Default Gregg Ward

First of all don't laugh! Ward played for San Antonio tonight and I have to say that he was outstanding. Both teams were well drilled and it was a decent game although it seemed like there were many undersized players on the field. Hey, it's football anyway. Ward must have caught about 10 passes including a great 50 yard bomb in full stride with his fingertips that I don't think most receivers would have caught. Very impressive! If he continues like this he's going to get another look this preseason. He really looked good.

60, not bustin here but Ward has NFL talent. Unfortunately for him it is practice squad or maybe bottom of the roster talent, hell he may even have a few good games in him like a Josh Huff or Shelton Gibson, but he isn't going to be a difference maker in the NFL for anyone in my opinion. The AAF is like the USFL, CFL, Arena league or NFL Europe in that there are a few guys who can make the transition to the NFL. Maybe he will but I'm just not sure Ward is one of them

I think even the NFL draft and Pro Bowl still draw bigger ratings than most games from the NBA, NHL or MLB, so really anything’s possible. With the NFL backing this new AAF, who knows. They just might last a long time. I’m sure it’ll be better than the XFL.

I watched about 20 minutes. It’s basketball season in my mind now. AAF is not for me. And when baseball starts I watched nearly every Royals game... not joking.

Please don't ever compare anybody to Josh Huff again ND. That's all that I want to say about it. He's in my top 5 Eagle shit list.

Look at my opening thread ND. I was using him to shit on the league. I was wrong though because this actually is pretty good football compared to the WWF shit they put out years ago with He Hate Me and the other crap. It turns out that He Hate Me was a decent player and got picked up by another team for a couple of years after the Eagles cut him but he's the only one that ever made anything of himself.
