A rapid retreat from playoffs
Chicago Sun-Times
The Rush had allowed a league-low 47.8 points per game going into its playoff game Sunday at Allstate Arena. It took the Grand Rapids Rampage three games against the Rush to finally figure out how to break through that defense.

Using one of its best offensive performances of the year, the Chicago Rush clinched homefield advantage throughout the Arena League playoffs with a 75-63 win over the Dallas Desperados at the Allstate Arena on Sunday.

Rush Finally Clinch Top Seed
The National Sports Review
Despite injuries, questionable focus and even problems finding a kicker, the Chicago Rush clinched the one seed in the American Conference for the first time in their eightyear history after defeating the Dallas Desperados 75-63.

Rush Continue To Struggle
The National Sports Review

Rush Clinch Division
The National Sports Review
The Chicago Rush accomplished a great deal in their 72-28 victory over the Los Angeles Avengers. They clinched the Central Division with five weeks to go, clinched a bye and home playoff game, set three team records, broke out new uniforms which they should consider never taking off and proved that the best team in the Arena Football League may be in the American Conference.

Rush come from behind to beat Grand Rapids
Chicago Tribune
The Rush may have had more artful performances this season, but no one's about to complain after Sunday's 55-52 Arena Football League victory over Grand Rapids left it with six wins at the season's halfway mark. That equals the franchise's second-best start.

An All Around Black Eye
The National Sports Review
The best thing that can be said about the Chicago Rush and Kansas City Brigade game as far as Rush fans are concerned is that the Rush won. Much like the mafia, don’t ask how it was done. Just know the final score was 49-42 Rush and quickly move on.

Last year, the Rush defense set a franchise record by forcing 44 turnovers. After the way the defense performed Monday in the season opener against the San Jose SaberCats, that mark might be in serious jeopardy.
