XFL UNHINGED | Season Predictions, XFL Champion, MVP and more…


Oh
Boys and girls children of all ages
The extreme football league newsroom calm is proud to percent. It’s raining. It’s
Defending its most hated podcast the unhinged
podcast
If you went down with that, I got two words. Oh, yeah
Hey there lakes in jello, I’m Jay – and welcome to another episode of an inch podcast
We had a request for – for the old intro. So what a heck not just do that for our shits and giggles
It’s been maybe two weeks since we dropped the last podcast
Apologize personal issues. I cannot leave the City of Jacksonville for at the moment until it’s resolved
It’s more of a family issue than anything else
So I won’t be joining Carlos in DC next week for the kickoff of the 2020 season
but more of that will be later in the show or we give away two tickets to a winner of the contest of
Our ticket giveaway, but no further ado Carlos rescue in the guide

Part man part machine all podcaster Carlos aka the wrestling movie. Yeah, and it has
Been here. It was nice to hear that throwback for a while
I actually thought that people didn’t like it goes to show what the hell I know
Go figure
Before we get the show started as always we want to say

And most of all we thank you guys for listening
So what are we getting into first today?
Well, unfortunately, usually when you get ready for a football season you want to get it
Excited your money ecstatic. You want to see what can happen?
Predictions some debates, but unfortunately
last week
tragedy struck the sports world where
five-time NBA champion
Kobe Bryant lost his life with seven other
individuals on aircrafts occur including his daughter Gianna
This I want to pay for the first segment of our show today
Is look back at the not really the career
But the individual that Kobe Bryant is I know a lot of us out there in the sports world
People who are mourning his loss over the last couple of days
Were fans of him and also despise him ladies and gentlemen, these two individuals on this podcast being Carlos
We despised Kobe with a passion when he played in the NBA
I was a Celtics fan Celtics do not cheer for Lakers and I’m a Wizards fan and
Everybody does better than the Wizards. So I pretty much hated everyone especially Kobe, but
One thing do you have to give credit for Kobe is that he set the standard to?
athletes in any sport of how to compete each and every day on your crap to be the best you can be
he basically
inspired the modern-day NBA athletes or
The modern-day football players including the tellers are playing the XFL in a couple of weeks
they looked up to Kobe Kobe was their Idol Kobe Bryant was that character off of that sitcom that you watched twelve seasons off of
But for us men who for a sports fan, not men even ladies. I’m not gonna leave you guys out
The Kobe Bryant was the nemesis to some of us he was dr. Doom. He was dr. Evil
He was Darth Vader of the sports world. He was and also he was the hero
but
looking back him as a person who despised him and
We I’m not going to touch back on his history of what happened to, Colorado
subject for another day
You got a look at what he did over since he got that accusation happened. He
Matured as an adult had kids and became
From what I’ve seen a very good loving father and he pretty much created an empire
Are starting to create a company an empire with the SPN and his own Mamba?
enterprise and
started to
Be lived a life after the NBA and from what I’ve seen from all the articles and stories
From what he was, you know inspiring, dude
he was a you basically he was getting to the coaching realm for his daughters and I know
We shouldn’t be, you know, you know take our solemn against
Hollywood superstars, but you have to you know, you you’re my heart sucked when I found out that his daughter
Was in the aircraft with them and along with the other three
Young kids who were part of the same mama basketball team also lost her life when the helicopter
crashed in
California on Sunday morning and
When I got the text message from a buddy around one o’clock saying Kobe Bryant was killed
I thought it was one of those face fake Facebook post of fake deaths that we see
Constantly from multiple like Hollywood Superstars
Even though that I wasn’t a Laker fan, I appreciate its Kobe. I respected the damn man
His some of his games are gonna be highlighted in history from years ago way past when me and you the listeners out
There are long and gone from the face of this earth as well
He is a symbol that live on forever in the NBA. He’s a hall-of-famer
His jerseys most of them be retired every single NBA arena
Both of them. Probably there is now
a
Petition of him being the logo the NBA which I think it’s a little bit far-fetched
But there is one Kobe Bryant may not been the greatest
Personality or athlete and whoever walk on the NBA court
But one thing for sure he did inspire a whole generation of athletes
there
Currently playing in the professional sports from the NBA NFL Major League Baseball and when his passing happened you saw the sports world
gets shooken and that tells you how gravity
For him as an athlete as an icon as that
Superhero or villain the matter way you look at him of how big he was as an individual in our modern-day sports life
I can go on forever about him. But Carlos, what’s your two cents about Kobe Bryant and the knight souls that were lost on Sunday
You know, he really was quite shocking when I found out I woke it up. It was my day off
So I’d slept in my friends had come over because we were gonna watch the Royal Rumble
So, you know I wake up. I look at my phone and I see Kobe Bryant dies and
In a helicopter crash you actually had texted me and I looked at things like I can’t believe what happened to Kobe
I was like what he got in trouble for income tax or some accusation. There’s nothing or he’s getting blackmailed
What what’s going on? Azeris Candle the furthest thing from my mind was a helicopter crash and
When something like that happens you ride away kind of get I don’t like the styles because the word for it
But you kind of go back in your mind as to
What this guy did?
