Deshaun Watson endorses Houston Texans' potential Antonio Brown pursuit, even if the franchise hasn't shown interest

"Brown now, so there was some videos of him working out with Russell Wilson earlier this offseason. We've seen Antonio Brown working out with Lamar Jackson. Now to the Texans, maybe have some interest. We know their quarterback DeShaun Watson looks interested. Shawn Watson responded to a tweet from former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson. And what Shad Johnson tweeted a B to the Texans would like a prayer. Emoji link, I guess praying it happens. And this John Watson's tweet was basically a Mame of you know, Drake looking like, Really, I'm intrigued. I got intrigued type of look. Here's the reality. But the Texan sign Antonio Brown, then shame on Bill O'Brien. You cannot justify signing a bee in the same off season that you shipped away DeAndre Hopkins for nothing for David Johnson's contract in a second round pick, You cannot trade away the game's best wide receiver and then bring in a guy like Antonio Brown. Who is a locker room cancer. You can't do it. You can't justify it. Let's ignore the off the field stuff with a B and the suspension that's likely coming to the guy. Let's just talk about what he did the last year and 1/2. From alienating himself in Pittsburgh and missing a winner Go home Week 17 game. You then going to the Raiders and hurting himself by freezing his foot off. So then having an issue with the NFL helmet rule. To getting into with Mike. May I threatening to punch the guy? You secretly recording Jon Gruden. And then releasing a video after the Raiders finally released him and maybe be like I'm free. I'm free as it playing for the Raiders, making $15 million was, you know being kept in, you know. Unlivable conditions that Antonio Brown was in such a terrible life situation. He's finally free. That's what you get on the field, or, I guess technically off the field with the Raiders last year. We all know about the alleged crimes, and this guy has committed the lawsuit she's dealing with, so he's facing a suspension and you're the Texans and you're going to sign Antonio Brown Anthea traded away, arguably the game's best wide receiver. Who has never been and off the field malcontent who has always done the right thing in the Houston community, You can't sell Texans fans on Antonio Brown. If you traded away, DeAndre Hopkins, you just can't do it. Why would you trade away Hopkins to take a chance on Abie, who's facing a suspension? And we all know at some point Something's going to go wrong because it always goes wrong. For Antonio Brown. I mean, you cannot At any under any circumstance signed this guy. When everything we've heard from Bill O'Brien is he wants character guys, Bill O'Brien's cliche lines in every press conference. I've been out with him smart, dependable, reliable, tough football players. That's what we want. Antonio Brown is the opposite of every trade Bill O'Brien says he wants to be the biggest hypocrite. GM Bill O'Brien signs Antonio Brown. You can't do it. You just can't I don't care. Baby wants to play for nothing that sends the wrong message to the entire locker room. You traded DeAndre Hopkins. You gotta live with that. You deal with brains and cooks. You have will fuller Let's go figure it out. Yeah. Kenny Stills, Kiki cuties motivated to come back and play well in his third season. You made your bed now you gotta lie in it. Bring in Antonio Brown when there's going to be a condensed training camp. You think this guy's gonna follow social distancing guidelines? No shot Antonio Brown. We had every strip club in Houston by week three. It's called for what it is. He's the last guy the Texans need right now. That's the type of signing that alienated the entire locker room.

