Alliance of American Football – Week 2 Preview

It’s Week 2 in the Alliance! After an opening weekend that probably went as most people expected, we’ll see if the start-up “spring” football league can continue to find its way into the United States’ sports conscience.

Last weekend, the league was mostly alone, with only basketball and hockey competing for eyeballs (at least on television). This weekend, NBA All-Star Game festivities will be front and center, and the Daytona 500 will also kick off the NASCAR season on Sunday. Will this be enough to impact local attendance? And can the Alliance avoid the ratings slip that befell the XFL after its huge opening back in 2001?

Alliance of American Football – Week 1 Leaders

AAF Stat Leaders

The first weekend of the American of Alliance Football (AAF) has come and gone, and while we are still trying to figure out who is going to be great (we have a favorite team), we can take a look at the league leaders after one game to see how things are shaping up.


Our passing leader after one game is quarterback John Wolford of the Arizona Hotshots. Among qualifiers (passers with at least 20 attempts), he currently leads the league in all three passing categories, with 275 yards, four touchdowns, and a quarterback rating of 139.3 (out of 158.3). This performance was enough to earn Wolford the inaugural Offensive Player of the Week award for the AAF.

By quarterback rating (using the NFL formula), here’s how the eight qualifiers stack up currently (stats courtesy of game reports; quarterback rating via author calculation):
