you my sign in the background.
What? Right when you're in the create, whatever it is I can't entirely when I see your street.
I think, Uh, all right.
I love a nice love.
That middle three underscored, uh, Uncle Jesse and I suite shared it for mine.
We'll share it from breakdown.
So we're getting it from the river.
Yeah. All right.
You very nearly three times having, are you? What? Watching your stream? I am.
That might be why? Well, um, let's have one of the guys and see if they can hear.
Uh, All right, Mr DeAngelis is going to check our audio brah.
Let us know if there's a reverb.
Not if you're hearing River for hearing anything being group.
Just make sure everyone we're standing.
Let's say, ah, someone's in here.
Say, be hearing a multiple times.
Does it sound like ****, doesn't it, Danny? Stress? Is there reverb? All right, Breakfast.
Let's go ahead and we're gonna kick it off.
Uh, we're kicking off Episode one of under the excess plan.
You came up XFL woman Okay.
We're reporting Episode one of Under the XFL, which is gonna be a podcast brought to you by the breakdown sports featuring myself, Jordan a k.
Gordon von Denham way of Uncle Jack.
Right in the middle of week, we're gonna break down the previous week of XFL commentary on what we think, the league, what we're seeing, I'm looked ahead to next week and hopefully have I'm before they do.
I mean, to my, um, and I'll about myself breakdown and I'll get right into the great.
All right, what's going on, everybody? I'm Jesse.
Right over breakdown.
Mostly college were born in over, absolutely diving into.
Ah, he accepted.
I'll try to take the lead for that.
It's been pretty good for all right.
So I don't know what just happened over cause it is.
It went very back to the home screen.
I can still hear you.
And I think it's a lot guard.
I just can't see nothing on screens.
Uh, I'm walking back into here.
This one is still tuning in.
We're having a little technical here.
Just bear with us one on, uh, any I source one.
Yes, Ah, Looks like we know it's a lot.
Well, see how amazing? Um, so we can go ahead and keep it on rolling.
You Ah, you have been dabbling.
And he did and valued at college football.
You are You are the fun guy.
Uh, on over here.
I started the brake on sport.
I do a lot of ****ytical things.
Ah, think a lot with that, Um, that is one of things we're really looking at with XFL.
So that's when the fun things we have here with my congestive, where I look at things rather ****ytically.
She looked at things from the er the road thing with Battle Hawk fan.
So every week we're gonna be bringing this to you.
You want out on Twitter? There will be sure to give you some reaction there and just see what type of cool a little podcast experiment we can get.
So, without further delay, let's jump into some action.
We'll go ahead with week three recap what we saw in the field this weekend and then we'll go.
There is every week well deserved.
After all, we've been through.
Is that why I'm not drinking in public shelters? This didn't take us quite some time to get up and running.
I think we have been able to enjoy their Bud Light shelters in the bubbly Help the Lounge following it.
A nice, refreshing victory stuff past week.
First game that we had going down Tampa Bay.
Big news out of Tampa, Tampa Bay going into this game that they were without their tight end Nick Pastel, as well as starting quarterback Aaron Murray.
Um, the Vipers end up going down often.
This is the first time their offense actually touched down after. That was pretty good today.
They didn't look totally incompetent.
Oh, the Vipers having what are your thoughts on this point? Jeff? Yeah, you said I was very busy Love labor sore because there probably looked forward constantly.
Yeah, great, because the thing that I liked about Tampa, um, is that with their coaching staff, Trestman coming from the CFL he had played.
He wasn't into the cookie cutter box of NFL award in college football, playing in that he had some CFL experience.
He did coach very briefly with the base pairs in the NFL.
I think that I thought that his roommate of being involved with CFL would translate pretty well.
I'll in to the exit, played as poorly as Aaron Murray did poorly.
Ad Hailer Montrose What's his last name? The backup on Temple name.
Neither of them are doing very good, wouldn't it? The quarterback play.
You're stuck with your better seabirds.
A tight end quality running back side.
I suppose that could be from the SUV pace, but moving on Ed, I take a look at the second gate had this past weekend.
Also the game thing, too.
Dragon, um, renegades end up taking this 1 to 4 to 12 over home team.
Uh, they covered and one outright.
That was a sissy.
If you are a fan of the renegades, they bought Stoop 10 or even a lander. Jonestown.
This was a decent gay.
