Soul Look To Get Back On Track In Chicago
By Matt Leon
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After two straight losses at home, the Philadelphia Soul will look for a better result on the road on Saturday night as they visit the Chicago Rush.
Philadelphia has dropped decisions to Cleveland and Jacksonville the last two weeks.
“We’re shooting ourselves in the foot with penalties, not making plays,” Soul head coach Clint Dolezel tells KYW Newsradio. “And the other team is making some plays, too. So we’ve got to switch it around, we’ve got to make the plays, we’ve got to take care of the football and start getting some turnovers as well.”
Chicago has been surging in the other direction as of late. They will bring a 4-2 record into this match-up.
“They don’t beat themselves,” Dolezel says. “Right now they are the exact opposite of us. We’re beating ourselves and they don’t beat themselves, so something’s got to give here this weekend if we’re going to get a win. They won their last four games they’ve played, they lost their first two, so they’re on a little bit of a hot streak, got a little confidence.”
When it comes to personnel, Dolezel says they know one key Rush player they can’t let have a big day.
“We’ve got to stop Reggie Gray, he’s a very talented receiver,” Dolezel says. “He’s probably one of the top three receivers in the league, so we’ve got to slow him up.”
Gray has already caught 52 passes in six games, 18 of those catches have gone for scores.
Philadelphia and Chicago will kick-off at 9:00pm on Saturday night.
