Dynasty Rankings! On today’s episode Pride and Q react to the third week of the XFL, in what was an exciting week of great football.

Week 3 in the XFL is fast approaching, and whilst there wasn’t as much hype behind Week 2 as it’s debut run, it’s still fun football and the rest of the season should be just as fun to watch. This Sunday, February 23rd, the St. Louis Battle Hawks are squaring off against the New York Guardians in East Rutherford, let’s take a deep dive into it!
Thursday, April 23rd, 2020. The NFL draft will be kicking off in 2 months. Free agency is great but I’ve always felt that the draft is when the new NFL season starts ramping up. Whether its a highly-ranked prospect being everything you hoped, getting a stud in the 5th round, or finding gold in a UDFA, the draft can fill you with hope about your team’s potential for the upcoming season. With only one pick before the 5th round, do the 49ers select a WR?
Make a move! On today’s episode Pride and Q discuss and preview the third week of the XFL, discussing some of the biggest story-lines from around the league and give predictions for who will win the games. After that we then jump into the news and notes from around the NFL, finally we end the show with our 3 biggest trade for and trade away targets in fantasy football.
One of the biggest questions asked by football fans during the NFL off-season is, “where is that guy going to sign?” This question is asked for several reasons. Fans may want a star to come to sign with their favorite team, or they may not want their team throwing money at washed up veterans (still wishing the Lions hadn’t signed LeGarrette Blount a few years ago, ugh).
The Tennessee Titans had a hell of a run this past season, but now it’s time to turn their attention to the draft. After going (9-7) in the regular season and losing in the AFC Championship game, the Titans organization will dive in and see what players can help improve an already talented Titans squad.
Even though nestled far into its own little corner of the Pacific Northwest, far and away from much of the nation, Seattle is a city known for many things – Starbucks, grunge rock, salmon-throwing (?!) and all of the tech startups this side of Silicon Valley, Seattle takes one thing VERY seriously. Football. So, it only makes sense that there should be an XFL team in the Emerald City. And if you’re anything that resembles a ‘Hawks fan, it would only make sense that their first win of the season would come in a game decided by one score.
This or That?! On today’s episode Big Man Mike makes his long awaited return to the team and we have a great episode today! We give our reactions to the second week of the XFL highlighting some of the funniest moments to some of the most impressive moments. We then jump into this or that for dynasty fantasy football. We go through 8 different matchups where we have to pick one player over another player and then give analysis on why we chose that player!
Tristan Wirfs, a 6’5 322 lbs junior out of Iowa is not the most athletic draft prospect, that’s Jedrick Wills, not the most physically gifted or pro-ready, that’s Andrew Thomas, but he’s perhaps the most technically sound offensive lineman. As mentioned in a previous article, tackle duo of Mike Remmers and Nate Solder that allowed more combined pressures than any pair in the NFL, for the Giants. Both side of the trenches need to be addressed this off season, in the draft and free agency and unless Chase Young falls (unlikely) or the Giants move up (even more unlikely, there’s early reports their moving down with a quarterback needy team), they’re better off getting value drafting offensive-line early in the draft. Let’s discuss an early riser, the Iowa product, Tristan Wirfs.
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.
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.
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”.
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.
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.
