Daily Ticket: XFL Week 2 recap with Mark Drumheller


Mark Drumheller (@x_drumheller) joined Monday’s The Daily Ticket with Sean Brace on Fox Sports The Gambler.  Coming off a 4-0 week, Drumheller gave his insight into which QB’s are separating themselves. Cardale Jones and P.J. Walker have their teams on top of their divisions and are early favorites for MVP, while Matt McGloin’s meltdown has NY searching for answers. The discussion turns to the coaches, as Bob Stoops and Jim Zorn leaned on the running game to secure wins this weekend. Drumheller details some trends as 75% of teams decreased their pass ratio from Week 1 to Week 2.  A significant factor in the totals this weekend was a 21% point after touchdown conversion rate. They wrap up with some early Week 3 matchups. Can “The Wizard” work his magic for another perfect weekend? Be sure to tune in Thursday at 4:20 for all his predictions and analysis on this weekend’s games.

Today’s recap includes:

  • Cardale Jones and P.J. Walker’s traits that have them both in the early MVP conversation.
  • Bob Stoops big second-half adjustment that opened up the scoring.
  • Coaches’ conservative nature on PAT conversions.
