Four years later, the answer still eludes Jamal Anderson.Yes, he found retribution. Certainly, he has enjoyed the last laugh.But the answer as to why he was a seventh-round draft pick out of Utah in 1994, selected after 200 other players -- including 23 other running backs? No, there still is no answer for that. Just theories.And Anderson, in his fifth year with the Atlanta Falcons, has heard them all."It was difficult to assess where I belonged," he said, drifting down the path of speculation and hindsight.

But the network has yet to hear from him. So let's guess we won't be seeing Anderson soon. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/mediumwell)

Atlanta Falcons Last season: 5-11, third. Coach: Dan Reeves (167-128-1), fourth season with Falcons, 20th in NFL. Strength of schedule: tie for 22nd. Starting quarterback: Chris Chandler (52-58). Best move: WR Shawn Jefferson may be overpaid at $14.2 million over five years, but the Falcons badly needed someone to stretch opposing defenses and take some pressure off of Jamal Anderson. Missing piece: The vacancy at DE is alarming. Lester Archambeau and Chuck Smith, the most underrated tandem in the NFL, have gone to Denver and Carolina.

AFC: N.Y. Jets (13-4) at Denver (15-2)Why Denver should win:The home-field advantage at Mile High Stadium is compelling for the Broncos. But they'll compound the noise factor with eight-man fronts that seem certain to rattle Jets quarterback Vinny Testaverde. And Testaverde will need to make a lot of big plays because the Broncos have the second-ranked run defense in the league.Why New York could win: It's up to coordinator Bill Belichick's defense to keep the Jets in striking range. One of the NFL's best schemers, Belichick's big challenge will be to clog Terrell Davis' cutback lanes.

For most of the 1990s, the NFC championship game has been one of the sexy events on the sports calendar, with more than enough star power to hold a viewer's interest.With some variation of the San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers involved, the NFC title game has more often than not been more compelling than the over-ballyhooed Super Bowl, played two weeks later.But for the first time in seven seasons and only the second time in the last 11 years, none of those teams, with their proven marquee value, will play for a Super berth.

MIAMI -- Jamal Anderson knows that a showman needs to keep coming up with new material. That's why the fifth-year Atlanta Falcons running back is promising a new dance to top the Dirty Bird in Super Bowl XXXIII. "Watch me when I score," he said. Notice the word "when." Not if. If ever a player were made for the Super Bowl, it's Anderson. Not only is he good enough to be Atlanta's top offensive weapon, but he's also savvy enough to understand what kind of stage the Super Bowl is. In an era when many athletes are uncomfortble in the spotlight, he relishes in it. Celebrity is nothing new for him because his father, James Anderson, was a bodyguard for celebrities.

ATLANTA -- Two of the Atlanta Falcons' top offensive players, running back Jamal Anderson and quarterback Chris Chandler, were in for only a quarter before they were removed from last night's 19-6 preseason loss. And that's partly why the Ravens were so dominant.The Ravens also hit Atlanta with a couple of blitzes, and Anderson (three carries, 16 yards) isn't close to game conditioning after being a training camp holdout."It felt pretty good to get out there to run through some plays and get some conditioning," Anderson said.
