New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 15, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Patriots defense solid for Parcells Sports Briefs Co wboy MO ByBARPYWILNER AP Football Writer FOXBORO Mass No wonder Bill Parcells looks so cdmfortabteon the New England Patriots sideline these days He finally has a defense that doesnt make him shudder Parcells won two Super Bowls with a powerhouse defense and an efficient if not overwhelming offense with the New York Giants For much of his fouryear stint in New England though the Patriots have scored lots of points and given up far too many to please Parcells Until the last six weeks when a turn around began that has helped carry the Patriots into their first Super Bowl in 11 years Ever since being blown out at home 348 by Denver the Pats have allowed only 73 points in seven games including just nine in the playoffs The defense has yielded one touchdown in the last four games The defense is pulling its middle linebacker Ted Johnson said The last 1 months or so the defense is playing at the level we all knew it could t playtit I know weve been talking about not getting respect but theyve got to take notice Sure do The Patriots are controlling games with a defense that lacks stars but has developed some depth and versatility Throughout the recent streak of strong play defensive coordinated Al Groh has shuffled linemen The secondary has got ten healthy and linebackers Johnson and Chris Slade have been particularly effec tive Against Jacksonville in the AFC Cham pionship game safety Willie Clay made an end interception to stop the Jaguars last true threat Cornerback Otis Smith signed after he was cut by the Jets of all teams earlier this season went 47 yards with James Steward fumble for the hard did not show up when did do things wrong wod tacklo tho guy for a loss to four i Parcels clinching touchdown Collins made the stop on Mark Brunells quarterback sneak on fourth down in the third quarter And rookie linebacker Tedy Bruschi picked off another pass We played very well Par cells said Heres the difference We played so hard the mental errors we made did not show up Even when we would do wrong wed tackle the guy for a loss three to four times We have to be careful not to overload this team they were a little bit overloaded Sunday Once we got the secondary back we had more depth We were in dire straits back there On the front line we arent using a couple guys three or four plays and others 72 plays Now were playing six to seven guys 40 or 30 plays All of those players are beginning to believe and the AFC title game will fuel the faith The Patriots held Jerome Bettis to 43 yards rushing the week before then yielded the same figure to Jacksonvilles Natrone Means They limited Mark Brunei to 190 yards passing and few improvised big plays On defense were making plays not just keeping it status quo and were giving our offense chances to said John son a secondyear linebacker McMahon Beebe to give Packers Super advice By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Sports Writer GREEN BAY Wis AP Brett Favrc doesnt plan on mooning any helicopters and his NFLimposcd alcohol ban means he wont be tearing up Bourbon Street like Jim McMahon did a decade ago But Favrc and the rest of the NFC champion Green Bay Packers will get some advice this week from McMahon their backup quarterback who owns what the rest of them so dearly desire a Super Bowl ring Coach Mike Holmgren is turning to McMahon and receiver Don Beebe his only other player with Super Bowl expe rience to help prepare the Packers 153 for the Super Bowl against

playing New England every thing he went through the year after he lost the championship game all these Favrc said Like McMahon Beebe is a part of Super Bowl lore The Packers third wide receiver was with the Buffalo Bills teams that lost four straight Super Bowls from 199093 His big moment came late in the Bills 5217 loss to Dallas after the 1992 season when he chased down Leon Lett and punched the ball out of his hands at the goal line to prevent another Cowboys score Beebe has been waiting all year to serve as a Super Bowl consultant and hes already talking to his teammates about dealing with all the distractions Its good we have two weeks This week you get all the gaibage taken care of Then we go down there to play a football Beebe said We dont go down there to have fun You can enjoy yourself but keep it to a limit because youre down there to play a football game And after the football game you can spend as much time as you want enjoying Holmgren loves listening to the articu late Beebe and he doesnt mind hearing out the irreverent McMahon either like the little bad angel and the lit tle good Holmgren said patting each shoulder Ive got Beebe on one side and McMahon on the other That should cover most things Beebe said hes happy to help out but hes going to have to leave some things to McMahon Jim knows how to go to the Super Bowl and win I Beebe said Holmgren won two Super

Late winter and early spring are great times of the year for bass anglers to be fishing with crankbaits Crankbaits are primarily made of hard plasticand are designed to dive to a certain depth depending upon the size and angle of bill on the front of the Jhcre are also sonic crankbaits which are lipless like the Bill Lewis RatLTrap Crankbaits arc good lures to use especially this time of year because they can be used to cover different layers or depths of water They will work better than slow baits like worms and jigs to locale fish because they cover much more water faster Anyone who has ever spent any time fishing these type of lures has undoubtedly experienced loosing fish Crankbaits have treble hooks on The Deals are Better them Usually the fish will jump out of the water trying to throw the lure The weight of the lure is heavy it tears a much larg er hole than nor mal in the mouth of the fish and unfortunately a large percentage of fish come loose before get ting them into the boat A couple of years ago a new fish hook was introduced by Mustad called the Triple Grip This treble hook is a specialty hook designed to be used on crankbaits At Keith Warren Texas Angler first look I thought it would never work The unusual bend seemed too radical to keep a fish I was wrong These Triple Grip hooks are the mriswerlfor crankbaiters who loose fish Its unbelievable how well they work Prior to using Triple Grips Id loose about 30 of the fish I hooked on crankbaits Now my ratio of fish com ing off has dropped to These Triple Grips are so good tha many lure manufacturers are starting to put them on as standard cquipmen on their crankbaits Catch fish with them one time and youll see how remarkable this hook really is Ill bet youll wind up getting rid o alt your old treble hooks and replacing them with Mustads Triple Grip Keith Warren is the Host of the Texas Angler Television Show which broadcasts statewide Check local I listings for the day and
