Donovan McNabb, a three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, is under fire in Philadelphia for his complicity in the Eagles' 2-3 start. Jay Fiedler, who has a .702 winning percentage through 47 regular-season starts in the NFL, hears the wolves at his Miami door, despite the Dolphins' 4-1 start. In Chicago and Atlanta this week, Kordell Stewart and Doug Johnson already lost their starting jobs, a byproduct of too few wins and too many mistakes. It's business as usual in the NFL, with one curious twist.

With every playoff game, Poly coach Roger Wrenn is getting closer to the end of his coaching career. Wrenn is retiring after 40 years of coaching in Baltimore City, but the No. 5 Engineers extended his lengthy run another week by routing visiting No. 12 Perry Hall, 50-21, in a Class 4A North Region semifinal Friday night.

A season that began with promise ended with a thud for Morgan State on Saturday. The Bears managed just 10 first downs and 142 yards of total offense, giving up the game-winning touchdown on a 23-yard pass from David Legree to Javaris Brown with 46 seconds left in a 21-16 loss to Hampton. Morgan appeared to have had the game in hand, taking a 16-15 lead with 1:42 left on a 1-yard sneak by quarterback Delonte Williams, before allowing the Pirates to drive 78 yards on seven plays in under a minute.

IJAMSVILLE - Westminster pushed Linganore around on the opening drive and scored a touchdown 1:57 into last night's game to quiet the overflow Frederick County crowd. But absolutely nothing else went right for the Owls after that. Linganore scored on Pat Balderson's 80-yard run on its first play from scrimmage and kept making big plays that No. 14 Westminster couldn't answer en route to a surprisingly easy, 58-7 victory in a Monacacy Valley Athletic League game. Westminster (5-1, 1-1 in the Chesapeake Conference)

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The odds seem to be stacked against the Maryland football team today as it prepares to meet North Carolina State in virtually a make-or-break game for the 1999 season in terms of a bowl bid for the Terps.First of all, the somewhat beleaguered Maryland secondary has to figure out how to prevent one of the nation's most mobile quarterbacks, Jamie Barnette, from putting on a passing clinic.Barnette will obviously be emotionally charged for the noon Maryland test because it will be the final home appearance of a storied career that peaked last year when he guided the Wolfpack to a shocking 24-7 victory over national power Florida State.

ATLANTA -- On Tuesday, Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden expressed concern that his team couldn't play with No. 9 Georgia Tech, saying, "I'm not sure this will be a true barometer of our progress."And minutes before last night's game, athletic director Debbie Yow expressed concern for redshirt freshman quarterback Calvin McCall, who was playing only the fourth game of his college career.Those concerns were valid.But Maryland -- scrappy, resourceful, thrill-a-minute Maryland -- presented a surprisingly appealing picture to restless alumni and curious recruits watching last night's 49-31 loss on ESPN.

ST. LOUIS - With every incomplete pass, the boos grew louder for St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger. And to make matters worse for him, if he wasn't throwing a pass that found nothing but artificial turf, he was getting driven into the ground by the Ravens' defense. It was not Bulger's night, and he knew it. "I played terrible," he said. "I put us in some bad situations." Bulger endured his worst game of the season last night, completing 13 of 26 passes for 110 yards. He threw two interceptions and was sacked four times.

Handling the offensive burden early and then leaning on its strong defense the rest of the way, the McDonogh boys soccer team came away with a 3-0 win over visiting Loyola Friday afternoon. Senior midfielder Jake Weiner scored in the second minute and senior defender Neal Desai followed with a goal minutes later for the early advantage. The visiting Dons often pressed, but the home team's sturdy defense, led by seniors Joe Meyer and Marquez Fernandez, didn't budge. The victory assures the No. 2 Eagles (17-2)

Cam Cameron was named Ravens offensive coordinator yesterday, becoming new coach John Harbaugh's first and perhaps most important hire. If Harbaugh wants to turn around the Ravens in the 2008 season, he'll need Cameron to revitalize an offense that has consistently ranked among the NFL's worst for a decade. Before he was fired as head coach of the 1-15 Miami Dolphins three weeks ago, Cameron built a reputation for directing one of the NFL's most explosive attacks. In his last three seasons as the San Diego Chargers' offensive coordinator (2004-2006)

The losing streak is longer than any other, but Navy will use the same approach today against Notre Dame as it has for every opponent this season. The offense has to score as much as it can and hope the defense improves. Because the host Fighting Irish are 1-7, today's game is judged by some to be one of the Midshipmen's best chances to end the longest losing streak to one opponent in NCAA history: 43 games. But it is a lot to ask of this 4-4 Navy team. While the offense is strong, averaging 35.8 points a game, the defense has struggled.

COLLEGE PARK -- Before last night's game, the season's most popular Halloween costume seemed pretty clear. After all, ever since Chris Turner, that lanky California kid with the cottonball curls, took over as Maryland quarterback three weeks ago, sales of blond afro wigs in College Park have increased a hundredfold. But after last night's 18-17 nail-biting loss to Virginia, the Turner costume has been supplanted on the season's must-have list. The new costume of choice is a bit more elaborate, but it'll surely bring more candy.

Tight end Todd Heap could be returning from a strained hamstring this week, tackle Jonathan Ogden has continued to make progress with his sore left foot and quarterback Steve McNair has avoided tweaking his groin injury. But when it comes to evaluating the health of the Ravens' offense, it goes beyond bumps and bruises. The Ravens have no offensive touchdowns in their past 13 series, a span of 88 plays. They have five offensive touchdowns this season, tied for the third-lowest total in the NFL. And dating to last season, they have been held without an offensive touchdown in three of their past seven games (including playoffs)

Coach Paul Johnson was rewarded with a contract extension yesterday after turning around the moribund Navy football program in less than two years. Only two days after denying interest in the vacant position at Duke, John son agreed to remain at the academy through the 2009 season, giving him two more years on his contract. Financial terms were not disclosed. After going 2-10 in Johnson's first year, the Midshipmen are 7-4 this fall with only their annual rivalry against winless Army remaining, unless a bowl invitation is extended thereafter.

Miami --The stadium was divided in half and the energy level never ebbed. Penn State players bounced out of the tunnel for the biggest game of their lives. Some will be back next year, some won't. Their field general, Joe Paterno, walked to his place on the sidelines. His second home since 1950. No one questions whether he'll be back next year. And that's precisely what made last night's Orange Bowl a bit sad, despite the pageantry and the crowd support and the inspired performances. Paterno, who's as proud as he is grumpy, has doomed his storybook career to a sad, ill-fated ending.
