Do Arlington have it in them to win the XFL Championship?

The Arlington Renegades have it in them to win the 2023 XFL Championship. The Arlington Renegades are a team packed with talent and have a built-in system for sustainable success.

The team will likely rely on their run game due to the dynamism of their running backs. This will do them a lot of favors, as their quarterback room is arguably one of the least experienced in the XFL. However, if they decide to throw the ball, they have so many options to throw to.

Players like JaCorey Sullivan and Jackson Anthrop are no pushovers, and they are backed up by former NFL hopefuls Lujuan Winningham and Jordan Smallwood. If the team wants to go big, they could sling the rock to XFL elite tight ends Sal Canella and Alex Ellis.

Furthermore, the Renegades can't be caught lacking on the defensive side of the ball, as they have ball hawks in De’Vante Bausby, Shakur Brown, and the ever-reliable Rahim Moore at safety. The defense's job will be made easier by a super-skilled offensive line led by Darta Lee and Brian Folkerts.

The Renegades will be coached by XFL veteran Bob Stoops, the only returning coach for the 2023 season, and that is a significant advantage heading into the season. There is a reason why the Renegades are the odds-on favorites to win it all come the end of the season, and their roster is a significant reason why.
