It's deja Vermeil all over again. There was Dick Vermeil, apparently content in retirement on his spread in Chester County, when the call came. Would he give up the good life and move to Missouri to turn around a struggling NFL franchise? Stop Vermeil if you've heard this one before. "Going back to St. Louis after 14 years [out of coaching] was probably a dumber move than coming here after one year," Vermeil said. "A lot of people thought I shouldn't have gone back to St. Louis when I did. " You know how that turned out. After two years of misery with the Rams, everything fell into place for a magical 1999 season.

Joe Montana said goodbye again, this time in a more subdued setting and to teammates and fans who never experienced one of his championship seasons. Yesterday, at a news conference at Arrowhead Stadium, about 100 fans stood outside chanting "one more year. " On Tuesday, more than 30,000 cheered Montana in a public ceremony in San Francisco, chanting the same thing. Montana, who retired Tuesday after 16 often spectacular seasons in the NFL, led the 49ers to four Super Bowl championships, but never got the Chiefs into the title game in two seasons.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Breaking their silence for the first time, the family of the woman shot and killed by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher said Monday their "hearts are truly broken" and asked for privacy while they grieve the loss of two loved ones. Belcher shot and killed his 22-year-old girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, at their Kansas City home Saturday before driving to Arrowhead Stadium, where Belcher committed suicide in the practice facility's parking lot, police said.

NFL Most Valuable Player Shaun Alexander has agreed to a $62 million, 8-year contract to remain with the Seattle Seahawks, his agent said last night. Jim Steiner said the deal is the richest ever for an NFL running back and will pay the league's leading rusher over $15.1 million in guaranteed cash, through signing and other bonuses and 2006 base salary. The league still must approve the contract, and Alexander has yet to sign it. The team is waiting for the contract to become official before announcing the deal, though a press conference at team headquarters could come as early as this afternoon.

The Joe Valerio watch officially has begun. He needs just 125 more touchdowns to tie the NFL record. That is assuming Jerry Rice retires this week. OK, Valerio admits, it is a reach. But then, so was the very idea he would score the first touchdown in yesterday's Kansas City-San Francisco, Joe Montana-Steve Young epic at Arrowhead Stadium. "We figured Joe was the last guy they'd look for in that situation," said Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer, explaining why they threw the ball to Valerio, a 6-5, 295-pound offensive lineman from Penn, on fourth-and-goal.

The Kansas City offense operates one way with Joe Montana at the controls, and another when Dave Krieg takes over. At least that's what the statistics say. Counting two possessions Montana started but Krieg finished, in seven games each quarterback has engineered 39 drives. Behind Krieg, who makes his third start in relief of Montana tonight (Channel 6, 9 o'clock) against the visiting Packers, the Chiefs have 54 first downs, 804 total yards and four touchdowns. With Montana, who can't seem to heal a pulled left hamstring, they have moved the chains 75 times, 1,311 yards and seven TDs. The Montana Chiefs have run 129 pass plays, as opposed to 91 under Krieg.

The Kansas City Chiefs said yesterday they will install a grass field at Arrowhead Stadium - perhaps in time for the 1994 season. The Chiefs join the Kansas City Royals in switching to grass on their neighboring fields at the Harry S. Truman Sports Complex. The Royals plan to play on grass at Kauffman Stadium in 1995. The Chiefs said they hope to have grass installed for 1994, but if that is not feasible it will be installed in the spring and summer of 1995. A nine-year study by Dr. John W. Powell, of the University of Iowa, in which he catalogued virtually every NFL injury, concluded there was a "statistically significant difference" between the Astroturf injury rates for knee sprains and knee injuries on grass.

It's one of the fiercest rivalries in the NFL, dating back to old AFL glory days. Both teams have been down in recent years, but the glory seems to be back for tonight's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the visiting Los Angeles Raiders (Channel 6, 9 o'clock). Each team is 5-3, so the winner will remain one-half game behind the Denver Broncos (6-2) in the AFC West. The loser might have to start setting its sights on a wild-card playoff berth. "You must win in your division," Raiders coach Art Shell said.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Nobody is identified with Kansas City football or bleeds Chiefs red more than Len Dawson. The Hall of Fame quarterback played 13 seasons with the Chiefs until the age of 40. Now 78, he is still the radio color analyst for the Chiefs and also does some local TV work. And Dawson, like so many around the Kansas City area, is enjoying the early success of a Chiefs team that is 2-0 after a 2-14 season. The Chiefs look to surpass last season's win total with Thursday's highly anticipated matchup at Lincoln Financial Field with the Eagles.

Periodically, during his 14 years as the Eagles' head coach, I asked Andy Reid the million-dollar question: Why in God's name do you still want to coach in this town? I'm not breaking any news here by saying there are a lot of easier places in the National Football League for a coach to make a living than Philadelphia. Places where you don't have to worry about getting a beer dumped on you after a loss. Places where they don't hurl four-letter words at you. Places where you're not subjected to the kind of abuse from the fans and scrutiny from the media - or is that scrutiny from the fans and abuse from the media?

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The time soon will be his again. Central Time. Former Eagles coach Andy Reid is expected to be announced Friday as the new coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, 4 days after the end of Reid's 14-year Eagles tenure. A source involved in the negotiations said Reid had canceled planned trips to Arizona and San Diego and was working out the details of an agreement with the Chiefs. It is believed Reid will have similar power to what he had in Philadelphia, where he was director of football operations.

EAGLES (-13) over Cardinals OK, so Double V picked up a few bucks wagering against the Birds last week, but it didn't make me happy. This is one frustrating team. They'll make you laugh (a gorgeous 34-7 crush job against Dallas) and they'll make you cry (a 30-24 loss to Chicago after leading by seven points in the third quarter). So, how do we sort through the mentality of these wacky Birds? Well, we know that at 3-5, they really have no room for another loss if the playoffs are still a goal.

Whenever an NFL game was shown during Michael Vick's 16-month stay at Leavenworth Federal Prison, the broadcasts were always of the Kansas City Chiefs. Leavenworth, in Kansas just across the Missouri state line, is approximately 30 miles from the Kansas City limits. So when Vick, doing time for his dog-fighting crimes, allowed himself a moment to dream about a return to football, he did not imagine himself playing for his former team, the Falcons, or some Super Bowl-contending team or even for the team that ultimately gave him his second chance.
