Former NFL RB Trent Richardson rushes for two TDs in AAF debut

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

However, Hackenberg believed entering Sunday's game that improvement was on the way.

When the Legends take the Spectrum Stadium field against Steve Spurrier's Orlando Apollos, however, they'll do so with a head coach who's held that position for only a month, and they also won't have the offensive coordinator they expected after Michael Vick stepped down this week. The dude is not very good at quarterback (by professional standards). The game was vintage Spurrier, with a mic catching him delivering the play call to the quarterback with the conclusion: "Tell him to catch it this time".

That kind of hit might not go over in the National Football League, but this is the AAF and initial ratings were promising. CBS Sports Network will broadcast a game once a week throughout the duration of the 10-week season.

He is now 3-of-11 for 20 yards and an interception.

It's very likely that this strong public outcry is one of the primary factors for Amazon to be allegedly rethinking its plans. The source said New Jersey officials have not been given any indication that Amazon is considering moving out of NY .

Overall, it was kind of fun, with Sunday promising the debut of former San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary as the coach of the Memphis Express in a 4 p.m. 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. Patriots fans might recall that he has a history of influencing rule changes; after Bill Belichick's defense manhandled the Indianapolis Colts' offense in 2004, Polian - then the Colts' president - prodded the National Football League until it restricted what defenders could do to receivers downfield. The game will end in a tie if neither team scores. When it comes to onside kicks if a team is trailing by more than 17 points with 5 minutes remaining in the game, they can attempt to convert a 4th-and-12 from their own 28-yard line.

With a 52-man roster featuring 29 players from nine Florida colleges, there's a local feel to the Apollos for fans of the hometown team.

Every player is paid the same three-year, non-guaranteed $250,000 contract with built-in bonuses for meeting performance goals.

None of those teams seemed relevant to what went on Saturday night, when a mostly full lower bowl in the Alamodome (no tickets were sold for the upper decks) went mad for all the pregame trappings of pro football: ugly green fake turf, a massive American flag for the anthem, a William Barret Travis-type guy on a galloping horse and pyrotechnics.
