A side effect of journalism on its practitioners is their stoic acceptance of the tragedies they often encounter. Reporters and editors aren't alone in this, of course. Like police officers and emergency room doctors, journalists instinctively adopt attitudes of dispassionate professionalism in the face of human pain. But as with all human beings, that pain can break through the toughest of protective shields. So it was on Dec. 6 when journalists coming to work at The Sun learned from their newsroom colleagues that the family of Steve Young, the newspaper's deputy copy desk chief, had been devastated by an early morning home fire.

HOW THE GAME WAS WON The Ravens earned the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye with ball-control offense and ball-hawking defense. Their offense dominated time of possession, controlling the clock for 36 minutes, 21 seconds (compared to the Bills' 23:39). Their defense scored the Ravens' only touchdown when cornerback Chris McAlister returned an interception 31 yards for a score in the third quarter. DOMINATING DEFENSE The NFL's top-ranked defense has held six of its past seven opponents to one or no touchdowns.

What's new: Redskins running back Terry Allen hung up on a conference call with the San Francisco media this week after reporters insisted on asking him about his past history of knee injuries.

It was an amateur performance by a Hall of Fame quarterback. In his role as an NFL analyst, Steve Young had the right to savage quarterback Daunte Culpepper during Monday night's ESPN telecast of the Miami Dolphins' 13-10 loss to the New York Jets. Provided he was telling the truth. But while painting the picture of an injured player who was "just floating" and had "lost control of his professional career," Young said that Culpepper also was missing team meetings. The incorrect accusation infuriated Culpepper so much that he gimped over from a Dolphin Stadium club suite to confront Young at halftime.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Dan Marino and Steve Young, two of the greatest quarterbacks in recent NFL history, sat side by side, and for the first time, discussed their careers as Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees, dishing out a number of jokes at each other's expense along the way. While both displayed total control on the field, the duo used humor to ease their emotion over being the headliners in the Class of 2005, which also includes quarterback Benny...

INDIANAPOLIS - Team success or individual records. If you were to ask Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning which meant more to him, team goals would trump individual aspirations every time. As he closes in on two NFL single-season records - Dan Marino's 20-year-old mark for touchdown passes and Steve Young's 10-year-old standard for passing efficiency - talk about the Colts' 11-3 record and second straight AFC South championship have been pushed to the background. Manning has thrown 47 touchdown passes this season and needs two more over the Colts' final two games to break Marino's record of 48, which was set in 1984.

He turns simple plays into exotic runs, changes momentum and field position with dashes of improvisation, and leaves defenders grasping at air. Quarterback Michael Vick's next attempted act of transference will be to get the streaking Atlanta Falcons past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday and into first place in the NFC South. It won't be easy, but it could go a long way toward determining whether Vick is a viable Most Valuable Player candidate in his second NFL season or merely a candidate in waiting.

The 2000 NFL playoffs are already conspicuous for two things: an abundance of dictatorial defenses and the lack of glamour quarterbacks. That combination could make for a very defensive conclusion to the playoffs, which completes its second round of play today. The Tennessee Titans and Ravens, ranked 1-2 in total defense, head a list of dominating defensive teams in the postseason. The list also includes the New York Giants (fifth) and Miami Dolphins (sixth). Meanwhile, the top three offensive teams (St. Louis, Denver and Indianapolis)

SALT LAKE CITY - The Swatch watches at the downtown mall still have their Sydney Games faces on, but in the tall office tower around the corner, clocks already are set to Olympics 2002 time. With almost pathological precision, the people of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee can tell you how many days remain until Feb. 8, 2002, when the Olympic flame will illuminate their city. Tickets go on sale next Tuesday for the Games, and crews are putting the finishing touches on ski jumps, the bobsled run and rinks that will be tested during international competition from now until March.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Something about this crazy Steve Young soap opera doesn't make sense. The pieces simply do not fit. Everything seems so certain in Colorado, with the Denver Broncos and coach Mike Shanahan seemingly on the verge of getting their wish. From several directions, we continue to hear Young is destined to play for Denver this year. He'll ask the San Francisco 49ers to release him, after which he will sign with the Broncos. No doubts. No ifs or maybes. That message is coming from certain Denver media folks, who smugly claim to be plugged into the Broncos' hierarchy and act as if the whole thing is a done deal.
