News flash: Jay Schroeder is coming to Los Angeles after all. OK, so it's only for tonight's exhibition game at the Coliseum between the Raiders and Schroeder's Washington Redskins. But that hasn't stopped the rumors from running rampant. They began to intensify when it became obvious the Raiders were giving the quarterback job to Steve Beuerlein, who has yet to take his first snap in a regular-season game.

The Cardinals signed Jay Schroeder, picking up a third quarterback who went to the Super Bowl with another team. To make room, the club released quarterback Shawn Moore, who was signed two weeks ago after Denver waived him. Schroeder moved into the No. 3 spot, behind Steve Beuerlein and Jim McMahon. Although he started 91 of 109 games with the Washington Redskins, the Raiders and Cincinnati, Schroeder said he wouldn't lobby for Beuerlein's starting spot. The Bengals cut Schroeder last week.

He came. He saw. He conquered. But you could ask Julius Caesar, it's not that easy. He fizzled. In our nation's capital, Jay Schroeder went up like a skyrocket and came down the same way. Within five years of that spring when Homer Smith, then UCLA's offensive coordinator, wrote letters to all those general managers, recommending that they look at this unemployed bust-out from the Toronto Blue Jays farm system, Schroeder experienced a lot.

Jay Schroeder spent this Thanksgiving far removed from his former home in California. He spent it far removed from his role as the Raiders' starting quarterback. He is a reserve for the Cincinnati Bengals. But Schroeder could not be happier spending the holiday at his temporary residence in northern Kentucky, eating a traditional dinner with his wife, Debbie, and sons Brian, 9, and Chris, 6. A week ago, Schroeder wondered whether such an experience was possible.

On their own, quarterback Jay Schroeder and assistant coach Mike White were two men in the depths of career crisis. Schroeder's fall was played out locally. He finished the 1989 season as the Raiders' No. 2 quarterback behind Steve Beuerlein. Time was running out on Schroeder's quarterback clock. He was pushing 30 and still couldn't throw straight. Five NFL seasons had produced 13 more interceptions than touchdowns.

Raider quarterback Jay Schroeder faked a flip to tailback Bo Jackson and faded back to pass on the first play of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Schroeder lofted the ball deep to Willie Gault, who had run a post pattern. Gault broke in between Bengal defensive backs Lewis Billups and Rickey Dixon and made a leaping catch for a 63-yard reception to set up a touchdown. "It was just a fake flip," Schroeder said.

Jay Schroeder clings to his job as Raider quarterback like a man gripping a palm tree in a hurricane. He's not letting go. Hear that, Bobby Hebert? Bash him, trash him, mash him, but just try prying his fingers loose. Need him to change? Meet Mr. Chameleon. Schroeder can just as easily erase from memory that 4,000-yard passing season in Washington and plow down the field three yards at a time.

Washington Redskins' Coach Joe Gibbs says injured quarterback Jay Schroeder could play Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons as a holder on placekicks. Schroeder suffered a sprained right shoulder Sunday in the first quarter of the Redskins' 34-24 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. He was replaced by Doug Williams, but returned to hold for kicks.

Cincinnati was the beginning of the end for Jay Schroeder, the Raider, last September. Cincinnati is where it began anew for Schroeder, the Bengal, on Friday. The veteran quarterback, an unrestricted free agent, severed his agonizing ties with the Raiders by signing a one-year contract, with an option for a second year, with the Bengals. Schroeder, who earned $1.3 million last season, agreed to a small pay cut, the specific amount unknown, to serve as backup to 23-year-old David Klingler.

Having lost Ronnie Lott, the Raiders selected safety Patrick Bates of Texas A&M in the first round of Sunday's draft. Having apparently lost faith in Todd Marinovich, the Raiders selected quarterback Billy Joe Hobert of Washington in the third round. Later in the third round, the Raiders took defensive back James Trapp of Clemson. The acquisition of Bates was expected.

Quarterback Jay Schroeder, with enough microphones and cameras in front of him to hold a presidential debate, stepped up to the lectern at the Raider news conference Wednesday and announced, "We're back." Back as the starting quarterback, replacing Todd Marinovich for Sunday's game at the Coliseum against the Seattle Seahawks. Back in the spotlight. Back in the role of trying to lead a 3-6 team seemingly heading nowhere.

Todd Marinovich is back on the bench. Jay Schroeder is back in the huddle. For the second time this season, the Raiders will change starting quarterbacks, replacing Marinovich with Schroeder for Sunday's game at the Coliseum against the Seattle Seahawks. Marinovich was pulled from last Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles slightly more than five minutes into the second quarter after throwing his third interception. Schroeder went the rest of the way in a 31-10 Raider loss.

Three weeks after losing his quarterback job, Jay Schroeder may be back--one way or another. Starter Todd Marinovich is still wearing a heavy bandage on the ring finger of his throwing hand after suffering a deep cut on it in last Sunday's game against the New York Giants. "It's just sore," Marinovich said Thursday. Coach Art Shell said he expects Marinovich to be able to start Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. But whether he finishes could depend on more than the condition of his finger.

Jay Schroeder began Tuesday by taking his 7-year-old son, Brian, to school near his San Diego area home. It was a day off for the Raiders, a chance for Schroeder to head south for a brief escape from the controversy that has surrounded him as he struggled to keep his job as the Raiders' starting quarterback. But when Schroeder walked back into his house, heard the phone ring and learned his coach, Art Shell, was on the other end of the line, Schroeder knew that struggle was over.

Just when you think Jay Schroeder is turning into a fair NFL quarterback, he reverts to his usual form. He may have an arm like a cannon, but it is a Civil War cannon. You are never sure where the ball is going. CHUCK HILLMAN Torrance

After that humiliating display by Jay Schroeder on Sunday, I hope that the Raider coaches will finally come to their senses and start Todd Marinovich. I haven't been this disappointed in the Raider coaching staff since the Mike Shanahan days. GREG MORO Thousand Oaks
