The Legends Football League regular season comes to an explosive end Saturday night as the Chicago Bliss head north to battle the Green Bay Chill. This game, like last week’s Eastern Conference final game will determine who will advance to the LFL Playoffs next week.

Guiding both of these teams on the field are two of the top quarterbacks in the league. Green Bay’s Anne Erler and Chicago’s Heather Furr have earned their status their status as LFL elite talent. Formerly teammates on LFL Canada’s Saskatoon Sirens, they now will line up opposite of each other in what is essentially a playoff game itself.

It was in Saskatoon that the nickname “Furrler” originated, an ode to the incredible presence these All-Fantasy players bring with them to the field.

When it comes to their playing time together in Saskatoon, Furr said it was amazing. She added how much she enjoyed to “play with such a great quarterback instead of always against her.”

“Going into Saturday was a benefit for myself because I know a little more in depth how she plays” Furr mentioned.

Almost forgot to mention, in case you didn’t know, both of these players are safeties as well as signal-callers so they literally do face each other. That fact is not lost on Furr. She will be aware of here Erler is lined up on defense.

“I will be looking for her before every snap” said Furr.

Chicago’s team defense has been a bit more productive than Green Bay’s this season so the Bliss have had the advantage of utilizing a more balanced attack. Erler has not had that luxury and has responded with incredible numbers this year. When it comes to passer efficiency which takes many factors into play Furr said “it is great to see that we are two of the top three.”

They should be used to leading the league in statistics. With Saskatoon, Erler was top in efficiency, TD/INT with 6/0 and on defense with 6 interceptions. Her favorite target on offense, Furr who lead the league in touchdown receptions. Erler captured the LFL Canada MVP Award which probably looks fantastic next to her 2011 LFL Rookie of the Year Award.

When Chicago and Green Bay met last season it was an instant classic. A 28-28 tie with 1:54 left, both teams scored again but it came down to a missed two point conversion and the Chill came away with their first ever franchise win, 36-34 in Chicago. The game MVP? Ann Erler.
