SOUL DEFENSIVE back Rayshaun Kizer, one of the team's leaders, did not mince words when asked about tomorrow's road playoff game against the best team in the league. Kizer does not care that Cleveland went 17-1, that they didn't lose a game at home and that they beat the Soul twice. He even brushed aside his own team's 30-point loss to Pittsburgh a week ago, chalking it up to self-destruction caused by internal pressure. "We know that we're better than them," Kizer said. "It's a good matchup on paper, but we're better than them.

THE SOUL didn't earn a playoff spot on Saturday. Tampa Bay gave theirs away. Philadelphia had its worst performance in 3 months in a 64-34 loss at Pittsburgh, but managed to claim their conference's final postseason bid thanks to Tampa Bay losing at home to Cleveland 3 hours later. Philadelphia (9-9) will play at Cleveland on Saturday (7 p.m., CBS-SN). "I was shocked. I'm still in shock," Soul coach Clint Dolezel said late yesterday afternoon. "The most important game of the season and we didn't show up. " Nine dropped passes was a major reason why the Soul managed just one touchdown in the first half as Pittsburgh (15-3)

The Soul (9-9) were left in playoff limbo after losing to the Power, 64-34, in Pittsburgh Saturday night.

The Soul will travel to the No. 1-seeded Gladiators for a game Saturday at 7:30. "You hate having to back into the playoffs," Soul coach Clint Dolezel said after the Soul lost, "but we will be rooting for Cleveland and get in the right frame of mind to be ready for next week.

A frightening proposition, considering guitarist-singer-lead Queen Josh Homme and company always blast forth with the most dramatically stylized iteration of glam-inspired, stoner riff-rock since David Bowie started Tin Machine. But there was Homme, all 6-foot-4 of him, peering at the starry skies, lush greenery, and sold-out throng at his feet, and he was in awe. "All this in the middle of the city!"

IT WAS EARLY last August, in an otherwise ordinary NFL exhibition game in Cleveland, that Kent Richardson touched football heaven. "Getting into the game, all of those preseason games, that's what every kid dreams of," said Richardson, who was thisclose to making the Browns regular-season roster. "When I finally got out there, I was like, 'Man, I'm really on the stage that I wanted to be for years.' It was wonderful. " Richardson was the best defensive back in Arena Football when he was plucked from the Soul by Cleveland in January, 2013.
