The Blitz remain undefeated at 3-0 after their latest victory over the Cleveland Saints. RB Bryant "Speedy" Pascascio stayed hot with his two scores, QB Tommy Kudyba tossed for two touchdowns and ran for 1 more, WRs David Brown and Shawn McKeown each caught a touchdown, DE Ryan O'Neil recovered a blocked kick for a TD, and Kicker Julie Harshbarger drilled all six extra points. With the action over, let's take a look at what to watch for in upcoming games.
The offensive flow: The Blitz have been a very efficient team in their first three contests. Kudyba has been connecting with his group of talented WRs, Pascascio has been pounding the ball into the end zone, and there have been very few turnovers (not to mention the tremendous blocking by the offensive line). It is key for the Blitz to continue this trend as turnovers can often lead to scores in the arena game.
DBs Calvin Grant and Chris Muhammad: These two have really put on a show with their five combined interceptions, handful of deflections, blocked field goals, and lockdown coverage. Opponents QBs have barely had a chance with these two lockdown DBs on the field. If they (and the rest of the DBs) keep playing like this, then the Blitz should have no problem winning.
The pass rush: Not only have the DBs shut down the passing game, but the pass rush has prevented many plays from ever happening with their boatload of sacks, fumble recoveries, and tackles. The combination of the coverage and pass rush creates a very balanced and dangerous defense for the Blitz that should help them bring other wins.
