Fresh update on "gruden" discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"On the show. We all know what he looked like. Is the quarterback of the forty niners over. George kittle over him like just as far as popularity jokes. George kittle is immensely popular and again if i if we did this before the trade the before they acquire toilets before they acquired that. Pick jimmy d like you said just because he's a rockstar and every certain in every particular way but his stars is obviously damn people are down on jimmy. Just because there's new toy. I doubt it's stray land. How quickly we move on amazingly do john thank you so much very interesting list here. No doubt about it. Thank you all right. Let's think about that makes sense of legend there right. Yeah yeah through a series. But when i think about george kittle ace right away and i'm sure about that i mean he's he has a unique look because of the hair. Well he's also a little bit of personality. But i still would have had to bump him for one of the warrior basket. I just that's just me. Were is a really good one that you brought now remember everybody what we do here is. We're going to sixteen markets and then we did one through three from each market and then we take number one in each market put him into basically bracket and we have you the viewer the listener then vote to see at all the number ones who becomes number one in the entire country. We've already had lebron james. Now we have steph curry the bay area. Would you imagine that these two will probably end up being finalists. As far as popularity goes nationwide. Those are two of the biggest. Oh yes sure. I mean because we didn't do we didn't do tampa. We didn't know. Tom obviously would be pretty predominant. One athlete in new york doesn't have one. Yeah like not at that level. Aaron judge doesn't no katie. Wasn't a more on christmas list. Oh canty right now. He hit the ground. He waved up on the right day. Yeah he didn't wake up on the right side. I need to redo that list for who the chicago was it. Patrick kane yes. That's the again nationwide. Like that's it's going to be steph or lebron james. i wonder. I wonder if if this was whatever year two ago. If jon gruden would be on the list because he said how do they area you think you think now. It's kinda soured yeah. Yeah yeah he had vegas now. But i'm saying if he was in the bay area would have made the top three just even like they were in the bay area now. Because i think that things would have soured by now not getting a little impatient with him and the raiders. But they is. They feel like they feel like he's the answer right audie. Maybe i wonder what city you think. Just has the best three like who wins career. We'll put all the list together. The thing to do too because it always makes me go back to what houston could have been. Oh god between. La was would lebron kershaw in ad. Was that lsu. La eighty was eighty. Two thirty i think eighty might have been. Yeah you might have to take him.
Fresh update on "gruden" discussed on Patriots Beat
"Over-the-top like the Jon Gruden. The Las Vegas Raiders, just almost made Nelson. Agholor, a thousand yards receiver last year and took over 17 yards per catch. So if the page explained to me that together and they can't get these three guys to be a productive passing game together that to me is on the offensive coordinator. Yep. I'm sorry. I think they have plenty of Talent on that side of the football to have a good passing offense. Especially when you put together that you're going to have an offensive line, you're going to have a running game, you can have a lot of play action involved in this offense, if they can do it, I've been in McDaniels Defender, right? I've been somebody that has not wanted the pylon McDaniels if they can't figure that out. If they can't get these guys open. If they can't do all these things off to able to scheme, to get Hunter Henry and Johnny Smith to be productive receivers and Nelson Aguilar to. I'll throw him in there as well. Kendrick, born at six hundred yards last year for the San Francisco 49ers wage. That's going to be your fourth or fifth receiver. If they can figure these things out with these players then it's not the talent. It's the coaching again. Do they have the best receiver group in the league? No, they do not. Is it going to be like oh I know where they're going to put up forty points a game? Know is it going to be? You know, if you're somebody who just wants to watch fantasy if you just care about your fantasy football team, okay? And you just want to watch Arena ball where they're they're dead. Winning games 45 to 35 then go watch a readable then go watch the Massachusetts Pirates. They have pretty good receivers. They have Martavis Bryant Terrance Williams. A pretty good receivers this team is not built to throw for 5,000 yards. There's nothing wrong with that. Last year the team wasn't built to throw for 5000 yards either. Sure. But they also weren't built as well to run the ball and they certainly weren't built as well defensively. This is a team that is built. We've been divorced, seven. We're going to lose this argument, no matter what we're going to start making an argument because people are are so brainwashed by fantasy football in the quarterback has to throw for 300 yards off the multiple 100-yard receivers in every game, and if you run the ball more than five times in a game, it's bad. Like people are so brainwashed by this fantasy football Concept in Madden Ultimate Team and this is how you have to do it. There's more than one way to win a football game. There are teams now that are built defense up, run the ball, those teams too well. San Francisco got to these Super Bowl like that. Yep. Tennessee. Titans got to the AFC Championship game like that, it's a perfectly reasonable way to win football games in 2021, I'm sorry, if you're overs, aren't going to hit every week. I'm sorry if she is on passing yards, aren't going to hit every week. But this is a way to win football games. They've put together old. What are the oldest? Double-check isms one of the first Belichick isms I remember and I it might be his best one. There's a lot of good Belichick isms out there every but I think this might be as best one..
Las Vegas Raiders Draft Alex Leatherwood
"It's heidi here with sam gordon and we're gonna get into what happened. Here with the raiders at number seventeen in the nfl draft. Sam alex leatherwood offensive linemen from alabama selected. Seventeen for the. Las vegas raiders. What was your initial reaction. Because i know heidi first and foremost great to be here. I had a great time in cleveland. So far it's been a heck of an experience. Glad you're here With said In terms of your question definitely surprised right definitely surprised Not surprising right tackle. i Continued to voice leading up to the draft. I thought right tackle away to go was an obvious. Need in the offense of line of ministry of this team despite its it's consistent struggles. Last year's the offensive line was a pretty reliable unit and lot of turnover tram. Browns gone just going to be some reshuffling move out gave jackson you move out and you knew there was going to have to be some adjustments made and there was a glaring hole the right tackle and they went with right tackle so i they feel the need but just now player. I thought they'd fill that need with and you look at how the board was shaking out. Thought christian dare saw. I was going to be big especially considering what his grade was. And and and where. The raiders were picking. He wasn't now that said just because alex leatherwood is a surprise and we didn't expect him to be there doesn't mean he won't be a good player but it feels like more often than not the raiders. Under jon gruden. Mike mayock have reached for players that they could have gotten later and are maximizing the value of their first round picks damon are net in twenty twenty was a good example. That and even cleveland farrell. Who's a very good player by the way in the top five and twenty nineteen so a couple so with that in mind. I think alex leatherwood at trend. But the jury's still out on how good he's going to be i think he has a lot of potential beauge player was an all american big-time film comes from a big time program and he's gonna get his opportunity to prove mike. Megan jon gruden ryan look. I want to be optimistic about this. But i think there were other guys that were on the board. That had a lot of potential. And the raiders did go out here and they went out on a limb
Bill Barnwell Breaks Down NFL Quarterback Moves
"So bill. We gave you do the math a whole month away from this podcast before our dependency bio chemically kicked back in so i just hope the last four weeks have been everything that you personally needed. Pablo got on many vacations. I turned around my life after six months of just staying watching football now. Bill barn wells weekly column on. Espn plus and he hosts the bill. Barnwell show podcast realistically. I have done something that few human beings have accomplished. I managed to get one pack of moments from nba. top shot. yeah. We share that same addiction. You are far deeper into the game than me. I realized over the weekend. I just want there to be an nfl top shot. Because i feel like that's going to happen right. It has to. i mean. Imagine the things you could do. You could send somebody that colts fake punt from years ago or or if you wanted to try some of your friends. Perhaps you could send the russell wilson interception from the nfl top shot to a certain person with the initials m used to host the show. Yeah just randomly picking in that example in those initials absolutely but bill. We dragged you back here. Speaking of a certain quarterback who threw a certain interception emotionally terrorized ours. Because this is an especially dramatic. Nfl offseason. they're all these big name. Quarterbacks who want out of these relationships that seemed from a distance at least pretty broken and russell wilson and the seahawks. I need to ask you about that. I because i know russ isn't feeling respected by head coach. Pete carroll reporting. I know that carol wants to revoke all of his cooking privileges. We've heard now. Russell wilson like storming out of meetings which is kind of funny to imagine like door very lightly slamming so this particular soap opera. What is all of it. Feel like to you much ado about nothing really. I mean i just i. Just don't buy russell wilson drama. I go back to his contract. Negotiations this is the same player in the same agent. Who wants imply that he would leave football in the middle of these negotiations entering the final year of his deal to try professional baseball. Where russell wilson once for the iraqis and the organization he hit to twenty eight in the low minors before returning to college football. It was not a realistic threat. But if that way does he want the seahawks to give him more helpful on the offensive line which has been sort of the crux of his public complaints. Yeah i do believe that. And i think that the seahawks could benefit from giving him more help. They relied on russell wilson to run his way out of sacks and free pressures from unblock players which has worked for that stretch buddies also taken a ton of hits cuss russell. Wilson plays the way he plays. He is going to take a ton of sacks regardless of how good his protection is the best way honestly pablo to get him. Hitless frequently would be to run the ball more. Which is the exact thing. Russell wilson was trying to get the seahawks do lasso last offseason. So there is something here but i very much doubt that leads to a trade. My favorite thing about this new cycle i think is that russell wilson has relayed via his wrapped. Adam schefter that he is not demanding a trade but if he were there are these four specific teams that he'd like to go to the bears. The cowboys the saints. The raiders does any of that make sense to you know not at all i mean the classic russell wilson tropez that ciara was going to pick teams him in new york in los angeles which this is the opposite that list even the teams he chose are so strange. Maybe you'd argue that. He chose teams with great offensive. Lions triumph of the seahawks. But the trade doesn't really add up the same. Stu have agreed offensive line. But they're like sixty five million dollars over the salary cap. The cowboys have a great line. Whenever everyone's healthy but they also have back prescott. that's not gonna work either the bears. I don't understand. They don't have a great line or any cap space. That one makes no sense to me on either. Level the raiders. Maybe are the most interesting and plausible candidate of the bunch with a great line and some cap space to work with. But when i think about jon. Gruden as raiders coach. He wants quarterbacks to do exactly what jon gruden wants on every single play. I don't think any if it really adds up to meaningful trae dialogue. I don't think there's going to be a conversation between the seahawks and another team about trying to make a trade for russell wilson work but this is twenty twenty one anything is possible
Mini-Episode "Answer me this" Guest predictions: Bears QB - burst 2
"First time podcast. Guest longtime listener mark silverman. Espn one thousand co host of waddle and silvy two to six every day on espn. One thousand. I am going to go and i had a list the other day on the show of seventeen quarterbacks who could be hat or who could be on the move and out of all of those if i have to pick one. I'm going to go jimmy garoppolo. I believe san francisco's in a position. Right now where they have a really good thing going and they want to replace jimi g. since he's been injury prone i think you can get jimmy g. for cheaper than he's been whether he's caught you could sign up for cheaper free agent deal. He may want to go back to new england. Maybe bella jack doesn't want him but ryan pace eastern illinois guy also Fellow good-looking guy. Just like with trubisky could veer that way as well. So i'm going jimmy g. And as a close second maybe gruden gets rid of derek carr and the bears would trade for garrett car but those are my two if you force me to pick one. I'm going with jimmy garoppolo.
