When competitors line up for tomorrow's New York City Triathlon, there will be a sea of compact, trim men and women preparing to swim 1,500 meters, bike 40 kilometers and run 10 kilometers. Most of the men will be probably be about 150 muscled pounds. Head and shoulders - and then some - above the rest of the competition will stand Rich Nelson and Richie Petitbon. So who invited the big guys? "We are the largest human beings in every race we go to," said Petitbon, of Thomas Point. Nelson, who is 6 feet 5 and 294 pounds, and Petitbon, 6-4 and 257, are so much bigger than most triathletes that there is a special classification for them - Clydesdale, the name for competitors 200 pounds and more.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Richie Petitbon said he thought his defense was special, but kept it to himself until their mission was completed last night."I thought we had a very good defense, but I didn't want to say much about it until this thing [season] was finished. When we shut out Buffalo in the first half, under some difficult circumstances, that was great defense. Buffalo was the best offensive team we had played against this year, and not letting them score in the first half is something."Petitbon is Washington's defensive coordinator and generally regarded as one of the best in the game.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins lost their last game of the season yesterday, but they may have saved coach && Richie Petitbon's job.After the Redskins finished with their worst record in 30 years (4-12), Petitbon gave one of those short answers that is typical of his taciturn style when he was asked if he expects to be back next year."I have no idea," Petitbon said.Although Petitbon has been the target of much criticism -- there has been speculation he could be replaced -- the odds are that Petitbon will be back for a second season.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Richie Petitbon was disappointed two months ago when he was bypassed by the Chicago Bears for their head coaching job.Petitbon played for George Halas' last championship team in Chicago in 1963, and the Bears' job was one of the few that he was interested in.Petitbon, 54, even turned down an interview for the Denver Broncos' job because he didn't think the situation was right for him. He was resigned to the fact he might be a career assistant."Time...

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins thought it couldn't get any worse than last year's nightmarish season.They were wrong.Their 21-19 loss to the New York Giants yesterday dropped the Redskins to 2-10, their worst record at the 12-game mark in 33 years., The gloomy and rainy conditions -- 43,384 braved the elements at RFK Stadium -- were an appropriate backdrop for the sorry day by the Redskins, who were burned for a pair of touchdown passes by Dave Brown and 106 yards rushing by Rodney Hampton.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Chuck Knox's quarterback move worked and Richie Petitbon's didn't.That was the difference in the Los Angeles Rams' 10-6 win over the Washington Redskins yesterday before 45,546 at Anaheim Stadium.Knox, in his 21st season as a head coach, brought in T. J. Rubley late in the third quarter for Jim Everett and he engineered the game's only touchdown drive -- although he did it with the help of what the Redskins said was an illegal play.Petitbon, in his first year as Redskins coach, benched Mark Rypien for Rich Gannon, but Gannon struggled and admitted he was rusty and bothered by the foot he broke on Oct. 4."
