Re: Vipers DBs getting smoked?

There have been quite a few smoke sessions around the league. It’s not happening much with the Guardians. I am not so sure about Tampa corners hosting smoke sessions. (Insert Callaway joke). Jerry Glanville’s defenses are very aggressive. He has a tendency to leave corners on an island. Tampa has so...

Re: XFL.com 1/14 Updated Rosters

That's alot of players -18 per team. Is that the 'final' cut? As final as something can be in football. The cuts are supposed to bring rosters down to 52 per team. It will still be two weeks and change before the openers. So there could be additional roster moves right up until week one. It happens...

Re: XFL.com 1/14 Updated Rosters

We are a week away from cutdown day. Hopefully there isn’t a lot of confusion then. There will be 144 players cut in total. Give or take a few, depending on what players go on injured reserve.

Re: Tampa Bay Vipers sign suspended NFL WR Antonio Callaway

It’s a smart move on Callaway’s part. He’s already under NFL suspension. Even if he would have signed with an NFL team. He wouldn’t be able to play. If Callaway has his head on straight. He can really prove himself. The XFL gives Antonio Callaway the opportunity to rehab his reputation. Setting asid...

Re: ESPN's CFP championship coverage gives insights into potential XFL telecast features

Good post Johnny. I noticed these features too. The NFL tends to try out a lot of new broadcast concepts at the Pro Bowl. It's a couple of weeks before the XFL season starting and I wouldn't be shocked if a couple of the things, they experiment with, are actually going to be a part of XFL telecasts....

Re: Chad Johnson scheduled for tryout as a kicker

Not holding my breath, but best case scenario is he's willing to stick around on Team 9 and gets a shot at the end of the season. Either way, it's a fun story. I am just ok on the Team 9 idea. That's provided that Chad Johnson has a great tryout. I am pretty uptight when it comes to this kind of st...

Re: Which team should I be a fan of?

The closest team to where I live is St. Louis, the team that has the most connections to my school is Dallas, and the team with the best uniforms is (?). This, along with putting my NFL fan allegiance up for Free Agency is keeping me up at night. Sway me to a side! If it weren't for my New York roo...

Re: XFL preseason games?

For broadcast purposes, it's important to do a "dry run" during these preseason games, especially if the networks are banking on technological innovations to help draw in viewers. That's not even to speak of the necessity of coaches/players/refs wanting some live game work to prep for the season an...

Re: NFL Practice Squad/Futures Contracts Tracker

So did no other team ever sign Shawn Oakman? I was really excited to see this guy get a chance. It’s up to the XFL teams. There have already been player injuries since minicamp and now into training camp. It sucks not getting into training camp and the joint practices. Even if you don’t make your o...
