Costing the Enforcers
Bob Williams - Enforcers Team Reporter
- (16 March 2001) -- As
the Enforcers prepare to battle the Demons Sunday night at Soldier
Field, the spotlight is on the defensive secondary.
Enforcer pass defense ranks dead last in the league allowing
218.8 yards per game. This was evidenced in the LA game in which
Tommy Maddox threw for over 400 yards in a come-from-behind
win and this past week's Memphis game in which Jim Druckenmiller
won player of the week honors.
secondary is going to have to hold against the Demons who throw
the ball almost exclusively.
Bad news for that unit includes the fact that mainstays Kerry
Cooks and leading tackler Ray Austin are doubtful for this weekend's
game and nickleback Donald McCall is definitely out with a shoulder
Fisher was claimed from waivers to try to shore up the defensive
one piece of good news for the Enforcers is that Mike Pawlawski
still won't be returning. Pat Barnes made quite a few mistakes
last week and is begining to show his ineptitude compared to
Pawlawski. What this means is that a hard hitting secondary
led by Corey Ivy, Quincy Coleman, Troy Saunders, and Jason Bray
will need to worry less about making the "Lugz Hit of the
Week" and concentrate on covering deep threats like Travis
Moore, Brian Roberson, and Jimmy "The Jet" Cunningham.
