Just because Vikings are 2'ird afiainst the run Csonka fails to see any mismatch HOUSTON (AP) - When the No. 3'ranked rushing team m the Nationa! Football League meets the 23rd-rated team against the run, you've got a mismatch in the offing for the Super Bowl game. Right? Wrong, says fullback Larry Csonka. the sledgehammer in Miami Dolphins' awesome unround game. "I guarantee you Minnesota won t look like the 23rd team against the rush in the Super Bowl. “ said the 6-toot-2, 235-pound Csonka, who gained 1,003 vards in 1973. Reggie makes public plea NEW YORK (API -Reggae Jackson, slugging outfielder of Oakland Athletics, made a public plea Wednesday for Dick Williams to return as manager of baseball's world champions i want him to come back and I think the players will stand 100 per cent behind me," Jackson said. The American League's Most Valuable Player in 1973 admitted he had not talked to any other players about asking Williams back, but Said he felt all the players would support such a plea. W'illiams at odds with Oakland owner Charles O. Finley and has said he will not manage Oakland next year. Williams wanted to manage New York Yankees but Finley is holding him to a contract which has two years to run. Csonka. who has been battling the flu this week, said the Vikmgs have a “tough defence. ' ■‘You can't use full season statistics as a guide because the only statistic that means anything is how they played in crucial games. And that was good. ■ So often Minnesota was way ahead by the second half and just let the other team run while they played prevent football, keeping the other team from braking the long one. " A good example in support of Csonka s theory is that the Vikings allowed tough-running Dallas Cowboys only 90 yards in the National Conference title game two weeks ago. Csonka. who scored three touchdowns against Oakland Raiders in the American Conference championship game, said Minnesota is the hardest tackling team he has faced. Have you ever had Carl Eller or Alan Page tackle you?" Csonka asked about two members of Minnesota's 'Purple Gang " front four Csonka said linebacker Roy Winston put the hardest tackle Mauch’s nephew first NEW YORK (API - Relatives of major-league players past and present were the popular choice in baseball's tree agent draft Wednesday. Texas Rangers opened the draft by selecting shortstop Roy Smalley and then announced at the conclusion of the first round that they had signed the son of the former major league infielder by the same name, Smalley, a nephew of Montreal Expos manager Gene Mauch, starred at the University of Southern California and had rejected four previous drafts, two of them by Boston Red Sox. San Diego Padres, choosing second, picked infielder Tom Ashford of Covington, Tenn. Ashlord is a brother-in-law of veteran major leaguer Phil Gagliano, Later in the first round. California Angels choose shortstop Lawrence Howser ot West Palm Beach. Fla., brother of Dick Howser, New York Yankee coach and a former majorleague infielder. •‘Let it be sufficient to say I'm pleased but very excited." the 21-year-old Smalley said in Los Angeles. Smalley's father, a former Chicago Cubs shortstop, said: "It’s an ego trip for me just to be compared to my son.” Half of the 24 first-round selections came from California. and 13 of the players chosen were pitchers including Daniel Smith, who also plays first base and the outfield and was chosen by San Francisco Giants from Los Angeles Valley Junior College,    . Cleveland Indians, choosing third, selected outfielder-third baseman Steve Cook of Miami. The next three choices were all pitchers—Morris Cooper of Fort Worth, Tex., by Philadelphia Phillies; John Caneira. a righthander from Naugatuck. Conn., by Milwaukee Brewers and Larry McWilliams, a lefty from Hurst. Tex., by Atlanta Braves. Chicago White Sox, choosing seventh, picked third baseman Kevin Bell of Covina, Calif., and Chicago Cubs, next in the selections, took Eric Grandy, a first baseman-outfielder, from Baltimore. After California took Howser. Montreal picked right-handed pitcher Joe Kerrigan of Philadelphia and New York Yankees selected outfielder Ken Phelps of Seattle. Then the teams went back to pitchers, with Pittsburgh Pirates- taking right-hander Dan Bishop of Kent. Wash.; Minnesota Twins selecting lefty Mark Lockwood of Anaheim, Calif., and St. Louis Cardinals choosing righthander John Urrea of Norwalk, Calif. Detroit Tigers selected outfielder Randall Nall of Glendora. Calif., and Houston Astros took outfielder Joe Cannon of Pensacola, Fla. on him he can remember in a regular-season game against the Vikings last year. 'It was a devastating tackle,'■ Csonka said. 'I was stretched out on the sidelines and coach Don Shula told me You're not hurt.' What I told him back is something you can't print. I'm not to the point where I'm so dedicated I lhplay with a broken back." Winson, middle linebacker Jeff Siemon and Wally Hilgenberg are sure tacklers. Csonka said Winson said' "1 think the way to stop them is simply to have a total team defence that puts out and beats each man in front of him. "They're very versatile in their running. They can run inside. they can run outside. They run all sorts of variations, "You go into every football game, no matter who you’re playing to shut off the running game and make a team pass.” Siemon said; 'My biggest concern is with Csonka because most of his plays will be in my area. I’m concerned with Mercury Morris in a collective way because I think he can do more things to hurt you than Csonka. ‘ He can break the big play where Csonka's' gonna get his five, six, seven, 10 yards. Morris has the ability io break the big one. Those three backs Csonka, Morris and Jim Kiick give them everything they need in an offensive backfield attack."

Most valuable O.J. Simpson of the Buffalo Bills was named National Football League's Most Valuable Player Wednesday in a landslide vote. Burton conducts one-day clinic It was no race for MVP NEW YORK (AP) - Buffalo Bills' 0. J. Simpscn. who set an all-time National Football League rushing record with 2.003 yards this year, was named the league's Most Valuable Player in an Associated Press poll Wednesday. Simpson, who earlier was named the Offensive Player of the Year and was a unanimous choice in the balloting for the all-pro team, compil^ a huge margin in the MVP voting by three-man panels of sportswriters and broadcasters who cover the 26 NFL Learns.    - The only other players receiving votes in the MVP poll were Los Angeles Rams passing battery of quarterback John Hadl and wide receiver Harold Jackson. Each received two votes. The rest ot the ballots went tto Simpson, whose rushing feats were the talk of the league all season. O. J. started the year with a single game rushing record of 250 yards against New England Patriots and ended it with another 200-yard day against New York Jets. In between, he ground out yardage week after week and stayed on the trail of Jim Brown s NFL rushing record of 1.863 yards set a decade before. JETS BEFUDDLED He came into the season's final game with 1.803 yards and needed 61 to break Brown s mark. The game was meaningless except for 0, J.'s bid to get into the record book. Simpson wasted no time, shredding the Jets' line repeatedly early in the game and shattering the record before the first quarter was over Then the powerfully-built graduate of Southern California went after the 2.000-yard barrier, a plateau once considered unthinkable.
