HERNDON, Va. -- His right leg is strong from a summer's rest. His mind is clear of the debris that clutters the brain cells of most place-kickers. His job is safe and secure.All is right in Chip Lohmiller's world these days.All except for the golf, that is. The golf has not gone well, not since he played in a celebrity tournament at Lake Tahoe last summer."I haven't played much lately," the Washington Redskins place-kicker said yesterday. "After the tournament, I tossed my [golf] bag in the closet."

Brian Billick said that a number of scenarios could play out this season at the Ravens' backup quarterback spot. The most likely is that Chris Redman will be the mop-up man, with Randall Cunningham coming in should Elvis Grbac go down with an injury. Redman, a second-year pro who runs the scout team offense and gets the No. 2's practice repetitions, was 8 when Cunningham came into the NFL in 1985. The 16th-year pro is flattered that the Ravens think he can step in with less practice work than afforded a normal backup and understands the need to nurture Redman.

MINNEAPOLIS -- For Chip Lohmiller, the trip to the Super Bowl is just like going home -- primarily because he is home."I just went to my house and sat on the couch and watched TV," the Washington Redskins place-kicker said yesterday.Lohmiller, who grew up in Minneapolis and kicked at the Metrodome for the University of Minnesota, had a few players, including Russ Grimm and Jeff Bostic, to his house to play pool Tuesday night.Lohmiller isn't going downtown to any of the nightspots during Super Bowl week.

WASHINGTON -- As general manager Charley Casserly walked out of the Washington Redskins' locker room yesterday, he reminded kicker Chip Lohmiller of what he called "the Mark Moseley story.""In the 1983 [NFC] championship game, he missed four field goals, but with the score tied 21-21, he kicked one to win it with about three minutes left. Tell them that one," he said.Casserly was referring to the 24-21 victory over the San Francisco 49ers that season.In yesterday's 13-7 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, Lohmiller was wide left on his first four attempts, from 51, 48, 41 and 50 yards, but then made two from 33 and 39 yards in the fourth quarter to provide what turned out to be the winning margin.

HERNDON, Va. -- It's a game Chip Lohmiller would like to forget.In the fifth game of his rookie season in 1988 against the New York Giants, he missed an extra point in the first period and shanked a 36-yard field-goal attempt in the final period.The result was a frustrating 24-23 loss for the Washington Redskins to the Giants.Lohmiller still calls it the worst moment of his three-year career with the Redskins."It was right at the beginning of my career. It was a long time ago. I can still remember it, but I don't think about it too often.

WASHINGTON -- Chip Lohmiller's cubicle in the Washington Redskins' dressing room is the closest to the exit, which for many kickers, would be appropriate.After all, who wants to hang around if you're the guy who missed a 33-yard gimme field goal that could have won the game in regulation?But, in a profession where you are only as good as your last boot, Lohmiller has no reason to take off early, for his last boot yesterday gave the Redskins a hard-won 16-13 overtime victory over the Houston Oilers.

WASHINGTON -- Chip Lohmiller wasn't discouraged when he missed a 54-yard field-goal attempt with 4 minutes, 16 seconds left in the game yesterday."I had a lot of confidence in our defense, and thought I would get another chance," Lohmiller said.On the first play after his miss, Brad Muster fumbled and Todd Bowles recovered for Washington to set the stage for Lohmiller's 35-yarder that gave the Redskins a 10-9 victory over the Chicago Bears yesterday.Lohmiller talked coach Joe Gibbs into giving him a shot at the 54-yarder because he thought it was within his range.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Chip Lohmiller knows how to throw a grand homecoming party.The Washington Redskins were battered and banged up, but not beaten yesterday because Lohmiller kicked five field goals, including a 49-yarder with 1:09 left, in the Metrodome where he first made a name for himself as a kicker for the University of Minnesota.It gave the Redskins a tense 15-13 victory even though Minnesota's defense overwhelmed the Redskins' makeshift offensive line and hit quarterback Mark Rypien on virtually every pass play.

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.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- With the Washington Redskins' scrimmage against the Pittsburgh Steelers tied, 19-19, Wednesday night, Chip Lohmiller lined up for what he thought would be the deciding kick on the final play of the scrimmage.But Lohmiller, who already had made four field goals, never got a chance to kick the fifth.The Steelers, who thought the scrimmage had ended on the previous play, were walking off the field as Lohmiller lined up.The Redskins felt there was no point arguing that they had another play left, so they left without trying the kick.

He had the shot at pulling off the biggest upset of the season.
