Re: The process of the XFL capitalizing on NFL cuts may not be a short one

I like Taylor Heinicke, who sounded like Ron Rivera's guy earlier in the preseason (even reflected in my sim where Heinicke went to the Rivera-coached Hitmen as a free agent). But he likes Kyle Allen too, and they're pretty much stuck with Will Grier, who wasn't good in the preseason, not that that'...

Re: This weekend is BIG for the XFL

Always remember Steve Gleason, drafted by the Bolts but never saw the field (landed with the Saints PS two days after the draft and went from there). As seen with Landry Jones, Luck seems to have a much better setup this time around. Guys also might need some injury time. An out of the blue name tha...

Re: Breaking Down Potential NFC XFL QBs playing Thursday

Lynch might need some time, was his first game back out of concussion protocol--and you could see it. Course that offensive line, I think they played the same one the whole game, was horrible. Especially Jordan Roos, yeeeeeeeech. You could almost see Lynch being horrified at going in after Smith got...

Re: Breaking Down Potential NFC XFL QBs playing Thursday

Even moreso that he was actually Eli's backup last year, might have a chance to finally stick with a team for more than a year if Giants keep three QBs

Re: Breaking Down Potential NFC XFL QBs playing Thursday

Taysom Hill is NO's designated swiss army knife, not only are they not letting him go, he'll be picked up faster than you can say X-Bowl if he was. Better to go Taryn Christion (IIRC was at the LA showcase?) if we're going that route.

Gotta be realistic here.

Re: Shawn Oakman has received an invite to The XFL Draft

He was listed at 290 playing in the AAL, so 3-4 DE seems to be it kind of in the Calais Campbell (when he was in Arizona) mold with his height. In fact that would seem to sort of preclude him from playing the nose in either a 3-4 or a 4-3 as the average for those guys seems to be 6-3. It is possible...

Re: The process of the XFL capitalizing on NFL cuts may not be a short one

The one person I remember coming in and being a legit player off a futures contract (remember these come usually a day or two after the end of the season, however long said team's goes) was Brandon Browner, then again he also came in a four-time CFL all-star. When the majority of futures deals usual...

Re: PMP and the myth of big names

It's all true, but right now the league needs to build up to it. I mean you'd have seen Tate Martell instead of being used for a few gimmick plays against UF be the first test subject as an early collegiate entry and possibly followed by Keytaon Thompson. Then maybe Kaepernick if he's serious about ...

Re: Gage Gubrud

UPDATE: Anthony Gordon was indeed named starter against NMSU on Saturday. I fully expect both QBs to play and spilling into UNC, perhaps all three (Trey Tinsley the third) I'd look at Houston on Friday the 13th as an indicator of who's what, then keep your eyes on a potential Kelly Bryant-type situa...

Re: PMP and the myth of big names

The AFL outbid the NFL (back when that was possible) for Namath and Cannon--which since the AFL beat the NFL in court for Cannon that would be a victory. Nowadays, it ain't happening unless you set yourself up as a direct NFL competitor, and again, much as people pine for the plight of Trevor Lawren...
