Alex McGough is a mobile quarterback. He throws a tight spiral, but average under pressure. He's aggressive; and has the capability to take off if needed. But will have to work on throwing the ball away when the opportunity down field is not there.

He's been said to be the best on the field at times. The USFL will be his time to prove just that.
