By The Associated Press

Landry likes the Giants
DALLAS (AP) — Tom Landry, whose Dallas Cowboys were responsible for one of two losses by the New York Giants this year, picks the NFC champions to win the Super Bowl over the Denver Broncos—but just bardy.
“It’s hard not to like the Giants the way they are playing,” said Landry, who was a Giants assistant before taking over the Cowboys in i960.
While his mind favors New York. Landry said his heart is with the Denver Broncos and Coach Dan Reeves.
"My sentiment is with Danny,” Landry said. “He’s one of my former players and coaches and I’ll be pulling for him."
Landry 's Cowboys nipped the Giants 31-28 in the season opener but fell 17-14 later in the season when Dallas also lost quarterback Danny White to a broken wrist.
Dallas lost 29-14 to Denver in a meeting at Mile High Stadium.
“Usually the best defensive team wins in the Super Bowl,” Landry said. “I think the Giants have the best
defense, but we learned Denver is pretty good, too.
“I think it will be very close. I don’t subscribe to the blow-out theory .”
The Giants are eight-point favorites over the Broncos. “Denver won’t be able to run much, so it will rffperte on what kind of game (quarterback John) Elway has,” Landry said. “He had a great game against Clevdand and that could carry over.”
Landry said he talked by telephone with Reeves on Monday.
“Danny was excited,” Landry said. “We talked about that 98-yard (game-tying touchdown) drive against Cleveland. You don’t see many of those.”
Asked if Reeves wanted any Ups on beating the Giants, Landry laughed.
“Are you kidding?” Landry said. “He doesn’t need my advice. He’s in the Super Bowl and I’m on crutches.” Landry recently underwent surgery to repair an old football knee injury.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — An attorney for Dwight Gooden says no decision has boon made on how the New York Mats pitcher might plead to charges arising from a Dec. 13 altercation with Tampa police that ended with the arrest of the star right-hander and four companions.

“I want to make it crystal-clear to everybody within the community that I view these particular offenses as among the most serious we investigate,” James told reporters. “I can assure this community that these cases wUl be dealt with in a very stem fashion.”
Tho two third-degree felony charges against Gooden, who posted a 174 record in helping the Meta to the world championship last season, both carry a maximum sentence of five years In prison and a $5,000 fine.
Ron Cacciatore, an attorney for Gooden, said he had not had an opportunity to talk with Charles Ehriich, another lawyer tor the baseball player, or review the specific charges. He added that a decision has not bean —aguilt possible Gooden strategy at a Jan. 21 arraignment.
Ehriich was in a meeting Monday afternoon and did not return a telephone eau from The Associated Praos. Jim Neader, Gooden’s agent, said: “Dwight and I have no comment.”
However, Ehriich told Newsday today that the Wing of charges was not a surprise and did not preclude an agreement.
“I anticipated this,” Ehriich said. “Dwight also anticipated this; we both knew it was just a matter of time untU formal charges wore filed.
“Today's action means the chartae won’t be dropped, but they could conceivably be reduced. No (feel has been worked out, but any number of possibilities stUl exist," he said. "No final decision has bosn made. I don’t, expect he could got any Jeu time. He's a first offender... (Jail time) is usuaUy reserved for guys with records and bad attitudes ”
