Diane Long will sit in an Edward Jones Dome luxury box Sunday, binoculars lifted to her eyes, her focus trained on the line of scrimmage. She won't be following the football much when the St. Louis Rams play host to the Chicago Bears. For four quarters, the trenches will be the center of her universe. On one side of the line of scrimmage will be Long's eldest son, Chris, standout defensive end for the Rams. On the other, her middle son, Kyle, rookie guard for the Bears. In the suite, a couple of nervous parents - Diane and her husband, Hall of Fame defensive lineman Howie Long.

Last weekend, the Oakland Raiders (who used to be the Los Angeles Raiders, who used to be the Oakland Raiders) played the Baltimore Ravens (who used to be the Cleveland Browns), and the Indianapolis Colts (who used to be the Baltimore Colts) played the Arizona Cardinals (who used to be the St. Louis Cardinals, who used to be the Chicago Cardinals), and the St. Louis Rams (who used to be Los Angeles Rams or the Anaheim Rams, who used to be the Cleveland Rams) played a home game, but I was busy rooting for the Houston Oilers (soon to be the Nashville Oilers)

Smith was put on reserve and remained suspended without pay, the Raiders said Friday. He would not travel with the team for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. A spokesman for Smith announced last week that Smith would no longer play for the Raiders. He left the team last Thursday for his home in Los Angeles.

Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson is on record saying he was "robbed" of the Heisman Trophy back in 2004, when he finished second in voting to USC quarterback Matt Leinart. But now that he's won the NFL's MVP award, Peterson has changed his tune. Well, kind of. "I look at that [Heisman] trophy now and knowing that Matt Leinart has it, with how his career went, I would rather him have it," Peterson told the StarTribune of Minneapolis. "At least he has something positive to look back on and say, 'I won the Heisman.' I feel good that he has it. Even though I know it should have been mine.

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis announced Wednesday that the team will not return to train in Oxnard, as he expects to settle on a Northern California site for a training camp as early as next week. Oxnard officials learned last June that the Raiders planned to return to the Bay Area after 12 years of playing in Los Angeles, so Wednesday's news came as no surprise.

ALAMEDA. - Equipment manager Bob Romanski has been working for the Oakland Raiders longer than head Coach Dennis Allen or any of his players have been alive. Yet that's only good for second place on the family list when it comes to service time with the team. Romanski's father, Dick, 84, who still reports to work as something of an equipment manager emeritus, joined the team a half-century ago at the invitation of an old Army buddy named Al Davis. And although the feisty, combative Davis went on to become the man behind the Raiders and their outlaw image, Dick Romanski might actually have been the face of the franchise.

Playing after only four practices, Jeff George completed 17 of 24 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns in the first half Thursday, sparking the Atlanta Falcons to a 27-6 exhibition rout of the Oakland Raiders. George signed a one-year, $3.6-million contract last week. He becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. George connected with Eric Metcalf on an 11-yard scoring and hit Tyrone Brown on a 48-yard scoring play.

NFL owners have ratified a deal to lift the player lockout but it's unclear what that means for a collective bargaining agreement or when free agency might begin. According to NFL Network, the vote was 31-0 with the Oakland Raiders choosing to abstain, as they often do. While owners have been meeting at an airport hotel in Atlanta, representatives for the players are in Washington working on their next move.
