Given Jon Gruden's predilection for changing quarterbacks often, it's a wonder Brian Griese will start for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today at Denver after tossing six interceptions the past two weeks. Griese got the job after Jeff Garcia threw a critical pick in a Week 1 loss. Even though Griese ranks 30th in the NFL's passer ratings and he's averaging an interception for every 11.8 completions this year, he has won all three starts to keep the job. Despite having Garcia and Luke McCown available, Gruden hasn't budged in his support of Griese, who spent his first five seasons with the Broncos.

While many NFL teams made a decision at quarterback this week, the Ravens have to make up their mind on theirs: Either wait another month for Steve McNair or begin to pursue Kerry Collins and Brian Griese. According to a league source, the Ravens have discussed the possibility of not adding a veteran quarterback until after the NFL draft, which is the earliest the Tennessee Titans would consider cutting McNair. Unlike Collins or Griese - who would compete against Kyle Boller in training camp - McNair would likely be the undisputed starter if he joined the Ravens.

The Denver Broncos have set up a guessing game with their starting quarterbacks, but the Ravens defense doesn't intend to play. Broncos coach Mike Shanahan has closed all practices and could wait until game day before revealing which of his banged-up quarterbacks -- Brian Griese or Gus Frerotte -- will be his starter for Sunday's wild-card game at PSINet Stadium. Still, Ravens defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis won't be losing any sleep over this mystery. Griese and Frerotte are basically interchangeable parts.

For the second time in a week, a prominent member of the Denver Broncos' offense said the defending Super Bowl champions are in need of an attitude adjustment.In the wake of a 26-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, quarterback Brian Griese reiterated Sunday what tailback Terrell Davis said after a Week 1 loss to Miami."We need a change in attitude," Griese said after getting benched in his second NFL start. "We need to come out and play like we come to dominate the other team."Instead, the Broncos, off to an unthinkable 0-2 start, are being dominated.

DENVER -- The sentiment throughout the Denver Broncos' locker room after yesterday's 20-13 loss to the Ravens was unanimous: The Broncos want another shot at the reigning Super Bowl champions. "They came into our place and played a great game defensively, but it's not like they were an unbeatable team," Broncos quarterback Brian Griese said. "We had our opportunities on offense and just didn't execute the way we needed to. We needed to play close to a perfect game to score points on that defense, and we didn't do it."

If Denver's Brian Griese became available, he would likely top the Ravens' quarterback free-agent list. At this point, the feeling is not mutual. Ralph Cindrich, the agent for Griese, said yesterday that his client would not consider the Ravens under their current asking price for a starting quarterback. The team recently offered a three-year deal worth between $1.5 million to $2 million a season to Jeff Blake, who is also represented by Cindrich. Griese, who started 51 games the past four seasons, is expected to be released by the Broncos after June 1 in a salary cap-related move and has drawn interest from the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears.

PASADENA, Calif. -- The top-ranked Michigan Wolverines had all they could handle yesterday, but they handled No. 8 Washington State just well enough to remain undefeated and, apparently, win their first college football national championship in 50 years.Quarterback Brian Griese, who stayed largely in the shadow of Heisman Trophy-winning teammate Charles Woodson and Cougars quarterback Ryan Leaf during the pre-game buildup, threw three touchdown passes to lead Michigan to a heart-stopping 21-16 victory in the 84th Rose Bowl.

Perhaps we'd be better off with a playoff system for Division I-A football. But where would that leave the Pioneer PureVision Las Vegas Bowl? On Tuesday, the first of 28 college bowl games airs (New Orleans Bowl, 8 p.m., ESPN), and maybe, by the end, the parade of 6-5 and 7-4 teams stomping across corporate-logoed fields will have lost your interest. But the current setup does have its supporters, including two ABC/ESPN game analysts, Bob Griese and Bob Davie. "I kind of like it the way it is," Griese said on a conference call yesterday.

Tampa, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers knew it was only a matter of time before opponents started stacking the line of scrimmage in hopes of slowing down Carnell "Cadillac" Williams. The Detroit Lions were successful at it yesterday, but containing the rookie also left them vulnerable to other playmakers in an improved offense that's helped the Bucs to their first 4-0 start since 1997. With Williams slowed by a sore hamstring, Joey Galloway and Michael Pittman took up the slack and Tampa Bay's defense stopped a march deep in their territory to hang on for a 17-13 victory.

The Ravens are optimistic about signing left guard Edwin Mulitalo to a new contract this week but expect quarterback Jeff Blake to test the free-agent market. With the NFL's free-agency period beginning Friday, Mulitalo and the Ravens are closing in on a five- to seven-year deal that would keep the four-year starter from becoming an unrestricted free agent. The move would solidify the left side of the offensive line, where Mulitalo, 28, has forged a mauling combination with All-Pro tackle Jonathan Ogden.

THE RAVENS CAN'T lose now. Even if they do. After hammering the Broncos yesterday to give Baltimore its first NFL playoff win since Richard Nixon was in the White House, the Ravens have officially reached the point where this season is a no-lose proposition. No matter what happens next Sunday in Tennessee, or in any subsequent games, the Ravens have maxed out. Soared beyond the reach of all skepticism. Squeezed as much out of the 2000 season as even a reasonable optimist could have expected.

They're healthy and chasing down quarterbacks with breathtaking speed and tenacity. End Michael McCrary and linebacker Peter Boulware gave the Ravens everything they could want in helping to harass Denver quarterback Brian Griese into a quarterback rating of 54, two interceptions and five sacks in Sunday's 20-13 win over the Broncos. McCrary finished with two sacks, a handful of hurries and five tackles against the Broncos, while Boulware had eight tackles, 1.5 sacks and a couple of sure bets that went astray because of his overaggressiveness.
