Re: Bucs fire Coach Jon Gruden and GM Bruce Allen

Woah. That's a shocker. Kind of dumb to wait so long after the end of the regular season.

That team will be totally different next year, and probably pretty awful. No Monte Kiffin (their defense mailed it in for a month straight as soon as he announced he was bolting for Univ. of Tennessee to work with his son), no Gruden, Garcia could be gone, Derrick Brooks is nearing the end...

Now, if they bring in Mike Shanahan as GM/head coach and are willing to spend a big portion of the $40M+ worth of cap room they have, it could be quite interesting.

I bet Dan Synder is breaking out in hives with all the big name coaches avaliable. I'm wondering if someone is in his office holding him away from his phone so he won't call in Jim Zorn and fire him. LOL

He already did that last year. Z is there because everyone else laughed in Danny's face.

I hope that Tampa blows up. I've hated them for a long time.

Oakland fans would be thrilled about that. Bill Callahan took Gruden's Raider team to the Super Bowl that, ironically, Gruden won with a Tampa Bay team that had Tony Dungy written all over it.

Re: Bucs fire Coach Jon Gruden and GM Bruce Allen

That's very surprising but in today's NFL does it really shock anyone? If Shanahan can get fired then no one is safe. I think the loss to Oakland sealed his fate. I really don't like Gruden's version of the west coast offense so I hope he doesn't come here. Too much dinking and dunking and god knows we already do enough of that here.

Hey, Joey Galloway and Antonio Bryant have caught more deep balls for the Bucs the past few years than anyone has for the Redskins.

Gruden for OC! Just kidding. Kind of.

Gruden for OC sounds really good to me.

WOW I didn't see that or Shanahan, and I sure expected Wade Phillips gone. (and kinda Norv too.) Gruden seemed like a solid coach, the Rams should try and get him.