NFL: Two head coaching hires in 10 minutes

"The draft before the combine. We still have several weeks. NFL Action to go. We have some new coaches join. Join the NFL. As recently as this afternoon and joining me to talk about that and the playoff games is our friend with the Atlantic Lindsay Jones Lindsay. How are you? I'm good oh how are you. I'm good I thought this was going to be kind of a quiet day in the NFL landscape and then suddenly to head. Coaching hires in the matter of ten minutes. This morning Matt rule going to the panthers. Joe Judge going to the giants after Mike McCarthy was named cowboys coach earlier this week. So let's start with today's news. Let's start with Matt rule who gets a seven year deal. What sixty seventy million dollars? A lot of money. Samat rule to leave Baylor and come work for the Carolina Panthers. Yeah I mean it sounded like one of those Offers you can't refuse type of situation where I think he's GonNa have a lot of power he's also got a lot of money and A lot of years to do To do what the panthers to do. It's not quite a Jon. GRUDEN ten years one hundred million dollar type of deal but David Tepper is showing that he is not afraid to spend a lot of money to invest very heavily in his head coach and head coach You know when everything else that they're doing I mean they're building a brand new practice facility. They're building the indoor facility. I mean they're spending a lot of money Darren Charlotte and you know I. It was interesting that there was kind of story that also came out. The rule wanted to kind of bring that offer back to the giants Because he was going to interview with the giants as well but The giants said okay. We're going to hire JOE judge instead of paying Instead of hiring not rule it six years seventy million dollars or whatever it is so Really really interesting. Move there Bell what are you. What was your initial? Take on it. I guess and then I'll I'll go with yours it. I think it's interesting in that. I'm not gonNA pretend that I am someone who has watched every Baylor game this year. I've watched a little bit and I've read up a Matt Rule Essay coaching candidate. Now for the past two years of course rule was very very nearly the jets head coach last year before jazz blocked him hiring his own offensive coordinator which point he stepped out of that process and they hired Adam Gates move. That has worked out brilliantly for the jets of course in the afterward with that rule. I think there are certainly elements of a a run first attack. I think he is not someone who is seen as a a progressive offensive minded. They've run EARNHARDT Peos this year. He has seen that as sort of a you know. I can't deal with the devil to run as much of the rushing game as he wants to and I think that's very interesting given what we have. In Carolina we have Christian McCaffrey who's entrenched is the best running back in football at the moment. We Have Cam Newton who I think you know certainly seems like this offer. This higher would probably be good for him in a way back for him in a way. Oh you know good in that. The run first attack does seem to favor can if he can be a player who does impact game with his leg. Still which we don't know coming back from injury but it's pretty clear that you know if Matt rule wants to move on from Cam Newton. He's going to have plenty of time to move on and higher higher or or or or sign up backup quarterback or assigned a young quarterback or draft a quarterback and give that guy a time to develop so I kind of feel of two minds. It's for this when it comes to the biggest decision for the second the second biggest decision the panthers have to make this office and I don't know how you feel about do you do. What does this mean for you for Cam Newton? Yeah I I think the first thing is just how healthy is he gonNA be. What's his time? Line going to be like their That's the thing that just is over everything and has been over everything for the panthers for going on two years now I still think he's GonNa be back and and I've been I've been thinking about this a lot over the last few few days I've been writing about brees and Brady and thinking about all of the potential quarterback moves that we're gonNA see the offseason and well this time of year. It's really fun fun to speculate about. All the potential moves and this year is more interesting than any quarterback off season that I can remember and maybe ever certainly certainly as long as my nfl institutional memory is But ultimately moving on from a quarterback and guy who's taking you to a super bowl who's won an MVP Without some sort of really solid plan in place is it's a really hard at it. It's so rare that it happens so ultimately I think he ends up being back. I think he's there's so many things that you can do with him if he's going to be healthy but that if he's going to be healthy is just the biggest question that's been out there and We're not going to know that for a couple abundance I guess the good news is that they don't have to make that move or decision on Cam Newton. Today I mean they they really can can wait a couple of months but ultimately. I think that there are better team with him. And the options outside of him are just not that great. I mean. There's some intriguing names out there but I just think I don't think you're GonNa do better than Cam. Newton Can A new. There's even seventy five percent of the quarterback that he was in two thousand fifteen when he was at his peak. Yeah or even the guy who was playing well in the first half of two thousand eighteen. I think that can traffic is still really good There's a definitely interesting sort of dichotomy with that rule or I guess not a paradox. In that he is a very conservative. Very first coach. But we've we've seen in the report effortless. Hire one of the reasons that the panthers were able to Land Matt run into the panthers was because they're making a huge investment in sports science. You mentioned the practice facility being built there. I mean it seems like it's a you know. This is the the beginning of a major infrastructure shift for the panthers to being an organization that they wanNA emulate the steelers and they wanna be simultaneously Eh analytics friendly at the same time so I think