Praise is plentiful crew By ED SHEARER ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) Mighty Minnesota, Seeking a second straight journey to the Super Bowl, picked up a bat- tered admirer Vikings' former coach, rOorm Van Brocklin. The Vikings, posting their 10th victory in 11 games, flogged Van Brocklin's At- lanta Falcons in the regular- Eeason finale 37-7, avenging a 10-3 loss to Hie Falcons here j one year ago, one that snapped Minnesota's 12-game winning streak. Asked to compare the 1969 and 1970 Vikings, Van Brock- lin recited the scores of last year and this year. "That is the difference in this year and last. They're a big, strong football he said. Cuozzo is a better passer than Joe Kapp and he showed that this Van Brocklin said. "He threw very well and their receivers got position on ns. They beat us and gocd." Cuozzo, missed the two His passing set up two other scores in a 21-point second pe- riod that put the Vikings in command.

Tlie Vikings face San Fran- cisco, West Division champs, next Sunday in the playoffs. The 49ers won the division Sunday with a 33-7 conquest of Oakland. Neither Cuozzo nor coach Bud Grant was ready lo ex- press preferences on playoff foes, since San Francisco didn't clinch its title until Minnesota was well under way on its trip back home. "You got to beat some- Grant said. "You can't play Boston or New Orleans." NO PROBLEM Cuozzo said his ankle gave him ho trouble during the game. Asked if he felt any pres- sure replacing Kapp, who failed to come to contract terms with Minnesota this season. "Yes, I felt some Cuozzo said, "but this win today let us match our 12-2 record of last year. However, Ihe only pressure was in step- ping into a position where the only different person on the starting team is you." Now, Cuozzo added, "we need just three more."
