Jacksonville Breeze 1-0
A dominating debut displayed the depth of the roster on this squad. The emergence of key veterans such as Matheny, Purnell, Weis, Ziegler as well as a healthy Steinmetz and a re-focused Renda spells trouble for the East.
Los Angeles Temptation 1-1
LA's vulnerability in the secondary and on the offensive line was on full display against Seattle. Head Coach Eddie Chan's personnel decision of to not play veteran safety Liz Gorman and longtime center Natalie Jahnke led to a disastrous loss to their division rival. With the insertion of Gorman to the line-up and the return of Jahnke to center, this is still the best roster in the league.
Seattle Mist 2-0
A team never given much respect from the league, simply took it as they surprised the LFL world by going into LA and winning. Creel continues to manage the offense well, and after a halftime tirade by head coach Chris Michaelson that drew a national press, the defense stepped up big-time. Can Seattle continue to surprise? That will depend on the play of Creel and the consistency of the defense.
Philadelphia Passion 0-0
The most under-the-radar team during the off-season returns a healthy Marirose Roach who might be the most potent offensive weapon in the league. They are vastly improved at quarterback with Megan Larsen, however having lost stellar defensive end Shanae’ Thomas to Atlanta, the defense could be the Achilles heel of this team.
Chicago Bliss 1-1
After a devastating season-opening loss, this Keith Hac assembled roster returned to play to dominate a Las Vegas team that many thought would be tough. The identity of this team is starting to form as an aggressive defense and blue-collar run game led by the most explosive offensive weapon in the league in ChrisDell Harris.
Las Vegas Sin 0-1
The team heralded as having the best off-season showed signs of a rookie roster and rookie coaching. A lack of physical play and coaching adjustments led to an embarrassing season-opener loss in Chicago. A talented roster can lead to a bounce-back.
Green Bay 1-1
After a competitive yet disappointing loss to Seattle, this roster rebounded in a big way in their home opener vs. Minnesota. The league's No.1 ranked offense finally includes a cast and not just simply Erler. This season will only go as far as the defense will allow.
Atlanta Steam 2-1
Rebounding from an opening night disaster, Brittany Morgan and company have started to create an identity as a run first offense and physical defense.
Cleveland Crush 0-1
New quarterback Tia Knipper, alongside perhaps the best all-around running back in the league Tamar Fennell, will provide this team an opportunity to stay in games. This offense has great speed and quickness on the outside. The challenge for this roster will be an inexperienced and not very physical front line on both sides of the ball. Wide receiver/Safety Theresa Petruziello will need a career season coming off a great rookie year.
Baltimore Charm 0-0
The development of second year quarterback Angela Rypien and how long the coaching staff sticks with her if she struggles will determine the fate of this season. This could be the best rookie class in the league, outside of Atlanta. Perhaps the best offensive line in the LFL should provide Rypien time in the pocket and open holes for a yet-to-be-named starting running back. Right now, their defense is non-existent.
Minnesota Valkyrie 0-1
Arguably one of the most disappointing and perhaps expected season-opening performances. A team that was out-coached and out-played. Sole bright spot was the emergence of potentially a franchise quarterback in Kari Jane. Improvement will be needed quickly to keep pace with Green Bay and Chicago in the Midwest Division.
Omaha Heart 0-1
This first year squad has to become more physical and get into better football shape in order to truly tap into its talent. After a 42-6 loss to fellow expansion franchise the Atlanta Steam, this Omaha roster has serious work ahead of itself.
