6-23 This Weekend in INSPF

The first full week is on the books and the headline read shutouts. No less 7 of 11 teams allowed no more than one scoring drive. 4 defenses shutout their opponents last week: Crusaders, Revolution, Spartans and Wolfpack. Preparation and success go hand and hand in the first few games of the season and defense is always a step ahead opening weekend. There was a lot of shuffeling of the rankings this last post, some teams dropping as much as 12 spots, some teams jumping more than 10 up. But you look at the W-L column and things are just about right. Onto this weekend.


IFL
Destroyers @ Eagles:
The most intriguing game in the Interstate Schedule this week. Two new team, two Indy teams, both struggling more than they thought. Its Old School vs New School. The winner of this year, yes there has to be one, will survive the season. I am afraid the one team that loses, will probably not.

Thunderhaws @ Wildcats:
The Thunderhawks impressed a lot of people with a quality win this past weekend. They made a name for themselves. They can make a statement if they can keep it close with the Wildcats. Yes I said keep it close because the cat’s are the heavy favorite at home.

Wolfpack @ Xtreme:
The high powered offense of the ‘pack must make the long trip to the river where the Xtreme will surly turn up the heat with their up and coming Defense. How this game fairs is solely dependent on the Wolfpack’s ability to travel.

Cutters @ Blaze: The Blaze look to make a comeback this week as two former IFL champions faceoff. Another long distance travel has the ability to make this one harder to predict – the trip alone give a 6 pts advantage to the Blaze – which is twice as many points the Cutters won by last weekend.

CRFL
Game of the Week
Spartans @ Crusaders:
Top two teams faceoff in what is quickly becoming a league of the have and have not’s. The Spartans easily handled the Phoenix while the Crusaders smacked down the Force. Two teams with blowout wins last week will end up in few scoring opportunities. Advantage Spartans with a Veteran kicker.

Phoenix @ Blitz:
Could it be true? Could the winless blitz of last year go 2-0 to start the season? Very likely.

Panthers @ Force:
The Force were embarrassed with their performance last weekend vs the Crusaders. Look for the Panthers to be the recipients of a confidence boosting beatdown.

Bengals @ Cardinals:
The Bengals small numbers will not be enough for the hard hitting Cardinals.

Crush @ Raiders: The Raiders had show some promise in the offseason, but underperformed last weekend. Look for that streak to continue as the Crush do their job. It will be a long day for #1

Revolution @ Vipers: The Revolution are the real deal and looking for nothing but a ring at the end of the season, just don’t sleep on the snakes. With the Vipers hosting, you never know quite what to expect.

GMFL
Gateway Hawks @ Enforcers:
The (1-2) Enforcers host this weekend’s game and are looking to get back to .500. The (1-2) Hawks are coming off a win vs the winless saints and will find it hard to stop Everhart who is not only in the top 5 of receiving yards in the GMFL, but the top 5 in tackling as well.

GDFL
Tornados @ Outlaws:
The Tornados get their first true test of the regular season this week facing the 3-0 outlaws. Both teams have faced rather weak, near scoreless opponents on the year. A 5 hour trip for the Tornados could have the teams traveling light which will not be their favor.

I do not remember the Blaze ever winning an IFL championship. Did they win it under a different name? The Blaze lost to the Generals 51-14 in 2010. Did they make it some other time I can't think of?

Just curious.

Re: 6-23 This Weekend in INSPF

You are correct - The Blaze didn't win the IFL championship in 2009, they just made it to the championship game -

Bump.

Good stuff just one correction; we do not have any team named Saints. It should be Spirit [St. Louis Spirit].
