Now it's the Oakland Raiders' turn to talk some trash. The Raiders got their revenge against rival San Diego on Sunday night, as little-used Harvey Williams scored a career-high four touchdowns in a 38-13 rout before a record Charger crowd of 65,714. The Raiders wanted payback, believing the Chargers were a bit mouthy after a 25-10 victory at Oakland on Oct. 5.

Raiders vs. Chiefs on Sunday. You know it's going to be a good game when they start taking shots at each other Wednesday . Raider running back Harvey Williams has been telling any and all who would listen that he was not treated fairly during his three years with the Chiefs, implying that he was set up to fail. "Marty (Schottenheimer, head coach) brought me to his house and said, 'You're the man. You're the man,' " Williams said Wednesday. "Then the next week they signed Marcus (Allen).

Harvey Williams took a step into the line, then darted toward the corner of the end zone. To the delight of Oakland's offensive coaches, he got man-to-man coverage from a lineman. And that's the whole idea behind the Raiders' switch of the 6-foot-2 Williams from running back to tight end. "They ain't got a guy in this league that can cover me. I don't even think safeties can cover me," Williams said. "They've got me doing all kinds of stuff. They just want to get the ball in my hands."

Potential. Harvey Williams has it. That's what people have said all his life. Harvey Williams will fulfill it. That's what people promised when he arrived in Kansas City. Harvey Williams will never realize it. That's what they said when he left. He will fulfill it. That's what people promised when he arrived here in Los Angeles. He will never realize it. That's what they said when the Raider running game disappeared at the start of the season. And what does Harvey Williams say?

Dear Georgia and Chuck, This time you really can blame the Rams' loss to the Saints last Sunday on Jim Everett. MICHAEL A. GLUECK Newport Beach Al Davis didn't hire Tom Flores because he was Latino or Art Shell because he is black; he hired them to produce winners. The Raiders made lots of money out of being society's outcasts. I don't know if Shell said something that someone could construe as racist to Jeff Hostetler. Neither one of them, and certainly no one else on the Raiders, is going to confirm that he did. If Art Shell had an un-Kodak moment in the heat of battle, as Hostetler said, "Let it go!"

Louisiana State University's leading rusher, Harvey Williams, broke an unspecified team rule and will not start Saturday when the sixth-ranked Tigers play Cal State Fullerton, Coach Mike Archer said. "He has been demoted as a tailback for breaking one of our team rules. He will play, but he will not start," Archer said Tuesday. He would not say what Williams did to draw the punishment. "Our rules are strictly within our football team," he said.

Two weeks ago, after watching Florida freshman Emmitt Smith rush for 224 yards against Alabama on television, Harvey Williams of Louisiana State averaged almost 20 yards per carry that night against Rice. Said Williams: "I'm not going to lie to you. I'm not bragging. Y'all like to say Harvey Williams is cocky and has a big head, but I really consider myself the best back in the Southeastern Conference."

Harvey Williams surprised his critics when he rushed for nearly 1,000 yards in his first season with the Raiders after three frustrating seasons in Kansas City. Then he surprised some of his supporters when he re-signed a week ago for only one year at $550,000, plus incentive bonuses. Some said Williams sold himself short, but the 27-year-old tailback disagrees. The incentive bonuses, Williams said, involving both team and individual goals, could allow him to more than double the $550,000.

Running back Harvey Williams desperately wanted to remain a Raider. Enough to fire agent Steve Feldman a month ago when negotiations weren't proceeding to Williams' satisfaction. Enough to fire a second agent, Jordan Woy, Thursday night when negotiations again bogged down. Enough to walk in and negotiate his own deal Thursday with Bruce Allen, the Raiders' director of football operations.

Tailback Harvey Williams rushed for 983 yards this season despite not being named the starting tailback until the Raiders' seventh game. Had he been able to gain 17 more yards Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs, he would have been the first Raider to gain 1,000 since Marcus Allen carried for 1,759 yards in 1985. Williams also scored seven touchdowns, nearly double his previous total of four, gained in three seasons.