it was going to be a really interesting sort of narrow path to hit their where they are a run for his team which is typically considered to be sort of a antiquated or old school notion but making it work and so I think in the long run. They might end up being more similar to the Ravens. Who seemed to embody all those things right now in the steelers? Yeah I mean that's absolutely the franchise right now that you want to emulate if you look at WHO's doing it the best right now from both play on the field but also what they're doing inside their building and the the mindset that they have with the type of people that they hire The way that they make all their decision I think it's the Ravens and I guess that comes from the steelers family and that's so so that's what he's familiar with. But I think the other thing that we we didn't talk about was not rule that we just really have to mention. Is that while we can talk about schematics. And look at his Ex's knows and yes he's run I but you know what college offenses he bringing those sorts of things. I think the biggest reason that he was this really hot. NFL Coaching candidate over the last two years. This is his reputation. That's kind of a program builder and The work that he did at temple the way that he really kind of overhauled Baylor over the last two the three years when they were really a disaster The the way he interacts with players You know he brought his father and his former pastor and coach and you know I just think that Dad's what made him so attractive in addition to obviously like the the the skills that he has. It's an actual you know coach but You know I think we get so caught happen. Like what exactly is this. Guy's offense going to look like or what exactly is this guy's defense gonNa look like when really what owners and management are looking at is. What's this Guy's vision? How is he going to interact after everything everybody in the building? How does he relate to players What is his vision? All those sorts of things not really why they came out rule You know a bunkers you you know seventy million dollar contract Jack. Think that's very fair and I think that's really what they're bringing matt rule to do. I mean this is a guy who they think is going to overhaul everything about the panthers. The culture is going to change not that rhinovirus culture was bad. Obviously it worked for a long time but I think you know this is going to be a eighteen. An organization top to bottom built in in the vision of Matt Rule on the other side of things You think about the hiring. The giants made today in Joe Judge who granted. I think there's been that those sort of initial tweets coming out the wide receivers coach. He's really special teams coach. He is not good for one year. He has been the Patriot special teams coach for a long time. He has worked under Bill Bell. Check US worked under Nick Sabin. Those are pretty successful people to work underneath and yet it sort of seems like not. Maybe this is wrong to say but it seems like this higher is out of nowhere. Is that fair to say a little bit. I mean he was.

Jalen Ramsey Active, Will Start for Jaguars vs. Titans After Requesting Trade

"Moving onto jalen Ramsey he wants out of Jacksonville unfortunately for him he will be playing against the dines tonight for Jacksonville in Jacksonville the Jags all pro cornerback has requested a trade but we'll be active again with the trade seemingly coming sometime after the game so C. C. which contender should try to acquire Jalen Ramsey. I don't mean I it doesn't have to be a contender tender for me right now. We only played two games. Everyone's a contender the giants I think we make a quarterback's which we right back into this but I think there are certain places that would be better perform. I think the raiders Jon Gruden got the CAP space. They got a really young teen. They could use the corner play. They could also use a star going to Las Vegas the Tennessee Titans. I do believe coach coons. He was a legendary highschool coach coach at Ohio State. He only coastal hieaux until last year we took the job in Tennessee variable who has experienced at Ohio state went there and got him. He is a great defensive back coach in his hometown there with the Titan the raiders are the titans feel are the smoothest transitions for him for a guy that has that type of skill set big corner wants to play a lot of man to man and as we said before he's from Tennessee and wants to go back there and anytime if you can get a big time star like that in a smaller market like Tennessee yeah I think that they should look into that particularly when he's listed the titans previously before the season as a place he'd like to play sometimes you worry big-time star. Would he be happy going to a small market the size of the market in Jacksonville's not why he's unhappy and because of his roots in Tennessee he has already said Nashville would be a place. He wants to thirty proven that he can get national attention no no matter no matter what I mean he's he's one of the star players in the league and one of the faces of the League that we have on the defensive side of the ball one team you mentioned yesterday for I give a couple of others that that I thought really interesting was Philly Philly. Obviously is a contender philly that is the place where they need. I would argue help the most on the back end of their defense particularly the corners because is I liked now. Come Jenkins. I understand we're talking about phillies injuries those they deal with spate of season ending injuries for Philadelphia with how active Howie Roseman has been and how great he's been at almost manipulating the cap to free up space when they need it you would mention philly yesterday that to me is a really interesting fit. It would be something that if you're the Dallas cowboys and you see wait eagles got who the Eagles got jalen Ramsey at the not even at the deadline a month into the season that could be a game changer. I'M GONNA mention a team no one's attaching them to but I think they have the space the picks they have the need. What about the Los Angeles Angeles chargers now maybe they don't WanNa pay Jalen Ramsey they all they're going to have to pay Joey Bosa two guys but they have the cap