TAMPA BAY: The Tampa Bay Storm have made great strides in the team's rebuilding effort ' a job that will continue to be a work in progress in 2013. Quarterback Stephen Wasil showed promise in his first full season as a starter last year, debuting in grand fashion with a 300-yard passing performance against the Chicago Rush to kick off the 2012 season. He also got the job done on his legs, scoring 19 touchdowns on the ground. While the Storm no doubt appreciate his ability to make plays in the running game, the passing attack will need to improve for Tampa Bay to keep pace in what looks to be a very competitive South Division. Receivers Joe Hills and Michael Lindsey began to build some chemistry with Wasil towards the end of last year, while 2013 acquisitions Greg Ellingson and James Hardy have been brought in to soften the statistical blow of losing the team's two top receivers from a year ago. Defensively, several key players from last season's roster remain unassigned, including Mac linebacker Steve Octavien and defensive backs Deonte Bolden and Lendy Holmes; however, the team did bring back defensive lineman Pernell Phillips, who led the squad with seven sacks in 2012. Joining the team in 2013 is third-year defensive back Rashad Barksdale, who racked up 113.5 tackles in Kansas City last season. He, along with fellow DB acquisitions Bryan Evans and Travis Williams, should help shore up a defensive that ranked last in points allowed in 2012. With very little turnover on the roster, Tampa Bay already has a great deal of familiarity as a team, which may enable the Storm to get off to a quick start in 2013.
UTAH: The Utah Blaze, blessed with one of the most electric attacks in the Arena Football League in 2012, experienced a fair amount of turnover in their receiving corps during the offseason. Tysson Poots, one of the toughest young receivers in the game, bolted to division rival Arizona. Similarly, Alvance Robinson, who posted 1,015 receiving yards in 10 games with the Blaze last season, has been assigned to another ArenaBowl contender in Philadelphia. The Blaze didn't waste time mourning, however, bringing in potent weapons in L.J. Castile, who recorded 1,196 receiving yards for New Orleans last season, and Jared Jenkins, who reeled off 119 receptions for 1,610 yards as a rookie with the Milwaukee Mustangs last year. Castile and Jenkins will join Aaron Lesue ' who more than doubled his touchdown total from 27 in 2011 to 56 last season ' in providing Utah with a three-headed monster at the receiver position. Where it matters most, however, the Blaze have remained stable, with quarterback Tommy Grady coming back after a record-breaking year in Salt Lake City and Ben Stallings, the franchise's all-time leading rusher, returning to Utah for a third year. So long as the Blaze have Tommy 'The Tower' Grady, who accumulated an unbelievable 5,870 passing yards and 142 touchdowns last season, they will be head and shoulders above most defenses in the AFL ' literally and figuratively. On the defensive side of the ball, 'Sack Lake City' took a bit of a hit themselves with the departure of Mike Lewis, who compiled 23 sacks during his two years in Utah. Utah will now rely on Mike Alston to help keep offensive lines from doubling up on Caesar Rayford, who is the franchise record holder with 23.5 career sacks, and Keenan Mace, who flashed All-Arena potential as a rookie nose guard last season. With Mace and Rayford still donning the orange and black, the Blaze should be able to generate an above-average pass rush, which when combined with experienced defensive backs in Al Phillips and Josh Ferguson should lead to poise in their pass defense. Phillips and Ferguson will need to emerge as leaders, however, given that the Blaze have five rookie defensive backs on their roster at the moment, and veteran leader David Hyland remains a free agent. While the spotlight will surely shine on the Blaze as they attempt to wrest West Division supremacy from the Rattlers, attention should also be paid to an emerging rivalry between Utah and Spokane, from which the Blaze took offensive lineman Shannon Tevaga, as well as Alston and Ferguson.
