The only position that Spurrier would be qualified for on this current staff would be water boy.
QB coach or O coordinator. I'd take him in a heartbeat. Spurrier could be an amazing head coach with a little grooming. Get some veteran guys around him and he'll pick it up quick.

Did you catch this article?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2004Mar24.html

Here's some highlights

Quote:
"After watching Steve Spurrier operate and now watching this,'' one team official said, "it's like night and day.''
Quote:
Spurrier's shortcomings as an NFL coach were on display from the outset. His practices were loosely run. He spent most of his time hanging out by the quarterbacks. He could be seen chatting with visitors or trying to bounce footballs off the ground and catch them when special-teams drills were being conducted. He regularly couldn't recall the names of his defensive players. When Redskins players received their game plan on Wednesdays during the season, more often than not they were surprised by what it lacked rather than amazed by what it contained.
Quote:
Only then was it clear, in retrospect, that it hadn't been about a learning curve and Spurrier didn't have anything up his sleeve. He had been overmatched from the outset, unwilling to put in the hours and make the changes to his way necessary for him to succeed in the NFL.

More quality information from the Washington Post! Your one stop shop for false news!

Ok so I guess the past two years with Spurrier was a mirage?

I think I've admitted Spurrier had more than his fair share of mistakes, but the guy is far from a football idiot. Put him in a system where he can concentrate on Offense only and get some good experience. He let Edwards control defense last year.

You believe everything the Washington Post publishes? I remember a few lies from the post as far as sports go.

I don't have to read the Post to see the joke of a coach Spurrier was.

I don't see any lies there, Spurrier often didn't know the names of his players and when he did he sometimes badly mispronounced them. He didn't put in the hours necessary, he did hang around the WR's and QB's and ignored the rest of the team, the gameplans were horrible, I don't get it, where's the untruths, Daseal?

Not sure i made myself clear, that article may have been true, but many articles out of the post weren't.

Spurrier needs another chance in a new town, hopefully he'll take it. I think he learned A LOT here, but since he wasn't strict enough, he could never be a head coach here again.

I think it'd be nice if we just put the Spurrier experience behind us. Yes, he knows football. No, he wasn't ready to be a head coach in the NFL. The question is does he even care to be.

I think it's only fair however Daseal, that you cite some specific examples of straight up lies from the Post

I'll work on it this weekend, Smoot. I remember they made up a bunch of stuff about a month or two before the site crashed. Once I finish my paper due at midnight tonight I'll go try to find the articles.
