Default Sigh. PFT thinks John Gruden is a candidate....... in Houston!

LOL

A lot of people already don't like Mike Florio and his ridiculous rumor-mongering, but this one just about takes the cake.

Quote:
But Gruden’s availability could trigger a domino effect, with a previously on-the-fence team opting to make a move, and to make a run at Gruden.

Possibilities (in our view) include Buffalo, Houston, Jacksonville, San Diego, Dallas, Chicago, and Carolina.

I would want him on my team for a "Who can look the most pissed off for no reason" contest, other than that I am not sure.

Sweet an Offensive guy filling our DL Coach and/or Strength and Conditioning position.

What an ASSet - both Gruden and Florio.

Has there been a more overrated coach in the NFL over the past 10 years? Gruden has been riding Monte Kiffin's coattails since he arrived in Tampa. Now that Monte is in Knoxville with his son, there was no reason to keep Chucky around. Still, image is everything in the NFL, so Gruden will get retreaded. I hope it's not here.

Read the post. The best piece of flatulence I've read in a while. Ole' Mikey could beat Dickie Justice and Solomon in a pure nonsense writing contest and it wouldn't even be close.

The guy went to ONE Superbowl with a team that TONY DUNGEE built before they fired him! Calling him a great NFL coach would be like calling Barry Switzer one...they did the exact same thing and I'm not impressed with either. How many times has Tampa Bay been back to the Playoffs since that Superbowl win?

John Gruden is definitely a good NFL coach. He is just a very stubborn one and needs to learn to be a better players coach.

I don't want him anywhere near Houston though.

OTOH, Gruden built the Raider team that Callahan coached to the Super Bowl (and Gruden then demolished.)

So, to me, Gruden has more credibility than Switzer.

However, Gruden wasn't able to recreate his success at building an offense in Tampa Bay. OTOH, Dungy wasn't able to recreate his success at building a defense in Indy like he did in Tampa Bay.

Looking back at what I've written, I'm not sure what the hell my point is.

Default Re: Sigh. PFT thinks Jon Gruden is a candidate....... in Houston!

I think that Gruden is an excellent coach now we don't know what the circumstances were on why he was let go but I would have to think that Gruden is a stonger coach than Kubiak at this point due to the fact he nearly took 2 teams to the superbowl and he coached 1 team to the superbowl versus a coach who has never taken his team to the playoffs. I am not saying to get rid of Kubiak because he is making serious progress and the move doesn't make since to the fan base to change but, from an owner stand point if he did fire Kubiak and were to persue Gruden I wouldn't be shocked at all due to the fact this is a business and Gruden is a proven winner versus a coach who is trying to win. Big difference but I like Kubiak so let's give him one more season.
