Quarterback Steve Walsh said today he will turn pro and skip his final year of eligibility at the University of Miami "with an undescribable feeling of satisfaction." Walsh said he had nearly accomplished his goals to win a national championship, "become the best player I could be" and obtain a finance degree, so "I feel right now is the best opportunity for me to move on." He said he has not heard from any teams and has not picked an agent yet.

Steve Walsh, who didn't throw a pass for the Chicago Bears last season after leading them to the playoffs in 1994, will get a chance to throw for the St. Louis Rams, who signed him Wednesday after looking at such free agents as Steve Beuerlein, Randall Cunningham and David Klingler. The Rams are seeking a replacement for Chris Miller, who will sit out the 1996 season after a series of concussions. Mark Rypien also will compete for the job.

New Orleans Saint Coach Jim Mora went to his bullpen Sunday, and Steve Walsh, backup quarterback and long-relief specialist, responded with another strong performance. Two weeks ago, Mora told Walsh about a half hour before a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he would be starting in place of Bobby Hebert, and Walsh led the Saints to a 23-7 victory.

During a recent training camp lunch in Platteville, Wis., Steve Walsh was sitting at a half-empty table when fellow quarterback Erik Kramer walked over with a tray of food. And kept walking. Not only did Kramer not sit with Walsh, he didn't even look at him. Such is life these days with the Chicago Bears. As expected, it was announced Tuesday that Kramer will be the Bears' opening-day starter Sept. 3, and that Walsh will be his backup.

The New Orleans Saints' trade for quarterback Steve Walsh is looking better and better. Walsh, acquired in September from Dallas, connected with Eric Martin on a six-yard touchdown pass play with 2:10 left Sunday to lift the Saints to a 10-7 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. The Saints improved to 5-6. The Falcons are 3-8. "Thank God that games are four quarters long and last 60 minutes, because it was a nightmare before that," said Walsh, who completed 22 of 37 passes for 181 yards.

The team that wasn't supposed to be here stunned the quarterback who was supposed to go so much further. Steve Walsh led a precise offense with two touchdown passes Sunday and the Chicago Bears forced four turnovers in a shocking 35-18 victory over Minnesota, continuing the postseason futility of the Vikings and Warren Moon. Few people expected the Bears to reach the playoffs when the season began.

It had been hyped as a grudge match between former teammates-turned-rivals, but last Sunday's New Orleans Saints-Dallas Cowboys game was really no more than Buster Douglas-Evander Holyfield. One guy just wasn't prepared. Troy Aikman, the Cowboy quarterback who had kept Steve Walsh on the bench in Dallas, was making his 24th start and running an offensive system he had studied for two years. Walsh, traded Sept.

Steve Walsh got his initiation rite as a starting quarterback from the Houston Oilers. Walsh, who came off the bench last week and led New Orleans to victory in his first game with the Saints, passed for 292 yards but was harried all game Sunday by the Oilers, who ended up with a 23-10 victory. Houston (4-3) sacked Walsh four times, forced a fumble and made an interception after the quarterback had taken the Saints (2-4) to an early 3-0 lead.