Are Raiders plotting to trade Derek Carr, pursue Deshaun Watson?
"According to a report out of las vegas. The raiders are taking calls on quarterback derek. Carr it's suggested in the report that it could potentially be the beginning of a three team trade to get to shawn watson in a raiders. Uniform shannon vegas. Try and trade for sean top. Five top seven quarterback. I think you should be in the running for watson. Skip there something that's been on my mind and the bother me last week. I called you the night before and told you that has some information about about jon. L. came on the show and they're about six thirty top of the show. I said to shawn watson my sources tell me shawn watson has ashby the texans for trade and this is not. This is just being broke but this could ask a couple of weeks ago now. Adam schefter reported twenty minutes out to me that show watson to ask for trade basically saying that he's breaking the news which at and i said what transpired that he wants to go to the jets. He have a fondness for robert solid. Everybody keeps saying jason this and that so what they're trying to do. They're trying to add egg pool pork to a hamburger. That i've already made is still a hamburger. Youth and economists tried to add to the story back to this absolutely skilled. I don't this report came from chris. Simms yes okay. What transpired skill. And you said this yesterday. When he was when he was talking to the press conference the player he said the player of the the new england syria away to new caserio said the player yes he must have realized how it sounded his head because he started saying shaw desha. It's too late. You everything off his thing and our to our for everything to my agent day google level but anyway skill yes they should skip. I just got always got the impression. That jon gruden wasn't as far the derek carr. I don't know what it is. I could be totally wrong but it. Just something about yeah. He's good but i don't really know if he can take me to where i need to go. I am making ten million dollars. The i do have one hundred dollar contract. And we haven't been to the play. So i'm as you can be viewed as a failure skill for thirty million dollars ain't got nothing to show for it. And there's a lot of have to do with his defense. They print his lands. Twenty fourth and thirtieth last three years are good bradley the off season he so you look at it. They're waller. it's a top three tight end. They got josh jacobs. Who made the pro bowl again. If i'm not mistaken hillary rodham. He nice receiving corps offensive. Line is solid. Yeah john was. It will be a major player for them. And in this offense again. It's the west coast system skip. It'd be foolish not to try
Thirty-two NFL Awards
"Every week on this podcast given out. Nfl awards app. The week is over. This could be a bit ambitious but thirty two teams thirty two awards. Let's go we're gonna call this one the best six and ten team of all time award but the washington football team stepped up so now he renamed it already way to change the word on the fly in the moment with breaking news the best seven and nine team of all time award the washington football team now can we say that definitively it may be too early to say last year tampa atlanta both went seventy nine. Those teams didn't even make the playoffs so the early lean is that washington could be the great one of all time. But we don't know yet. Speaking of that game. The clockwork orange award goes to the new york giants because they had to watch i at one point. This season banned myself from nfc east games. I said i wouldn't watch any until the teams are over five hundred. I watch step drop sixty two instead of being super locked into washington philadelphia. And i don't feel like i miss much. I know there's a lot of controversy would get that. Maybe a little bit later but imagine having your eyeballs taped open like clockwork orange and being a member of the giants having to watch that game. Nate sub-field now. Look we can sit here and be upset about it but you could have gone seven nine and got into the playoffs. So how sorry. Can you really feel for the giants the skeletons on the zahara award. Yes some of these awards. We referenced. his some won't get boy when you do get a weird one. You're gonna go man. I get that all right. That award goes to the. Las vegas raiders. Because at the beginning it looked promising. Nice little boat trip trade. Some spices await were crashing into rocks. Not a big deal here. Some locals gathering on the beach here to help nope now. We're marching to our own death in africa so it was very pro gruden. Hey maybe this gruden guy knows what he's doing and then you're like wait. Does this actually suck again. The drought continues. The raiders have not won a playoff game. Since two thousand to the notre dame award that goes to the green bay packers great record high green. Bay's really good. They're thirteen three though the one seat but nobody outside of their own fan base is rooting for this team. Not only because of the history of hatred. Although i imagine there's way more anti notre dame stuff out there than it is anti green bay but no one trusts you. Yes you're thirteen and three but that's three. Nfc conference championship game losses in the six seasons. A couple down years. They've turned this thing around. They are the one seed. But everybody's kind of overt already before. It's even started the parent's weekend award that goes to the new orleans saints. You guys know the deal parents weekend. There's a dad he wants to stay out with you guys. And he's older he's a little beat up and you're like i don't know like we're going to go out. We can't say no. We respect him too much. It doesn't look great. Doesn't make a ton of sense on paper there's some bad stats in there. But you have to let them do it. You have to let them try and the thing is is you and your buddies like there's no way does this is going to end well. The iceman award that goes to the dallas cowboys man and dangerous. What is with this jolt. A don't let us get hot. This is insanity when this was part of the story lines throughout the cowboys broadcast. Yes you on three in a row. Cincinnati san francisco and philadelphia yay. Then you lost the giants at home. You came in eleventh in the nfc but if you were to get in look out. This is now. It's our time you were eleventh in your own conference dangerous. You had sixteen games to prove that you're only dangerous to your fan. Base is or perhaps the understanding of what the word danger beans the g. league award san francisco forty niners. They had twenty eight players. At one point on i r or another injury cova list which was most in the league. They use the most. I are slots. They lost the most games to injury in the nfl. And even with losing record my coach. kyle shanahan. i can't believe how competitive they were. All season law the dabble award. That goes to kirk cousins in the vikings bike. He's gonna win. Nah no one really cares are one in five star people already over this team so their disappointing season was so disappointing so early that it was just all of a sudden just completely off the radar even though they turn some things around there a bit in the middle of the season with dalvin cook but watching cousins dance reminded me of daboh announcing his tiktok account hickory vickery dot mouse ran up the clock coast. Sweeney's got that drill and now he's on tiktok.
