GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Patrick Ramsey experiment might be coming to a rapid end. After the Washington Redskins dropped their second consecutive game -- a 30-9 flogging by the Green Bay Packers before a Lambeau Field record crowd of 63,363 yesterday - with Ramsey as the team's starting quarterback, coach Steve Spurrier said he might turn to former starter Shane Matthews in an attempt to reverse the team's 2-4 record. "We've got to try to put the best players out there to win the game," Spurrier said.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It looked like a Super Bowl, smelled like a Super Bowl, and quacked like a Super Bowl.If the Green Bay Packers' 41-6 demolition of the Denver Broncos yesterday at Lambeau Field was a sneak preview of Super Bowl XXXI, the AFC was better off not knowing.Playing to the overdone theme of NFC superiority, the 11-3 Packers sewed up their second straight Central Division title and left the 12-2 Broncos with a Mile High headache.At least this time there was a disclaimer.Denver quarterback John Elway, limping with a tender left hamstring, didn't play in the rout.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded insults and cheap shots in yesterday's NFC divisional playoff game at Lambeau Field. Afterward, it was obvious the bad blood doesn't figure to disappear anytime soon.In the span of two minutes during the second quarter, Packers defensive tackle Santana Dotson drew a personal-foul penalty and quarterback Brett Favre had to be restrained from going after Bucs defensive tackle Warren Sapp.Dotson was penalized for unnecessary roughness when he dived into the knees of Bucs guard Frank Middleton after an aborted field-goal attempt by Tampa Bay three minutes into the second quarter.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Imagine rooting for a pro football team that has no wanderlust. A team that gives its profits to charities. A team with no greedy owner. A team that wins.Such a slice of sports heaven exists here in the chilly north woods of Wisconsin.The Green Bay Packers, the only nonprofit franchise in the NFL, are fielding big-name free agents, generating record revenues and charging some of the lowest ticket prices in the league.They are also winning, reviving an art form not seen in Titletown since Vince Lombardi stalked the sidelines in his gray fedora.

NEW ORLEANS -- While everyone talks about the Green Bay running game flourishing at the end of the season to catapult the team into the Super Bowl, the New England Patriots are more concerned about what has been the Packers' most consistent )) phase of offense over the years."Ever since they got Brett Favre, whenever they got in trouble, their passing game always bailed out their offense," said Patriots cornerback Ty Law. "Their passing game is also what got them here."Green Bay has great receivers.

Dr. Victoria Gouze was at the Hair Cuttery in Crofton, getting her shampoo rinsed out, when her beeper went off. She sat up and grabbed it. It was her husband's number, and he had tagged "911" at the end. This was urgent.A towel wrapped around her shoulders, her hair sopping wet, Gouze (rhymes with rosy) jumped out of the chair and raced to a pay phone."Do you love me?" her husband asked.Then he told her.And then she screamed.Her husband, Steve T'kach, had just secured two tickets to Super Bowl XXXI this Sunday in the Louisiana Superdome.

GREEN BAY, WIS. -- This earnest little football hamlet that claims a dozen NFL championships and justifiably calls itself Titletown is all decked out for the holidays. Just off Lombardi Avenue, in Lambeau Field Atrium - the communal gateway to the venerable stadium - five gaily decorated Christmas trees stand like festive offensive linemen under banner posters of Don Hutson and Bart Starr and Reggie White. Along a city thoroughfare named Holmgren Way, giant electric snowflakes line the street.

In 1999, Mike Holmgren walked away from Brett Favre, a street outside Lambeau Field with his name on it and a Super Bowl trophy he helped win. He gave up security, the Green Bay Packers and the best quarterback in football for the chance to do it all again - on his terms - with the Seattle Seahawks. Job titles replaced division titles. Hope replaced history. Frustration replaced success. Three years later, Holmgren's legacy in Green Bay remains intact and his future in Seattle remains unclear.

The Ravens didn't allow Sam Adams to fly the coop. After talks had broken off Friday night, the free-agent defensive tackle sat at Baltimore-Washington International Airport yesterday morning and planned to take a 9: 30 flight to Green Bay, where he was prepared to sign. But the Ravens called Adams on his cell phone and agreed on a deal about an hour before he was to board. Dressed in a gold suit, Adams arrived at the Owings Mills complex in a BWI taxi at 11 a.m. and sported a black Ravens cap before the draft began.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Pressure is as plain as the handwriting on the street signs for Green Packers coach Mike Sherman. It's bad enough to work on Lombardi Avenue; he also has to drive past Holmgren Way. At least there is no Rhodes Road. Last season was a dead end for Sherman, who presided over the first postseason loss at Lambeau Field when the Atlanta Falcons stopped his hobbled Packers. A second straight home playoff loss wouldn't exactly put Sherman on Easy Street. The Packers beat Holmgren's Seattle Seahawks, 35-13, in Green Bay on Oct. 5. Make that the Seahawks of Holmgren and Ray Rhodes, his defensive coordinator who coached the Packers in 1999 between Holmgren and protege Sherman.
