Into the visiting team's locker room they ran, leading the San Diego Chargers at halftime, 21-6, and well on their way to becoming the first football players in history to play in a Super Bowl on their own field. Once they got to the dressing room, however, the Miami Dolphins found nothing but darkness. None of the lights were on. None of them would work. "Good little trick," Miami receiver Irving Fryar said. "We had to hold our meetings down the hall." They never should have come out.

Coach Dan Henning of the San Diego Chargers expressed frustration Wednesday with the continuing absence of unsigned linebacker Junior Seau, the team's first-round draft choice from USC. "Training camp is good for anybody," Henning said. "It should be doubly good for a rookie. If that logic has any merit to it, he won't be as good as if he was here in camp. If the logic has no merit, we should do away with training camp."

San Diego running back Marion Butts, who has threatened to hold out unless his contract is renegotiated, will be fined if he doesn't report to the Chargers' training camp on schedule, Coach Dan Henning said. Charger rookies and free agents are scheduled to arrive Monday at their UC San Diego training camp, with veterans due Wednesday. Minnesota receiver Hassan Jones underwent arthroscopic knee surgery for a small cartilage tear and is expected to miss the start of camp.

Leslie O'Neal is confident enough in his own abilities to say: "I feel there is no one better than me." Specifically, O'Neal is talking about the NFL. More specifically he is talking about the outside linebacker position the Chargers shifted him to this year. Before that he was a defensive end. The change in nomenclature is deceiving. Essentially O'Neal is a pass rusher. And he is wise enough to qualify his contention that nobody does it better.
