Bobby Hebert, the quarterback the Saints did not want, became the quarterback they could not stop as the Atlanta Falcons defeated New Orleans, 26-15, Sunday. Hebert, who signed with the Falcons last summer after the Saints declined to re-sign him, completed 13 of 16 passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Despite having an injured right elbow, he came in after starter Billy Joe Tolliver suffered a sprained shoulder 4:50 into the game.

With only five victories in hand and their slate of games dwindled to a less-than-precious few, the Rams on Monday warmed up their valedictories for 1992. It has been a win one, lose two, sort of season--an up-down, stumble-around journey that Coach Chuck Knox says, bottom line, has already shown that the Rams are an improved team from last season's 3-13 disaster.
