How many here would have creamed if we had given Gruden a 10 year contract?  Besides, he wasn't going to leave the booth for a Merv-type $.

After 15 years of Merv I could do ten years of Gruden standing on my head.  Besides, maybe we can start acting like real NFL teams and jettison coaches we don't want instead of making them serve out the last damn minute of their contract.

Very curious to see how it pans out. I've always thought Gruden was an average coach who largely road Dungy's coattails in taking the Bus to the Superbowl and promptly coming back to Earth.

He's been off the field for a decade. It will be an interesting storyline to follow next season.

I definitely don't trust the league, but somehow I have a hunch the Raiders are gonna be gifted a bunch of games for the "star power" alone..
Anyone else think some hanky panky will go on to insure that the Gruden name goes down in the 'anals' of the game as the "greatest coaching hire" of the past 30 years?

10 million/year...you'll spend twice that for a top tier QB. I've always thought if you spent the money to get the best coach out there, it's what any owner should do. Plus, there are fewer top tier coaches than there are QB's. However, I'm not sure Gruden is "that" guy. He's a very likeable fun guy with good knowledge of the players and the game. If you listen to him ramble for more than two minutes, he will inevitably say something incredibly stupid, but maybe that's how he processes things, and it all comes out in the end. Time will tell.

I still remember when Jon Gruden was traded from Oakland to Tampa Bay. I never heard of a coach being traded, but it had happened in the past. Maybe Vegas will trade him in a few years.
Bengals are spoilers! They even spoiled their own season. WhoDey2
