Everett: AAF can help revitalize the NFL

Despite both teams struggling to find momentum - keep in mind that they've only been together for about one month - the Commanders' defense shined in a 15-6 win in their first game. For instance, Tim Tebow would be draftable by the Orlando Apollos, because he went to school at Florida. From all I've read, the AAF got a passing marks for its debut.

"If it creates additional interest in the NFL - which I think it will - I think it proves Americans want to watch football 52 weeks a year", Tisch told TMZ Sports. That could be huge for the NFL considering the number of undrafted free agents the league has on its rosters.

Eight teams, including our own Arizona Hotshots, took to gridirons around the country Saturday and Sunday.

We are no longer looking at Plan B, but Plan D! "If two or three key players are not there, it is our responsibility to find solutions".

BUT there are some differences to the way the National Football League plays, so if you watch the game you should not expect to see the same exact game.

With players attempting to make their way to - or back to - the National Football League, it appeared as though both the talent and effort level were through the roof over the weekend.

McArthur has taken responsibility by pleading guilty, there has been no evidence I can see of remorse", said Justice John McMahon. Body parts of seven victims were found hidden inside large planters that McArthur stored at a client's home in midtown Toronto.

The first way is through the implementation of new rules and game features that the National Football League can look into adopting itself down the line. The Apollos are coached by 73 year old Steve Spurrier. One big difference viewers noticed during Saturday's opening night games was the transparency during replay reviews.

Anyone who has watched the National Football League over the past five seasons or so understands that there aren't enough good quarterbacks or O-linemen for the $15 billion behemoth so the realization that the first three AAF games generated three TD passes and 12 interceptions, a disastrous 1:4 ratio should not have been a surprise. The play on the field will resemble that at times, and the most-glaring spot will always be quarterback. They are angling the AAF as a place for professionals who didn't catch on with National Football League teams, a chance to hone their skills, and maybe get back to the big stage.
