After two weeks of watching the XFL, I am super impressed with former Ohio State University quarterback Cardale Jones. The kid is undefeated in professional football (2-0) and undefeated in college. Add in the fact that he is dominating the XFL after two weeks, he has impressed me.

He has 511 passing yards, 4 touchdowns and has a 62 percent completion percentage.


Jones was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Los Angeles Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks. The crazy thing is I believe Jones is good enough to make any one of those rosters right now. The Bills have Matt Barkley as their back-up to Josh Allen, the Chargers just let Rivers walk and the Seahawks have no one behind Russell Wilson.

Jones is a massive quarterback at 6-5 and weighs 250 pounds. He is agile and can throw the ball deep with a flick of a wrist. He is impressive and deserves to be on an NFL team. I think the XFL is going to do this kid justice, because after two weeks he is the MVP.