Actually, it was pretty close until what? That third quarter.
That guy had two consecutive after back sounds on Dallas.
Before that, Seattle was keeping a close eye.
Seattle had recently family personal issues at home, so Jim Dorn took over play calling and he's calling a E offense.
He's never called before, so that was interesting to see even more of another.
Finally doing the double pass after throwing it, getting deflected, catching it and throwing it again for a decent gain.
That's all I remember.
Yeah. No, that was good.
And then you have the broadcasters who had no ****ing clue what was going on.
Um, seven game meant he was on the call for and that's really when he started to catch a lot of black, I really quickly pulled up a weather.
Just see, what are people talking about in the game and everyone is incremental.
It doesn't cross the line of scrimmage like knocking them for reviewing play.
He wasn't really under involved.
Might be a bit of an issue there.
Yeah, mercifully, it's a lot of the older, out of touch around that's not keeping up with these little think.
It's like 19 eighties.
I can agree with that.
Yeah, I really like the rules if I'm being totally honest, but we could get a bit more into that in a second.
Let's go ahead and let's crank up through the Sunday Games.
Uh, so the Sunday A early game on Sunday.
PM was your battle hawks? Uh, defending their home turf against the New York Guardians.
Dad Locks took this 1 29 to 9.
I'm just going to run with First off, it was nice seeing you home football games since their aims, the crowd really slept at heart with all the booing of staying crunk e and laying it on him throughout the game.
That the best way to put it? Um, yeah, they dominated from the start.
Really? You have.
They got the first ever returned for a touchdown and league history with the beautiful reverse.
What? I never thought you would.
You could do that with this new kick off.
Completely surprised me.
But are that the best parts of this game? We're the one with the defense alignment organs alive, and he traded the vocal over back in 10 minutes.
That was, uh, Jordan.
Tom knew is putting on a great season at Pinky leads easier.
Second, release the leak in passing yards after this week, which is very and surprising, but it was just all no dominant win.
I really hope what happened when you play and Matt McGloin.
Yeah, Madman Goran isn't doing it, man.
He he needed to do more than just throw the playbook out.
I need to throw a football career out.
Maybe he should see if Landry Jones job in the construction industry is still available.
I think Mama Gwen would have better luck.
Um, taking that route, that continuing to be a professional football player in the exit get hurt.
This games of long term is but Luis Prez, the famous ah a f ew to quarterback.
Um, if you are a, uh, New York guardian, Stan, um, there is possibly a light at the end of the tunnel, so if you're just just give up is the point.
Yeah, um, I'll get a little bit more into my power ratings where I have each team lined out a little bit further in this episode, but yeah, you're kind of alluding to it. I don't have them very high.
I don't think anyone does, but we can get into that a little bit in greater detail.
Um, second game on Sunday, this was the real shocker.
We had, uh, Ellie Wildcats, who had looked hapless the 1st 2 weeks of the season at home against the D C.
Defenders who looked like world beaters possibly looked like they could have held ground in the NFL.
Ends up beating them 39 to 9.
They caused five fumbles.
They have four sacks and D c couldn't do anything.
Um, this was shocking.
I had it on in the beginning, and very quickly I ended up turning off the game because there just wasn't going on anything on.
I was really surprised about it.
What were your papa? No, I was taking that.
I was all set up entering this week.
That's gonna be Houston.
Did you see in the championship? Because granite within two weeks? Or they're the only undefeated teens P. J. Walker.
He's in looking like the M V P easily.
Earlier, one Cardo Jones was working says good.
Well, not better, but this is good for D. C.
That's probably the past in the league, ever.
Well, they have really like two interceptions a game.
At least that just really surprised me.
I'm not sure if that's, uh, travel blow.
Getting opens it by going from sleazy to L. A.
But the worst thing about this game is how this is probably the biggest rout of the year.
And there was no fans in the studio Who's that not attend the game out of all dozen here.
Really, This was the lowest attended game.
I don't know that 19,000 people.
Yeah, I mean, so the D C defenders, obviously, they had a shoes.
I It was most on the offensive side.
They couldn't get the ball downfield, their yards per play with under five yards.
If you are really moving the ball for yards every play, you're probably not going to do great.
You're gonna have a hard time getting first downs, which was their issue when it got to third down.
They were two for 13.
They completed 15% their third downs and there one for three on fourth down.
