Good for him. He was definitely a solid member of the squad when he was here.

Hopefully he has a productive career whatever league he ends up playing for.

Yet we are currently paying our starting and backup QB 42 million total with not so favorable results. Please enlighten me?

I am happy for Phillip as he has found his niche. It seems like he has been with our practice squad for 10 years lmao 

he was drafted in 2017 he is good better then brain check down hoyer. rather resign him and have him and chad kelly battle it out for the number 2 spot . we have 3 QBs now i rather have walker as the 3rd QB over hoyer who has been in the league for 10 years and is horrible .  at least walker is 24 and can improve hoyer is at his peak and is horrible .

the XFL favors running QBs over pocket passers, i think he just fits in better there

how does the xfl favor running QBs   

its not about the rules but from what i watched, qbs that can run are the ones that did well.  this wont be a high flying passing league imo it will be a running league where they throw for like 220 a game

 

i dont expect huge rushing yards from qbs but they were on the move a lot, not really sitting in the pocket.  there were also more scripted qb runs than you see in the nfl

PJ Walker did get the XFL Star player of the week!  I think his style of play works real well in the XFL, but no sure he would do as well with the NFL.  I know he's shorter than 6' and I think a QB needs to be 6'2" or taller.  I do see some other players with Indiana ties too, Reece Horn that went to Cathedral and U of I college.

I enjoyed watching a couple of XFL games.  The success of the league is going to come down to QB play.  Not that there has to be future NFL talent at QB but the guys have to be able to play well within the league.  Walker did that in his first game where his ball patting is not going to hurt him as much because the defenders are not as good.  He's also paired with a good coach for the XFL in June Jones.

Maybe the difference between the old and new XFL is there is no stupid accessories attached like the first try i.e., "HE HATE ME" 

Yeah. Names on jerseys is the reason

Jacoby was at the game yesterday and said he wouldn't fit in with the XFL since there are too many microphones around and he cusses too much!  He was there to support PJ Walker..plus they are saying that PJ just may be the MVP of the league if he continues on doing what he does.  I am having so much fun watching these games!!

The games are pretty good.  Not as good as the NFL, but better than most college games.   I've enjoyed it.   Walker doing so well makes it obvious how inferior the league is though.  

 

I wonder how many XFL players get signed by NFL teams?

Yea Myles, it's a good void for football, but I also was a big arena football fan too.  I would guess that maybe 8 players out of the league could get an interest from the NFL.  I think there's some really good players in the XFL but my hubby says it's not the high level of the NFL.  If I were looking for some players, I would definately check out some of these players.

I enjoy watching the XFL games. Walker's team, Houston Roughnecks, is undefeated. I read that the Seahawks were scouting Walker recently, might be interested in signing him as backup to Russell Wilson. Have to see if that actually happens.

    • No Fountain yesterday because of how deep we are at the position. 
    • Keeps the D fresh, limits the amount of plays the other team has, typically when the time of possession is that dominant the field position game is also won (i.e., even if we're not scoring a TD every drive, if we're moving down the field effectively it's not like we're typically going to be punting from inside our own 20 every time).     A few things to 'Flus' credit -- (1) he had several key new additions who he had never really seen in a live game playing week 1, (2) Rivers threw a couple of very costly and untimely picks which not only killed momentum as the team as a whole (so did the failed 4th down conversion and missed FG) but also left our D with bad field position, (3) the Jags probably really are not as bad as advertised... that said, we should never see a QB complete 19-20 passes.  'Flus improved his game plan in week 2, but he also didn't have the O shooting the D in the foot near as much.     Yes, the time difference and possession limitation are huge... and I get what you're saying with sometimes seeing the opposing O picking up junk yards.... however, when our O is also scoring and helping the STs win the field position battle, it makes the opposing O more one-dimensional and therefore makes our D gameplan simpler.  For example, Freeney was terrible against the rush but he was a terrific pass rusher... more often than not during the Peyton era the Colts were playing with a lead, which forces teams to become reliant on the passing game with their offense, therefore allowing the pass rushers to pin their ears back and go full speed at the QB..  in games where we were playing tight games or from behind, teams could run at Freeney basically at will, when we were playing with a lead they would abandon their run game and Freeney could focus almost solely on getting to the QB.   Cousins did not have a good game yesterday, and our D did play well.. we sacked him 3 times and knocked him down 7 times.  It seems like we can hit the other QB with our front 4 based on weeks 1 and 2.  If we can continue playing with leads, I expect our pass rush will put up better numbers and in turn result in more turnovers, etc..
    • Love how at the end of alot of JT runs big Q was there to pick him up . Nelson is a special player in many regards.
    • Yeah, like Garcon, throw it waist level and you might have more incompletions, it is going to be tough for a tall guy like MAC. But throw it at helmet or higher level, he will go up and get it like the former basketball player that he is. Antonio Gates however would have caught the one that hit him in the numbers. I was always peeved at why they wouldn't use him more in the passing game. If you believe you have a stellar OL and believe you don't need to help your OL with a 2nd TE at the LOS, just chip with your RB and use the 2nd TE in the passing game more often.
    • Right...if the NYJ are able to move the ball and score...that will be bad news. I just can’t see that happening with the weapons (or lack there of) that they have.
