PHILADELPHIA CAP) General manager Pete Relzlaff of Philadelphia Eagles doesn't agree with his boss. Retzlaff be- lieves Hie Eagles, despite a record of 2-10-1, have made progress in the National Foot- ball League tin's season. His boss, owner Leonard Tose, is considering firing Ret- zlaff and coach Jerry Williams if the Eagles don't turn in a convincing victory Sunday against Pittsburgh Steelers. "I was hoping for a better record Uiis says Ret- zlaff, who became general man- ager two seasons ago when Tose bought the Eagles for "I suppose there are those who don't feel we've made any progress. I don't feel that way. I wish the progress was more reflective in the won-lost record. "We have a lot of young ball players and up to the Washing- ton game last Sunday they showed steady improvement. They were eliminating mis- takes. They seemed to indicate considerable potential. Only time and maturity appeared necessary for them to put it all together. "We were in all of our games until the last two minutes but two, and I think a good draft and an acquisition or two by trade can make the margin of difference between defeat and victory." DEFENDS COACH While Tose is indicating he may get rid of Williams, Ret- zlaff stands by the coach he hired away from Calgary Stam peders of the Canadian Football League. "As far as I am concerned right now, Jerry's situation has not changed. He'll be coachinS next year." Both Retzlaff and Williams are to the second year of three- year contracts. Retzlaff said Williams has had a lough job considering ,hcrc have been eight or nine cases of surgery, including such New Westminster 4 PRO BASKETBALL NBA Los Angeles 118 Cincinnati 10!
