"I think that's an interesting quote. Okay so where are we john. Gruden's gone you. Don't mark davis. Of course it's resignation but mark davis asked about it yesterday. At the raiders practice said. Don't ask me as the league. Which tells me they told. Mark davis fire him. Which of course is now resignation. But jon gruden had say fifty million dollars left on that contract reports about one hundred million true. Do you think he's walking away with zero now. Of course not that. Resignation should mean that but now they said are john. You're going to go and he said fine. I know a lot of these emails Where the bodies buried and they probably said. Well we'll give you pick a number twenty million to go wet and not talk about and structured payments to make sure you don't talk about. I just think there's a lot going on here. And the fact is. I just mentioned this before. Transparency breeds trust. There's no transparency here about this. Six hundred fifty thousand emails about this issue about why we're not hearing anything about the washington team. We're hearing everything about a coach of the raiders. Who's been deposed. What what so. Transparency bridge trust. We don't have that here and the end the opposite of that breeds this kind of these comments. I get about the. Nfl owners being kind of a mafia. Like the just there's a code and they're not gonna turn on daniel snyder and they're not gonna turn on other people affected in these emails but they'll sacrifice grew coaches are expendable unless the coaches are in good graces. But this guy's not clearly and now it ruined piles on gruden. listen again. sometimes. I just feel i gotta keep saying this. What he did was repugnant. But i just think it's interesting. A lot of people are coming out piling on rudy about. Oh yeah i knew. I knew i'm like come on. Never said across word about gruden until a week ago. Now you knew he was like it. I just lose you know to me. You lose credibility with those contacts so where we are. And they'll be a drumbeat as i've been doing to sort of see more but nfl owners probably know am. I'm not sure they're right but it probably know this. There'll be some other scandal next week. I'll be something else to talk. And the games. Of course now. The monday night game got hijacked this news because of the timing. But there's always games there's always games there's tonight you know the eagles in the bucks which i'll be streaming for on twitch please come to my twitch stream andrew brandt live police do but the nfl owners know that there's always drama. I said this this week. The nfl is full of intrigue drama an interest and then there are the games. Not the games are just a front for this crazy business. Okay.

"Okay brands. rans. Jon gruden okay. Here's what i want to say about it. What people still don't know about. This is this jon. Gruden was ensnared in something that has completely no direct. Now let me say that. Again jon gruden was in snared in an investigation into a workplace. That has nothing to do. With the las vegas raiders has nothing to do with. Espn where he was employed at the time of these emails has everything to do with one of the thirty two. Nfl franchises that one being the washington football team formerly known as the reds gets there has been an investigation into the workplace of the that team. Over the past couple of years there has already been some discipline accorded to owner. Daniel snyder in the form of a ten million dollar fine. And what's come out of. It is a transfer of management of the team. Not from daniel snyder but to his wife. That's what's happened so far in the background has been this report. That is coming from attorney. Beth wilkinson that we have not seen now. The nfl is big on reports. We've seen the muller report about ray rice. We've seen the wells report about deflate gate back in the day in baseball. We had the dowd report. That ensnared pete rose in still keeps them out of baseball with this. We have been waiting for the wilkinson report. We have been waiting for something to say. This is what happened in washington instead. What we get is john. Gruden's email i from ten years ago and then a few more in the interim period between two thousand eleven believe two thousand seventeen. What happens next is jon. Gruden is fired. don't believe that he resigned. Of course he's fired. And i'll get into what goes on behind the scenes with that but i think it's interesting that the nfl owners the powerbrokers people make the rules. Run the league and still have this. I don't know what the word is. I'm getting a lot of emails in tax in tweet bax about mafia-like and i'll explain what that is but it feels like they're doing things their mareo netting this whole situation where jon gruden has become the sacrificial lamb. I have referred to that word a lot this week. Jon gruden was sacrificed for the greater. Good i don't know what that greater good is but i think we're gonna find out. I hope we're gonna find out. And i hope we have more transparency from nfl owners about what is really going on so to review last week in email comes out. That's racists in antagonistic towards nfl pa nfl players association. Head to maurice smith. The maurice smith has now overseen to collective bargaining agreement negotiations. That have and..
