The deal that’s being reported to sign Gruden seems crazy. $100 for ten years. Hope he’s still got it.

Yes it's a lot to pay out if it all goes wrong in a couple of years. Gruden will apparently be calling the plays, which is just as well as he's got Greg Olson lined up to return as offensive coordinator. No I'm not joking...

Crazy deal for Gruden. A big part of it has to be building up hype for the LV move. Whichever way it works out, it will sure be an interesting few years!

Hopefully Greg Olson has learned a thing or two from Sean McVay with his time at the Rams.

Olsen is the QB whisperer don't forget. Also like the DC hire. Really unsure about Gruden but a big part of what makes a HC is the people he surrounds himself with.

I predict an average to slightly above average D and a rejuvenated Derek Carr next season.

Still going to be 7-9 mind....

Gruden is a risk but rather him than a mediocre retread or uninspiring coordinator. At least Chucky has the most important attribute found in all good HCs ... great leadership skills.

Too many teams hire guys who are good with their Xs and Os, but lack the ability to command the respect of the locker room. Gruden is an alpha dog with a dominant personality.

This is what Del Rio was the last couple of years. Not a great Xs and Os guy but seemed to get respect out of the team. Looked like this faltered this season, rumours of locker room issues/etc..
As you said, Gruden won't take BS and will command respect, but he's probably a much better Xs and Os than Del Rio was too.

Any coach would've looked good with that Broncos defense from a few years ago. One of the best ever. Jack seems to be a good man but he was never going to take us the full distance and made some awful choices with his coordinators. I appreciate what he's done though.
