Intramural Action Not all the basketball action this season at Garden City High School is confined to sophomore, junior varsity and varsity teams. High schoolers also are Involved in an Nothing to Lose.. .Everything to Lose By The Associated Press One team has nothing to lose, Ihe other leam everything. The siluations almost are mirror images. But the words from the coaches couldn't be more similar. The New York Jets are 2-8 and going nowhere this National Football League season. And they are thinking of starting Richard Todd, their quarterback with the bum knee, against powerful Pittsburgh Sunday. The Oakland Raiders are 8-2 and trying lo gel back to the Super Bowl they won a year ago. And they are thinking of starting Ken Stabler, their quarterback with the bum knee, against bumbling Buffalo Monday night. Todd was injured three weeks ago in a game againsl Miami. Stabler was hurt last Sunday againsl San Diego. Also Sunday, it will be Baltimore at Denver and Los Angeles al Cleveland in a pair of games matching divisional leaders, plus Dallas at Washington, Minnesota at Green Bay, Allanla at Tampa Bay, the New York Giants at Cincinnati, Philadelphia at New England, Kansas City at Houston, San Diego at Seattle and New Orleans at San Francisco. Joe Greene, Pittsburgh's fierce defensive tackle, is Ihe guy who will be going after Todd — or his replacement, rookie Matt Robinson. And he can't figure out why the Jets, building their hopes of the next decade on Todd, would want to use Joe Namath's heir against the Steelers. "If Todd is the Jets' whole future, as they say, and he is under par, then they-shouldn't play him. They're 2-8. the game can't possibly mean much to them in that position." It means a lot to the Steelers, 6-4 and tied for first wilh Cleveland in the tight American Football Conference Central Division. Baltimore's lead over Miami is l'/£ games in the AFC East, so it appears the teams' critical game will be Monday night, Dec. 5, when the Colts and Dolphins meet at Miami. The Rams, whose National Football Conference West lead over Atlanta is two games, have won their last four games against Cleveland. Dallas will be trying to widen its lead over St. Louis to two games in the NFC East and virtually kayo the Redskins from the playoffs, while Minnesota hopes to regain its onegame edge over Chicago in the NFC Central. As il has every week since it became a member of the league 24 games ago, Tampa Bay is trying to get its inaugural victory. The Buccaneers, who have scored a league-low 53 poinls this season, go against the Atlanta Falcons, who have allowed a league-low 83. intramural cage program with games played on Monday and Thursday nights. Here Todd Small nabs a rebound out of hands of teammate Chris Anderson and away from Tom Herrera, left, of the opposing team. Games run 30 minutes each.
