Who is coaching the Defenders? Belichick? Surprised they threw deep

Kevin Gilbride, that paragon of coaching.

I know Gilbride  is coaching the Guardians, I was asking about the Defenders because they were throwing deep even though the game was over. Just making a joke about Belichick

This Pep Hamilton guy is going to get an NFL look soon. Very impressive demeanor and calls plays on the offensive side. Former Jets coach too.

Kind of wild with McGloin arguing with Gilbride on the sidelines and basically blaming his bad play on the coaching staff. Gilbride handled it pretty well.

Should Cardale Jones get another shot at being a backup in the NFL?

So far, thru two games:

16 of 26 (62%) for 235 Yards, 2 TD, 0 INT, 28 Yards Rushing

23 of 37 (62%) for 276 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 14 Yards Rushing

In two impressive wins.

Are guys like Luke Falk better?

Overall very weak Qb play. You’d think they could have gotten a better group than this.

XSLs are investment silver

You had to love the Week 1 hype, people like Chris Collinsworth putting their name on it.  As with all the other failed Spring leagues, ain't no talent.

Based on what I read at least in several situations players signed to XFL contracts aren’t allowed out of them when NFL teams wanted to sign them. It’s a big deal that some of the other new leagues faced and I think they usually relented and let the player sign I think with no compensation not 100% sure of that. That’s a big deal in getting better players to sign. They all want to play in the NFL financially and competition wise. So if you don’t let them out of their XFL contracts you won’t get the better players. And that looks like the case here. I never heard of most of these guys.

No. THis is the equivalent of guys doing well in pre-season...if it even reaches that level of play

The Guardians definitely need to go ground and pound next week before they get into a hole. Even with 2 backups on the line I thought the running game actually looked pretty good. Oh and it would help if Mcgloin could play like week 1 again.

Really the only reason to watch is out of utter boredom for lack of sports at this time of year.  The Rangers are still fun to watch but they can't play often enough for me right now.

Granted he’s playing against scrubs who will be bagging groceries in a couple months I actually agree

 

 

bring in Cardale on a league minimum deal  to backup Sam

Agreed.  February-March is the worst time for sports.  XFL isn’t going to cut it.  Wish there was snow so I could go skiing.

They've been drawing in the 20-30000 range which isn't bad for basically a no-name player league in Feb. McMahon has the start up money and he apparently is getting zero from the networks so it all depends on how long he and team owners are willing to lose money. And if they can create an effective business model. The NFL has not been willing in the past to affiliate with any of these leagues and help with expenses. And not sure Vince wants to be known as a minor league even though that's exactly what the XFL is.  I'd personally prefer a spring to summer league myself.

The short time I spent watching yesterday was a waste of time. 

Initially it was intriguing now its not, shabby ass football with terrible announcing and field coverage. 

No thanks.

Bush league football. 

IMO the ABC team felt like the B team. I enjoyed the Fox coverage more last week too. Felt more like a legit game.

I like football and if all that was on TV was televised electronic football I'd probably watch it. Look I watched the NY Streets on Youtube so I'd watch anything.  I think according to Youtube there were about 200 in the world watching it.  Considering the time frame the XFL had to work with it's not bad, it's likable. I'll watch both games today because it's freezing around here and I have nothing better to do. And it's fun. I liked watching yesterday the NY Qb fighting on the sideline with his coach. We know this happens a lot in football we just saw it up close and personal. The sideline reporter even commented in all the years she's been covering football she never saw a Qb diss the coaching staff the way McGloin did yesterday. I mean who wants to take the blame and admit they are terrible. None of us.

The whole transparency thing backfiring on the @XFLGuardians. In separate interviews, a struggling (now benched) McGloin questions play calling and blames others. Instant QB controversy. #xflguardians

Was that backfiring? Seems like it was working as intended

ABC production of the Dallas/LA game sucks. They don’t show replays. Stop with the idiotic sideline interviews.

Does anyone actually care what the players think after every play?

Not sure about this XFL kickoff rule. They say it’s safer but not sure I see it. It looks weird and not many good runs. Might as well just start from the 25.

The communications between the OC and the Qb I’m finding annoying. It’s just these long coded play calls and after a while it gets a little lame, it doesn’t really offer any real insight into the game. Now mic-ing and televising challenges like they did in the Alliance is cool.

That was LA's game to win imo.

Way to screw it up. Again.
