Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs won't have much to say to Patrick Ramsey today. Not because Gibbs dislikes his quarterback or thinks that any last-minute advice for today's regular-season opener against the Chicago Bears at FedEx Field in Landover at 1 p.m. would jinx him. To Gibbs, the time for chatting is past. "I think the talking's pretty much done," he said. "It's down to playing." In his fourth season as a pro, Ramsey is entering what could be the watershed moment of his career.

IT HAS already been another tough week in the Redskins wing of the palatial Schmuck Estate, where the demotion of quarterback Patrick Ramsey was met with a level of outrage normally reserved for lame-duck parental discipline or a sudden rise in the price of Coors Light. "If you don't crush Joe Gibbs for this, I'm never going to speak to you again," said the resident Redskins fan. I shudder to think what life might be like without the daily lectures on the superiority of Dave Matthews over Bruce Springsteen (I repeat, where did I go wrong?

ASHBURN, Va. - Before Washington Redskins fans start dreaming about a fast turnaround, quarterback Patrick Ramsey wants them to know that he is not this team's savior. "I go out there to try to play well, but I know that everyone around me has to play well to be successful," Ramsey said. "In no way is it going to be, `Hey, Patrick goes in there, and we start winning games because of him.' It's not going to be that in any way. I think it's going to [take] our team playing well together as a unit, playing well and playing consistently."

LANDOVER - The Washington Redskins opened the season and a quarterback debate yesterday. The Redskins beat the Chicago Bears, 9-7, in a sluggish game before 90,138 at FedEx Field, but the big question afterward was which quarterback will start at Dallas against the Cowboys next Monday night - Patrick Ramsey or Mark Brunell. Ramsey left the scoreless game four minutes into the second quarter when Chicago linebacker Lance Briggs sacked him around his neck. When he left, Ramsey - who was diagnosed with a neck sprain - was 6-for-11 for 105 yards, one interception, two sacks and one lost fumble.

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins running back Stephen Davis hasn't missed a game in nearly two seasons, and he's not about to buck the trend. Davis vowed yesterday that his injured right knee won't prevent him from starting for the Redskins when they play host to the New Orleans Saints at 1 p.m. Sunday at FedEx Field. "No doubt," Davis said of his playing status against New Orleans. "Right now, I've just got to go through the pain and get rehab on it and do my best." Davis sprained a ligament in his right knee Sunday during Washington's 31-14 win against the Tennessee Titans.

ASHBURN, Va. - Besides their days at the University of Florida and an affinity for playing under center, Washington Redskins coach Steve Spurrier and quarterback Danny Wuerffel can agree on one more thing. Wuerffel will not unseat Patrick Ramsey as Washington's starting quarterback. After a well-attended morning practice at Redskins Park yesterday, Spurrier stated in no uncertain terms that Ramsey's status as the team's No. 1 quarterback would not change despite the return of Wuerffel, who started four games for Washington last season.

ASHBURN, Va. - Another day, another barrage of second-guessing for Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs. Fans and local sports talk radio stations have had more than 48 hours to digest Gibbs' decision to use the 25th overall pick of the NFL draft on Auburn quarterback Jason Campbell, but time did little to stem the tide of questions aimed at Gibbs. When NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced Washington's pick of Campbell on Saturday, some fans at the team's draft-day party at FedEx Field booed.

ASHBURN, Va. - A year older and a year wiser, Washington Redskins coach Steve Spurrier is shying away from the kinds of statements and moves that once incited an opposing coach to call him "Steve Superior." Last season, the then-rookie coach staked his arrival from the University of Florida by boldly predicting that Washington would capture the NFC East title. He also stocked the roster with former Gators under the belief that they could re-create the mystique that helped Florida win seven Southeastern Conference titles and a national crown.

ASHBURN, Va. - Here they go again. The Washington Redskins have seen this pattern before. Their new quarterback sparkles in his debut and guides the team to victory before faltering badly in two straight losses. It happened with Shane Matthews when he powered Washington to an eight-point win against the Arizona Cardinals in the season opener before two consecutive setbacks forced Matthews to the bench. Patrick Ramsey - replacing an injured Danny Wuerffel - led the Redskins to a 17-point rout of the Tennessee Titans before back-to-back losses to the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers earned him a demotion, too. So as Wuerffel, coming off a mistake-free effort in Sunday's 20-17 upset of the St. Louis Rams, prepared for Washington's game against the Dallas Cowboys today at Texas Stadium at 4:05 p.m., did he have any concerns about the troublesome trend?

ASHBURN, Va. - The change is undeniably noticeable. Yes, the Washington Redskins are 3-1 for the first time since 1999, which is also the last time the team went to the playoffs. And yes, quarterback Patrick Ramsey - in just his second year in the league - leads the NFC with 1,036 yards passing. But the most stunning transformation has occurred on the sideline. It turns out that coach Steve Spurrier, the architect of the pass-happy Fun 'N' Gun offense, likes to run as much as he likes to pass.

LANDOVER -- Several Washington Redskins had characterized last week's 20-point loss to the Carolina Panthers as a wake-up call. Last night against the New England Patriots, in the second preseason game for both teams, the Redskins showed that they were still asleep. New England scored 13 points -- including an 85-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Tom Brady to receiver David Patten -- on its first two possessions, and Bethel Johnson took advantage of a napping special teams unit on a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the third to lift the Patriots to a 20-13 victory before 68,980 at FedEx Field.
