Madden was the LB Coach back in 1967 and helped the Raiders to 13-1 record and a SB appearance. He then took over as HC in 1968 at the age of 32.

Parcells was a nobody before he got the job. I wouldn't have hired him and I certain would have fired him after his first season. The only redeeming quality he has is that he was able to learn on the job. There are exceptions to every rule, I just don't believe Jay Gruden has what it takes to be an exception and I would not take a chance on people who could be exceptional.


Jay Gruden is a firm NO HIRE for me.

Because fans know more than an NFL front office, that's why.

I don't know why you are bothering with satan, oops I mean saden. Local troll. Saden's posts are all opinion and emotion, but treats it as fact. Unreasonable people aren't worth trying to reason with.

Re: Redskins name Bruce Allen Team President/ GM

My OPINION, is that the FO decisions have seemed more logical, patient, and less of a quick fix mentality since Bruce has been here. Like someone else said earlier in this thread, even the Shanahan departure, head coach search, and Gruden transition was less of a circus than in the past. I'm cautiously optimistic about this FO. I will admit, saden may be right in the end, I fear that Danny is still too involved and I fear that it's more of the same old BS, but it is not an inevitability, and I'm hoping we continue to see progress in the organization both on the field and behind the scenes.

Pete Carroll sucked as an NFL coach (ask any Pats fan) and I'm sure a lot of people had doubts about him coming back after being a successful college coach.

Jim Harbaugh was a special teams coordinator from Philly. I don't think he had an "exceptional" resume and was pretty unknown.

Jeff Fisher was a d-coordinator, who bounced around different teams before becoming head coach. I'm not saying he's super successful, but he's been around for a while as an NFL coach.
I think you're getting John and Jim mixed up. John was the special teams coordinator in Philly before getting the B-more head coaching gig. Jim was the head coach at Stanford before he went to the 49ers.

I remember looking at the John Harbaugh hiring in B-more and thinking, "really, a special teams coordinator?" Look how wrong I was lol.

I am afraid you're right.

Nothing about what Jay Gruden has done is impressive or exceptional. Jay Gruden will not elevate this team and within the next 2 or 3 years he will me coordinating somewhere else.
This goes on all around the NFL. People hire who they're comfortable with.

And it's not like Gruden isn't qualified. He's not Zorn 2.0.
