  1. I’m kinda sorta maybe excited a little bit.

    Seriously, I probably won’t watch, but I strongly think football needs this. There are so many talented players that fall between the cracks that a minor league can help develop and promote.

  2. The most under-rated coach in football. I witnessed Singletary take over a 2-6 team(charging the Seahawks loss to Nolan) and instantly turn that team around in-season and bring them within one game of the playoffs. With attention to detail fundamentals and challenging the team to their core.

    His Achilles heel was his offensive staff. I think all of those coaches are out of football right now.

  3. I love it….thats how the USFL started…get some coaches who have been in the business & any football knows. NEXT sign a few out of the NFL players that want to still play….surround them with any of the thousands of football players that cant latch onto the NFL. It’s great formula…KEEP IT SIMPLE.

  4. “Can not play with him, Can not win with him. Can not coach with him”

  5. There’s a couple of coaches up there in years that will get run over on the sideline.They’d better coach from the booth.
