Arena football is a fairly easy game to get into--once you get a feel for the rules, that is. If all you've ever played is garden-variety football, there are some key differences. For one, this is an eight-on-eight game, and most of those players play on both sides of the ball. Many of the positions are the same as in the NFL, with quarterbacks, wide receivers, linebackers, and so forth, but there are some key differences in how each position plays. Linebackers, for instance, are forced to stay within a designated defensive box, with its borders being the two outmost offensive blockers. Only one LB can blitz, and it has to come from within the box. Neither LB can drop back into pass coverage, and they can only go outside the box once the ball has been tossed, the quarterback has scrambled outside the box, or the running back takes off with the ball. That's probably the most complicated example of the differences in the rules between positions in the two leagues of football, but it's indicative of the differing philosophies between the two sports. Arena football, not unlike a game of Blitz, is very much about lots of touchdowns. That's not to say that there's no defense at all, because there certainly is. But with such a short field, less traffic on the field, and a "pass first, ask questions later" mentality, arena football is definitely an offensive game.
