Derrick Tate's big mouth got him in trouble with the law in 1997. He was acting as a pallbearer at the funeral of a friend, Alexander Williams, 27, who was shot and mortally wounded in a North Philadelphia bar fracas on Oct. 7 that year, that also left another man dead. Tate's lawyer, Jack McMahon Jr., said Tate was feeling guilty about running out of the bar, leaving his pal Williams dying on the floor, so he made up a story about having been involved in the shooting. He told Williams' family that he shot and killed Rowle "Roscoe" McGarrell, 32, inside the bar on Cecil B. Moore Avenue near 23rd Street, trying to help Williams.

AS I WAS watching "Daily News Live" the other night, I saw first-hand how pompous Temple basketball coach John Chaney is. Host Michael Barkan asked Chaney why he went off on a tangent at his awards ceremony about President Bush and the war in Iraq. Barkan was told by the loud one to not interupt him, then did the same thing by interupting Barkan several times. Chaney said he was upset about our president because nearly 1,400 Americans have been killed along with many innocent Iraqis.

DEAR ABBY: When I was an adolescent, my father molested me. It took me 20 years to finally confide this secret to my mother. Afterward it felt as if a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. That feeling lasted about two minutes. That's how long it took for her to get on the phone and spread the news to everyone she could think of. This was two years ago and, after repeatedly asking her to stop, she continues to tell. Two days ago, I caught her spilling the beans to an acquaintance she hadn't spoken to in more than a decade.

Joan Rivers is not all mouth. She has some heart, too. After catching pals Tom Posten and Tim Conway in "Just for Laughs" at the Rich Forum in Stamford, Conn., the threesome hit a local bistro for some post-show eats. Rivers noticed that one of the busboys wasn't having as good a time as she was and asked why he had such a sad face. The young Indian said, "Bad phone call. Mother in hospital," according to an eavesdropping diner who said that the star ripped a "big" gold bracelet from her arm and told him to give it to his mom. Then the three stars continued to party until 1 a.m. Although her agent says they haven't even seen a script yet - and won't disclose its working title - Rivers has apparently had a rebirth of interest in a sitcom to be shot on the other coast.

He played to near collapse last Sunday, a man fully deserving of that warrior branding that football players often get. If you had any doubts that this was a new - and better - Hugh Douglas after his 5 1/2 sacks in the first three games, last Sunday should have obliterated them. It's well-known that Douglas has a big mouth. Now he is clearly showing he has the hunger to match it. Not that he wasn't hungry before, but now, at age 29, it's all coming together. He is showing that he can stop the run, which is the ultimate transformation.

I WOULD LIKE to thank Bill Belichick on his first derogatory remarks in print being against Freddie Mitchell. I have been an Eagles fan for 29 years, and I never disliked an Eagle as much as I do Freddie Mitchell. He has contributed nothing to this city as long as he has been here. With all the mouth he has, you would think he would find a way to back it up, but he is just another big-mouth bust. The faster he is out of green and white the better. Brian White Philadelphia

HAVE WORDS ever tripped off your tongue without clearance from your brain? Have you ever experienced the bitter aftertaste of foot-in-mouth? It happens to the best of us, even at the Daily News. So, welcome to Daily News Regrets, an occasional feature where we humbly recall the times we should have kept our big mouth shut. This week's Regret dates back to April 8, 1959. "Unhappy," a wife and mother, wrote to "Dear Penny," the Daily News advice columnist, for marital guidance.

Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vince Tobin says he has been compared unfavorably to his predecessor, Buddy Ryan, once too often, and he doesn't want any of his players doing it again - especially wide receiver Dennis McKinnon. "First off, I think Dennis McKinnon has a big mouth," Tobin said. "And there's only one thing worse than having a big mouth, and that's if you don't have the facts to back up your mouthy statements. " Tobin asked coach Mike Ditka for permission to speak to the team so he could respond to remarks McKinnon made Tuesday at a luncheon.

Mitch Williams said Delino DeShields has a big mouth. Delino DeShields challenged Mitch Williams to a fight. Mitch Williams said Delino DeShields had a chance to fight him, but ducked out because he is a 140-pound chicken. Delino DeShields said he was waiting for Mitch Williams to hit him with a pitch for a second straight night. If you get the impression that Mitch Williams and Delino DeShields are not exactly the best of baseball buddies, you have the right idea.

No artist can stay a child of her hometown forever. Philadelphia-born Santigold - who started life here as Santi White, singer of local ska-pop band Stiffed, and duet partner to rapper GZA and nu-soul songstress Res - became an internationalist, a singer-composer touching on a melange of funk, dub, reggae, ragga, punk, Africana, New Wave, hip-hop, house, electronica, and noise, often in one go.

THINK IT SOUNDS fishy that largemouth bass swim in the Delaware River? Well, forget it. They do, and they're getting baited, bagged and tossed back. For the first time, the Bassmaster Elite Series is being held in Philadelphia, and yesterday's late-afternoon launch at Penn's Landing was anything but floundering. For the next three days, pro anglers and bass fishermen will have spectators and fishing fanatics hooked as the Elite pros troll the river to compete for a prize at the end of a four-day excursion.

WHILE WATCHING my favorite news channel, I listened as the anchor stated something about an old tradition regarding the first sailor off the ship greeting a loved one with a kiss. Well, what I saw next sickened me to the point where I almost threw my shoe at the television screen. How could this network air such filth - two women kissing? This was not news, it was an abomination. My son witnessed this filth and Lord knows how many other children saw it. There are a lot of people who are not down with this Adam and Steve or Jill and Jane mess.

With a fierce windmill motion, the Baltimore attacker unleashed a shot at Brian Dougherty that looked like a pellet, but the Barrage goalie picked the ball cleanly with his glove. Apparently, the terrific save wasn't enough for Dougherty, who stalked the shooter for a few yards, pointing and jabbering at him. He was talking the talk after walking the walk. Who knows what Dougherty was yammering about, because he prefers to keep much of his trash-talking private. After all, his mother might find it upsetting.

THE DAY after dueling lawsuits dealing with the alleged extortion of Bill O'Reilly and wild Bill's phone sex fantasies involving his associate producer, O'Reilly appeared on "Live With Regis and Kelly" to promote his new children's book, "The O'Reilly Factor for Kids. " O'Reilly told Reege and Ripa he'd been repeatedly threatened with lawsuits and bodily harm over the past few years (and that was just from his guests). He also said he knew that by filing his lawsuit, he could perhaps ruin his career.