Blame Jon Gruden for the Raiders’ loss to the Dolphins... but do it for the right reason
"Raiders lost to miami. Las vegas raiders are now seven and eight. They missed the playoffs again. This year and the blame has got to go on. Jon gruden their head. Coach I i like jon gruden. I think there have been moments where he's done a good job preparing his team to play. I thought the highlight of the year for las vegas. Raiders was beating the kansas city chiefs. They looked very well prepared. That a great game plan But again this loss to miami coach. The recent failures by the raiders has to go on. Jon gruden you're gonna blame jon gruden for the loss. Make sure you do it for the right reason. So all the attention after this game has gone onto john. Gruden's late dame decision making against miami. Where the raiders had the ball first and goal on the eight yard line with a minute and fifty five seconds left. And the raiders chose to not score a touchdown they had. I mean they first of all they had the running back. Josh jacobs literally taking the other one yard line that he slid down to avoid scoring and did not want a touchdown would have given them a six point lead because they had they were down gas. Were down twenty four twenty five so they didn't want to have a six point lead. They wanted to take as much time off the clock as possible then on third and goal derek carr literally kneeled to continue to run the clock down and they kicked field goal. Giving them a twenty five to twenty three lead with nineteen seconds. Left in the game and people are critical. The strategy like you should have done other stuff. You should've taken the touchdown you should've done. Whatever coulda woulda should say whatever you want to say. I don't think this is the reason to criticize john. Gruden every once in a while you have a strategy. That is a good strategy. That simply doesn't work. I play video. What is it not a tabletop. Game like a board game called settlers of catan a giant nerd and my family. We all play during christmas. And i had a great strategy of putting my game pieces on the the number eight. Meaning that if you have to you have a high percentage chance of rolling in eight like you would think yeah. It's literally six and eight or two of the highest six eight and seven like the highest possible. Things could roll when you're rolling. Two dice and eighths just never got role but i waited and waited my whole strategy revolves around rolling eight with these two dice. And it didn't happen. And i don't know this the probability or whatever. I just know that on paper. That's a good strategy. Like eight gets rolled all the time and this game. It was an anomaly. It didn't happen and that happens sometimes every once in a while you good strategy that for one reason or another. There's an anomaly. And it doesn't work out
Raiders lose QB Carr, fall in overtime to Chargers, Herbert
"And chargers from last night chargers rookie justin herbert having himself a seasoning looked. Great again is quarterback sneak in overtime helped. The chargers win the raiders however their woes continued they lost derek carr early on replaced by marcus. Mariota was nice to see him in there. You look good look. Good enough raiders. Lose again it's four of five now in the loss column for them with their playoff hopes. All but dead coach. Genie is joining the conversation this morning. Good coach good morning but nick. I want to start with you. This raiders started six and three. They your chiefs. They were rolling what happened. How did this team fall apart. One second just very quickly. I'm happy for marcus. mariota chance. I thought he played well. I in came. Maybe gets an opportunity to compete for a starting quarterback job. It's always conducted himself well in this league and obviously didn't work out in tennessee. So i'm happy for him. Now to the raiders. Nobody likes somebody to say. I told you so. But i told you so. Everyone's like oh nick right and such a hater oh after they lost to the chiefs game on dvd. And everyone. everyone's congratulating the raiders though. They're dangerous they're scary. Oh they've given the chiefs try. They beat them once second done. And what i tell you. They're going to be the best team to miss. The i might be wrong about that. Not even sure. They're better than the vikings so they're going to be one of the best teams to miss the playoffs coach. They have a fancy new stadium in vegas. They haven't read. What fans there next year when fanshawe do you think they'll have one banner for beating the chiefs or two banners for beating the chiefs and almost beating the chiefs a second time as those are the two best moments of the gruden era. I'm not sure because this team has been terrible. Since they played the chiefs the second time some would say the chiefs still their soul. I don't know. I wouldn't go that far but i know their defense stinks their quarterback. Okay and jon. Gruden falls apart in the second half a season. These are things i know. And some of sought coming other people thought. Irina haters happened to the raiders. And do i take joy in the raiders failures. Yeah i do actually quite a bit. Where's that victory now. how about that. Where's your victory lap. Now remember that moment of arrowhead that your
NFL Insider Dan Graziano Breaks Down Week 11
"Dan graziano it is eleven fifty eight. Pm eastern so. Thank you very much man for staying up late behind. After that game. I go right to sleep. That was exciting. Dan graziano is an espn nfl insider. And he will get to sleep soon. We promise fired for game like that. Yeah me too i mean. Let's get into this right off the top here the chiefs. Just beat the raiders. Thirty five to thirty one. They beat the team who is beating kansas city. This season dan back in week. Five about a million years ago. So were you watching for in this rematch tonight. Well to see if they can do it again right. I mean that sounds simple. But like i didn't think their victory over kansas city was a fluke because it seemed like they had kind of a formula that they went out and they stuck to. They didn't win but a certainly could have. And i think that's that's significant because they know that's the team that is in their way in their division. Obviously they're on top of the conference in the league as super bowl champion. So you see the raiders. Draft a running back in the first round last year. That can help them. Control the clock and keep mahomes on the sideline like they did in the first game. They played they draft the speedy wide receiver this year in the first round. That can stress their quarterbacks. I mean they're thinking about the chiefs all the time. They're certainly not on that level at this point as the records indicate but they've constructed a team that can play in a way that threatens the chiefs and it might be able to beat them. So they're not as different as you might inclined to think yet and i have to admit like the difference between pat mahomes and derek carr felt smaller than i ever realized it would tonight. What did you see from these two quarterbacks total commanded of the offense which has not always been him. And certainly since gruden's been there. We've seen a lot more ups and downs. Where he looked like he was a little bit. Lost a little bit uncertain But this is years three with gruden and when gruden got there he talked about competent car up and making sure that car believed he was the guy. So that when you know. When ben came together around him he would be the guy that was in total control of things. And and it seems to be coming to fruition. What he's got. He's got people to throw to nelson agholor like out of nowhere as having a career renaissance in las vegas. He's got two very running back. Got a great offensive line. And i think you know he's playing with a lot of confidence as you would expect him to give all those things now. I think he's taken a big job this year in terms of where. He ranks in terms of the quarterbacks. We feel confident about what we watched the did feel like gruden kinda new like no. It's sunday night football. Let's give the people something that they'll enjoy. What did you most enjoy from. Hearing those play called why. I our love to know what the purple walrus was and i mean i think there are some vegas ones like he dropped. The sammy davis in there at one point and then and then it sounded like they've been paying very close attention to the nba off-season because there are a number of james harden and those who among nfl coaches knows how to produce primetime football. Better than jon gruden right. I mean he did it for for a decade or so for us in terms of operating in that sphere. So maybe i don't know maybe maybe he feels like a showman or maybe they're just having a lot of fun in their in their offensive meetings. They sound like all. The time does not all watching every week but was it so as showmanship goes that lasts. Drive man lake travis. Kelsey had some great moments in this game but that catch at the end mahomes calling him the best tight end in the league game. What did you see from travis kelsey tonight yeah domination. This is this. is you talk about reliability. I mean the the quarterback knows he's going to be where he's supposed to be. He knows he's almost certainly going to be open. He know he's going to catch the ball like it's total complete confidence in a guy in a key spot third down. A guy had throw to the end zone in the final minute. I mean he is the best tight end in the league. I don't think it's even close especially when you know. George kittle is on the shelf right now in the second best tight end. The league is probably the guy that was on hiller sidelines tonight. So there's there's no doubt that he in homes are in sync in a way that very few combinations like that are
Las Vegas Raiders face 'daunting task' with COVID-19 issues ahead of game vs. Kansas City Chiefs
"Kid city chiefs at eight point favorite leg. I said we'll get to that in a second on the road against the vegas raiders on this game. Fifty six and a half. We will have. John cheering on later. I'm sure he'll be able to explain whether slightly above the market pain. i have to believe. That's all covid related to be quite honest. The raiders defense in the contact tracing protocol. We're not quite sure. If i'm going to have to get called up to play safety and let me tell you my foot speed not enough to slow down tyreek hill and open spaces really wouldn't say i mean i might try and slew coming off the line. That'd be my only shot. so listen. I the raiders offensive game plan back in week five was good. Obviously but the halftime adjustments that. Paul guenther in the raiders. Defensively really is what i think won them the game. It's really what gave the chiefs offense trouble. You really hadn't seen that from the chiefs offense before during this. Patty mahomes like run especially against the defense of that caliber. You go back to week. Five in the second half. Kansas city was successful. Only twenty one percent of their snaps. One point to carry twenty eight percent success rate through their moms is pressured. A ton the raiders. Were able to do something in that game. They hadn't been able to do most of the season which is get pressure vegas. Twenty six on the season pass rush win rate and then obviously after a few good games. Recently where the raiders have been able to apply some pressure to quarterbacks. They've surged to an average defense in pressuring the week. Five game if you look at some of these numbers. Mahomes was pressured on forty. Seven percent of total dropbacks specifically from eleven personnel. Were kansas city. Essentially lives seventy three percent of the time moms pressured on fifty seven percent of those three wide sets. I would envision off the bye with the little extra motivation of not. Just losing to the raiders but but kansas city not being really happy about gruden and the gang taken victory laps around the the stadium there drivers using using the loudspeaker thereafter the week. Five win that Andy reid is probably gonna come with a pretty good game plan here and you know past the success that andy. Reid is hat off the bye. You mentioned this. The raiders are are probably going to be without a few key defenders but You know another handful of defensive players are going to miss practice all week due to this contact tracing. It's probably isn't the offense that you wanna face short handed in in pissed off and not having practiced to four. I would think. I also believe we'll probably see a little more play action for mandatory. You know patty mahomes in the chiefs past game will probably fair little bit. Better here with play action. Especially if if the pressure starts to barrel down. I would also think that it's worth mentioning that three chiefs offensive lineman or on the cova the list it's believed to be contact tracing but we'll have to see this certainly make this game a little bit different. If if all three of those offensive lineman are out. You also expect sammy. Watkins to return in this game us a full practice participant on wednesday so he should be a full ghost that they're gonna have their their complement of weapons out there. The number in this thing is is really interesting. But i think that this tougher makes a lot of sense. I i just don't see. Kansas city's offense not bouncing back here in a major way talk. i mean. They're playing with a chip on their shoulder. Which is always dangerous to begin with. We've seen their passing offense. That was more a work in progress. Probably the nicest way to put it early on in the season and no doubt that was by design. Get on track with mahomes during for more than eight hundred yards the last two games when you look at the way. Mahomes performed against the raiders. Fifteen total touchdowns just two interceptions one of them of course coming earlier this year the chiefs loss as a double digit home favor and i think it's pretty staggering to know what costs kansas city. That game is the fact that hey look. They finished a net negative minus sixty four in terms of rushing yards. The raiders held the ball for nearly eleven minutes longer and kansas city knows that they can hit the home runs. That are widely available. If they keep mahomes operate i think. The raiders passing defenses. You mention it may trending in the right direction. There's no doubt a lot of optimism out here around the raiders especially on the defensive side of the ball. This is a different beast that they're going to try and counter and with sammy watkins back amongst others. I just don't know where the raiders consistently find a way to get off the field. I agree with that. And i get it. You have to young corners in trayvon mullin in our net and people are thinking to themselves like. Hey we're trending in the right direction. We're starting to get some pressure. Would you look you play at the browns. The total is suppressed because of weather and wind. You're at the chargers. It's likely a a lost game. If two guys can hold onto football on the back corner fate and then the broncos last week and drew lock was clearly injured after taking a hit in the second quarter but you could have been trailing at halftime in that game so listen. I think the raiders are better than we all expected. You look at who they've lost to. It's it's the bills box and patriots. All pretty good teams obviously bucks in bills being very good patriots. You know with bill tough spot. There is well off the monday night game traveling across the country. So i get the by of the raiders. I just need to see more defensively to believe it's real and so that that's kind of where i'm out on that unit. I fully expect kansas city to do some good things here. Offensively

We've all been there. Sometimes, we just don't live up to our potential former Fed economist Claudia Psalm says it's kind of like what happened in her house this morning when her fifth grade son had to retake virtual math test the teacher knew what his potential was but and because he wanted to get done with school and play on his IPAD, he didn't put in the time and do his best work. Some says it's the same with the economy. The output gap is the difference between what the economy is actually doing versus what it could do before cove it in recent years.

