BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Jack Pardee is starting over again at age 58, in another league with high hopes and low budgets, in a city accustomed to off-Broadway brands.A proven commodity with a recognizable face, he is the right fit for both the upstart Birmingham Barracudas and the troubled Canadian Football League. Indeed, there are certain selling points Pardee brings with him to Legion Field that are impossible to mistake.There is the run-and-shoot offense, for instance, that has become his calling card.

Barry Switzer insists that it's easier to coach in the NFL than in college."It'd take two hours to talk about that," the Dallas Cowboys coach said last week. "I'd first start with [dealing with] the NCAA. I can start with 120 players vs. 50. I can start with every crisis and personal problem an athlete has [in college], he comes to see me. He doesn't walk through my door to say, 'Coach, I made an A on my test, or how's your day going.' He comes in there with a problem I've got to deal with."

SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) -- Atlanta Falcons coach Jerry Glanville was uncharacteristically quiet after Sunday's 47-27 victory over his former team, the Houston Oilers. Not so yesterday."Please let the players do the talking in this one. They're the ones who really deserve it," he said after the victory.The only dig Glanville had after his new team whipped the National Football League club he had coached for the previous five years was to give the game ball to Southern Methodist coach Forrest Gregg.

Last seasonThe Pittsburgh Steelers won the division, but were ousted in the first round of the playoffs at home by Buffalo. The Oilers got their usual wild-card spot -- they've made the playoffs six straight years, five times via the wild-card route -- and then folded in the second half in Buffalo.New coachesTechnically, this division doesn't have a new coach this year, but nobody's told Buddy Ryan that. He was named the defensive coordinator by owner Bud Adams after the collapse in Buffalo last year, but Ryan's acting as if he's already the head coach.

Wherever Cris Dishman has gone in his four-year Houston Oilers career, the spotlight was certain to follow. Two events tell what kind of spotlight it was:* In the 1989 season opener, as Minnesota tight end Carl Hilton lie on the Metrodome turf with a concussion, Dishman, a cornerback, stood over him, barking.* In a 1990 preseason game again in Minnesota, Dishman intercepted a pass and was rolling toward the end zone when he held out the football in a taunting gesture . . . and dropped it, costing the Oilers a touchdown.

HERNDON, Va. -- Jack Pardee is willing to say he still has fond memories of his days in Washington."I had a great time there," he said yesterday.That's about all he'll say about his days there.He came to Washington with George Allen's Over-the-Hill Gang in 1971 when football became a passion in the nation's capital.Retiring as a player at the end of the 1972 season, he came back in 1978 as Redskins head coach. He was so eager to return that he walked away from the Chicago Bears head coaching job.In his second year, he came within a Roger Staubach comeback of a division title.

Except for an appearance in the Super Bowl later this season by his Houston Oilers, Jack Pardee would enjoy nothing more than beating Jack Kent Cooke's Washington Redskins in RFK Stadium Sunday.That's because Cooke fired Pardee as Redskins coach after a 6-10 season in 1981, and it took Pardee almost a decade to get another head coaching job in the NFL.But Pardee proved he's a survivor throughout his distinguished career in football, both as a player and a coach. He beat cancer with a risky, 11-hour operation in the middle of his All-Pro career as a linebacker.
