Those precocious 30- and 40 somethings may be the hottest things going among NFL head-coaching candidates, but Richie Petitbon and Ted Marchibroda, both on the hard side of 50, do not lose sleep over it.

The Washington Redskins won for the first time in seven road games, and that's all that mattered to Coach Richie Petitbon. "We didn't play well in a lot of areas, but we certainly played good enough to win," Petitbon said Sunday after Washington beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 23-17. Reggie Brooks scored on a 78-yard run and Kurt Gouveia returned an interception 59 yards for a touchdown for Washington. Tampa Bay (3-9) is assured of finishing with a losing record for the 11th consecutive season.

Gene Stallings, Dallas Cowboy assistant coach, was named Monday to succeed Jim Hanifan as coach of the St. Louis Cardinals, filling the last coaching vacancy in the National Football League. Hanifan and his assistants were fired 15 minutes after the Cardinals' final game, which left them with a 5-11 record. Critics contended that Hanifan, who was popular with his players, had been too soft a disciplinarian. Stallings, 50, like Patriot Coach Raymond Berry, is a native of Paris, Tex.