for me
I have such a strange history with the guys since I was a kid because I remember when the 76ers were playing them and
the NBA Finals back in I believe 2000 2001
And I appreciate step over. Yep. That one I was actually happy, you know as a kid
I didn’t really have all my loyalty’s down yet and you know, you love a billion teams when you’re in like elementary
Middle school, but as you get older, you know, you start to get more loyalty and that’s you know around the time
I became a Wizards fan so I couldn’t possibly like the Lakers they were the Empire they were
Essentially what the Patriots are now you just couldn’t stand to like them
But as I got older, you know
I still didn’t like the Lakers but you had to give the man his respect. He would outwork everyone there
He would be that guy. That’d be the first one on the court to practice and the last one to leave
He would shoot for about 45 minutes to an hour before
an actual game like most people will be pretty damn tired, but with he would just keep going and he would crush you and
I believe it was Jay Williams just did a interview
Recently or he said that that that moment where he hung out with them before the game has started completely changed his life
Because when he took from that was that he would outwork anyone that was his Mamba mindset
I am going to outwork you more than anybody else
No one will be able to touch what I can do and that was his mindset throughout his whole entire career
I mean he got five rings. He played for about 20 years
He went to 18 all-star games. He averaged 25
points per game
And shot a 55 tree shooting percentage through his career like that’s insane
absolutely insane, you know Jordan is
Definitely number one in a no discernable order. This has always been my top five players of all time
And of course you got a draw number one
Wilt Chamberlain Larry Bird Magic Johnson Kobe
That’s the Mount Rushmore the rest you can debate, you know, as long as you want, but for me, that’s the top five
I think that probably my favorite game that I ever saw him play. It wasn’t the championship game
It wasn’t early in his career
it was his very last game that game more than any other that sticks out in my mind because
This was his last game, you know, he’s about to retire
We’ll see him you’re gonna look like without him, but he made sure to leave his imprint on the game by scoring 60 points
60 points off 50 shots
Because it’s just walked in there’s it. So the rest of the team step the hell back. This is mine
I’m going out on my terms and he did and he’s gonna be missed and like you said
There are people that could bring up what happened to Colorado and whatnot. And you know, they have the right to do that
But at the same time you got to think about decency now is not the time to bring that up
oh, yeah, you have people like that and
Yeah
It’s annoying as all hell, it’s dirty. You gotta wait a while before you can start doing this like
Like when Bill Maher, you know after 9/11 started bringing it up
You know, it was our fault that we created al-qaeda. You know, you’re not wrong
But it ain’t the time. You’re not just gonna say that a few days after 9/11 happens
you’ve got to give time you know, so pay your respects to this man and besides
He became a better human being after everything that happened. He created
academies for all kids for you know women’s
Schools and med schools he was doing a lot of good stuff for the LA Sparks
I believe that’s the team in Los Angeles for the WNBA. I mean, he just was a great philanthropist
He was a great father and there’s not much else
He could say even more that even bigger than his career is what a great family man
he was and that it should be his legacy for
I look at this way. Sep 4 digging up the guy’s past and try and bury him for what he did
16 years ago think of the
Vanessa Bryant
Now widow of a Kobe the wife of Kobe Bryant think of what she has to go through now raising three kids
Losing a daughter and losing the husband on the same day
You go see it you guys send support and apparently from what I’ve been reading
She’s doing a very good job, but it’s going to take a long time for her
I know the City of LA has come together. I know you don’t want compare tragedies to tragedies but
The City of LA came together for what happened to Kobe and that’s you know, it’s that’s pretty
If you if you lived in a city that experienced a tragedy you can almost compare to maybe September 11th
Where when that struck the whole nation came together?
