O. (AP) After keeping a tight rein on celebrated running back Archie Griffin during his rookie year in the National Football League, the Cincinnati Bengals are ready to turn the twotime Heisman Trophy winner loose in a bid for 1,000 yards rushing. "Maybe we made a mistake during the first part of the season," said Bengals Coach Bill Johnson. "Had he played the entire season, I'm sure he would gained 1,000 yards. I think that highly of him." Griffin, 'the former record-breaking Ohio State University football star, gained 625 yards as a parttime performer last season.

He led the club with yards per carry average. Johnson, who directed the Bengals to a 10-4 record succeeding the legendary Paul Brown, feels the year of seasoning -could put Griffin, among the NFL's top breakaway A After being platooned with veteran Lenvil Elliott, Griffin' broke loose in the late stages; of- -the season. He bolted 77 yards on the first play of the game against Kansas City in the team's 11th outing on the way to his first 100-yard performance in the F. pros. The 77-yard touchdown run was the longest of the season in the American Football Conference.

Bengals backfield coach Jack; Donaldson, who has been one of Griffin's biggest since scouting the Ohio State star, said it was a matter of time last year before Get. Griffin erupted. "He had to get the feel. The type of offense was new. da.

Instead of the I-formation, and being used to going forward, he was being taught to move laterally and off -tackle. The blocking schemes were different," Donaldson said. The veteran coach 'is convinced Griffin will prove his critics wrong. "Admittedly, he is not the fastest man in the NFL and 'because of his size-5-foot-7, 175. pounds, he's not going to be an outstanding blocker, but I firmly believe he will be as good a pro as' he was a college player," Donaldson added.

"He will not have. to, carry the burden of the offense here, and by staying. fresh, he will keep his explosiveness." 1 Fullback Boobie Clark and Griffin give the Bengals the: potential of Y. having a backfield combination. The duo ranked 16th and 17th respectively in the American Football Conference with Clark picking 671, the most since 1973 when he won rookie of the year honors after gaining 988 yards on the ground.

Griffin has impressed the Bengals' staff with his discipline. "Everything he does is precise," said Donaldson. "He listens, learns. and does it exactly as you ask him. He's determined to make himself a good player." Twins win in 11th, 2-1 BLOOMINGTON (AP) Larry.

Hisle's 11th-inning single scored Rod Carew with the winning run, giving the Minnesota Twins a 2-1 victory over the Oakland A's Monday behind the brilliant pitching of Dave Goltz. Goltz, 12-6, went all the way and allowed just eight hits, striking out 14 and walking only one. The burly righthander struck out the side in the second inning and fanned at least one A's hitter in every inning but the fourth. Goltz has won 12 of 16 decisions since May.8. Carew and Lyman Bostock started the 11th inning with singles and Glenn Adams was walked intentionally by loser Rick Langford, who allowed the Twins just seven hits.

Dieken has been back home in Streator, Ill. while he made his decision about new Greg Pruitt had a different idea. "He probably was told that we weren't having grass drills," suggested the halfback, who shares offensive co-captain duties with the offensive tackle.

"Stonewall" is the tag of linebacker Robert Jackson and the defense has picked it up. Every time he made a tackle in the Monday work here at Kent State, there were shouts for "Stoney" and "Stonewall." The vets seem to have taken to the hardhitting first draft pick. There are some other nicknames. Robert Sims, the big defensive tackle out of action with a bruised calf, wants to be called "Mickey." And safety Bill Armstrong of Wake Forest is "The Buzzard." Halfback Eddie Payton is "Sweet Pea" and receiver Kelvin O'Brien is "Refrig" for obvious reasons. One of the newcomers listed "Ding-a-ling" as his college tag, but he isn't likely to be around long enough for that to become a household word with Browns' followers.
