Art Shell got it in an elevator. Bill Meyers got it in his car. Howie Long got it at home. Sooner or later, they all get it, one way or another. Sooner or later, most who work with quarterback Jeff Hostetler get caught on the receiving end of one of his practical jokes. He's got standards, mind you: No damage to the body. No damage to personal property. But plenty of damage to one's peace of mind. Now all of this might seem strange, coming from Hostetler.

Jeff Hostetler could never do enough to please the New York Giants. He led them to a Super Bowl championship, but he was always fighting for a job. Three days into the Raiders' training camp at Oxnard, Hostetler has become a quarterback who can do no wrong. "I have a new beginning here," said Hostetler, 32, who signed a three-year contract for $7.5 million with the Raiders in March. "It's like a breath of fresh air."

Jeff Hostetler practiced with a brace protecting his sore right knee, but Oakland Raider Coach Mike White said there's "almost no chance" Hostetler will start Sunday at Kansas City. Billy Joe Hobert, who completed 17 of 26 passes for 192 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Raiders' season-opening 19-14 loss at Baltimore, will start. The Raiders have lost seven games in a row, going winless since Hostetler was sidelined because of a shoulder injury last November.

Injury-plagued quarterback Jeff Hostetler will re-sign with the Oakland Raiders today, a team official said Monday.

The signing had been scheduled for Monday, but was postponed because Hostetler was out of town. The 34-year-old unrestricted free agent was bothered by a sore right elbow and finished last season a week early because of surgery on his left shoulder.

The Seahawks still are soaring toward the playoffs, while the Raiders might be reeling right out of them. Chris Warren ran for three touchdowns and Seattle made its longshot playoff chances more of a reality with a 44-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday night. The Seahawks (8-7) won their third game in a row and their sixth in seven in handing the fading Raiders (8-7) their fifth loss in a row. "Who would have thought it about this team seven weeks ago?"
