Re: Gruden Says Start Cousins

Not to belabor the point, but wasn't Shanny as equally invested in the nfl throughout his yearlong exile? That seemingly didn't help much.

Gruden has been out of the NFL for five years, and hasn't really been actively coaching and working with players to the same degree he would have during his coaching years. I just fear that something may have been lost. Should he be hired, 3 of the past 4 coaches would have had some duration of absence from the game, and the two we've worked with have had marginal success. Granted, two instances isn't necessarily a trend, and it doesn't factor into how gruden will perform, I worry about the odds, regardless. I'd much rather try our luck with an up and comer than a retread.

I can't argue your points about Jon Gruden

How long was Dick Vermiel out before returning and leading the Rams to a Super Bowl with a grocery bagger as his QB? 15 years? I want a teacher and a leader of men running the show. The jury is still out whether the Shanahans have been solid teachers relative to developing Griffin. Viewing from the outside, it would appear that an offense was modified to Griffin's unique skills, perhaps at the expense of progressing Griffin in the passing game. I want to see far more WCO concepts, where the ball is out of the QB's hand on rhythm, instead of being so dependent on play action passing behind our train-wreck of a pass protection O-line.

Gruden has forgotten more than most newcomers know.

Re: Gruden Says Start Cousins

I think when the coaches retire and go to the booth, do TV, etc, they are still around the game and involved with current players, coaches, etc...

Gruden still does his QB camp and all that. I wouldn't say its passed him by.

With all due respect to Coach Gibbs, If i understand it he was completely away from football alltogether until he was part of that group that tried to buy the Atlanta Falcons....

No. Coach Gibbs, after his retirement, went into the booth to do football game commentary for the NFL, and then was on one of the NFL pre-game shows (for I think either CBS or NBC.) So, he was around the NFL even after his retirement.

I completely agree about Jon Gruden or any other retread candidate.

Vermeil, mentioned above, did not win a SB until he got to the Rams so is not the same as Shanahan, Gibbs, or Jon Gruden.

I hope we hire a first-time NFL head coach who has that raw, unsatisfied hunger to win a Super Bowl. Jay Gruden fits this description whereas Chucky does not.

I apologize folks, I stand corrected. BUT...... If he can take the Raiders from last place in the AFC division to lead it 3 yrs in a row and post a 12-4 season? I'll take that everytime.

Quote:
Under Gruden, the Raiders posted consecutive 88 seasons in 1998 and 1999, and leapt out of last place in the AFC West. After uniting with journeyman quarterback Rich Gannon, Gruden led the Raiders to the top of the AFC West and made the playoffs three straight seasons (the third time under Head Coach Bill Callahan). Oakland finished 124 in the 2000 season, the team's most successful in a decade, and its first division title since 1990, ultimately reaching the AFC Championship, where they lost 163 to the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. While Gruden was with the Raiders, Gruden acquired his nickname "Chucky" from Raiders defensive lineman Grady Jackson, who thought that the coach looked like the fictional character "Chucky" in the 1988 movie Child's Play.
