TAMPA, Fla. -- If you didn't know Jeff Hostetler before -- and, chances are, if you aren't from Davidsville, Pa., you didn't -- you know him now. In one evening, he got more TV time than Ted Koppel and Wolf Blitzer get in a week combined.Hostetler (Hoss to his friends) walked into your living room yesterday and just stayed, sort of like your brother-in-law, except in a football uniform. Hoss is, as if I needed to tell you, the quarterback of the New York Giants. They were the guys in blue who kept the ball for 40 minutes and 33 seconds yesterday -- in other words, for just about the whole Super Bowl party, from chips to dips.

When you get a new job, your bosses might hand you one of those training guides for new employees, some type of orientation packet that's usually pretty easy to toss without ever actually opening. Steve McNair got something like that from his new employer - a thick binder packed with a few hundred pages. Unlike the handbook you or I might get, McNair has to memorize his completely, and he's working with a pretty tight deadline. In a quiet period when most of the NFL is focused on squeezing all it can out of the offseason, McNair has been cramming for a pretty big test, one that will last four months and is packed with pressure and expectations at every turn.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Bill Parcells is a talking head. Phil Simms is barely talking. And the Giants -- the Giants of Ray Handley and Jeff Hostetler -- are talking about another Super Bowl.It has been an eventful, almost tumultuous, seven months since that January night in Tampa, Fla., when Scott Norwood's kick went right, and wrong, for the Buffalo Bills, giving the Giants their second championship in six seasons.The team, or at least half of it, was sold to hotel magnate Robert Tisch in February.

Starting quarterback Gus Frerotte has been the target of jokes by national talk-show hosts.Starting wide receiver Michael Westbrook has been chastised once again for his immaturity and short temper.Veteran cornerback Darrell Green, the team's leader, seems to be losing his patience with Westbrook and other young players who are hurting the team with untimely mistakes.However, coach Norv Turner keeps displaying patience with his players.That is the state of the 6-5-1 Redskins entering today's 1 p.m. game with the 2-10 St. Louis Rams at Jack Kent Cooke Stadium.

Then you hear him say he's been preparing for this game for 40 years.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Win one, lose one. The New York Giants twice danced that unproductive stutter-step during the meaningless preseason and they've opened their regular season the same way.Whether you dwell on their three turnovers, eight penalties, inconsistent offense or consistently poor field position, the Giants simply did not give themselves enough chances to win yesterday.That's why they lost, 19-13, to the Los Angeles Rams at Giants Stadium. And only a late touchdown in the final two minutes drew the final score that close.

PHILADELPHIA -- They've walked, talked and at times eve played like champions. But the reality for the Philadelphia Eagles is that in three tries over four seasons they've failed to win a playoff game.It's a fact that isn't lost on Philadelphia tight end Keith Byars."I don't want to forget the feeling of losing in the playoffs, 'N because I don't want to feel like that ever again," Byars said. "For us, it's not important making the playoffs; it's important winning the playoffs."So, what the Eagles did yesterday was gain a little momentum on the way to realizing their goal, defeating the New York Giants, 20-10, before 64,266 at Veterans Stadium.

Dan Marino, the golden-armed quarterback of the Miami Dolphins, cashed in yesterday when he agreed to perhaps the richest contract in NFL history.Neither Dolphins management nor Marino would release details of the contract other than it was a five-year extension of his current pact which will pay him $1.6 million this year.Several newspapers reported yesterday that Marino and his agent, Marvin Demoff, negotiated a contract for $25 million, including a $3 million signing bonus."This gives security for my family," said Marino, 29, who has three sons, ages 2 to 5. "As a dad, you always want that for your kids.

Indianapolis (1-0) at N.Y. Jets (0-1)Time: 1 p.m.Line: Colts by 5.Record vs. spread: Colts 0-1; Jets 0-1.Series record: Colts lead 30-21.Last meeting: Colts won, 17-10, in second meeting of '95.Last week: Colts beat Cardinals, 20-13; Jets lost to Broncos, 31-6.Outlook: Colts, led by Harbaugh, overcame a 21-point deficit to beat Jets at Meadowlands last season. New York's defense hasn't changed measurably since, and pass rush might be less effective with DT Erik Howard out for season and DE Marvin Washington hurt.
