The St. Louis Rams were still pinching themselves as they arrived in Atlanta to begin the week of preparation leading up to Super Bowl XXXIV. "If a psychic would have told me we were going to the Super Bowl, I would have asked for my money back," Rams safety Keith Lyle said yesterday. The Rams (15-3) completed their one-year transformation from chumps to champs as they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 11-6, Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. They'll play the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV at 6:18 p.m. Sunday at the Georgia Dome.

Dorsey Levens had some advice for Donovan McNabb about insomnia before the Super Bowl. McNabb said Levens told him, " 'Don't be afraid if you can't get any sleep [tonight], because you're just so fired up for the game, sometimes you can't control it.' " For players, the night before the Super Bowl is often sleepless - whether it's due to nerves or partying. Levens knows about both from his days with the Green Bay Packers, who played in Super Bowls XXXI and XXXII.

Steve McNair proved once and for all last night that he is more than just a running quarterback. He completed 22 of 36 passes for 214 yards in Tennessee's 23-16 loss to the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV. He engineered a valiant fourth-quarter drive that very nearly forced the first sudden death in Super Bowl history. "You saw the real Steve McNair tonight," Titans coach Jeff Fisher said. "He did what we asked him to do tonight. He has the heart of a champion. " McNair averaged just 100 passing yards in each of the Titans' first three playoff games, as they relied mainly on the running of Eddie George.

The Super Bowl weekend has arrived, evident by the three-hour dinner waits at restaurants and the long lines at clubs. For the NFL, which has had two embarrassing incidents involving players and nightlife, this has to seem like another episode of Temptation Island. All week here, the talk has been about whether the New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens can avoid temptation in a city filled with nude dancers who must abide by a new, six-feet-from-the-patron lap dance rule. So far, the players have stayed out of trouble, despite various reports of Ravens sightings at some of the city's finest nude-dancing establishments.

Jeff Diamond is going to the Super Bowl, albeit a year later than he had expected and with a different team. Diamond was the Minnesota Vikings' senior vice president of football operations last season when they went 15-1 and seemed a cinch to earn a spot in Super Bowl XXXIII. But they gagged in the NFC Championship Game against 14-point underdog Atlanta and lost an overtime heartbreaker. Four months later, after losing a power struggle to coach Denny Green, Diamond reluctantly left the organization to which he had given 23 years of his life.

This train wreck started in South Florida eight months ago. The first car jumped the track the night safety Eugene Robinson was arrested on a solicitation charge. The next night, Robinson and the Atlanta Falcons were thumped in the Super Bowl by the Denver Broncos. Ever since, the Dirty Birds' cars have gone off the track one by one. The Falcons, last year's Super surprise, are 0-3 and in super trouble heading into today's home game with the Baltimore Ravens. They hardly resemble the team that finished the 1998 regular season 14-2 and stunned Minnesota in the NFC championship game.

The Dallas Cowboys proved last season that reports of their death were a bit premature. After they finished 6-10 two seasons ago and failed to make the playoffs for the first time in seven years, everyone rushed out to Sears Hardware to buy a shovel and heap dirt on America's Team. But before the celebration could get into high gear, the Cowboys made a Lazaruslike recovery. Went 10-6 last season and won their sixth NFC East title in seven years. Became the first team in division history to run the table, winning all eight of their division games before losing to Arizona in the first round of the playoffs.

There is a feeling that Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson evoke every time they create a big play out of thin air. Fans simply shake their heads in wonder. The last time that feeling permeated these parts, another Eagles quarterback-receiver duo was wowing Philadelphia on their way to the Super Bowl. Six years ago, Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens were arguably the greatest offensive twosome in franchise history. But Vick and Jackson have raised that bar, at least in terms of excitement.

NEW ORLEANS - When the coaching bug finally bit Dick Vermeil again in 1997, the first call he made after becoming the St. Louis Rams' head coach was to Wilbert Montgomery. "Wilbert and I had stayed close," Vermeil said. "He did so much for me and the Eagles. I always felt guilty that there was nothing I could do for him [after his playing career ended in 1985]. "When I went back into coaching, I knew there was something I could do for him. He had no idea the call was coming.

Get out the Kleenex and settle in, because the final act of the NFL's Disneyesque melodrama ended perfectly. The St. Louis Rams and storybook quarterback Kurt Warner stood, first-and-10 at their 27, tie game, 2 minutes, 12 seconds left against the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV. It had to be Disney, didn't it? It couldn't be real. After all, Disney did the halftime show, and sister company ABC broadcast the game. Hmm. Could Warner, five years removed from stocking shelves in an Iowa supermarket, throw the game-winning touchdown pass?

News flash: Dick Vermeil might have a couple more days off this month. That's if a friend doesn't call asking for a favor or a local charity doesn't phone desperate for a speaker with fund-raising clout. Vermeil has yet to reach double figures in off days since returning from a week vacation with family in Key West, Fla., shortly after coaching the St. Louis Rams to victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. Two days after Super Sunday, he announced his retirement from coaching. "Retirement?

For once, the game was actually worth watching. The battle of the ad airwaves was a bit more forgettable. With the exception of E-Trade and a couple of other Internet entries, the Dot.Coms were Dud.Coms. And at $2.2 million a 30-second spot, there's a good chance some of the flops won't be around next Super Bowl. Other companies - Visa, Tropicana, General Motors - have money to burn, and did. And some didn't have to spend a dime to reap millions in free publicity from an event seen by more than 220 million people.
