Earl Campbell and Barry Sanders. The record is six, by O.J. Simpson. Five-digit man The Titans' Eddie George is the 17th NFL player with 10,000 career rushing yards. The other active running backs over 10,000 yards rushing are Emmitt Smith, Jerome Bettis, Curtis Martin and Marshall Faulk.

ON A SUNDAY when the road was as hospitable as it's ever going to get, there were revelations aplenty in the NFL yesterday. We found out, for instance, that Brett Favre can still throw for touchdowns even when his brain is scrambled like an egg; that Emmitt Smith still has the heart, if not the youthful body, of a champion; and that it takes more than the Buffalo blitz to unsettle Tom Brady. The top three stories, more or less, of Week 4: 1. The New England Patriots dismantled the Bills and Drew Bledsoe in Buffalo, 31-17, to tie the NFL record with their 18th consecutive victory.

Editor's Note: This fantasy football column will appear Thursdays on the Web site throughout the NFL regular season. The NFL went Old School in Week 1 to the disgust of plenty of fantasy owners. Emmitt Smith ran like the Emmitt Smith of old, while Deuce McAllister looked more like the Emmitt Smith of new. Up-and-comers Michael Vick, Trent Green and Matt Hasselbeck weren't as good as down-and-on-their-way-outers Vinny Testaverde and Rich Gannon. Running backs Curtis Martin, Jerome Bettis and Warrick Dunn were among the biggest surprises.