So it was in opportunities that in weeks after d.
Was so good at converting, um, they suddenly couldn't convert third down against the defense.
That if you had asked me before Week three, what's the worst defense in the league? And it wasn't even close, you know, they were pitiful, like every other startup team.
Los Angeles e even know where you're going.
About what I put on this in Dark Harbor tonight Road Yet tomorrow about my weekly loss stop because there's rumors that extension stop running seems in big markets cities.
Nobody want their wants to watch him.
A 10 team for abuse worse, and it's I like the XFL is minor league baseball for football pants.
You're not in a go and, uh, l a Chicago to seize nice little startup league.
You're gonna want to go to Indianapolis or Colorado.
So where were? There's nothing else to do.
And it's a cheap $20 Dave entertain there.
They really feel that stadium, an NFL size stadium, just wrecked.
I mean, I told you the only team in the major market that I mean d c.
They're playing in a soccer stadium, so that is working for them.
It's not like they're playing in the Coliseum.
Um, easy also has the insider leading their other football team, so they have not.
Yeah, I didn't even think of that one.
Um, Seattle's doing well.
But Seattle, they are always been high in attendant.
Whether they're you know, you're right.
They don't have anything going on this time of year.
So it's a dead time between NFL on baseball.
They got, like, three months of downtown Seahawk China getting past January for the foreseeable future.
All right, that about puts a bow on the, uh, games from Week three.
Any performances from anyone really stick out or What was it like? We talked about the Wildcats surprising us.
Um, anything else that really stuck out to you as a shocker? Um, this week, P. J.
Walker's running away with every offense level word.
A word in general.
He's easily the best player in s a story now and it, but cities along that 63% completion 748 10 touchdowns.
The one reception.
Okay, but 480 yards on Saturday.
Andy, He looks like a division one quarterback in high school kids.
He really does do their running backs even have a touchdown.
Um, this here because I know I know he has at least one possibly two rushing touchdown is for he had one this week.
All right, so I mean a real quick in the XFL.
Make the super easy.
Alright. Week three.
He had one rushing touchdown.
None of their running next week.
They had one Butler ran one in, so they they had.
But I know they didn't have one in Week one.
So they've had one rushing touchdown from someone not named PJ Walker.
And, yeah, he's lighting up legal.
He is almost it's side from Silvers.
He has two times as many touchdown to any other Q B in league Um, anyone.
He's not turning the ball over a lot because that was the thing that I really liked about Cardell Jones going into this week.
Um, here, listen to May liking Cardell Jones.
Um, he he wasn't turning the ball over.
I mean, he was doing fairly well.
He's keeping controlled.
He wasn't stretching the field too much.
He had some big plays to Rashad Roth in week one.
Then we, too, but he wasn't really getting out of control.
Whether there wasn't a lot of the issues we had seen in the abbreviated NFL career, he admitted time in colleges well but he had four interceptions this past week.
So that is not what you're looking to.
D'oh! Um, if you're looking to maintain mint maintain atop the rankings, um, in they start up football league.
The other thing that really surprised me is that Tampa scored.
Maybe they gored.
They were one play away last week.
Yeah, Receiver didn't push off.
Oh, going to overtime? Yeah.
Yeah, they had some bad luck on weeks prior, which is why wasn't, like, super down on them.
I still think that they could be maybe a 500 win team, although going down the 1st 3 weeks with losses is going to make that very challenging.
But I don't think that they will be the worst team in the league.
Um, overall, what do you work? Yeah, exactly.
That is their title.
Um, what do you thought in the league? Um what do you like? What don't you like? Um, yeah, obviously, as you can sell, All right? For exit, though we do, except go daily fantasy that we're not recording an acceptable podcast where I were unacceptable year.
I'm all then Oh, yes, currency.
I was always on a F last year.
The IRC through your fan, but it this feels different.
Then we're back to this Will Grant.
It's more organized and wasn't a front for a gambling at players.
They're getting paid players into you.
Then I came in at the airport or whatever, but thank you.
Been sick name for doing right once again.
But it feels right.
Yeah, all the new rules are perfect.
There's no reason about these Players have to have TV in bounds.
There's a reason why the clock should run on stop in the NFL.
The kickoff is right.
We best rule there is decides shelling to the replays and reviews and getting it done in 30 seconds.
Yeah, if this might last part, we three years to get on it, it'll be like you're in a leak.
