USC quarterback Sean Salisbury, overlooked in the NFL draft, was signed as a free agent by the Seattle Seahawks Monday. "I couldn't be happier the way things worked out," Salisbury said from Seattle Monday night. "But I was sure miserable on draft day. "I'm not naive enough to have thought I was going to get drafted high, but everybody kept telling I'd get drafted somewhere. So I was really down. "I think I'm better off in my situation now than if I'd been drafted in the later rounds.

I take some time off, and so I see the Lakers and Chargers do the same. It's one thing for the Lakers to underachieve, two NBA titles and three straight visits to the Finals, no reason to panic, although I will be going to San Antonio on Tuesday to help fire up the guys. The Chargers are another story, our very own football team after next season, and they are notorious underachievers with no resume to earn them anything but ridicule. They try that stuff in L.A., and they might just as well stay where they are, because L.A. has a history of ignoring football teams that are no good.

It wasn't the best effort for a Pittsburgh Steeler team playing at home. But it was good enough Sunday to defeat a San Diego Charger team with hardly any weapons. The Steelers jumped ahead early and held on, 16-3, as their defense held the Chargers to three points on four drives into their territory in the final 19 minutes. Two seasons after preventing the Steelers from going to the Super Bowl, the Chargers (7-7) probably kept themselves out of the playoffs.

There's no hiding Stan Humphries' latest injury. Not long after shaving off the goatee that covered his gashed chin, the San Diego Chargers' quarterback dislocated his non-throwing shoulder and will sit out Sunday's game against the Seahawks at Seattle. The injury came courtesy of 320-pound Oakland tackle Chester McGlockton, who stuck his helmet into Humphries' shoulder as the quarterback slid at the end of a five-yard run in the first quarter of the Raiders' 23-14 victory Monday night.

Peete, a scrambling-type quarterback, completed 7 of 11 passes for 60 yards.

Salisbury will make his first NFL regular-season start Sunday, when Minnesota visits Anaheim to play the Rams. Gannon started the first 11 games.
