Christian Hackenberg Struggles In AAF Debut

Christian Hackenberg Struggles In AAF Debut

There's the NFL Draft, and training camps, and the preseason, and spring games for college teams, but there's no football with any sort of stakes for half a year.

I don't think I've ever thrown the football this good.

The league's inaugural games kicked off this past weekend, pitting all eight teams against each other. This gives us the flexibility to reward the player that best deserves it across multiple positions, rather than shoehorning in somebody just to fit a slot receiver or cornerback role.

California pulls most National Guard troops from U.S.-Mexico border
Then-California Senate leader Kevin De Leon and 26 state legislators urged Brown to end the National Guard agreement. About 100 troops will continue working with the federal government combating transnational drug and gun smuggling.

He also had a problem with keeping the AAF's mic'd-up quarterbacks feature safe for daytime broadcasts. A quick scan of the league's eight teams reveals at least 19 former Patriots - including something called Steve Beauharnais - now are on rosters.

In what can only be considered a kind assessment, CBS Sports Network's halftime tweet of the quarterback comparison suggested Birmingham's defense "put the clamps on Hackenberg and the Express offense". Brandon Silvers replaced him late in the fourth quarter, and promptly threw an interception on his first drive. On Sunday, he took the field as the starting quarterback for the Memphis Express.

The AAF's debut went head-to-head with a primetime matchup between the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, led by Russell Westbrook, and the Houston Rockets, led by James Harden.
