Jon Gruden citing The Wizard of Oz in his postgame presser 🧙♂️😂
Gruden just got the Raiders from down 4 scores to down 4 scores. Big
The look on Gruden's face on this miss killed me dead.
“We had an interception turned over by the Wizard of Oz” - Jon Gruden
WHERE, OH WHERE ARE THE FUCKINGGG GRUDEN GRINDERSSSSS?!?!
Gruden said "Carr has a chance to be great".
"Mack is the best defensive player in NFL, and we're gonna get him back in the building"
"Amari Cooper will be the focal point of the offense"
Using my Gruden translator, it means he's gone.
Yep, Jay Gruden was right. No way you can play both Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice in an effective offense. No freakin' way.
(Sorry, had to.)
Gruden on Derek Carr: "He's a good quarterback. He's got a chance to be great. Just wasn't his day."
#Raiders fans before the season started: Year six for Derek Carr, second season in Gruden’s offense. Make or break, no more excuses.
Carr stans after the Chiefs game: https://t.co/RzJuQQJDMH
Unless Drew Brees or Tom Brady actually hit FA, there isn’t anyone in FA that would be a clear upgrade. Teddy Bridgewater would fit Gruden’s offense but Carr has superior arm talent. There isn’t an “Andrew Luck” type guy in this draft. Better off getting Carr weapons, IMO. https://t.co/JSuDMqG3aK
IMO, how the rest of the season plays out will determine how active Gruden and Mayock will be on the QB front. I don’t feel like they are currently at the point where they package picks to move up in the draft or anything. That could change depending on the rest of the year. https://t.co/FQN2DnVuXU
So the offense is easy to read and is predictable. Proof is pretty obvious with how infective they have been the past month now that teams have more game tape on the offense. That's on Gruden more than Carr.
My over-arching theory is that the Gruden/Carr thing might not be working out. Nobody's fault entirely. They just seem slightly uncomfortable in this and now they're 38 games in and Gruden is known to get a little fidgety with QBs.
I’m willing to bet large amounts of money Carr will be the starting quarterback at least one year in Vegas. Mayock & Gruden aren’t as stupid as half of our fanbase. Their football knowledge doesn’t come from playing Madden & fantasy football.
Tough weekend for the two best coaches in football (Gruden, Gruden’s son).
Carr should have come out balling after hearing all the talk that he couldn’t play in the cold this week. Instead he proved his critics correct. He sucked today, no excuses no “what ifs”. He’s not providing the spark and excitement that this team needs and Gruden knows that. #6yr
So Honey Badger said Chiefs D knew when Carr was going down the field because of formation. Carr sucked ass today, but doesn't some of that fall on Gruden to disguise formations? Or are Gruden's hands tied due to Carr's limitations?
Damn #RaiderNation is all disgruntled the @Raiders
still have a shit for the playoffs slim but still a chance so instead of shitting on carr or Gruden why don’t y’all wait till we see how this turns out stop crying stop bitching and mean #RN4L #RaiderNation ☠️
As fans you're looking at it with a different perspective than the coach and GM of the team! It's dumb. ZERO fan opinion is going to influence Gruden's roster moves! Gruden told him he's a rookie again when he got there and forget everything before he got there...
I hope his comments will get echoed in Gruden's next presser.
Gruden had to scrap his plan this year. And possibly next year too with a new QB. He needs QB to keep producing while he’s here. He can’t bash him in public. I think he’s had to revise his game plan down to the reduced abilities of Carr I don’t think he’s ride or die with him.
Gruden is here for 8 more years. Him and Mayock likely will be here without the fear of being fired. That's not a bad thing. Mark won't fire the guy he is may in love with and while his play-calling can drive me nuts, he is a good coach.
Ah, yes. Drafted by the QB Guru, Jon Gruden. Here are the other QB drafted by Jon Gruden:
1. Marques Tuiasosopo
2. Bruce Gradkowski
3. Josh Johnson
NOPE refs on there own review play NO COACHES challenge then claim pass interference! Get the drift? Time to implement audits of refs BANK ACCOUNTS!
At game I saw several holding calls on KC not called! These are NFL caliber refs??? #gruden #mayock #RaiderNation #footballFan