Jon Grudens Raiders and Tom Bradys Bucs: A Special Relationship
"Paul duty as I have a question for you where are you right now? I am in an RV at an RV park in Las Vegas and barring my mom and dad's RV while I'm here covering the now Las Vegas Raiders Paul Gutierrez not only covers the raiders for ESPN. He's written a book about Raiders Fandom and followed the team Vegas kind of living like. A little bit. Paul I of about fifty fall of questions about what life in that our views like. But it does feel like the ability to pick up and react to sudden schedule changes is especially important to covering the raiders these days starting with what's happening right now, we are talking on Thursday evening ahead of this highly anticipated raiders game, and there is a Kovic scenario that you've been covering in depth so. What do we know about the game schedule? What do we know about who's playing or who is not playing? Basically, what has happened is is right tackle. Trent Brown tested positive for covert. Now as part of the protocols here anybody who's deemed a high risk contact with him has to self isolate for at least five days plus one which would be the. Last point of contact, which was practice on Monday they are all there. They were all there together It's the raiders entire starting offensive line, plus let's just throw safety Jonathan Abram in there as well. So man, all of those guys were just placed on the covid nineteen list again doesn't mean any of them tested positive. I was actually told that none of them. But as part of the protocols they have to selfies late for five days. Another other source told me that they've been doing virtual preparation. In case they can indeed get cleared play against the buccaneers in the meanwhile, it was supposed to be a big Sunday night football game. Yes. The League wanted to make sure that that game actually happens. So they bumped the raiders out of their move Seattle in Arizona into that spot. So a game will happen well, guess what if you guys I just mentioned you consistently Test negative on their Cova test the rest of the week and then again Sunday. Morning will then they'll be cleared to play. But at what time? Sunday morning Oh. Yeah. kickoffs at one o'clock. So the backstory all that as well. I gotTA catch my breath here when I started figure this out understandably. Yeah. They on their fifty three man roster. They currently have five backup offensive lineman. That's WHO's been trodden. They've been trying out there in practice every day. That's who Derek Carr has been had protecting him. That's who Josh Jacobs has been trying to run holes through those five guys plus they also have two guys on the practice squad that they could suit up if need be. So as we sit here right now on on Thursday late afternoon the raiders starting offensive line is anchored by Andre James and if you need to know who that is I got a couple of media guides for you can look about. Paul Creek me. If I'm wrong here, but I believe this is the very first case of an entire position group being taken down by cove like I know that we've had players here and there. You put on this list but in terms of the magnitude of what the raiders are facing with the offensive line, this feels extreme. Yeah. An and it's part of the protocol. Really. Because only one guy really has tested positive but it's out of the abundance of caution which we've heard a lot of since since the pandemic hit right you've got to self isolate you gotta make sure you don't test positive or show any symptoms, and even if you don't show any symptoms, still self isolate because you could be symptomatic. It's just very bizarre. It's a strange world we're living in Derek Carr said this week that you know he's been with the team for seven years seen a lot of weird things. He's this is the weirdest thing he's ever seen and it's worth noting like weird is by no means foreign to this organization even within this context I mean, I still need help Paul disentangling what exactly happened for instance with Jon Gruden their head coach who took an approach to corona virus with the team earlier this year that had me confused the media confused, and then ultimately Jon Gruden himself pretty angry at everybody. Yeah. So beginning at Camp, we show up in a media member. We have to test every day just to get in I have fifty two on my belt. All negative so far, which is a good thing Jon gruden passes out t shirts to the media with there waiting for us as we walk in the media room that say crush the virus because I was going to be his mantra he took issue with the NFL network reporting that he faked having the virus but yet kind of just went away then on the home opener on. Monday night football when he later would get fine for not wearing his mask properly, he brings it up himself and says that he never faked the virus it as a matter of fact, he did have it. So he talked about just how it was not fun. It made him feel bad and this is all before training camp. When he said he he went through this and beat it in in that. He has the utmost respect for it and he still wants to crush it in beat it into the ground like it was some sort of opponent.

You'll know my answer I'm a little delayed on right now. How are you guys feeling for Andrew to eleven? Will you upgrade immediately or will you wait a bit Let's start with you Dunkin. I'm curious to hear about your stance on this. So I woke up this morning in Australia to Jason's tweet sign that he got the the update spend the update button. Had it installed within about fifteen minutes? So I was jumping straight on board. I didn't. I didn't do any of the Betas. So I've been waiting for this dying for quite some time. So I was very much looking forward to it of any had a little while to play with it, but I think my top free three phages in odor is the Powellmania that is absolutely fantastic. Especially, the home control about a lot of high motivation, and so that's made using that really simple. Next would be the media edification having a consistent rich Ui for controlling that is fantastic and I'm excited by the idea of the conversations notification bubble so much convince at the compensation Gruden. And this another non switches in there as well. But Not Straight on board my problems IFA. And those who opt out using Google Pie wondering if it's GonNa, break it so far. It hasn't Google play sins very tribal when you update. That's good. What Jason What are your the other one here with a pixel. Couple of pixels actually like I saw a news. Thunder Geez.

I ordered the Pixel for a for a last week on a on a whim as a it's time for a change. I've had this I've been on one plus for the last at least a year plus or so.

So I might get it might get android eleven plus seven before I get the fix foray but either way I'll get there eventually
Loving Ourselves Into Healing
"Stay in welcome. It feels really lovely to begin with that Nama stay as as many of you know anonymous day means I see the divine in you and in me in an all being shin what an amazing way to. To encounter ourselves in the world. You probably know that in the West instead of novice day the handshake that open hand showing on that you're not carrying a gun. It's such a it's such a big difference, and so this is one cultural appropriation that our world desperately needs this one of a sincere anonymous day. This is. Part two of a series of talks I'm not sure how many on radical love. Radical. Love is a love that that season cherishes the shape gruden each live. The way the sacred lives through us. And I thought, maybe I'd start with the perspective of young Human Caesar. Some. Comments on love by little people aged five through nine. Glenn Age seven says a fallen in loves anything like learning how to spell I. Don't WanNa do it. It takes too long. Manual age eight I, think you're supposed to get shot with an Arrow or something, but the rest of it is supposed to be so painful. Love is the most important thing in the world but baseball's pretty good too. That's Greg Aj. I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when dinosaurs is on television that's Gel h six. Love is foolish but I still might try sometime. That's floyd. Aged nine one more. To people promised to go through sickness and illness and disease together. That's Marlin Age Dan. There you're gonNA see a little bit the imprint of our culture on our sense of what love is and will probably stage of development to. Radical. Love is fully evolve in the first talk I that game on this really reflected radical love is as the expression of true spiritual awakening and also the grounds of meaningful social transformation. Many no, it's the heart of the civil rights movement of black lives matters. Really, of all movements that seek A. Compassionate world at the core of them is this love and reverence of live. So We in that I talk we reflected on the the barriers really what stops. And how to begin to deepen our attention. This talk I thought we'd continue by looking at. The primary layer of our barriers to love and it's really. Our reaction to the life we call self the live. That's right here. And as we know far from that that Phnom stay that honoring or. Cherishing the life right here were often in great resistance whether it's the form of neglect or judgment or hatred or shame, but we don't have. A very evolved and loving relationship with ourselves for the most part. So it feels really critical to look at this like how can we? Move towards more tenderness, more open heartedness with our own be. And the key understanding is. That you can't be down on yourself for war with yourself. and embrace the world because the life that's right here is part of the world. So. I thought I'd be gin with a story. Some of you at least will remember from way back at civil the teen Rabbit Marie little to you. Real isn't how you're made said the skin horse. It's a thing that happens to a child loves you for a long long time, not just to play with, but really loves you then you become real. Does. It hurt the rabbit. Sometimes said the skin horse for he was always truthful. When you're real, you don't mind being hurt. Does it happen all at once like being wound up he astor bit by bit. It doesn't happen all at once the skin horse you become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily or have sharp edges are have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time, you are real most of your hair's been loved off and your eyes drop out you get loose in the joints super shabby. But these things don't matter at all because once you're real, you can't be ugly. except. To people who don't understand.
