  • BOOK BAG: BEHIND THE SCENES OF TWO NFL TEAMS

         THE RAIDERS:  Former Raiders team doctor ROBERT HUIZENGA
    details his tenure with the team in a new book.  Huizenga, on
    Raiders Owner AL DAVIS:  "He is incredibly generous to players
    who have gone out and laid their lives out down on the field.
    But unfortunately, if you don't do that, he might not be so
    generous."  Huizenga also claimed that, "on several occasions,"
    Davis ordered players to "take a shot."  Former Raider Shelby
    Jordan corroborated Huizenga's allegations: "I felt pressured
    into taking shots" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 10/2).
         EAGLES:  MARK BOWDEN, author of "Bring the Heat, a Pro
    Football Team's Quest for Glory, Fame, Immortality and a Bigger
    Piece of the Action," was interviewed on "Good Morning America."
    The book is based on three seasons of covering the Eagles (ABC,
    10/3).
