Re: Tuesday Games

We're resting players. This game is just to see who gets to start, and who gets cut. Winston is taking the old NFL last preseason game approach. Not showing any of his cards, so to speak to his week one opponent. Still, blown coverages lead to no trip to Wildcats training headquarters in Long Beach.

Re: Tuesday Games

Tre Mcbride received the TD for LA Walker to Sam Mobley for a 40+ yard in and out to the house for HOU Cook to Khalil Lewis for 55 yards on deep route which looked to be busted coverage That’s a June Jones specialty right there. Designing routes with 4 receivers that confuse coverages. The LA secon...

Re: XFL Show raves about comeback period during XFL scrimmages

Apparently, I'm a bit behind. I have no idea what this comeback period at the end of the halves is all about. It’s similar to college football. Inside of two minutes, the clock temporarily stops after every play until the ball and offense are set. Here is the XFL’s rationale behind the comeback per...

Re: XFL Show raves about comeback period during XFL scrimmages

I heard their show this morning. Good stuff. They are league enthusiasts for sure. So it’s easy for some to dismiss them but I think their enthusiasm is genuine and warranted. There’s a lot of rumors flying around about what the XFL has planned from a broadcast innovation standpoint but nothing is c...

Re: Talent Comparison XFL 1.0 vs AAF vs XFL 2.0

I rank it somewhere below the UFL (which set the standard for the level of talent a second-tier pro league could get), slightly above the AAF and substantially above the FXFL. They've landed legit second-string NFL players and solid coaches. The closest I can compare it to is arena football at its ...

Re: Talent Comparison XFL 1.0 vs AAF vs XFL 2.0

That’s a lot to take in. College football is so much better now than it was two decades ago. In terms of overall player quality and depth. Plus the college and pro game are more similar now than they were in the 2000’s. So the player pool for a secondary league is better now than it was then. XFL 1....