Jon Gruden Resigns as Raiders Coach Over Decade-Old Offensive Emails
"John Gruden has always been kind of a wild child in the NFL always been a little bit of a loose cannon, if you will. And I believe he was also he was also the coach of the Oakland Raiders in like the 90s. And then he went to the Buccaneers and led them to the Super Bowl very complicated. But then he rejoined the Raiders in 2018 after he was an analyst on Monday Night Football. Do you remember those things he used to sit down with the quarterbacks? And it was like Gruden's corner. I've never been a big fan of Jon Gruden. I'll be very honest. One in 2002, that's right, my memory's not too bad. I'm not going to be an apologist for Jon Gruden. Okay? I'm sure he lives a complicated life like most people in the NFL. But this recent saga involving in his resignation slash termination is disgusting. And the national Football Association is in many different ways. In enterprise that is built on a House of Cards. The entire structure of how many of the teams are filed as nonprofits on how almost every stadium is built thanks to taxpayer dollars. There's a lot of corruption that exists in the national football, the National Football League. And so it came out a couple days ago that John Gruden is going to be fired, or it has to speak out for his racist and homophobic emails over ten years ago. And I shrugged my shoulders and I actually didn't know where this one was going to go. Because John Gruden signed a ten year 100 million dollar deal with the Oakland Raiders. And now so he technically resigned whatever he says, I have resigned as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be distraction. Thank you to all the players coaches and staff and fan fans of raider nation. I'm sorry I never meant to hurt anyone, John Gruden. And so it was revealed in some of these emails. And based from what I've said, seen should have said something's probably not no, was he joking around in private in a context that none of us can understand? Yes. He incited Joe Biden, insulted Joe Biden I can't even say what he called Joe Biden on air. It's kind of hilarious. Called Roger Goodell, a certain name. I'm no fan of Roger Goodell. So if this whole thing is like a Roger Goodell, apology tour, but here's what really matters. Here's the question. In the National Football League, do they ever allow people to do bad things and continue to participate? Like murder. How about rate Ray Lewis and his legacy of the unsolved double murder? Or how about you remember this one? You remember ray rice, who literally punched his fiance in an elevator? It was an elevator, right? Which gained total notoriety following the indictment he was released by the ravens and suspended, and now rice would be reinstated after he successfully appealed the league's decision. And this whole thing with John Gruden is this question of should you be judged by things you have said in private ten years ago to destroy your current

"Just keep pounding on the rock until they break that rock and then they're going to be a good team. They're just they're learning how to win you know and I think it's a really tough thing for him but eventually they're going to get it right. He's the right guy and they're going to eventually win. It's just it's not going to be this year though win some games this year but next year. They're really have a chance to be a much better team. Yup yup packers bears. this was in chicago. Justin feels we'll get his first. Taste that packer bear rivalry. Yeah i think the the packers win there in put a lump on their head. I really do. I think that that's if you've ever been part of that deal. That's a big big game. That's like a playoff game rhino when he comes in there that's his element. He's in the playoffs now. Rogers and talking about and it's just. It's going to be hard unless you know. They've got a great defensive frontier of bears. That serve are saving grace right now. Chargers go onto the ravens. That'll be an interesting game game of the week to me. The charges at the ravens. That'd be fun to watch and last one. Here we think could be meaningful raiders and broncos broncos. You said they weren't real and they look like they weren't real. They'll get the raiders. And now the raiders gotta prove that they can come in with an interim head coach and go on the road against a formidable division opponent. Who needs a win. But they hit the raiders. Have got a good offense coordinator. They'll i think with i. Think the raiders win. I really do. I think with all the things that are happening with them. I think it'll be a chance. It's just kind of like a the teachers out of the classroom now. They'll go crazy camping. Yup yup and lastly bills titans in tennessee. This could be fun. Yeah they're not going to slow the bills down. you know they just. They're going to wear down the running game. I know tannehill playing really well. They're just too much. I think the bills are just too much form in the bills right now hitting their stride. You know it's you know. They stumbled all the blocks but they've gotten better. Every week in their average is now score wise but since that loss it must be averaging thirty five points a game. Yeah all right. Mike get out there and at course man always always fun. Thank you for the insight. Man fun talking. You know. you have a way of simplifying. What they've turned into a very difficult game is a simple game. Sample game bonyan's owner. Don't let them in right right all right till next week. We'll run it again. Ron pitts mike marks and our producer roy. Hamilton will see next.

