Steve Spurrier plans to be back on the sideline
ORLANDO Colt McCoy Jersey , Fla. (AP) if a proposed new professional league gets off the ground.The Orlando Alliance announced Saturday that it has hired Spurrier as its first head coach. Spurrier will coach in the planned Alliance of American Football.The Alliance is the creation of Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian and longtime TV and film producer Charlie Ebersol. The league plans to have eight teams and will play a 12-week season Feb. 9, 2019, and will be broadcast on CBS.Orlando is the first planned team site, and Spurrier is the first coach.The 72-year-old Spurrier says he’s ”fired up and ready to go.”Orlando has never had much success with startup football leagues.The Florida Blazers lasted only one season in the ill-fated World Football League during the 1970s, followed by several other short-lived teams: The Orlando Renegades of the United States Football League, the Orlando Thunder of the World League of American Football, the Orlando Rage of the infamous XFL, and the Florida Tuckers of the United Football League.Spurrier coached collegiately at Duke (1987-89), Florida (1990-2001) and South Carolina (2005-2015). The 1966 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback also coached the NFL’s Washington Redskins (2002-03).He is the fourth person to be inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach.PFF projects the Redskins to have the 12th best Offensive Line in the NFL in 2018 Pro Football Focus makes a living out of grading individual performance of NFL players.In the age of Twitter, they have found a marketing formula that really works for them in which they compile top rankings for players in very specific categories and send them out with flashy graphics on a Tweet.A marketing tactic that is a little more traditional is to write articles with standard rankings, and publish them — especially in the offseason.Some of these articles look back and some look ahead.In March we usually get the former type, the reviews, while July is the time for the latter Niles Paul Jersey , the previews.Recently, PFF published an article titled, NFL offensive line rankings: All 32 team’s units entering 2018.The article explains briefly how the rankings were arrived at:With that in mind, let’s have a look at the PFF Rankings for the NFC East Offensive lines.#1 Philadelphia EaglesProjected starting lineup:Left Tackle: Jason Peters, 86.4 overall grade Left Guard: Stefen Wisniewski, 74.8 Center: Jason Kelce, 91.3 Right Guard: Brandon Brooks, 88.3 Right Tackle: Lane Johnson, 86.2 2017 season-end rank: 1st (no change)There is a little projection here as we’re assuming nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters will return to form after tearing his ACL and MCL in October of last year. At age 36, Peters is no shoe-in to do so. If he does though, the Eagles bring back the league’s best tackle tandem along with a top-five center in Jason Kelce and top-10 guard in Brandon Brooks.#2 Dallas CowboysPROJECTED STARTING LINEUP:Left Tackle: Tyron Smith, 79.7 overall grade Left Guard: Connor Williams, 85.7* (2017 college grade) Center: Travis Frederick Shawn Lauvao Jersey , 90.8 Right Guard: Zack Martin, 92.2 Right Tackle: La’el Collins, 50.7 2017 season-end rank: 4th (+2)The great NFC East debate rages on with the Cowboys once again playing second fiddle. The three All-Pros aren’t enough to fill the two holes at left guard and right tackle – although those could be getting sealed this season. Rookie second-round pick Connor Williams should slate in nicely at left guard as we had a first-round grade for the Texas product even at tackle. At right tackle, La’el Collins rebounded after some early season struggles to at least flash some competent play down the stretch. If he can improve on his 51 total pressures allowed in 2017, they’re well on their way to earning back that No. 1 spot.#12 Washington RedskinsPROJECTED STARTING LINEUP:Left Tackle: Trent Williams, 82.1 overall grade Left Guard: Shawn Lauvao, 37.9 Center: Chase Roullier, 56.0 Right Guard: Brandon Scherff, 83.2 Right Tackle: Morgan Moses, 70.5 2017 season-end rank: 21st (+9)Injuries absolutely ravaged the Redskins offensive line in 2017, but this was one of the best lines in the NFL prior to last year. The two names to watch here are center Chase Roullier and right tackle Morgan Moses. Roullier was one of our favorite sleepers in the 2017 draft out of Wyoming yet only earned a 56.0 overall grade as a rookie in 457 snaps. Moses on the other hand had established himself as one of the best right tackles in the game before taking a step back with a 70.5 overall grade last season. They’ll need both at their best to crack the top 10 this year.#25 New York GiantsPROJECTED STARTING LINEUP:Left Tackle: Nate Solder, 75.7 overall grade Left Guard: Will Hernandez, 91.4* (2017 college grade) Center: Jon Halapio Dexter Manley Jersey , 44.0 Right Guard: Patrick Omameh, 53.6 Right Tackle: Ereck Flowers, 51.5 2017 season-end rank: 26th (+1)After making Nate Solder the highest paid tackle in football and drafting Will Hernandez in the second-round, the Giants offensive line has to be better than last year. Neither of those guys are sure-fire miracle workers though as Solder himself gave up 51 pressures a season ago (Ereck Flowers has averaged 58 a season for his career).A few random thoughtsBig Grinoes anybody seriously think that Trent Williams will not be the best tackle in the NFC East in 2018?The 37.9 rating for Shawn Lauvao is the lowest rank of the 20 players shown.Regardless of what you think of PFF rankings, isn’t it past time the Redskins find a good Left Guard?The commentary on Morgan Moses says, “Moses on the other hand had established himself as one of the best right tackles in the game before taking a step back with a 70.5 overall grade last season.”Given that the man was playing most of the season on two ankles held together with Scotch tape and bubble gum, this is pretty impressive.He should be a bookend-beast to Trent Williams again in 2018.Dave Gettleman can’t fix what ails the Giants in just one season.God bless Jerry Reese for all he did.All in all, PFF looked favorably on the Redskins, projecting them 9 spots higher than their final 2017 ranking.Still, I feel like the Redskins line is likely to be a top-ten unit this season — especially if anyone can find a good answer at the LG spot (Hope springs eternal - it ain’t over till the fat lady sings the national anthem on opening day in Arizona).
