PASADENA, Calif. -- It could be one of those heart-warming father-and-son Super Bowl stories.Linebacker Ken Norton Jr., the son of the former boxer, has a chance to become a champion in his own right Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys play the Buffalo Bills.But Norton Jr. won't have his father cheering him Sunday. He won't even talk to or about his father.They had a falling out last spring, and the rift hasn't been healed."I don't have much of a comment," he said last night, when he was asked about his father.

The Denver Broncos and Tampa Bay Buccaneers no longer wear orange. The Oilers left Houston for Tennessee. The Washington Redskins don't play at RFK Stadium. Eleven teams have new coaches. Chad Brown is in Seattle, Jeff George is in Oakland and Elvis Grbac is in Kansas City.Welcome to the NFL of 1997, where tradition is always up for sale and change is a constant.And in the era of player and franchise free agency, permanent seat licenses and corporate sponsors, the change is speeding up.The two-year rise of Carolina and Jacksonville -- both conference finalists last season -- has only increased the league's win-now mentality, even though the expansion teams started with big advantages that included bushels of draft picks and more money to spend in free agency.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The night before a game, Marv Levy tells them war stories. No, not football war stories -- real war stories, World War II war stories. Stories about Adolf Hitler and his field marshals, Rommel and von Rundstedt, and the fall of the Third Reich. Stories about Gens. Patton and Bradley and Eisenhower, or the occupation of Paris, or the battle led by a Russian officer whose name no one on the team could pronounce.Don't ask the Bills for the names or the dates or the locations in these stories; they can't remember them.

When Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas spotted owner Ralph Wilson in the end zone before last Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, he gave him a high-five, put his face mask up to Wilson's nose and said, "Are you ready?"Wilson was ready, and so were the Bills."He just happened to be somebody in the end zone that I knew, and I just wanted to make sure the crowd got involved in the game," Thurman said.With the wind taking away the Bills' no-huddle offense, Thomas, who sat out the loss to the Chicago Bears the week before with an injury, carried the team by running for 125 yards in 31 carries in the Bills' 21-11 victory over the Dolphins.

What's new: Center Chris Sedoris, who was released last Saturday, may be re-signed. The Redskins need insurance for veteran Jeff Uhlenhake, who is starting in place of Cory Raymer, who will be out four to six weeks with a fractured lumbar vertebra. Raymer suffered the injury when his truck overturned near Colonial Beach, Va., on Tuesday.Uhlenhake and the offensive line have been opening huge holes for Terry Allen, who last Sunday became the first Redskins running back to rush for three touchdowns in consecutive games.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Marv Levy did it once before, and he wasn't going to do it again.Asked to pose for photographers with the Super Bowl's Lombardi Trophy at the final round of media interviews yesterday, the Buffalo Bills coach took a rain check.Levy called it pretentious to pose with the trophy. He said he posed a year ago, before Super Bowl XXV, with the understanding the pictures would not be run until after the game -- and only if the Bills won.The pictures ran on the Saturday before the game, the Bills didn't win and Levy decided never again.

COLLEGE PARK -- Williamsport took out five years of state tournament frustration on an unsuspecting Havre de Grace squad, coasting to a 74-54 victory in a Class 1A semifinal last night at Cole Field House.The Warriors (18-6), ranked No. 10 in the metro area, were in the game for a quarter, but had no answer for a 25-9 pounding that included four three-pointers during a second-quarter blitz. The Wildcats (22-5), backed by their first 20-win season since 1969, will face Cambridge-South Dorchester in today's championship game at 1 p.m. Williamsport won its only championship in 1948, but it was the modern history that was rubbing a sore spot raw. The team had lost four semifinal games in the past five years, and senior twins Brad and Alan Moore were trying for a third straight time.

Green Bay linebacker Bryce Paup was feeling like the rest of America when the Buffalo Bills came calling last spring."I wanted to sign with a team that was capable of winning a championship," said Paup, who signed a $7.6 million contract with the Bills. "I didn't know if they had enough left to get back on top. But this team has a never-say-die attitude."One year after they were supposed to disappear from the NFL's elite following a 7-9 season, the old and stubborn Bills are only two games away from a fifth Super Bowl appearance.

By Team capsules and division predictions by Vito Stellino | September 2, 1994
Division predictionThe Bills, in their drive for five, should win this division easily unless Dan Marino makes a rapid recovery to lead a Dolphins challenge. The Patriots are still a year away, and the Jets and Colts will battle to stay out of the cellar. Assuming the Bills get the home-field advantage in January, it won't be easy to keep them out of the Super Bowl.1. Buffalo Bills1993 record: 12-4, first in division; beat Raiders in divisional playoff, beat Chiefs in AFC title game, lost to Cowboys in Super Bowl.

ATLANTA -- As if they needed any further delineation, the acute differences between Super Bowl coaches Jimmy Johnson and Marv Levy were in evidence again yesterday.Johnson, of the Dallas Cowboys, was intense and arrogant.Levy, of the Buffalo Bills, was low key and engaging.Johnson was self-consumed, operating at his self-promoting best.Levy was enlightened, humorous and reflective.Rarely have two individuals sharing the same stage been such profound opposites.This stage, of course, is Super Bowl XXVIII.
