    Yeah I don't get the Jay Gruden love, but it's a classic Snyder hire, he was just looking for a big name guy and while Jay has proven little, he has the surname

    Don't underestimate Bruce Allen's role in the hiring of Gruden

    What's up with Jon Gruden these days??

    Is he now just a ESPN analyst?

    I always hoped he would come back to the Raiders... :lol:

    Always thought he was a great fit with his WCO...

    Gruden (of the Jon variety) is getting paid OBSCENE amounts of money to do all the things he loves, watch football, pump up offensive weapons, dissect plays, evaluate the draft, comment on the draft, break down it's QBs and have absolutely NO responsibility or pressure to actually win a super bowl

    i not sure Gruden will coach again, i recon he'll just morph into this generations John Madden.
    And i dont blame him either

    This is part of an interview He did in September...

    I don't blame him for never coming back... But goddamn he would lift the fans if they managed to get him.

    It's funny.. I saw a Raiders fan on a forum who was certain that if the Raiders signed Gruden and gave him a gun slinger to run his WCO like a Drew Brees that would take them back to the play offs...

    I think it's wishful thinking... I think the Rich Gannon gun slinging days are long over... As much as I loved them...

    I think Mike McCoy is more of what is going on in SD than Wisenhunt
    he'll be missed but i think the Chargers struck some gold with McCoy, that chargers team is lacking in talent.

    You give him 2 more years to accure some more defensive talent and another wideout oppoiste Allen, and you'll have a contending chargers team again

    yeah im not really sure, he was one of the my front runners for the philly job last year if they wanted to go defense but it seems no one wants to give him a run

    he should get the detroit job, but im not even sure if they've spoken to him

    througherly unenthused by the jim caldwell-detroit hire

    i was really hoping detroit would get a top line coach and become a genuine contender. Not sure Caldwell is the man for that job

    Yet they haven't hired him yet. So reading between the lines, it suggests they have a candidate at one of the clubs still in the playoffs who they want more than Zimmer. Greg Roman is the name that pops up on the forums I have read.

    So who is left looking for coaches now?
    Cleveland is an interesting one - I can see why they did it but.....who's going to go to Cleveland with it's crappy weather, awful front office and losing record??
    Ironically the Browns have a lot of potential to become decent.
    Man I'd hate to be a fan of that team though, cruel.

    I see the Browns job is the only job left...

    I think that job could lead to something very special if it goes to the right coach and the owners give them time to build.

    2 first, 2 second & 2 third round draft picks this year.

    There is a massive chance that in this draft they could end up with they're franchise QB in Bridgewater, Manziel or Bortles.

    Not to mention a heap of salary cap space to spend on free agents... So theoretically they could grab a guy like Manziel and bench him... And bring in a veteran QB from free agency to run the show until he's ready.

    They just need the right coach...