"gruden" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Football Music always gets you excited and is the Monday night football all music the best sports specific music ever produced better than the Fox seem Fox football team that slowed down when there's an injury yeah. I think it's better than even the ESPN up about uplink gets better because look. Can we start that over again or you're not allowed to play twice to have the right to call. We've spent a lot of money for Monday night. Football let it ride whoa worth it. I mean it doesn't it doesn't get better than that. This was the best this once upon a time in America cosell would give the highlights to this and it was the only place you could get them. It was the only place you can get 'em cosell would be doing Monday night. Football on you wouldn't have seen any in any of the other games and he was bringing it to you for the first time. I also put it on the Pole Guillermo at Lebatardshow show who looks like a bigger fool today Jon Gruden or Antonio Brown because John Bruins last move with Antonio Brown was just a kiss his butt and then maybe or maybe he not get illegally taped while doing it also put on the poll. Is there anything better during football season then mocking your friends team because we have here an assortment of losers that is breathtaking. Mike Ryan has has gotten buried because his beloved browns came out of the box out of against the titans team that while it has Delaney Walker and Delaney Walker shirtless. It's scary he looks it's like a piece of granite that Titan seem is always middle of the road and they came into your season of great expectations and beach by thirty Chris Cody team the Miami Dolphins are clearly the worst team to ever play football. There are Minor League football team. The Ravens have never scored that many points in a regular season game game. The dolphins have never scored allowed that many points in a regular season football game saddest Dolphin Games since Dan Marino lost sixty two seven after which might Floreal reports that several dolphins already want betrayed which is breathtaking not that you do not see after one game. A bunch of people like get me out live here if that's true. The shocking part is there's dozens that still want to be with the team had strew. Actually yeah actually put that on the poll as well gamma. What's more surprising using that. Many dolphins are asking to be traded after week one or that many dolphins are willing to say. Lamar Jackson last year or this is a true fact he went to televised hours the last time we saw him play without being able to complete pass it went into the offseason with US wondering Ken this guy. Throw the football yesterday today. He went one televised our without an incompletion. I still don't know though was the dolphins right now. I know I would say the dolphins are bad but what you saw from Lamar. Jackson was quite the leap I mean he was very accurate downfield. Now of course of course it's going to be diluted some by the fact that the dolphins pass rush. They had a career three or five and a half sacks along that defensive line. You don't get any pressure on Lamar. You don't get any pressure on anyone in that sport. They're gonNA do something like that to you. But who's this Hollywood guy man Hollywood brown running behind the dolphins best the strength of the dolphins team such that it is was supposed to be the secondary thinking of which put this on the poll as well geared at Lebatardshow has sean Jackson been ten in yards behind the secondary for two decades and then there's the waste to gossip team law so stu gods was texting me throughout the game and he's doing the only times through his good at math is when he's counting up how it is the jets are GonNa lose so I spent the second half yesterday getting tax what's from STU gods that simply red here comes the one point loss was sixteen sixteen three and then it was sixteen like you did the math at had sixteen threes right here comes the one point law. I did the math at six nothing after the jets miss that extra point that Norwegian kicker the bills and the jets have been playing that game for so long forever and we talked about this a little bit in the local hour. I want you guys to imagine imagine as Antonio Brown ends up in New England what Bill Belichick's reaction was to watching the AFC east one o'clock games yesterday. Eh I think about that as Antonio Brown comes and gives them like Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman and Gronk go probably unretire in the middle of the season because why not yep you could argue. This is the most talented Patriot team they've ever had either of course I can of course I mean Tonio Brown to marry his Thomas Julian Edelman. It's Josh Gordon only a couple of hopes for the league okay. There are three of them. Actually one game samples injuries you know injuries are always a part of that and the outlier it was the Best Patriots team of our lifetime lost in the Super Bowl but those are the three hopes like you're not you saw last night. You saw what happened to Ben Rothlisberger when he doesn't have his weapons and now one of his weapons. The best weapon that he had is going to join Tom Brady the chiefs. I would say maybe a hope yeah but the the the single though most impressive Patriots victory of my lifetime with them going into Kansas City and beating that Kansas City team with a quarterback who had thrown fifty touchdown pass but if so do doesn't jump off side we're talking about Kansas City and that's who I'm right but he did and the Patriots and Patriots team didn't have it Tony Brown or Josh Gordon for that matter and that's that's a retail is out for a while well that was it only two broken collarbone yesterday. Football have a good day with only two broken collar bones. Ah GonNa Make Fun of Mike Ryan here though because everyone doing that. Is everyone crushing. I'm not used to this. I'm not used to it. The browns have lost plenty of football games over the last few years since twitter's been invented and I've never seen anything like the jubilee that many people are taking not just on general timelines but my personal attacks in my mentions if you could please just ease on up come on guys it's sports. Were all here to have fun. Where you you expecting different. I mean I mean what we do outside. It just got every magazine cover. was there a third team in the sport. That got laughed at yesterday or was it. Just the dolphins often in the browns like was people were laughing at the jets. They were our expectations for the jets team yeah like they had a disastrous offseason. They lost a lot of talent Alan and that's as bad as we've seen them play in a big game that was funny to watch though because now they add Antonio Tonio Brown and billy is making arguments on behalf of Antonio Brown being a genius not a fool a genius that's right. That's where the scale is right now again. The scale shifts from moment to moment basically any Antonio Brown action will shift the scale and it's been quite a roller coaster for the scale it started you know I I was confused at the beginning and I felt bad for him. Saturday Thursday was trending towards wow. This is funny then Saturday. I was like what are you doing. I'm worried about your mental health then yesterday yesterday. It went all the way to well. I guess Saturday night when all the way to genius no false you see this is the thing it's it's constantly moving Saturday. I was like Whoa what's going on and then yesterday morning when Moore reported that he hired a consultant to tell him how to get released. That's when it went to genius more also reported the Gruden found that funny when that video came out and I think that whoever was giving more that information was probably trying to conceal John Gruden's and you know protect Jon Gruden somehow because how can you be the coach of that football team and and be so oblivious that you think it's funny that Antonio Brown Brown put a released video a super Polish Nike Video that essentially betrays you and what appears to be a private conversation rating. Britain was just trying to get to Monday. That's it. He was just trying to get to today so Antonio Bracket. GonNa play for the raiders but billy is right. It's genius remember the steelers they refused to deal with the Patriots. As it relates the way Tony O'Brien so Antonio Brown took the long route but eventually got to the place he wanted to get to and that's playing alongside future team any but it costs him all of his dignity okay. Please don't forget that like I wasn't that long ago week fifteen last year. None of us thought he was a clown. Show like none of us thought that it cost him his name. Don't forget that all of you who are pointing out that he's getting the same money. I'm dressed as a rat who cares donlevatar. I feel terrible. Here's thing with you. You don't actually feel terrible. I didn't feel thank you know. I don't really care care. I know you announcing. I feel terrible as just your way to move onto the next thing you're GONNA do Stugatz. They're just words and words mean nothing. They don't mean nothing his words words words words are just transitions to your next lie. That's so right. They're not words they are bridges.
"gruden" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Jon Gruden Jason win. She to do a job. Swap. On the raiders are make these trade having let me say something about that. There were rumors. The Jason Witten Tennessee grad was gonna be the new Tennessee head football coach. And so there was interest. There were rumors, and I think Jason Witten had a little interest in that. So maybe that would be the right move Gruden back to the booth and Whitten to the sideline. Yeah. It's crazy. No one asks my opinion. But when I heard rumors of grooten leaving Monday night football. Are you doing? It is the best job go, and you're killing it would new challenge do you need? And now we realized not going so well where he landed. Funny thing is that John grooten being the coach of the raiders, this is what they paid them for to take this hail to take these hits that ten million dollars is nothing book cushion from everybody who is shooting at the raiders because they only have one win. So right through man. I think ESPN would throw in the booger mobile to Oakland as well to get Gruden bed. This the mobile not booger booger mobile blocking everybody sees. This book a hot dog. Okay. Laugh at that. Hot dog coming. Bigger spice. Go ahead. Right who've been onto a little bit more serious than I want to hear it thoughts on his press school coach rant that went viral after one these players decided to transfer some pretty rough language here. But take a listen. I. Control where you go. It could be back the heating. That's how easy it is. For me. You don't want. One thing..
