When the late George Halas, the founding father of the Chicago Bears, was asked at age 82 what gave him the greatest satisfaction of his career, he replied, "The 73-to-nothing."No explanation was needed.It is still the most famous score in the history of pro football and possibly in all of sports.Fans don't tend to remember scores -- can you remember the score of the blowout the Denver Broncos suffered in the Super Bowl last January? -- but they remember 73-0.That was the score of the Chicago Bears' victory over the Washington Redskins in the 1940 championship game.

ASHBURN, Va. - Sammy Baugh, Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theismann and Doug Williams. Rookie Patrick Ramsey is hoping to add his name to that list of successful Washington Redskins quarterbacks. But Ramsey, who was impressive in his NFL debut with a 20-for-34, 268-yard effort with two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 31-14 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, knows the adoration of fans can turn into venom if he should fail in his next outing. "I'm very happy that people are accepting of my performance," said Ramsey, a first-round draft choice who will make his first NFL start against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at FedEx Field.

WASHINGTON -- Mark Rypien had seen this coming.He looked at the Atlanta Falcons' blitz-crazy defense last week and saw opportunity for a breakthrough passing game. He looked at Atlanta's penchant for taking risks in the secondary and saw a quarterback's dream.Yesterday, the Washington Redskins' oft-maligned quarterback lived that giddy dream.In what seemed a frolic in the park for Rypien, and a funeral dirge to the black-clad Falcons, the unbeaten Redskins torched Atlanta 56-17 before a rain-splattered crowd of 52,641 at RFK Stadium.

The Houston Bowl was guaranteed a classic run vs. pass matchup yesterday when Texas Tech accepted an invitation to play Navy on Dec. 30 at Reliant Stadium. In an intriguing pairing, the Midshipmen will match their old-school, No. 1-ranked rushing attack against Texas Tech's new-wave, No. 1-ranked passing game triggered by quarterback B.J. Symons. "It will be a tremendous challenge to play Texas Tech," said Navy coach Paul Johnson, the day after his team methodically romped past rival Army, 34-6, to finish the regular season at 8-4. "They traditionally have one of the best offenses in the country, and they have a ton of great athletes."

Sept. 2, 1999: Relieved? You bet, Cal Ripken Jr. says after hitting the 400th home run of his career in the Orioles' 11-6 over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. "It's a little bit of pressure off me," says Ripken, 39, who gets two curtain calls at Oriole Park. "You don't hit home runs by trying to think about it. " Sept. 7, 1985: "The season isn't over, for crying out loud," Maryland football coach Bobby Ross says after the No. 7 Terps fall to No. 19 Penn State, 20-18, in their opener before a sweltering crowd of 50,750 at Byrd Stadium.

LANDOVER -- Washington Redskins cornerback Darrell Green added another mark of longevity, but he will be keeping memories of yesterday's 41-35 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys short. Green entered his club-record 17th season, surpassing the 16 seasons each played by Hall of Famer Sammy Baugh and former linebacker Monte Coleman. He probably should have realized how the day would end, however, after yesterday's program had him on the cover with his name misspelled as "Darryl."