Come back, it'll fall off, it'll come back.
But the NFL is that will be taking rules from this certain, like, two years now.
What do you think? The first thing the NFL's gonna look to try and induct you think it's gonna be something like the kickoff rule? Or do you think it will be something smaller like, um what they're doing with replays about how there there's not there isn't a set time.
Um, from the league being blood Blandino he had said that they're allowed, like, one minute, But there wasn't like a timer like there wasn't gonna be a bother going off, um, in the stadium and all the fans.
We're gonna get free hot dogs.
Um, if the call took a minute and 30 seconds, he just said that they told the officials about a minute.
Do you think that will get a sweeping, like play rule like the XFL? That would change for NFL.
Where do you think it would be officiating our something along those lines? Well, replay moves, grooming the last rule because there's too much going on for them to try toe change that it is either gonna be awful or the point after war.
I can see them taking the 123 That would be fun printed out of the nude extra point back.
It's not as if you give me, but everybody knows five minutes toe, do you? Because it's commercial.
Excellent commercial, kickball commercial.
It's probably, you know, the kickoff or because they want to get rid of all the concussions.
But your energy I love blood.
The except Hell did with, um it made it so much more interesting just watching them, um, stand 10 yards across from each other and just charge at each other Once that receiver catches the ball is so much fun.
End Any time a player gets out past, like the 30 I'm losing my ****ing mind.
I'm up off. Michael.
When I saw that reverse play, um, would ST Louis even though I wanted ST Louis to not do so well because that may or may not have bet against them.
Um, I was, like, holy site.
And watching that you said I knew glue that well, you could d'oh! And then and in the n f o you have currently we could have a Kylie in the end and try to hide Andy the crew back past like, yeah, this is way more entertaining than trying to do that.
Drop it with the kicking team to level three yard line.
Um, yeah, I have similar thoughts on the league.
I'm really enjoying it for me.
Um, give me an opportunity to really dive in two more football, Uh, continue to work on my handicapping field were to my ****ytical skills.
Um, and also just more football.
Um, I'm really enjoying that.
We're seeing We should start to see more creative play Caller, I think, as the a lot more balance.
Um, but we still had hired corn game eyes working.
Um, I certainly enjoy it.
As I mentioned before the one issues I, um, like, not brought up.
I think it is being someone like Cardell Jones look like they could be on an NFL team after just blowing up the 1st 2 and having such strong performances.
Walker like what happened when PJ welcome back down there the least Very well.
But if they have bad games and, like bull****, any of these quarterbacks can just have absolutely thinking of games.
That something that has to be done about the Body league.
I love how they show on the sidelines, talking the place, talking to coaches.
I also think the transparency of, like the league itself what they're doing with that.
All of these injury reports team, which is a effectively a practice squad for one, so that way.
There are game ready players in the event that starting cornerback on a team goes down.
They could bring in another defensive back from teeth. Nine.
I think that's super cool. And it's super innovative.
Obviously not enough money to go around for them.
Toe all have their own squad.
I'll have, like, you know, these upstart tap.
But I think having one roster new whatever, Um, who can actually hey, right tackles goes down in Week five.
Team doesn't have to worry about going down to the local old gym and trying to find someone there.
They can just pick someone up t nine.
Yeah, and talk about how we had a slow first.
Everything just to be clear that, you know, we did have a month worth of training camp.
People were in the only practice.
A little Abel's agree all basically the person I want at least for getting Woz.
But it's just very under watch.
No, it's to see don't say gap between college in the NFL, but a place where they're on their last legs and would do.
We're gonna go hold out for that last chance for a camp come summer because you know what I mean? Didn't last very long.
He looked like the best player in the a m.
Um Then again, he's now back up in the XFL.
So what does it really say about the, um yeah, but I mean, like, players on their last leg.
Uh, while I'm stuck out to May is I was watching.
Um, I think he's on the defenders. Rogers.
I think that's what Amy plays on.
Yes, sir. He's on the defender.
I was watching defenders with, uh, two week last week, week toe where they e Steelers fan and she looking three.
And she goes, Why don't I feel like I know that? And, ah, like which one should like Rogers did he e playing the game and he was still a couple years.
She didn't look at the roster.
She looked just like that.
Hey, I think I know that guy.
That's really cool in this.
Giving players an opportunity to get campaign by two or if it is their last chance.