"gruden" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Remember not. I'm bet you forgot. I do remember that. I remember to who's Herschel Walker, but go ahead. Khalil Mack Goan. They didn't get nothing for Khalil. Jimmy johnson. Got a lot for Herschel gave you and is probably a perfect parallel. But let's keep going. So now, we're seeing Jon Gruden on the one win team probably gonna end up one. If it teen that these guys out there feeling and five under five hundred ball for Jimmy Johnson in his first few years who knows what Jon Gruden is expecting until they get to Vegas, but all of a sudden popped and it popped big for Jimmy Johnson. We all know that the issues we him and ownership gotten away of that continuing to develop, but we've seen precedent before where someone comes in with the elements. You're describing that you say is impossible to survive in win and thrive and Jimmy Johnson. Did it now Jon Gruden has a different task? Because what he's looking at his trying to cleanse the roster at the same time keep the spirit alive, and then try to restore that that's a difficult task in a different era. But we have seen it once before clans Ross. Where did you you get rid of a Khalil Mack? He was a great team guy. He was what did you cleansing Arasa for John group like McVeigh? He's a nice looking dude he can beat the star. If he wants to he takes a backseat because he wants his players to being a forefront grew wants to be an affront. Hey, look at me. How to start a team? It's all about me McVay can do that if he chooses to better looking to Gruden and right now is team is hotter than Gruden. And if he wants to be the star he can he takes a back seat. He lets his players get what you said is one hundred percent, correct. Jon Gruden wants to be the star. He wants to make automobile. I me personally. I don't see the raiders turning this around at all he asked ten years, you would hope and ten years thing turn it around. But will they give him ten years? Like I'd getting three years if he doesn't have it training in the right direction in three years. He gotta go initially. I read this. And I'm like, and it's not all about being the star is that's not it. And then. The more the more you kept reading. I'm like, okay, man. That makes sense that makes sense. And then I started trying to think of other coaches that were out front that were bigger than their team. And I could not get any. On this level as you specifically eloquently put in the NFL now, college football different scenario, professional sports, the players mean more than the coach because the coach is expendable. You can't get rid of fifty three guys at one time. You probably could it wouldn't it wouldn't work out. Right. So when I look at this. I'm like, maybe that is it maybe that is his his problem. He wants to be the guy he wants all the attention. But I wouldn't understand. I don't understand why he would get rid of somebody on the other side of the ball that you don't even deal with Khalil Mack. It just does. I think the Khalil Mack decision should be removed because that was a decision. I think out of his hand what is in his hand is accepting a ten year contract that you have to be smart enough to know because here's the difference between colleges and the pros everybody in that pro locker room coaches and players alike..
"gruden" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"It was a battle of bad teams last night when the forty Niners hosted the raiders the Niners looked pretty good behind Nick Mullins and his NFL debut. Molins threw three touchdown passes in thirty four to three win and their car was sacked seven times the raiders are now very disappointing one and seven, but despite all that Jon Gruden is still optimism take a listen, Oakland, Raiders is a great organization. I know it's not looking pretty right now. But I've heard a lot of negativity over the last six or seven months, and rightfully so. But we're going to build a championship football team here. And I know a lot of people as players as fans and. Just in general want to be part of this. I think the brand of the raiders is an exciting one. And I think a lot of players no doubt do wanna play for for us in the future. And I'm not gonna speculate any further than that, Shannon. That was a rough one last night Gruden turn this told you skip Bayless he was caught in a time of the nineteen ninety eight it is not nineteen ninety eight. So it's over. Oh, should I just fire? Hold on. Talk. Me. You. For your input a rhetorical question. Didn't they this is my time? Let me have my moment groom supporter, but look real bad. What you're you're calling me out. So I had to call you back. The only thing that he's building the deficit Mark Davis bake account because he gave him ten you that one hundred million dollars. And I thought one hundred million dollars buy you a lot. It doesn't what it used to. I guess specially wind now I can assure you with Mark Davis came to interview for this job. Even if he did interview nothing about a rebuilding process. Alex, not when he said when he took the press conference, he said the raiders of back just lose baby just lose baby. The new models. Amazing spider Waku banana sounds good. When you're an analyst at the fan. But when you have to call into the real day. It doesn't work. Then what skill you use that one day? I will use it again gift what he used. He used all he could do it. Oh, he got you. Oh, this guy. Right. He'll car. Gotcha. He Mark Davis wallets shame.

Hey, everybody to build the house doesn't get to live in its beta architect, right law. Right. But a lot of things all of them. So he didn't just because he didn't win with their Gruden build his first time around in Oakland. L David, David. You don't do. You don't do that.

"But when you hire a TV analyst, who for ten years is a performer, like joy was a waitress for a decade when joy goes to the restaurant after quitting waitressing. She starts pre bussing because it's hard to turn it off forever. Jon Gruden for a decade was a TV performer. You don't mumble. You don't give short answers. You explain. You define you give long enters and it's hard to turn that off. He is still got television analyst in him, and he keeps stepping in it because he believes he has to give a TV answer. No, no, no. Bill Belichick yesterday was asked a question about a book about him. It's got all sorts of juicy details. It's a biography on Bill Belichick. It's that talk at the NFL, but bills never been a TV analyst and would probably be a lousy one and felt no need to perform for the media. Biography of Louis coming out this month finger dissipate. Sure. It's. Because I don't have anything to do with. Focus right now in Detroit, two thousand eighteen football season, like tried to job on that. The football coach who's been up performer is still performing, and this is why I always had questions about Jon Gruden. He's not just football coach. He's a television star, and he was damned good. He's a football coach now, but he is struggling to turn off the TV star performer Bella check who's never been one. Here's the question. He turned it on mute. No reason to give the media an inch. There's a big difference, hard enough to be out of this sport for ten years, but grooms going to have to figure this out because he stepped in again yesterday set himself up to be ripped because he started talking about how hard it is to find pass rushers.

"America world's best pizza. I keep hearing the John gruden's a quarterback guru. He had nine quarterbacks in Tampa. None developed into stars. He had four quarterbacks in Oakland, rich Gannon won an MVP the year after Gruden left. You know what I think happened. He was the first TV analyst. To really talk only quarterbacks. He created that quarterback camp over at the other place. Now, I talked quarterbacks now dilford talks quarterbacks. Now ten twelve years ago. Jon Gruden was the first analyst that Brandon himself. I'm a quarterback guru and we all know how business works. I in matters. And so I think it's taken his brand in his reality and Trump it up. I don't get it in. Here's the irony of it. There is a quarterback guru in the National Football League, and there's nobody close to him. Oh, my bad. There is one guy close to him. Geographically, Kyle Shanahan lives across the bridge from the quarterback guru. Kyle Shanahan Kern match shop into a pro bowler, bust RG three into rookie of the year. He turned Matt Ryan into new an MVP and Jimmy Garoppolo last year was five zero with them. I can also throw a Brian Hoyer Cleveland stat, and it was the last time. Cleveland was interesting. Brian Hoyer was a quarterback. Kyle Shanahan was the order back coach. We do have a quarterback guru and unlike world's best pizza best. Chilly in town. Best hamburger in Los Angeles. I've actually got proof beyond a yelp review. I've got data. I'm not anti Gruden, but quarterback guru. We got one of the bay area.

"gruden" Discussed on The Stinkin' Truth with Mark Schlereth
"My friend, I am doing well looking. Ford to Jon Gruden Chucky cookies back and he's coming to our town here in Denver, and everybody's all excited about the return of Jon Gruden are you? I listen, here's the thing I love. Here's the thing that you have to understand about coaching. We get to this coaching tree up Bill, Bella check, you know? And we say, well, none of his coaches, whether it was Charlie weis or Romeo Cornell or Josh mcdaniels you know, now all of a sudden you get blown out in your first game. Matt, Patricia can't coach and. I think one of the big things you gotta understand is authenticity. You gotta be authentic. You gotta be you. You can't come in and be a Bill Belichick disciple, and all of a sudden thank you Bill Belichick and be bell check in, you know, and back in New England, we did in back in New England and back in New England and back in New England and eventually players go shut up. I'm sick of here. I don't like New England. I'm sick of hearing about, you know, back in New England, you did this. You know what really one you games back in New England as guy named Tom Brady is back in New England. So quick, give me the back in New England stuff, right? But I think coaches fall into that. And then all of a sudden the perception is you're just fake one thing about Jon Gruden and like I was around Jon Gruden for years at ESPN, did a lot of things with Jon Gruden over the years. That whole Chucky thing is not an act. That's that's exactly the way he talks. That's exactly how he is. That's. I mean, that's what he is. The thing that the guy you saw on television, whether it was the quarterback Cam thing that he did on ESPN or Monday night football. It's exactly the way he is. That's the way he talks. Although, you know there's a far more course words that are thrown out there during the course of day-to-day basis when he's not on television, but that's exactly the way he operates. So one thing about Jon Gruden is he's authentic Mike. And to me, that's why ultimately he'll be successful because he is authentic. Now, coaches like that. There's usually kind of two types of players that play for him. He's my best coach, the best coach I've ever had our, he's the worst coach I've ever had. You can either handle his personality handle him getting, you know, in your ass on a consistent basis, you can handle that or you can't handle that, but I'll give this to to Chucky men. He is exactly who you see. Okay. Yeah, I don't doubt that he's authentic as a personality, but I just think that his impact is a coach is overrated because if you go back to his last six years in Tampa, he was a below five hundred coach. He was oh into in the playoffs. What we know is that. He can win with good players. He want a Super Bowl with a team that here inherited in Tampa. He's like every other decent coach in the NFL. You're only as good as your players and Oakland is, as you said, the oldest team in the NFL and they don't have the kind of talent that they need. They just got rid of maybe their most talented player and Khalil Mack. And I just think that raider nation is getting sold a bit of a con here that they're being sold on the mystique of Gruden, which is really kind of an illusion. You know what I mean? It's kind of like you'll pay no attention to the wizard, the man behind the curtain. And so I think raider fans are thinking that they're getting this impact with Gruden when when all you're getting is a guy that I think Mark Davis hired to simply serve as the diversion until the raiders can get to Vegas and they can start printing money money that they don't have right now as evidenced by them giving up. Wheel MAC. So I just think that the the impact of Gruden is overrated and raider fans don't seem to see that they're buying the diversion line and sinker..

