    When gruden was coaching twitter wasn't around and didn't account for half of the news , he'll be in a lot more pressure and criticism from people

    It's different times. The NFL is full of triggered kneelers. Maybe Gruden will cut them if they dare kneel.

    Hate to see Mort look like this, but we will all hit that stage soon enough. Enjoy your youth while you can folks.

  • TheSSUltimateGoku

    This deal is going to set a precedent for the other head coaches to wanted raise on their deals.

  • AdolphSaxOfficial

    this just reeks of Phil Jackson to the Knicks..

    Reggie needs to go now. Especially after passing up on Rueben Foster for Conley😑. I hope they fire Ron Rivera too so he can come take the DC job away from Guenther.

    All I know is that Gruden could not stop praising Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith in the first half of last night's game and then the guy gets shut out in the 2nd half and the Chiefs lose the game.

    Jon Gruden is the Doc Rivers of the NFL he's a good coach... but highly overrated!!

    The Raiders are nuts. Why the heck do they think Gruden is such a hot ticket?

  • Tom Yazel
    Tom Yazel Year ago

    funny that people think this is gonna matter to the raiders...whatever. he still has Carr's overpaid ass and the best 70 yards a game RB in the AFC...beast mode. pay him $10 million a year to be 9-7 just like they paid Carr to be 6-10. boring.

    • Tom Yazel
      Tom Yazel Year ago

      Wilson nothing? You were supposed to win the afc this year....after last year. Third place and Carr healthy all year.

    • Tom Yazel
      Tom Yazel Year ago

      Wilson you got smoked by the chargers.

    • Tom Yazel

      Wilson couldn't pass the chiefs

    • Tom Yazel

      Wilson supposed to win this year. 6-10?

    As a Buccaneers fan, I'm excited to be beating the Raiders in the Superbowl when he leaves them.

  • Night Owl
    Night Owl Year ago +4

    With a winning percentage of .540% Gruden is nothing more than an average coach. 10 mill a year for 10 years?! What a joke. I guess Gruden's name is bigger than what he's done.

      I dont judge him by The Tampa Record. I Judge heem for whar he did for my Raiders. He turned us around and if AL didn't shipp heem off...We most likely would have won a superbowl. Jon took us for dysfunctional...joke of the NFL...to Afc champs..2 years in a Row..we were dominating the Afc

    I just got one thing to say FUCK Las Vegas and all you teams that play the raiders there in 2020 are going to take over that stadium I could already see 45 thousand steelers cowboys broncos chiefs packers 49 ers any team with a big following are going to circle that day they play the raiders and go to Vegas and party and watch their team play the traitors fuck Mark Davis he could bring Tim brown and Bo Jackson and the apposition twaois still going to take over. Can’t wait to see the steelers or broncos take over and Mark Davis look like a bitch.

  • paul planting

    Al Davis is spinning in his grave. If he were alive he would believe the only thing that Gruden was "uniquely positioned" to do was sodomize his beloved football team for $10 million a pop.

    This is a ra ra Las Vegas move that a lot of people will like, but it is NOT the right long-term move for the Raiders. LOTS of better options out there. Josh McDaniels (OC - Patriots), Pat Shurmur (OC - Vikings), Jim Schwartz (DC - Eagles), George Edwards (DC - Vikings), Matt Patricia (DC - Patriots), Dave Toub (Special teams - Chiefs) just to name a few.
    Talked about this on my channel today.

    He's Jon gruden gonna signed a 10 years and 10 millions per years, so a 100 millions, you would think at some point of that 10 years he will at least Lead the raiders to 2 to 4 super bowls, if not 2 is not out of question....if that is if he can't take the raiders to promise land will the owners, Mark Davis will be spinning his records for long time....and going to wake up lots people in raiders nation, and I might say he going to get lot of angry raiders fans coming out to voice their disappointments....any how I'm feeling good about this hiring of Jon gruden....he's a great guy.....good luck to the raiders and Jon gruden, I really hope the raiders at some point will win the super bowl, 2 to 3....but that's just me....I guess other teams out there got their fans and going to tell me, hey dude not so fast , keep on dreaming......oh well, I can't pleased everyone with my opinion you know.....lol....

  • Arthur Mah

    Jon gruden is a great coach, sorry if not everyone agree with me on this topic, but the raiders found themselves a coach that can take them to the top, no disrespect to former coach like Jack del Rio and any others ex raiders coach.....I'm just saying gruden fit right with Derrick Carr and the raiders......enuff said...

      Raymond Kliniewski tell that to bill belichek and his 7th round pick Tom Brady. plus when it's all said and done the only Patriot people will talk about is Tom Brady, maybe gronk. look up Jeff hostetler, mark rypkin , etc etc those qbs won Superbowls and weren't and are not considered great players

  • Carlos Monzon
    Carlos Monzon Year ago +5

    I think he got a great mind as a Football coach, I think it was a waste seeing him as a football commentator on tv, and he went back where he really belongs, and I am a Patriots fan, but I like the guy.

    • ALEX cecc
      ALEX cecc Year ago

      Dolores Castillo they can go 4-12 if they don't have good players...

    • Dolores Castillo

      Carlos Monzon a waste!!!?? I enjoyed him as a commetator. his last 3 seasons coaching were 4-12, 9-7 ,9-7 ... I like him as a coach I think hell b better but great coaches don't go 4-12.
