There are quite a few teams that will be looking for some help in the backfield during the off-season. Teams that are rebuilding or that will be looking to add depth at a vital position for success will get their first shot at free agents until the draft in April. How aggressive will teams be in pursuing the players that they want, and who is willing to wait around for the best value?
The XFL was cool this weekend. I loved the fresh rules but more importantly the faster pace and more open style. There’s also serious talent in the league and potential stars. As the XFL grows we’re gonna bring you all the content that comes with it, it’s more football after all! Starting off with a preview of the Battle-Hawks/Guardians game coming up, i’ll take you through the teams, the matchups, some fantasy implications and also some betting discussion.
Quarterback Phillip “P.J.” Walker showed out in Week 1 for the Houston Roughnecks. The gunslinger was deadly accurate, firing off 23-for-39 for 298 total yards (272 passing) and four touchdowns in the home opener versus the LA Wildcats.
I’ve highlighted the top 4 unrestricted free agents that would be worth Seattle’s money to bring back. One or two of these players, if resigned, would help the team moving forward.
A week of XFL action has finally passed, so now we kind of have a basis for how the teams can perform and thus can start judging them. Thus here are the team power rankings going into week 2.
Mock draft season! We have a great show for you today, we start things off by discussing how the Los Angeles Chargers went about letting Phillip Rivers go in free agency and then we get into week 2 of the XFL. We discuss keys to each game and we give predictions on who we think will win this weekend. After that we participate in a 12 team .5ppr dynasty startup mock draft. Q picks from the third position and Pride picks from the 10th position and each try to build a roster that will be dominant for many years to come!
It all starts at the top, and the tip of this iceberg is Martha Ford. While she doesn’t actually make decisions when it comes to gameday, she is one of the 3 heads because she empowers this front office and has refused to make changes. Like many of our brethren before us have said, “SELL THE TEAM”.
There hasn’t been much happening with the Minnesota Vikings offseason just yet. They lost OC Kevin Stefanski to the Cleveland Browns and promoted Head Coach Assistant Gary Kubiak to the OC job. Besides that, there hasn’t been much change, but that doesn’t mean big changes aren’t on its way. There is much Speculation in Minnesota this offseason.
The XFL IS BACK! We had a ton of fun watching the XFL this past weekend and in this episode we give you our reactions and thoughts on the first week of XFL football and some thoughts for what the NFL could implement into the game that the XFL is going correct. We then jump into the news and notes and catch you up on all the biggest story lines of the offseason so far. We end the show by opening up the mailbag and answering your questions!
GM John Schneider is no stranger to making big acquisitions via free agency. His works include the signings of Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, Jimmy Graham and a bevy of others that have contributed to the Seahawks in a major way. With an estimated 50.7M in cap space, and a roster full of immediate needs, one would like the chances of Schneider making a go at another splash signing this off-season. The Seahawks have already proven that they were just a play or two away from competing for it all, or at the very least, came within inches of shaking up the entire NFC Playoff picture against their division rivals, the San Francisco 49ers. As we all now know, the 49ers went on to play Super Bowl LIV.
There are quite a few teams that will be looking for some help in the backfield during the off-season. Teams that are rebuilding or that will be looking to add depth at a vital position for success will get their first shot at free agents until the draft in April. How aggressive will teams be in pursuing the players that they want, and who is willing to wait around for the beat value?
Among such teams, the Seattle Seahawks seemed to enjoy a bit of a “surprise” season, as many in the media have coined it, with many experts (and pundits alike) still viewing Seattle as being in its rebuilding years. Just don’t tell that Pete Carroll and John Schneider. The head coach and GM super-tandem have been at this for a decade now, compiling an impressive regular-season record of 100-59. What’s even more impressive is the team’s 8-4 record in the post-season in that same span, including 2 Super Bowl appearances and 1 Super Bowl win, Seattle’s first-ever NFL title. Earlier success of the team in the last decade was clearly due to one of the most imposing defenses in the history of football – the Legion of Boom.
There are quite a few teams that will be looking for some help in the backfield during the off-season. Teams that are rebuilding or that will be looking to add depth at a vital position for success will get their first shot at free agents until the draft in April. The RB pool in the free-agent market is filled with lots of experience and different types of players. Where might some of these players end up?
This 6’1 201 lbs safety is a highly-coveted prospect for two main reasons. One, his size and two, the fact that the safety position is at a premium, besides himself and Xavier McKinney (who could get his own write-up in the near future), not a lot of impact players are coming out at this position in 2020. Delpit is next in the line of elite defensive backs that have come out of LSU, appropriately dubbed “Defensive Back University” or “DBU”, featuring stand outs in the NFL such as Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Jamal Adams and Donte Jackson. Grant Delpit could make a wonderfully big, fast and intense addition to Big Blue.
The XFL IS HERE! On today’s episode Pride and X discuss week one of the XFL season and discuss all the rule changes that the XFL has adopted compared to the NFL. We discuss how we think the league will play and our hopes for the leagues success! We then get back into our FACTS series, where we go through quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends and give the FACTS on their season and what their season actually looked like not just the end result showing where they finished. Today Pride and Q discuss the FACTS for tight ends starting with the tight end one’s for the 2019 fantasy football season. We discuss which tight ends actually helped your team and which ones hurt your team. We also talk about how a tight end finishing in the top 12 does not mean you should draft them like that in 2020.
One thing is for certain, 2020 will be make or break for B.O.B. the GM. Anything less than a trip to the AFC championship game would be considered a huge disappointment for the franchise, and there would be no one left to place the blame on but Bill O’Brien
