Imagine Chambers, Booker, Boston, and McMichael darting all over the field. With a few tweaks to his system that could be one of the nastiest offenses the league has ever seen. 4 pro-bowl players receiving (yes, one's a TE, and a marvelous one!)
Do you really think he'll pass on going back to Florida??

I dunno, seems like things are falling in line perfectly for him. He'd be crazy to not go back to Fla. and instead come back to the NFL.

If he were to come back to the NFL, he should come back as an offensive coordinator, do that for 2-3 years and maybe then try to get a HC job. Of course I know that wouldn't happen, but that would be the smart way to go and let him learn the ropes of the NFL a little better.

He didn't even know how to structure training camp when he first came to D.C., I attribute our 7-9 record that year all to Marvin Lewis, he was basically the de facto head coach that year in my opinion. After Lewis left the team just crumbled with Spurrier on his own.

Maybe Spurrier could succeed in the NFL someday, but right now he's got alot to learn and he would be better off going back to college.

Spurrier is to Florida what Gibbs is to Washington. Spurrier would be crazy not to go back to Flordia.

I'm surprised, I wonder if he'll stick with college or if he's going to give the NFL another shot.

If he does come back to the NFL, it will be interesting to see what he learned from his time here.

It will also be interesting to see if he makes significant changes to his offense and the way he handles a team in general.

I think he's waiting on Miami's job to open up.

Sorry, I just don't think Spurrier will cut it in the NFL as a Head Coach. You may not have to be a workaholic but you do have to be detail oriented to some degree. It is not all about diagraming plays - It's about preparing to win and preparation did not seem to be SS's strong suit. I don't care how many great assistants you put around him, SS will always be far to lax in terms of discipline, detail, and film study to ever succeed in the NFL.

I think he would make an amazing offensive coordinator though.

Matty. He'll have R. Williams as trade bait and a #1 pick. The kid Miami traded for out of St. Louis is a good back. ANother candidate is Larry Johnson.

Oh, and I told you he wasn't going back =p
