Re: Notable players that went undrafted today in day one of The XFL Draft

Marcus Mariota has played his way out of a his starting job in Tennessee.....indicating he's likely done there and is about to enter the wonderful world of journeyman backups. There won't be that many opportunities for him to start again in the NFL......so would the former number one overall pick li...

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

Manziel going back to Texas A&M has always been a march to his own beat kind of guy.....being on a pro football team is kinda like a military experience in that you're expected to bond with and work as a team member with your comrades. And as a qb....be the leader.....not a ringleader. Manziel just ...

AAF Epilogue

What would the rosters of the XFL reboot look like if the AAF were still in business and the 200 or so players selected in the recently completed XFL draft weren't available. It just proves that at least on a player level.....the AAF was a solid league with the best next level talent available. It's...

Re: What if The NFL did an XFL style draft?

I see the XFL move toward an NFL style draft of post cuts players available at October draft time.....my personal addition would be a 1st and 2nd round territorial phase before an open phase because I believe locally identifiable players help with local fan support for a alternative pro league. As f...

Re: 2020 Season Schedule

Re: XFL Draft Day 2 Live Thread

One of the noteworthy names on the Seattle Dragons draft list is "Ifedi".....as in O-lineman Martin Ifedi. He's the older brother of the Seahawks Germain Ifedi.....who has to lead the world in false starts. Anyway I hope Martin does a lot less of that even with the quickened pace of things After rea...

Re: XFL Draft Day 2 Live Thread

If I can be off topic for a moment to respond.......the Mariners took 19 years to make the playoffs for the first time......it's now been 18 and counting since they last made it (2001). Entering their 44th season in 2020 here's what they have to show. Just 3 Al west titles and one wild card berth......

Re: XFL Draft Day 2 Live Thread

It's really great seeing all the local coverage of this draft, including a live "Dragons draft tracker" at My northwest.com. This occurs during Seahawk season. That says something.
