Former Michigan offensive coordinator (and 2007 head coaching candidate) Mike DeBord is the admiral of the San Diego Fleet’s offense. Let’s check in on how that’s going...

That’s not a first quarter update, folks. That’s three points for an entire game. In the 8-3 loss to the Salt Lake Stallions Saturday night, DeBord’s offense mustered just 12 first downs, 54 yards rushing and gave away three turnovers.

The offense ranks in the middle of the AAF in passing yards per game, and third from bottom in rushing. All Tennessee, Indiana and Central Michigan fans can attest, the short story here is:

It’s a Mike DeBord offense.

Oh, look. De’Veon Smith scored another touchdown for the Orlando Apollos. He totaled just 27 yards on 10 carries in a 34-31 victory over the Memphis Express.

He is sixth in the league with 345 rushing yards (4.5 a carry) and second with six touchdowns (only trailing former Alabama back Trent Richardson’s 11 for the Birmingham Iron).

Speaking of Birmingham, Ty Isaac remained on the inactive list for the Iron’s 17-9 win over the Atlanta Legends. Denard Robinson toted the ball once for a yard for Atlanta.

Lastly, Matt Godin returned to the field for the San Antonio Commanders, making two stops in a 23-6 loss to the Arizona Hotshots.
