    The Legends were left with a horrible head coach when Brad Childress left for the Vikings on short notice.

    JT is a better QB than either of them, but guess they are trying to match positions up to NFL. Think JT could look good as a WR with Patriots.

    At least the 1966 Falcons did better in their first game only losing 19-14 to the Rams

    For those interested, you can watch all games live for free on the AAF site and in the iOS apps.

    I’m not in the southeast, so I had to settle for the other game, and occasionally glance in on the Legends.

    Also, the San Diego / San Antonio game was actually decent. Wasn’t playoff caliber, for sure - but it was interesting down to the last few plays. I think the league will hit its stride - and I love the concept of localizing the rosters to the team cities. That automatically leads to some affinity across the board. My wife is a die hard Nebraska fan, and found a lot to like watching some of their albums play for San Antonio.

    Last thing - based on the looks of the uniforms, I’d take Russell Athletic over Starter any day. They may have some issues with jersey sales.

    The best QB on the Legends is playing wide receiver. Simms missed throws that Jet made with ease and has an even slower release than TQM.

    The offense is already set up to succeed and now you do a dumb rush only five d rule. Are you kidding. Let them play football or not. If the offense knows only 5 can rush max it not only makes it easier, but the staff can set protection schemes that you would not use as regularly in the nfl, since you dont have the threat of the sixth guy.

    I never understood why in these minor leagues they mess with the rules to make it like pop warner. Of all the rules this has got to change.

    The legends coaching staff sucks. Thats a big part of the problem for them. Its a bad staff. It would be bad at the fbs level too. Spurrier toyed with them

    Simms was holding onto the ball WAY too long. Oline play wasn’t good, but it wasn’t the only problem.

    O-line play was bad, but Simms wasn’t helping by holding onto the ball forever. They needed to utilize more quick throws. Also Freddie Burden didn’t do a bad job at center, though he didn’t do well. Still I think he, JT, and Freeman are gonna develop well on this team.

    Murray has to be really bad to be the backup to Matt Simms

    they can only rush five. no team should ever get pressure in this leauge. says a ton about the OL IMO and staff.....now clearly you can't hold the ball for 7 seconds. but they were getting immediate pressure. burden did not look good. confused as to line slides and pickups. he let a few guys free.

    Legends did not look good against Spurrier. Not so sure we have a quality HC, not well prepared

    Of coure Simms was still running for his life most of the time he was in so i'm sure he loves the rules. Also assume they are trying to amp up the offenses and limit injuries to keep their costs down.

    According to CBS Sports the AAF had three million viewers last night. Not bad at all.

    Can we get this moved to the sports forum. Stop filling my feed with Unread highlighted AAF garb.

    Happy Sunday. That is all.
