Small sample size (2 games). But so far the quality of officiating in the XFL looks higher than what I saw in the NFL this year.

I find the QB free agency stories amusing. Rumors abound: Brady going to the Titans, Rivers to Indy, Dalton to the Pats etc. etc.
My gut feeling is that Brees returns to NO for another year.

I need some football- I'll give the XFL a try over the weekend.

If you give credence to all the QB rumors in this social media driven hot take/ clickbait culture then the Chicago Bears are going to have 14 veteran QBs at camp this year. And the latest is they are going to trade Khalil Mack for the #1 or #2 pick and draft another QB.

Rumors ... ie internet Jackwagons who just make stuff up.

Going to the first Battlehawks home game. St. Louis sold out the first game. 27,000+. Just opening up the lower bowl. I hope this league survives.

I'm glad the Skins decided to cut bait with Josh Norman, Paul Richardson and Jordan Reed.

New coaching staff should give the younger players on the roster a chance along with using the draft and free agency to bring in other players.

Although I'm a huge football fan, I have zero interest in the XFL. grin cool

Why not? Vince McMahon? Don't want to get heart broken by a league that might only last a season? Something else?

I've watched some of the games, but not closely enough to notice the rules differences, except the extra point stuff.

The Super Bowl has conditioned me to give up watching football until late summer. laugh

In the meantime, I get my NFL fix watching and listening to and discussing football related news. cool

My main interest in the XFL at this point is how it might affect the NFL. Will any XFL formatting—like its kickoff—get adopted by the NFL?

I watched a little bit of one game last weekend. While I doubt that any of the XFL players are good enough to warm a bench in the NFL, their level of play was certainly better than that of an average college team.

I doubt I'll watch much of the inaugural season, but I'll probably land on a game once or twice more while channel surfing.

Best,

Geoff

The games are a lot of fun. More of a party atmosphere than NFL games. If your team wins that just a plus.

Cardinals acquired WR DeAndre Hopkins and a fourth-round pick from the Texans in exchange for RB David Johnson and a second-round pick.

pop waitwhat

Quote
Staggering, stupefying. Bill O'Brien's foolish loss is the Cardinals' immense gain. Hopkins had a "down" 2019 as he caught "only" 104 balls for 1,165 yards and seven touchdowns, but there was quite literally zero evidence he had lost a step. The best body control receiver in the entire NFL still does not turn 28 until June. It's a grievous misstep for Houston and gift of a lifetime for Kyler Murray, who lacked consistent weapons as a rookie. As was the case with Hopkins and Deshaun Watson, he should work beautifully with Murray when the sophomore is outside the pocket. Murray also has the cannon necessary to find Hopkins down the sideline from the pocket. Even with the change of scenery, Hopkins remains a locked-in, top-three WR1. Bill O'Brien, call your attorney.

Wow. Houston front office should be fired. facepalm

Austin Hooper going to Cleveland as well, apparently....because they deeeeefinitely needed more receiving talent... rolleyes

I was hoping the Skins would look at Austin Hooper. Oh well.... cool

He's 37, probably should retire. Raiders paying him a lot of money on a 1 year contract for someone his age, plus he gets to play in Las Vegas, should the team actually play there this year.

Free agency is banans already. grin

I'd imagine it will be easy enough for us to figure out who's playing in a different uniform.

Watching players on different teams will make foe an exciting season.

I'm curious to see if the Bears or Pats pick up Cam Newton or Jameis Winston. laugh cool

snax Should be an interesting season. Hopefully the health scare is gone and we'll have some very excited fan bases.

I wonder if there was something amiss with Deandre Hopkins. I remember watching one game last year where he missed a couple of balls, but overall I believe he was one of, if not, the best receivers in the league. They really have made some scratch your head moves in recent history.

SO who goes to New England? Dalton? Winston? Cam? snax

I don't know of a single Houston Texans fan, nor of anyone here that pays *any* attention to the team, that's happy with that trade nor BOB right now. They didn't even get a first round pick for him. You know, where they could have drafted a decent wide out. facepalm

According to Michael Irvin, O'Brien compared Hopkins to Aaron Hernandez during a private meeting. Not many professional relationships could recover after that type of insinuation.

I don't know if this link will work for everyone, but maybe it will if you don't visit the site too often.

Inside the friction between Bill O’Brien, DeAndre Hopkins Some of the same stuff as above, and more. This makes me like BOB less, though DeAndre downplayed the reports and was professional about it. Good on him to move on.

Draft on Thursday! cool

I am living in virtual meetings these days so seeing these guys do it will be interesting. I’d be fine if both NYC teams took OL but that would be boring.


In other NFL news, Gronkowski is joining Brady in Tampa. That division will be entertaining, fans or not.

I hope there is a season. The NFL is the greatest unscripted drama ever. Entertainment wise, it’s king. Some of that starts Thursday. taz

It's going to be interesting to watch the draft unfold tonight, both because of the usual reasons and because of all of the technical hurdles imposed by Covid-19 social distancing.

Wow. The Packers traded up to get QB Jordan Love!

Shades of 2005, when they picked Aaron Rodgers while Brett Favre still had a few good years left in him. Love will have a similar chance to watch one of the all-time greats in action before he gets his shot. I hope history repeats with a favorable outcome but with a smoother transition this time.

Of course for the near future, it's being seen as squandering a first round pick on a backup position. After reaching the NFC Championship last year, Green Bay has a realistic shot at reaching the Super Bowl this year (providing of course that the pandemic will wane and that there will be a 2020 season). A first round receiver could have gone a long way toward providing Rodgers with another solid target.

Best,

Geoff

As I mentioned in the NBA thread, I've been enjoying good sports video content despite the fact that sports are having a time out due to the pandemic.

Here's a don't miss series for Packers fans, which also may be of interest to those who want to learn more about the early days of the NFL and discover why Green Bay managed to survive the lean times when all other small community teams were weeded out of the league:

Packers Legacy Documentary Series

Here's the first video to get you started:

Noooooooooo!

Brotha Moe, the Skins drafted another Buckeye. laugh

On paper, it looks like my team drafted for the "right" positions. Of course, the proof will have to show up on the field.

I've got a feeling the Skins defense will be better than last year. They should be able to keep the games close.

Unfortunately, I think the offense will struggle between a new OC and a 2nd year QB learning a new system. cool

I'm still enjoying the Packers Legacy Documentary Series, as a new episode is released each week, one for each decade.

In the most recent episode, I discovered that Green Bay passed on Joe Montana in both the second and third rounds of the 1979 draft. Who was the guy declined to pick the future Hall of Famer? None other than Packers quarterback legend (and then head coach) Bart Starr!

Starr also picked Rich Campbell over Ronnie Lott two years later.

More here:

Packers could have had Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, if only

A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

I have so many find memories of watching him year after year in the 70s growing up.
We would hike to the local Sunoco gas station to beg for player cards hoping to score a Bob Griese or a Larry Csonka.

I recall this was happening with the old L.A. Rams, when they were signing old quarterbacks for one-year deals, Namath, Bartkowski, they all were busts as I can remember.

There's not much news in sports these pandemic days, but this is worth noting:

QB Cam Newton reaches 1-year deal with Patriots, sources say

They need somebody. I hope the rest helped. He is such a dynamic player when he plays well.

While it's not my money, Cam Newton's deal with the Pats makes very little sense.

Granted Cam's his injury status and not having played in 2 years should be a concern and is the reason for an incentive laden contract, I believe he should have gotten a better deal.

Chase Daniel doesn't have a similar resume by any stretch of the imagination and he got a much better deal with the Lions. cool
