Pacific Stars And Stripes (Newspaper) - January 12, 1967, Tokyo, Japan Meredith magnificent in title game by Charles Moret Dallas its time to Nail something that seems to be charge or allegation or theory that Don Meredith was the Goat of the National football league title one Story actually said that Meredith two other stories referred to him As the Goat in Dallas 3427 loss to this is so patently ridiculous that it hardly bears signifying by but the trouble is that left unanswered it could be accepted As part of the game rec the Goat for what his 15 completions in 31 attempts again is the finest pass defense in pro football for his just Plain Superb More about that for his so called cracking under pressure like when for his ability to Lead did any of his critics watch the big Dallas quarterback in the closing minutes he was talking to his team mates in com manding tones 4 the simple truth is Sheredith time and again out guessed the powerful professional Green Bay for instance in the opening period when the packers went ahead 140 on two Quick everybody in the including the Greer Bay defensive exp Etc Meredith to Start a desperate Aerial he did just the of he sent Dan Reeves and Don Perkins on Quick slant through the line and before the packers caught the cowboys were knocking at the door Reeves went in the mar Gin was Only one Meredith brought his team Back swiftly and smartly for the Ying touchdown a Short while he called a sound game in the second and third periods but real y out guessed the packers in the Burth Quarter when trailing by by the one play hat seems to have been Over looked came with Green Bay ahead 3420 Midway in the fourth Meredith fired a Short pass in he left Flat to one of his receivers who caught the Ball and fumbled when tackled the Ball was bouncing around in Dallas territory and a couple of Green Bay defenders had solid shots but could not hold the the Man who it got Over to the sidelines arid managed to touch the Ball just before it went out of that enabled dal Las to retain lets losing by 14 Points with half the final period it seemed even that Meredith would go to his flying split Bobby but the packers figured that Way Don crossed them he hit Frank Clarke on a deep Fly pass and the Dallas end went in for the score that made it with Only a couple of minutes left to Dallas got the Ball again in Packer territory when Don Chandlers punt slithered out of Bounds near now Meredith could feel the Iron clamps of go to Hayes for a Quick score was again the logical but while the packers obviously figured it that Way Meredith he hit Clarke again for a big first Down deep in Green Bay next followed the pass interference Call on the Green Bay lets follow Meredith step by his first Call a dive the game was it ended Sec Buck by it e Eves which was stopped on the 1yard line by the Tor Pedring p a c k e r anything wrong with that Call you had to take a pop at a team that had just been hit by a crippling its second and Meredith Calls for a but one of offensive linemen jumps the Don throws accurately to a Man in the end zone who cant hold the penalty is stepped five Yards to the Packer 6yard that makes it second and Meredith a swing pass to his bread and butter re Eye the pass is thrown Reeves cant hold was it watchable with a Good and the miss was Mio reflection on its third and Meredith fades and throws to Pettis nor Man and the pass is time arid again in those situations the receiver is Able to scramble not this Hes stopped on the its fourth and what do you Call a dive Buck into the Center the percentages were a fall Back and pass All right but what if every body is theres no room to How about a Roll out with an option to run or pass that what Don he rolled out to the his receivers were in the end linebacker Dave Robinson of Green Bay eluded the Man who was supposed to Block him and roared Down on Robin son got a stranglehold on but Meredith got the Ball it was intercepted by Tom Brown and to All intents and purposes ones after the linebacker Robinson of Green Bay admitted that his heart was in his Throat when Meredith got the Ball it could have been caught by a Dallas player and that could have meant a tie and sudden death did Meredith make a bad Call in that series in in the entire gamete is it a Superb game by a quarterback who had under suspicion before the contest As not
