No question Gruden likes JC. He coached him at the Senior Bowl when JC was coming out for the draft so they have a history. Monday Night is going to be very interesting!

Or, Elway couldn't do jack without Shanahan.

Another thing to add about Gruden is his connection with Allen. I think that is a huge positive.

Spiteful, and out of line in my opinion. I heard Rock had a few choices words about Vinny. Not sure what though

I agree Synder made the right move but is it the right guy for GM? He was fired by the Bucs who're worse than us. The guy had a chance to draft a decent player at 15 in '04 but took Michael Clayton. He did get that CB from Kansas, but none of his top picks went to the pro bowl or have made an impact, i.e (Gaines Adams). I' m glad we got rid of Vinny, but did we jump the gun to quick to get Allen?

Very doubtful. He'll be a coordinator for another team or something. Shoot if Linehan got a job after going 0-16 with the Lions, then anyone can get a job in the league.

I think its possible to keep Zorn.

Just for the record I am not a huge Gruden guy either. I think he is ok. I prefer Holmgren, so we can keep JC, Zorn and the WCO. I highly doubt this will happen, especially after Mike's comments about Zorn's play calling situation.

I think I mentioned it earlier, but don't discount the possibility of a "lesser known" name. Brian Schottenheimer, Kyle Shanahan to name a couple

One could argue that also. Shannahan did surround Elway with pro-bowl talent at all of the skilled positions. Rod Smith, McCaffery, Terrell Davis, Shannan Sharpe. That was one hell of a supporting cast.

Yeah I agree but we've got to give the guy a chance. We don't know what went on behind closed doors or how much say he had in those picks. He also put together some good teams in Oakland so let's wait and see.

Thank you. I've never seen such deep-rooted hatred for an available head coaching candidate with back-to-back Lombardi trophies on his resume.