"Don't get it. Listed Jon Gruden don't it's agent now. I mean his agent works, Johnny. Jon Gruden mandates that you pay him a premium mandate chip Kelly. Chip Kelly, Jeffrey Laurie. The got along with the coach for fifteen plus years. The ups and the downs lot more absolute. Andy Reid Andy's much easier to deal with stood by them. They had one of the more consistent organizations in the NFL remember chip in and how he had the famous break-up Jeffrey Lurie going into weeks, seventeen chips. Third year said chip, so the security guard up their pack, your stuff, put it in a box and get out of my building leaf chip was fire. I mean, it was a pretty famous firing within three weeks. Jed York was offering him another job. So in chips, mine. Yeah, I failed. But Jeffrey was the idiot. How was the crazy guy jed York lanning up to pay him again? Then a year later after the Niners him out because he was godawful Casey, Wasserman, one of the richer, heavy hitters in Los Angeles and Troy Aikman NFL royalty were kissing his ass to come coach at UCLA. So like Jon Gruden, how would chip Kelly have any sense of reality and have to do any inward thinking I got to improve every time he fails. People are lined up to hire, and here's the thing with both those guys. I was a little younger when Jon Gruden was coming up with the raiders. We watch all those NFL films even when he was the offense of coordin- coordinator with the eagles. He had an f. edge to them when I went through scouting the when he was coaching organ chip Kelly had a massive edge to him. Both of those guys really at something to prove it never felt like it was about the money with either. Now, a young Jon Gruden, the NFL coaches. And just in general, we're not making anywhere near what they make. Now, chip Kelly was making more money, but it never felt like when he was at Oregon, like wasn't really about the money. He had no life remembered. They were pictures of his house. He had no furniture just grinder. Well, over this period of time, Geoffrey Laurie pays them a boatload fires him to go away. Jed York is immediately there to pay him another twenty five million a year later. Casey Wasserman and Troy Aikman are lined up to pay him again. Jon Gruden has gotten so rich chip Kelly has gotten so rich. You cannot tell me both those guys that have this massive kind of, you know, chip on their shoulders proving to the world, how great they were going to be even as their ego grew in the prime of their coaching careers. They just had a massive edge to them. They carried themselves a little differently, but I think they had a lot of similarities. You cannot tell me that money and I'm not saying that they still don't work as hard. Like I said, I, I don't know if gruden's quit because they're three in the morning. But he works long hours. I, I've always heard chip works heart, not disputing their work ethic, but their EDS there, the edge that Nick Sabin the Bill Belichick that Andy Reid still has the edge for these two guys is gone. And it's because of money. They have gotten to rich. They've gotten to rich. Both of I'm watching chip Kelly, get his ask kick by Oklahoma, listen, I'm not saying UCLA should beat Oklahoma. He just looks apathetic. They're on the sideline. Just kinda stare. If Casey Wasserman Troy Aikman fired him tomorrow, he just cumulated like ninety million dollars in a six year span. What does he care to chip Kelly at Oregon? I always heard in a blowout win if he player screwing around on the sideline. He would like them up the chip. Kelly icy now doesn't have Jon Gruden. Who stood up on the podium early January one is higher. We're going to win..
"gruden" Discussed on First Things First
"Offense players the advantage that we have, we know where the ball's going, the other. Vantage that we have, we notice nap count. So this is some of the basics in football. You're going to see early in the season, so that's not gruden's lack of creativity in the second half the lack of use of Jordy Nelson and the Mari kooky Cooper. Those are all things that yes, Jon Gruden he has to be able to answer for those now as far as not having no pass rush, that would be like me empty my refrigerator, emptying all my cupboards taken all my groceries and giving it away to some people who deserve our future groceries. Yeah. And then and then and then I sit around like gin and say, I'm hungry. Because based on decisions, I'm going on a certain amount. Like the press Cup. It's like we really lacked a pass. We'll let me hold up. I understand sheet here. I want to check real quick. The twenty nineteen. First round. Pick zero quarterback hits zero secs. Twenty twenty first round pick. Oh, and the same thing, sixty million dollars of cap space. He also had zero quarterback hits, so those assets didn't really get the job done for him less now going late into the fourth quarter where the raiders still in this game. Yes, just like NFL game guy makes a play there within one score. Yes. The Rams have just a better football team. So let's not as Nick say, let's not overreact to Jon Gruden in everything he's doing. All right. The beverages aren't cold in Oakland. It's going to be his fault. Everything's going to be his fault, but let's give him the things that we know that he's responsible for the overall lack of discipline with the team which you bring in Jon Gruden. Therefore they did not have that the lack of big plays or creativity. Now, Nick, I know that both the mentor people, but you're. Not thinking one day the Minty is going to outshine me not until him long over, but that's what we had there. I had a guy that was really, really creative and that's down McVeigh. And then you have the guy who supposedly taught him that. Obviously, that book must be a little old or stale because the young prodigy has added volume to that. So to me that those were the impressive things about the first fifteen plays. I thought you made a great point. They did move down the field getting the ball to cook tied in isolating the strong safety in coverage. But after those adjustments, what did they do? And they didn't make many offense of adjusts. And this is something we saw also in that bears Packers gas, where the navy had those first fifteen plays scripted brilliantly and the bears move the ball..

"Let's bring in LT to the show. It is great to have him on and by the way, you know what I'm thinking this morning when I'm driving to work and I'm seeing Jon Gruden Damian seeing Jon Gruden say, now we're going to move on and get draft picks in my takeaway is okay. Jon Gruden is sort of an emperor. Even Bella check has to answer. A craft Nick Sabin had to answer to the media Gruden now doesn't answer to anybody. He's got more power. The owner gave them a ten year contract. So even if the owner gave John crap, he'd be like Yomi one hundred million dollars. I think they've almost given Gruden too much power. That's what it feels like to me was about him. It's about him by him and you need players to win games and he's gonna find that out very quickly. And you know what happened to the days of drafting a God, developing a God to be the best guy a player in the National Football League. And then Pandey got what happened to those days. All of a sudden, you know, you switch coaches and you have no Dalal if that was the quarterback, if it was Derek Carr, Jon Gruden would have reached out to him immediately and say, new coach now come talk to me. This is your best player talking about how do you not reach out to him and say, hey, let's stop. Dala. What are the issues? How can I help you? We want you to be here for a long time. You don't even call the guy by the way the Rams with Aaron Donald were reportedly talking to his people or Aaron every day, like the Rams were like, we know it looks bad in the press, but apparently according to reports, I read this weekend. The Rams were in constant communication with Aaron, Donald. It sounds like Gruden was there was no communication, and I wonder how it plays in the locker room. Listen, I wouldn't pay every defensive player a lot of money. It's an offensive leak. I've always said for years and years. I wouldn't pay wide receivers too much money. It's a perimeter player. I like around the further you get from the football. I don't wanna pay guys, but once you get to quarterback right in the offense of line, right generally, NFL teams are looking for pass rushers. I mean Khalil Mack to me is a once in a decade guy. You'll never get another. I mean, I could say this the raiders will never have a pass rusher as talented as Khalil Mack for a decade ago made the all pro team in both positions. Like when I said effort been done or are you kidding me? And he stabilizes everything. Gonna defense, you close out games in the fourth quarter with pass rushers. We did it when my time with the chargers, even Montagne with digest. We have Pash Russia's that closed out games for us. And who else do they have? Can you? I can't answer that question. Who is the other Pash rusher Bruce Irvin Bruce Irvin. Okay. Okay. Okay. So he's gonna have to have a hell of a year. Okay. So you played with the chargers in a jet. Sam darnold was named starting quarterback for the jets and was we were talking amongst ourselves this morning, and I said this ladainian guys that have succeeded in New York. Think about this jeeter ally. Phil Simms, Aaron, judge, and I start naming Mariana. Vera? What. In a city that generates its own energy and excitement..

