Quick . . . someone says, "What a jerk!" and without mentioning any newspaper people, who's the first to come to mind? Thought so. You watch him thump his chest, gesture and yell at his teammates, cop an attitude when he doesn't get the ball, and then open his mouth to speak, and, well, you can have Ricky Watters. San Francisco didn't keep him, and he had just scored three touchdowns in a Super Bowl.

With Steve Young woozy from four sacks and three roughness penalties against Minnesota, San Francisco's offense had its share of problems Sunday. So when the 49ers needed a spark, they got it from the special teams and defense and beat the Vikings, 38-19. Dexter Carter had some big punt returns, including one for 72 yards and a touchdown, and Eric Davis had a 41-yard interception return for another score for the 49ers (3-2).

Chuck Knox strolled around wearing a crooked grin and a soft brown sweater, which together made him look like Bing Crosby in a devilish mood. His players cavorted on the practice field like fraternity brothers, only louder. Monday was a festive day at Rams Park, a dreary place for most of two years, but now the home of this suddenly competitive 3-4 football team.

A look at golf's backside, the stories you were never meant to see. THE O.J. TOUR The thousands of people who have taken the remarkably efficient bus rides from the parking lots at the V.A. Hospital to Riviera seem more interested in landmarks concerning the O.J. Simpson case than the golf tournament, according to several bus drivers. "Bundy, Rockingham and Mezzaluna; all you hear are O.J.

About those San Diego Super Chargers and their 15 minutes of fame: They got taken. They didn't even get five. Four minutes, 55 seconds was all, gone in a crimson and gold blur. The Chargers blinked once and they were down, 7-0. Blink twice, 14-0. They hung in there for 10 plays--seven with San Francisco in possession of the football--and while that was 10 plays longer than most of the nation expected, it was something less than the living reincarnation of the '68 Jets.

After their decisive victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, the Philadelphia Eagles became the cover boys of the NFL. During their 24-17 loss to Kansas City on Sunday, the Eagles couldn't cover anyone. The Chiefs and quarterback Dave Krieg found a hole in the vaunted Philadelphia defense by going deep. "They were biting on play-action," said J.J. Birden, who had touchdown catches of 24 and 43 yards. The Eagles came in giving up an average of about 148 passing yards per game.

Some anniversary celebration this has been. The hardest hit so far was delivered in a New Orleans bar. The most exciting run was a hip-hop dance. The most important injury occurred on an interstate highway. The most interesting play was radioed to a quarterback from a concession stand. Our senses overloaded by throwback uniforms and nostalgic films, we have some idea how the NFL wanted to commemorate 75 years of professional football. We don't think this is it.

It's time for the 60th annual NFL draft, a combination live auction and telethon, a two-day show at New York's Paramount Theatre featuring helmet phones, harangues from experts with bad haircuts and 300-pound men wearing silk suits and baseball caps. But the focus will be on a muddy field in San Francisco. It was there, three months ago, that the league realized more than ever before that these two days could affect everything that happens in the next 363.

Steve Young and Jerry Rice alone make the 49ers a team to reckon with. The Packers' Brett Favre is one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league. The Eagles and Bears have strong young coaches in Ray Rhodes and Dave Wannstedt. But when the dust clears, expect those bad boys, the Dallas Cowboys, to be sitting on top of the world again. WEST San Francisco 49ers Last season: 11-5, advanced to NFC semifinals. This season: 11-5, advance to NFC final.
