Defenders Week 2 Wrap Up and Look Forward

by Bee Jay Glosson

Week 2 was the battle of the undefeated, DC vs NY and Houston vs St. Louis. The Defenders certainly didn’t disappoint in their game, unfortunately their opponent did. DC absolutely embarrassed the Guardians, or was that Matt McGloin’s interview at the half? I’m getting ahead of myself, lets see what happened to get us here. 

Well, how about this stat line, 8 of 19 for 44 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INT. Yeah, that was Guardians QB, Matt McGloin’s, day and at the half.

With the XFL’s on the field interviews we got a nugget of true golden proportions from the QB himself. When asked what the team needed to do to turn things around in the second half, McGloin offered his insight “We need to change the whole entire gameplan at halftime. Its embarrassing as an offense.”

It was embarrassing, except it was more than just the gameplan.

McGloin couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat at the bottom of the ocean. He blamed the gameplan instead of himself. He had 32 yards passing at the half. The game for the Guardians didn’t fair much better than McGloin’s stat line though as the Defenders would go on to post the first shutout in XFL history in its inaugural season.

Enough about the Guardians and their problems. Lets talk about the undefeated Defenders and how their QB, Cardale “12 Gauge” Jones, leads the league in passing yards and has found a way to guide the Defenders to a 2-0 start. Throwing for 2 TDs and 276 yards, Jones has lead the Defenders to the top of the power rankings in the XFL.

It’s not just Jones that has the Defenders doing so great, the defense has been playing lights out all year. With a pick-6 in both of their first 2 games, along with blocked punts and all around great defensive plays, the Defenders are only allowing an average of 9 points a game after giving the Guardians a goose egg to ride home with in week 2.

Riding a 2-0 attitude and heading to L.A. for the first road test of the season, the Defenders will face the winless Wildcats. L.A. looks to go for the upset and send D.C. home with their first L of the season.

Is that going to happen? Probably not. But this is a “Revenge” game of sorts as former Wildcats defensive captain Anthony Johnson and WR Rashad Ross who face off against their former team as they try to help the Defenders go to 3-0.

Around the league we saw the Houston Roughnecks continue their undefeated season as P.J. Walker maintains his M.V.P. campaign with 3 TD performance to lead his team past the Battlehawks. Pushing his total TD’s to 7 which matches or beats every team in the XFL. He is literally a 1 man wrecking crew.

The Dragons secured the largest XFL crowd this year as more than 28k fans packed Century Link field in Seattle to watch the Dragons dismantle the Vipers to move to 1-1 as the Vipers slip to 0-2 on their season.

Last, but not least, the Dallas Renegades got their franchise QB, Landry Jones, back for their second game and we saw the Renegades hand the Wildcats their second loss of the season. With the win Landry Jones becomes the first XFL QB to pass for over 300 yards in a game this season.

Every team will have played at least one road game after week 3 so I think we will start to see true power rankings as it wont be just home results getting calculated for some of the teams at the top. As always Defenders fans, be loud and be proud, shields up as your Defenders continue to put the best product on the football field for you to watch.
