Buddy Ryan and the Philadelphia Eagles have been here before."Here" is 4-4 at the halfway mark of the NFL season. Ryan's Eagles reach a crossroads tonight at 9 (Channel 13) when they play the Washington Redskins (5-3) in a critical NFC East game at Veterans Stadium.Twice before in Ryan's five seasons the Eagles hit the halfway point at 4-4. The first time, in the strike-marred 1987 season, they finished 7-8. In 1988, they recovered from their midseason mediocrity to finish 10-6 and gain a playoff berth.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Eagles no longer talk about body bags and bounties."That was the last regime," coach Rich Kotite said last week. "I don't talk about body bags and things like that. I think that's ridiculous."Kotite, of course, doesn't have to identify the last regime.He was talking about Buddy Ryan, who has been gone from Philadelphia for three years, but still casts a large shadow over the franchise.When the wounded Washington Redskins play the Eagles at Veterans Stadium today, it will bring memories of the last time they went there without Mark Rypien as their starting quarterback.

PONTIAC, Mich. -- For 35 minutes, the Washington Redskins were befuddled by the Detroit Lions' run-and-shoot offense."We couldn't cope with it," coach Joe Gibbs said. "They ate us alive."The Lions ran up 35 points in the first 35 minutes although one of the touchdowns was a 34-yard interception return by defensive back William White.But the Redskins finally caught up with the run-and-shoot the final 25 minutes of regulation, holding them to three points while winning, 41-38, in overtime.The difference?

HERNDON, Va. -- Joe Gibbs says he knows where the fans would have wanted to see him yesterday if quarterback Mark Rypien had been injured seriously in the fourth quarter of a meaningless game against the New York Giants on Sunday.Looking at the flagpole out the window at Redskin Park, the Washington Redskins coach said: "I would have been [hanging] right from that flagpole right there. Hey, that's the risk you run. That's what I do for a living. Yes, this week, somebody can get hurt and they'll say I cost us the season.

East Rutherford, N.J.--For the Washington Redskins, playing the New York Giants is pro football's version of playing blackjack against the house.Giants coach Bill Parcells can count on his dealer, quarterback Phil Simms, to put between 17 and 27 points on the board.After all, Simms has helped produce between 17 and 27 points -- no more, no less -- the past 11 games he's played against the Redskins the past six seasons -- a remarkable feat of consistency.Parcells, who likes to play a safe, conservative game, counts on that being enough for his defense.

Tempe, Ariz. -- Today is the first day of the rest of Stan Humphries' life.The 25-year-old quarterback steps into the pro football pressure cooker tonight.When he makes his first regular-season start, for the Washington Redskins against the Phoenix Cardinals at Sun Devil Stadium tonight, he has a chance to win pro football's equivalent of a lottery ticket.If this is the start of a successful career, he can become rich and famous.If he doesn't live up to the expectations, he could become another Todd Blackledge, a quarterback who never became as good as he was supposed to be.For the Redskins, though, there is more anticipation than apprehension.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- On the first day of full squad workouts in this quaint college burg, the Washington Redskins were greeted with RTC sultry heat and swirling rhetoric.The heat they can live with. It was the rhetoric, though, that threatened to turn training camp into a sopping, melodramatic mini-series.Here it was, two weeks before the first preseason game and a whole 41 days before the start of the regular season, and the Redskins' hierarchy was breaking out in a cold sweat over the absence of quarterback Mark Rypien.

1 The Ravens had no pass defense. San Diego quarterback Stan Humphries and wide receiver Tony Martin had career days.2 The Ravens' pass rush was poor. The team can't survive without one, or it will have more days like yesterday.3 The Ravens failed to make big plays in crunch time. Despite the poor effort, they still had an opportunity to win in the fourth quarter, but failed miserably on their last two possessions.Pub Date: 9/29/97