The new so Kobe Bryant a happened the whole city of la came together
and that and that’s that’s a good sign and even though in in
In the in his passing. He’s the old scheme of things in his past. Yeah in his passing
He this file will happen LA came together. So
Kobe Bryant leaves us at the age of 41 on
What was it the 23rd last Sunday at goes 23rd or the
2032 24 Sunday morning 10:58 a.m. Pacific Standard Time
Rested peace mama
Oh, it was actually another 26
26. Yeah why I think today’s Sunday. Anyways, I’m real quick. Just so nobody twisted
We’re bringing up 9/11 we’re not talking about like they’re actually comparable because I can feel it
I can feel somebody sending a tweet saying how dare you compare that now, you know
We know we’re just talking about the collectiveness
it feels like everybody in the world has like kind of brought hands together because you see people
That are tennis players rugby players even pool players, you know snicker guys that you’ll see on ESPN
England, you know Scot sports. They’re all wearing Kobe rice though. This everybody’s been affected by this in some form or another
Just in that context. So please don’t come at us with a bunch of why are you comparing? So oh, yeah
well, we’ll have people that do that and they usually come and you know, go comment on the
anchor
Anchor site or go on our YouTube site or go to XFL newsroom calm and though
You know act like they’re smart asses and you know the post comm it’s like oh you do this you compare these two
It’s then they block us on Twitter. So we don’t have a chance to reply back to the comments. So it happens
It happens all the time we get the usual
Block messages on Twitter’s like oh, that’s the same guy who blocked us who’s trying to talk trash? Well anyways
Recipes mama, we’ll see you soon. Hopefully not too soon. But give Jesus a couple good games up there
And crap. There’s some other NBA legends up there as well right now. So I guarantee there be whooping it up right now, but
Kobe leaves us
For age of 41 tragically lost but as sports fans
We have to move on
So
Next segment number two little over-under perhaps. Yeah segment number two
I know we can’t really segue into for the tribute to Kobe Bryant to the except they’ll but it’s kind of hard
It’s kind of hard, but I wanted to do a little you know
low Kobe Bryant tribute to a guy who is that magnitude of an athlete in our time and pretty much our prime our
Childhood Kobe was there
but
over/unders in the XFL Cesar entertainment also known as Caesars Palace
Released over unders of all eight XFL teams. Some of them are real pretty ridiculous
some of them are
kind of, you know low balling and others are just quite interesting, but that’s what you get when you have
Vegas and you have betting lines of you’ll have certain, you know certain
Games or matchup certain teams getting old favored or not favored enough, for example
At seven a half
Over-unders of wins Vegas thinks that the Tampa Bay Vipers, but when seven and a half games
over/under
They just lost the Tonio Callaway for the season
He’s on and reserve they have air Murray the quarterback who played for the Atlanta myths
legends
Oh
I get throughout get real petty
but seven and a half
That’s high because the reason why I say it’s very high
Am I talking about, you know smoking the cannabis talk about over unders here. Ladies and gentlemen
Don’t snitch on that and don’t report us to the XFL say oh you got a podcast you’re selling weed above the XFL
Seven and a half remember ladies and gentlemen ten games is how long the regular season is ten?
Seven and a half. So you’re telling me that if you go over you’re winning eight games
If we’re doing seven seven half
Over and unders for the Tampa Bay Vipers baby. I gotta take the under there
I just don’t see them even reaching seven wins this year
maybe that’s mine being a little biased or as xfo or is just me just not believe it in that quarterback system right now and
Marc Trestman is a good coach
Someone at seven 1/2 is if I’m betting this I’m not touching it bro. I’m not touching it. What about you?
Perfectly honest I think that
The top four at the end of the day
You know know the sural order
gonna be DC defenders
DC defenders, DC defenders and DC defenders because honestly
I’d be a complete liar. If I said that I know everything about every team. I really don’t
I’ve only been paying attention to DC defenders
Carnell Jones I think is gonna be a big deal with Rashard Ross. I think that Ross is incredibly underrated
He deserves an NFL spot. He didn’t get it
but now he’s got a spot in DC happy to have him back his former risk and he played quite well for us he had
104 yard touchdown touchdown return
He also managed to get a block punt for a touchdown
So this guy can play and I think that was Cardale Jones and the right offensive system with Joe with pip Hamilton
Properly coaching him. I think they’re gonna be quite explosive
I think that the whole league is rather sleeping on them or at the very least Caesar’s palaces for me
That’s about as much as I know I think
defense wise
Looks like we’re going to be alright
But who knows under these new rules like this could completely change the entire rhythm of how teams play, you know
Like a Reno football league is quite different than NFL because of how the role is, you know?
You’d have to have linebacker stay in a specific box area
So things are definitely gonna be different in the xfo which completely changes my perspective of how to predict things
the only way I think that I’m gonna properly be able to
you know come up with an
amalgamation of what’s gonna happen is
When I actually see them play after game one once I can go through look at all the highlights. I see what they’ve got
I’ll be able to have more answers for you before right?