"The chargers i think they they went on fourth and seven. I think fourth. And i don't know if he's mr fort down to charge. I don't know if they've missed one of those yet. But he's on that game he must have gone on fourth down four times and he made all of them. Yeah yeah. Both quarterbacks played thought played really well. Baker is so beckham is back. I we i know we covered this already but odell beckham is back and i wonder it just feels like there's a. There's a disconnect between baker and beckham and people have talked about it. yes tension. that's great way to say. Yeah there's tension From from receiver to the quarterback about giving me the ballgame in. Bogging me at all. Yeah and he's he's oneplus plus tennessee instead of one of eleven right so that whole dynamic has got worked out so he's going to have have more himself into the team and be a team player and not put that pressure on the quarterback. But you know what you're saying by the charges on defense. So here's a really well rounded football team. Cleveland really good defense. Grants special teams really. Get an offense yet. The charger with Admittedly poor run. Defense pizza So the power of a great passing game like what they have can overcome a lot of blemishes at a great point absolutely up. That's that's what that shows. That's all it could show you will all the yards. They gave up rushing gave up. The chargers gave up two hundred and thirty yards rushing. So okay. how many weeks. You're going to get away with that. And then the next question is how many times can your quarterback save you in your often save you. Well that's what that's what makes him so unique in this. I told shane. He stressed as the pressure of a the stress of like a fourth and seven. He's at his best when things are at their worst. You know what i mean. And that's so unusual. You know to have a guy embrace it. Like he doesn't just he's a machine. I have never seen anybody like him. In those in those moments you know and and make these incredible throws under duress in tough situations and it. Well well that's what i'm supposed to do. Yeah that's him now. He's fun to watch too then. The run game is adequate. It gets it done. get it done by committee. You've got Actors good and they've got a little back from ucla. What's his name. Josh kelly kelly he had some really nice crowds. He's a tough guy and handle and he's a little guy yeah and they're all. They're all like that though. Y'all are yeah. They are in they but they they drafted him and brought them in in the same mould And kelly josh. Kelly had been inactive for the last couple of weeks but all of a sudden you know he. He gets the call but down the road. How much is that going to hurt. Herbert is it gonna be too much pressure on him to throw three. You have to be able to run a little bit but without run it though in that game. I don't know what the numbers were on it. But they want one hundred twelve. Total is a good afternoon. A great passer justice but her had twenty nine of that sixty six. Kelly had attempted to have a twenty three total. It camps between three guys exer- herbert and kelly m was a quarterback and what was the quarterback production yet..

"Not there yet. But i it's just it's looking pretty good for both sides especially herber right now. I think the missing element on the rams is. They don't have bet same defensive coordinator they had last year and not that the the new one is any bad. It's just that he obviously what he's doing. The chargers a pretty special. Yep yep. you're talking about brandon staley now grand. It's the rams as the d. coordinator going the chargers unique guys talking to because i'm fascinated by him and tiny shane about him and he's just he's persistent and all the details which course. That's what we always embraced right all the little details and you know making sure everything's covered that you have an answer for everything and and he just lets guys coach and shane and i know that sounds silly. But so many other places look shoulder and question what you're doing. Why you're doing it right and mash shane. Men did that with him and It's refreshing for him to be in a situation where you can go. Because he's he's very capable is an excellent football coach right. So staley's air. With the chargers raheem morris longtime assistant coach. Barry good coach. He is a new d. See what the rams so you know. There's some there's gotta be like you said there's gotta be a change in an adjustment period. Some i don't. I don't think you can just bounce from one coordinated with new coordinator in everything operates the same. I don't think so so lovey was coordinated for me. Love is me on the chicago when i replaced him with. Larry maher may who is a very much head coach and longtime coordinator league and just that outstanding coach and he came in and hard to change was very very hard because they were so attached to love. And i think it's the same thing In la know. I i really do. I think it's the same thing that the attachment and he he did things differently. He's very creative with those guys and he he got guys in defense in a position to make plays in. This is just running the defense. And that's a big deal. That makes him too little unique in league. So if brennan's daily is so good as a defensive. Mind mike than what is wrong. The chargers run defense. They are at the bottom of the league in terms of stopping the rush. And now nick jobs and kareem hunt. They run on. Everybody in sunday was no obscenity. Yeah yeah one hundred sixty yards for chub and sixty one for kareem hunt who last week was also the team's leading receiver. If you can believe that so tell me now..

