Rattlers Repeat as ArenaBowl Champs
Jeff Sims, ArenaFan.com

ORLANDO -- On Saturday, the Arizona Rattlers became the first team since the Tampa Bay Storm in ArenaBowls IX and X to win back to back Arena Football League championships as they defeated the Philadelphia Soul 48-39 in ArenaBowl XXVI in Orlando.

Arizona Rattlers Win 48-39 in ArenaBowl XXVI
Joe Kauffman, ArenaFan.com

The Arizona Rattlers are winners of ArenaBowl XXVI. Lindholm's field goal proved to be the clinching scoring, making it a two-score game. Philadelphia put up a tremendous effort, but it wasn't enough to beat the Rattlers, who have won their fourth ArenaBowl in franchise history and their second straight by the count of 48-39.

Second Verse, Same as the First For Soul in ArenaBowl
Adam Markowitz, ArenaFan.com

ORLANDO -- The Arizona Rattlers have become the first team since the 1995-1996 Tampa Bay Storm to win back-to-back ArenaBowls. Unfortunately for the Philadelphia Soul, they are becoming a mere footnote in history, as they are the first team since – ironically – the Rattlers were beaten in three consecutive ArenaBowls in 2002, 2003, and 2004.

ArenaFan Staff & Experts Weigh in On ArenaBowl XXVI
Adam Markowitz, ArenaFan.com

ORLANDO – There have been 21 weeks of grueling Arena Football League action, and it all boils down to what we have on Saturday afternoon at the Amway Center, as the Arizona Rattlers and the Philadelphia Soul duke it out in ArenaBowl XXVI. Kickoff for today's game in Orlando is set for 1:00 p.m. ET, and it will be broadcast on CBS, marking the first time that the ArenaBowl has been played on network TV since being on NBC in 2006.

O-Line Key To Success of the Soul
Adam Markowitz, ArenaFan.com

The great Casey Stengel used to say that "You have to have a catcher, or you'll have all passed balls." Here in the Arena Football League, you have to have a center, or you'll have all delay of game penalties. You'd better have three great offensive linemen and a great fullback too, or you'll have a lot of quarterbacks on IR by the end of the season.

The Philadelphia Soul have had the best offensive line in the league bar none over the course of the last two seasons, and if they are going to win ArenaBowl XXVI on Saturday afternoon, this unit is going to have to play at its best.

This Time, Philadelphia Has the Eye of the Tiger in the ArenaBowl
Adam Markowitz, ArenaFan.com

It's clear that part of the reason that Tiger Jones plays here in the Arena Football League is the thrill of the fight, and if the Philadelphia Soul are going to beat the Arizona Rattlers on Saturday in ArenaBowl XXVI, they are definitely going to have to rise up to the challenge of their rivals. Rocky Balboa might have had the eye of the tiger in all of the Rocky films, but right now in the City of Brotherly Love, the tiger that will be in the midst of the fight on Saturday happens to be one of the best receivers in the history of the Arena Football League.

Raudabaugh Out To Prove That He Is Amongst AFL's Elite
Adam Markowitz, ArenaFan.com

With a win on Saturday over the Arizona Rattlers, Dan Raudabaugh will certainly be able to put himself in a class with Nick Davila, Aaron Garcia, and the rest of the greats in this game, but a loss, and he'll probably go back to just being another one of those quarterbacks who puts up great numbers.