space to do it? They they are right now. They know that last year they were this close to being the number one seed in the AFC Derwin James is going to come back at some point at the end of the season they already have an extraordinary corner in Casey Hayward but they're starting a guy who was an undrafted free agent couple years ago at the other corner spot if you added few had Casey Hayward Jalen Ramsey Ramsey winter when James comes back that immediately becomes far and away the best secondary in the NFL well for one next year to pay Joey Bosa Casey's already already making a bunch of money Derwin James you already know you're going to have to pay him now. Both of those guys being from Florida state sometime. You think that oh well. Maybe that would work well. Maybe that might Mike not work so I don't know they haven't been the most contract friendly to their player. Philip rivers doesn't have a contract so to me. That's a lot of money that a team that is not customary to pay a lot of money. I don't think they would have that kind of money tied up in their secondary. Just two more teams quickly obviously yesterday. We talked a lot about the chiefs. It's for the cheap since the best player available at the biggest position of need but I do think the chiefs would have real cap issues with that Patrick mahomes going to become the highest paid player forever a year from now. They paid tyreek Hill. They went they paid frank. Clark may be above market. Sammy Watkins they can get off him next year. If they want to play really well race you're adding the highest paid corner in. NFL history was what Jalen is going to become would be tough to keep an eye on the colts though called I mean the colts have enormous cap space the draft capital. They're obviously going to try to win without being a super explosive offense the culture. If I'm Chris Ballard with Andy I am calling Jacksonville and bill and trying to take their temperature on that but he plays his last game tonight for the Jaguars most likely absolutely that would be my guess about eight players to borough road

"The hundredth year of the anniversary of the NFL is this Antonio pound saga well I mean it's it's insane it's crazy and you know everything that played out it's almost the case where listen you know I get to the point we'll get to the patriot idea of it the raiders were left with no choice now they were left with no choice and you could even make the argument and before he went on Instagram early on Saturday morning and basically said release me after the you know two hundred plus thousand dollar fine which made his money not guaranteed here moving forward in that Oakland Raiders deal that they re worked after they acquired him from the Pittsburgh Steelers David that even before that when he say what he said you know with racial undertones to Mike may I could practice in in that once you do that you overstep your bounds as a player win in terms of you know not understanding the leadership of mac is general manager that he should be gone then but then you had after that you know the teary eyed apology that he had to the team right thirty million dollars correctly right there's no doubt about it and then he gets hit with a fine once again we're grew to make the announcement before that that he'll be playing right and they'll be suiting up and playing against the Denver Broncos then you get the fine once again then he goes crazy on Saturday morning on Instagram selling the raiders to release some and they end up really so it was a very interesting forty eight hours for the Oakland Raiders to say the least and you know first and foremost the one thing that you and. so when it comes to the NFL and when it comes to the owners the head coach and the GM the one thing that they're always looking for with leverages is how to take away your money and he came from that complete leverage I've also heard fancy well you can't you can't find star players they don't get fined they get fined each and every week if their wait for meeting if they mistreatment well I still watch go berserk it's just not something that the team put out to the media it's something that's handled in house right so if people think that star players don't get fined that's a ridiculous statement because it happens each and every week out of the NFL season and when you look at the structure of everything that happened on in experience GM if you don't think Jon Gruden knew exactly what was going on and was there a point good cop bad cop I don't know what you're thinking about Jon Gruden has to do that for the face of being the head coach because he doesn't want the blurred lines of the GM and head coach but he was a hundred percent on board with what Mike may I was doing that's why he hired him so that he basically can control the entire situation I grew the David but here's the point I have is the one I get rid of them initially you know after he gets into the altercation with may Oct the verbal one people say downplay whether how physical just was but just when you have that go down a practice and you have Antonio brown screaming what he did when I repeat it Mike mac on the practice field why not just get rid of a man don't you at that point when you decide to bring him back are you sending the wrong message to the rest of the guys on that team because you know a cures everything vitamin W. winning that's what cures everything and when you look at him with that hundred million dollar contract this team going on the road to play a division rival in Denver they're a better football team with him out on the field that being said what else is the big thing that they're looking at they're looking at next year moving to Las Vegas and having a big splash to bring that fan base and to bring a drawing crowds to the Los Vegas readers to you look at the overall landscape of things. Jon Gruden gave him as many opportunities as possible because let's face it that's what had photo gallery supreme GM's and owners to win Taylor puts production out on the field right now and they were left with no other choice and then the conspiracy theorists are that brown and drew Rosenhaus right his agent Bailey forced their way out of Oakland left them with no choice to do this and then he ends up with the New