(AP) — Minnesota Vikings linebacker Wally Hilgenberg says personnel still decides most football games, but it doesn’t hurt to throw a surprise or two at your opponent.  “Pro football rules and tactics have changed so much the last year, you’d be dead if you didn’t show new looks," Hilgenberg said as Minnesota prepared to host Los Angeles on Sunday for the National Football Conference championship.  “Not more than a couple of Nears ago you could sit in one defense and keep your offense standardized. But now you need an edge.  “I know ifs still the personnel that decides who wins or loses, mostly, but it never hurts to surprise them a little ”  Hilgenberg, an 11-year veteran at left linebacker, was credited by St. Louis quarterback .lim Hart for playing a  Wally Hilgenberg  big part in shutting off running back Terry Metcalf rn Saturday’s 30-14 victory over the Cardinals in the first round of the NFC playoffs.  Metcalf break anv  wasn't allowed to long gams, being  held to 55 yards rushing and 43 pass receiving. Hilgenberg and the other Vikings linebackers were credited with doing an exceptional job of containing the dangerous scat-back,  “The way we’re going, we can beat anybody — the Rams, Oakland or Pittsburgh,” Hilgenberg said. “We spent all year trying to get it together and I think we’re there It’s a helluva feeling.  “Our defense is going after jHMiple the way we used to And we’ve got an offense that can score from any place.  “We even look different — the five-man rush, something a little new every week in the offense.  “People might not recognize the Vikings offense from a couple of years ago. You use what the personnel allows you to use.

In the latter part of this season, however, (oath Bud Grant has begun using a five-man rush with six defensive backs in some passing situations. He also occasionally puts 13 or 14 men in the defensive huddle so that the opposing quarterback must call the play without knowing how the defense will set up.

Studs can usually be located by looking along the baseboard to ascertain where it has been nailed to the studding, lf this is not possible, try a stud finder, a smoll magnet, that as you slide it over the woll, points to the nail in the stud.  When hanging kitchen cabinets, furniture, or any other heavy pieces on the wall, it is a good idea to fasten a short board to the studs, then fasten the piece to the board. It s easier to pioce the board and get the screws into the center of the studes than holding a heavy item in pbce and driving the screws at the same time, in addition to which you can use screw* where without regard to stud spacing.
