The Greensboro Revolution, our indoor football team, is 4-1 after Saturday night’s win over the Atlanta Thouroughbreds.
The big question is, “Are the Revs for Real”?Â The Rev won the game 23-21 and had a total of minus four(-4) yards passing.Â I thought indoor football was supposed to be a passer’s paradise.Â You have to be throwing the ball to be a legitimate team, and we mean throwing passes for completions and for big-time yardage.
The Rev can’t decide on a quarterback.Â The original starter Mike Morrison was a fourth-string QBÂ in high school at Dudley.Â The backup, Colin Harris played in college somewhere.Â The big runner is 38 year-old Willie Harris out of GrimsleyÂ High School.Â TheÂ new wide receiver is Clarence Headen who playedÂ ball at Smith HS but neverÂ playedÂ a down of college football.Â Headen is also playing defense and he thinks hisÂ work asÂ aÂ defensive back will allow him to leave here and head straight to the NFL.
TheÂ Rev is a running team.Â Can a running team in the world of pass-first, run-last Indoor Football find a way to reach the top of the mountain?Â Will the Rev continue to Run?Â Will they ever take it toÂ the higher levelÂ of Indoor Football and find success with theÂ Pass?Â
Atlanta came to town with onlyÂ one game under their belt and dressed just 15 players when theyÂ lost toÂ the Rev at the Greensboro Coliseum.Â You’re allowed 21 players and the T’Breds came to GBÂ 6 men short of a full load.
There are many questions to be answeredÂ as the Revs’ season rolls on, but theÂ biggest one of allÂ continues to be, “Is the Rev for Real”?Â Â Â Â Â
