ASHBURN, Va. - In 1982, Joe Bugel, a Washington Redskins offensive coach, wanted to distinguish his beefy linemen from the rest of the team, make them feel significant. He could have bought them ties or taken them to dinner. But this was the NFL, so he gave them T-shirts depicting a nasty-looking razorback and christened his men "The Hogs." The line loved it. Twenty-two years later, Bugel and head coach Joe Gibbs have returned to the Redskins, bent on creating a new line in the image of the old one. Bugel calls the unit the "Dirtbags."

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson , who was uncatchable in setting a league mark for yards from scrimmage (2,509) and becoming the sixth player with a 2,000-yard rushing season, was the runaway winner of the Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year award. He is the first NFL player to finish with at least 2,000 yards rushing and 500 receiving (503). That earned the second-year pro 38 1/2 votes Wednesday from a nationwide panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Coach Joe Gibbs didn't want to deal with The Question yesterday.Near the end of his news conference after yesterday's 27-24 loss to the Phoenix Cardinals, he was asked, "Is he [Mark Rypien] your quarterback for the rest of the year, regardless?"Gibbs paused for about eight seconds, started to get down from the podium and said: "He went to a Super Bowl. I would think I'd want to stay with him."As Gibbs entered the locker room, he stopped in front of the coach's room and said to a reporter:"That's a ridiculous question, a ridiculous question.

Bill Bidwill may finally have gotten the message that he has to change the way he runs his football team.For almost two decades, the amiable owner of the Phoenix Cardinals has run his team like a mom and pop shop. He tried to be his own general manager and filled his scouting staff with cronies such as George Boone, who drafted such classic first-round busts as Steve Pisarkiewicz, Steve Little and Clyde Duncan.That's why even good coaches failed there. When the Washington Redskins won the Super Bowl last year, they had five former Cardinals coaches (Joe Gibbs, Wayne Sevier, Rod Dowhower, Emmitt Thomas and Jim Hanifan)

Washington -- Listening to Joe Bugel, it's easy to figure out he worked a long time for Joe Gibbs.Bugel, in just his second year as Phoenix Cardinals coach, has his team off to a 2-0 start, but he seemed to be tearing a page from the Gibbs book of poor-mouthing as he prepared to bring his team into RFK Stadium today to play Gibbs' 2-0 Washington Redskins.The winner will take sole possession of first place in the NFC East, but Bugel sounded as if his team didn't even deserve to be 9 1/2 -point underdogs against the Redskins.

HERNDON, Va. -- "Dexter Manley helped put three Super Bowl rings on guys' fingers," Joe Bugel was saying last night.The Phoenix Cardinals' head coach was saying that last week, too. His is one of the fingers Manley put the rings on in 1983, '84 and '88, when Bugel was the Washington Redskins' secretary of offense.With a 2-8 team, being beaten by 12.6 points a week, Bugel is trying to sell his management on giving the fallen pass-rusher a new home.Dexter needs one. NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue has reinstated him to play after a year of a "lifetime" banishment for drug abuse, but the Redskins have freed him "to get a fresh start somewhere else."

Jim Hanifan gets a second shot at a coveted record this year.Hanifan coached the offensive line of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1975, when the group that featured Dan Dierdorf and Conrad Dobler was trying to break the record the San Francisco 49ers had set in 1970 for allowing only eight sacks in a season.In the record books, the Cardinals wound up tying it by allowing eight, and the Miami Dolphins broke it in 1988, when Dan Marino was sacked seven times.But, as Hanifan said, the St. Louis linemen "still think they hold the record."

They each won three championships and lost one Super Bowl. Their highlights are always showing up on the Classic Sports Network. Just last Thursday, the cable network showed the highlights of the Raiders' double-overtime victory over the Colts in the 1977 AFC playoffs.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins, December's Team, apparently took a swig from the fountain of youth yesterday."I took a Geritol overdose this week," 32-year-old center Jeff Bostic said yesterday after the Redskins tore a few pages off the calendar and played the way they did in their glory days.Portrayed as a tired, aging team after losing two of three games in a 10-day span last month, the Redskins played as if they had young legs, crushing the Miami Dolphins, 42-20, at RFK Stadium.
