San Francisco decided Ricky Watters wasn't worth a three-year, $6.9-million investment, but former 49er assistant Ray Rhodes disagreed, so Watters became a Philadelphia Eagle on Saturday. The Eagles had given Watters the offer a week ago and San Francisco decided that matching it wouldn't work under the NFL's salary cap. The 49ers were also not exactly magnanimous in bidding him farewell.

The on-again, off-again courtship between the Philadelphia Eagles and former Coach Dick Vermeil ended Saturday when team owner Jeffrey Lurie broke off negotiations. Lurie said Vermeil did not move very far off his initial contract demand: a five-year deal worth $20 million and 5% of the team, to serve as coach and general manager.

Win or lose, Rich Kotite's chances of remaining as coach of the Philadelphia Eagles all but evaporated shortly after Jeffrey Lurie wrote the $185-million check to buy the team last May. Lurie fired Kotite on Monday, two days after the Eagles closed a 7-9 season with their seventh loss in a row, a 33-30 defeat by the Cincinnati Bengals. The parting appeared amiable. The two men stood together as Lurie announced that "Rich Kotite would no longer be the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles."

Phoenix Cardinal owner Bill Bidwill, whose team has not had a winning record since 1984, said Coach Joe Bugel and General Manager Larry Wilson will be retained. Bugel, who had been in the last year of a four-year contract, has a 13-35 record in three seasons. His last two teams have finished 4-12 and fallen off in the second half of the season, losing eight in a row to end 1991 and six of seven to finish 1992. But Bugel, 52, never thought he would be fired.

For the third, final, and most important time this season, the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys have the pleasure today of squaring off against their currently most-hated foes--who happen to be each other. This NFC divisional playoff game amounts to a simple grudge match. Even though the Cowboys and Eagles last played each other in the playoffs in 1980, these are teams that need no postseason incentives to pummel one another and keep the fires burning.
