PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Eagles want Jim McMahon back next season, and pony-tailed No. 9 wants to continue playing in Philadelphia.That doesn't necessarily mean Jimmy Mac will be back.According to Steve Zucker, the quarterback's agent, a healthier McMahon will also have to be made a whole lot wealthier if he is to remain an Eagle.Zucker said McMahon, whose one-year contract expires Feb. 1, would be seeking both "starter's money" and "an opportunity to be the starter" in his upcoming negotiations with the Eagles front office.

Maybe someday, Peyton and The Glove will go down with some of more famous player-inanimate object partnerships in NFL history. Johnny Unitas and the hightops. Lester Hayes and stickum. Jim McMahon and the headband. Conrad Dobler and the bite. Have you seen Manning's stats in the two games since he started wearing The Glove? They've never been better. Peyton and The Glove. "I was surprised to see it," Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said. "Because you just don't see quarterbacks wear gloves.

Monsters of the Midway Steve Svekis Sun Sentinel Based on performance in one season, the final four are the 1985 Bears, 1991 Redskins, 1973 Dolphins and the 1989 49ers. These teams had fewer than three losses and dominated their postseasons, including the Super Bowl. The 14-2 Redskins were the only such team whose regular-season opponents finished above .500 cumulatively. Still, they are far, far back of the 1985 Bears. With that smothering "46" defense, "Sweetness" and the funky QB known as Jim McMahon, Chicago lost only once in the regular season.

Make-up timeAndre Rison and Deion Sanders settled their stormy rivalry in a civilized manner yesterday -- they talked about it."We talked before the game and all during the game," San Francisco's Sanders said after the 49ers' 50-14 victory. "You know, how's the family and all that stuff. That's the way rivalries between great athletes should be."Rison, Atlanta's four-time All-Pro receiver, exchanged a flurry of punches with Sanders on the field in October when the 49ers beat the Falcons, 42-3, in Atlanta.

As we sit around palpitating about the undue process of NFL expansion, it's time for a confession. There is a bothersome aspect to the possibility, however remote, that we might get a franchise.It means we would actually have to watch NFL games.Who would want to do that?C'mon, admit it: It's one thing to lie around and watch, but you haven't come across more than a couple of truly interesting games, have you? Didn't think so. It's all Jets and Colts, or so it seems.OK, yes, it's different when you have your own team, when you're grabbed by the lure of the home team, the personalities, the politics, the fraternity of rooting.

Six years after Jim Mora started chasing Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers, his New Orleans Saints finally are in position to overtake them in the NFC West.The Saints are one of four unbeaten teams in the NFL and perhaps the league's biggest surprise a quarter of the way through the season. They take a two-game division lead into Atlanta Sunday, and some people are beginning to believe they can make that lead hold up.When New Orleans manhandled Minnesota 26-0 last Sunday, Vikings quarterback Wade Wilson called the Saints the best team he had faced this year.

COLLEGE PARK -- John Kaleo always has been too short to play quarterback. At least that's what his critics suggest.Major-college scouts ignored him despite an outstanding senior season at Bowie High nearly three years ago. And a lot of Division I-A scouts didn't come around the Montgomery College-Rockville campus last season, when Kaleo was named Junior College Player of the Year.So as Kaleo finished his first spring practice with the University of Maryland, guess what he still is hearing?

CARLISLE, Pa. -- Quarterbacks Cary Conklin and Chris Hakel couldn't celebrate the closing of the Washington Redskins' training camp yesterday.Conklin found out he's going to have a veteran looking over his shoulder this year, and Hakel discovered he soon will be looking for a new job.Those were the ramifications of the Redskins' trade yesterday, when they sent a conditional 1994 fifth-round draft pick to the Minnesota Vikings for veteran quarterback Rich...

THERE THEY sat. A sporting relic in a small glass box. The pair of crumpled, black, high-top cleats Johnny Unitas wore during his last game as a Baltimore Colt. Someone had left them on a table in the press box hours before the NFL's greatest quarterback was honored in a pre-game ceremony at Ravens Stadium yesterday. The sight of those cleats was enough to send a chill down your spine. At least mine, anyway. Everyone talks about that "Golden Arm," but that arm was only as good as Unitas' iron will, his competitive fire, his radar read of the defense and, yes, the feet.