And the police had stories on Twitter about, uh, offshoot type league.
I can't believe the handful of years I I'm there with you about five years, right? I'm moving right along here.
All right, So yes, after this bite Seltzer ad break, it's announced that Ah, this episode and all of our car blue Bacchus is Canada's campus were brought to you by the fine.
But Tiki CG guys say many times over there is greatest Aban rule secretary.
Chicken market concert is everything.
Nobody wants to deal with the Sal from the streets to pay $200 for sent our ticket cost.
You want a dizzy the defense units.
Is that all? Sway Because they're right and Lewis various that I can't get in there.
They go on seeing everything.
It's easiest congee.
Green is good. Red is bad.
You better like we all can.
It's even if you're color blind, they have a scale.
1 to 10 sounds good time is it? I'm going to die. Peace.
Nobody wants to want one's a little longer.
You don't know this ticket for that.
The funders at Tampa Bay Fibers is 27 bucks.
Oh, this one is 57 hours, but it's green.
First double tap it, girls.
It so good thinking I didn't ask for your best user could break down.
RK do you have you? It's so many dollars off.
All right, Thanks.
That Yeah, check out her friends over Kiki.
Certainly have tickets available for the game.
Find that I'm a secondary market.
And if you are on the secondary market, please head over to Kiki.
Use promo code breakdown.
Brk Dina of u N on save on your first purchase.
Um so fun little, uh, a wood that I want to give out here.
Something that we're actually gonna laugh our viewers to vote on.
We'll have this up.
Um, from now through Saturday morning, we're gonna call the Power Movie of the Week.
Every week, Jesse and I are gonna pick two moments from the week before and how they were absolute power.
Um, there is one obvious this one, uh, this week with the baton Jesse in the battle hawks.
The other one was out in L.
Um, so the first number may for power movie of the week.
I'm going to take, uh, the L A Wildcat.
And the fact that they performed a Gatorade shower on their head coach after winning his first game is a man who fired his defensive corps.
He put up, uh, let's say I don't know.
He's put up, like maybe 12.
15 points so far.
Ah, here today? Yeah.
Toward 18 points last week.
Not having a great year looking kinda like a dummy.
Um, and this team goes out.
They love wins the mosque.
They pour Gatorade over his head after winning a single game.
The best part is that it was right on camera.
Um, you know how the sideline we'll do the interviews with the coaching and dumped in Britain with that Gatorade jeffy you want? Take number two here, remember, son finds guy's name, but I'm sorry.
I can't find it.
Oh, number is you were recent ruling the bowl champion, but seven in the locker can and drugging it something that hopefully animals and crazy people from Florida deal.
So it Yeah, we already know this is a little win.
Yeah, no matter how terrible it is, But it Yeah, for the love of football.
Um, one thing that we share this we'll have to find the clips for each because Justin Moss getting soaked in Week three of the XFL of energy and support I aspire to have in my daily life from my friends and family.
And then you add the way that that too grabbed it and ripped it right off.
Um, that's, um, good good content.
So we'll be sure to share those.
We'll have our Twitter followers.
Um, go ahead and vote on that, although it's probably going to end up in a landslide in favour of the battle hawk.
So that's a power move of the week, and we are moving on to our next segment Taken.
Look ahead at week for so weak for We got two games on Saturday, two games on Sunday, just as we have continued to see.
One thing that confuses me is that they keep bouncing around with the time slot this week.
First game is at 2 p.
A Wild Cats at the New York Guardians at time of recording this right now, The Guardians air seven point underdogs at home to the Wildcats with an over under set at 40 points, game number two on Saturday, taking place over on the Fox broadcast.
So we'll see our friend Curt Menefee again.
We have the Seattle Dragons traveling to ST Louis to take on the battle Hawks at time of recording this.
The battle Hawks or 12 point home favorite versus the Dragon on the Over under is set at 38 a half.
No, they're two games for Saturday, uh, kicking off the Sunday plate a little bit later this week.
First game is at 4 p.
m. Eastern on FX one.
We have the Houston Roughnecks at the Dallas Renegade.
Uh, Dallas Renegades are one point underdog at home to the Roughnecks, and the over under is currently set at 50 as we are seeing two of the highest scoring team in the league face all last game we have for the weekend.
The premier match up.
It'll be over on ESPN.
