Christian Hackenberg’s AAF debut was just as bad as you’d think

While the AAF's initial ratings were impressive for a fledgling league, they pale in comparison to the typical NFL audience. The new league's pre-game show did better than the game. The odds are against Hackenberg getting a second straight start after such a dismal debut, but it's safe to assume he'll get another chance to play at some point before the inaugural AAF season finishes.

The Alamodome claimed its first victim, as Mike Riley's Commanders bludgeoned the Fleet in their inaugural AAF game.

Former University of Houston QB-turned-WR Greg Ward hauled in five catches for 65 yards, and former Cowboy WR Mekale McKay shined as well in connecting with San Antonio QB Logan Woodside.

He threw an interception with a release that I don't even know how to describe.

The score also gave the Hotshots their first lead and they led their opponent, Salt Lake, 8-0 after a quarter in what became a 38-22 win over the Stallions at Sun Devil Stadium. Moore and Harris both entered the National Football League with the Broncos in 2011.

Hackenberg finished the game 10-for-23 for 87 yards and an interception, though to be fair he had a nice touchdown pass taken away by a formation penalty.

AAF Week 2 kicks off next Saturday, February 16th. The AAF has secured deals to broadcast the rest of its games for this debut season on a host of platforms including TNT, the NFL Network, CBSSN, and B/R Live.
