A fantastic ambassador!😬

  He's riding the bus home; and if the rest of the team is also riding the bus, then he is on a different bus with worse toilets.

This weeks game just show very clearly. It is all about a decent QB. You can make an entertaining game with middling talent on the rest of the field. But without competent Qbs the game is boring. If the XFL wants to not fail like all that came before it, they have to actually pay serious bucks for quality QB talent.

Horrible QB play.  Just look at Tampa's depth chart-- Ugh. Is this better than the AAF?

 

I though Cardale Jones did well in the first game.

There aren't enough good QBs in the NFL. Where is the XFL supposed to find them? The entire point is to develop talent so they might get to the NFL one day.

 

Maybe Tom Brady could be tempted?

Colin Kaepernick was available but his contract demands were too high for the XFL

Bad quarterbacks a big problem for the XFL

Posted by Michael David Smith on February 16, 2020, 5:39 AM EST
 

The XFL’s first weekend was a success, with solid TV ratings and generally favorable fan reactions to the upstart league’s innovative rules. Week 2 of the XFL is a different story.

 

Two more XFL games were played on Saturday, neither of them was compelling, and both of them suffered from bad quarterback play. The quarterbacks playing in the XFL right now just don’t look capable of delivering the kind of football that modern fans have grown accustomed to watching.

 

Obviously, no quarterback who’s good enough to start in the NFL is going to play in the XFL. But for its games to be entertaining, the the XFL at least needs quarterbacks who are able to play well against XFL defenses. And currently, the XFL doesn’t have enough of those quarterbacks.

Or the NFL, for that matter. Kaep would be in the league if he wasn't demanding starting QB money.

And after sitting for 4 years, he'd be no better than McGloin. I don't hate Kaep but people need to stop with the idea he can still play. 

 

On a completely different topic, I went on the XFL Shop yesterday and noticed they are out of 3/4 of what they are selling.

....sorry but the lipstick on his arse is his own......he hit the limelight way too early and his focus became "tats 'n poses", forgetting what the hell he was getting paid for.....opposing DC's figured him out.....once that happened, he was not that good and certainly cannot be a consideration 4 years hence.....he's the NFL version of the "SS Minnow".......

I live in a state that now allows online sports wagering. Putting a few bucks on XFL games certainly enhances my interest, though I'm just guessing with a league less that 2 weeks old.

Yeah the attendance in LA doesn't look good here.

 

They also lowered the ticket prices in LA yesterday.

I'll tune in to that one, because I want to see him put on the Bills hat when the game has concluded.

15 yard cushion and he calls a fair catch falling backwards.  This is why the XFL won't last.

Those Renegade uniforms really don't look very Renegadeish.

I imagine this is what a Chargers home game would look like if you removed the away fans

If you ever wondered where the 2000s Bills jerseys ended up, I suspect a few ended up in Dallas and had Renegade logos stuck on.

LA sucks as a sports community. An XFL team in Buffalo would do way better.