"Fact of the raiders. Back field on wednesday to start practicing preparation for what. It's a very big game in denver against the broncos the nfl as as mad as the league is over. What happened in john gruden's in particular other not going to hold up the train. Just on the raiders. Pliers can wrap their head around what just happened to their head. Coach wanted changes for them as they try to go about winning a bunch of a bug games. That's not gonna happen so they gotta get it together as quickly as possible and In in that regard can kind of feel for those guys a little bit. There must be a billion thoughts that are going through guises heads right now as they as they sit and dwell on this thinking about getting back to work on wednesday on top of that they gotta then set it all aside to try to win a football game. It's not the easiest thing in the world to do in a very curious to see. How the raiders. React to it. I fell sunday in the lost. The chicago bears. I thought that there was something that was there. There was out there. i didn't. I've never seen guys dropped balls. They dropped against the chicago bears on on on sunday. I've obviously the raiders have been known to be heavily penalized team but it went way. Overboard with the penalties with guys are running into each other at times. I felt like the resistant. jerry west. One time told me this at this level at the professional level the highest level. Possible whether you're talking about basketball. Nfl even if you could be off. A percentage point of a percentage point of a percentage point of a percentage point mentally in focused lies at this level. And you will get your hats handed to you because those other guys aren't that good and the raiders. They didn't get their hats headed but it was obvious that there was something going on at least in my for my perspective. I mean it was the worst game. They played all year. I'll be by a bio by a country mile and it makes sense. I mean like you know it knows that whenever ford the for the wall street journal op broke the story about the initial the racist comments about the war smith get it. Yeah i mean right. that's it's jarring. It's jarring to learn about your head coach using this kind of language about your head coach. Somebody the leader of your franchise in a lotta ways. You know who tells these guys he loves is is trying to rally what you find out that he actually talks a different way behind with like could al-qaeda distraction but he how could it not like you said now we're at this point where this is unprecedented like i cannot remember a story quite like this in the nfl very at least following the nfl. Wetherby a fantas- journalists is an unprecedented situation that these players are not going to have to deal with a lot of ways on israel for right as certainly this week. Who knows what's going to happen. What we forward at what kind of trajectory the season takes off. But it's a man. Has a huge distraction. Had to be going into the game. And now i can't imagine i cannot imagine Just like if no ninety six hours. This was not an issue and now the these emails mercy's reports emerging. You have a totally different viewpoint. You know allow these guys. I'm sure on somebody they trusted really cared about. It's it's i mean there's a there's a professional component to this. There's obviously a much stronger. Personal voted off to the discuss. Clearly these were. John gruden personal feelings in a lot of ways so Like you said the season continues and it now with this football team is going to have its character tested as a. I can't remember how the team having having expected. Tested on mytalk following. And i've been texting with a With the raiders player at day. And honestly you know the the the the his reaction is trying to figure out what's going on in the locker. Mouser ruin villain. What's the what's the tone And you know it's it's literally Early towel. i don't know you know really that that tells you where this really is for for them. Now granted you know mondays guys by the time. This hit The other raiders have gone through their monday. You know Their usual monday the day after game. You guys get in. They get lifted. They get treatment But then it's a see you on wednesday so the only thing anyone anyone's really been doing Since then is texting to each other. But it's not gonna be really honestly. I don't believe until guys are able to look each other in the. I truly Fifty-three meant strong in that locker. Room to kinda a good feel of where it is and even at that point. You don't really know But i i can imagine You know i. I would think if this was if i was on. This team is part of the leadership. Council guys like You know. Derek carr and you know all the other the captains of this team in the leadership Part of the st max. Crosby alec ingold guys like that. I would probably. It's probably worth again hour or so At some point when they do get back to work to just sit down and talk things. That talk about the exhibit. Let everyone be able to express themselves out at what they're thinking. What they're feeling whether it's about jon gruden whether it's about moving forward Y'all because because in a way Sam trust was betrayed. Yeah you know. Jon gruden pretended to be portended. I should say you know one way one in reality maybe was a different way. You know what i'm saying in when that kinda realities In the face a win it especially when it comes to somebody that that you know well in that respect if your player you know that your leader It's difficult sometimes process hurtful on a. I mean a number of levels right like betrayed. Trust at any point when you have when you really trust somebody in count on somebody for leadership. There's devastating component to that regardless. What circumstances are when you read the contents of what these emails are about. Bidding in the kind of language used The comments that were made. Yeah i mean. I just i just upside down world as a player i mean i can't i can't imagine i can't even i cannot even imagine What would these guys are feeling in. I hope we we hear some. We're gonna hear from some players of course throughout the course of the week and just like you said really curious to see what the reactions are. What they what they tell us. You know publicly in four serious about how everything is going to be handled behind closed doors but yeah. The trust component gone completely fractured betrayal at me. There's a number of emotions i imagine. A lot of these players are feeling at this point in time and not you said not a lotta time to to really deal with that because there is still has a job to do these guys football players and the season continuous. So yeah a lot suggest in very over little amount of time. You can't like don't wanna you don't wanna be death. A very surreal components of this. Because again raiders were one of the main stories in the nfl In a really positive way nine days ago. Bathroom after rio started You know this is another disaster in a franchise that you know for the last twenty years. Applied by disastrous. Finally when you straighten out the person that many thought were responsible for leading. That wasn't what you thought. He was at also disappointment. Is is an understatement. I'm sure for players. We'll see how holly deal with other process at real time. It's it's i mean. It's devastating is number story in the country right now and it's it's devastating devastating component of this again. Just nothing acceptable about embiid any Personal election Back in the day. I was covering was a columnist Los angeles Starring mick libbers In the playoffs against golden state warriors. And i'll never forget this. The clippers win game three to go to one on the golden state warriors and So we're up in oakland I'm at the old mariot You know ready to disclose leap basically on friday night.

