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.
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.
