NEW ORLEANS - After a 1-5 start, the New Orleans VooDoo will change starting quarterbacks when they travel to face the Chicago Rush on Saturday night.
Arena Football veteran Chris Wallace will get the nod over Danny Wimprine against the Rush. Both quarterbacks were informed of the move Tuesday.
Wallace, a 10-year veteran, was signed a week ago by the VooDoo. He played for the Arena league Orlando Predators from 2001-2003 and spent the rest of his arena years in AF2.
The 6'1, 200-pound Wallace played college football at Toledo. He did not play Arena Football a year ago. He led the Florida Firecats to the Arena Cup championship in 2004.
Wimprine, a former John Curtis Christian star, is coming off of his most productive game, a six touchdown, no interception performance in a 56-49 loss to Pittsburgh at New Orleans a week ago but he lost a pair of fumbles in the contest.
On the season, Wimprine has 22 touchdown passes but nine interceptions and has lost several fumbles. As a team, the VooDoo have committed 19 turnovers in six games.
Clearly, head coach Derek Stingley is hoping to catch lightning in a bottle with the switch to Wallace.
The VooDoo play the Rush Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Allstate Arena in a game that you can listen to on Rush Radio 99.5, WRNO.
