BREAKING NEWS:
Landry Jones to make XFL debut for Dallas Renegades in Week 2, head coach Bob Stoops confirms -CBS

Stoops wants to WIN

>> Landry Jones, the first player to sign with an XFL team, will make his long-awaited debut for the Dallas Renegades on Sunday when they take on the Los Angeles Wildcats, head coach Bob Stoops announced. Landry has been recovering from a knee injury he suffered during training camp and is what ultimately held him out of the opener.

Landry nearly started in that opener against St. Louis after being cleared to play, but Stoops elected to have him rest up for one more week. He's worked with the first-team offense this entire week, so there looks to be zero doubt that he'll be the man under center when they take on the Wildcats, who are coming into this game after falling to the Houston Roughnecks, 37-17.

"We're planning on starting Landry and playing the whole game," Stoops told reporters on Thursday. "He's felt great all week, so we're anxious to see him out there." <<

Landry has a ton of pressure on him now. If that offense doesn't look infinitely better, there is going to be a lot of negative press headed his way.

He got hurt the 1st day of practice, so he might not be fully prepped & ready until week 4 because of lack of practice & preseason. 1 week of practice when you havent seen live gameplay in a few years is a tall order.

The loser of that LA-Dallas game will be feeling a lot of pressure.

@XFLKonnor
NEW: Hearing through a trusted source that, somewhat surprisingly, Josh Johnson is trending towards STARTING for the Wildcats this weekend.

Would be a massive boost for that team and all offensive players.
Giddy up, this one will be solid.
RENEGADES SZN (1-1)
Dallas Stars (34-19-6)
Chicago Cubs (0-0)
LA Lakers (41-12)

Thank God!!! Phillip Nelson was terrible. Had me shaking my head all game long. We have too much talent for that kind of performance, first game or not. We need this one.

Stoops looks like he wants to WIN. The XFL OVER Performed in week one. All the coaches were caught off guard i'm sure by the attendance and TV ratings. Now that its real their Alpha instinct and drive to WIN is kicking up a notch, make that 2.

Biggest disappointment in week one was Dallas. Nelson or no Nelson. The Renegades offense was poor.
