1984 Chicago Blitz

In one of the more bizarre trades of all time, the owners of the Arizona Wranglers and Chicago Blitz actually traded franchises before the '84 season. Thus, the '84 Blitz are the former '83 Wranglers. While the '83 Blitz had advanced all the way to the title game, the '83 Wranglers tied the Federals for the worst record in the league at 4-14. New coach Marv Levy and former Bears QB Vince Evans improved only slightly over that in '84 before Soldier Field crowds 60% smaller than in '83.
