Etta Johnson still has the letter, the one written by the baby of her family, little LeShon. He wrote it three years ago, when Etta sometimes couldn't pay the electric bill, or the water bill, or buy enough propane to heat the two-bedroom house in the tiny, no-stoplight town of Haskell, Okla. She was working two jobs at the time, but it never seemed to be enough. "We were like every poor family," she said from her niece's house in Haskell. "We were trying to make ends meet."

Until he touched the ball in overtime, LeShon Johnson had little chance to show why he might be the remedy to the Arizona Cardinals' woeful running game. He had caught a five-yard scoring pass, one of four Kent Graham threw in a big day by young players who appear to have settled in as the Cardinals' backfield of the future. But the St. Louis Rams bottled him up with 31 yards in 11 carries in regulation.

It doesn't take a football genius, Al Davis or anybody else to figure out what the Raiders need heading into today's draft if they hope to be in the running for next year's Super Bowl. Running is the key word. First and foremost, the club, faced with an uncertain timetable for the return of injured Greg Robinson, must obtain a quality running back. Toward that end, the Raiders are deep in negotiations with Harvey Williams, the former Kansas City Chief.

In what has become an unusual situation that just might work, the Eagles are alternating the entire right side of their offensive line. It started with the rotation of veteran right guards Jeff Dellenbach and David Diaz-Infante. Now it will also include right tackles Lonnie Palelei and Jermane Mayberry. Beginning with last week's game against the Dolphins, Dellenbach and Palelei started the game, and were relieved by Diaz-Infante and Mayberry in the second quarter.
