The 49ers thrashed the Rams in San Francisco Sunday afternoon, 41-13, five weeks after thrashing them in St. Louis, 44-10, and aren't you glad you don't have to care about these things anymore? Living in a Ram-free zone can be a beautiful experience, particularly on those two Sundays every year when the 49ers are on the schedule. You eat better. You sleep better. You can watch the Sunday night highlight shows without doubling over due to intense lower abdominal pain. St.

* At 1 p.m. in Los Angeles it was 78 degrees as the morning haze cleared to warm afternoon sunshine. There was 0% of rain and 0% chance of professional football. * On this date in 1984, the Raiders beat the Indianapolis Colts, 21-7, at the Coliseum, giving them a 9-4 record and clinching their 19th winning season in 20 years. * You wouldn't think the 49ers needed inspiration to play the Rams, but they got some from Todd Kinchen.

The Rams released wide receiver Todd Kinchen to make room for cornerback Darryl Henley on the roster. Henley reported to Rams Park, met with Coach Chuck Knox, but left without signing a contract. "I expect it to be done," said John Shaw, Ram president. "We're just waiting for some documents detailing the financial terms (of Henley's $2-million bail)."

The Rams, who were looking to add a wide receiver to their roster, instead have lost one. Todd Kinchen, the team's third-round pick from a year ago, underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday. The Rams hope to have him back in time for the regular season. Kinchen did not catch a pass last season but did return a two punts for touchdowns in the season finale against Atlanta. * The recruiting battle for Buffalo wide receiver James Lofton appears to be heating up.

Todd Kinchen turned a short pass into a 79-yard touchdown, then set up a second fourth-quarter touchdown with a 60-yard punt return to lead Louisiana State to a 17-8 victory over No. 11 Texas A&M on Saturday night. Both teams are 3-1. Texas A&M scored on a 13-yard pass from Lance Pavlas to Doug Carter with 5:24 left, and Pavlas hit Shane Garrett for the two-point conversion.

The future and past collided in Anaheim Stadium on Sunday, sending the Rams to a runaway victory and burying a dark part of their recent history. It was the Rams' season finale--but the victory meant more for 1993. The Rams, fueled by new faces and seemingly ready to weed out many of the old, beat the defenseless Atlanta Falcons, 38-27, before 37,706.

Running back Howard Griffith and wide receiver Todd Kinchen will return kickoffs for the Rams on Thursday night at Atlanta, replacing rookie running back Russell White and second-year cornerback Steve Israel. Griffith, signed by the Rams Sept. 2 after San Diego cut him, replaced Israel on two kickoffs previously this season but has no returns. Kinchen is the team's punt returner. White has averaged 15.3 yards in eight kickoff returns and Israel 18.4 yards in five returns this season.

What a difference a change of address has made for the Rams. The team won four games all last season when it was based in Anaheim, and now, as the St. Louis Rams, it has won four in four weeks. And get this--the Rams have yet to commit a turnover. On Sunday, they defeated the Chicago Bears, 34-28, before a sellout crowd of 59,679, with only 45 no-shows. There was some bad news for the Rams, however.

Wide receiver Todd Kinchen, suggesting that his Christian philosophy might have damaged his standing with the Rams, was released Tuesday to make room for cornerback Darryl Henley, who has been indicted for cocaine possession and distribution. To avoid paying an additional week's salary, the Rams had to cut Kinchen, who was due to earn $375,000 this season, by 1 p.m. Tuesday, although Henley had yet to sign a contract.

Wide receiver Todd Kinchen, who underwent reconstructive knee surgery late last season, caught a pass in an organized practice for the first time in eight months. The Rams put Kinchen on the physically unable-to-perform list earlier this week, only to take him off Thursday. After passing a physical exam in the morning, Kinchen was on the practice field in the afternoon. Why the rush?

Mitchell Price, Kevin Robbins, Jeff Esters, Wymon Henderson, Dexter Davis--those names help explain why the Rams are 3-9 and looking worse every week. Forced to grab people off the street, the Rams have been unable to overcome a staggering list of injuries. The Rams, however, are not only losing but are being beaten badly. "Oh, they're beating us," agreed Coach Chuck Knox. "Sure they are; there isn't any question about that.

It was a routine slant pattern, one that Ram receiver Todd Kinchen had run dozens of times in practice. It was a routine catch, a routine seven-yard gain, but it was anything but routine for Kinchen. It was his first NFL catch, which gave the Rams a key first down in a fourth-quarter touchdown drive Sunday against the Detroit Lions. And more importantly, it marked his progress in a long, tedious comeback from knee surgery. "It was incredible just to get that over with," Kinchen said.
