John Fox takes a time-honored formula, a wicked defensive line and a journeyman quarterback into tonight's NFC championship game. For 19 weeks of the 2003 season, it has been the perfect blend for the Carolina Panthers. If Carolina's second-year coach can navigate his team past the Philadelphia Eagles and on to Houston for the Feb. 1 Super Bowl, it will underscore one of the most remarkable journeys in modern NFL history. Carolina was a 1-15 mess when Fox arrived in 2002, fresh from a stint as the New York Giants' defensive coordinator.

Look at who's the boss Keith Groller, The Morning Call Mike Shanahan to Washington and Bill Cowher to Cleveland seem like plausible scenarios, except that both the Redskins and Browns have new guys in charge - Bruce Allen in D.C. and Mike Holmgren in Cleveland - and Shanahan and Cowher aren't exactly the types who enjoy taking orders. If the Skins really want Shanahan as reported, they'd be wise to sign him now before Dallas implodes in the playoffs and Jerry Jones offers him half the state of Texas to lure him to the southwest corner of the NFC East.

Rogues, wenches, monks, fair maidens, outlaws, squires, princes and princesses -- all oblivious to the heat -- sashayed about the muddy, straw-covered streets of the 16th-century Tudor English village as a group of peasants danced with abandon near the town square.Visitors to this temporary land of merriment and mayhem, re-created in Anne Arundel County, were respectfully addressed milady, milord, lass or lad yesterday -- as Maryland Renaissance Festival tradition dictates -- by decree of the king and queen.

Atlanta Falcons Last season: 7-9, fourth place, NFC West. Coach: Dan Reeves (178-149-1), sixth year with Falcons, 22nd year in NFL. Story line: Is QB Michael Vick ready to be a starter and does he have enough weapons to be successful in this offense? Power game: With the addition of RB Warrick Dunn in free agency and power RB T. J. Duckett, the Falcons should have a reasonable running game. The only problem is that Dunn was promised 20 to 25 carries per game, a workload he is unlikely to realize with Duckett on board.

HOUSTON - John Fox had just brought his son to Napa, Calif., a day before training camp, and he and his wife had just purchased a home in the Bay area. But despite the regular season starting within two weeks, Fox abruptly quit his job as the Oakland Raiders' defensive coordinator in 1996. There were quite a few NFL coaches and administrators who questioned the move, but Fox wasn't about to let anyone second-guess his decisions or game planning, even if it was meddlesome owner Al Davis.
