It looked more like a pass from a young kid than former NFL QB and Penn State star.

The original XFL also had a strongly rated Week 1, but the Alliance of American Football is off to a good start.

He threw an interception with a release that I don't even know how to describe. "Never", Hackenberg said, via John Luciew of PennLive.com.

Wolford went 18-for-29 with 275 yards and four touchdowns.

The AAF is a much higher caliber of play than a lot of people might realize, and Hackenberg clearly isn't ready after week one.
