Power Rankings: Week 5
Another week, another win for the Apollos. Can anyone stop Steve Spurrier’s squad? It certainly doesn’t seem that way. While the Apollos haven’t moved at all, there was some movement in this week’s rankings including a new #8. Let’s see who it is!
#1: Orlando Apollos (5-0)
Last Week: #1
League’s best defense? No problem
#2: San Antonio Commanders (3-2)
Last Week: #3
Logan Woodside finally put together a decent game. I still don’t fully believe in him, but he’s showing why Mike Riley ended his two-quarterback experiment. The San Antonio defense may actually be the best in the league overall now, and that’s worthy of jumping the Iron.
#3: Birmingham Iron (3-2)
Last Week: #2
Benching your QB in the first quarter isn’t a good sign, but when the new guy plays well you don’t drop as much as you’d expect. Birmingham found ways to stay within striking distance of the Apollos, but it was clear they were out-classed. Trent Richardson couldn’t get going and that vaunted defense got absolutely trucked by the Apollos two-headed monster at running back. Can they right the ship against our #4 team next week?
#4: San Diego Fleet (3-2)
Last Week: #5
Good teams find ways to win, and that’s what the Fleet
#5: Arizona Hotshots (2-3)
Last Week: #4
What has happened in Arizona? They are falling fast. John Wolford has come down to Earth and started throwing interceptions left and right. They’re finding ways to stay in games and stage comebacks, but if they don’t figure out what’s wrong soon they’ll be in a hole they can’t dig out of. This week’s test won’t be so easy as they take on the Apollos.
#6: Atlanta Legends (2-3)
Last Week: #8
Aaron Murray sure looked good this week. The Legends may finally have a quarterback who can win them some games. I think he comes back down to form a bit against a tough Commanders defense, but he’s certainly going to keep them in the game.
#7: Memphis Express (1-4)
Last Week: #7
The Mett Show shows a lot of promise, but the Express
#8: Salt Lake Stallions (1-4)
Last Week: #6
The Stallions aren’t really all that bad, but someone has to be at the bottom. Four losses in five games
