Is anyone actually giving the XFL a chance to redeem itself?

Watching these guys call plays is like watching that NFL lip reading video that’s going around.

So they place the ball at the 39 yard line, announced a 15 yard penalty against somebody, and the ball still at the 39 yard line

Anyone else watching week 2? Looks like a lot less people in the stands.

This is where it’s going to get interesting. As the weeks go on do the attendance and tv ratings stick. 
 

Still 35-40k for Seattle today expected so I’d say this week is a win for the league no matter what.

Definitely less people compared to last week in DC's stadium.  Who knows what they will report though.  They may only report a small decline but it looks more like 3-4k less from the few shots they have shown of the stadium.  Maybe it will fill in a little as the game goes on.

Seattle definitely supports their own.  

Incredible.

That drive looked like a normal NFL drive :shrug:

Also, everyone in the old thread said teams would go for 3 points every time. So far, no team has gone for 3. 

Winning teams get to split $100,000 so they are trying to win.  Sound football decisions are being employed.

Statistically, it's better to go for 3 every time -- but that assumes that teams will score more than 1 TD per game. :lol:

The worst play is to go for 1. Any coach who does that (except in rare situations at the end of the game) should be fired.

True, nfl kicker extra point way ahead of xfl extra point. I would go 2 or 3 depending on the situation.

Gilbride getting called out as a crappy playcaller on national TV by his own QB.    I love this product.

Like everyone that watches football didn't know that already.

This feels like preseason NFL football.  Specifically the 4th quarters of those games before they make the majority of their cuts.

Mcgloin was funny, but I don’t think Gilbride is calling the plays

They said earlier that the OC had to change his offense to fit Gilbride's system.   He may not be calling the plays, but it's his crappy offense.

I think they should put the Defenders in the NFL and drop that other Washington team out.

Glanville's interview shows why unders are the play.  They aren't even trying to call defenses so they're reacting to formations.   It's so much easier to install a defense than an offense, especially with crappy quarterbacks.

Wasn't aware there is a 40-man roster practice squad based in Dallas that all 8 teams can draw from.
