2019 Pro Football Thread
« on: February 25, 2019, 10:50:47 AM »
Well been checking out the AAF and the Birmingham Iron. I did not watch the first game, but have watched the last 2 weeks. I think the Iron is a decent team but the WRs can't could not catch a cold (most teams not just Bham) Saw shoelace  yesterday, dropped some passes, still fast as hell though.

A few pros and cons.

Pros:

Its Football

Easy to watch the games on the Tube.

Some cool new rules (the onside possession rule, saw the 1st one in the league yesterday and it was exciting, removal of the XP, 2 pt conversion only, not the stupid way the NFL does it)

The football is exciting and pretty good.

You can still hit the QB, he is not a sacred cow. But still have safety as a concern.

QB's have been accurate.

I think the talent could be NFL quality they have a bit to go.

The football looks good,  I loved the XFL but it did look minor league. This looks like a true pro league (albeit minor league)

Cons:

I think the DL are more advanced at this stage, running games are hard sledding because most OLs get pushed around.

Most games I have watched I have seen plenty of Drops by the WRs.

Some minor league feel to it.

I miss the kickoffs, but they may be a thing of the past soon.


Overall I like the league and teams, it probably won't last, but it is fun football.

Bham team has a Brasil fan page :)

I just got looks at work from genuinely laughing out loud at this.

Yeah, I mean, a new football league always SOUNDS interesting, but it doesn't seem like we'll ever have more than just NCAAF and NFL, with the rare Arena League or similar off-shoot puttering around.

I watched a couple of games and it wasn't bad. I just don't think these leagues are given the chance to develop.  They are not going to be high quality out of the box.  It is like you have a whole group of expansion teams playing each other, so it will take time.  Oh well, I thought this one had a chance but no such luck.

I am still gonna pull for a minor league football league. The guy who infused 250 million only did so to buy the gambling software. I thought it was a good league.

I love when solid defensive guys like Ed Oliver, Devin Bush, and Rashan Gary all fall into the Lions draft spot at #8, and in typical Lions fashion they draft a goddamn TE (the third time they've drafted a TE in the first round since 2009, I might add).

Idiotic organization.

Texans drafted a TE too despite being flush at the position with desperate needs elsewhere.  The war room freaked out when they discovered NE was looking at this guy. OMG, he's the next Gronk, get him!!
