The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / XFL Power Rankings: Week 3

XFL Power Rankings: Week 3

A reshaping

8) Tampa Bay Vipers

The Vipers have talent, but once again coaching is an issue. A two-platoon Quarterback system almost never works and I would love to see Quinton Flowers get a shot to play an entire game.

7) L.A. Wildcats

The Wildcats looked better with Josh Johnson under center, but like New York I think the main concern here is the Head Coach as Winston Moss looks in over his head to me.

6) New York Guardians

This was a mess. I am not sure what’s worse, Matt McGloin as a starting quarterback or Kevin Gilbride as a Head Coach? The Guardians have talent but the coaching and quarterback are going to cause issues until rectified.

5) Seattle Dragons

The Dragons defense won them their first game of the season at home. With Brandon Silvers at quarterback, the defense is there only shot to make the playoffs. Former Navy star Keenan Reynolds is emerging as one of the more explosive players in the league. He caught a 68-yard TD from Brandon Silvers and added a two-point conversion in the victory. The atmosphere for the game was great, now they just need better quarterback play.

4) Dallas Renegades

Quarterback Landry Jones passed for 305 yards, a TD and two interceptions in a 25-18 victory over Los Angeles. The running game helped, with Cameron Artis-Payne rushing for 99 yards and a pair of TDs. Payne averaged 7.1 yards per carry and scored the game’s final touchdown with 1:14 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Renegades’ offense was much better in the second half, but Jones has to eliminate the mistakes of Saturday’s game if this team is to have a shot at winning it all.

3) St. Louis BattleHawks

The BattleHawks got screwed over by a missed off-sides call that led to a game-changing interception. The BattleHawks ran twice as many plays as the Roughnecks and quarterback Jordan Ta’amu continues to emerge as one of the faces of the league.

2) Houston Roughnecks

The Roughnecks were outplayed by St. Louis but held on for a hard-fought 28-24 win to improve to 2-0. My caveat here is that I do think Houston has beaten better competition than the Defenders have. Quarterback P.J. Walker continues to be a prolific passer through two weeks, and the running game averaged 4.6 yards per carry on just 17 attempts Sunday.

1) D.C. Defenders

The Defenders shut out New York 27-0, being led by Cardale Jones who passed for 276 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Donnel Pumphrey averaged 4.3 yards per carry and Jameer Thurman scored the team’s second defensive TD in as many weeks. The Defenders looked like the most complete team in the league and have dominated ever since the third quarter of week 1.
