What if The NFL did an XFL style draft?

I really enjoyed the positional drafts of The XFL. I liked the concept and thought it went well. Minus the radio silence for the final phase. I got to thinking after reading Greg Parks and Mike Mitchell’s breakdowns on the Tampa and New York drafts. Which were excellent by the way. What if The NFL r...

Re: The XFL officially releases it's list of eight team assigned Quarterbacks

I'm really loving how much the teams are already getting their QBs out into the community at meet-and-greets, doing radio, TV, etc. Cool to see. It is great. Matt McGloin is calling season ticket holders of The New York Guardians personally. That’s really awesome. Cardale Jones, Jordan Ta’amu and o...

Re: BattleHawks Season Schedule potentially leaked

I seem to remember a volleyball tournament or something taking up the first two weeks at the Dome, so maybe at Tampa opening weekend and one of the Texans in week two. (If they go all division in week one Defenders/Guardians seems natural, and then in week two seems cold to send them to the West Co...

BattleHawks Season Schedule potentially leaked

The Dome at America’s center, home of The St. Louis BattleHawks supposedly leaked the schedule of The BattleHawks on Facebook. Take it with a grain of salt for now but if this is accurate. There are some revealing aspects to it. #1- The BattleHawks would be opening two weeks in a row on the road. So...

Re: Why hasn’t the XFL pursued Johnny Manziel?

Here’s a true fact. Johnny Manziel has been a bad pro football quarterback. He stunk in Cleveland. Struggled in the CFL before bailing. He wouldn’t be my starting quarterback and I personally would have reservations about him even being on my roster even as a backup. "Bad pro football quarterback" ...

Re: XFL Season and TV Schedule release date set for 10/22

We won't find out until January when the MLS schedules come out, but it'll be interesting to see how many one-day turnarounds there are in DC, LA, and Seattle from MLS to XFL (especially this week with Sounders to Hawks finally happening--previously there hasn't been any less than two at CL either ...

Re: XFL Draft Day 2 Live Thread

Hey Martin was actually a Falcon when they played the Hawks in the playoffs Germain's rookie year. Of course I highly expect Germain to be long gone once the Dragons are done with the season, so any reunion will be short-lived if he makes the team. Think LA won the day with the family angle by draf...

Re: Current NFL Practice Squad QB's: Future XFL options

The bad news coming out of Kansas City may affect this list. That’s true. Depending on how long Mahomes is out for. Oliver Luck did a post draft interview on the XFL’s YouTube channel with This is The XFL Show. He mentioned at least three times that the XFL expects to lose players that they drafted...

Re: Why hasn’t the XFL pursued Johnny Manziel?

The same Florio article suggests playing games during the weekdays in the fall. That was already tried by the UFL not too long ago. I was at Giants stadium on a weeknight when the Sentinels had about 38 people in the stands. Asking families to show up 8pm to games on work nights with school the next...