I'm i'm sure of that. I'm very positive of that We'll talk about other things that transpire from this after this Again players that follow up you know and talk about it coaches the nfl Anything that there is to continue following this will we will do that. if you're looking strictly for the raiders side of it the follow for that. I have a podcast call. What happens in vegas. you could follow their But on here on clock daughters. I'll also be doing you know whatever updates. I can with the investigation if more people get Aired out that. We're doing these racist things. These homophobic things Let it be a constant reminder. Everybody if you have written something in your past on social media on emails on anything it doesn't matter if it's ten years ago or not you'll be held accountable in twenty twenty one and moving forward. You will not get to use an excuse like it was ten years ago. it was. But you're what you're gonna pay for it now. That's just the facts. It's just the facts and your best step is to apologize fully. Not just some words like put your apology into action certainly telling people you don't wanna talk about it. It's not an apology. That's not the way to proceed at funny enough. You'll be talking about it the rest of your life. jon gruden. You will answer to this. You will speak on this. You will be asked about this. People will be axed about you about these comments about these emails for the rest of your life so whether you feel like you don't wanna talk about it or not it will be spoken about and you will always be axed about it and whenever people see you they will see that you are your action.

"jon gruden" Discussed on Clock Dodgers Podcast - Motivation | Fantasy Football | Comedy | Pop Culture
"About john again. So we'll see how you know their responses change after this. Let's not forget. These guys are actively employed by the raiders. They may not want to speak out there in the league. They may not want to get you know we've seen backlash on some players when they speak out as it's ugly it's not good. It's not fair But they may be concerned about that. You know they may be Not as vocal and some of these guys. You know maybe. Just don't feel the need to discuss it right now. But maybe they will in the off season or maybe. They will after their careers. We've seen a lot of guys who played in a league previously. They're the ones being the most outspoken currently We're not hearing a lot of guys in the nfl. Speak but to be fair. It hasn't just this all happened. So quickly So maybe we'll get more comments from players on the raiders And more across the league We'll we'll see as it transpires and we'll update as it transpires But you know we'll see. We'll see how they respond. Is you know everyone's allowed to have their own opinion. Of course I guess we'll wrap this conversation with the fact that jon gruden should have been fired or resigned. I agree with that jon. Gruden should be held accountable for what he said should apologize for what he said. It should not tell us when the conversation ends Jon gruden won't wasn't the first and won't be the last in life in sports in the nfl in this investigation. That had these issues. Let's be honest and you know just knowing what the climate is like in the world period. I'd assume that there's some level of this happening in probably not in email form because people are are smarter now and even if they're racist or homophobic they may not just put it in writing they might not share it But we know they're out there right These just exist. It is what it is right. We can't be can't get rid of him as much as we try to teach and educate and you know better people. They're still going to be people. Think in such a limited capacity Or as such a hateful capacity And we'll we'll we'll see how this goes forward again. I'm not here to say that every time. Someone makes a mistake while when their mistake is you know dug up from the past. They should be destroyed and never heard from again. But you are going to be held accountable. You are going to apologize and you will likely lose your current employment and it will likely be difficult for you to find employment in the future We we we've seen it work though for certain guys. I mean we have seen people come back from these things and you should be allowed to redeem yourself. just know that people who want supported you and didn't know you were this kind of character i will not support you before and more than likely Because there's some people who i mean. No one has to forgive. You know one has to accept. You know one has to do anything so you know he'll have his supporters have people who don't have people who forgive you could feel however you wanna feel towards jon gruden but just understand too that this is a bigger issue that more and more information will follow and should follow than just jon gruden and then more people do things like this than they should. When i get mad. I don't get racist when i get mad..
"A perfect life has everything they've ever done. They've been only proud of. We've all been you know. Done things had poor judgment and and have done things that we weren't you know the proudest of however making racist comments. I can't say we've all been there my man. That's that's definitely unique to a select group of people making homophobic comments again. Unique to assessing certain people as some people may say. Oh well you know as locker room talk is how people talk with their friends when when people talk like that when people try to use that. Excuse number one. It's an excuse and still you still did it. But he he's using this in this email as a negative context. He's not he's he's putting in right in in a negative context. It's not like you. You used a word that is now found upon and you use the back in a different context. He's using it in a hateful manner. He's not just using the word he's using these words hatefully with anger. So that that's the part where becomes even more racist or homophobic or whatever it is when you when you're slinging these words around in a negative connotation towards people it's it's meant to hurt meant to inflict you know pain or anger or whatever you're trying to do to somebody so we're not gonna play that game where you know. It doesn't matter or It was so long ago. And this and that you're going to be held accountable for it. You're going to apologize for it. I'm not. I've been on record with this in the past. I'm not you know this word. I guess us around cancelled culture and that kind of stuff. I'm not a fan of it. People do make mistakes. People's lives shouldn't be ruined for the mistakes. However you're any job and you lose your job because of it. That's that's how this works is not cancelled culture. That jon gruden lost his job. That's not cancel culture. That's him being held accountable for what he did. That's how life works. You say something. do you fired. Will he ever get another chance again. Who knows who knows. We'll we'll we'll see how he responds. We'll see how he tries to you. Know move forward. We'll see how others feel about it. We'll see if anything else comes out to the light but he's not cancelled for life. He's not you know he. He lost his job. That's what happens when you do things wrong when you do something bad. That's just kinda normal..
