Rex Ryan sees a lot of his own team in the Cincinnati Bengals. A tough running offense? Check. A solid offensive line? Check. A stifling defense? Yep, check there, too. "We're mirror images of each other, so it's going to be an old-fashioned, knockdown, dragout," the New York Jets coach said Thursday. "This is going to be a man-on-man type challenge." The Jets are ranked No. 1 in the NFL in overall rushing, and have relied on the run more than any team in the league with their 550 attempts.

The Orioles' 1990 season turned out to be the mirror image of 1989. Instead of coming close to winning the division championship, Baltimore's team finished a disappointing fifth.That did not stop 2.4 million fans from pouring through the turnstiles. What fans witnessed was a temporary setback. That frequently happens to a young, rebuilding team.In some respects, the Orioles of 1990 were more talented than the near-miss Orioles of 1989. The difference: Last year's team played better; unexpected injuries and poor performances dogged this year's team.

CINCINNATI -- The same truck that ran over the Ravens in October rumbled through Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday and flattened them again. Same unrelenting pass rush. Same playmaking cornerbacks. Same trademark Bengal stripes. As if to prove the first time was no fluke, the Cincinnati Bengals derailed the Joe Flacco Express for the second time in a month. They turned the Ravens' offense into roadkill and Baltimore's 4-4 season into a mystery novel. "If you look at the tape, they've played well all year," Flacco said after Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Bengals.

Navy's opponent in the Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 20 runs its own option offense, had an 8-4 record like the Midshipmen and has gone to a bowl game the past four years just like the Mids. The University of Utah, which accepted a bid to play in the Poinsettia Bowl yesterday, is not exactly a mirror image, however. Poinsettia Bowl Navy vs. Utah, San Diego, Dec. 20, 9 p.m., ESPN, 1090 AM

"Joseph McCarthy: Reexamining the Life and Legacy of America's Most Hated Senator," by Arthur Herman. Free Press. 416 pages. $26.Shouldn't Joseph McCarthy benefit from the reassessment of the Cold War now taking place with the aid of the newly opened archives in the former Soviet Union? That question is posed by Arthur Herman, a historian at George Mason University and the Smithsonian Institution. "Joseph McCarthy: Reexamining the Life and Legacy of America's Most Hated Senator" intends to show, first, that McCarthy was a pretty capable anticommunist after all -- not simply the blowhard people think he was; and, second, that the "ism" that bore his name was not as dire as it is made out to be.The book is engrossing, a smoothly written and (mostly)

As another wave of Joe Gibbs' offensive terror sweeps over the NFL this season, carrying the Washington Redskins to 7-0 heights, you are reminded of another team with tidal wave force.You are reminded of John Riggins slamming through openings created by the original Hogs, of Joe Theismann slinging touchdown pass after touchdown pass, of Joe Washington stutter-stepping his way through the heart of a defense.Remember the 1983 Redskins?It was probably the best of Gibbs' three Super Bowl teams, yet, ironically, it was the only one that didn't win its last game.

NEW YORK -- Do you know who you are? What you really look like? Does your mirror tell the truth?Of course it doesn't. It conceals things by distorting them. Hold a newspaper up to a mirror. Can you read it? Not unless you can read backward.Hold up your watch. Can you tell the time? Not unless your eyes and mind can effortlessly reverse the numbers to counter the mirror's effect. Mirrors do elfin things like this. They obscure the plain, encode the clear.Most people don't think about it much.

Here's a scary thought that occurred to me during the first half of the Ravens' 30-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Friday night: Is it just me, or does it look like Steve McNair has begun to morph into Kyle Boller instead of the other way around? That would be heresy, of course. McNair is a proven winner who was acquired to lead the Ravens out of the wilderness, and he looked like every bit the savior during his opening drive in the first preseason game against the New York Giants. He also was acquired -- at least ostensibly -- to aid in the proper development of young Kyle, who was thrown to the wolves too soon and only now seems to be getting his feet underneath him. So, which quarterback settled for the short routes for two quarters Friday and which one actually succeeded in throwing the ball downfield?

YOU'RE A person, and you have a cat. That's all there is to it, right?Not according to cat psychologist Dr. Myrna Milani."Cats are four-legged, fur-covered mirror images of ourselves," she says. "The image a cat throws back is more complex than what Fido throws back. The cat represents that part of ourselves we have the most difficulty with, the enigmatic side of ourselves."Milani probes the feline psyche and its mysterious yin and yang with humans; she's studied cat behavior for years.She's written "The Body Language and Emotion of Cats" (Morrow, $17.95)

I saw a production of My Children! My Africa! at Studio Theatre in Washington the other night, and it broke my heart. In 1984, Athol Fugard wrote a play about racial tensions exploding at a high school in apartheid South Africa. His drama is a powerful lament about the shameful waste of bright, shining young lives. If you go My Children! My Africa! runs through Oct. 21 at the Studio Theatre, 1501 14th St. N.W., Washington. 8 p.m. Wednesday-Friday; 2 p.m., 8 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m., 7 p.m. Sunday.

Roman numerals often do nothing but confuse - how many people intuitively understand what Super Bowl XXXIX symbolizes? - but Corporate Office Properties Trust got it right. In naming its latest project Gateway Exchange II, the company is telling prospective tenants precisely what the structure will be - a mirror image of the office tower already on the grounds. When II is completed, the structures will stand as bookends at the entrance to Columbia Gateway, the 584-acre business park in Columbia.

RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginia Gov. Mark Warner has delivered the PowerPoint demonstration so many times that he knows precisely which chart best explains why a state known for its hands-off-my-wallet leanings needs to raise taxes by $1 billion. It's the chart with the two upwardly slanting lines that never meet, the one that illustrates a budget gap swelling year after year unless something drastic is done. Except for the Commonwealth of Virginia label at the top, the chart could easily be an illustration of Maryland's finances, where a similar gap infects state projections.

THE CONGRESSMAN thought it would be easy to find a community willing to honor a soldier awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Naming a post office for the veteran seemed a suitable tribute. But Roscoe G. Bartlett found surprising opposition at not one, not two but in three Howard County communities before trying an end-run at Savage: Without local consultation, he got the House of Representatives to rededicate the town post office. When surprised residents objected to Mr. Bartlett's action, the four-term congressman curtly challenged their patriotism.
