Joe Montana was activated from injured reserve Friday and there was a chance he might see his first action in nearly two years during the San Francisco 49ers' game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today (Channel 2, 1 p.m.). Montana, a two-time NFL most valuable player who led the 49ers to four Super Bowl victories, has been sidelined because of a torn right elbow tendon suffered in August of 1991.

Fifteen or so years ago, the San Francisco Giants were going to pick up and move here. Bob Lurie saved them for the city by the Bay. He threw them a great big life preserver. Single-handedly, Lurie kept the San Francisco (nee New York) Giants from becoming part of the Canadian trade agreement. Toronto got an expansion team instead. You might have heard of them. They call them the Blue Jays and they wear funny little birdies on their caps.

You realize the Rams are to blame for this. The Rams and the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles and Bill Parcells and Phil Simms. We could have been saved from another San Francisco 49er Super Bowl. We won't, but we could have been. There were people out there capable of sparing us from The Dreaded Red-- No! Not another pre-Super Bowl profile on Joe Montana! --but one by one, they all let us down.

Two days after team doctors for the San Francisco 49ers banned left tackle Bubba Paris from practice because of a high cholesterol count and poor conditioning, his replacement, Roy Foster suffered an injured left shoulder during practice. Second-year 49er tackle Frank Pollack is suffering back spasms and is unable to practice. Free agent tackle Ricky Siglar was taken off the field Friday because of a sore right knee.

When you're knee-deep in a four-game losing streak and reeling from devastating last-second losses in Buffalo and Minnesota, misery doesn't just need company, it sends a limousine. Luckily for the Rams, the New York Giants are coming to town this week, and while the Giants (8-1) can't empathize with the Rams' plight this year, they know well how a few funny bounces can change a season. The Giants went through similar trauma in 1988, when they finished 10-6 and didn't make the playoffs.

When the season began, critics of the run-and-shoot offense said it would never work in pro football. They called it a high school offense. They said that the NFL's first two run-and-shoot teams, the Houston Oilers and Detroit Lions, were just wasting their time. They were wrong. Or so it seems at the halfway point of a long season in which the Oilers are leading the AFC in offense, and the Lions are second in the NFC in points scored.
