Hosts Albert and Richard discuss the AAF QB Draft, the picks for the SA Commanders, uniform reveals, and Jersey sales info!
We here at 210 Blitz would like to announce our official podcast titled The War Room. This will be another way we can provide news and coverage for everything Commander’s Football. Host will be myself Albert Delgado and Richard Cano. We appreciate any and all feedback. This is my first experience setting a podcast up as well as editing so give us a listen below!
The AAF has announced earlier today that their QB Draft labeled as the Protect or Pick Draft will be hosted live via CBS Sports and take place at the new Esports Arena Las Vegas at The Luxor on November 27, 2018 8pm ET/5pm PT.
The Alliance is purposing a unique spin with their Protect or Pick draft format, which will consist of four rounds and allow each team to either protect a QB meaning they are using their draft pick to keep a certain player on their current roster that was allocated via the player’s region. Alternatively, they can instead opt to pick, in which case they then wait till all other teams have elected their options to pick/protect, and via the draft order, they will be able to select a player from the pool of non protected QBs from any region.
Just ahead of the draft through November 12-14, the Alamo Dome will be host to the QB skills camp. The camp will give personnel groups from all Alliance teams a chance to better evaluate each QB before the draft.
I can’t imagine the Commanders not using their first protect option on QB Trevor Knight, but it will be interesting to see if they make moves on any players out of their current region.
You can find additional information, rules, and draft orders on the QB Draft here: AAF.com

As we continue to review the talent for San Antonio’s current roster we pick up where we left off at with the last 3 of 6 running backs for the Commanders. You can read about the first three RBs featured in this article here: RB pt.1
David Cobb 25 yrs 5′ 11″ in 229lbs
Cobb recently being cut from the Chicago Bears practice squad in 2017 was initially drafted by the Tennesse Titans in the 5th round of the 2015 draft. Cobb is the definition of a power back he can utilize his size alongside his low center of gravity to run through arm tackles and keep his feet moving at the point of contact to gain extra yards. In college, Cobb played for the Minnesota Golden Gophers where he would go on to rush for 2,893 yards and average 5.1 yards per carry with 20 TD from 2011-2014. Concerns for Cobb in his scouting report according to ESPN.com were issues with ball security and pass blocking. Those issues can be worked on with the proper coaching/training, and will not take away from the fact that Cobb will be an RB that can wear down opposing defenses in the late stages of a game.
Aaron Green 25 yrs 5′ 11″ 201lbs
Green, an undrafted RB from TCU would join the Rams practice squad in 2016. Green would later go on to join the Cowboys practice squad in 2017, and his NFL stint would end with being cut from the Bills practice squad in 2018. However, at TCU Green rushed for 2,426 yards along with 5.2 yards per carry accompanied with 20 TD. Green is one of the more shiftier backs on the roster and has one of the cleanest jump cuts that help him create space from defenders. Even with his quick feet Green according to scout reports has a problem with being hesitant when hitting a hole and not reliable on picking up blitz protection. Green like everyone else on the roster will get another chance at pro football with the AAF, and we will see what this scatback can do with his new opportunity with the Commanders.
Joshua Mcphearson 24 yrs 5′ 10″ 197lbs
Out of all the RBs on the current roster, Mcphearson is the only one without an extensive highlight reel. Now, this is no fault to Mcphearson as he was part of a crowded Penn State backfield that was spearheaded by 2018 2nd overall pick Saquon Barkley. We do however have film on his various practice sessions with Penn State via his youtube channel. Yes, I understand it may not be game-time situations, but Mcphearson does show an uncanny ability to have perhaps the best set of hands on this roster. He also shows excellent awareness and is as quick and shifty as any of the other backs on the team. Also, notice the video the description and how it says “A talent the people never got to see”. With that statement, I am going to dub Mcphearson as the WILD CARD and personally look forward to what he can do in the backfield for the Commanders.
The SA Alliance and AAF have officially announced the Commanders to be the official team name for San Antonio. The AAF wanted the team names within the league to be representative of the spirit of the cities and their inhabitants. Going with Commanders makes sense due to San Antonio having the Alamo and other missions throughout its infrastructure alongside various military bases. I was thinking the AAF was leaning towards the Defenders for the name, but Commanders has a nice ring to it as well. I also may be very biased in this case, but I dig the logo with the Alamo in the background, saber, and lone star representing Texas. Keep an eye out for when they drop the official gear for the team!
The AAF had announced the name and logo via Twitter below, and also posted an official video via YouTube:
