The Rams through the years have had trouble in the Superdome, trying to hear the snap count when their offense is lined up against the New Orleans Saints' defense. Coach Chuck Knox said he knows the problem well. "We had that advantage when we were in Seattle," said Knox, who coached the Seahawks in the Kingdome for nine seasons before moving to the Rams. "Teams coming in there had to contend with it the same way. We opened down there last year against the Saints.

On his way to New Orleans for the platform proceedings last week, George Bush was asked if he was concerned whether his nominating convention could fill the giant Superdome. Not really, Bush said, and in any event he said he had been assured the sound system was state of the art. But then, betraying there were worries, indeed, he jokingly imitated an echo: "FOURTH DOWN! Fourth Down! Fourth Down. fourth down."

Philip Morris, the maker of Marlboro cigarettes, agreed Tuesday to move advertisements in professional sports stadiums that the Justice Department said violate a government ban on TV cigarette advertising. The Justice Department said Philip Morris, the nation's biggest tobacco company, placed the ads in stadiums so they would appear on TV during game broadcasts--thereby violating the 1971 ban.

The NFL hopes the New Orleans Saints can play at least some of their 2006 schedule at the Louisiana Superdome. The stadium, damaged by Hurricane Katrina, will not be ready to play host to a Saint game until late in the season, however. The team will probably split the remaining games between San Antonio and Tiger Stadium at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge as they have this year.

Terry Bradshaw won four Super Bowls as quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers. But, like legions of NFL fans from the Gulf Coast region, he has a special place in his heart for the New Orleans Saints. A native of Shreveport, La., he has closely followed the rare ups and frequent downs of a franchise that Sunday secured its first Super Bowl bid in the club's 43-year history. The Saints will play the Indianapolis Colts on Feb. 7 in South Florida (3:15 p.m. PST; TV: Channel 2). "You get the feeling if the Saints win and go to the Super Bowl, it rights the ship," said Bradshaw, a Fox analyst in attendance for New Orleans' 31-28 overtime victory Sunday over Minnesota.