England Patriots Rosen house in the pats Abella check of a very good relationship he signs up there joins the litany of guys who've had trouble careers before going to notice anyone that's according to the in areas Tom price range of all fourth fifth. that's exactly I Randy moss Corey Dillon guys that had issues with other organizations went to New England I basically bought it and now it's a one year deal ten million guaranteed five million in incentives we can earn fifteen million dollars he's not could be playing against the Steelers later on tonight as the patriots and Steelers do battle but you will look at the very fact of now he ends up with the patriots and now you look at this patriot team with adult men brown and Gordon yeah I know no grown cow ski but you look at it and for Antonio brown everything that transpired in Oakland I would probably bet anything that none of that will transpire up in New England no because there's veteran leadership in the locker room you think about the last chance he's got without a doubt if you think about things that took place in our locker room when you have a Michael street him when you have an Antonio Pierce we have myself Chris me and other guys that our leaders that we don't let the stuff take place in the locker room and go out into the public figure who's gonna stop anything he did in Oakland there's not a single player on there that has a resume like him that could put him in his place now go into New England it is a completely different story because they've won without him and they don't need him to win but let me ask you this question now I mean sometimes guys just go author yeah I mean go off the tracks yeah know he's definitely offer the tried your office right there's no doubt about it but I my point being is that you know I don't know if even that was great veteran leadership on Oakland if they were gonna pull a massage I mean nobody could do no I don't know what what's even if there was to prevent exactly what transpired and what happened and how hay wire it got whether it be the feet the helmet how they support him through all of that and then the very fact of he they handed him down you know basically a fifty thousand dollar fine he goes haywire has the apology then after screaming at back then he gets find out once again they're going after his money and rightfully so pure the Oakland Raiders because what would lead you to believe the behavior is going to change but I'll tell you it doesn't get a say I don't get a sense even if that veteran leadership was there in Oakland that that also was going to. change with the way that he acted out there in Oakland not it's not a winning program like you love Pittsburgh yeah and the way that we love Pittsburgh and you didn't hear about all this nonsense I'm sure was all gone behind the house down in my home when was a cover up of the Steelers recovered as team week seventeen when the plane for the playoffs no doubt about it but I would say this is that the Steelers were smile and and the very fact is is that they don't have to deal with the headache and then all of a sudden the headache bloomed out an open window and I heard everything that tree outside with Antonio brown and and it's all sort of go along with that you know the one thing that you always said as an NFL player that was like to joke around the NFL players go to the raiders to die that's where their career ends and obviously with him you knew that he didn't want to be a part of training camp hence the whole helmet situation the whole foot thing the footings wanting them with the helmet you weren't even practicing anyway so it's not just to disappear from practice well you're doing the standard to ride the bike or doing whatever for your feet at that time that's once again him believing that he is more important and has a different set of standards than the rest of the football team so there wasn't a player nor do I think Oakland could have ever done that now he falls into a situation where it's going to the New England Patriots and like I said it's completely different because they won without you and they can win without you so the standard that the put on it and the patriot way is do nothing outside yourself to cause controversy for this lock permit do bulletin board material we just talked about the examples that worked brand I think they're different points in their career but look how bad it was for channel chill Cinco because it showed that he was in a dynamic player he was the Purcell St precise route runner and he couldn't pick up with the language and we're Tom Brady wants you to be everybody knows that Tom Brady is a quarterback he demands you to do things to perfection and if you don't break your route off the ten yards and break it off at night you're not going to be on the football field that's the difference were Antonio brown is different the channel two signal and fits more into the mold of like Randy moss because they work that well it of players are more. technicians that nowadays is just to biting by the rules and just make sure you stay clear of all this yeah and I think he will be is I'll be ours you David if he blows up in New England we'll be all rights will be god and not just that I don't know how many teams that will be clamoring to bring a man at the kind of money that he's looking to make music Tony brown does want to sign a one year deal worth two million dollars he's looking for the kind of contract that he got in essence in a performance based contracts but he is getting ten million dollars guaranteed you want to do the re work from the Steelers the Oakland Raiders it did now we lost a lot of money yeah terms of Garin a lot on it a lot of money but he has the opportunity to make it back and if he is able to change the discourse the conversation around him and have a great year and buy into that patriot system and he minds is pleasing cues and there are no way should be as you know this he is going to be under the magnifying glass and they're gonna be people Diggin it see what's going on behind the scenes if he's able turn all that around then everything will be fine for Antonio brown then okay contract next no doubt about it but if he doesn't I don't know how many teams will be clamoring to bring and then all of the thirty two year old receiver this is his last opportunity let's face it if you go to New England and you box this for them taking the chance on you as a player and you go back to what you just did in Oakland and back to all the things that you did in Pittsburgh yeah that talent won't outweigh the cancer that you'll be in that locker room and the headache that the coaches and GM selected deal with so this is really his last opportunity with bill Belichick because I truly feel this organization of bill Belichick are the only ones that can

