B 4 THE NEWS. Frederick, Maryland Friday. September 8, 1967 Time Out For Sports Packers And Profits Only Grid Certainties ·With Arthur D. Postal A R K A H I G H SCHOOL football teams swing into action tonijrht and tomorrow, and most college football teams in t h e n a t i o n start their seasons next week. The pros, too. w i l l start their season next week w i t h the A K L showing their elders some disrespect by s t a r t i n g Sunday, a week before the NFL. On the local front, the situation is unclear, with none of the teams in the Tri-State League even claiming one possible victory ahead of time. In the pros, ihe Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos should fight for the Western Division title with Buffalo and Boston fighting it out in the Eastern Division, and in the NFL, the Packers are not claiming a thing In fact, with an estimated 4u m i l l i o n fans expected to see high school, cohege and p r o f e s ^ i r.;i! f o o t b a l l teams play this season, and with pollsters f.mlly coming up w i t h sta tistics showing that football i: the n u m b e r one spectator sport, the only two things that can o 1 said w i t h certainty is that the Packers will take it all aan that the profits will continue their upward trend.

Old honss, of which the Colts -...· made, are more brittle and take longer to heal than younger ones. Ar.d in these places the CoKs are old, especially in the s f f i n s i v e line. Another weakness is the lack of a sound run- ;.iag gaiii?, a mu;t if the team does not want the lineback- e r s I-, blitz a great deal and the de'ensive backs to gamble ..1 .. i. And if t":a gamblers are Willie Wood or Herb Adder;y, you're six points behind. Behind i h j Colts in the Western Division, there isn't much. The Los Angeles Rams are improved, and the Minnesota Vikings have been well supplemented in graduated Michigan State beef, namely Gene Washington and Clinton Jones. But Minnesota is having a problem in the quarterbacking spot, and the defensive backfield is still weak# # * * THE BEARS, WELL, their coach should be replaced, but who's going to teil that to the vwn2r? San Francisco has a good passing combination in Jchn Brcdie, the instant mil- Kcnaire as a result of a merger, to Dave Parks, but long homos don t always win f;o;ball games, while sjund dBfenses do. Detrcit is also a question mnrk. The Lions have a new- coach and the sarr.e old bruisers, including Alex Karras or.d Roger Brown, up front in the defensive line, End the cd ru.incrs, Amos Marsh and newcomers N ; ck Eddy and -Viei Fa-r, but the Lions srem ridden with dissension and ..take a habit of coming up wiih the bad breaks at the wrong time. Be "ore leaving the West, it would be wise to point out · ir-u t'n: league has been sub-divirlsd into a total of four di;ii:ns. The C o t s , Atlanta, Los /ngeles and San Francisco h?.ve bexn put into a g.ouo anpr; p riately named the Coastal Oivisirn because it stretchy from ci,ast-to-coast. Green Bay, -.ciroit.

No r.. " is e:act ; y 5r.;re what purpos? Inis serves, but who are we to ;-r?ue with s ceessiul entrepreneurs. T-i'ZN TL'-iRE IS the East.

Here again, tiie ol.l q u - ^ t i c n o) whether the good o.. nse can beat the gocd cie- icnse is ihe relevant pauu, aithcugn stopping Ditka, Brown ar.d at one and the same time will be extremely difficult Ihe Redskins sh:r.iid wind up third in the combined, taiilici-cea'.ui 1 ;- divISi n. ,'f c/ i: ·. ,j.h?r reason than YVash- iiigion ca:i l u t i a : t l e v v i ; n d it i^.c-y s t their rr.inds to it. ;he «!i\v n is r*. · r.g: r ^.,s y c ^ - , as Ke any grouping .:at rat^s U;e CUi'tiar.d ent ··· a r,u--ily the tourth-best in (he loop.

Jurgensen can throw to Charley l a y l . r , only the b-jst in the ieague last year, peerless Bobby Mitchell and suet-fingered Jerry Smith. Or, i: he wa its to switch oi.', he cm hit Joe- Don Looney or A- D. Whit.ield from the backfield. L:JUNZY AND WHITFIELD. the probable starting backs i^hlnd Jurgensen, are r u c h bet";r than anything the Red- rkins have come up with i.i previous years. Loonsy nas Cooled it. while Whitfield gained cicse to 500 yards last year on the ground. The question is whether the tv-\ wiih help frcm Steve Thurliw, can take the pressu.-e oh a questionable line without the help c' a big f u l l b a c k , ihe Redskins have a comer there, loe. so the expe.ts say, in Ray McDonald, but Mc- 'Ornatd is missing a key ingrcdit^.t in a fastball player, as Thuilow, can take the pressure cit a questionable line with with the hail once he gets it. Yov can't teach a man that, whatever his other skills And then there is that perennial problem, the defensive backfield. For aii the work that has gjne into it, Washington has failed to cime UD with a g.r.d defensive backfield, and must depend en Rickie K'arrls, and Lornie Zanders or Brig Ov.ciis, a move that leaves holes Iu the offense. The defensive, led by Sam Huu and Joe ^J:gens. can handle anything thrown at them up f ont, but this weakness could be fatal. AND '.HEN THERE is the colleges. For names there are Gary Beban of UCLA and John Hanratty of Nctre Dame as probable winners of the K'jisman Trophy, but for winners ihere is no cne to match Michigan State, where Duffy Daughe i t y has again ccme up with a powerhouse, and when Duffy says powerhouse you can belie*e it. UCLA and Michigan S;£te. a f t e r a year's hiatus f.xm the bowl was, should face each ether i i the Rose Bowi a^ain. although the ?core may iiot resemble 1966's UCLA upset- Alabama will igain be string, with the Bear again pushing his b.iys t j ihe t ; p , even if he has to use a whip. Louisiana State, A i m y . Nntr,, Dame, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Texas should also be strong, with Arkansas always a good pick for a bow! gamo. West Virginia has Garrett ;"o;d, but the Mountaineers wli; .»eed a le,t of help in the line to do anything. A l t h o u g h it's the teams that should be of most interest, 'cr some reaso i or another the punt r u l e question is in the back of a let of fans' minds This rule, thou shall not, if thou art an offensive interior lineman, go downfield until the bail is kicked, should create interest, but whether it has an e f f e c t en ball games is another question.
