    Lightbulb Spurrier=Martz?

    With Steve Spurrier entering the NFL, things could get a bit interesting. Although many think that he isn't taking his job in the NFL seriously, it could be a simple misunderstanding. He has been compared to Martz various times, as their offensive approach is similar.

    Read this article about the two coaches. I think you'll find it very intriguing.

    I'm hoping that the fun-and-gun offense will become more popular, as many offenses have become very dull and bland around the NFL. Thankfully, the Rams aren't one of those teams that have fallen into the conservative trap. The NFL just isn't that fun to watch anymore, hence the term 'No Fun League'. The only reason defenses have been the winning factor in the NFL recently is because most offenses just aren't willing to take risks and have fun.

    The main problem with spurrier is he's all hype right now....he's got a lot to prove, especially with that contract - which i still say he hasn't earned yet.

    Snyder is big on names, right now spurrier is just a name....he has to prove himself.

    DJRamFan,

    I Also Remember A College Coach (From Oregon) Who Was HYPED UP !!!
    And If I Remember Right, He Didn't Do So Well !!

    Remember Rich Brookes (**shudder**) !!!

    But - Steve Spurrier Will Have A Lot More Talented Players To Work With Than Mr. Brookes Had.
    Also - Steve Spurrier Has A GREAT Defensive Minded Assisstant Head Coach, Which Will Probably Win Him Some Games This Year.

    Remember The Redskins Were In the Hunt For A Play-Off Spot Up Until The End of The Season Last Year.

    This Could Be A Good Year For Him !!!

    Just My Thoughts !!

    There's been a lot of coaches that have tried the jump, some successful others not. The ones that usually are successful are the ones that know their roles- they know they are new and have a lot to learn.

    Spurrier has an awesome defensive coordinator - this year - he should be gone next.

    I like college coaches that make the jump to the NFL. While not all are successful, many add a great deal of excitement to the game. Rich Brooks may not have had a great record while with the Rams, but he always made the games interesting. Also, the talent that Brooks had to work with ranked up there with some Division I AA colleges. It was pathetic. Vince Lombardi would have struggled with that team.

    And a lot of the "talent" Spurrier is bringing in would rival the Rams back then! LOL! Wuerfel and company might be "Awful and company." Signing free agents that were busts as draftees isn't my idea of building a winner. Martz gets the nod in this one. He had the sense to go out and get the right people for the job. Spurrier's choices have been "spurious" at best.

    If Spurrier makes it it will not be for a year or two. The ex-Florida players he is going after will have to teach his system to the existing team. Big learning curve.

    Not to mention the frustration from the non-Gators when they see others get the system so easily and appear to be "Coach's Guys"....

    It seems the Redskins will never have good team chemistry...

    Spurrier's "system" may have run roughshod over college defenses, but I think they will have problems against pro defenses that are more skilled and sophisticated. Remember Jimmy Johnson's first couple of years with Dallas? Dorothy! We're not in Kansas anymore! LOL!!
