    First professional football game in St Louis since the Rams left and the locals have come to support their new team!
    They got to see this too...

    It's not about his attitude, it's about his drive.  He just completed his 3rd year in the league.  He's done everything the team has asked of him and more because he's an old school team football player.  But he wants to be a starting QB and believes in himself.  From what Coaches and Players say, he's been on a pretty good growth curve and seems to be on the path of what you would expect from a talented player that had some injuries in college. BTW .. he hasn't demanded anything, he just believes in himself and wants a chance to prove he can do it.  Saints are likely putting a first round tender on an undrafted player ... that speaks for itself.  Unlike any of us, they see him in practice and in the film room every day.
    To me, that's exactly the 'attitude' you want out of any QB.

    If you click on the link then there's a bit more context where he's saying he'd love to play with Brees again by the end of the interview.
    I think he's just being honest personally.  He wants a deal that will allow him to look after his family which I believe he deserves.
    Fingers crossed a deal gets done with the Saints as I'd hate to see him play for someone else after all the Saints have done for him.

    There's a Joe Horn Jr playing for New York!  Cool.  And there's a Tampa Bay QB that just threw an interception on their first drive.  Oh well, Tampa gonna Tampa.

    The XFL TV deal is way better.
    It's being shown on major channels worldwide similar to what we watch the NFL on, so I'm watching it on Swedish TV - I just checked online and it's being shown in the UK and other countries in Europe too.  Canada has it, Australia has it.
    The AAF was pretty much North America only which meant if you weren't in that territory you had to find a dodgy stream - then they had that app which was about 2 minutes behind the dodgy stream and over heated my phone!  A really bad experience which was easy to give up on.
    Then the start times make a huge difference.  XFL 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. Swedish time, AAF 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. Swedish time.  I go to bed at 2 a.m. so I never watched the second game - and because it was on a dodgy stream, I could never record it either.
    You make a great point about stadium size.  The spectator numbers are probably pretty similar, but the impression is given that there's more people there.  And there's actually an atmosphere because of that.
    The standard of football is way better too so those spectators will be coming back and probably increasing.  First game was great fun, this game on now has also been great.  I'll definitely be watching again tomorrow for the simple reason there's not the hoops the AAF made me jump through, so all I have to do is switch on my TV.
    It's easy for me to see why the AAF went bust and the XFL looks to be on a winner just for the above reasons.

    The better team won today.   Vikings played a great game.  They owned both lines.  Cook was a madman running the ball.
    Payton got outcoached as well.  Terrible game plan and play calling.   Drew had an off day for sure.  Murray got 6 touches, that's ridiculous.
    Disappointing for sure.  But we weren't robbed this time.  It's all on us.  Team didn't get it done, and the Vikes did.  That's it.

    Found it online.  That's a good 5 yards of separation right there.  No wonder Brees & Bridgewater keep going to the well.

    The route he ran to break the record yesterday was impossible.  That Titans DB didn't stand a chance.

    woooooooooot!!!   Yes assuming we beat Carolina, it prevented the dreaded 3 way tie with the Packers and Hawks. We are the #3 in that scenario. A 3 way tie with SF and GB we'll be the #2 seed. Sf would be #1 due to head to head wins vs both the Pack and Saints. We'd be #2 because we have a better strength of victory than the Packers. SOV is the 5th tie breaker. It's crazy math that makes your head hurt. The best scenario is to beat Carolina, the Packers lose to the vikes or Lions and Sea. beats SF. Packers aren't losing to the Lions at home,so tommorrows game is critical. A SF loss relegates them to the 5 seed and a road game most likely against the eagles

    I agree ATN I honestly think there is not one team in the NFL that scares me that includes the whole NFC. I could not say that going into the season. We have so much depth it is scary. Looking at the NFL the teams with the best pocket passing QB's have some of the weakest O lines. Look at the Chiefs, Pats, Packers, Texans, Seahawks. The list goes on their lines cannot hold up and have proven that when facing good competition. They either have weak tackles, interior, or both. The Ravens showed last night the Pats LT is weak.  Then teams like the Ravens and 49ers haven't faced good run defenses like ours. I honestly am not afraid of any team in the NFL right now. We are playing good solid complimentary football across the board.
