After a search of almost three months, the Phoenix Cardinals have finally found a coach--Washington Redskins assistant Joe Bugel. The NFL team scheduled a news conference today to introduce him officially as coach and would not comment on the selection ahead of time, but Bugel told Mizlou's News Sports Network that he is "looking forward to working with Mr. (Bill) Bidwill and Larry Wilson," the Cardinals' owner and general manager respectively.

Tim Keown of the San Francisco Chronicle, commenting on the firing of Oakland Raider Coach Joe Bugel, who couldn't survive a 4-12 season: "They're lining up for the job now, to hear the Raiders tell it. And, when you get right down to it, who wouldn't want to coach football's most successful franchise? "The job comes with a whole host of attractive bonuses: unreal expectations, a bizarre fixation on the past and the haunting specter of Al Davis hovering over one or both shoulders."

Robinson hasn't decided who will start at left tackle but said Gerald Perry, who didn't appear in four exhibition games because of a knee injury, and Robert Jenkins (formerly Robert Cox) would split time at the position. . . . Phoenix running back Johnny Johnson, a Pro Bowl selection last season, is listed as questionable because of a foot injury, but Cardinal Coach Joe Bugel said he would play. Starting offensive linemen Bill Lewis and Luis Sharpe are suffering from the flu but are probable.

One day after Tim Brown threatened to start calling his own plays to revive the moribund Oakland Raider offense, Coach Joe Bugel dismissed Brown's remarks as the musings of a frustrated player. Though Bugel said he's always open to suggestions from players such as Brown, he told a team meeting that publicly questioning coaches' decisions is not a productive move. "I told them I've been around a long time. I told them there's a way you talk to the media--you don't point fingers," Bugel said.

Late last Monday night, I suddenly realized I had forgotten to watch ABC's "Monday Night Football." This is one of my two favorite TV programs, because I hate to miss any show with Michaels, Gifford, Dierdorf, Beavis or Butt-head. Anyhow, I turned on my TV. There were 10 seconds left in the game, the Kansas City Chiefs had the ball, the Oakland Raiders were winning, 27-22, and Oakland's fans were on their feet, getting ready to leave for the parking lot so they could find their Harley Davidsons.

Steve Beuerlein and the Phoenix Cardinals played as if they wanted Coach Joe Bugel to keep his job. Beuerlein wasn't even aware he set a Phoenix record of 14 consecutive completions to start the game as the Cardinals rolled to a 27-10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. "I sure hope so," Beuerlein said when asked if he thought finishing on a three-game winning streak saved Bugel's job. "We've got a good thing going. We are all adamant that we want it to stay the way it is."

Phoenix Coach Joe Bugel said Monday he is only a few steps away from turning the season around and the Cardinals' collapse against the New Orleans Saints wasn't due to any major flaw in the team. "We are playing our guts out," Bugel said about Sunday's 31-21 home loss. "There are four or five other things that we got to get correct. That means no more stupid penalties and don't give up the football. If we do that, then we've got a chance of being a darn good football team."