Come on top for DC defenders. Do you see the fenders DC defenders and
Yeah, DC defenders with the five best rappers of all time
Think about it
Thailand
Thailand
Thailand Thailand the diner because I spit hot fire
The over under what we’re on right now though varam second village ellen
tampa bay’s number one at seven and a half games winner or one above or under I
Think that’s too high for tampa. But if the playoffs started today via Vegas
Tampa Bay
Washington
Dallas and Houston are the four teams representing
the first playoffs of the XFL
Dallas
over/under is at six same as Houston at six so
That could be both pushes right there both at six and four and of course the bomb dweller teams in LA, New York st
Louis and CLR off four wins and
That’s very well can be pushed, but I will tell you right now
my prediction is very
Very very very straight to the point
I believe that the West is going to be the best division but the champions coming out of the East in the
XFL button over unders
So let me give it back to you ladies and gentlemen Tampa Bay at seven and a half Dallas and Houston at six
DC at five and a half la New York st
Louis and Seattle at four go to Cesar
Entertainment or Caesars Palace to place your bets for when totals
If I was a betting man, I would say under on Tampa Bay push for Dallas push for Houston
over for DC
Over for LA over for New York and
Push push for a st. Louis at Seattle
That’s just me. Just
Just saying what I think you don’t have to bet on it. Don’t say J – told me to do this
Now I’m I’m broke. Well, you’re the
But
One thing I won’t say when it comes to the Dallas renegades
I’m kind of surprised that they’re as high up as they are because Landry Jones does have that lingering injury, which could affect this play
He’s supposed to be there for the season opener
But you think that a question mark like that would actually hurt them, but I will say having Lance Dunbar
Not not too shabby. Not too shabby. I think he’s actually gonna be alright for them. I think Dallas well
They may lose one game
They may they may lose week one a week to because of the absence of Landrieu Jones
But he does play it may not it may not affect them in my opinion. I
Do think Dallas is gonna have one the most explosive offenses in the league?
As this point so to my own
Connor cook as well
for the Houston Roughnecks
I actually always felt that he could be decent but I never saw enough of it
And of course you stuck behind Derek Carr if I recall correctly, correct?
with that laser after this break we will be coming back with our
XFL unhinge podcast Power Rankings
Presented by except on newsroom comm this is our Power Rankings coming up next
That’s such a boy J – second part of the show
Of course is you know my partner crime here his power rankings only consists of four teams
And it’s defenders defenders defenders and defenders
Yeah, that’s what you’d like to call one big
Roster
It’s like man vs. Bad and just have the way at home jerseys so
The power rankings are here. Ladies and gentlemen are gonna be unique as what Carlos said in the last segment
You don’t know what these teams are until they start playing
So my power rankings don’t mean shit in week two
When I don’t know maybe the bottom four teams win all their games and the top four teams lose all their games
possibly
That’s what power rankings are doing and power rankings are you know, there’s there’s stuff to excite, you know?
discussion about a league but in
professional sports leagues no matter what’s professional sport league you’re into there’s one thing that
they have that colleges don’t have for college leagues don’t have and that is
Playoffs you don’t need to be voted into something make a tournament you earn your way into the tournament
but to start off the Power Rankings of the preseason Power Rankings for the unhinged podcast coming in at number eight is
the st. Louis
battle Hawks
There’s really no question about the st. Louis by the Hawks. Do you believe they will have won the best secondaries in a league?
Jordan taboo
just got picked as a starting quarterback for
The st
Louis Bal Hawks all the reason why I have him at eight right now is because they go on the road the first two weeks
at Dallas and at Houston, it’s pretty much a
Show it show me you may go up in the rankings
But I do believe st. Louis will have a great home crowd. I do think st
Louis is going to be a four to five win team this year. So right now someone has a start eighth
I really I really don’t want to take you guys off
So hear the boos already. Oh, yeah, st. Louis fans are becoming those type of fans, right and
Unsubscribe if that happens. We lose it all the time
Number seven is to see our dragons where a lot of podcasts which on our website
XFL newsroom comm have the dragons is dead last the reason why I don’t have the dragons at dead last is because
A certain quarterback that I really do like and that is Brandon Silver’s I do believe he is a fairly under rated
Quarterback in the XFL the only reason why they’re at seven because st
Louis is at eight and I believe the teams above them are a little bit better
But yes, you do have people who do predict the league like
They think they know everything and they say well CL has the worst quarterbacks
You know has the worst defense Iowa has the worst offense. I’d you believe that. Okay, I think
quarterbacks are going to be the main reason you win championships in any league and
I do believe that Seattle has a chance or has it
Diamond in the rough and Brandon Silver’s who I think will keep them in playoff contention
All the way to the final week of the season
But to start the preseason rankings
I got them at number seven number six coming in in the Power Rankings is the team from my state the Tampa Bay
Vipers they they were higher on the
Power Rankings, they were at three for me
But with the loss of Antonio Callaway, they dropped down to number six still questioning their quarterback, Aaron Murray
But do see a quarterback coneflowers playing a lot more
Having a lot more game time and of course, I love that big time
Running back. They have Devon Smith and Jack has Patrick. I do believe there have a very good running game in
Tampa number five will head out to the west coast of Los Angeles
I have no idea what’s going on in LA Louise Perez to the New York Guardians
But do you know Shawn Oakman is over there
They have a very very I do believe LA is gonna be one of the best defenses in the league
On the offense they have Joe Johnson who played?