Um, not to be confused with ESPN Oko Ah, we have the D C defenders at Tampa Bay Vipers Game is currently listed as a pickem on Pinnacle Sports on the over under is that at 44 a half? So those are our matchups for this week on, and obviously being a betting a bit of a betting website with a bit of a betting following will certainly break down some of that, uh, little bit here with Jesse and I birthing will go through.
We're going to go through the first game, just the headlines that we see associated with each of these games.
You kind of give me your thoughts on that.
Jesse, Um, if there's anything that interests you or anything in particular about these games and then I'll give a little bit of an ****ytical breakdown.
So first game, as I mentioned, is the L A Wildcat at the New York Guardians.
The big news with this one is that Wilson Spruce Wilson at first.
Nate, Nate, Nathan Nelson.
Something starts with an aunt.
Hey, is actually their highest targeted wide receiver.
I think he might be the highest targeted wide receiver in the lease.
So that is some pretty big news coming out of L.
Especially after they captured their first victory.
What you thought from this game, this is the, uh yeah, It's thing to put on for your Saturday nap after even day drinking all morning.
So no one wants to see these.
Yeah, this is probably gonna be if I would have bet which game has the lowest viewership on TV and in attendance for the week? Uh, this is the easy pens.
You have to You have two teams that no one knows what they are.
I think they're both wanted to do.
I don't have a whole lot of excitement about this game myself.
Obviously, even looking at things from an ****ytical angle, Um, I have the guardians who are literally my worst team in my power eating, um, taking on the l A.
Wild cats who are like the third worst team.
So it's not like we're faced with being two titans.
Take the face off here.
I do have the, uh, spread projected a bit lower.
It's currently a seven point spread with the guardians of seven point underdogs.
I like four and 1/2 40.3 now.
They felt some injury news.
I want to look out later in the week, um, and also to see if they need to make any manual adjustments to my numbers.
But right now, I was getting seven point.
Um, I would probably take the New York guardians.
Who knows that the Wildcats can string together two consecutive weeks, but the same time? Do I really want to put any money that I've earned on the New York Guardians and Matt McGloin or Luis Perez or whoever they have suiting up? Probably not, Um, so did need a little bit more time to dive into that one.
Um, with two pretty ugly teams facing off against each other.
The 2nd 1 we have here, we have, uh, Seattle Dragons at ST Louis Battle.
Hawkes, Your battle hooks, um, are in ST Louis legit.
That's the first question I have about this game.
And then on the Seattle side of things can this often score more points, As I mentioned last week was Jim Zorn's first week calling place for the offense.
Jim Zorn, through his coaching career as a Q B coach, and I think he had a very brief stint as a offensive coordinator, was always the West Coast football type of offense.
Stephen what he played in when he was a player.
And now he's, uh, coaching an offense that is not a West Coast often.
So, Uncle Jesse, what do you thought from this game? Well, yes, ST Louis is legit.
There are a lot of surprise that they're currently the favorite, for we're batting favorite for a championship already there.
I don't know how they're at minus 2 54 50 or whatever.
Tom is really exceeded my expectations.
I hated the guy with the passion because he's called the starting spot from today.
I really didn't Ah, flying Hawaiian out there.
But they're great.
They have second school regularly, consistently one of the best running back in the league.
And Christine, Michael and Matt Jones, who had missed the first weekend.
Come on, throw the last they're insane was which they're gonna be the best some people have handed by far because they have nothing so floored by likes the Cardinals anymore.
It's no, no, they're just set.
Just destroy this week.
That's right. Yeah.
No, I I think that you are pretty spot on with that one.
Um, as you mentioned, they are the betting favorites for the XFL championship.
Right now, they're plus 2 25 to take on the championship.
And that's after they looked awful.
I mean, week one, they look really strong, weak too.
They mounted a big comeback and almost won outright and the Roughnecks on.
And then week three, they dominated.
So I think they certainly reason to put them towards the top of the league.
I think it is a little bit of overreaction, which I think even you, uh, sort of agree with.
I think that they're one of the best teams.
I have them right now ranked as my second or third best team.
I kind of have them Dallas kind of neck and neck.
I have Houston as my best team in the league, so I think that the Battle Hawks are a great team.
And on the other hand, I have the Seattle Dragon as my second worst team, the only team who I have worked in the Dragon in the Guardian.
So I have this team projected as a 10 point spread again.
