SAN DIEGO (AP) — Nearly four decades removed from a stint
in the short-lived USFL Youth Customized Washington Redskins Jerseys , Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian will preside over the opening weekend of the newest spring league, the Alliance of American Football."It's one more challenge at the end of a long career," said Polian, 76, who co-founded the AAF with Charlie Ebersol, a TV and film producer whose father, Dick, defined NBC Sports' programming for more than two decades and created "Sunday Night Football."Polian simply wasn't ready for retirement after an NFL career in which he helped build Buffalo, Carolina and Indianapolis into Super Bowl teams, with the Colts winning the NFL championship after the 2006 season. This alternative league seems to stand a better chance of surviving than others, such as the USFL and the World League, because of the people and philosophies involved."I've been pretty vocal about channeling the thoughts of so many of my friends in the NFL, in coaching and player personnel, that since the demise of NFL Europe , it's needed a developmental league, where players can come in and learn and develop skills," Polian said. "When Charlie approached me about this, we discussed it at great length and finally I said, ‘I'm going to put my effort where my mouth is and see where we can make this work."Polian will catch half of the opening-weekend games in the eight-team league. He'll be in San Antonio on Saturday night to watch the Commanders play the San Diego Fleet — broadcast by CBS in prime time — and in Tempe on Sunday night to see the Arizona Hotshots host the Salt Lake Stallions. The other opening-weekend games are the Atlanta Legends at the Orlando Apollos on Saturday night and the Memphis Express at the Birmingham Iron on Sunday night.Polian said the USFL took about 22 months to get up and running, and the expansion Carolina Panthers took about 19 months."We've done this in nine months because of so many great former NFL people who are excited to do it, excited to be in it," Polian said. "We started with nothing and we're going to open it up on Saturday with eight teams playing what I think will be pretty good football."That's a credit to the people involved. We could not have done it if we had not had quality former NFL people."The AAF is indeed stuffed with executives, general managers, coaches and players who've had various NFL experience.Hall of Fame linebacker and Super Bowl winner Mike Singletary is Memphis' coach.Mike Martz, who was offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams' "Greatest Show on Turf" Super Bowl-winning team in the 1999 season, returns to the sidelines as coach in San Diego, which two seasons ago lost the NFL's Chargers to Los Angeles.Mike Vick is the offensive coordinator in Atlanta.Dennis Erickson is head coach in Salt Lake and will face off against Arizona's Rick Neuheisel.The AAF even has the Head Ball Coach himself, Steve Spurrier Washington Redskins Womens T-Shirt , who is coaching the Apollos.Hall of Famer Willie Lanier is an executive in the league office, where former Pittsburgh Steelers stars Hines Ward (head of football operations) and Troy Polamalu (head of player relations) also work.Mike Pereira and Dean Blandino are officiating consultants. Pereira helped develop the unique rules that include no kickoffs, no extra-point tries, overtime rules that call for each team to get one possession and a ninth official, the SkyJudge, who from his perch in the press box can instantly correct "obvious and egregious" officiating errors, like the one that marred the NFC championship game.San Diego hired so well that it lost quarterback Josh Johnson to the Washington Redskins in December and offensive coordinator Jon Kitna to the Dallas Cowboys as their quarterbacks coach.Ebersol said the AAF players can leave for the NFL between April 29 and Dec. 29. He said the AAF released 71 players to the NFL and 35 came back and are playing. The AAF says that of its more than 600 players signed to date, 98 percent have been in the NFL at some point over the past 18 to 24 months.Polian and Ebersol said every NFL team had scouts in San Antonio when all the teams recently held training camp and then each played an exhibition game."We're not competitive, we're complementary," Ebersol said. "We look at the NFL as, we're going to support your existence, let them play in your league, put content on your network. They're a partner. The goal is to improve and support the ecosystem of football."Games will be carried on CBS, NFL Network and Turner.Ebersol is backed by some heavyweight investors from Silicon Valley and also MGM Washington Redskins Hats , and has told them he has a five-to-seven-year business model.The Alliance has built a proprietary tech platform that will allow for a real-time, rewards-based system of integrated gaming and in-game wagering for fans in states where sports gambling is legalized.In a nice touch, Kurt Warner is the pregame and halftime analyst for Saturday night's games on CBS. After being cut by Green Bay, Warner was working in an Iowa grocery store before playing in the Arena Football League and ultimately landing with the Rams, leading them to a Super Bowl victory and being voted NFL MVP in 1999."Think about how many Kurt Warners are hiding among those kids who don't get to the NFL," Ebersol said. "Those are the guys we're finding."FOX Fantasy AutoForm a Racing Team, Compete for PrizesPlay Now!The 5 O’Clock Club: Redskins iron man - Ryan Kerrigan The 5 o’clock club is published Wednesday to Saturday during the season, and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Ryan Kerrigan career statistics (2011-2017)From 2011 to 2017, Ryan Kerrigan started 112 of a possible 112 games.Add to that his two playoff games in 2012 and 2015 versus the Seahawks and the Packers, and his three regular season starts in 2018 against the Cardinals, Colts and Packers and the Redskins’ 2011 first round pick (16th overall) has 115 consecutive regular season starts — 117 including playoffs.The fact that he’s made it through more than 7 seasons without missing a single opening whistle is pretty astounding.But equally impressive is what he’s done with his time on the field. Kerrigan is not a specialty pass-rusher; he is a stand up outside linebacker in a 3-4 base defense who is frequently called upon to drop into coverage.Despite that, Ryan Kerrigan has been a model of consistency when it comes to sacking the quarterback.Across 7 full seasons, he’s been credited with 71.5 sacks, or about 10.2 per year. Damn Skippy!And it’s not like he’s got any outliers.His three lowest sack totals were in his first three seasons Washington Redskins Womens Hoodie , when he accounted for 7.5, 8.5 and 8.5 sacks. That would be a career for many players, but Kerrigan simply got better, piling up 47 sacks in the past 4 years (nearly 12 per season!).But wait, there’s more!Twenty two forced fumbles in seven seasons.Let me repeat that... he’s averaging double-digit sacks, and forcing three fumbles per year (and he’s never had a season without at least two forced fumbles).Just in case you thought I was done, I want to stitch together three columns in Ryan Kerrigan’s career statistics for you.Look at “INT”, “IR YDS” and “TD” for a moment. You’ll see the following:2011 1-9-12012 1-28-12017 1-24-1Yep.Three career interceptions — every one a pick-6!!Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty ImagesSo, let me recap:Kerrigan hasn’t missed a start in his entire 7 year careerHe averages: 10 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 3 passes defended, and 39 tackles per seasonand about every other year he grabs a pick-6Thank you Mike Shanahan, wherever you are.Links:Every play by Ryan Kerrigan vs Green BayIs Ryan Kerrigan “elite”?Photo by Rick Stewart/Getty Images
