Woody Paige in the Denver Post, commenting on the departure of Bronco defensive coordinator Ray Rhodes: "The best thing [he] did was leave here.... The Broncos' defense had become Rhodes-kill, run over and left stinking and dead.... "And he seemed to have virtually no disciplinary control over defensive players who often acted like jesters, jokers and dumb jocks." OK, Woody, what do you really think of Ray Rhodes?

I see that Jesse Jackson is upset that Ray Rhodes was fired because of a crummy record at Green Bay this season. I wonder--is he also sad because Mike Ditka was dismissed in New Orleans? Also, will Mr. Jackson be upset if Norv Turner is canned in Washington? MIKE ROUHAS Chatsworth In regard to Jesse Jackson looking into the firing of Ray Rhodes, I can only say that Rhodes' record as a coach stinks and that has nothing to do with race. I could never figure out how Green Bay passed over Sherman Lewis (who I think is a winner, and by the way, is black)

He has five Super Bowl rings and he may have the Dallas Cowboys' number. Ray Rhodes, the Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year, has become worrisome and unsettling for the Dallas Cowboys heading into today's playoff game (9:30 a.m., Channel 11) against the Philadelphia Eagles at Irving, Texas. Rhodes earned his Super Bowl rings as an assistant with the San Francisco 49ers several times at the expense of the Cowboys. As a head coach, he earned the Cowboys' respect with a 20-17 victory Dec.

Ray Rhodes believes he is on his way out as coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. With the Eagles (3-11) in last place in the NFC East, Rhodes believes the team will make a coaching change at the end of the season and accepts his possible fate. "I had an opportunity here and didn't get it done," Rhodes said. "It's time to move on." * A tearful Dan Reeves, the coach of the Atlanta Falcons, left a hospital Friday, four days after quadruple bypass surgery, and called his recovery a miracle.

Ray Rhodes walked briskly into the Philadelphia locker room, shaking hands with a few people he has gotten to know since he was hired as the Eagle coach in 1995. "All right, all right. It's been real," Rhodes said after the Eagles' 20-10 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday gave them the first 13-loss season in franchise history. Rhodes, who acknowledged two weeks ago he would be gone after the season, gave yet another concession and farewell speech after the game.

Philadelphia Eagle Coach Ray Rhodes has been fined by the NFL for criticizing calls by the officials after a 31-21 loss Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals. Published reports put the fine at $10,000. Eagle spokesman Ron Howard could not confirm the amount, but he said Rhodes will have a chance to explain his conduct to the league before paying the fine.

Ray Rhodes made it official, selecting Ty Detmer as the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback for Saturday's exhibition against Baltimore and the season opener against the New York Giants. The move was not a surprise. Although Rhodes said Detmer and Rodney Peete, who lost the starting job to Detmer last year after sustaining a season-ending knee injury, would compete in training camp, it was believed it was Detmer's job to lose.

One man is gone because he wasn't Vince Lombardi. Or even Mike Holmgren. Another is gone because he wasn't Bill Parcells. And a third is gone because he got tired of being Bill Parcells. On Monday, with the playoffs yet to begin, the annual NFL off-season game of finger-pointing and blame-assigning began with three head coaching positions changing. Two of the head coaches, Ray Rhodes of the Green Bay Packers and Pete Carroll of the New England Patriots, were fired.

His team stinks, and because his owner is cheap, Coach Ray Rhodes hasn't been given the best chance to win and yet will probably be fired at season's end the way the Eagles are going. Philadelphia loses again--if it lets Rhodes go. "I'm not about to give into losing," Rhodes said. "I'm going to find a way to win. I'm obsessed with it. It's driving me crazy, it's driving me up a wall. You can't sleep--how can you sleep when you're getting your butt kicked. I can't close my eyes.
