Pay No Attention to the Has-Been Behind the Curatin

Right smack in the middle of a bunch of pro-Steeler, anti-Cowboy propaganda that's supposed to pass as Bradshaw's NFL predictions, he has an item on where to look for future NFL coaches. Here's what he had to say:
At the close of the season, at least six head coaching jobs are available. The hot assistant is Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, but owners should check out Mark Richt from the University of Georgia and Urban Meyer (pictured) from Florida.

Please, NFL. Don't take a look at Richt. I really don't want to see him coaching some sub-par NFL team. And I sure don't want to see him leave Georgia.

That being said, what's really interesting is the parallel I see between the NFL prospects of Richt and Meyer compared to the NFL prospects of Stafford and Tebow. Both Richt and Stafford have what the NFL is looking for. Meyer and Tebow would both be attempts at taking square pegs and banging them through the round hole that is the NFL. It might work eventually but it won't be pretty in the meantime.

Nothing would bring more dark glee to my heart than watching Meyer try to install his spread offense in the NFL but I think Spurrier took care of any urge the NFL had in poaching a Florida coach.
