Enforcers Last Chance Before Coming Home

-- This Sunday, the Enforcers play their last game of a 3-game
road trip, against the 1-1 Birmingham Bolts. The Enforcers,
who are 0-2 coming into Sunday's game, have lost those 2 games
by 7 points or less. The Enforcers have a great offense, but
last week in L.A., they lost two offensive tackles for the season.
The biggest casualty that will affect the Enforcers in the long
term is the loss of Octavious Bishop. Bishop was supposed to
be the heart of the offensive line for the Enforcers.
the Enforcers head into Birmingham, the Enforcers D will have
to help a lot this week. If the defense can hold down and stuff
Casey Weldon, James Bostic, and Stepfret Williams, then the
Enforcers will have an easy time in B-Ham. Casey Weldon was
pounded by the Hitmen defense in week 2, but the Hitmen couldn't
stop the other two men, Bostic and Williams. That was why the
Hitmen lost, not because of their poor offense, but because
of a lack of defensive pressure on the backs and receivers.
This week, Stepfret Williams and the rest of the ThunderBolt
receivers will have to go through some great cornerbacks in
Corey Ivy, Troy Saunders, and Ray Austin. And not to mention
the roughness of linebacker Jaime Baisley.
Enforcer offense is one of the best in the league. Tim Lester
had outstanding games at Orlando and L.A respectively. John
Avery has 400+ all-purpose yards, with 250 of them coming in
week 1 at Orlando. The Enforcer receiving crew deserves a great
mention. Roell Preston and Aaron Bailey are some of the best
WRs in the Eastern Division. Hopefully, Lester and the rest
of the Enforcer offense will produce against a powerful, yet
mediocre Bolt defense charged by the likes of Duane Butler.
This game, as mentioned before, is the last road game until
the Enforcers home opener against the NY/NJ Hitmen. If they
want to be considered as a good Chicago football team, they
MUST win on Sunday. I repeat MUST. It won't be good if a team
goes home winless at 0-3, to play their first home game and
only see a handful of diehard Enforcer fans at the game. If
Connie Kowal and the rest of the Enforcers want to have a big
turnout at Soldier Field on February 24, the Enforcers MUST
WIN! And one last encouraging comment, GO ENFORCERS!
