The Dallas Cowboys—and tradition—will prove that they can win again in '75.
Oakland is going all the way this year. Green Bay is the sleeper.

A giant embarrassment is in store for you when the season ends and the Giants are not in the NFC East cellar.
I have just one thing to say about Roy Blount's article on Mean Joe Greene (He Does What He Wants Out There, Sept. 22) and that is I almost liked it.
The next time you want to put a picture of the best defensive tackle on your cover, I'll send you one of Alan Page.

I wish to correct Roger Vaughan's statement on page 18 of your Sept. 22 issue (An Indy on a Fast, Wet Track). He says, "Pied Piper...thus became the second U.S. boat ever to win the [One Ton Cup] championship, the Dick Carter-designed Tina having taken it in 1966."
The first U.S. boat to win the One Ton Cup was Llanoria, in Sweden in 1952. Eric Ridder was the helmsman, and I was one of the crew. We had just come from winning a gold medal in the Olympics at Helsinki. We brought the cup back to the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club in Oyster Bay.

?Tina was the first U.S. One Tonner—i.e., U.S. boat built to modern One Ton rules—to win the cup. When Llanoria won it in 1952 and again in 1957 the cup belonged to the Six Meter class, the original One Ton class having been abandoned early in the century.—ED.
What an excellent article on the World Open golf championship by Sarah Pileggi (Then Out of the Pack Came Jack, Sept. 22). I started following Jack Nicklaus early in his career and have continually rejoiced in his victories.

There has never been an athlete who has dominated his sport the way Jack Nicklaus has. You will have arguments as to whether Babe Ruth was the greatest baseball player of all time, but who can claim that Jack is not the greatest golfer who ever lived?
