Former Raiders QB Matt McGloin shines in XFL debut

Two former Raiders quarterbacks were set to make their XFL debut in the league's inaugural weekend in Connor Cook and Matt McGloin but only the man known as The Red Rifle actually saw the field. McGloin was signed to the New York Guardians in the allocation process ahead of the XFL Draft because he is considered a Tier-1 QB by the upstart league.

Having only made six NFL starts you would not typically think of him as Tier-1 type of guy but that is more than the rest of his Tier-1 peers combined.

The XFL’s assessment of McGloin’s abilities were not far off as he lead the Guardians on a number of scoring drives against a Vipers team that came in to New York’s home as a 2.
