If you saw new Washington coach Steve Spurrier hold court … you’d be watching a master at work. If he’s half as good on Sundays as he is handling people and deflecting the tough questions, it won’t take the Redskins long to win the NFC East.
Here’s what’s going to be very interesting about Spurrier: He’s not going to change one bit from being the iconoclast he was at Florida. He will enjoy being an outsider, and nothing will change that. In many ways, he’s so much like Jimmy Johnson — his own guy who no one, not even a rich owner used to getting his own way at everything, will be able to change.
