You may recall, if you remember your history, a time when President Franklin D. Roosevelt, eager to pack it with friendlier folk, referred to the Supreme Court of the United States as the "nine old men." He meant it pejoratively. But whenever I look at the Washington Redskins, that same description keeps running through my mind. I mean, for a football team, these guys put me in mind of nothing so much as nine old men and the Supreme Court. They should play in robes.

We all laughed when Baltimore's Joe Flacco called himself the best quarterback in the NFL during the off-season. Well, who's laughing now? Certainly not the Denver Broncos, who happen to have the guy many people think really is the best quarterback in the NFL, Peyton Manning, on their roster. That's because the Ravens knocked the Broncos out of the playoffs with a 38-35 double overtime victory Saturday, and it was all made possible by a desperation pass from Flacco to Jacoby Jones on a third-down play with just 41 seconds left in regulation.

The microphones stood ready. The cameras and reporters were in their places. It was the first day of the NFC championship game media blitz at Redskin Park, and offensive tackle Joe Jacoby was there to absorb it all. "We need (John) Riggins for this," Jacoby said, laughing into the limelight. Jacoby, the quiet giant, has become a most unusual subplot in the story of the Washington Redskins' attempt to defeat the New York Giants today at Giants Stadium.

William (The Refrigerator) Perry, whose lumbering girth once made him a football folk hero, was released Tuesday by the Chicago Bears. Perry has tumbled a long way since his rookie season in 1985, when he helped the Bears to a Super Bowl title and his weight of nearly one-fifth of a ton became a staple for comedy routines and television commercials. He did not start a game this season and last Sunday was declared inactive for the first time.
