First of all, to the idiots who don’t think Texas is the best state in America, the XFL announced their eight teams and Texas has TWO of them:
For the non-mathematicians, that is 25% of the XFL teams in Texas. So, if there was any debate, this ends it. Texas is the go-to state for all things Football. Which in turn makes us the best state in America.
Now, to Tom “Savage” Savage.
Right now, he is fighting for a backup position in Detroit. But I know, Tom. Tom is not a backup. He’s a starter. He’s a guy who brings pizazz and flare to the QB position. Which is why I think he would be a perfect fit for the Houston Roughnecks. The Roughnecks are looking for a QB that will make a splash. Put asses in the seats. Tom is looking for a city where he has experience in and that will give him an oppotutniy to be a starter. Match made in heaven.
Only problem I see is that I hear Tom is not looking to take a team friendly deal. Quite the opposite actually. He is looking for a 7yr/$45K deal. Pretty steep. The Roughnecks will surely have to move some numbers and players around to make it work. But if they can finally bring a Championship football team to Houston, I think the risk is worth the reward.
