Quarterback Steve Bartkowski, who spent 11 National Football League seasons with the Atlanta Falcons and his last one with the Rams, officially announced his retirement Wednesday, citing a chronic knee problem that has slowed him considerably in recent years. "My heart and spirit say press on, but the flesh is unable to obey," said Bartkowski, in a statement issued by his attorney, Leigh Steinberg. Bartkowski, 34, has had five operations on his right knee.

Coaches John Robinson of the Rams and Mike Ditka of the Chicago Bears said Friday that they will not risk starting injured quarterbacks Steve Bartkowski and Jim McMahon in Monday night's game at Soldier Field. So, for the second week in a row, Steve Dils will start in place of Bartkowski, and the Bears will go with Steve Fuller. Bartkowski said this week that he felt good enough to play against the Bears, but Robinson has decided to rest his quarterback's ailing right knee for another week.

Because of the humidity, John Elway had trouble getting a grip on the football Sunday. But the Denver quarterback still managed to complete 19 of 38 passes for 291 yards and 3 touchdowns as the Broncos defeated the Atlanta Falcons, 44-28. Elway said the ball was wet throughout the game and "it was flying on me. That's the first time in a long time I've played in this kind of humidity and it was tough for me, but, heck, I'll take 44 points any day."

Rams Coach John Robinson didn't need to review the film of Thursday's scrimmage against the San Diego Chargers to determine if it was a worthwhile afternoon. "It was great fun and a great workout," Robinson said. "A scrimmage like this gives you some sense of who likes to play the game. "You have to remember there's more to it than just techniques. In a scrimmage like this, you can look in players' eyes and see who enjoys the physical part of the game."

"It's been a year I'd like to forget," Dieter Brock says. First, there was the NFC title game at Chicago in January when he got the blame for the Rams' 24-0 defeat. Then, in training camp, his back went out. Then, when he came back, he injured a knee, clearing the way for Steve Bartkowski to become the starting quarterback. Then, his older brother, Bill, died suddenly in Birmingham, Ala.

Jonathan Ogden, one of the top offensive linemen to play at UCLA, has been selected for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame. Ogden was a four-year starter for the Bruins and won the Outland Trophy as the nation's top lineman in 1995. He spent 12 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and was named to the Pro Bowl nine times. Ogden was drafted fourth overall by the Ravens in 1996 and was the centerpiece of an era where UCLA developed top offensive linemen. The Bruins had six offensive linemen drafted between 1994-1999.

The Rams' exhibition victory over the San Francisco 49ers Monday night was so much fun that it could almost make a coach forget reality for a while. Steve Bartkowski looked so good at quarterback that there might never had been a controversy at all. Ron Brown looked so fast at wide receiver that the continued absence of Henry Ellard was hardly noticeable. But, as Coach John Robinson said, there was some pain in reviewing film of the 31-17 win.
