Orlando, we have a problem. The Orlando Guardians are currently 0-4 and things keep getting worse. Orlando recently suffered a 44-16 loss to the Houston Roughnecks. Orlando had an opportunity to avenge their close loss to the Arlington Renegades a week earlier. However, Guardians fans saw the same things that have been plaguing the team all season.
The XFL is fairly new and sloppy football has been played. Teams have had poor performances. However, most of the teams in the XFL have found momentum. The Guardians have been stuck in park and haven’t left their metaphorical garage.
The Orlando Guardians haven’t been able to win games and show they are competitive. Through four weeks of the season, the Guardians have been outscored 117-49. Orlando hasn’t scored more than 16 points as well. Quarterback Paxton Lynch and the offense have struggled to move the ball when it counts. Lynch has passed for 701 yards, thrown 4 touchdowns and 1 interception. The Guardian’s skill players have failed to consistently make game-changing plays. The offense has been held back by penalties and miscommunication between the quarterback and wide receivers.
The Guardian’s defense has been awful early in the season. Orlando’s defense has struggled to slow down offenses and has looked lost on the gridiron. Giving up 44 points is never good for a football team trying to win. Defenses are required to limit scoring opportunities.
How Can the Orlando Guardians Improve?
Orlando must make adjustments and improve. The Guardians have six games left and need to figure out how to get out of their garage. Head Coach Terrell Buckley needs to dissect both sides of the ball. Buckley can devise a plan to turn the Guardian’s season around. Buckley knows his team can play better and challenge other XFL squads. It all starts with looking within and facing the music.
Orlando hits the road to play the Las Vegas Vipers on March 18. The Guardians will be hungry for their first win.
