KANSAS CITY, MO., OCT. 27 -- All is not well in the New York Giants locker room, and some of the resentment is aimed at star linebacker Lawrence Taylor.

After Sunday's 30-7 Giants victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, defensive lineman Leonard Marshall nodded toward Taylor (who was standing almost within earshot) and used the words "half-crazy" to describe Taylor.

And center Bart Oates said, "People know who walked the picket line {Taylor did not} and we're not going to forget. I promise you it won't be forgotten quickly if it's forgotten at all . . . "

Taylor said, "There are scars, believe me. When we make preparations, when we are on the field we ignore the scars. But there are scars everywhere around here . . . We know we have to win 10 in a row. One mistake and we could be out of it." . . .

Things are not quite as bad in the New York Jets' locker room although, while the remaining replacements are dressing in their own separate room, the veterans who crossed the picket line are in the real locker room with the strikers.Ryan No Buddy of Landry's

Longtime Tom Landry watchers say the only coach in Dallas Cowboys history never has been angrier than he was Sunday when Buddy Ryan had his Philadelphia Eagles go for a touchdown in the final second to embarrass Dallas.

"I had it planned all along," Ryan gloated. "I've been dreaming about it."

Landry refused to comment, saying, "It's not worthy of comment . . . Everybody has to live with themselves. I don't have to live with it."

Ryan felt the Cowboys stuck it to him during a replacement game on Oct. 4 when Landry put in regulars in the fourth quarter even though the Cowboys were safely ahead.

Ryan already is on thin ice with Eagles owner Norman Braman, who reportedly ripped his coach last week during a farewell address to the replacement players, displeased because Ryan never took those games seriously. Ryan is now a hero to his regular players because he cut every one of the replacements.To Live and Run in L.A.

Troubled running back Part 1: Eric Dickerson's latest problems with the Los Angeles Rams are part of a pattern that began back in college. At SMU, Dickerson was upset that the school didn't promote him for the Heisman Trophy.

In 1985, he held out for 46 days because he felt he was underpaid. In less than a year he has filed a $12 million suit against his former agent, been hit with a paternity suit by a former girlfriend and bought a million-dollar Malibu house that is so far from the Rams' practice facility that he is now trying to work out a deal with a local hotel during the season. When the Rams needed to move two yards to keep a late drive alive Monday night against Cleveland, Dickerson was on the sideline and the Rams failed to pick up the yardage on third and fourth downs. Rams executives say there is no chance he'll be traded . . .

Troubled running back Part 2: Bo Jackson started his football season just as he ended his baseball season. On the bench -- this time with the Los Angeles Raiders. Jackson (who has yet to carry the ball in an NFL game yet makes more than Dickerson) said "there were days when I just didn't want to come to the ballpark," late in the Kansas City Royals' baseball season.

Danny Tartabull, a Royals outfielder, said the attention generated by Jackson's two-sport controversy "was a major distraction, it just ruined our season." Jackson had no comment after sitting out Sunday's game against Seattle, but had been quoted as saying earlier in the week that he might add another hobby. "Maybe I'll play hockey, too . . . But there's just not enough days in a year." . . .

Denver Broncos running back Gerald Willhite is lost for the season with a multiple fracture of his right leg suffered in Monday night's game at Minnesota when he was tackled by Joey Browner at the end of a 34-yard gain. After surgery, the injury was deemed not career-threatening . . . Allen Pinkett, the Houston Oilers running back out of Notre Dame and Park View High School, suffered a shoulder separation in Sunday's victory over Atlanta . . . Jerry Wilcox, 46, longtime public relations director for the Los Angeles Rams, died of a heart attack in Los Alamitos, Calif. . . .

The season less than half over, all three NFC division races are about wrapped up. The Bears (5-1) are two games ahead of Green Bay and Tampa Bay, teams that have little chance of catching Chicago. The Redskins (5-1) are two games ahead of a fading Dallas team that should have trouble finishing .500. And San Francisco (5-1) is two games up on New Orleans, whose coach, Jim Mora, said the Saints are not ready to compete with the 49ers.Cardinals: A Slip on Defense

Stats of the week: The St. Louis Cardinals led the league in pass defense last season, allowing opponents to complete only 49 percent of their attempts. This season, the Cardinals pass defense is allowing opponents to complete 65 percent . . . Houston's Mike Rozier came into this season never having rushed for 100 yards in an NFL game through two years. This season, he already has had games of 150 and 144 yards rushing, narrowly missed in the first game (93) and is the league's third-leading rusher. Rozier is benefiting from being the workhorse for the first time. But that likely will change when first-round draft pick Alonzo High-smith signs . . .

Walter Payton, career average 91 yards per game, has 96 yards in 39 carries (2.9 per carry) through three games this season. Payton received a phone call recently from Bill Cosby, who told him to keep his chin up, and reminded him that Payton's picture still hangs in the bedroom of Cosby's TV son, Theo Huxtable. Payton says he felt cheered.The Upset Pick

Jim Kelly destroyed the Miami secondary last week, and his eyes may light up again when he sees the Redskins defensive backs. Buffalo over Washington.
