PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles violated the first commandment of football last night:Never give hope to the hopeless.But the Birds let the dispirited, punching-bag Washington VTC Redskins hang around and hang around and hang around, and, sure enough, it was the Eagles who very nearly ended up getting hanged.They promised us they were past this.They promised the days of playing down to the level of the competition were over. They promised they were different now. They were done with letdowns following huge wins.

It's beginning to look as if Irv Pankey's 12-year career as an offensive tackle on the Los Angeles Rams is over.Pankey's 43-day holdout continued yesterday, and Rams coach John Robinson named Robert Jenkins the starter at left tackle and said Gerald Perry would also get some playing time in Sunday's season-opener against the Phoenix Cardinals.A starter since 1981, Pankey (Aberdeen) has said he wants something approaching center Tom Newberry's $750,000-a-year contract. If the Rams won't raise their $500,000-a-year offer, Pankey said, he wants to be traded.

IRVING, Texas -- While the game lacked the hype of last week's Monday night battle against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys were just as eager going into yesterday's game against Seattle -- and that eagerness proved unfortunate for the Seahawks.The Cowboys, embarrassed by their 31-7 loss to the Eagles, took out their frustration by holding the Seahawks to 62 yards of total offense on the way to a 27-0 win that gave the team a share of the lead in the NFC East. That broke a team record set in 1965, when Dallas allowed 63 yards to the Green Bay Packers.

The worst news the NFC could hear is coming out of Green Bay this week. The Packers' defense is back at Super Bowl-like efficiency, and that is ominous for the rest of the conference."

Overconfident, or weakness exposed? That will be one of the major themes for the Ravens' No. 2-ranked defense entering Sunday's game against Jacksonville.Defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis says his team wasn't talking a lot of trash after earning the No. 1 ranking a week ago, but was just overconfident.That's a matter of semantics, but here's the bottom line: The Bengals lit up the Ravens for 348 total yards and had two long drives in the second half as the then-No. 1-ranked defense couldn't protect a 17-point lead.

Pro football tends to be an organization game.The stable, well-run organizations with a plan and a philosophy tend to be winners -- such as Green Bay, San Francisco, Denver and Pittsburgh.Then there are the Minnesota Vikings. They seem intent on proving a little turmoil -- or maybe even a lot of it -- isn't a bad thing. In their case, it might have been a plus.The Vikings were in chaos much of the off-season. Nobody even knew who was going to own the team. When Tom Clancy's bid was accepted in February, president Roger Headrick tried to get the right to match it.Commissioner Paul Tagliabue spent weeks before rejecting Headrick's bid, but then Clancy withdrew because of financing problems.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Who said Ray Handley has no sense of humor?Handley, the first-year New York Giants coach, normally is as stoic as Gary Cooper. Every word he utters -- at least in the presence of reporters -- is measured, as if he is visualizing how his quotes will read on an opponent's bulletin board. This is no Buddy Ryan, randomly tossing off one-liners that serve to enrage the other side.So, in typical Handley fashion, he gave a non-inflammatory response to a suggestion that tomorrow night's game with the Eagles in Veterans Stadium figures to be markedly different from those that have taken place the past three seasons.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The scoreboard flashed one story, the medical report another.The Philadelphia Eagles won a game yesterday, Rich Kotite's first as head coach, 20-3, over the Green Bay Packers.But they lost a quarterback, Kotite's best, Randall Cunningham, who tore two ligaments in his left knee.A preliminary diagnosis by team physician Vincent DiStefano revealed that Cunningham had torn the medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments of the knee."At this point, the tears look complete," DiStefano said.

PHILADELPHIA -- Randall Cunningham is a jazz riff come to life. The rest of the National Football League pounds along to a head-banging, rock-and-roll beat. Cunningham skips and darts, stops and starts, goes up, down and all around. He is a ghost in the machine, the definition of improvisation. "Sometimes," Everson Walls was saying yesterday, "you can get mesmerized watching him."The Philadelphia Eagles have him on their side, and, brother, are they fortunate. They are a bratty, mediocre lot given to making bold pronouncements that, if not for Cunningham, would never stand up on Sunday.

Randall Cunningham can see the ways things are changing in the NFL these days.He knows this is a dangerous time to be a 31-year-old, injury-prone pro football player with a big contract who has had only one playoff victory.Entering his 10th season, Cunningham knows he may need to have a big season if he's going to attain his goal of finishing his career with the Philadelphia Eagles."I'm happy here," Cunningham said. "I don't want to go anywhere else. I feel in my heart that I've become part of Philadelphia."
