Raiders legends share excitement over Jon Gruden’s return

Raiders legends share excitement over Jon Gruden’s return
raiders-legends-share-excitement-over-jon-gruden’s-return

Rich Gannon, and Howie Long were among about 50 of the Raiders alumni on hand to celebrate Gruden’s return. Gannon, Tim Brown,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/whitney-mercilus-jersey-authentic]Womens Whitney Mercilus Jersey[/url], feels Gruden getting traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002 was a mistake that robbed the duo of a chance to win multiple super bowls in Oakland. Now that Gruden is back, who thrived as Gruden’s starting quarteback from 1999-2001 during Gruden’s first stint as head coach of the Raiders, Gannon believes that opportunity could arise again with this current squad.

“If Al Davis were here today,” Gannon said. “We were building something special and that derailed it. The good news is that he’s back in the building and the energy hasn’t wavered. I’m excited.”, he’d probably tell you that the worst decision he ever made as an owner was trading away Jon Gruden

“The one thing I loved about Jon is when we stepped on the field,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/braxton-miller-jersey-authentic]Authentic Braxton Miller Jersey[/url], we lost, we knew we were prepared. If we lost, but it wasn’t because we had a bad game plan or we didn’t have a clue what was gonna happen. As a player,” Brown said. “We got beat physically, that’s all you can ask for. Make sure that we’re well-prepared.”

Veteran offensive tackle Donald Penn, said he’s so sure Gruden is the right man for the job he’s telling everyone it’s a guarantee that he and his Raiders teammates will be in the playoffs next year., who played under Gruden with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2006 to 2008

Penn, said the Raiders have all the parts in place for success, speaking on the NFL Network’s “Total Access” Monday, the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, but just need the one extra ingredient that Gruden provides. Penn compares Gruden to Steve Kerr, who has taken that team to the top.

"Me knowing coach Gruden, I don’t think there’s any coach in the NFL that brings that kind of excitement", his mentality and his excitement and energy he’s going to bring, you see how excited he is for football. So bringing that in, Penn said. "You guys hear him on Monday night (broadcasts), it’s going to trickle down through the building."

 mad and upset” about how they played this past season in going 6-10.,Penn said he called Gruden recently and told him he’ll be walking into a room “full of hungry dogs that are hungry

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, had 22 touchdown passes and 16 interceptions this season. The only other time Newton threw as many interceptions was his rookie season when he threw 17. Newton also led Carolina with 754 rushing yards., the 2015 NFL MVP and the first pick of the 2011 draft

Dorsey, 36, going 2-8. He was traded by the 49ers to Cleveland in May 2006 and spent three seasons with the Browns., was drafted in the seventh round by the 49ers in 2003 and started a combined eight games for San Francisco in the 2004 and 2005 seasons

 then when did these conversations take place and how serious were they? When the source says Belichick sees "an opening to get to the Giants" that comes across as far more speculative knowing that the source hasn't been in touch with the five-time Super Bowl champion since the story broke.,If the source hasn't spoken to Belichick since the explosive story was published

 it likely wouldn't be a smooth transaction with Belichick walking away to take over the Giants.,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/jadeveon-clowney-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jadeveon Clowney Jersey[/url],Most Patriots beat reporters spent Friday discrediting parts of the piece and downplaying the possibility that this will be the final season of Belichick and Brady in New England. Even if this is the end

No one knows the details of Belichick's contract,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/will-fuller-v-jersey-authentic]Womens  Will Fuller V Jersey[/url], but it's difficult to imagine Kraft ever letting the coach enter the final year of a deal to avoid this type of situation. So, assuming Belichick is under contract, with the Patriots' demands undoubtedly starting with the Giants' No. 2 pick ., it would cost a boatload to acquire him 

n 2002,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/duane-brown-jersey-authentic]Womens Duane Brow Jersey[/url],[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/nick-martin-jersey-authentic]Womens Nick Martin Jersey[/url], two second-round picks and $8 million in cash. That would likely be the baseline for the Patriots in any negotiations involving the far more accomplished Belichick., the Raiders traded coach Jon Gruden to the Buccaneers for two first-round picks

