Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
Thursday, LETHBRIDGE HCRALD-9 Graham Kelly Short sport After four exhibition contests and three league games, the Calgary Stampeders still haven't won anything in 1974 ex- cept, perhaps, the respect of their opponents. For while the Cowboys are winless in seven starts, they've sure looked good losing! The Stampeders spotted the Lions a commanding lead and then fell short with their comeback to lose 23-20. The following week against Saskatchewan, Calgary ignored the prophets of doom who said the Roughies would eat them alive, and lost squeaker, 24-18. On Monday night, the mighty Edmonton Eskimos were held to only one offensive touchdown as they beat their southern neighbors 20-6. Calgary could have won all three of those affairs. Instead they have the worst record in the Cana- dian Football League. Head coach Jim Wood never thought it was going to be any kind of cakewalk: "Nothing comes easy to a team that's mused the new Cowboy leader. '-'We've got 15 new people in the lineup. When you have a lot of rookies they make mistakes. They might come up with some big plays during a game, but they give up a few big ones, too. You're always scrambling." But Calgary has been unlucky as well. Sure Edmonton's an outstanding football team. But Peter Liske and company were moving the ball well the other night when Rick Galbos fumbled. Dick Dupuis picked it up and scampered 64 yards for a touchdown. Now, how many times does that happen? Ninety 'nine times out of a hundred, the ball would be recovered but the man wouldn't run very fa; with it. Later in the quarter, Liske was leading the Red and White on a long drive that started on his own three yard line. The old veteran rolled out to his left, and hit Moody Jackson on the Eskimo 20. But Liske was smash- ed to the ground reinjuring his painful hips in the process. The drive petered out. What team in the Canadian Football League does well without their regular quarterback? With Edmonton in trouble, the dice came up snake eyes, and Calgary had to go against the best in the west with a rookie quarterback. Against Saskatchewan, Liske had his heroes on the Roughrider seven yard line. Moody Jackson ran a post pattern into the end zone and slipped. He made a valiant attempt to corral the pass, but it was too much for any man to pull off. Later, Rudy Linterman went up for a pass in enemy territory only to have Bill Manchuk fall into the ball with his helmet and Ted Provost sting him in the back with a devastating tackle. There goes the old ball game. The Calgary Stampeders can't buy a break. Besides the ordinary things going wrong, the Cowboys were also victimized by injuries. They came out of their encounter with the Mean Green with no less than eight injuries, that, although minor, had to reduce their effectiveness against the Igloo dwellers in Edmonton. But the crusher came with the in- jury to Liske. Calgary was moving the ball with authority; the defence was playing well. The receivers were getting open all night, but rookie pivot Joe Pisarcik was usually wild. I'm con- vinced that with Pistol Peter at the controls, the Cowboys would have eaten Edmonton alive last Monday night. Oh, well. The Stampeders must take solace in small blessings. Everybody thought that their defence would come up big, but that the offence would be strictly from nowhere. Jim Wood and company, though, have done a very fine job with what they have to work with. Liske looks just as good as any quarterback in the league. His passing has been deadly, he has mixed his plays well, and he has assumed a real leadership role on the club. Although it likely cost them a ball game, Pisarcik was able to get into a genuine game situation and play three quarters. He made mistakes, he couldn't sustain an attack, but he went through the kind of baptism of fire that makes a rookie better. There's some advantage to that. Rick Galbos is coming into his own. I can't see Galbos being a great star in this league but he is going to be a very good journeyman football player who won't beat you very often with his own mistakes. Rick is a hardnosed ballplayer, tough, and hard to bring down. Roughrider coach John Payne made Galbos his last cut in 1973, keeping veteran Bobby Thompson instead. But Galbos is giving the Stampeders an extra receiver, and when used for that purpose, a respectable inside running threat. Moody Jackson is the people's choice in Calgary, a town that prizes good pass receivers Mind you, over the years the fine people of that southern city have been spoiled. Starting with Sugar Foot Anderson, and going through Ernie Warlick, Jack Gotta. Terry Evenshen, Herman Harrison and Gerry Shaw, the foothills fan has always had tremendous pass catchers to enter- tain them While it is too early to tell whether Moody Jackson and new tight end Robert Frazier will be great ones, they've certainly displayed the potential. Calgary has come up with a real plus in the aerial circus department. Wood has to be happy with the play of John Forzani. One of the three Calgary Forzani brothers, John has sat on the bench for most of his career. But now he's getting a good shot at offen- sive guard. Against Edmonton, Forzani had to keep big Leroy Jones at bay for part of the night. Besides looking impressive in that capacity, he also opened a few holes for Rick Galbos and Gene Thomas. With Harry Holton and Geary Murdock coming along nicely on the offensive line, the Stampeders have shown themselves capable of moving the football. CAREERS DAY CARE COORDINATOR LETHBRIDGE Y.W.C.A.
