Eyes of the Nation Watch the Enforcers

-- After a tough inaugural game against
the Orlando Rage, and the practices in Orlando,
the Enforcers finally leave Orlando. This
time they are heading to battle the Los
Enforcers, after losing 33-29 on Feb. 3
to the Orlando Rage, will battle another
winless team. The Xtreme lost their inaugural
game on the road against the San Francisco
Demons, 15-13, by a game-winning field goal.
This game will tell which team is really
the worst team in the XFL. I'm not bashing
either team, but it's a battle of the winless.
Someone will get back to .500 and the other
will be 0-2 looking up at the the other
7 teams in the league.
Enforcers and the Xtreme had great games,
but their defenses weren't strong enough
for either team to get the win. The closeness
in the point difference was key. The Xtreme
kept their game very close, yet they lost
by a field goal in the game's closing seconds.
The Enforcers kept their game going back
and forth, but the leeway went to the Rage.
The power of Jeff Brohm for Orlando and
Mike Pawlawski for San Francisco kept both
defenses to allow combined stats of 45-69
passes completed, 505 yards passing, and
6 passing TDs. If this trend continues for
both teams going through the season, they
will have long years.
the Enforcers and the Xtreme have good offensive
teams. Here are the key matchups for the
Tim Lester vs. Tommy Maddox
RB: John Avery vs. Rashaan Shehee
WR: Roell Preston vs. Jermaine Copeland
really think that this game could be the
showstopper, but because of what I have
been hearing about what might happen between
J.R. and the "Guvnah", it might
take away from a good game. But, from a
football standpoint, I wouldn't be disappointed
with this match. I expect to see a high
scoring game with a few turnovers here and
there. But, the Enforcers kept it very close
with the Rage. They came back from a Jeff
Brohm onslaught to come back, but lose by
4. The Xtreme had control in the game, it's
just that they lost it.
prediction: Enforcers 44, Xtreme 34