There are other roadblocks on Belichick's potential path back to East Rutherford. While Giants co-owner John Mara, general manager Dave Gettleman and assistant general manager Kevin Abrams were in Foxboro, Massachusetts, tampering rules prevented the Giants' brass from contacting Belichick about their opening.,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/will-fuller-v-jersey-authentic]Authentic Will Fuller V Jersey[/url], to interview Patriots coordinators Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia on Friday 

Now, the Giants would be taking a major risk to wait until after the Patriots' playoff run to pursue the coach., surely the Giants would be able to gauge Belichick's interest through back channels. But without a locked-in commitment from Belichick's camp

In the interim, the top attainable candidates, will likely come to agreements with other teams. The Giants could be left in desperation mode if they wait for Belichick and he ultimately decides to stay in New England or retire., like McDaniels and Patricia

 but it also seems like a recipe for disaster.,Gettleman's presence adds another variable to the equation. The 66-year-old didn't come to the Giants a week ago to be a puppet. But Belichick has had the final say over the roster throughout his time in New England. Could these strong-willed individuals work something out? Potentially

 Jon Gruden had plenty of opportunities to return to an NFL sideline over the past several years. Until Tuesday, though, he opted instead to stay in the friendly, confines of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast booth., and well-compensated

What pulled him back after nine years away from the game was not the lucrative contract offer of the Oakland Raiders, he says, unfinished business as the team’s head coach., but rather

 there is unfinished business,“Yeah,” Gruden said Tuesday at his introductory news conference, four years after giving him his first head coaching job. “As a coach, [url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/whitney-mercilus-jersey-authentic]Authentic Whitney Mercilus Jersey[/url],I’ve been traded. I’ve been fired. I’ve missed the game terribly., again taking the reins of a team that traded him away in 2002

 it still ticks me off.”,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/nick-martin-jersey-authentic]Authentic Nick Martin Jersey[/url], “But I’ve really missed the Raiders. For my career [here] to end on that night in New England

Gruden is referring to the 2001 AFC division playoff game between the Raiders and New England Patriots – a now legendary game played on a snow-covered field that began Tom Brady and Bill Belichick‘s historic run of five championships with the Patriots. After that season, with whom he won Super Bowl XXXVII in his first season., the Raiders made the rare move of trading away Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

After agreeing to a massive $100 million contract that spans 10 years, Gruden will now have a chance to write a new ending with the Raiders. He will also help author the beginning of the team’s time in Las Vegas when it relocates there, likely for the 2020 season, Gruden said it was his love for the city of Oakland that helped bring him back., pending the completion of a new stadium. Still

“I love the city of Oakland, and I want to give them two of the best years of football that I can possibly help deliver.”,” Gruden said. “I had a son here. Some of my great memories of my life are in Oakland

McKenzie’s presence answered one question about Gruden’s return to the franchise – specifically, who will be working alongside Gruden in Oakland’s front office. Gruden answered another when he confirmed that he, would be calling plays for the Raiders next season., as expected

 however. Gruden himself pointed out several times during the half-hour news conference that he has “a lot to prove” after spending the last nine years outside of the game – an odd admission from a man who was just given a decade-long contract with an annual eight-figure salary.,Many other questions remain

” Gruden said. “I haven’t won a game since 2008.,“I have not coached since 2008

“I’ve got to hire a great coaching staff. . . . It’s about the people, it’s about the staff, it’s about the tempo we establish as a coaching staff. With that said,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/deandre-hopkins-jersey-authentic]Womens DeAndre Hopkins Jersey[/url], and I know that.”,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/duane-brown-jersey-authentic]Authentic Duane Brow Jersey[/url], I have a lot to prove

 tapping Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Greg Olson as his offensive coordinator and installing Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther and Dallas Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia in those same roles in Oakland.,Gruden officially announced his selections for the team’s coordinator positions

Gruden’s rapid hiring – first rumored before his predecessor, Jack Del Rio,” which mandates a team interview minority candidates for any head coaching opening. McKenzie confirmed that the Raiders complied by interviewing a pair of minority candidates: Raiders tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and  offensive coordinator Tee Martin.,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/jadeveon-clowney-jersey-authentic]Womens Jadeveon Clowney Jersey[/url],had officially been fired – prompted some question whether the team complied with the NFL’s “Rooney Rule

 particularly in regard to the use of social media by players and teams.,The league Gruden returns to will look markedly different than what he left in 2008 when he was fired as the head coach of the Buccaneers
