AAF Power Rankings After Week One
8.Memphis Express (0-1)
Memphis put up a goose egg behind Hackenberg and were the worst team of the week. Gates seemed to be the only player trying for the entire game.
7.Atlanta Legends (0-1)
Struggling on offense, with three interceptions between two qbs and an average of 3 yards per carry made for an underwhelming display. They allowed 40 points against, too. A lot of work needs to be done.
6.San Diego Fleet (0-1)
A refusal to bench Bercovici until late ensured that the Fleet had no chance against San Antonio. It didn't help that the O-line was weak, either. Some tuning is needed, but don't could San Diego out yet.
5.Salt Lake Stallions (0-1)
Of the teams that lost, Salt Lake looked the best. They had trouble finding their footing, for sure, but there were some good signs here.
4.San Antonio Commanders (1-0)
Decent offense, better defense. The Commanders might not blow you away, but they seem credible enough to have a chance in any game. If they can just figure out how to finish drives, they could be a force.
3.Birmingham Iron (1-0)
Trent Richardson is back! Add in a good showing from Patton and a solid defensive performance, too. The Iron were easily one of the best teams of week one.
2.Arizona Hotshots (1-0)
The Hotshots put up 416 yards, and Wolford had four touchdowns, in their 38-22 win. Expect them to be threats.
1.Orlando Apollos (1-0)
After putting up a league high 40 points on the Legends, while also holding their opponents to 6, Orlando honestly looked like the best team in the league. Garrett Gilbert and Terence Garvin look promising, book ending the team on both sides of the ball with talent.
