There was Maryland football talent all over the Byrd Stadium turf in the mid-1980s. There was a cocky, brash quarterback by the name of Boomer Esiason who loved the limelight and everything that came with it. There was a quiet, soft-spoken quarterback in Frank Reich, who would become known as "Captain Comeback." Right in the middle of those two contrasting personalities was another talented quarterback, Stan Gelbaugh. All three were on their way to NFL careers. They were the focal point of teams that featured such future high-round NFL picks as offensive guard Ron Solt, defensive end Pete Koch and center Kevin Glover.

Back in 1984, Stan Gelbaugh considered himself just another talented University of Maryland quarterback trying to help the Terrapins win, while hoping to survive long enough to throw a football for a living in the NFL. Gelbaugh would go on to draw a paycheck for 11 seasons, primarily as a backup in Buffalo and Seattle. And by the time he retired in 1996, Gelbaugh knew he had blossomed at an unlikely time, during an era that smiled unusually on the quarterbacks who paraded through College Park.

"We're sitting there, talking on the telephone, watching the game, laughing," Edwards said. "We were saying, 'Look at this, he's going to do it again!' "Jess Atkinson, Frank Reich's roommate at Maryland, couldn't tear himself away from the television in his kitchen. "At halftime, I was thinking, 'I can go play with my kid.'

If and when I sign a contract here, it'll be a two-year contract. But the NFL wasn't interested, anyway, so here I am. I make my living playing football, and the money spends as good as the money earned down there," he said last night from Hamilton, Ontario.

SACRAMENTO -- A funny thing has happened to David Archer's descending NFL stock. It has suddenly seemed to be stuck between floors."We're following him very closely," says Zeke Bratkowski, the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback coach. "He looks like he's playing with a lot of confidence, and he's got that veteran poise."We've got to have him back in camp."It was only December that the Eagles released Archer, having signed him in Week 15 as a desperation backup to Brad Goebel, an elevated third-stringer.
