"Hammerin" Hank Goldberg makes some AAF picks for week 2.....
Here are Goldberg's picks for Week 2 of the AAF (posted on Thursday):
Salt Lake Stallions at Birmingham Iron, Saturday, 2 p.m. (ET)
Salt Lake Stallions +7
The Stallions have a decent backup QB, a good running game, and a very strong front four. The Stallions' practice facility isn't truly ready, they're on the road for the second week in a row, yet they played pretty decently last week and didn't quit. They're playing a team that I don't think is going to be able to run up the score on them. The number is a little high. Take the points.
Arizona Hotshots at Memphis Express, Saturday, 8 p.m. (ET)
Arizona Hotshots -11.5
Memphis has no quarterback. The Express never came close to scoring a point last week. Arizona is loaded, and they've got a big-play wideout in Rashad Ross. He's a tremendous athlete. If they can get the ball to him, he's going to destroy defenses. Arizona has only three guys on its roster without some kind of NFL experience. GM Phil Savage worked the Senior Bowl -- they're a little bit ahead of the game. The Hotshots only finished with five healthy offensive linemen last week but they signed a couple of guys this week and they're confident it won't slow them down. They've got a very good QB, two good running backs, and a big target at tight end. Lay the points.
Orlando Apollos at San Antonio Commanders, Sunday, 4 p.m. (ET)
San Antonio Commanders +6
San Antonio has a good QB in Logan Woodside, he's a great athlete. They have two good running backs and a good tight end. While Steve Spurrier is ahead of everyone else offensively, I think the Apollos are going to be tested defensively. Should be a lot of scoring. Take the points.
Atlanta Legends at San Diego Fleet, Sunday, 8 p.m. (ET)
Atlanta Legends +9.5
San Diego shouldn't be laying this many points to anybody. The Fleet can't score; they're lost without Josh Johnson. The Legends have a good QB in Aaron Murray and he'll be the difference in getting this cover.
