B: QUARTERBACKS John Friesz continues to make progress, but holy lateral, which will come first? Star Trek VII or Friesz's seventh win as starting quarterback for the Chargers? B-: RUNNING BACKS The sun must have been in Dan Henning's eyes: He sent in No. 32 to run the ball probably thinking all the time it was No. 82. It's not like it's his first mistake. C: RECEIVERS Now we know why they haven't been playing Shawn Jefferson; he can't play.

A: QUARTERBACKS Idaho Kid's best thing going here, but team's marketing department gives each fan entering stadium pack of trading cards--complete with pic of Billy Joe Tolliver. B: RUNNING BACKS Like the return of Eliot Ness, Marion Butts is back and beating on the bad guys. There's still one Unsolved Mystery: Why are the Chargers hiding Eric Bieniemy? A: RECEIVERS Anthony Miller gets head start on Brian Davis and is caught from behind.

S: QUARTERBACKS Goods news: Stan Humphries is selected MVP. Bad news: He goes on banquet circuit. In cost-cutting move, Padres release starter Bruce Hurst and sign reliever Bob Gagliano. U: RUNNING BACKS Ronnie Harmon puts Chargers on Monday Night Football next year almost as often as Murphy Brown. Bobby Beathard trades Eric Moten, drafts Marshall Faulk. P: RECEIVERS Shawn Jefferson appears on box of Wheaties catching the football.

D: QUARTERBACKS The brass passed on Dan McGwire in the draft, and now he's passed John Friesz in NFL career victories with one. Shoot fire, by this time Billy Joe Tolliver had two wins. B: RUNNING BACKS Rod Bernstine lost a bet with Q106 deejays and has to suit up in McDonald's uniform and work the drive-thru window. Don't suppose Alex Spanos will be by for a Happy Meal. F: RECEIVERS The way he's been playing, Anthony Miller ought to catch the next plane out of town. Only problem: He'd miss it.

A: QUARTERBACKS They say Jimmy Hoffa is buried in the end zone here. Is that any more improbable than Billy Joe Tolliver not throwing an interception? A: RUNNING BACKS Instead of taking a plane, team opts to ride Marion Butts all the way home. You knew Ronnie Harmon should be playing, and you don't have a coaching degree. A: RECEIVERS You'd have a better chance of following a cab through the streets of New York than tracking Anthony Miller. He could use a little help, though.