Many games in the DC
And yes, you don’t
but I LA it’s gonna be that team in the West that
Just like Seattle, they’re gonna battle for it
maybe the wild-card or the last playoff spot in the West and
Be that five and five team that may have some type a curse over certain teams
number four is the team I think will be a
Very good chance of when the Eastern Conference is the New York Guardians
I don’t think people realize that Matt McGloin is a starting quarterback for the Guardians
But you don’t trade for Luis Perez if you’re not a if you’re not a 100% sold on your quarterbacks
So I do believe there is a big question mark in that quarterback room for the New York dragons
But I do think New York dragons will be a very tough team to push around in the Eastern Conference or an Eastern Division
I got the many set New York Giants, New York Guardians
Man mr. In a Football League Aaron Garcia up in here
Attachments. Yeah
Oh
the number three on the Power Rankings day, Houston
Roughnecks
I’m only doing this because I do love Connor Cook and I love the head coach down there
Yes, I know PJ Walker’s gonna be the starting quarterback
Houston Roughnecks, they’re gonna be a running gun spray them out. We’re gonna throw the ball throw the ball over the field
They’re gonna not gonna be a team that’s gonna run the ball a lot. There would be a very explosive offense
There gonna be a very explosive offense and be very competitive
Number two is the Dallas renegades
its Dallas
Landry Jones Eric Dungy
There and loaded this year. I think Dallas overall will be in the top tier of the XFL for majority of the season
And of course number one
little fandom here
The watch this is my list
This is my list the Washington defenders are number one the Cardale Jones, of course
Moss a Ross Keys when I say moss for us I
Do think that the Washington defenders have the best running back core in the XFL
and of course
I do believe that Audie field is going to be a very hostile environment for
Opponents going into their starting next week when Seattle comes into town
So to recap my Power Rankings for pre-season remember these can change
instantly and they can probably will and they probably will because we honestly are just
Guessing on how these teams are laid Joe so number eight is st
Louis number seven to Seattle number six is Tampa Bay number five is Los Angeles. Number four is the New York drag?
Number three is the Houston Roughnecks number two zitao’s renegades and number one is the Washington defenders
that’s the week one power rankings, but
Talking about the number six team in the league Tampa Bay Vipers my power ranking. I got a chance to interview Jake Foley
Who is the runner and operator of ready to strike viper nation podcast?
Which is a new podcast a part of the XFL newsroom, calm family
here is our ten-minute conversation about what T thinks the
Vipers will do this season and hopefully maybe improve their power rankings in the XFL
time to cross the streams
Welcome back ladies and gentlemen to unhitch podcast
Of course
You know who I am. I am. Jay – the boy the most hated personality in the XFL along star ad to strike a viper
Nation, Jake Foley. Welcome to the show man. Oh
It’s a pleasure to be here. Thank you for having me. I’m really excited to talk about some XFL. Oh
That’s that’s what we do here on henge podcast, especially in XFL newsroom family
Of course, we know ladies and gentleman on this particular show
We’ve been talking about you know, all the eight teams around the league
This one of course is the he’s he lives in fort myers. He lives on the other side of state than I do
I live up in Jacksonville, but
I
Was really not into the VIPRE type of fans base area
Technically if you look at the XFL and a map they show you this is where you live
this is who you should pull for but I
Don’t and by no you sir are a Vipers
Fanatic and you’re in a couple of sentences or maybe in the paragraph. We’re made in a couple minutes
what should fans who are not Viper fans or who are questioning who the pool for should pick the
Vipers as their XFL team
Now you need to understand what this roster is made of there’s many different types of football
There’s fast football the more there’s a pro-style where you go slower. The Vipers have 14 players
That played college in South, Florida
Now people from South Florida know that South Florida produces the best athletes the most athletic
These are the players that you need on a team like the XFL that’s going to have new rules and it’s going to be neat
To be an innovative offense that can be changed around athleticism. And that’s what we have and
That’s what people need to understand. You want to watch an
exciting a
fast electrifying offense led by Erin Murray
Not to mention we do have the best coach in the league and my favorite part of the whole thing is the hate
coming from Marc Trestman
the hate of how he
Performed when he played for the Chicago
whee-hee coach for the Chicago Bears
But why are we talking about all those great years in the CFL?
