Booed, embarrassed and besieged, Jim Kelly was well past denial, running smack up against resignation, when he faced a large media contingent Sunday in the bowels of Buffalo's Rich Stadium.What the Buffalo Bills quarterback said shocked reporters more than the intentional grounding penalty he drew on the goal line in the game's final minutes, or the interception he threw shortly after that.What Kelly said was, if he doesn't get the job done, he should be replaced by Todd Collins."I'm man enough to realize if you can't get it done, no matter what the position, it's time to move on to something else," he said.

Lightning rod for misfortune?Or mere victim of bad timing?For all the good things Jim Harbaugh has done on the football field, the newest quarterback of the Ravens is perhaps best known for two bizarre incidents off it.In 1992, he was verbally undressed on the sideline by Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka after throwing a critical interception that turned a game, if not an era.In 1997, with the Indianapolis Colts in the throes of a seven-game losing streak, he...

Reich feels left out in arms raceLOS ANGELES -- Buffalo Bills quarterback Frank Reich won't complain about playing behind starter Jim Kelly, but he does take exception to the "big arm" mind-set in the NFL."I don't have a rocket arm like a Jim Kelly or a John Elway," said Reich, who played at Maryland. "And I think that, deep down, more than anything, that's the thing that's a little unfair."I've always thought there's more to being a quarterback than having a big arm. I also think that teams always look for their starting quarterback to have a big arm. . . . I have a very average arm, but I think there are other strengths and intangibles that go into being a quarterback that I feel I can bring to the table.

While Ravens officials were preparing to open serious talks with the Jacksonville Jaguars on the signing of backup Rob Johnson as the team's franchise quarterback, former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly indicated yesterday that he has decided to come out of retirement and play for the Ravens.The stage is set for one of the team's biggest decisions since it moved to Baltimore two years ago and probably will create more in-fighting in the Ravens' front office over the team's future leader.

One day after saying goodbye to troubled running back Bam Morris, the Ravens shook up their offensive backfield further by announcing that 14-year veteran back Earnest Byner will not play here in 1998, and that quarterback Jim Kelly will be named the starter if he decides to end his one-year retirement by playing in Baltimore.Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda has been studying film of Kelly's final season in 1996 with the Buffalo Bills, where Marchibroda worked with Kelly from 1987-1991 as a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator.

The most significant game played in the NFL in the past decade matched -- believe it or not -- a 3-12 team against a 7-8 team in the 1988 season finale.That's when the Green Bay Packers went to Sun Devil Stadium with a 3-12 record to play the Arizona Cardinals.If the Packers had lost, they would have gotten the first pick in the draft and selected Troy Aikman in 1989.Instead, they upset the Cardinals, 26-17, and got the second pick. They bypassed those Sanders guys -- Barry and Deion -- to take Tony Mandarich, one of the biggest busts of the decade.

Although two successful starts in no way make a season, rookie safety Ralph Staten has given the Ravens an intriguing glimpse into the future.After stepping in to replace injured veteran Stevon Moore at strong safety a week ago, there is no denying that Staten is quickly establishing a presence in the secondary.First, there were his two interceptions that stood out in last week's 31-24 victory over Seattle. Yesterday, Staten made his presence known even more with some impressive hits.Like his takedown of Eddie George late in the first half of yesterday's 21-19 victory.