The Daily Wire's Matt Walsh Discusses the Firing of Football Coach Jon Gruden
"Matt Walsh from the daily wire Welcome back to the show Thanks for taking the time with us today We appreciate it Hey Dan thanks for having me Yeah you got it So Matt this situation with Jon Gruden the Las Vegas Raiders coach You know is this the new standard You're one of the best commentators out there on the ongoing culture war against us which we didn't ask for by the way I mean is this the new standard you send an email ten years ago with some crappy language in it I mean really if all of us had our emails from the last ten years disclosed publicly I mean we'd all be fired and part two of the question if I may You know they have a M and M Matt performing at the halftime of the Super Bowl show What do you think his emails Yeah Eminem we don't have to look at his emails and we just look at the lyrics that a song these performed for the public and millions of dollars and same for Dr. Dre snoop dog they're all performing And they're going to perform some of those very songs where they use the language that John Gruden just got fired for using And that's why I agree with you I mean look any of the people who are pretending to be offended by John Green's email I would encourage any of them I challenge any of them to just publish their Gmail password and let us comb through it We'll keep it in your loan go back farther than that I promise But let us look through ten years of messages and give us your text messages to have you never in ten years said one message send one message with a content Of course that's not the case And that's why we have to understand what's happening here with Jon Gruden This is prosecuting by mob tribunal a thought crime This is the problem is the thought that he express it's almost no different Like if the canceled mom I've had the ability the technology to actually literally read your mind They would eagerly do it and they would cancel you for things you haven't even said out loud There's only one step removed from that and canceling someone for a private email sent from their private email account to a friend who was not offended by it I mean it's the definition of a victimless
"Obviously this is some sort of big lip reference Which we all know has been used in the past In history and everything. And i guess racist folks to describe Black people and so he uses this insole just racist insult in an email to. I'm not sure who. I don't know if it was says it was to an executive with the washington football team and so You have this e mail come out and this already in itself is bad is bad. People aren't sure at this time when this comes out whether it's jon gruden and be fired is you know. Is he going to be suspended. Is he going to be fine. What's going to happen here. Clearly this is a racist comment. Now what happens is people like to go. It is ten years ago man. Come on it was fifteen years ago. Five years ago. Jon gruden is sixty years old. Basically just about he's not sixty yet but he's just about to be there ten years ago he was about still pretty damn old. You feel me forty eight as old. I'll care if you said twenty years ago when he was thirty eight. It's not okay. No matter what age he is or how long ago to not be held accountable for the words that he used okay. So we're gonna hold you accountable. No matter how long ago it was right. I hope we all understand that hope. That's not something that is You know not fully agreed upon. You're going to apologize for using it. You're gonna say you changed. Which is hard for many of us to believe because as we know generally speaking people do not change especially when you're thirty eight years old forty eight years old fifty eight years old. It doesn't really happen that way. You may change the flavor of ice cream you like. You may change Whether you like a certain artists are not some sort of music you may get into a new type of music. You don't change who you are at the core you don't change from racist to not racists. You don't change from homophobic. Too not homophobic. These aren't really changes people. Make your if you're that thing you're already that thing and there's not really a change that's gonna come about at forty eight years old or fifty eight years old to make you not that thing anymore. That's just who you are at your core right now. Some people say well you know everyone says we all said should that wasn't right we've also shit that were not proud of We've all done things. We're not proud of not a single soul listening to this podcast. Talking about the nfl watching the nfo live in anywhere has been has had a perfect past..

"Prepare a segment about Jon Gruden and I started crying actually. Out of stress and anger and I just like a smattering emotions and I thought maybe if I sit down and talk through them, it would help. The big story today is that raiders head coach Jon Gruden resigned. A bunch of emails leaked of him saying horrible, horrible stuff. Misogynistic, racist, homophobic things, and you know, I look around at my life and I think of my friend Marcel, who such a wonderful human being. And I think of my fiance. I think of my friend Arthur, whose husband Brian is fantastic. And those are all people in groups that John Gruden's comments like attack and say, I don't know. I wonder like, did I not know the real John Gruden? Now here's a statement John Gruden released. He said, I have resigned as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders.

