I still think Luck has one of the best hard counts in the league, even from being a rookie. 

 

Yeah he is, there's no doubt about that.

does anyone know if AV was listed with a groin probable, or what status was he?  he looked pretty decent on the EPK

 

From memory I think it's cleared up?

Except the fact that he wasn't actually holding. 

He did have his hands inside his pads so it really was a hold.  32 should have let him go right away. Bad player makes bad play. Hmmm

Playing smart so far. Not doing too much, but capitalized on a short field. Very good.

It's powerful, I bet he could shatter glass haha 

 

So you're saying Luck is going to make it into a Marvel movie is my takeaway here.

If that is a hold, and I agree that it could be interpreted that way, then Olinemen hold on every single play.  So if they are going to call that, then they need to throw a flag on every play from scrimmage.  What I am advocating for in consistency, if that is a hold then so are the holds on the Oline, because you are taught to grab the inside of the shoulder pads when blocking.

OPI? The rare call. 

 

MM looks rattled here, I'm liking the play calling on D so far.

Bingo.


Why I hate holding flags... it's like refs just have an RNG running for whether to call holding or not.

    • I would say that is more lip service, because when the announcers talk about players, tey talk about what teams if any they were on, how they don't get a chance to improve on the practice and how the XFL gives them game experience to really improve their game.   I don't think it will happen for two main reasons: 1)  The NFL is not going to want to share their pie, so to speak.  If the XFL were to have an arrangement with the NFL, the XFL would probably cost more money than they would contribute.  2) Over the years the NFL system has proven pretty good at weeding ut the players that really just don't have what it takes to contribute in the NFL.  There are not a lot of players that slip through the cracks and would have been great if only they got the chance.   But all that being said, I've watched 3 XFL games so far and it's not bad football. It's not great and I probably won't follow a team or anything but being sick one weekend and still recovering the follow weekend, it was something to do.  Saw some big time hits, the XP system allows for some drama at the end of games and saw players that fought hard to pick up first downs or TDs.
    • I know... A lot of it is teams just don't want to lose starting level QB and the value for starting level QB just goes up and up and up every next year because the cap rises. Also, another aspect is - a lot of those players get those contracts after just 3-4 years in the league and their teams pay more for what they think their QB can develop into in the future than what they are now. With some of them their QB takes the next step, and with others they don't and end up being 'average-ish' QBs on high salary... 
    • Basing the value of a QB based on salary is faulty logic
    • The XFL isn't a developmental league, it should be, but it isn't. They have 2 year contracts, players can't just play a year then leave..
    • List your best QBs in the league. Anything between around 13 and 18 is average-ish... You will see that at least several of your "average-ish" QBs have been paid record setting salary at some point over the last 3-4 years. I don't get why this is such a contentious evaluation. Ask @NFLfan if she thinks their QB is anything more than an average QB in the league. The point is they are not anywhere close to elite.    Of course the Superbowl should be the ultimate goal. It doesn't mean I expect it every year or even most years. But I do think having a legitimate chance to get there should be a goal(you still need luck, health, good matchups, etc.). I don't think Dak or Cousins or Carr give us that chance, especially if you give them 35M+ salary.
