A young defense that has allowed more than yards in two games seems due for a few changes Not so when it comes to the Wash ington Redskins whose defensive coordinator used his dry wit to sug gest a different approach Threats Threats within an inch of their said Ron Lynn before turning serious Wednesday No No Its repetition You go out and do it and do it and do it Weve just got to get them better We are who we The fans at RFK Stadium seemed ready to make a threat or two them selves in the overtime of Sundays 3734 loss to Arizona As the Redskins were giving up a The first thing we did when we walked in Monday morning the first thing I said to the staff was to secondguess the calls critique what we called and what we couldve done Redskin defensive coordinator Ron Lynn team record 615 yards chants of Lynn Must Go began to reverber ate The fans pay their Lynn said sympathetically They have every right to be Lynn didnt hear the chants He didnt have to Visions of Boomer Esiason picking apart his defense was enough to keep him awake and sec ondguessing himself most of the night Thats not a pleasant thing to go said Lynn who became defensive coordinator in 1994 after spells with San Diego and Cincin nati You go back and replay the game through your and the first thing youre going to do is ask what I couldve done better Every day Everything I go back and secondguess every call The first thing we did when we walked in Monday morning the first thing I said to the staff was to secondguess the calls critique what we called and what we couldve done After a sevengame winning streak the Redskins have lost two straight allowing 75 points combined against Buffalo and Arizona The defense is now ranked last in the league nexttolast against the run and fourthfrombottom against the pass But Lynn agrees that the Redskins were living on borrowed time long before the skid started The problem all season long has been the nickel defense and teams have begun to realize that the way to score against his defense is to play three or four wideouts and spread the field as much as possible Piano Houston Memorial reinstated into 5A playoffs By CHIP BROWN Associated Press Writer AUSTIN AP The cheerleaders were there and they were cheering The guys on the football team were bouncing up and down pumping their arms and screaming The whole thing felt like a playoff pep rally In reality it was The Piano Wildcats had just been reinstated to the playoffs Piano was allowed to advance to the Class 5A Divi sion I playoffs without leading rusher Rashaad Gunn after a hearing Wednesday by the University Inter scholastic League State Executive Committee The UIL also reinstated Houston Memorial but rejected Palestine for postseason competition Barring any last minute appeals in state court Piano 55 will make a recordextending 30th playoff appear It appalls me to see that the UIL rules are no longer enforced at least that they dont apply to Piano East coach Scott Phillips ancc Saturday

for the misdeeds of an individual player The committee also criticized those who turn in a rival school for alleged violations at the 1 Ith hour After the committees ruling Piano players and cheer leaders hugged shared tears of relief and cheered wild ly before singing the schools fight song loudly just outside the hearing room That joy was tempered by the disappointment and anger felt crosstown at Piano East It appalls me to see that the UIL rules arc no longer enforced at least that they dont apply to Piano East coach Scott Phillips said We should withdraw from UIL governing and

period allowed two goals in the first and trailed 31 after one From that point how ever the Stars would not get another puck past Roloson in his NHL debut as the Flames rallied from the twogoal deficit for a 33 tie Wednesday night It would have been nice to get some easy shots early but I was able to battle back and stay Roloson said When you get down on yourself thats when things go really bad on you Dallas was right on us from the start but we were able to sur Stars veteran goalie Andy Moog gave Roloson high marks for keeping his composure North Texas players to clean up stadium The
