SABERCATS: With the exception of a hiccup against the Los Angeles KISS two weeks ago, the Sabercats have plowed through the season. They own the league's best record and are in the driver's seat for homefield advantage in the playoffs.. San Jose has outscored Spokane 118-54 in their previous two meetings. Former Shock QB Meyer threw for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns in San Jose's win last week at Las Vegas. The Sabercats ran for six of their nine scores, including three from Armstrong, who is tied for second for most rushing touchdowns on the season with 15. Gray is the workhorse at receiver and is third in receptions and touchdowns. He is also fourth in receiving yards Fontenette is second in the AFL with 11 picks. Maka is tied for second in sacks.
SHOCK: Spokane is looking to make a playoff push and they are in good position to do so. Their win last week over the Thunder put them in the driver's seat to make a return to the playoffs. A win in their own arena over the Sabercats could go a long way to building some confidence. The Shock have averaged 64 points in their four wins this season. Coffman returned to the starting lineup against Portland and did not disappoint. He threw for 328 yards and a season-high 9 touchdowns in the win, which earned him Russell Athletic AFL Offensive Player of the Week. Truesdell caught 7 passes for 124 yards and 5 touchdowns, while Sambrano added 8 grabs for 125 yards and 2 scores. Ruffin's 8.5 sacks are tied for third in the AFL. McMillan picked off 2 passes in the win against the Thunder.

"As you can see, he’s the biggest, fastest guy out there. I love having him on my team. It made it easy for me,"
Shock head coach Andy Olson on beating the Thunder
“It’s about time we finished one off. We still let them back in more than we should have. But our defense made the plays, finally, when we needed them.”
This week we take a trip to the past as David acquaints us with the Shock in their inaugural season, 2006, when they won the af2's ArenaCup with the help of a couple wide receivers pictured below.
