UFL spring football (XFL and USFL merge) (2 Viewers)

I thought some teams didn't look ready and the attendance numbers tell me some fans weren't too.
Four week camp with late arrivals probably fueled that.
I'd be very careful with DFS and lines. Watch some on YouTube and if they look all out of sorts then discard the game entirely. A lot of sincere confusion yesterday that was obvious and not finger pointing blame garbage.
 
StL Battlehawks had 40,000+ in attendance at their game. Wow. Kroenke really screwed over that town and they’re desperate for pro ball.

Yeah they opened up the upper level at two stadiums today.
Great news for the league
 
Second week that I question their draft choices to pair up with Taamu.
Kudos to him, he's persevering well but geesh get him some more players
 
Still loving it.
I can understand if this is a basketball weekend and next weekend is better for them.
 
That’s good to hear. I hope the pick cities WITHOUT existing NFL teams. Right now 3 of the 8 teams are in NFL cities (Houston, DC, Michigan ) and I would thinking finding cities that are starved for pro football would make sense. Also, crazy that 3 of the 8 UFL teams are all in Texas.

We have a saying down here about how many seasons there are...and there are two.

1. Football season
2. Waiting for football season season
 
1.5 weeks left in the regular season.
StL, San Antonio, Birmingham and Michigan already clinched all 4 playoff spots.

Some players I think get some NFL run this summer…
McCarron - already has been on NFL rosters as a backup QB. Can’t imagine it doesn’t happen again for him this coming year.
Adrian Martinez QB BIRMINGHAM - I mean, that team lost their first game on Saturday over 2 seasons of spring football. This guy has to get a shot in some NFL training camp this summer, right?

Cody Latimer was looking like a man among boys at WR for San Antonio, but he got hurt in yesterday’s game. Imagins he’d get into an NFL camp this summer.

Sal Canella TE Arlington - this guy seems to make plays and have been on a few NFL practice squads over the years. I’m rooting for him…and not only because Canella is a family name in 1 of the branches in my greaseball family tree ;)

McCarron seemed a lock to backup Levis. Rudolph changed that but I bet the door is open still. Cincy is about the same. Supposedly he's really well liked by them. Maybe he gets a chance. All good vibes is definitely in his favor.

Canella tells a story of being black balled by Lafleur. I've shared it before. It's essentially he kept promising him time and bouncing him on and off the roster n PS. Canella turned down offers from other teams as Lafleur preached loyalty but he never got his chance. The other 31 didn't much like him sharing that story and more view it as he should take what he can get, shush, and be a good soldier.

He had a heckuva spring last year and didn't get an invite til late IIRC and too late like who makes it signed then.
 
I expect tight ends (or anyone big n mobile) to be invited with the new kickoff rules, if not for another reason.
Some of these small speedy returns guys give a Joe Morris vibe. All the game planning in the world can't help you see the guy behind the big fellas.
The Cowboys have enjoyed Turpin as such on some plays and now it'll be a 5-9 guy flying behind blockers on returns.
A few teams drafted speedy lil bugger return men.
Besides the finding stuff, the coverage team big fellas have to have some speed to them too. Ideally I think they want like five TEs and five LBs.
In the XFL, the CBs and WRs up the sideline per usual would get blocked aside and create a lane for the return man. Maybe NFL teams will use a safety? Ya gotta own that lane no matter what. Once that happens it's like they diagram with mobile QBs- contain and keep em inside til ya make the play.
Safety LB tweeners or the faster LBs? FBs?

Not to overstate this. They're not going to overhaul a roster just for kickoffs.

Speed n toughness, read blocks, as some say-pure type football play
