Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta November The HereM W Graham Kelly selli defense wins football 1 That old axiom certainly held true last Sunday when toe Ottawa Rough Riders showed up with a ferocious defense and defeated the Edmonton Eskimos 2MB in the Grey Cup game. It is fitting that Charlie a lineman of all given the car award as the outstanding per former on the field. Usually the award goes to quarter- backs or but this year the football writers got things in perspective when awarding the new car. Ottawa began to get the up- per hand late in the first quarter when the defensive line shut off Roy Bell and harassed the quarterbacks constantly. Previous to. Rick Cassata had hit Rhome Nixon perfectly on a fly pattern for a touchdown. Ed- monton came storming back to the Ottawa 12. At that Tom Wilkinson rolled to his right and was smashed to the artificial turf by Jerry Campbell and Wayne Smith. Versatile Dick Adams also got a shot at the gutsy little Eskimo pivot. Poor Wilkie had broken ribs and was gone until the fourth quarter. Things just might have been different if Wilkinson had remained in the game. the Eskimos came up with some key interceptions to stop Ottawa touchdown drives. Ron Dave and John Lagrone mounted a fine rush against Rick Cassata. But I have seldom seen the Eskimo linebackers play so poorly. Sam Britts and Marty along with Caeser Belsar were constantly victimized by Cassata screens and safety- valve throws. On Jim Even- son's 18-yard run for a Ottawa blockers swept the middle and outside linebackers making big Jim's gallop a great deal easier. But certainly the poor play of the linebackers and the excellent performance of the Ottawa offensive line had to rate as and most definitely key factors in determining the outcome. Naturally Rick Cassata has to feel good about his perfor- mance. Although he twice Lots of football people were happy for Jack Gotta. Jocko is one of the really good guys in the loved by all. Just a couple of years when Ottawa was struggling to win an exhibition the Capital Hill vultures were croaking for his scalp. Jack feels as because he is a man who breaks all the old conventions about coaching football. This year it but if it ever goes you can be cer- tain that Jocko will be seeking the ranks of the unemployed. Gotta always seemed to me to be the lightweight of the Saskatchewan staff. Jimmy Duncan appeared to be the real brains behind Eagle Keys but obviously such was not the case. The real difference between Gotta and Duncan is the ability of the Ot- tawa coach to not only com- municate well with his but to get them to put out 100 percent effort for him. Duncan couldn't do that in Calgary even when he won the Grey Cup. When Calgary lost Wayne the writing was on the wall for Bwana Jim Duncan. It took another season to catch up to but catch up it did Gotta doesn't like curfews. He goes easy in practice. He eliminates bed checks. All of this makes him very popular with his players. But if Ot- I don't really think so. I was surprised at the manner in which the Riders dispatched the Eskimo offen- sive line. Scales and friends are one of the best offensive line aggregates in the Canadian game. But Smith and Laputka constantly shut off the running and were successful in rushing Lemmerman and Wilkinson as well. That pass rush made it much easier for Ottawa's linebackers and deep backs to protect against the pass. Ed- monton receivers had trouble getting into the especi- ally during the second half. Wayne Tosh and Al Marcellin did a masterful job against the Eskimo receivers with George McGown rendered largely ineffective. Tyrone Walls dropped passes all over the place largely because of a broken left hand. Larry Highbaigh was a study in frustration with the sticky Marcellin after him. Garry Lefebvre took up the slack to some winning the Canadian Player of the Game Award in the process. But the Ottawa defense took Edmon- ton's game away from largely due to the efforts of the'Capital Punishment their fine front four. made the poor quarterback's mistake of throwing a pass when he should not Cassata for the most part effectively exploited the op- position pass and mixed his plays well. Why sports writers get down on a guy because he had some poor per- formances in the past is beyond me. During the 1972 Cassata led Ottawa to a record of eleven wins and three losses. During the 1972 Cassata led Ottawa to a record of eleven wins and three losses. During the season just 'Rico' played very effectively on several occasions. Ottawa would likely have been stronger with a healthy Jerry but remember that the-former Calgary star is a veteran player who has had a wealth of playoff experience. whom his coach claims will someday win the vindicated himself in fine fashion by directing his club to victory. Gotta is one of the Saskatchewan alumni i'n coaching ranks. When Eagle Keys was in he had Jack Gotta and Jim Duncan on his staff. When Gotta Jim Spavital signed along with Dave Skrein. All of these worthy of went on to head coaching jobs with Duncan and Jocko winning Grey Cups. Dave Skrein took his club to the Grey Cup last year. Spavital and of ended up as casualties of the 1973 campaign. tawa loses next manage- ment and fans will look upon the Gotta style of coaching with a jaundiced view. And that for the last four years in a the Grey Cup Champion has miss- ed the play-offs the following season. and Hamilton have all fallen from grace in one short season. Jack might also remember that two of those teams fired their coaches soon after. Sleep Jack.
