Former Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg makes his AAF debut with Memphis Express

Quarterback Mike Bercovici, who played collegiately at Arizona State and spent a short amount of time on the Cardinals' practice squad, was lit up by a defender.

Similar to Saturday night's defensive struggle between San Antonio and San Diego, Memphis-Birmingham was a rock fight for about three quarters The Iron lead 9-0, but were absolutely stout on defense. The AAF feels like its on to something and with cooperation from the NFL, there could be some serious weight to this new league in the years to come if the play gets better.

The only show to draw better numbers all night on broadcast TV was "America's Got Talent".

Former Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg never could hack it in the National Football League, and now he's taken his game to the AAF. They saw The Head Ball Coach, a.k.a Steve Spurrier bring his "fun and gun offense", that excited Florida Gators fans for years to Orlando as his Apollos flew past the Atlanta Legends 40-6. "I think we had a pretty good crowd, 20,000 wasn't bad". J. K. McKay, the head of football operations for the Alliance, told Pro Football Talk that the league will put an emphasis on keeping the players within the area they played college football.

On top of those changes, the AAF actually has ruled out kicking FGs in overtime, hoping for a faster and higher-scoring game. Just seconds after the broadcast team returned their focus to the game, an errant Logan Woodside pass fell into Brooks' hands.

In stark contrast to the thousands who tailgate in a festive atmosphere before UCF games in the fall, only a smattering of fans mingled in a plaza near the 44,000-seat stadium on a cloudy and windy evening.

Nevertheless, this is great news for the AAF and bodes well for the future of the league.

Though Brooks played well Saturday night, his efforts were not enough to carry the Fleet over the much stronger Commanders, as San Antonio left the Alamodome with a 15-6 victory.

The team plays their home opener at Rice-Eccles Stadium on February 23, but the Stallions will play their first game ever on February 10 when they travel to play the Arizona Hotshots. Ratings will be harder when the games are on CBS Sports Network and not CBS in primetime.
