Link: Players get away with stupid names; coaches, not so much.

(I hope he speaks grunt, or Del Rio's gonna be disappointed.)

Recently jilted as a suitor for the Redskins head coaching vacancy, AOL is reporting that Gregg Williams is now a candidate to step in as the new defensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Honestly, if this happens, then there won't be a team in the league that wants to face off with the Jags, and not because they're better than everybody else; nobody will want to play them because they will be the meanest, most physically brutal team in the league. Williams, already known for his knack for crafting hardnosed defensive schemes, would step in to a Jags team that has plenty of cap room to go find free agents, and the team already has a scary front four and solid talent in the secondary. Creative coaching and a linebacker or two would turn this team into a defensive machine, and given the way their offense already grinds out time of possession, I'd love to see what other teams can do when they only get the ball for 15-20 mins.
