It wasn't long ago that celebrity athletes such as Herschel Walker and Willie Gault tried to make the U.S. bobsled team. It's not likely to happen again, at least the way pusher Chip Minton sees it. "Those guys couldn't even make the team now," Minton said. "They're great athletes, no doubt, but there's no pro athletes going to take our spots." Brian Shimer and fellow U.S.

Weak schedule (again). Rice is selfish. What next, a scathing piece on how Joe Montana once tipped only 10% at a local Denny's? What on earth could have spawned this anti-49er obsession? Just a thought, but has anyone ever seen Jim Everett and T.J. Simers together? WILLIAM MULLAN Torrance

One thing is certain with Jim Everett going to New Orleans: The Rams will improve last year's record by two wins. MICHAEL GRAY Long Beach Who writes the headlines? "Rams Dump Everett." (March 19). Dump? And Everett will receive from the Saints a base of $1 million and $500,000 for signing, another $250,000 for reporting and $500,000 for incentive bonuses? And the next year a base of $2 million with another $500,000 in incentives? Dump me, baby, dump me. RAY CONSIDINE Pasadena

Former Purdue quarterback Jim Everett has agreed to terms with the Rams and will sign a four-year contract today. A noon press conference has been scheduled to announce the signing. The Rams obtained the rights to Everett, the third pick in this year's National Football League draft, in a trade last week with the Houston Oilers. In exchange for Everett's rights, the Rams traded five-time All-Pro guard Kent Hill, defensive end William Fuller, the team's No.

There was nothing more exciting to do, one quiet night at a Midwestern university, than to speak to a certain comely co-ed. So football player Jim Everett stealthily made his way to the roof of her sorority house, then convinced her to come to the window. Suddenly, he fell. Everett slid from the roof, reached to save himself and latched onto the rain gutter. He cut his fingers, damaging nerve endings. There was no way he could hold a football adequately after that.

Ram quarterback Jim Everett is 27 years old. He's rich, famous and talented. He has everything, really, except the one thing he most desires's Super Bowl ring. No one has thrown more touchdown passes the last two seasons than Everett and the Rams, who gear up for another chase of the four-time Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers. With Montana out of the picture, Everett's life might be perfect. Or would it?

The scene was a familiar one, Ram owner Georgia Frontiere smiling brightly and introducing the very latest quarterback of the future. "This," she said, referring to Jim Everett, "is something for you (the fans), something for the coach and something for the team." The Rams, of course, had been through all "this" before. In 1982, it was Georgia mugging with Bert Jones, the former star with the Baltimore Colts.

It is a foregone conclusion at Rams Park. Assistant coaches, front-office personnel, teammates--many say quarterback Jim Everett cannot return next season as the Rams' starting quarterback. Everett's critical remarks about the team's offensive brain trust last week prompted one coach to say: "I don't care if we win out the rest of the way, old Blue Eyes (Coach Chuck Knox) won't forget. The guy's gone." The front office already has begun to discuss the future without mentioning Everett.

NEW ORLEANS--There's a kid who has been following Ram Coach John Robinson around for weeks now, tugging at the tail of every shirt Robinson puts on. Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, New Orleans. The coach can't turn around without tripping over the kid. "When?" the kid keeps asking. "Soon," the coach keeps saying. "When's soon?" the kid says. "When I say it's soon," the coach answers. The kid is Jim Everett, and he has been the Ram quarterback of the future for only six weeks now.

Did Peter McAlevey actually listen to Jim Rome before writing "King of the Jungle" (Nov. 23)? Rome's show is a four-hour justification of why athletes are worth millions--and that we fans just don't "get it." He's simply an apologist for high-priced choke artists such as Mike Piazza, Eric Karros and the other two or three athletes he kisses up to daily. One of his interviews has the velocity of a Larry King softball to Ross Perot on NAFTA. Rome had his moments of fame, much of them on his backside, compliments of Jim Everett.

Jim Everett was the star in his own Hollywood production Sunday. "Someone told me: 'Write the script for this game.' Well, it was written, and with an exclamation point on the last touchdown. It couldn't have happened any better," Everett said after defeating his former team and the man who cut him loose in the San Diego Chargers' 20-6 victory over the New Orleans Saints. It was far from pretty, however.

In Hollywood, heaven could wait for Warren Beatty. In Anaheim, heaven is now for Jim Everett, not just another quarterback for the Rams these days, but the first genuine star at the position since Roman Gabriel stood tall in the pocket back in the late 1960s. So how does Everett handle it? You know, the commercials, late hours, 90-m.p.h. drives down Pacific Coast Highway, Spago, tanning salons? No problem, really.

Jim Everett knew there could be days like this. Other quarterbacks had experienced them. He was standing at the south end of Anaheim Stadium, a victory behind him and fans cheering in front of him. Everett had seen the scene often in eight years with the Rams. Now it was his turn. He had just helped New Orleans to a 31-15 victory over his former teammates. The approval of Saint fans washed over him. "That was great coming off the field," Everett said.
