I watched the end of the SD/SA game and the first half of the AZ/SL game. The SD/SA game had an exciting finish.

I thought the execution was pretty good. The play calls were pro level and professional and all the QBs could throw which is more than you can say about college football. I think I even saw the jets-sweep a couple times.

There also is a sense of unfamiliarity when watching these games. The most recognizable names to me on Saturday where Jayrone Elliot and Mike Martz. It will be interesting to see what this looks like in a couple weeks when certain players start standing out in the stats and highlights.

This new league is intended to develop and showcase talented players who are looking for a second chance at an NFL team. Others play for the love of the game and welcome the opportunity to continue to play.

I never expected to see NFL level teams, however I do believe that they will improve each week and AAF Stars will rise to the top. I'm not ready to dismiss it at all, besides they are the only football games available and I can appreciate that.

In addition, a few of this leagues players will get invited to tryout for NFL teams. The only thing that I don't like is their No Kickoff rule.

I may be wrong, but I believe that moving forward, all AAF games will be exclusive to the NFL NETWORK. For many of you this is not a problem as you can afford the NFL Network as a part of your channel package. Some of us don't get more than a minimum package. ESPN, TBS, NFL Network, and much more are not a part of package that my rent provides.

As a result I'll have to read your post on the AAF to keep up a basic knowledge of this league. I look forward to reading your post.

Remember Charles Johnson? I liked him, but since the Green Bay medical staff failed to diagnose that he tore his knee up, he soured on the team. Became a Viking.

Another one of these big fast analytics guys. Sounds like he's putting it together in the minors.

This new league has folded. Read the reports on ESPN, PTF, and others. It was never going to get the support it needed from it's owners. They do now have a betting app that will make them a ton of cash.

Goodbye Alliance of American Football, Vince McMahon and the upcoming XFL should be taking notes before they take to their fields in the spring of 2020.

Zero2Cool (3-Feb) : Were drops the issue or was the issue Rodgers couldn't hit him in stride?
Mucky Tundra (3-Feb) : I felt after his drops became an issue for MVS they should have used him on some jet sweeps to take things back to square one for him (do one thing and do it well and go from there)
Zero2Cool (3-Feb) : Can't help feeling Valdes-Scantling could be doing Deebo Samuel stuff
