FROSTBURG -- When the Washington Redskins drafted Heath Shuler last year, one of the things they liked about him was his quick feet.Shuler's speed came in handy last month, when he --ed through the Atlanta airport to help himself and a great-grandmother he had met at Baltimore-Washington International Airport catch a flight to Knoxville, Tenn.The woman, a 67-year-old widow named Bessie McFarland who has three sons, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, then decided she wanted to thank the Redskins quarterback in writing for helping her make the connection.

Ron Lynn, who once beat John Elway with the help of the Stanford band, probably could use the help of a tuba player or two this Sunday."I've seen more than enough of him over the course of a long time," Lynn, the Washington defensive coordinator, said yesterday as he started to prepare for the Redskins' game against Elway's Denver Broncos.Lynn was coaching at the University of California in 1982, when his team beat Stanford with the five laterals on a kickoff return through the Stanford band.

Coach Norv Turner fired Gus Frerotte last year. Now Frerotte could play a role in getting Turner fired.That could be the situation Sunday when Turner brings his Washington Redskins to the Silverdome to play the Detroit Lions.The Redskins have won 18 straight from the Lions, including two playoff games, in a streak dating to 1968, and Turner needs a victory in this duel between 7-4 teams.With his job hanging by a thread, Turner needs to beat the Lions to stay a game ahead of the Dallas Cowboys, who play the New England Patriots on Sunday, and two games ahead of the Arizona Cardinals, who play host to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday and come to Washington next week, in the NFC East.

In 1997, the Falcons were out of contention when they won five of their last six.Notable: The Falcons went 7-3 in games QB Chris Chandler started and finished, 0-6 in games he didn't.

North County's Mike Evans is on a pace to rewrite the state football record book for passing in a single season. At the season's halfway mark, the Knights' senior quarterback has completed 105 of 167 passes for 1,624 yards and 21 touchdowns.If Evans can duplicate those numbers over the last five games, he would finish with state records in all four major categories except attempted passes, and he would only be three short of that mark.The Evans line doubled would give him 42 touchdown passes, eclipsing the state mark of 28 shared by four others -- Justin Rice (1993)

Henry Ellard and John Gesek have seen firsthand the growing pains of a young quarterback.Ellard saw Jim Everett arrive with the Los Angeles Rams 1986 and struggle before taking the team to the NFC title game in 1989.Gesek arrived in Dallas in 1990, when Troy Aikman was a second-year quarterback still trying to find himself before becoming a two-time Super Bowl winner.That helps explain why they're both stressing the Washington Redskins have to have patience with their young quarterback, Heath Shuler, after he played poorly for the third straight exhibition game in the team's 27-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night.
