Scouting the Beef: Omaha’s mix of offense and defense has left it as the only unbeaten team in the Champions Professional Indoor Football League through five weeks. The Beef (3-0) have the top scoring defense in the league, giving up less than 27 points per game, and are second in the league in total offense. They needed a little from both sides of the ball to pull out a victory last week. Their defense surrendered 140 total yards in limiting Sioux City to nine points in the second half and the two overtimes. The Beef’s offense did just enough to come away with the 32-26 victory, getting three touchdown hook-ups from quarterback James McNear to receiver Judd Harrold, including a 25-yard connection for the game-winner in the second overtime. That was part of a 100-yard day for Harrold, and McNear finished with five scoring strikes. McNear is the CPIFL leader in total offense and is the only player in the league averaging more than 200 yards per game.
