McMahon did a good job hiring Oliver Luck. If it fails it’s not because they put a poor product out there. 

Yeah, just like the AAF. It didn’t fail bc of the play on the on the field. It failed bc of financing.

Could he be Haskins’ back up in August/September? Possibly...

PJ Walker of the Houston Wildcats has 4 TDs in 2 & a half quarters. I’d love to see him get a work out to be a back up for Haskins.

Gameday today at 2 pm, broadcast on ABC.  Who is planning to watch?

I missed it :(

Sucks because they have an ex-JMU player on there (Abdullah). Hope to watch the replay (if they have one)

It was on ABC, so I’m sure they’re will. The La vs Hou game is on Fox.

He hired Luck and let him do it's thing.  I highly recommend listening to Something To Wrestle with Bruce Prichard podcast's episode about the XFL.  It was such a cluster at the beginning.  With Vince hiring Luck, who ran a similar scale organization in NFL Europe and with connections in the college game to get some players to come out, it was an extremely smart decision.  Also smart of him to hire Paul Heyman and Prichard to run the wrestling shows, so he can devote attention wherever he sees fit, but has people in place who understand and execute the vision when he isn't there.  

To think, we almost had Vince as owner before Snyder stepped in.

I like it! Really good coaches, 10 or so players who have played or can still play in nfl, and fast moving innovative adjustments the nfl should adapt. A few years ago I wanted Scoobie and would have loved having cardale rather than butt fumble playing in the regular season games.

‪P.J. Walker makes stellar XFL debut

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/02/09/p-j-walker-makes-stellar-xfl-debut/

P.J. Walker, who was known in the NFL as Philip Walker, had a very good day for the Houston Roughnecks, leading them to a 37-17 win over the L.A. Wildcats. Walker completed 23 of 39 passes for 272 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. He spread the ball around to eight different receivers, adding 26 yards rushing on four attempts.

Me too. People keep wondering why I’m always defending fringe starters or back ups and this is why. I love seeing a mid round, late round or undrafted player become a starter.

OMG I felt awful for Aaron Murray, he didn’t play well, but Matt McGloin looked like a possible back up candidate in the NFL next year.
