PHILADELPHIA -- It couldn't have been easy for Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Seth Joyner to do what had to be done. Surely, facing a ballcarrier in the open field, one on one, would be child's play compared to facing Rich Kotite, one on one, after that now-infamous interview in Sunday's New York Times.In that article, Joyner was quoted as saying that the thing he cared about more than anything else was winning. Yesterday, he proved it.First, he took it upon himself to do something about the intolerable situation he had created.

It was business as usual when Barry Sanders of the Detroit Lions and Ricky Watters of the Philadelphia Eagles skipped their team's respective minicamps in what amounted to mini-holdouts.Although both players were fined and annoyed their coaches because they're under contract for the 1997 season, it's a normal tactic for players trying to get new contracts. Sanders has never been a big fan of minicamp anyway.It was a sign of the times, though, when the Arizona Cardinals effectively locked out Seth Joyner from their minicamp.

PHILADELPHIA -- If this is Redskins Week, the Philadelphia Eagles have no time for controversies, thank you.Seth Joyner? Old news.Buddy Ryan? Ancient news.Designer suits? Now you're talking business."I just got these things, and I want to go try some of them on," Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham said, trying to pry himself loose from a pack of journalists around his locker yesterday.Four days before the Eagles renew their rivalry with the Washington Redskins at Veterans Stadium, Cunningham spent part of his lunch hour slipping into expensive-looking suit jackets.

Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas, who led the league in combined yardage for the third straight year, was selected yesterday as The Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player. Thomas had 39 votes, easily outdistancing Bills teammate Jim Kelly and college teammate Barry Sanders.Earlier this week, Thomas was voted Offensive Player of the Year.Thomas felt the awards were vindication for all the smaller players in the league. Thomas is 5 feet 11 and 198 pounds."I was always one of those kids, hey, you dare me to do something -- dare me to jump over a barbed wire fence -- I'd try," he says.

The real question about today's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants is whether the action on the field can match the action in the loser's locker room after the game.The loser's locker room is likely to be a lively place.That's when the losing team will play The Blame Game.Nobody is better at it than the players on these two teams. After they both lost last weekend, the players had no trouble figuring out what went wrong.It wasn't their play. It was the coaches' fault.

Philadelphia -- Rich Kotite swivels animatedly in the chair behind his desk, wearing a navy-blue "CBS Sports" baseball cap and chewing on a thick cigar. The coach of the Philadelphia Eagles is talking about what has been gained, not what was lost, in a 9-6 season that will conclude with today's 4 p.m. visit by the Washington Redskins.He is upbeat, almost glowing. His is definitely not a hot seat."I'm not going to let the disappointment of missing the playoffs in any way deter from the accomplishment this football team has made," he says.

They've broken up the old gang in Philadelphia that made the Eagles such an entertaining team a few years ago.Owner Norman Braman has sold the team, coach Buddy Ryan is in the desert in Phoenix, Jerome Brown died in an auto crash, and most of the big-name players -- including Reggie White, Keith Jackson, Seth Joyner and Clyde Simmons -- have scattered to the four winds.When they were all together in Philadelphia in the late 1980s, there was no team that created such a storm off the field but was so disappointing on it.Even though they never managed to win a playoff game, they were always a high-profile team noted for making headlines, whether it was Mr. Ryan treating the owner with disdain before he got fired or the defensive players treating the offensive players as if they were second-class citizens.

EAGLES (0-0) at GIANTS (0-0)Time: 1 p.m., Ch. 45Line: Giants by 3.Key injuries: Eagles: RB Charlie Garner (rib) is out; QB Randall Cunningham (elbow), CB Mark McMillian (hip) are questionable.Outlook: Dave Brown might be the least-known person ever to start at quarterback for the New York Giants. The Giants' defense might be the most vulnerable it has been since before Lawrence Taylor arrived. Randall Cunningham led the Eagles to a 4-0 start last season before missing the rest of the season with a knee injury.
