Week 5 Takeaways

Birmingham’s 31-14 Loss to Orlando

The Iron have lost consecutive games after winning three straight to start the season. Things are still looking up after Keith Price took over for Luis Perez in Week 5 and completed 18-of-29 (62.1%) passes for 234 yards (8.1 yards per attempt) and a touchdown.

Here’s what head coach Tim Lewis said after the game: “We’ll continue to work the way we’ve been working, but with an added emphasis on ‘he who moves it gets to stay in’ … I’m all about that. I’m all about when you have your opportunity, if it moves, you get to stay at the helm, and I’m OK with that.”

We have roughly five games of evidence that Perez is incapable of consistently moving the Birmingham offense, so an expected switch to Price is certainly welcomed.
