Redskins | Theismann and Spurrier Trade Some Barbs

Ron Morris, of the State, reports ESPN broadcaster Joe Theismann and former Washington Redskins head coach Steve Spurrier, now the head coach at South Carolina, exchanged some words over the way Spurrier handled Redskins QB Patrick Ramsey during the 2002 and 2003 seasons. "Steve Spurrier would berate Patrick if he threw it to the flat because it wasn't there down field," Theismann said. "In Joe Gibbs' offense, if you don't have it, dump it off. That makes a big difference." Spurrier came right back at Theismann, without mentioning his name. "Obviously, after winning eight conference championships, one national championship, leading the nation in scoring in '96, leading the SEC in total offense and scoring offense almost ever year for 12 years, we did not accomplish all that by teaching the quarterback to force the ball down field," Spurrier said of his highly successful Florida days. Spurrier added he was amused at former players who never coached becoming experts just because they step behind a microphone.
