The XFL saw a successful re-launch a week ago, which featured several stadiums that were packed to the max and quality TV ratings to go along with intriguing rule changes and so-so football.

In Week 2, things took a dramatic turn for the worst as poor quarterback play dominated headlines, while chaos erupted for New York in D.C., attendance was down and TV ratings also dropped.

The XFL will have to quickly get a handle on things entering Week 3, but we’ll leave that to them. In the mean time, let’s take a look at how former members of the New York Giants fared in Week 2.

After a successful return to the sidelines in Week 1, former Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and his staff (which includes a few ex-Giants) were subject to complete chaos in Week 2.

Not only were the Guardians the first team to be shutout in the new XFL, but Gilbride’s quarterback, Matt McGloin, shredded the coaching staff during several sideline interviews.

On the field, Jarron Jones didn’t have his best game at offensive tackle and Damien Mama struggled. Meanwhile, tight end Jake Powell was targeted just once for a gain of five yards.

On the DC Side of things, running back Jhurell Pressley gained 32 yards on 11 carries (2.9 ypc), adding nine yards on two receptions.

Offensive linemen James O’Hagan and Malcolm Bunche flew somewhat under-the-radar, while defensive lineman Jay Bromley recorded three tackles (two for a loss) and one sack. Safety Rahim Moore also made a few key plays, recording two tackles, one pass defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery (which led to benches clearing).