"We sort of always look back at the old dynasties and say, man, I wish because I think there was a piece of the world even in that era that was looking back at the polls, and it was like, oh, the bulls, the bulls, and now we look back at the Kobe shack Erin say, oh, Kobe shock, you know. And I think in ten years, we'll look back in the warriors in many ways the same. If we can always if we can all sort of forgive it Darren in Florida, what are you going. Well, I would bring back steroids the baseball 'cause guys were hitting seventy five home runs this season. It was with you, too, is I am with you all. I kinda called in to weigh in on the Gruden thing. I've just real quick. If you got a second. I would say he in twelve or fifteen years. He he spent all his time in the booth. Evaluate these teams. He does the Gruden QB camps, and he knows what all these young quarterbacks brings to the table. He knows how coaches minds work on the opposing teams for their offensive strategies. Defensive strategies I think is coaching style were remain the same, but I think he's going to bring a lot more to the table as far as overall knowledge of who plays how and playing two other teams, weaknesses and taking away their strengths Darren next to the call man. I appreciate it. And, and you know, I want to agree with that on some senses, but I'm not gonna give a guy in the booth credit for evolution when it's hard for existing. Coaches to evolve. And that's, that's gonna be an interesting piece of this because quarterbacks have changed so much spread offenses in the college ranks have changed the way things are communicated so much. And just again, communication in the last ten years has changed so much. Those are the pieces that I think are going to be the most interesting to watch. Obviously, I'm rooting for I wanted to be fantastic. I wanted to be spectacular, but we're going to start to get a sense for tonight. As we see the raiders kickoff, the Gruden era, Spain and Fitz, Spain, and Fitz on ESPN radio, the ESPN app siriusxm channel eighty. I'm Jason Fitz flying solo tonight. ESPN presented by progressive insurance in, let's face it. It's not just a hype train in Cleveland at this point after last night's preseason football game. Now it's not. It's like a hype rocket. This thing is is is blasting off. Everybody wants a piece of it. Everybody seems all in on the Brown. So we figure we'll go to somebody that's right in the thick of it. That can be a comb head to give us where I should be on this now. So we'll. Go to the shell Pennzoil performance line for Cleveland dot coms, Brown reporter, Mary Kay Cabot in America. We'll get to a Baker in a second. Obviously, you can't have you not talk about that. But first before the game even started last night, I felt like the world was following the Twitter wall of Dez Bryant at this point, what's the latest and do you think he ends up in Cleveland? Yeah, that was so funny the way that that went down, we had an opportunity to talk to John Dorsey in the press box before that game. And I asked him. He said, yeah, we're bringing some receivers next week. Nice implant blank. We'll Dez Bryant be among them. And he said, we would be if he would return any of my phone calls. And so I waited that out right away knowing that it was a little bit of a nugget there and and I wrote about it as soon as I could. And then before too long, you know, you had does responding to that because he's of course all over social media. And so it's kind of fun because at one point when when does said I will, you know, becoming to the land to see you Mr. Dorsey or whatever the exact quote was. John Dorsey was sitting right behind me. At that point, the game was going on behind me at the press box, and he said, well, my phone that Reagan yet. But the truth of the matter is is that he will come in. He has decided that he will take a look at these Cleveland, but maybe he wanted to see what they look like a little bit..
"gruden" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"What Jon Gruden is for all the conversation about a ten year contract with a guaranteed hundred million dollars. I say, guaranteed because I must remind you, coaching contracts, unlike player contracts are guaranteed. So no matter how much Jon Gruden has said, if he doesn't win, he'll just give the money back. Let's remember contractually the raiders are obligated to pay Jon Gruden a hundred million dollars. Why did they do that for a coach that hasn't been in the league for so long? Why did they do that for a coach that hasn't been part of the National Football League while he was sitting there commentating on games, which is a different thing than coaching. Why do they do it? The brand. The attention and they hope the results look. Jon Gruden. You can look back all day long and talk about who he is and what he's what he means to to football is a personality. But we have to remember Jon Gruden the coach. He's the last coach that had any sustained success for the raiders. Crazy enough. We think about Jon Gruden synonymous were the early early two, thousands raiders the the rich Gannon raiders we think about, you know, the the, the Super Bowl that he won in Tampa Bay after the raiders traded into Tampa Bay. You think about those years. Let's remember curtain was only the coach in Oakland for four years to those years. He went eight eight. So he had two winning seasons in Oakland, but he was a brand Chucky. Think about it. He was a personality. He was a reason to pay attention to the raiders when the raiders were at the peak of their relevance for an entire generation. That is what Jon Gruden represents. The hasn't coached in the NFL since two thousand and eight. So you gave a ton of money to a guy that granite in his ten years only had two losing seasons. Sorry, three losing seasons, three losing seasons in his ten years, but it didn't have such unparalleled success that you're looking at this thing. He's the second coming of Bill Belichick. So the raiders after now ask their themselves a question. How does this age? How well can you bring something back? It's difficult. I always sort of laugh when I hear the stories about couples that were divorced in other, were they got divorced, and then they found each other later got married again. Have one particular couple that I met a few years ago that they've, they've been divorced twice in their married for the third time, Saint people. I don't know why you expect a different resulting time, but you know, it works for some people. You look at it and you say, okay, we're going to reach back in the past. There better. Be something special now since Jon Gruden has taken the job, we've heard him talk about things like the fact that he doesn't really believe in advanced metrics..

You know dances well with others as you, but you at least have popped in to chat, and I knew I needed to call you up because you boy, Jon Gruden who I will say before anything ever goes down that from the beginning, you have not been a big fan of this hiring. And there've been a couple of things along the way already before he's even lead his team out on the field for the first game that have given you pause and the latest may or may not be his claim that he'll give the raiders their one hundred million dollars back if he can't quote, get it done. So let's start with what do you think get it done means? Well, not a great question because ultimately, when you're paying somebody ten million dollars a year, get it done to me means win a Super Bowl, right? I mean, that's got to be the ultimate. Prize, but I think really get it done. Probably realistically means maintains relevance but feels a a team that's constantly in the conversation because let's face it. Everything Oakland is doing right now. The raiders are doing isn't about this year. It's about the move to Vegas. So if he can, if he can send a team Vegas, it's competitive to a Super Bowl. I honestly think that that counts is getting it done, but I hate the look from a code saying that because if it's all about how a locker room sort of buys into you, how can you get a locker room to buy into that level of? Let's face it like that's that's posturing. Nobody's gonna see that as real and if they turn around and go forward, twelve, this is he gonna write a ten billion dollar check back to keep his honest as locker room feeling like he's honest. Yeah. And you know later he says, who guarantees? I'm gonna live ten years. You know, he's he. He kind of lightens it a little bit as if to say, I'm not really thinking about the length of the contract, but that that that sort of all give their money back. First of all, as age. Would never let him. Maybe he can afford, but I know his agents not going to let that happen. It just feels like first of all Soviet. We don't know what gets done means he didn't give a time line for it. This isn't Jeanie Buss in the Lakers and there's no one actually going to come out and and act on these on these promises, but it sort of fitting with the rest of his attitudes NC arrived. Right well, and isn't that surprising because let's face it, whatever we think about Jon Gruden is now is the coach. They have to understand the John Gruden. The media member is savvy and his aware of other media works. So how is it possible that a coach so aware of how it works can be so bad at at handling his message in the media? I can't wrap my head around that. Yeah. So a couple of things that have bothered you as we've been kind of paying attention to the new look raiders along the way. He's he keeps signing old dudes Dunbarton and Jordy Nelson and Derrick Johnson. He doesn't like analytics. And he is going to school with his signing of position players to to blocking tight ends in a fullback. He's kind of coaching as if he's back to the seventeen years ago when he was in Oakland and that would be my review..

"It's it's that military mentality that's something in the nfl that i know that the fans and us agree it's just it's not good not good listen to they start hissing ready listen us things so bad that i have to come up with a new sound all right back to this back to coaches versus star players oh and the second thing there in there is jonathan gert in verse marquette king jonathan gruden versus marquette king j king was let go and everyone was saying oh you know his salary dropped down and then it came out that no john didn't really like his personality i went and there's a clip online that you should check out of marquette king doing an interview this off season at the nfl network wearing a crown a robe with a staff and in it he's talking about how he's the king he's he's a personnel he's out there and they're like hey did you go and talk to gruden and he paused and he was like now they didn't they didn't invite me out there or anything like that and you could tell it was like a little weird and contentious this is clearly gruden's team and all that right you know the guy yeah what do you think about him getting rid of the punt i think he's a very good punti is a very good punter but just knowing jon gruden he doesn't want that strong of a personality at punter he just doesn't i don't think he wants to deal with it i'm sure he's heard stories maybe about him that he is a little bit of a handful whether it's tv in the locker room whatever it may be but there was something uncomfortable about them and i know that john gruden's knocking to let a punter be the focal point of any attention for his football team going forward.
