Grudens return to coaching may just be an ugly mess.

And an expensive one, ten years $100M! You cannot possibly fire this guy for at least 8 years right?

Rebuilt!

Bears are who we hoped they'd be.

Holy crap!  I did not realize that was his contract. The Raiders are insane! I would not give Belicheat a ten year contract.

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

Jon Gruden made this comment in his opening presser at the combine. So I do not think it is out of context......just to give you some context.  Uhm, yeah, right!

I know we are all Grumpy Old Men....except the kids around here. It is a badge I wear with pride.  But Gruden was always the young QB Whisperer....blah, blah, blah. Personally I think he is feeling his age with all these new "Über-young" hotshot Head Coaches around the League.

This is not going to end well... cap hell and bad contracts on their way... too be honest, what has Gruden really done but win a Super Bowl with a team Tony Dungy built... and then pretty much put them in the dumpster right after that... he definitely didn't do anything to justify paying him $100m... and now he is coming into this talking about how he isn't going to use all available methods to help improve his team... guess every guy will get the "eye test"... Get yer popkern ready, cause it should be fun watching this house burn down...

Jon Gruden returns to a changed NFL seeking to turn back the clock

INDIANAPOLIS — Jon Gruden may be the new guy on the head-coaching scene, but he’s determined to pick up right where he left off 20 years ago.

Asked about the proliferation of NFL teams relying heavily on advanced statistics, Gruden made it clear that he’s an old-school guy determined to get back to basics. His philosophy, he said, is to take things back. Way back.

“Are you talking about the analytics? The GPS? All the modern technology? Man, I’m trying to throw the game back to 1998. Really,” Gruden said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine, when asked about the potential overload of information for teams using analytics.

This is Gruden’s first NFL scouting combine of his second go-round as a head coach, part of readjusting to life in the league after leaving ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast booth to return to the Oakland Raiders.

He previously coached the Raiders from 1998-2001 and last coached in 2008 with Tampa Bay, compiling a 57-55 record and winning Super Bowl XXXVII with the Buccaneers before his firing. Since then, Gruden has spent much of his time in the broadcast booth. And now he’s eager to get back on the sidelines and coach the “the old-fashioned way.”

“As a broadcaster, I went around and observed every team, asked a lot of questions, took a look at the facilities, how they’re doing business,” said Gruden, who signed a 10-year, $100 million contract with the Raiders in January. There’s a stack of analytical data … that people don’t even know how to read it. It’s one thing to have the data … It’s another thing to know how to read the damn thing.

“So, I’m not going to rely on GPSes and all the modern technology,” added Gruden. “I will certainly have some people who are professional who can help me from that regard. But I just think doing things the old-fashioned way is a good way. And we’re going to try to lean the needle that way.”

The influx and popularity of advanced analytics are just one way the league has changed since Gruden left its coaching ranks. Gruden said he is also struggling with the limitations on the amount of contact that he can have with his players in the early stages of the offseason under the terms of the current collective bargaining agreement.

I still kinda like Gruden and now that I see the whole line of conversation to be honest with ya, I don't disagree with much of what he is saying

Gruden is going to fail and he will blame it on the CBA! He will start whining soon after he get his first fine for violating the off-season rule on contact with his players!
