Scouting Report: Chicago Bliss

Head Coach Keith Hac brings a blue-collar style of roster to the Chicago Bliss. Their return to the Sears Center Arena beckons back to the old winning ways of this LFL franchise. What was lacking in 2012 was size and playmaking ability. Hac’s return has brought a new sense of confidence and excitement to the windy city.

Offense: The offensive scheme for the Bliss starts and ends with one of the best playmakers in the league, option quarterback Heather Furr. If she can develop her arm to become stronger and more accurate, Furr could become the most feared passer in the league because of the help she’ll be getting out of the backfield from Chrisdell Harris. A great combination of speed and power, Harris averaged 8.3 YPC in 2012. Count on this offense to run in order to set up the pass, as it lacks any real talent on the outside at wide receiver. Another strength for Chicago is the size of its front line, which will be the key to success in this option style offense. The Bliss are undefeated all time in the Sears Center Arena and boast some of the most loyal fans in the league.

Defense: Two-way starter Heather Furr proved in Canada that she can be a premier safety in the LFL. One of the best pure pass rushers returns to Chicago’s defensive line in Yahshi Rice, sister to All-Pro NFL Defensive End Simeon Rice. The Bliss allowed the 3rd most points in the league last year, so the scarcity of impact players on defense means a collective effort will have to be made in order better manage games this season.
