The Philadelphia Soul are no longer perfect.
On the other, the still hold the distinction of being the Arena Football League’s top team with a 9-1 record. Dallas, at 8-1, is the only other squad heading into Week 11 with one defeat that came against Philadelphia. Philadelphia/Dallas, why does that sound familiar?
The nine straight wins by the Soul are a franchise record, while the 9-1 record marks is their best ever start. The 640 points are tops in the league. It also helps having someone nicknamed “Money” to catch touchdowns every week. When talking Arena Football history, Chris “Money” Jackson is one of the best all-time. He is one of three players with 300 career touchdowns and one of five with 900 career receptions. We can’t forget the 12,000-plus receiving yards.
What the Soul need to forget is their 67-55 loss to the Cleveland Gladiators in Week 10. They need to get right back on the winning track May 12 when they face the Georgia Force, 8 p.m. on ESPN2. This is the same Georgia team that knocked Philadelphia out of the 2007 playoffs. Revenge is in the air.
The goal of being ’08 Arena Bowl champs remains on track.
