John Gruden

Post  Markwes on Sun Jan 18, 2009 5:52 pm

I'm not a Bucs fan and I don't think anyone here is either, but I had to comment how shocked I was to hear that they fired Gruden. IMO he is one of the best if not THE best coach in the league. Yeah, losing their last 4 games after being almost a lock for the playoffs is inexcusable, but he still went 9-7 with a no-name group of players. Jeff Garcia and Brian Griese aren't exactly names that strike fear in opposing defenses. As I recall, they got Gruden in a trade and gave up a number of 1st and 2nd round picks. Now they have to pay Gruden to leave the team since he's still under contract.

I don't see him sitting out of football long. No a smart move by the Bucs when they got him and now when they let him go.

I agree Markwes, when tOSU hired Jim Tressel the name of Jon Gruden was floated around since he was an Ohio boy. I think Gruden is a great coach and I bet some of these teams who have already hired their new coach wish they would have waited.

I too was shocked.... I thought it would be awesome to have Gruden follow Dungy again and come to Indy... He's a class act and a great coach.

There is a rumor going around that if Herm Edwards gets axed in Kansis City, he will come to the Colts as part of the Defensive coaching staff.

Gruden joins 'Monday Night Football'
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4174469

Gruden will join play-by-play man Mike Tirico and analyst Ron Jaworski in September, replacing Tony Kornheiser.

Kornheiser decided to step down after three years of MNF, citing his fear of flying.

I for one will welcome Gruden, commentary from former players or coaches is my preferred choice of play by play.

I agree Korny is what he is. He is great on PTI. I absolutely look forward to at least one on air curse laden explostion from Gruden this fall/winter.
