If Glenn Foley has yet to arrive as an established NFL quarterback, he certainly has taken a huge step in that direction. Just ask San Francisco quarterback Steve Young, the man with Hall of Fame credentials who remains one of the league's premier passers.After watching Foley play the game of his five-year career in last week's season opener, in which Foley hit 30 of 58 passes for 415 yards and three touchdowns to keep the New York Jets close in a 36-30 overtime loss to the 49ers, Young sought out Foley on the field at 3COM Park.

DENVER -- And so it has come to this: Vinny Testaverde could be the quarterback who sends John Elway into retirement. Not exactly the plot that everyone predicted for the AFC championship game, was it? For once, New York Jets coach Bill Parcells can't brag that he knew something that others didn't -- he signed Testaverde as a backup to Glenn Foley. And now Testaverde is 60 minutes away from the Super Bowl, trying to ruin what likely will be Elway's last game at Mile High Stadium.

The formation: Pro left, slot right.The action: At the snap, the linemen go into their pass sets. Tight end Kyle Brady (88), lined up on the left, pass blocks. Fullback Jerald Sowell (33) hooks the defensive end to allow quarterback Glenn Foley (4) to sprint right. Running back Curtis Martin (28) steps left and blocks the backside for Foley. Wayne Chrebet (80), lined up in the slot, runs a deep post, while fellow wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson (19) runs a 7-yard pattern and then curls. Johnson has been the Jets' primary receiver on this play, but Foley occasionally has thrown to Chrebet.

SAN FRANCISCO (3-1) AT NEW ORLEANS (3-1)Time: 1: 01 p.m.Line: 49ers by 10.Vs. spread: 49ers 1-3; Saints 4-0.Outlook: What the heck happened to the 49ers last week in that ghastly loss to Buffalo? It was like the most productive offensive machine in football didn't bother coming to the stadium. That won't happen today, not with QB Steve Young and talented WRs Jerry Rice and J. J. Stokes against a defense ranked 29th against the pass. In losing last week for the first time this season, New Orleans nonetheless gained a bit of legitimacy by taking New England down to the final three seconds before falling.

The Naval Academy deserves to be applauded for a classy act at the midpoint of the football season. The team's 0-5 record is hardly reason for applause. But Navy, in the face of a terrible injustice, has reacted with admirable restraint.When notified the other day that the game officials had blown a call, allowing Air Force to go on to a last-minute field goal and a tainted 18-16 victory over the Midshipmen, Navy resisted the urge to scream bloody murder.The Mids did not protest the game, demand a recount or ask that the win be taken away from Air Force.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The madness of this entire autumn was frozen late yesterday afternoon on a patch of worn grass in the north end of Notre Dame Stadium. Gathering darkness, November chill, gold helmets -- "Football at its finest," said Boston College quarterback Glenn Foley -- and the rich, sweet flavors of redemption and shock.Eight days ago, not 5 yards from this spot -- in the Game of the Century, no less -- the mortal lock Heisman Trophy winner could not beat Notre Dame on the last play of an epic game.

ANNAPOLIS -- Eight days after becoming Navy's all-time offensive leader, Alton Grizzard soon may be facing the prospect of watching the start of a game from the sidelines.That possibility increased yesterday, as Grizzard was responsible for six Navy turnovers -- three of which resulted in Boston College touchdowns -- as the Eagles rallied to beat the Midshipmen, 28-17, before 25,551 yesterday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.Under a constant pass rush, Grizzard threw a career-high five interceptions and fumbled once, as Navy (2-2)

The Big Tuna may become the latest NFL coach to get tangled in the Vinny Testaverde net.Bill Parcells, the New York Jets coach, who is usually referred to simply as "Tuna" on the back pages of the New York tabloids, signed Testaverde to be his backup last week after Neil O'Donnell refused to take a pay cut and was released.If Testaverde remains the backup to Glenn Foley -- Parcells said Foley gets the "benefit of the doubt" in the duel -- there shouldn't be a problem.But if Foley, who has been injury-prone, gets hurt or is ineffective and Testaverde winds up starting, it's hard to imagine a worse fit for the former Ravens quarterback.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- These are the kind of games that help build winning football teams.The Ravens had a brilliant goal-line stand in the second quarter yesterday followed by a big reception by Michael Jackson. They got a big play in the form of a 69-yard punt return for a touchdown from Jermaine Lewis and a bigger play, a 60-yard interception return by Rod Woodson. No. 2 quarterback Eric Zeier did an excellent job in relief of Jim Harbaugh and Jay Graham provided a spark when he replaced running back Errict Rhett.