Or maybe we shouldn’t be talking about any of it because this is a whole different league
This is the first league
Where you need it you start off with a coach who is also the general manager
So you do not go off their coaching abilities you go off of their
mindset and their football mind because they have to see a vision for a team they want and then create it around it and
That’s exactly what Marc Trestman has done with this Tampa Bay Vipers team. He has built around a
consistent offense
that has heavy running up the middle led by Debbie on Smith from Michigan and
Jackie’s Patrick from FSU everybody from South Florida knows jockeys Patrick and what he was doing at FSU and
Then on top of that you have a we lost Antonio Callaway, which would have easily brought us to the championship
But we do have a lot of resources left we have some chante vyas jones an
Absolute animal
ready to step in and take over for the big workload that he is now do
We have a lot of other guys low key. We have a good defense
led by a very solid linebacker group
Emanuel Biel for those that are big college football fans was an absolute animal in Oklahoma this guy
ran through offensive lines and
destroyed running backs and I think he’s going to bring that same energy and
Passionate football style and just go right through the offensive lines
On top of that. We have a very good and also
Mysterious defensive back group we have de montreuil hurst who played for oklahoma was a very impressive cornerback in college
Jalen Collins
Who should still be in the NFL if it wasn’t for his awful off-field issues?
That got him suspended for a whole season from the NFL and then you also have a guy named Rennell Hall
This is another South Florida. It’s all comes down to the South Florida mindset. He played wide receiver at UCF
he was a very talented wide receiver and
Now he is a new hybrid of wide receivers being turned into quarterbacks. I think it’s gonna work out
well, I think we’re gonna have a very good defense behind this high-powered offense and
on top of that our kickers, Andrew Franks
another South Florida legend kicker from Miami
But with all that being said, I think this team is being underrated I do
believe you are right when we were talking before about the over-under for the team winds should not be seven and a half all the
Teams should be like four and a half right in the middle and then just determine because we don’t know
but the Tampa Bay Vipers have
The best coach and the XFL and I believe he has the exact team around him that he needs to be successful
Some fighting words about having your team having the best positions and best players on
no, not really on but in the XFL but some of the people out there that don’t know what Tampa well he’s gained the
getting the narrative push about South Florida in the South Florida is
majority of your NFL players this majority of your recruits
I go into college to some of the major universities its universities like, Oklahoma, Ohio State USC
Texas Texas A&M Florida floor state Georgia, they all go down to the Tampa area. They all go down to Orlando
They all go down to Miami Fort Myers and Jacksonville to go look for players the state of Florida
there’s a phrase for people who live downstate Florida as football is king and
And that’s what you do Jake is right that is the
ultimate
reason, why players
Come out of the state of Florida were the best at it. That’s our sport. Mainly we’re good in all sports, but
football
And on top of that I was wondering how big of a factor this was going to be
so I actually deemed the defensive back coach William fields who came with Trestman from
From the Canadian Football League and he told me basically that
Everything is gelling together. This is way more than you know, the AF was like a tryout team
he’s saying this is a family trust Minh has developed a family because like I said,
14 of these guys played football in South Florida on top of that at least I
Believe I forgot to write down the number, but I think it was 20 21 of them went into high school in South, Florida
trust Minh knew what he was doing with this roster and he has exactly what he needs and I think it’s exactly what this
XFL needs especially if teams go out there with their offense and things fail
when game plans fail athleticism
Steps up and I think that’s why the Tampa Bay Vipers are really gonna surprise a lot of teams in the XFL
Well, that’s like you mentioned you Vegas has the loss
Almost Vegas has the Tampa Bay Vipers at seven 1/2 wins on the 2020 season
Which is if you’re a betting man out there ladies and gentlemen
Or woman, whatever
You will not touch seven and a half especially on the 10th game season because you have no idea ridiculous. That’s a high number
but
What are the key things that you look for in to a team like the Tampa Bay Vipers?
well, you look at the single Carlos and
yeah, everyone knows Aaron Murray and
Everyone still remembers the bad taste of Erin Murray left in
Atlanta and the AF but a guy you need to watch out for ladies in my opinion for the Tampa Bay Vipers is a
a
Household name in Tampa. He used to play for South Florida now. I’m not talking about BJ Daniels
He’s in Seattle, but that would have been great if he was in Tampa
Talked about quitting flowers. That is a mobile. He has a good arm
Willie Taggart had him unfortunately, well attacker had him in South Florida, which was a you know
The launching point of South Florida Graham before Taggart went to Oregon then went on to go to FSU and destroy my alma mater
but besides from that as
You said Marc Trestman is what you say is the best head coach in the xfo and that’s your opinion and that’s fans opinion
That’s what we need in the XFL from other podcasts out there to the league. There’s a lot of people that sugarcoat things about
certain teams certain organizations and certain videos and certain shows
There’s something there has to be some backlash and there has to be some arguments because this is a new league
We need to have rivalries, but one thing that the more final question for you
Sir in the Eastern Conference, you get the defenders in New York and the Seattle battle CL st. Louis battle Hawks
Who do you think Tampa Bay’s natural rival would be in the XFL?
