WEEK 1 Rams 34, Green Pay Packers 7 Mickey Sutton set up a pair of first-half touchdowns, one by forcing a fumble and the other with a 46-yard punt return, and Jim Everett threw a pair of touchdown passes to lift the Rams to a season-opening victory in Green Bay.

Jim Everett better be a franchise player because the Rams gave half of it away to obtain him. Since our ticket money will be spent for his megabuck salary, we fans expect to see the arm of John Elway and the sagacity of Dan Marino. Otherwise, we will be disappointed. Meanwhile, while the whiz kid learns the system, the Rams should sign Henry Ellard and give Steve Bartkowski some help. Or will their coffers be empty, along with their heads? RICHARD R.

Let's face it, the Rams are dishing out the same offense. We all know the recipe: It's student body right with a fumble added for kicks. Jim Everett has not altered the fact that the Rams are mired in a bog highlighted by a milieu of fumbles.

Toasted L.A. Rams quarterback Jim Everett was honored Tuesday at a banquet hosted by the CHOC Padrinos, a men's support group of Childrens Hospital of Orange County. The $100-per-person benefit drew 450 men and half a dozen women to the Irvine Marriott for silent and live auctions, a steak dinner and a few surprising moments of unchecked emotion when Everett accepted his Sportsman of the Year award.

Coach Chuck Knox has given the football to T.J. Rubley, and although it will stop Jim Everett's streak of 87 consecutive starts, is it really the end of an era for the Rams? "I don't think this portends the end of anything for Jim Everett," Knox said. "I think this: Jim Everett is a competitor and he will bounce back." Will Everett return to command a week from now, a month from now, a year from now, and play well again as he did in 1989?
