N. PHONE 327-7610 Graham Kelly There is no position in all of professional sport quite like that of quarterback as far as confidence and leadership is concerned The general, the attacker the man who puts it all together If you have a good quarterback you are an important step along the road to success Without one, the situation is pretty bleak, indeed This Sunday features the battle for first place in the Western Conference Saskatchewan sits atop the standings two points ahead of the Edmonton Eskimos A win tor Edmonton will move them Both pilots had a great deal of respect for the opposition Saskatchewan is a physical ball club very tough defen- sively commented Lemmer- man They are well coached and don t make mistakes They play together as a team especially that great offense of theirs You can tell they have a lot of experience Bruce had par- ticular praise for the Rider rookies in the defensive backfield such as Jim Elder Ted Provost and Lome Richardson That whole defense is a hard hitting bunch Charlie Collins at mid die linebacker is just great So When 1 pointed out that Saskatchewan had beaten Ed- monton badh statistically but not on the Scoreboard in their last encounter the 11 year veteran wasn t concerned That was just one of those games We know we can move the ball into their end zone We ve moved the ball well on evervone else in the league and scored We 11 put the ball across their goalhne Lemmerman disputes this claim from his rival Our defense hasn t allowed more than 14 points a game through the last half of the season They ve held us close when the offense wasn t moving the ball That s been an important factor too because our last eight games were decided b> less than a touchdown We won half of those and tied one How does a quarterback get mentally ready for an impor- tant game9 Lancaster said Not only himself, but everyone on the team has to have a talk with himself before game time But you never really know if you re mentally ready to play until you re actually playing Then you find out if you can call the right plays and execute them Then >ou know if you are sen- sitive to the situation and can take advantage of It Lemmerman agreed com pletely but injected a note of caution Against the Lions in B C I could tell from the start we were on The leather was really popping on the line I threw nine completions in a row and felt tremendous Then I threw an interception and came back down to earth I asked the pivots what we could watch for in the early Lancaster was quite concerned about converting second downs to firsts Lemmerman felt that more variety should be used on first downs Usually you run on first downs, and pass on second You can look for us to show more variety on our first down plays I think we'll probably pass more on first downs than is usually the case This of course, may be good strategy considering the injury to blocking back Gene Foster As far as game strategy was concerned Lancaster said, We know what we can do We 11 do it I like to attack the defense at its strongest point If we beat their strength, the weaknesses will be easy But the whole key to all of this is execution We know what to do we have to execute our plays The key to successful into a tie for first, with the Esks taking the crucial playoff bye on the strength of season record against the Jol- ly Green Giants from Regina No two people on the field at Clarke Stadium Sunday will be more important than quarter- backs Ron Lancaster, Bruce Lemmerman (or perhaps, Tom Wilkinson) Success or failure could well depend on what kind of day the quarter- backs will have To find out their expectations, I inter- viewed both Ronnie Lancaster of Saskatchewan, and the Eskimos Bruce Lemmer- man is Ted Dushmski Besides be- ing physically tough, they are opportunists Make a mistake, they pounce on it and usually score Ronnie Lancaster, although respecting the Eskimos, had some reservations 'They've changed defensively over the years Edmonton isn't as sound on defense as they used to be although re activating Dick Dupuis is certainly a plus for them They aren't a par- ticularly physical team They rely more on finesse, on technique to beat you They don t blitz very much Basically they're a very fine, solid football team There s nothing wrong with our defense Both quarterbacks agreed that they played better when the challenge was great Their words were identical "I don t like to play for nothing Lemmerman added, I like playing games that mean something I like pressure Especially when you have a good club I have a lot of con- tidente in the people I work with Every game someone different picks us up defen- sively and makes a big play We get the ball And with Dave Cutler on the club, we know that every time we cross midfieid we have a good chance to score Cutler helps tremendously With him around we don t panic We can stick with what we do well stages to see how the game was going Lancaster said First I want to see how our defense is plaving If they are doing a good job then I can play a more conservative brand ot ball Then I want to see if I can establish a ground game to get ball control If I can do that we 11 stay in control and come out on top Lem- merman concurred "We want to see if we can get the ground game going Then we analyze the defenses and react to them Our game plan is very flexible We can change when we have to Another fac- tor too is Tom Wilkinson I m a drop back passer, Tom goes for the roll out We can employ two entirely different styles against any defense The working relationship between Wilkie and I is just great It gives us an edge execution is experience We ve got the experience When asked why the Riders seem to be a fourth quarter ball club Ronnie icplied, I m not sure that s a trait of our team We just decide when we want to go out there and get the job done, and we do Edmonton has also depended on last minute heroics "We been 2 tie conservative in reacting to defenses We think something will work, but we tend to probe longer than we Lemmerman commented "I think you'll see us react a lit- tle sooner this time Both are confident of vic- tory, although Lancaster more so The Rider pivot feels his dub has the experience and talent to win Lemmerman feels that Cutler gives his team a tremendous advantage I MUST MISSUS, YOU'RE KKP PLACE REMARKABLY CLEAN WHILE Eight in
