(Arf.J Brortor W«wi — Isturday, December 1,IMf- Pag* levM Only Two Sonny, John Are On Target WASHINGTON, D.C.-(NEA)-The football guy used to be • coach in the pros and still keeps to the scene in an official capacity. He got to talking about quarterbacks, the men of distinction. And who are the class guys in the National Football League. "We're only talking he said, "about two." One of them has to be John Unitas, the nonpareil leader ef the Baltimore Colts. John is 34 years old and has never looked better on a team that has gone through 11 straight games undefeated. But how about the other? It could be Bart Starr, winner of the Jim Thorpe Trophy a year ago, and still a force lor . the Green Bay Packers despite a siege of injuries in '67. Or Dr. Frank Ryan, a gutsy performer for Cleveland desoite numerous blimps. Maybe Roman Gabriel, stolid and solid as oak now that he has wedged in as the No. 1 man.on the Los .' Angeles Rams. Possibly Fran Tarkenton, who keeps the New York Giants scrambling in contention. Forget it. The other guy has to be Christian Adolph Jurgensen. Sonny, to you. "If you had to pick the best passer in football right now," said the former coach, "it's Jurgensen—no contest. Remember, he doesn't have the team to go with him, like John does. "The outstanding quality about Jurgensen is that he utilizes the talent the Redskins have as well as anybody I've ever seen. If he were with a team like Dallas, it's hard to tell what he'd do." Just to cue in, Jurgensen has already, in his 11-year career (the last four with Washington), passed for more than 400 yards in a game on four different occasions. Last season he set a new NFL record for completions and is clicking them pff again at a rate thjs fall which will break his own record. There is one |9W in applying statistics to Jurgensen. In his entire career, Jurgensen has been the starting quarterback only one year on a team which won more-games than it lost— and that was bask in 1951 with the Philadelphia Eagles, So you couldn't exactly call Mm a winner. "The same," continued our expect, "applied to-Y. A- Tittle When t)e was with the San Francisco 49ers for 10 years," .It was suggested there's also a parallel in (he limberness of Sonny's arm and Tittle's proclivity for passJngrY. A. threw more than any other quarterback in pro history, if you include his service in the old All-America conference. "Tittle,"' sneered the football guy, "was never in this ., guy.'s class. The thing about Jurgensen is that he can throw ; the bal)- between people. Surround your receiver''with a couple of guys, put a linebacker in the way, and Spnny'll still get the ba|l to him. "Give me ejther of them^-John or Sonny. They're the class of the league. Starr can think with them, but he can't pass with then; when it comes to 'delivering the bog bomb." Otto Graham was probed fpr affirmation of Jurgensen's talents. Even if he is Sonny's coach. Otto doesn't, blow smoke. When he took over the Redskjns lasf year, the first |tem on his agenda was a long talk with Sonny, who had a reputation as a bon vivant. ''I talked to him about image," said Otto. "Take a Coke Into a night club and people'll think you're drunk." Sonny hasn't taken any balloon tests the last two years. He.has made the grade with Graham. •"He isn't a classic faker," admitted Otto, "and he 1 ? not a goqd runner. But he knows football. He's a coach out there. And when it conies to throwing a (qqtbajj, I wouldn't trade Sonny for anybody, John Unites included. He's a.s good a passer as I've ever seen." Otto, of course, couldn't see himself In the mirror when he was passing the Browns to championships. HUNTING and FISHING Mrs. (Hunter of. Blytheville wiled one day last week, to (sheck on th? (ker regulations concerning Big Lake. After receiving the information sha got on the subject of fishing there. She said she didn't appreciate me criticizing their's pnd Tim William'* filhing SJWl •o much. She added she and her husband had done real well there this year and/was about the flnly place they fished. She laid even, though Sh* was "mad" about the critgiam, the tnjoyed the column very much end withed I would write Wished I would write more. That's the kindest words j'v« heard in many * moon. I had becun to suspect m« and th« proofreader wtit th» only ones reading the column. Mrt. Ounter, it'i not my intention to run Big Lake down just to have something to gripe about but maybe it's a case of an oldtlmer remembering how good a recreation area it use to be and not understanding why it wai al- moit dtitroyed (or wme other Interests.. It just teems thin area of the state doesn't have very good representation when it comes to improvements. It was born* out this pait week when it wan announced Lake Neark was apparently • dead isssue. On the other hand, Mr. Eli- JiA Wells wiled this week M te.ll about his, party killing, three deer and he wanted to knew Why I didn't gripe more about the "terrible fishing" situation in this part of the state. To tell the truth, half of th? columns indicated how bad the situation wa?. in my opinion and others, I was cpji- cerned people would begin to think I was a habitual griper with a negative complex. Your opinions are appreei, ated whether you agree or disr agree with the columns. W« should have more people expressing their opinons because the recreation areas belong to everyone and the only salvation seems to be for the public to demand mor« and better facilities.
