Alabama can beat the worst NFL team? I don't think so

Jamie Squire

No way a college football team could beat the NFL's worst team.

In perhaps the most SEC comment of the week, South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier says Alabama can beat one of the worst NFL teams, and maybe even be favored in that game.

On the Dan Patrick Show, Spurrier said:

"Alabama, gosh, they look like they could beat a couple of those NFL teams that I've watched on Sundays," Spurrier said. "I think a lot of the oddsmakers out there, that usually know what's going on, I'd guess Alabama would be favored by a little bit."

That worst team could easily be the Chiefs and, no, Alabama could not beat them. Let's say that half of Alabama's roster makes it to the pros. About half of those guys are currently 18 and 19 year old kids. There is simply no way they could stack up against a roster that is full of players who are actually in the NFL.

More evidence:

When you're as bad as the Chiefs have been, these are the types of things people will say. They're wrong...but they'll say it.

We talked about this on 610 Sports earlier today and everyone agreed -- Alabama can't beat an NFL team. I suggested that the team who could have a shot at keeping it closer than Alabama would be Oregon. Yes, they're much smaller than Alabama but the Crimson Tide plays the same type of game that NFL teams do. Oregon, on the other hand, plays something completely different, something NFL teams don't see every week. I don't think Oregon could keep it within four touchdowns of the Chiefs but to me that type of team is a more intriguing matchup (if a NFL vs. college team can be called an "intriguing" matchup).
