Season Outlook: With some of the core players returning to Arizona, there is no reason to doubt that the Rattlers will make the playoffs again. When WR Tysson Poots left to go to the league’s newest franchise – Las Vegas Outlaws, there was a hole that needed to be filled, so Arizona went out and brought back Markee White to the team.

Head coach and GM Kevin Guy brought in a lot of position players to compete and push returning players during Training Camp to ensure that complacency does not set in.

Season Prediction: Arizona will like San Antonio being out of the league and the Outlaws joining the division, there is no reason to not look forward to Arizona winning the Western Division again. The only teams that I see giving Arizona a run for their money, would be San Jose or Spokane.

15-3 is my record prediction, with the Nick Davila led Rattlers being a firm #1 in the National Conference and having home field advantage to eventually win the Arena Bowl.
