SAN ANTONIO: Last year all the pieces fell into place for the Talons. Led by quarterback Aaron Garcia and a dynamic offense, San Antonio bulldozed its way to the top seed in the National Conference. Unfortunately for the Talons, their run came to an early end at the hands of Tommy Grady and the Utah Blaze in the first round of the playoffs. The loss ushered in a rebuilding process for the franchise. The Talons were tasked with replacing Garcia ' who left for the San Jose Sabercats in free agency ' and fixing a defense that ranked near the bottom of the League in 2012. The latter was taken care of very quickly, as San Antonio has added 2012 Riddell Defensive Player of the Year Joe Sykes, as well as fellow defensive lineman Tim McGill and defensive back Andre Jones. Former Orlando Predators defensive back Justin Hannah also joined the squad. The newcomers will mesh with a few standouts from last season's team, including linebackers Jamar Ransom and Victor Degrate and defensive backs Fred Shaw and Chris Crocker. Under the guidance of Head Coach and defensive guru Lee Johnson, it's conceivable that this new and improved lineup could make all the difference in 2013. That is if the offense can hold its own as well. Rookie quarterback GJ Kinne will take over for Garcia behind center. Though he comes to the AFL with an impressive college resume, how quickly he can adjust to the Arena game will be paramount to the Talons postseason hopes. Expect an expanded role for fullback Chad 'Tank' Cook, who will look to get back into All-Arena form by taking some of the pressure off Kinne with a strong running game. Still, it is a passing League and Kinne will need to find some targets. Burl Toler and Robert Quiroga return from last year's squad, taking over for the departed Jason Willis and currently unassigned Jomo Wilson as the team's top receivers. San Antonio also returns veteran Derek Lee and added the elusive Dwayne Eley, Jr., who could prove to be the squad's biggest difference maker. If the Talons offense can build quick chemistry and the defense plays up to its potential, San Antonio could very well be looking at its second division titles in as many seasons.
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.
