AAF Week 2 Sunday open thread

Can Sunday be better than Saturday?

Remember when I said the AAF brought us good football? Yeah, about that. Saturday’s games weren’t very inspiring, but sometimes you can just get a dud.

So let’s turn to Sunday’s crop of games and see what the offer us.

First up is the Orlando Apollos visiting the San Antonio Commanders. The Apollos don’t have many former 49ers on it, but one name may sound familiar on their defense. Keith Reaser. Reaser began as one of Trent Baalke’s redshirts in 2014 and got some playing time in 2015 and 2016. Not much to say other than it wasn’t much and he was released in mid September 2017—so he survived the Kyle Shanahan/John Lynch roster purge, but couldn’t make the roster. The Commanders didn’t have any 49ers players that caught my eye when I glanced at the roster. Regardless on the lack of 49ers, this will be the game of the day as (in my opinion) the Apollos and the Commanders were two of the more fun teams to watch in Week 1.

This evening we have the Atlanta Legends visiting the San Diego Fleet (love that nickname). Both rosters are devoid of talent from the 49ers and weren’t at all the most entertaining in the first week. Mike Singletary’s Memphis Express were by far the stinkers in Week 1 (0 points) but these two are next on the pecking order. It’s too bad the AAF can’t flex these games around. Again, we only saw these teams for one week and much like the NFL, the first weeks of games can be sloppy and non-indicative of the talent on the team. Let’s see what happens here.
