Spokane entertains Pittsburgh

Spokane takes the field tonight for the first time in 28 games without Erik Meyer as its starting quarterback. Meyer was placed on injured reserve earlier this week and the Shock will rely on Donovan Porterie or Dennis Havrilla or both -- or possibly even another appearance from pinch-QB Rashaad Carter, who replaced Meyer last Sunday.

Here's my game preview. Here's more on the Power.

Pittsburgh has several former Shock players, including WRs Shaun Kauleinamoku (50 catches, 567 yards, 9 TDs) and recently acquired Hank Edwards (3-12-1), DBs Virgil Gray (six interceptions) and Sergio Gilliam (two ints.) and linebacker Arvell Nelson (27.5 tackles, three fumble recoveries, one int.). Nelson backed up Meyer last season and showed promise as an AFL quarterback.
