Re: Stick a fork in em', they are done!

Why is Gruden regarded as some guru? Did everybody just happen to erase the Bucs record and drafting after the SB? He had one season over 10 wins after the SB win, and that was coming in a division that sucked at the time.

I think it's because he had success quite young. Another reason is his constant high energy and charisma. Like it or not games (especially close ones) are often won or lost on effort and inspiration. Guys like Gruden, Pete Carroll, the Chin and Sean Peyton just to make a short list, who are totally engaged and even psyched on the sidelines seem to consistently get great performances from their players.

But your point Gruden isn't a great roster builder is pretty accurate, at least historically. Thing is, that's true of a lot of SB winning coaches i.e. they walk into a situation with a lot of the pieces, namely QB, already in place to be successful. I think it's a pretty rare brain who can both team build and coach at a championship level, withstanding the test of time.

Re: Stick a fork in em', they are done!

I like Jon Gruden but i didn't like the way he disrespected Jeff Garcia in 2008 when he benched him for Brian Griese because of something behind the scenes. Griese sucked and it was only when the team went like 0-3 with Griese that Gruden went back to Jeff Garcia, who still took the team to the playoffs...

Somewhat accurate, give the source his credit though

Chicago will start to fall down like usual, Cutler is bad and their D isn't good anymore. I expect 8-8 from them at best

This person works in the FO. And has appeared on a TV camera before.
What's so hard about citing this as your source?