well, I see Tampa as a
high-powered like wanna watch team only because people are like
So most people are so expecting this to be like some sort of like show they’re not understanding the talent in the XFL
So when they actually see the talent, they’re gonna realize how strong the Vipers are as a team
And so the natural rival is probably gonna be the DC defenders because they have a decent team around them
I think Cardale Jones is a fraud
I don’t think I think most people that actually watch football film know why he’s not in the NFL
I’m not sure why he has much star power for the DC defenders. I think Tyree Jackson’s gonna take over
boy, I think we go head to head on them because it’s way more of a person I way more of a skill thing the
St. Louis battle Hawks. I love Jordan tamo. I want to see him work out
I mean that
That could be a rivalry just because Erin Murray from Georgia Tann moved from Ole Miss if you want to really make a stretch
But I don’t see the battle Hawks as being too good of a team
I mean the coaches Jonathan Hayes who has been a tight ends coach for 12 years
So I just don’t see them that guy really being the one who’s gonna be able to put a whole team together
So I say it’s against the defenders
They might be the only team that gives us a run to get to come out of our division
But obviously we’re coming out on top and the Vipers are going to be winning the championship this year. I
Love your positivity man really do and that’s what we need in the XFL and especially here at XFL news room calm
ladies, nobody can find him at Rs our
TSV Viper nation or luckily at ready to strike viper nation on twitter
j fo sports
Or you can just follow him at XFL newsroom com where we got podcast by American noise
Truant Hawkins at the XFL podcast and of course myself with Carlos with the unhinged podcast
We are the XFL newsroom
family, and I like to welcome you to the family and hopefully we can you know have these little talks throughout the season and we’ll
Break down some games and talk about some beni odds for the other three. Thanks for having me
Welcome back. Let’s jump to the unhinge podcast. It’s your boy. Jay – ah
It’s closing out the show here. But hey, this is what you like to call preseason power ranking slash
predictions
And I’m going to do what we do best
XFL predictions
What do we think?
who are our division champions who we think are gonna be the XFL champion – I think it’s going to be the MVP or
Carlos is going to be the MVP. So I always am yeah, you are. Yeah, okay
Do any brach lesson to come in here throw you out of the ring? Mr. MVP, they hate us because they ain’t us. Oh
God, I really hate that phrase. Yeah
So
The division for you, sir for the Eastern Conference or Eastern Division
Guess the only obvious choice would probably be the New York Guardians. They would have to be number two because of what cadet sure
I’m going off your rankings here
Dallas Houston
Clearly West Coast
Washington New York won and Ford clearly eastcoast kind of got to go with Guardians
But if not the Dark Horse has got to be the Wildcats
If they can get the receiver back healthy, maybe they got a shot
Continuing but from what I hear doesn’t look like that’s gonna happen. Somebody’s gonna have to step up. So most likely
Washington defenders second choice guardians wild card well the Vipers but when it comes to the west coast
Let’s see the Dallas or Houston seems pretty easy to me. It seems pretty simplified. It’s got to be one or the other but the
Dragons, I don’t know why I feel like there’s something there. Just got a feeling
I’ve got a feeling that the Seattle Dragons will
be able to make up for the lack of town through sheer passion because you know that those
Those fans in Seattle can get anybody to do anything
Like they add that little extra 12th man touch. So those may be good jackets could come in and steal at all
But yeah, most likely
East Coast defenders West Coast renegades, I’m gonna go with that
Okay renegades defenders
well
you might be absolutely right, but then again you might be I’m still around but we’re not experts here my East Coast predictions are
Like what you said the three teams in my opinion are going to be either the Vipers the guardians or the defenders
That will win the division
You got a lot of heat games later in the year that are going to be a decisive
To who’s going to win the east in my opinion and I do believe the divisions will be set division will actually be settled in
Either week 9 or of course week week 8 and 9 I think will determine the divisions
between the three teams between the Tampa Bay Vipers the New York dragons and the
Washington defenders and I always say that the Eastern Division champion will be the Washington defenders with the
Tampa Bay Vipers
Coming in as the fourth seed or the wild-card to make the playoffs
in the Eastern Conference in the Western France is a
Logjam, because I do believe the Western Conference is going to have the toughest division in sports. I’m not in sports but in the XFL
I’m almost to a point where?
