Week 2 of the Indoor Football League is in the books. Here are three things to take away from the week that was.
Indoor Football League Week Two Takeaways
1. Rattlers Are Not Ready
The Arizona Rattlers moved to the Indoor Football League late in 2016. They were formerly part of the Arena Football League. When the Rattlers came to the new league, many thought they could compete with the Sioux Falls Storm and the other big dogs.
That’s not what has happened these first two games.
The Rattlers have not been playing the same type of dominant football that they played in the AFL. They haven’t played terrible, but they also haven’t played good enough.
They’re off to an 0-2 start in the IFL. They need to figure it out or it will be a long season for them.
2. McCullum Made for MVP (Again)
Wichita Falls Nighthawks quarterback Charles McCullum is off to a hot start, as is his team. He himself is on top of the league in passing two games in.
McCullum has averaged 245 yards per game. That is 17 more than the second guy in the league. He also has thrown 13 touchdowns in just two games. That’s two more than the next best.
If he continues to play the way he has been playing, he could see himself winning a second consecutive IFL MVP.
3. Ladies and Gentlemen, The FANchise Feud
The Salt Lake Screaming Eagles and Colorado Crush faced off in a battle of the two teams that are run by Project FANchise. Under Project FANchise, the fans of both teams call the team’s offensive plays.
The game went into overtime with Salt Lake winning after converting a two-point conversion instead of going for the game-tying extra point. If there are more games like these against these two teams, we may be in for a new rivalry in the IFL.
