Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, January 10, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Once -faced amputation of right leg Whipping odds not new to Washington's Kilmer SULLY SAYS -By Pal SuUii-an a :ir w' in Grey Cup of the United Stales, Super Bowl IIIIIII or should that read VII? takes place this Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. This is' ihe second time the Super Bowl has been played in the California city. The first time was in 1961. ihe first Super Bowl. It was the only game of the first six that was not sold out. Sunday's match, featuring the Miami Dolphins and Washington Red- skins, was sold out early last week. Sunday's encounter, to coin an old time worn phrase, is shaping up as one of the "most classic confrontations ever in professional football." The Dolphins, beaten soundly by the Dallas Cow- boys last year, are out to get rid of ihe tag of "no- name defence." On the other hand, a bunch of aging but agile Redskins will be out to prove they are not ihe Similarities between the two clubs are few The Dolphins are and eager. Coach Don Shula. stuns with defeat m 1963 while coaching Baltimore has molded the Dolphins into the most success- ful unit in the Xational Football League this year. Under Simla's guidance the Dolphins were 14-0 during the regular season and have since toppled Cleveland Browns 20-14 and Pittsburgh Steelers 21-17. Tne Redskins, in almost direct contrast, are built around veteran players. Many of them are former Los Aneeles Rams who moved to Washington with head coach George .Allen after he was fired two years ago. Using what he had gathered together from both clubs. has built one of the finest defences in the NFL. Add to this the offensive thrust of running back Larry Brown and wide receiver Charlie Taylor, and Washington is impressive. From a psychological standpoint, the odds may be in Washington's favor. Tne young Dolphins win. in all likelihood, be back for another crack at the Super Bowl honors in years to come. For many of the Redskins this may be their one and only shot at all the marbles. Sentiment, cer- tainly rests with Allen's troups. Sentiment and psychology, however, are not points on the Scoreboard. Besides all that, there is a f 15.000 payday awaiting the winner. So you can bet it will be won in the trenches. LOS ANGELES (API Bill Kilmer shipped ureinendciis odds to mate Super Bow! VII as Renskin quarter- back. He been a one- legged cripple or even dead.