we only have two teams in the in the Western Conference that have six wins and we’re gonna have two teams they’re going to have
Five wins. I really do believe that’s going to be the Western or not you Scott the Western Conference, not the Eastern Conference
With I do think the Dallas renegades
you know may start off slow because of the injury the Landry Jones but finished off the season strong and when the division and
Unfortunately, I know I may get some little
hatred for the people out west and Los Angeles
but I think that Houston Roughnecks will be the second team to make the postseason in the West so
In the West Dallas and Houston in the East Washington and Tampa Bay
XFL
When you get into playoffs there’s one thing that needs to be won and that is the XFL championship
Who wins?
the 2020 XFL title Carlos
and I
don’t even know where to begin on that somehow because
Football is just cursed around here in DC
I would imagine there’s a decent chance that the football guys would be cruel again and kick a Washington team out of the playoffs
Right away
So, I don’t know I feel I feel so biased about this right now like for my point of view
It’s kind of hard to to take it seriously, but just to play devil’s advocate. I
Say Guardians well
Let’s just just kind of throw that in there. Maybe Guardians. Like I don’t know why New York. Always who’s a good luck with that
but
Again, this is just a prediction. I would have an expert no claim to be won
If I did I’d be a full-on liar. But yeah, well I playing devil’s advocate taking DC to fiendish to the side
I guess I got to go with guardians. Ah
so
you have the Guardians making the playoffs as a wild-card team and knocking off the defenders in the first round and
Winning the championship. I love those wild-card teams. Uh,
I’m gonna have to go with the Vegas favorite Dallas renegades are at plus 300 to win the title
I do think that Dallas has the better team
I’m don’t think they might honestly I’m to a point where
I’ll be satisfied
If I see the renegades versus Washington and the XFL championship game will be more awesome now be an be
You know Amash to their actual rivalry between two cities bo actually be very heartbreaking for you
For you reskin fans and you hardcore
DC fans as if the defenders hosted the XFL championship game and Dallas goes into DC and gets the W
That’s the heartbreaker, but it’d be Joyce. It’d be a celebration if it was by verse I think the Renegades in my opinion
even with Landry Jones hurt
They got a very good quarterback in Aaron
Dungy that no one talks about by watched and play a couple years with the Syracuse Orangemen and the ACC
very mobile has he has
Very good skill as a quarter quarterback
And I think he is a you know compliment he’ll be good for a couple games. You may not name from all ten
They’ll be good for a couple of games. So I like the Renegades to be the XFL champions of
2020
DP got any calls for that?
VP is gonna be unique here
usually the MVP is for the team that has the best record or who’s going to win a championship or who is
You know
The icon of the league
My MVP is unique. I talked about him before in the show. People are like
Really?
My name VP is gonna be a player that no one talking no one’s talking about
No one’s given him respect but he is the head man of a team and this team will be in playoff contention
at the end of the year, but will not I’m not gonna say will not but
he’s gonna put up some oppressive numbers that keep his team in the fold, but
Like some MVPs they just don’t get a chance to compete for a championship like Lamar Jackson
My MVP will go to quarterback Brandon Silver’s of the Seattle dragons
I think he has all the all the tools to be a excellent quarterback. He’s being overlooked
By a lot of people in the XFL but I like his mechanics
I love his playing style and I think he will lead Seattle to a playoff push won’t be surprised if they make the playoffs
But I’m definitely not seeing them as the worst team in the league what Vegas thinks they are. So
MVP brain and Silver’s quarterback CLO dragons and for me
For me, I think it’s pretty pretty clear. I think it’s gonna be a shark Ross or Shawn Ross
That guy just killed it absolutely killed it
fifty two targets thirty six catches
583 yards and seven touchdowns in just eight weeks. That’s pretty damn impressive
Like I think that he’s just gonna light it up. He’s just gonna be all about speed speed speed
He’s gonna kill it out there. I think that that’s my number one choice
Wow, that’s a unique a strange. We’re supposed to be both defender fans here, and we have a very
spread out predictions of the season you
Have the car hands when in the XFL title I have the defenders hour renegades winning the XFL
championship I have friends Silver’s MVP you ever shard Ross is MVP unique, but then again
Come week five five weeks from now and we may be like Jesus Christ
ocl hasn’t won a game and
The dragons are still looking for a starting quarterback
It’s that’s how seasons are because there wasn’t an XFL season last year
sound like the NFL where there’s you know a hundred years before this year seasons coming up so
you know where you’re looking at and you could tell by history what your team is going to do, but
speaking of history
