Re: Updated XFL Team Staffs

Team Nine is probably not going to be formed until right before the regular season but that would be a good place to have coaches at the ready if staffs lose assistants to college football and the nfl. Well there's no real reason to form Team 9 before the draft, since you don't know what your playe...

Re: Who do you want to see ABC, Fox and ESPN hire to do XFL games?

I'd like to add Maurice Jones-Drew as an option. He was solid in the AAF, consistently the best commentator, even. He's probably gaining experience so that he can move on to NFL broadcasting, but until then he's pretty good for XFL level football.

Politics aside, I wouldn't want Trump involved simply because of how he ran the USFL into the ground.
That's part of what I meant from a business standpoint. The USFL could easily still be going today if it hadn't had Trump as an owner.

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

I can see the XFL burning through Vince's money a lot faster than what they're projecting. I think the money in the bank now gets him through this season...... but going forward..... he'll need investors. I think Mr. Trump should be needing something to do in a year or so. In the meantime......ther...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

But if our Seattle qb comes down to the result of the Seahawks backup battle .....I want the WINNER. of that battle. Say if it's Lynch......he could either be Russell's backup with the Hawks and make great money while waiting for Russ to get hurt .....OR ......he could play......as a starter .....a...

Re: Updated XFL Team Staffs

Chris Crocker. The former NFL defensive back who was drafted by the Browns back in 2003, and played several years in the NFL, including a long stint with The Cincinnati Bengals, is going to be the special teams coordinator for XFL St. Louis. That’s a big boost for him. Crocker has dabbled with coac...

Re: XFL Summer Showcase Spreadsheet

I have a couple more names for the spreadsheet. Both specialists worked out at Montclair State. Punter Cameron Nizialek and Kicker Younghoe Koo. Both were with The Atlanta Legends last year in the AAF. Koo is in the record books for scoring the first ever points in AAF history. The Legends probably...

Re: XFL St. Louis Summer Showcase Rosters

One thing I'm hoping to see this league do is make stars out of guys who otherwise might not be seen. Not so much on well used NFL veterans and castoffs or AAF leftovers although many of them will be present.....and they are needed somewhat ....because of the football experience they bring to make ...

Re: XFL Summer Showcase Spreadsheet

I would imagine that every major AAF player from the showcases will make the cut and be signed. They have proven themselves to be good in a league with a slightly worse (probably) talent level than the XFL, plus they have recent experience. If this happens, then about 70 of the ~300 spots for showca...

Re: XFL St. Louis Summer Showcase Rosters

As a PA guy, it was good to see Brandon Bell on the list. He was a 3 year starter and one of the better players on a couple of pretty good PSU teams. He spent two seasons in the NFL with the Bengals as a practice squad player and even made the 53 man roster a few times. Good player. Another player ...
