Former Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis will cover AAF with NFL Network this spring

"Well, one team needs to do their job and get the job done.  That's what it takes in this game, getting the job done by doing your job.  If you do your job and get the job done, you will see improvement every week by doing your job.  I saw some good things out there.  Mostly guys working their butt's off to get the job done. *clap clap clap*"

Awesome, but they need to work their tails off, not butts. And they need to do better. Just do better. Barney Rubble laugh.

Many laughed at me when I said Marvin will never get another HC job some years back, dude can't even catch on a team as a position coach

 

He is wasn't so condescending the last 15 years I would feel sorry for him but he carried himself like he was a 5 time Super Bowl coach

The whole organization acted that way.  It will be nice having coaches that want to prove something.

Yeah. I took my family to training camp at Georgetown back in 2010, when we got TO.

Afterwards I had my young twins standing by me holding footballs to sign and I said 

to Marvin "Hey Marvin, we came all the way from Wisconsin to see you all!" He walked right past

us without even turning his head like he owed me money or something.

Seriously, that is when you make young kids fans forever.  The day Billy Kilmer handed me 4 quarters and told me to buy him a pack of Kool Filter Kings from the Red Maple's (http://www.theredmaple.com/)  cig machine is the day I became a Saints Fan forever. Can't blow off the kids at training camp or the local restaurant/bar.

Bill could have thought you were the bartender. I think he was drunk most of the time he played. Loved that guy, though

Poor guy took a beating in New Orleans.  Did very well in Washington. He was a good dude though, always had time for the fans.

Alliance of American Football TV Schedule: What time, channel are Saturday's games? (2/9/19)
Today Today 8:01 AM

By Kevin Manahan kmanahan@njadvancemedia.com

The Alliance of American Football (AAF) will kick off its inaugural season on Saturday. The opening weekend of action will feature four games and all eight teams.


Several notable former NFL players will suit up for the new venture, including former Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg, former Giants safety Will Hill and former Eagles wide receiver Josh Huff.

 

Here's a look at this weekend's games:

Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019

 

Atlanta Legends at Orlando Apollos, 8 p.m., CBS
Announcers: Andrew Catalon (play-by-play), Gary Danielson (analyst), Melanie Collins (reporter)

 

San Diego Fleet at San Antonio Commanders, 8 p.m., CBS
Announcers: Spero Dedes (play-by-play), Trent Green (analyst), Tiki Barber (analyst), Jamie Erdahl (reporter)

 

Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019

 

Memphis Express at Birmingham Iron, 4 p.m., CBS Sports Network
Announcers: Ben Holden (play-by-play), Adam Archuleta (analyst), John Schriffen (reporter)

 

Salt Lake Stallions at Arizona Hotshots, 8 p.m., NFL Network
Announcers: Dan Hellie (play-by-play), Marvin Lewis (analyst), Maurice Jones-Drew (reporter)

 

When the eight-team AAF kicks off this weekend, there will be no kickoffs as a nod to player safety and one of many twists to make games faster.

There will be plenty of other differences between the NFL and the AAF, which was founded by Bill Polian, a Hall of Famer and former NFL general manager, and Charlie Ebersol, a longtime TV and film producer.


Among them will be a ninth member of the officiating crew, called a SkyJudge who will be in the press box and can instantly correct "obvious and egregious" officiating errors, like the one that marred the NFC championship game. Overtime will be different, too.

The AAF opens Saturday with the San Diego Fleet visiting the San Antonio Commanders and the Atlanta Legends at the Orlando Apollos.

Games continue Sunday with the Memphis Express visiting the Birmingham Iron and the Salt Lake Stallions at the Arizona Hotshots.

Those games will start without kickoffs. There will still be a coin toss, with the winner deciding whether to receive or defer. The team that gets the ball will simply send out its offense to start from its 25.

"The players got used to it very quickly," Pereira said in a phone interview from his home in Sacramento. "It's a bit of a timesaver. Our goal is to play in 2 1/2 hours."

Perhaps the most timely change is the SkyJudge, who is able to use real-time technology to correct clear errors involving player safety anytime during a game and pass interference inside of five minutes left in the fourth quarter.

The SkyJudge was already in place before the non-call late in the NFC championship game that pretty much cost New Orleans a spot in the Super Bowl. NFL officiating chief Al Riveron called Saints coach Sean Payton after the game and admitted the game officials missed the helmet-to-helmet hit and pass interference penalty by Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman.

Pereira said it was modeled in part after the college targeting rule, which allows replay to step in and call targeting even if was not called on field, or take it off if was called but wasn't not really targeting.

Also gone are onside kicks and point-after kicks. When teams score touchdowns, they must try a two-point conversion. Field goals are still OK, except in overtime.

The play clock will be reduced from 40 seconds to 35 seconds.

The AAF will also go back to the original NFL replay scheme of giving each team two challenges, and that's it. That means no time-consuming video reviews for turnovers and touchdowns.

While onside kicks are out, "onside conversions" are in, if a team is trailing by 17 points or for either team inside of five minutes remaining in the game.

So, rather than trying an onside kick, a team must convert a fourth-and-12 from its 28 in order to keep the ball.

Pereira said teams like that change, too.

"It was an exciting play in these preseason games. You get one play and if you reach the 40, you keep ball. If not, the ball goes over to the other team. It can be punitive. If you throw an incomplete pass, the receiving team gets the ball at the 28-yard line. At least it gives teams an opportunity."


In overtime, each team will get the ball once, first-and-goal from the 10. Teams have to score a touchdown and go for two points. Field goals aren't allowed. The other team then gets a series and can either match the other team or win.

Games can end in ties.

"We're not afraid of ties," Pereira said. "It creates some excitement."

Logan Woodside and Derron Smith are going to be playing for the San Antonio Commanders.

Not sure about any other former Bengals and where they're playing yet ...

Sounds like a good fit for Marvin.

I have been a lifelong fan of the Birmingham Iron!

I started liking them because of their uniforms.
