The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / XFL Western Conference Teams: The best in the west

XFL Western Conference Teams: The best in the west

An overview
Publish Date: 02/06/2020
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster
Source: Dallas Morning News

The NFL season is a wrap but no need to plan for months without football. WWE mogul, Vince McMahon remade his football league, the XFL. This version promises to be better, with no gimmicks or WWE crossovers that robbed the original XFL of its credibility with genuine football fans.

The league has improved leadership and straightforward organization. The new rules may take a bit of getting used to, but it is still a much better way to spend weekends than, for instance cleaning the basement.

It seems worth checking out, especially if you are someone who dies a little each day without football in the offseason. If it’s not your thing, no worries, that mess in the basement will wait for you.

Here is a quick overview of the XFL Western Conference teams:

Dallas Renegades- Arlington, Texas
Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas is the home of the Renegades and Bob Stoops is the Head Coach.

All sources point to the Renegades as the top team in the XFL. This is a reasonable prediction considering the team has Stoops plus former offensive coordinator Hal Mumme as well as Landry Jones. At the very least, the Renegades should offer some entertaining use of the Air Raid Offense.

Houston Roughnecks- Houston, Texas
TDECU Stadium will house the Roughnecks who welcome June Jones as their Head Coach.

Watching the Roughnecks could be interesting. Coach Jones has options for the quarterback position with Connor Cook and Phillip Walker both looking to take the snaps. Wide receiver Sammie Coates should be a reasonably reliable target for either QB.

Los Angeles Wildcats- Carson, California
Dignity Health Sports Park is where the Wildcats will play their home games. Winston Moss handles the Head Coaching duties

The Wildcats have a slightly less impressive roster than one would have hoped for in a city where the XFL needs to catch on to get any staying power. Running back, Larry Rose could be fun to watch. Rose had an outstanding college career rushing for over 4,500 yards in his four years at New Mexico State.

Seattle Dragons- Seattle, Washington
CenturyLink Field is the home of the Dragons, and Jim Zorn is Seattle’s Head Coach.

One of the Dragons’ biggest draws could be Seattle Seahawks former quarterback, Jim Zorn at the helm. Zorn has a collection of players who could prove to be playmakers. Notably Chris Davis, formerly of Auburn, who rocked the college football world in 2014 with the play known as the “Kick Six” to secure the Tigers a win over Alabama in the Iron Bowl.

Will the new league thrive or even survive? I’d say since it promises to focus on football and skip the absurdity of the 2001 XFL, this league has a good shot at gaining traction. The XFL 2020 season begins on Saturday, February 8 at 2:00 pm
