The Rams filled their last two assistant coaching vacancies Monday by hiring Jimmy Raye as passing-game coordinator and receivers coach and John Teerlinck as defensive line coach. Raye, 44, returns to the Rams after serving as an assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons and last season with the New England Patriots as offensive coordinator. "(Ram Coach John Robinson) was the main reason (to come back)," said Raye, who worked for Robinson in 1983-84.

At this point last year, San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree ? the 10th overall pick in the 2009 draft ? was just ending his contract holdout and finally joining his 49ers teammates. Now, he could be on the verge of another important breakthrough. After four disappointing games and no touchdowns, he's likely to be more involved in the offense Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. Crabtree was already more of a factor in last Sunday's loss at Atlanta than he was in any of the three previous games.

The winless Buffalo Bills released fourth-year quarterback Trent Edwards on Monday. Edwards, 26, was selected by the Bills in the third round of the 2007 NFL draft but has struggled with injuries and consistency. The Bills' offense ranked last in the NFL in yards and points after Buffalo lost its first two games when Edwards was then benched in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Bills lost again, 38-30, to the New England Patriots, on Sunday, but Fitzpatrick completed 20 of 28 passes for 247 yards with two touchdowns and two late interceptions.

The Forgotten Man cut across the middle of the field, plucked the football out of the air and shifted toward the end zone. It was only Jimmy Raye, the ball and about 35 yards of open field. His legs pumped as hard as ever. He was running to salvage his senior season, rushing to give San Diego State the lead. Sprinting back into the Aztec playbook. Once, he was right there on a prominent page, laughing and catching and hugging the football.

San Francisco 49er running back Garrison Hearst, out since Nov. 30 because of a broken collarbone, practiced Wednesday for first time since his injury. "He looked good running straight ahead," San Francisco Coach Steve Mariucci said. Hearst, the 49ers' leading rusher, will undergo a bone scan today to determine whether the break has healed.

They're No. 1. Twice. With David Carr backing up Alex Smith, the San Francisco 49ers have the unusual distinction of having two No. 1 overall draft pick quarterbacks on their roster. Smith was drafted first by the 49ers in 2005, three years after the Houston Texans took Carr in the same spot. Both Smith and Carr have struggled to prove themselves as dependable, consistent players. Although a quarterback's "starting record" is a dubious statistic — these aren't pitchers, after all; games are lost all kinds of ways — it's worth noting that teams quarterbacked by Smith have gone 16-24 (.400)

Jimmy Raye left the Rams and his position as offensive coordinator eight years ago to chase history. History won. Now, Raye is back with the Rams, without the title, on the face of it not much closer to becoming an NFL head coach than he was in 1985, when the doors of opportunity swung open for him. Back then, he was a leading candidate to be named the league's first black head coach. He was young, he was smart, he had experience. Jimmy Raye was going to be the first.

The winless San Francisco 49ers scratched offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye on Monday, firing him a day after he got a vote of confidence from Coach Mike Singletary. The winless Buffalo Bills scratched Trent Edwards, releasing the quarterback who took every first-team snap during the off-season and in training camp. The winless Carolina Panthers? They simply scratched their heads. "We are what we are," Coach John Fox said, "and that's what I'm trying to change so we're not that.

It didn't take long for the Minnesota Vikings to figure out Brett Favre 's best play. Walk up to the line. Take the snap. Hand it to Adrian Peterson . After two weeks, Peterson leads all NFL rushers with 272 yards and four touchdowns, and has been the driving factor in Minnesota's 2-0 start. Sunday, the showdown: The Vikings play host to the surprising San Francisco 49ers, also 2-0, who have the NFC's No. 2 rusher in Frank Gore . Against Seattle on Sunday, Gore rushed for 207 yards, with the two longest touchdown runs of his career, 79 and 80 yards.

And now, from the same manager who brought the world the Spice Girls, it's . . . Spice Boy? Well, no. English rockabilly phenom Jimmy Ray, unlike the Spice Girls, is not a creation of manager Simon Fuller--and he seems perfectly content with the stage name he has adopted for himself. He repeats it often enough in his debut hit single, "Are You Jimmy Ray?"

El Toro High School Coach Bob Johnson praised his defense, which accounted for just as many points as his offense. Irvine Coach Terry Henigan praised the opposition, then expressed his displeasure with the guys in the striped shirts. So it went Friday night after El Toro dropped Irvine from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 14-0 South Coast League win in front of 3,000 spectators in Irvine Stadium.

Kevin Greene manages to incorporate the word "violent" into every other sentence. Even normally low-key Jerry Gray says he's "pumped up." The Rams began 1991 with six new assistant coaches and one radically different defensive philosophy. The players have embraced the new coaches. Of course, some have been hugging their playbooks, too. "One thing you have to do as a player is adjust to whomever is coaching you. You have to make the adjustment," Gray said.
