1. The Quarter Back
The Broncos' Terrell Davis has three 100-yard rushing quarters this season. Only Jim Brown (104.3) has had a career average of at least 100 yards on the ground per game; in three-plus seasons Davis has averaged 101.2. He is 25, and, barring catastrophic injury or the loss of his migraine medicine, he can start working on his speech for Canton.
2. A Pathetic Waste
Four weeks ago Redskins defensive tackle Dana Stubblefield got in coach Norv Turner's face and asked what he was going to do about the team's smelly play. Hey Stubby: The fish stinks from the head. The Skins paid you and fellow tackle Dan Wilkinson $13 million in signing bonuses alone during the off-season, and the two of you have combined for 30 solo tackles and 2� sacks. How bad is the defense? Leading 24-10 midway through the fourth quarter on Sunday and pinned at their own four-yard line, the Cowboys called 11 straight running plays, the last a six-yard touchdown run by Chris Warren, who along with Emmitt Smith ran for more than 100 yards.
