Every NFL player has his own way of getting up for a game. San Francisco 49er tight end Jamie Williams reads comic books. Williams said he reads Spiderman, Uncanny X-Man, Conan the Barbarian ("my medieval hero"), whatever it takes to get him psyched. "It works for me," Williams said after a practice for today's NFC title game against the Rams. "A lot of guys go out and get crazy during the week to deal with the stress of this job," Williams said.

Orlando city officials publicly conceded Monday what they had privately known since last week, that the Raiders had no intention of moving there. "After numerous telephone negotiations, certain economic specifics could not be resolved," Orlando Mayor Glenda Hood said in a prepared statement. There is no evidence there was any serious negotiating by the Raiders. Owner Al Davis toured the 72,000-seat Citrus Bowl while in Orlando last month for the owners' meetings.
