The problem is that Sam Wyche's life is a no-huddle offense, an open assault on the senses. Wyche is a clear target in a business that reveals human foibles at midfield on national television. And the psychoanalysts frequently are three men in a booth, with microphones. As if the pressures of NFL coaching weren't enough, Wyche insists on being a sensitive, complex man who immerses himself in the issues of the day: women's rights, the homeless, the ozone layer.

The Green Bay Packers fired operations vice president Tom Braatz, who oversaw four losing seasons during his five years with the team. Bob Harlan, the Packers' president, said all the candidates considered as replacements are working in the NFL. Harlan would not comment on Coach Lindy Infante's status. Bengal Coach Sam Wyche angrily denied that he had been fined $7,500 by the NFL for disparaging comments about officials.

On the occasion of Cincinnati's 14-13 loss in Cleveland last Sunday, Bengals' Coach Sam Wyche spoke out against the old Vince Lombardi credo that winning is the only thing that matters in sports. In a lengthy diatribe, he chastised fans and reporters alike for placing too much emphasis on winning. "We're going to have fun," Wyche said at one point. "There's golf to be played and tennis to be served up and other things to be done besides worrying about a football game."

Although Cincinnati Coach Sam Wyche said tackle Anthony Munoz (shoulder) and guard Bruce Reimers (ankle) are doubtful and running back James Brooks (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's playoff game at the Coliseum, Raider Coach Art Shell doesn't buy the Bengal injury report. "We spent all of our money during Christmas and we're not buying anything else," Shell quipped. "That bill of goods was sold to us on Boomer Esiason the first time we played them. He wasn't supposed to play at all.

Saddled with an injury that sticks out like, well, a sore thumb, Bengal running back James Brooks chose logic over valor Wednesday and said he would not play in Sunday's AFC playoff game against the Raiders at the Coliseum. Brooks, one of several hobbled Cincinnati offensive players, suffered a dislocation of his left thumb in last Sunday's first-round victory over the Houston Oilers but had hoped to be able to play against the Raiders with the help of a soft cast.

Coach Sam Wyche gave a tongue-lashing to his Cincinnati Bengals players for what he perceived as a lackluster preparation for Sunday's game against the Raiders in Los Angeles. "There are a couple of players who aren't happy with me right now," Wyche said following a private session with his players after Wednesday's practice. "I hope they're so mad they'll play better." "Maybe, as much as anything, we need to get ourselves back on track for the Raiders game," Wyche said.

Cincinnati Bengal Coach Sam Wyche, fined nearly $28,000 this season by Commissioner Paul Tagliabue for barring female reporters from locker rooms, says the commissioner's office may be leaking internal reports to news organizations. Commentator Will McDonough reported Sunday on NBC that the NFL's two-month investigation into allegations that New England Patriot players harassed Boston sportswriter Lisa Olson showed that aspects of the incident appeared to have been exaggerated.
