ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs has said several times since the start of training camp that the key to his team's success this season will be found in its offensive line. Though Gibbs has made similar remarks before during his long career coaching the Redskins, there might even be more truth to the statement this season.

ASHBURN, Va. -- In other years, Redskins Park might have had a different feel than it did yesterday heading into Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys at FedEx Field. Maybe it was the Indian summer weather that made it seem more like August than nearly November. Or the fact that the Washington Redskins were coming off a bye week and the three straight defeats that preceded it. After watching some of the upsets that occurred Sunday, Redskins receiver Santana Moss is hoping that his 2-5 team can do something similar against the suddenly revived Cowboys, 35-14 winners at Carolina on Sunday night.

Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said yesterday that he wouldn't be afraid to make changes to reverse his team's 0-2 start, but one change he is not ready to make is at quarterback. During his weekly day-after-game news conference at Redskins Park, Gibbs gave incumbent Mark Brunell a vote of confidence even though the veteran quarterback has not played well in losses to the Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys.

HERNDON, Va. -- Stan Humphries was a teen-ager when Phil Simms was drafted by the New York Giants in 1979."I remember watching him play on television," Humphries, 25, said yesterday. "He was a tough guy. I remember seeing him get hit a lot. I admire him for his toughness on the field. I think he's turned into a great quarterback."Since being drafted by the Washington Redskins in 1988, Humphries has seen Simms play four times, and his opinion hasn't changed.Simms led the New York Giants to four straight victories over the Redskins in 1988 and 1989.

IN LIEU OF a massive round of head coaching cuts, the NFL responded to its year of heightened offense by shuffling almost a third of its offensive coordinators in one direction or another. The league isn't headhunting this month as much as it's coordinator surfing. One week into the offseason (for 20 teams, anyway), nine offensive coordinators have lost their job, retired (the Detroit Lions' Sherman Lewis) or are preparing to move to another venue (the New England Patriots' Charlie Weis to Notre Dame)

ASHBURN, Va. -- For Lawrence Taylor, this will be something of a last hurrah.When the New York Giants visit RFK Stadium on Sunday night to play the Washington Redskins, it'll be the last game there for the linebacker who redefined his position.Taylor, who has announced he's retiring at the end of the year, has always said that RFK is one of his favorite places to play, and now it'll be special for a different reason.This time, the Giants aren't battling the Redskins for a division title, the way they have so many times in past years.

ASHBURN, Va. - During the NFL offseason, Coy Gibbs decided to end a career as a driver in NASCAR's Busch Series and get into coaching. His father, former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs, promptly tried to talk him out of it. "I think he just felt it was a hard life," said the younger Gibbs, 31. So imagine the son's surprise when the father, owner of a successful NASCAR team, confided some weeks later that he was contemplating coaching football again....

WASHINGTON -- When Charles Mann was asked last week about his most vivid memory of the Washington Redskins-Dallas Cowboys rivalry, he quickly said, "Dexter knocking Danny White out."For many followers of the Cowboys-Redskins rivalry, no further explanation is needed.Dexter Manley knocking out White in the 1982 NFC title game was one of the key plays in the Redskins' 31-17 victory that sent them on to the Super Bowl.What's interesting about Mann mentioning that play is that it happened the year before he was drafted by the Redskins, but he's heard about it so often that he almost feels he was there.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- There is no statute of limitations in the New York Giants' domination of the Washington Redskins.The Giants win here, they win there. They win with big-play offense and big-play defense. They win on sheer brilliance and sometimes on sheer luck.They beat the Redskins again yesterday. This time it was 21-10 -- a virtual blowout by this series' standards -- and nobody in the crowd of 75,321 left Giants Stadium surprised.That makes six in a row over the Redskins. More indicative of their dominance, the Giants have won nine of the last 10 non-strike meetings and 11 of the last 13.In a rivalry that is competitive in nature but lopsided in outcome, the Redskins know their role by heart.