"jon gruden" Discussed on The Lead
"So from the outside jon. Gruden can seem almost cartoonish at times. We've seen him putting on quite the show and hard knocks for example. Everybody right now has dreams. Don't take guys right everybody. Nfl dream of making any nfl. I got a dream of winning the bowl. I got a dream of being in a pro. I'm really not into dreams anymore okay. I'm into nightmares. You gotta end some that. Vicky cover the seam up close. What did the players say. Gruden is like behind closed doors. The things we're optimistic is always looking ahead kind of pump them up a little bit. He's very funny so uses that both the to kind of courage him and also to kind of knock him down to peggy. Who wants to get bigger point across. The energy is off the charts. He's like here early the morning. He's nonstop he wants to as you. I was players. They kind of feed off of that and and time during waller. I thought i had a good point. Because you're the giants a huge playbook bushes these guys and different ways and they responded waller definitely you can see. He's one of the best players in the league now and yet he has gotten better every year under john. He's definitely credits. John lott with his progress. What has car had to say about his relationship with his head coach or you long says they semi two texts all day and they like show pictures of their dogs and the kids and it's been cool by which i think is probably partly true should take both a little bit. I think you know. John can be tough at times and john's even said that dirksen good job of like dealing with his craziness like john. Netflix emits he's kind of maniacal times can kind of fly off the handle on a huge emotional ranges. I think it's a good job of learning how to deal with that. And not take things personally and just kind of realize you're working towards the same goal so either good well as we've discussed jon gruden hasn't actually one. That many games has the raiders head coach this time around and for a franchise with the motto. Just win baby. That would put his job under threat but vic as he wrote gruden is not on the hot seat yet because of that ten year contract he signed back in two thousand eighteen so with all that in mind do you think gruden's feeling real pressure to put up someone's this season or does he feel like he's still got time to build this team into a contender recuse. Time is not as you're getting fired anytime soon. I could see at some point him just like you know what it's not worth i'm miserable. I'm putting all his energy into it. I'm not having fun. Like i thought it would. And so i could see him walking away and a couple of years. They can't get over the hump. But i don't think he's danger again fired. I mentioned mark davis. When he gave him the highland. He said it was the happiest day of his life so he gave. He gave a guy. You know harmless dollars. And he's like happy. Which tells you how much you love. Jon gruden your win. A sony has the pay much every year last year. Was coordinator paul. The mike joe mic. Mac might be on the hot seat or even. Even derek falter the playoffs. They could extensions the fall guy like john. John will be here at least a year to match. Thank you so much vicar. Taking the time to speak with us.

"jon gruden" Discussed on The Lead
"Kind of like a club. Vibe is actually on the field. Would you always kind of guest appearances like ice cube in too short halftime concert. Random deejays popping up little. John doing stuff like between plays and it was just a really vagrancy and definitely the issue is very high. Did any of the black hole vibes from oakland. Come out matt really. I think there are still a black hole. Is kind of on the other end from the nightclubs. So maybe you if you say if there's one eight and i'd be looking at the black hole. I was stages. There were cuban shore. So it's definitely different viable. I think the france still get very loud. So in the raiders. Play the fans get really loud. But when raymond's made a big play you definitely hear those fans lot more than you heard opposing team fans and oakland. There's so much louder presence for the other team which makes sense because the fans are vegas also kind of have the big three day weekend so definitely one if you're gonna notice about the crowd and the noise definitely well. The game itself certainly provided a lot of entertainment for those watching. I mean early on it. Looked like lamar jackson in the ravens. Were in complete control. Jacksonville hall zone touchdown. Hollywood hits las vegas but then the raiders mounted multiple leak comebacks to force the game into overtime respectively touchdown. Infant things somehow. Got even more chaotic. Can you take us through what happened in that overtime period who's nuts. And the thing about raiders. Games like Historically whenever things can go wrong they will go along long after they won the game the first time game players on the field shaking hands and the crowds going nuts definitely will wait in weird way like do they really win when we take a look at the left knee the ball is going to be short of the goal line as right needs down there while as close of course. Where's the disney and then while they're the one yard line that they're going to score obviously in the win but again if ready stream is never that easy off the fingertips at intercepting went off of really speeds hands. And abraham intercepts at the end zone like here we go again. This is unbelievable. His team always doesn't themselves but This time of defense actually made some place or call massacre strip sack. Got the ball back. James drake picked up the pressure jones and he will branch into the end zone for the touchdown and the victory in overtime for the raiders. And this celebration is for real so definitely a different twist different ending for this new. Vegas raters i well. The we wanted to talk to you about how. This raiders team has evolved or at least changed since jon gruden signed his big ten year. One hundred million dollar contract back in two thousand eighteen. So can you remind us what the situation with. The raiders was like when gruden came on board during a word spot because they had made the plas twenty sixteen. Though the first time in a long time so definitely young players derek carr phil mac kind of building the right way and people really at high hopes than twice the kind of fell off a little bit injector getting fired in part because mark davis and according jon gruden for years it took me six years of chasing john and it is the biggest day of my life right now to have him here to run this organization