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.
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.
