AFL Conference Championship Preview
Today it's Arena Bowl or Bust for four Arena Football teams. The conference championship games kickoff at 1 PM ET with the Cleveland Gladiators looking to upset the Philadelphia Soul, and then at 3:30 PM ET with the Grand Rapids clashing with the San Jose Sabercats.
The defending champion Sabercats will be upset, it's as simple as that. The 6-10 Grand Rapids Rampage, led by QB James MacPherson, are on a scoring Rampage. Grand Rapids will be going to their first Arena Bowl since they won it all in '01. Who says a team with a losing record can't win the Conference Championship?! Grand Rapids 52, San Jose 48
Matt D'Orazio leads a powerful Soul offense, and I really think he's taking this team all the way. The 9-7 Cleveland Gladiators barely survived in their two playoff victories. I just don't think Raymond Philyaw has what it takes to lead the Glads over this Soul offense. That's all I have to say about this one, Soul wins 58-44.
Enjoy the games!
