AFL playoffs: Blaze get knocked out
Salt Lake Tribune
While putting together their unlikely late-season run to make the Arena Football League playoffs and earn the right to host a wild card game, the Utah Blaze got more than their share of fortuitous breaks and game-swinging calls, winning six of their last seven games after a forgettable 0-9 start.

Blaze: Second-half errors doom Utah

Blaze: Utah all fired up
Salt Lake Tribune
OK, it wasn't the 17-point win that the Utah Blaze needed to even the score with the Los Angeles Avengers, but it sure felt satisfying nonetheless for a team that opened the season with nine losses and a crowd that two months ago was booing these guys off the EnergySolutions Arena field.

Rampage's mistakes pile up in loss to Blaze

Blaze: Playoffs? Coach of 0-6 Utah says maybe
Salt Lake Tribune
If there is a silver lining to the Utah Blaze's 0-6 start - and that's a big if for a team yet to win a game in 2008 - it is that most of the other teams in the Arena Football League's American Conference are off to bad starts, too.

Arena Football League: Winless Blaze keep sliding
Salt Lake Tribune

On a night when the Utah Blaze honored the player with perhaps the biggest heart, drive and desire in franchise history - deceased former receiver Justin Skaggs - and announced that they are retiring his No. 3 jersey, they played like they had no heart themselves, their veteran Arena Football League coach said.

Team to remember Skaggs
Salt Lake Tribune
It has been a little more than nine months since the Utah's Blaze's Justin Skaggs died due to a cancerous brain tumor, but the Arena Football League franchise does not want to wait for the one-year mark to honor the popular receiver and linebacker.

Salt Lake Tribune
One of the major questions surrounding the Utah Blaze this season was how the team would replace receiver Siaha Burley, the 2007 Arena Football League Offensive Player of the Year who bolted for Arizona in the offseason.

Utility man not short on versatility
Salt Lake Tribune
The Utah Blaze could field a pretty formidable basketball team with the receivers they invited to training camp this year, guys such as 6-foot-6 Anthony Brown of Arkansas, 6-6 David Sutton of UTEP and 6-5 Huey Whittaker of South Florida.

What's this? Blaze may actually try to run the ball, too
Deseret News
Arena football is a pass-happy game. Running the football just isn't usually an effective way of moving the football down the field in the AFL. The running back is really more of a fourth lineman protecting the quarterback than he is a ball-carrier.

Burley leaves big shoes to fill
