BEREA, Ohio — For Trent Richardson, the pressure of following in Emmitt Smith's footsteps was inescapable. Richardson tried to carve his own path while playing running back at Escambia High School in Pensacola, Fla., which produced all-time NFL rushing leader Smith. But every time people heard that Richardson was from Pensacola, he said, their response was, "Oh, you got Emmitt Smith from there. " "You're playing at Emmitt Smith's high school, there's tremendous incentive to do the same thing, if not better," said Escambia track coach Derrick Boyd, Richardson's mentor.

A look at how the Ravens' draft was graded around the country: New York Times Grade: A-plus Comment: Several personnel men said the Ravens might have had the best draft of any team. St. Louis Post-Dispatch Grade: A Comment: Talk about adding firepower. The Ravens landed one of the top four RBs, one of the top three WRs and arguably the second-best QB. Atlanta Journal-Constitution Grade: A-minus Comment: Jamal Lewis will be a steal or a big-time bust. Dallas Morning News Grade: B Comment: Brian Billick got the running back and the receiver he wanted.

ATLANTA - Michael Vick resembles a video game superhero. Plunk a few quarters in his back and watch him take off down the field. The Vick factor will be both the answer and the question, depending on your rooting interest, tonight. For the St Louis Rams, containing the elusive Falcons' quarterback represents their most puzzling obstacle to advancing in this NFC division playoff game at the Georgia Dome. "It's like having a Michael Jordan or Tiger Woods," Atlanta coach Jim Mora said earlier this week of his ultimate offensive weapon.

KIRKLAND, Wash. -- They've both taken turns at Mike Holmgren's whipping post, and Seattle Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander and quarterback Matt Hasselbeck are only now starting to smile about their less-than-sentimental education. The lessons have paid off, particularly for Holmgren, whose vision of implementing a high-scoring offense finally materialized. "I have only daughters, so these players are like my sons. Over the past four or five years, they've really matured. Now I can hand them the car keys and not worry about it," Holmgren said.

Panthers (13-5) @Seahawks (14-3) Time, TV -- 6:30 p.m., chs. 45, 5 Line -- Seahawks by 3 1/2 Panthers offense vs. Seahawks defense -- With Carolina RB DeShaun Foster on injured reserve, the burden falls even more heavily on super WR Steve Smith, who accounted for 244 yards on 12 catches and three carries in last weekend's playoff win over the Bears. Few teams have been able to stop Smith, who has 11 games with 100 or more receiving yards this season, but the Seahawks will be able to concentrate on him even more.

The Seattle Seahawks face a serious shortage of healthy wide receivers today in San Francisco. The New England Patriots are scrambling to fill holes in their defensive backfield in St. Louis. Then there are the Dallas Cowboys, who are desperate for wide receivers and defensive backs in Cincinnati. As the NFL season arrives at the halfway point, injuries promise once again to dictate who goes to the postseason and what playoff seeding they take. A year ago, New England players missed more combined games because of injury (223)

I had this dream the other night in which I was taking a college course on sports and - egads - I got a 50 on my first quiz. I say that only to let you know that my knowledge might be a little lacking today. Of course, I also dreamt that I was floating down the river with Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now, an eerie Doors song playing in the background. So maybe dreams are just dreams. That preamble aside, we're moving on with preseason football rankings today. Running backs dominate the first two rounds of any fantasy draft and are generally viewed as the building blocks of a good offense.

Franklin's Scott Noble set a goal for himself to be a more complete running back, and just three games into the season, he has more than delivered. "Just with his ability to stop and make cuts, coaches watching his highlight films are amazed. As far as his work ethic in the weight room, that's tremendous," said his coach, Anthony Burgos. "Physically, Scott looks like a college freshman or sophomore who is playing his senior year of high school," Burgos said.

When the Steelers run Seattle's undersized defensive line will have to use its quickness to counter the Steelers' massive offensive line (averaging 317 pounds) in a classic matchup of speed vs. muscle. RB Jerome Bettis is still gold in the red zone, but he can't carry the team any longer. Seahawks MLB Lofa Tatupu is their enforcer. Edge: Even When the Steelers pass These aren't your parents' Steelers. With Ben Roethlisberger, they've transitioned to a passing team in the playoffs. They are getting almost 35 more yards a game from the pass.

I'm not feeling drivingly, burningly passionate about a single subject this week, so we're going to do some notes. I was happy to see Larry Johnson have another big performance Sunday as he takes over the starting tailback slot in Kansas City. I touted Johnson earlier this year, and he'll continue to thrive as a replacement for Priest Holmes. If you're in a keeper league, it's not too early to be thinking about next year. You can be confident that Johnson will get starter's carries in 2006.