Injury news could change that, But if this were to go up to two touchdown, I think that I was.
If it's like battle hawks and minus 14 at that point, I gotta take the dragon.
Um, I think that the battle Hawks are often they are actually the most efficient team in the league right now, which kind of shocked me when I tried out my numbers because they were.
They were super run heavy and weak, someone into.
But the run heaviness does not mean that a team cannot be efficient.
And I think they're proving that they are mixing up play calling.
They are almost even in past to run call.
You never know what they're gonna call, and they're doing well.
So I'm with you.
I liked about the Hawks.
I think that they will rout the Dragons in this one.
But like I said, if it gets up to two touchdowns, you're giving me 14 point on a spread.
I'm going to take the underdog in a league where there are only 18.
So I take four dragons that battle Hawks crews all along to Sunday heading over to, uh, some warmer weather down in Dallas.
We of the Houston Roughnecks at the Dallas Renegades.
Ah, the headlines for me on this game.
Can Houston stand defeated or can Bob Stoops showed that coaching matters in the XFL and Landry Jones continue to put that Ah, positive momentum he's shown on in.
He played really well in the fourth quarter of Week two, and then he played extremely well for almost all of this game.
Where we going with that one? What are your thoughts on this game? Houston and Dallas? I'm leaning towards Houston, has the straight up in spread waas, but it's for Landry Jones.
I get him something because last week closes first week, playing in this week one.
So now that he has no weak game action under his belt, you can probably figure it out and do a little better.
But by one, I'm gonna steal ****ytical police from you on.
If you know this, Houston is the only team where their games that they would be over everyone.
But I mean to make that waited.
They're so funny.
Things about the Houston D team is you think that they're putting up so many points there on the field the whole time That controlling the ball, they're controlling momentum? No, they have run the least amount of offensive plays in the league.
Uh, other than a team named the New York Guardian.
They have the second least plays, but they have the most points in the league by 25 points.
Second place is the battle hawks, um, in the Wildcat, right behind them, like they're putting up points and they're doing it without barely controlling the ball.
And when they do control the ball, they are still scoring at, Well, um, it's hard to look past the Roughnecks right now.
I have this game projected as a pick.
Um, I think I actually have a Dallas minus one, given a small home field advantage again, with injuries are manual adjustments.
As I look more into box scores this week, that number could change.
I wouldn't want to bet against Houston, especially if you're getting them as a slight favorite.
Like I said, right now, it is minus one.
I'd take that and you're basically taking them on the Moneyline at that point.
So I like Houston.
I think that they're the most complete team, the league.
I have them rated as my number one team, and it's not the Dallas bat.
Ellis is a 2nd may be the very best team in the league.
It's just that I think Houston right now is Ah yeah, then that their neck above the roughneck, their neck above the rest of the league.
This one last favor? Yeah.
Over set at 50 points right now.
Um, I would absolutely take that over.
Um, if you have the Roughnecks put up 30 points like they seem to do every week.
And Dallas can put up 2050 You know, anywhere from 18 to 20.
I think this is cruising over.
Um, if Dallas can have a, um how mom type offense when they're moving the ball at? Well, they're passing incessantly.
I think that we could see a high scoring game.
We could break into the sixties by the time we're halfway through the fourth quarter.
So I like that play.
I certainly would take the over at this time.
I'm probably leaning towards Houston as well.
Final game of the week.
Uh, even warmer on.
Ah, we have the sea defenders traveling to Tampa Bay to take on the vipers.
Um, right now, this game is a pic, so you can take either side on this one here.
The headlines that I have for this week was last week a fluke for, um, for D.
Do we think that them having such a poor performance was a fluke.
Or do you think that Cardale Jones really getting lucky? Um, they were strike when the iron was hot in weeks one and two.
And now we're actually starting to see a little bit more realistic of what to expect.
Do you think it was a bad travel spot? You mentioned it because this is a case of the team.
Flew out to lay they, didn't you? No.
Curfew is messed up.
Things like that, um or do we think this? And do we think this is an opportunity for Tampa toe pick up their first win? Although they've shown increased signs of, like life week after week from this awful take DC because even though they were terrible, that's weak.
They're still a much better team.
Always all around compared them back, um, kind of concerned about last week.
So because, yes, they did have to fly across country, but in of East.
In NFL standards, flying east to west is a lot easier than flying west to east.
