CHICAGO: Despite a 10-8 record in 2012, the Chicago Rush missed the postseason for the first time in franchise history last year. This year, they will likely be without quarterback Russ Michna for the first time in five years, as the team's all-time leading passer has yet to come across the transactions wire. In his absence, AFL veteran Gino Guidugli will make the southbound trip down I-94 after spending the last two seasons in Milwaukee with the Mustangs. The 'Italian Stallion' got the job done with his legs as much as his arm in 2012, scoring 18 rushing touchdowns and passing for 86 last season. That athletic ability in one player should be a welcome addition to the Rush, who used a combination of Michna's arm and Luke Drone's legs to achieve nearly identical numbers last year. However, Guidugli will need to take care of the football as he tied the AFL single-season record with 25 interceptions in 2012. Should Guidugli struggle, the Rush have also added second-year quarterback Carson Coffman, who started over Collin Klein at Kansas State. The offense should get some firepower from Chicago's touchdown king, 'Big Play' Reggie Gray, who returns for his third year with the team. Gray will figure to once again be the focus of the offense after the team lost 2012 NET10 Rookie of the Year Jared Perry to the Arizona Rattlers earlier this offseason. Though Perry's near record-setting production will be difficult to reproduce, the Rush did make some waves with the addition of longtime San Jose Sabercats receiver and kick returner Rodney Wright. Wright, along with Ironman Marcus Everett and a healthy Troy McBroom ' who missed all of last season recovering from an injury ' should make for a solid receiving corps. On the defensive side of the ball, the addition of defensive lineman Anthony Hoke should provide some much needed quarterback pressure. The loss of Jack linebacker Kelvin Morris to Orlando will no doubt hurt, but the addition of Everett ' a Second Team All-Arena selection in 2012 ' should help ease the pain. Mac linebacker Nekos Brown returns to the squad, as does defensive back Jorrick Calvin, who blossomed into a pleasant surprise as a late season acquisition last year. Calvin will team with Semaj Moody and the newly-acquired Joe Phinisee in the secondary. If free agent and 2011 Defensive Player of the Year Vic Hall does not return, Rush fans can at least take solace in the fact that the defensive backfield is in very capable hands.
CLEVELAND: The 2013 Cleveland Gladiators will certainly look different than the 2012 squad. As it stands now, the team is highlighted by 18 rookies and returns just eight players from last year's roster. On the plus side, three of those eight returners were among the team's top four receivers in 2012. All-Arena wideout Dominick Goodman leads the bunch, as he looks to improve upon a record-setting 2012 season. Joining him once again will be Thyron Lewis and Carlese Franklin. The man throwing them the ball remains a mystery, however. Trusty veteran John Dutton remains unassigned and very well may have taken his final snap in an AFL uniform. If that's the case, the Gladiators will need to rely on either Chris Dieker or Brian Zbydniewski to take over the quarterbacking duties. Both served as backups last season in Iowa and New Orleans, respectively. The team did bring in some help along the offensive line, adding C.J. Cobb and Shannon Breen in free agency. Defensively, the team will rely heavily on new faces, as nearly every starter from the League's first-ranked scoring defense a year ago will need to be replaced. Pass rusher Brian Brikowski figures to lead the rebuilding charge. Brikowski tallied 20 tackles, including six for loss, in five games with the team last season. Former Georgia Force defensive lineman Kris Cooke should also provide some veteran experience, while former Michigan Wolverines and New England Patriots linebacker Pierre Woods possesses the raw talent to become an instant difference maker for the squad. Perhaps no position group was hit harder in free agency than the team's defensive secondary. The team will be without all five of their top defensive backs from 2012, a group that ranked second in the League in passing defense. With that kind of turnover, big things are expected from Maurice Williams and Lenny Wicks in 2013. Arguably the biggest acquisition made by the team this offseason is the addition of defensive back Jamar Love, who started 17 games as a rookie last season with the Milwaukee Mustangs. The team will rely heavily on the former Arkansas Razorback to bring leadership and big plays on the defensive side of the ball. Steve Thonn will go into 2013 with what looks to be almost an entirely new team, but that does not mean the club is without talent. But with a roster of 18 rookies and only two players (Zbydniewski and Franklin) with more than two seasons under their belts, the Gladiators will need to gel and develop quickly in order to stay competitive in a much improved American Conference.
