Palm Beach Post, Tuesday, Nov. 5, 1968-19 4 Wgg J' . Air - W . fiP- New Defense Kept Jurgy On Ground! Unitas Out But Colts Won Anyway NEW YORK (AP) "We used to depend on John (Unitas). We put all our faith In him. If we were down 10 points with two minutes to go we figured he'd do it. Now we realize each man has to give a little more." John Mackey, Baltimore's fine tight end, was trying to explain the Colts' success Monday, without the services of Unitas, considered by many the greatest quarterback In the game. Unitas is out of action because of tendonitis in his right elbow. "We're doing things differently," said Mackey at the Pro Quarterback Club luncheon. "We are gambling more with reckless abandon. We're not sitting back to see if somebody else is going to help us out. We know we've got to go out and win it ourselves. , J J I . - j Jurgensen saw a lot of them. Wearing a cage to protect his cracked ribs, Sonny was tossed seven times for 45 yards. Page spilled him four times. Grant said the defensive maneuver was adopted for the Washington game specificallly "We simply felt our front four were strong enough to at least contain them until help could arrive," said Grant. "It was just a case of the Vikings defensive line overpowering our offensive line," Coach Otto Graham said. "You've got to run to keep a defense honest. But then we got behind and had to pass." MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL (AP) If Washington's Sonny Jurgensen had time to steal a glance beyond the savage pass rush, the Vikings secondary Sunday was as crowded as a Minnesota pine forest. There were occasions when Jurgensen looked, if he had a moment, and saw no line backersbut seven defensive backs. It was Minnesota Coach Bud Grant's way of containing the Redskin passing attack and It worked into a 27-14 victory which was a shutout until the last minute and 48 seconds. The defense was designed by Vikings secondary coach Jim Carr, who played with Jurgensen at Washington before joining the Minnesota coaching staff.

"If you cash in on opportunities and build up a lead even a threpoint lead have forced a change in the game," Bengtson said. "It would have been nice to have forced the Bears to throw more than staying on the ground." JAI-ALAI OPENS NOV. 15th Reservations for Excitement CALL 844-5211 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Wanted: Competent field goal kicker; good pay for seasonal work from July to (hopefully) mid-January. Although the Green Bay Packers are not considering publishing the above ad, the need for a consistent kicker is very apparent. The Packers, defending National Football League and Super Bowl champions, slipped below .500 again Sunday when Mac Percival's free kick with 26 seconds left gave the Chicago Bears a 13-10 victory. No. 1, we let (Gale) Sayers get too many yards," Packers Coach Phil Bengtson said Mon day. He had just finished watching film of the loss that dropped Green Bay to a 3-4-1 record and a tie for last place In the tight Central Division race. "Then we didn't cash in on our scoring opportunities," he said. Since Don Chandler retired following the Super Bowl, the Packers' kicking game has suffered. Sunday, it was atrocious. Erroll Mann, the latest of many Green Bay kickers this season, missed two field goals from 29 and 44 yards out. Chuck Mercein, a running back, missed one of the two he tried. Any one of the three missed field goals might have changed ings in an off-season trade from Washington, said that the defenseused mostly on obvious third down passing situations completely befuddled Jurgensen. "Jurgy thought we were playing a zone when actually we were in single coverage," said jirause, who intercepted one pass. "After the game, Jurgy came up to me and asked me what we did. He still didn't knrw." Spedesters Bobby Bryant and Charlie West came in for the outside linebackers and Dale Hackbart took the spot at middle guard in the defense. The off-beat defense began from the start five backs and only two linebackers because of the passing reputation Jurgensen brought to town. The Vikings used the two linebackers except on rare occasions. When a long yardage situation faced the Redskins the linebackers took the bench in favor or two more backs. Grant left the passing rush up to his front four of Carl Eller, Gary Larsen, Jim Marshall an Alan Page. I'M WORKING TO ELECT HICKS mn Knaarrniff-MT. as MR.

Spence, a freshman, made three tackles and did a good job of rushing the passer; Howzell accounted for three tackles and knocked down five passes and Wright did a fine job of opening holes in the line. CLEWISTON Coach Tom Roberts named defensive end Keith Carter, who made five tackles and was in on two more against Moore Haven. KENNEDY Linebacker Larry Locke intercepted two passes, returning one for .12 yards, the second for 60 yards and a touchdown and made four tackles against Gifford to earn Coach Ben McCoy's nomination. ri When you live at Sugar Sands youH toss your cares to the breeze and live with ease because that's the kind of island paradise this is!