You're gaining three hours, so you're not as jet lag.
I think they were just looking ahead, possibly or that car does.
Riding the high never loses a game he started in college or professionals works.
Yes, they finally scored all offensive touchdown, but last week.
But they're Quinn Torrey.
It's one of the best.
Defense is probably the second best defense.
And the big said Aaron Murray, does another shot say, Yeah, I really don't know what Tampa's gonna d'oh! Whether they have Quinn, Aaron, Murray, LeBron James, they could have whoever their quarterback.
I really don't think it's gonna matter This d c defense, they're gonna be ****ed the **** off after getting embarrassed by the L.
A Wildcat last week.
Like, utterly embarrassed, um, are thinking their defense step up.
I think that, um, Carlo Jones, we're gonna This is either gonna make a break.
If he has another terrible week, I think he's then gonna start to get into his head.
He's gonna be more worried he's gonna start to be even more conservative.
The one shot the Vipers have at this is doing exactly that, getting after the quarterback pressuring him, um, walking down that defense.
I think that's the opportunity that the Vipers have for them to then last 4/4.
They're gonna need to score some talking points I mean, I don't know how to say, Erin, whether it's Aaron Murray or who or maybe Marc Trestman should get back there, someone is gonna have to figure out how to get this often throwing.
It's not that they can't move the ball.
They move the ball no problem and said they can't put the ball into the ends up.
So if Tampa wants to win, they need to score.
It seems simple, but through the 1st 2 weeks they proved it was very difficult.
And last week again, yes, a.
Not definitely not a very strong defense in Houston.
They were able to score.
So I think that is gonna be the the ball.
If you didn't get up 14 point, who knows can buy free score 14 points to confected weeks.
I don't talking now like they could.
They could go out there.
They could kick kicked three field goals again.
Um, they could not do another offensive touchdown for the rest of the season.
Coaching staff and what they're capable of, I will say that this is make or break for Tampa.
Um, if you want to talk about pressure this coming week, losses At that point, they can't make the play offs essential.
Um, they won't be able to, uh, e if you'll make the playoffs.
You're kind of dead in the water like that.
Who knows if there is a next season like they can start to prepare for that? Who knows who will be in the league next year? If it does make it to a second season for Tampa Bay this week? Is everything have a similar performance as Week three is probably a living back? Um, I currently have this projected as, Ah, I have vipers as one a half point.
Um, that means that I would take the You're gonna slight edge there.
Um, given that the spread is currently there, that's what I got for.
Uh, if I were to make a bet on a total, uh, I would look at this game and although it's 44 a half, I wouldn't because that would be looking at the first half.
And really scored.
Even when they did score, they typically put on the wings in the second half, so I got a under 22 when that first half number is released images.
Um, total of the week.
If we're not looking at the over 50 in the Dallas and Houston other toda la beauty under for L.
A in New York because they're not going to score whatsoever.
No, I really don't.
And honestly, I think that Josh Johnson, consecutive weeks, uh, of a really strong offensive performance.
I don't totally believe he a if he was on a bigger right, that was the Mike Mark him.
He couldn't do anything.
Um, he was the number one pick a league.
Um, he had a cup of coffee with Washington at skins.
He rick couldn't do much for those who don't remember time with the Washington Redskins and no stop for ah week for you Got any other thoughts? One of these games, And not for this week, but just for the in general.
I meant to bring you up earlier, but I forgot about it until just now.
Um, if this does last to defend the background, you can t Robson He got a great interception.
Yep, on today's game, then he was He was supposed to play for West Virginia this past season.
He was all the other but deemed actor don't been eligible.
So instead of weeping next you're gonna have a longer training camp.
But still, you're not gonna be lifting working out, going through all the rigors of college football season that they probably are preparing for for eight months for every minute, not actually in the regular season.
I'm sure they are preparing in college football.
I don't think there has.
I mean that Detective Bell and I think that the wearing care nobody is going to be left.
So you think or even this if they don't have they decided not to implement an age limit like the bell has rang me, like three years from you from eyes say, another guy like Trevor.
Laurence comes lights up his freshman and sop****re year.
And since and I don't want to play a 30 year college, I want to get paid.
Now let me go footage for this random team.
The exit fell for a year show even better, the national football.
Okay, get drafted.
Number one under that or the exit, though it Hold on.
It could be a whole Herschel Walker ***ual shinning.
