The Broncos said after the game that they had downplayed their chances of winning to lure the Packers into overconfidence. "We had the perfect trap," Bronco tight end Shannon Sharpe said. "We had a nice snare, we covered it up with some leaves."

The Denver Broncos were a field goal away from replacing Brian Griese with Steve Beuerlein in the fourth quarter. It's a good thing for the Broncos that St. Louis kicker Jeff Wilkins missed. Griese threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns and led a 71-yard drive for the deciding score as the Broncos beat the Rams, 23-16, Sunday. Griese played a solid first half--10 for 16 for 110 yards--but was booed after two interceptions and a fumble in the third quarter.

Denver Bronco wide receiver Ed McCaffrey has been downgraded from probable to questionable for today's game against the Atlanta Falcons in Denver. McCaffrey did not practice Thursday because of a groin injury. His status was changed Saturday because Coach Mike Shanahan said he will not make a decision until game time. Robert Brooks probably will start if McCaffrey does not play. The Broncos' injury woes worsened Saturday as receiver Billy Miller was added to the inactive list.

1 PITTSBURGH--If quarterback Kordell Stewart can maintain his Pro Bowl pace and running back Jerome Bettis stays sound--he says his injured groin has mended--the Steelers could be Super Bowl-bound. Special teams problems persist, even though Coach Bill Cowher has hired a new assistant to run the show. 2 NEW ENGLAND--The biggest test for quarterback Tom Brady will be how he handles the success of last season.

Kansas City Coach Gunther Cunningham doesn't have many good players of his own, so it's understandable why he has admiration for others. "It is amazing to me about Ed McCaffrey," Cunningham said of the Denver wide receiver. "He is probably the most underrated football player that I have ever seen in my life. He blocks, he catches balls, he does everything he is supposed to do. I hope he doesn't start throwing too."

If it weren't for a higher calling, I could play wide receiver for the Denver Broncos. It can't be that tough a job if Ed McCaffrey is starting for them in today's playoff game against the Miami Dolphins. You have John Elway and Dan Marino, obviously loaded with talent, and Neil Smith and Trace Armstrong, huge men with an appetite for mugging quarterbacks. You put McCaffrey out there with these guys, and it's just George Plimpton with coordination.

Considering that Washington State hasn't played in the Rose Bowl game since 1931, it isn't surprising that Cougar fans are scrambling to find game and airline tickets for the Jan. 1 encounter against Michigan. Most callers to a toll-free line for ticket information got a busy signal Monday or recording that said: "We're sorry. All circuits are busy now. Will you please try again later?"

The right legs of Denver kicker Jason Elam and New York Giant punter Rodney Williams were on display Monday, but it was the left one of Bronco receiver Ed McCaffrey that had everyone gasping. McCaffrey, one of the team's most popular and talented players, suffered a broken tibia and fibia in his lower left leg as he absorbed a brutal hit in the third quarter. He was carted off the field, underwent surgery late Monday and is done for the season.

SHAFT 2000 This is what happens when you ignore the writers and turn the vote over to the fans, players and coaches. You get a Pro Bowl minus a leading candidate for NFL most valuable player, the league's No. 3 rusher of 2000, the league's No. 3 rusher of all-time, the league's top receiver and the probable NFL rookie of the year. Pro Bowl rosters, such as they are, were announced Thursday. Aggrieved parties, the line forms here: 1.

Gump was a goner. Ed McCaffrey, a k a Forrest Gump for his hayseed haircut and gawky running style, saw his career flash before his eyes when Dan Reeves cut him from the New York Giants in 1994. Now one of the NFL's top receivers and a Pro Bowl selection for the Denver Broncos, McCaffrey will face his tormentor in the Super Bowl. There won't be any hugs and kisses. In fact, they may barely acknowledge each other.
