Re: The final four XFL Head Coach/GM openings

I really like the idea of Isaac Bruce as team president and then combine that with an offensive minded head coach with experience. To have Bruce as the face of the franchise and build relationships in the community to generate fan and business support would be a huge success it would be better than...

Re: How far outside the box is the XFL willing to go?

Hal Mumme as Dallas OC? How is his offense? Is it going to be a boring conservative offense, ala The Dallas Cowboys? Or will there be innovation? Hal Mumme is one of the founders of The Air Raid offense. I threw his name out there because he’s available, is friends with Stoops and has Texas ties, b...

Re: Top Coaching Candidates

If you want Isaac Bruce on XFL St. Louis, make him the President of the Team, basically an ambassador for the team. Hiring him or any of the Greatest Show on Turf as head coach would be considered a gimmick and the league has said that they are trying to stay away from that. With Bruce as Team Presi...

Re: The final four XFL Head Coach/GM openings

I would expect that the last four picks for Head Coaches would all have years of coaching experience, especially in St. Louis. As I said in another thread, if I am the XFL, I would not hire Isaac Bruce as head coach, but instead as President of the St. Louis XFL team. As President of St. Louis XFL ...

Re: How far outside the box is the XFL willing to go?

This article says that letting the fans call the plays in the XFL will be a stupid idea:

Except for Stoops, Trestman, Zorn and Hamilton called plays in the NFL and I don't think all three of them would give up play calling to the fans.

Re: How far outside the box is the XFL willing to go?

I just finished the episode of Spring Forward, the Spring League's podcast, with Doug Whaley. At the end, Whaley makes a reference to letting fans be involved in the play calling. Coupled with Luck's reference to letting the fans call a play from a few months back, I think it's time to start to wor...

LA does not name their coach/GM but their team President:

Re: XFL's momentum is waning

I'd have chosen Oakland. Oh..... and when's the last time Oliver visited Seattle in February? He said something about spring like weather....... truth is......it's been brutal. We had record snows. And that's happening more often than not. And this city ain't Buffalo. It's not prepared for that. Th...
