PITTSBURGH: Pittsburgh's power stems from its secondary. Coming off a season in which the Power led the Arena Football League in both total defense and pass defense, the team only bolstered its defensive backfield during the offseason, bringing in All-Arena Jack linebacker Alvin Ray Jackson and veteran defensive back Sergio Gilliam to mesh with the franchise's career interceptions leader, Chris LeFlore. Jackson immediately gives Pittsburgh an edge at the Jack position, after snagging 14 interceptions ' more than any Jack in the history of the League ' with the New Orleans VooDoo last season. Meanwhile, Gilliam led the Kansas City Command with six interceptions and LeFlore led the Power with nine interceptions last season. With Gilliam and LeFlore in place, the Power should be more adequately prepared for the potential loss of leading tackler Bryan Williams. On the defensive line, Dominie Pittman was intriguing as a rookie last season. The team will need a big year from him, especially if fellow lineman Anthony Degrate does not return to the squad. The defense will need to be sound if the Power are to earn their first playoff berth in franchise history. On offense, Pittsburgh boasts a number of interesting, yet unproven, options. Pittsburgh's Achilles' heel the last two seasons has been the quarterback position. Coach Derek Stingley hopes to change that this year with the addition of former LSU signal-caller Jordan Jefferson. Though a tremendous talent, Jefferson is still an unproven commodity who will have to beat out fellow rookie Shane Austin and third-year journeyman Steven Sheffield for the job. There will also be an interesting battle at fullback, with last season's starter, Tyre Young, competing for carries with Kirby Griffin ' who took last year off after helping the Jacksonville Sharks to an ArenaBowl championship in 2011 ' and Jason Ford ' who ranks second in Illinois history with 26 career touchdowns. Question marks still remain at the receiver position, however. The franchise's career receiving leader, Mike Washington, returns for a third season as the squad's clear number one target, but the next three receivers on the team's 2012 depth chart all remain free agents. The biggest name on the list is undoubtedly former Ironman of the Year, PJ Berry, who has starred as a receiver and kick return specialist over the last three seasons. The team is also currently without the big play abilities of Oderick Turner and Randy Hymes, who are both unassigned to this point. On the team's current depth chart, the recently acquired Shamar Graves comes in as the second-most experienced wideout on the roster after hauling in 29 passes with the Jacksonville Sharks last season. Though the team is certainly not devoid of talent at the position, bringing in another veteran receiver ' whether a new face or one from last year's squad ' may likely be on the immediate agenda. In the kicking game, Pittsburgh hopes that new acquisition Josh Smith can help the team move up from a dreadful 70 percent conversion rate on extra-point attempts last season. Coach Stingley insists this will be a very interesting training camp for Pittsburgh and with plenty of talented, yet unproven options, Power fans will want to stay tuned during the month of March.
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.
