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?

Go to the COLLEGE FOOTBALL AND ALL OTHER SPORTS...there's some discussion about the XFL on there.  I'm loving it so far.

Why did I watch there games when I laughed and mocked the idea of this league? Can't say but I enjoyed all the games and especially Houston beating LA. Hope it survives.

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   basically same exact rules .  just the play clock clock is shorter and kick offs are different .

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.

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"

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.

You sure do have the art of understanding posts to a all time low.

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.

Looks like the XFL is done for this year because of the Corona Virus also.  Darn!

    • we didnt do so good against the jags last season
    • "Having a different perspective" = "changing your mind", which you do all the time.  Anyone that's been on this site for the last two years is aware of this.   Your posting history proves this.  You've changed your take multiple times in the same page of one thread...  more than once...  It's fine, but as often as you post, you need to own it.   Depending on the most recent tweet/article/talk-show-take, you change your mind as fast as some NFL players run the 40-yd-dash... just sayin...  
    • I haven’t changed my mind of anything. Sometimes when you look back on things you can have a different perspective. Changing my mind no.
    • Exactly.   Coaches are going to play it close-to-the-vest because that's what has worked.  From Lombardi, to Noll, to Walsh, to Jimmy Johnson, to Belichick, to any coach coaching today.  They're going to "play the game" with what they say, because that's how it has to be played.   You can call it "easy" or "lazy", but ask yourself this:  no coach has had as much success as Belichick has had over the last two decades... as in, like EVER.  No coach has won 6 s.  Yet, he still spits the same media-friendly (un-friendly depending on your stance) rhetoric... WHY?  Why doesn't Belichick just start speaking his mind the way you think he should?  He's earned the right, right?   It's because calling things "honestly" to the media just doesn't work.  Ask any successful athlete or coach in any major sport.  You speak differently to the media than you do to your teammates.  We're not privileged enough to hear those words because we're not part of the team.  Simple as that.
