Running back Steve Sewell, third-down specialist for the Denver Broncos, broke his ankle in five places Saturday and is out for the season. Originally, doctors expected Sewell to return by midseason, but discovered the multiple breaks during surgery Monday. Deron Cherry, a six-time all-pro safety who came to the pros as a free-agent punter, retired after 11 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

At Pat O'Shea's Madhatter, an Irish bar in the Richmond district of San Francisco, there was exuberance but no surprise at the 49ers' never-in-doubt 49-26 victory over the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX on Sunday. "San Diego only had two hopes: Bob Hope and no hope," exulted Raymond Woods, a carpenter wearing a replica of 49er quarterback Steve Young's No. 8 jersey. "I'm glad to be home where the champions are," said Steve Silvestri, back in San Francisco after attending Loyola Marymount.

You're Mark Malone and you're frustrated. You've spent 8 years trying to get out from under the shadow of Terry Bradshaw. When you finally do, you find yourself playing second fiddle to Babe Laufenberg. Babe Laufenberg? That's right. After being traded last spring from the Pittsburgh Steelers back home to San Diego, where you were a high school star in three sports, you naturally assumed you'd be the Chargers' starting quarterback, since the job was wide open.

*Skeptics alert*Skeptics alert*Skeptics alert* Call it calculated, call it insincere, and after a year of shifting blame, call it unbelievable. But for the first time, San Diego Charger quarterback Ryan Leaf has taken responsibility for making a shambles of his young NFL career. "I know I have screwed up," Leaf says. "In the past year I have handled everything wrong. Everything--just all wrong, and now it's time to make it right."

When Marty Schottenheimer walks into a room, you know you're in the presence of a football coach. When Norv Turner walks into a room, you ask him whether he's finished doing your taxes. When Schottenheimer's 2006 San Diego Chargers stormed into the playoffs with a 14-2 record, you wondered how they could possibly be one and done.

The pass is complete -- inexplicably, unbelievably, surrealistically complete. The San Diego Chargers have passed the Denver Broncos for good. Written off weeks ago as an NFL also-ran, the Chargers rewrote a bit of league history Sunday by becoming the first NFL team to make the playoffs by overcoming a three-game deficit in the last three weeks of the season.

Whew! He might not admit it, but you know that's what San Diego Chargers' General Manager A.J Smith uttered Sunday as the clock ticked down on his team's tough playoff win. Whew! Finally! Or maybe something a bit less genteel. This game was a referendum on Smith, one of the NFL's best general managers -- and perhaps its gutsiest.

INDIANAPOLIS -- All night long, Billy Volek kept waking with the same nightmarish thought: Oh no, I've missed the team bus. By morning, the San Diego Chargers reserve quarterback had managed only a few hours' sleep and wasn't getting any more, not with a teammate banging on his hotel room door, telling him: "Let's go."
