SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- It is easy to tell Bryant Young and Dana Stubblefield apart. Young is a quiet, rock-like 280-pounder whose pass rush has drawn comparisons to the Green Bay Packers' Reggie White. Stubblefield is a gregarious 290-pounder with a roundish frame and tree-trunk legs.As different as they are, it is rare that the San Francisco 49ers' starting defensive tackles are mentioned separately. Which is fine by them. After all, the comments usually involve superlatives, such as Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer's statement last week that Stubblefield and Young "are the two best players at the position as a tandem."

Fifteen years ago, on a cold December morning, a distraught and financially desperate Iowa farmer named Dale Burr walked into the Hills Bank & Trust Company in the tiny town of Hills and shot the bank president in the head with a 12-gauge shotgun. Before he was finished, the 63-year-old Burr had also killed his wife, his neighbor and himself, and the worst agricultural crisis since the Great Depression had reached a bloody and symbolic climax. Claire Davis may or may not have heard of Dale Burr before she wrote this haunting and remarkable novel, her first, but she knows his type.

1 Control Giants defensive end Michael Strahan. One of the NFL's top pass rushers must be kept away from injury-prone Redskins quarterback Brad Johnson.2 Play with poise. The Giants defense accounted for two touchdowns last week and is a threat to capitalize on mistakes by the Redskins, who have a growing reputation of choking late in games.3 Make sure Dan Wilkinson and Dana Stubblefield show up. The run-stoppers combined for two tackles against Dallas and cannot afford a similar showing against the makeshift Giants backfield.

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Ray Rhodes isn't talking. He will at some point, but for now, Rhodes is declining to be interviewed, deflecting questions on how he plans to turn around the team's 30th-ranked defense. The players are saying the right things about how Rhodes has brought a new attitude and a more aggressive approach, in part because they have to, but, in part, because they believe it's true. After spending time with him in San Francisco, defensive tackle Dana Stubblefield is especially complimentary when discussing Rhodes.

LANDOVER -- In another time, under different circumstances, this would have been a victory for coach Norv Turner to savor.The Washington Redskins, losers of three of their past four games, parlayed five turnovers and a 183-yard rushing effort by Stephen Davis into a 23-13 victory over the New York Giants yesterday.It put Washington in sole possession of first place in the NFC East at 6-4 with six games left and should have been a reason to celebrate. After all, the Redskins' defense, ranked worst in the league, held the Giants to one touchdown.

LANDOVER -- Washington Redskins defensive tackle Dana Stubblefield stared up at the scoreboard and bit his upper lip. Defensive end Marco Coleman sat slumped on the bench, draping a towel over his face.And defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson ran off the field with a scowl, fuming over the breakdowns, the lack of aggressiveness as well as the Redskins' futility against playoff-caliber teams.Just when their season started to get tough, the Redskins cowered with a soft and listless defensive effort, bowing to the Buffalo Bills, 34-17, in front of 78,721 at Redskins Stadium yesterday.

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins figured to enter the 1998 season full of hope, but instead are coping with a pile of question marks.The hope was fostered by the improved health of quarterback Gus Frerotte, running back Terry Allen and wide receiver Michael Westbrook, a solid linebacking corps and secondary, and the addition of defensive tackles Dana Stubblefield and Dan Wilkinson.The questions marks, however, built up over a disappointing 1-3 preseason in which the Redskins scored just 13 points in the first and second quarters dominated by first-string players, including scoreless performance last Friday night against the Buffalo Bills.