and be the leader of this organization on the field is going to be phenomenal so i was like his dream coach. Please come back. I love you my dash industry. Do i love you plan so blank check and so finally decide. Yeah yeah kinda missed all back in. Obviously this is very emotional for me. I never wanted to leave the raiders. I never thought i'd be back. But here i am and i'm ready to get the work and so when john came on okay two choices. Okay try and do a quick fix gives gives back to where we were in two thousand sixteen with some talent here see if that works or do a toll. Tear down to total rebuild. Their make build a team the way i want to be my ideas and so once khalil. Mack held out and the contract talks kind of really ever get going seriously. I think you know as you know. I'm gonna trade the sky and for two first round picks and can really get going on this big rebuild. And that's where we are now the rebuild. So i think you want to come back here. Do it his way and win in oakland slash. Las vegas well after tearing it all down gruden had to as you put it quote bake his own cake and you read that. He has basically followed three recipes so far. So tell us about that. First recipe shaping. The team around former all pro whiteout antonio brown told me a brown one month. Whatever he was with the raiders is probably the longest month of my time. Doing this job just the all the stuff that happened like you know. He burned his feet in asana. He came flying in a hot air balloon. The first day of practice i. It's the best one i hear. I thought it'd be citing the switch it up. Napa valley obviously is known for high evans. Just chemists have been mixed the practice then. He had like a helmet issue like he couldn't get the right helmet. He likes going to sue the league about wearing a helmet even didn't have his safety specs. Helmet no helmet. What's wrong with you. Being on the field went around. What's wrong would be an unofficial creating chemistry with derek. What's wrong with you being around your teammates set your arguably the face this franchise and you're your leader. What's wrong with doing that. Somehow someway he uses all the wrong foot and it was really disastrous month for that organization because they had traded form. Jon gruden kind of wrote his whole playbook around him like you wanted to say this is going to be the guy and the next level that was kind of a big plan and then all of a sudden you have to cut them. And that was one where john was really excited about antonio brown and just you know a month and a half of nonstop lunacy and finally. He's like i can't. I can't do this. We did everything we could to make this work and you know i. I'm sorry. I didn't. I apologize but i will tell you. I'm very proud of what we did as an organization to try. And i wish antonio nothing but the and i'm sorry that we never got a chance to see him silver and black. Very disappointing Well moving onto recipe number two. It seems like plan centered on building a very expensive ovens of line. Can you remind us how that unfolded that was. Also john's to be one of his big plans. Coming in with secular win was a big expensive veteran line. Like you ready. Husni said was fair. Players of all time trim brownie called him one point. The lebron james or right tackles gave jackson's of a very proven guards. Those are three guys. Pay a lot of money to and had some success on this league. It's an experience. But trent brown can stay healthy and some weight problems last year. I think gee wait for her pounds. Show a camp. So that's not great. So i think at some point john realize it's not it's just working this plan paying all this money. These guys are missing games or not dominating the run game pass blocking so. Let's go a different way. No las vegas. Raiders have traded right tackle trent brown to the new england patriots since signing has four years. Sixty six million dollar deal back at twenty eighteen. Trent brown has done absolutely nothing to prove to raider nation to prove the literally anybody that he wanted to be an oakland or in las vegas. Lazy uncommitted.
Louis Riddick on Raiders-Ravens Game
"I'm gonna get into this interview. I had with louis riddick. We've talked about all angles of the monday night. Football game against the baltimore ravens. So let's get that going right now you so much for joining me today. Really appreciate the time. We've got a huge game coming up. Here raiders ravens. Big monday night. Football game percival. How excited are you to call this one as a former raider all every raider game is big for me. You know i don't really hide. I don't really hide from it. I kind of run towards the fact that. I've got such a special place in my heart for the raiders that's where my first arbour's board etc. I won't bore you with that. We're not all say is this though To get back out here after last year being out there in column buttons that week two against the saints at no fans to go back out here opening weekend against against the ravens one of the most exciting teams in the nfl for vegas start off their year playing them on monday night with fans opening weekend we saw one opening weekend was like for college. Football at you think is going to be for the nfl. Everything's gonna be vegas. I mean it's one it's vegas to. It's the raiders will most emotional fan bases in the nfl and for us on monday night. Football yeah that doesn't get any bigger than that. I'm sure you'll hear. My voice will be pretty quick pretty loud pretty fast. It's going to be have to calm myself down. But yeah i can't wait. I can't wait to hit the ground running for sure as somebody that has been coached under. Jon gruden how much do you feel like. A lot of people have talked about this test that he needs to pass this year by as far as getting through the playoffs and all of that are to the playoffs. Excuse me when you put that into perspective. Like how much is the focus on. What comes out of gruden this year when you start with game. One here the ravens. I think i think it's a. It's a big big factor. I think it's justified that there's a lot of attention being paid to the improvement that this team needs to
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

"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.

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
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
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
Raiders and Jon Gruden Are Fined Again Over Virus Violations

Gruden praised the team's handling of the issue. Despite repeated
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.
