If you don't want him, feel free to send him to DC. We can send down a bus of fans to fill out a few rows for you as compensation.

It's gettin' hot in here...and we about to burn 'em up!

Looks like the 2020 XFL champion may be 2-3 seconds short of playing a full season :?

That's a pretty cool Viper too. Where did you find that?

If that pic is XFL approved, it looks like the Seattle Dragon does not have wings. That sorta explains the "S" logo with just the flame, body, and tail...no wings.

Underwhelming offensive first half for the Dragons here at CenturyLink.

Underwhelming pay but a nice win in front of a great crowd.

Two big plays along with a solid run game and a bend but don't break defense carried the day.

Quarterback play has to be better. Silvers missed some early opportunities and never seemed to get comfortable. Could have run for yards early and wildly overthrew open receivers. Weather and a sprained ankle may have affected him but he needs to be better. Glanvilles BTF (Blitz the formation) defense was giving the offense fits especially in the first half.

The run game was solid. All three backs looked good at times. I did see one cut back opportunity that was missed on the last drive but for the most part they hit the holes when there were there. The O-line was decent, especially considering that 3 starters are injured Glanville sent the house quite a few times and made it tough on the offense in general.

The defense looked a little tired giving up long drives in the second half. They need to get off the field on 3rd down. They did make enough plays to keep the Vipers out of the end zone as well as give the Dragons some points.

I'm nervous when ever Laycayo is on the field. He missed badly on one field goal and squeaked one in from 27yds out. After last weeks short kickoff, I was afraid he wouldn't get to the 20yd line on that last kick. Overall, his KOs were good. Needs work on the FGs.

One nice return on the KO (Santiago?). Seattle had great field position quite a few times today.

I think it's time to seriously look at BJ Daniels at least for a series or two. QBs are in this league (rather than the NFL) for a reason and it's usually because they are not accurate or can't read defenses rather than lack of mobility. If our QB is going to miss open receivers, he may as well be able to run around to buy time or move the chains. I wonder how Tampa would have done if they went with Flowers as the starter. Maybe next week for both guys.

GO DRAGONS!