Antonio Brown signs with Patriots after Raiders release

"The latest in the Antonio brown saga of the Oakland Raiders have had enough of brown but the New England Patriots are willing to take a chance a wide receiver was cut by the raiders after he requested his release it was the latest turn of a dramatic first and only summer with the team brown had been upset about his latest team fine from Oakland over an outburst of practice and general manager Mike may I that final while the raiders to avoid more than twenty nine million dollars in guarantees over the next two years of brown's contract to open decided to cut ties entirely without brown ever playing for the team ESPN's Adam Schefter explained the raiders decision after a tumultuous week how much can one team stands before it actually makes the decision to part ways with the player it would love to keep Jon Gruden wants to keep him it was one thing after another and if you're the Oakland Raiders were trying to get ready for your season to begin on Monday Night Football against Denver Broncos you want clean and easy living your no distractions and they were not getting that they were dealing with something every single day with Antonio brown vowing not to play on Monday night this what went on and on and the raiders figured that they were better off just cutting their losses so the patriots game a one year deal worth up to fifteen million with nine million guaranteed loading the patriots up on talent but how old brown do under their coach bill ballot Jack and I fell network Steve Mariucci was some thoughts I can just see him holding up a lan party trophy at the end of the season with that great patriots team already or I can see him being waved during the middle of the year because he continues his videos in this post in his recording called phone conversations just some bizarre behavior so it's got to stop because I think if it if it doesn't I think this three strikes and you're out brown will not be eligible to play in the team's opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers Browns for. armored

Did the Raiders contact Antonio Brown's agent before Brown apologized?

"Something i wanted to get to the bottom of was did the raiders in fact contact. Rosenhaus awesome tonio brown's agent. I've seen this kind of float around but i'm not sure that this is what happens i wanted to see if either of you know <hes> if he was contacted before we're antonio brown's apology on friday and told that the guaranteed money and his contract would be voided as it was at that point so at that point basically antonio only lebron's going in apologizing knowing that the thirty million is a hit is that something that we know was already told to him before the apology or i don't i think to <hes> the bottom line on that is that they didn't have to i mean he knows as well as anybody once they imposed that discipline. They have the right to go after it so i mean i think he's smart enough to know without having that conversation that that was what they were angling for. It was clear we talked about <hes> when we first saw these letters on wednesday basically all those letters. There's are is is a legal paper trail down the road to say here's what happened. We had we had these issues. We had to find him. This is what went on that's all. Those letters are for <hes> so i think rosenhaus kind of knew he probably explai- tube and there i'm positive on some level even though no it's illegal according to the rules of the n._f._l. Under the c._b._a. I'm positive that rosenhaus was talking to other teams and saying if this happens if the contract is voided if for run out what is the market and i'm sure he knew what it was and so like. Did he know those things. I don't. I'm sure he did was explicitly laid out by the raiders. I'm i'm not sure about how that worked but <hes> i'm sure he knew exactly what the situation was yeah so in other words. He knew the patriots were looking at him and that he could play there. Air instead of explicitly said i'm sure he knew what the market was. When you think of maybe this is like a wild theory and so. I got on tin foil hat. You're so picture that all of us but if <hes> excuse me antonio brown got to the raiders he was happy happy for a little while then started practicing with these guys right maybe gets the training camp and he's like what they're not going to be very good and then he's just decides besides you know what bleep this. I'm just going to act ugly. I'm gonna throw crap all over the walls until i'm just going to keep doing it. Even though you tell me to stop even though you tell me you know i'm gonna find you find me on posting on instagram like i'm going to now make it even bigger mess and then he knows that he enforce himself out because he knows that there's maybe a winner. That will be there for him. I think that it's not out of their own with possibility as i now take my tinfoil hat off and put my reporter reporter hat right back on that. This is something that could have happened because when it's five hours after somebody releases you that you are with defending super bowl champions. There's maybe somebody should look into that right. I mean i think i went once the further with my tin foil will happen i tweeted and it was more of a joke but <hes> as as everything in my life does it relates to seinfeld but there was there was an episode of seinfeld where the mets wanted to hire george costanza away from the yankees and they couldn't just hire him because it would be tampering and they wouldn't be able to go hire them away from team so they told him to do everything he could to get fired from the yankees. He started dragging the world series trophy around he was wearing babe ruth pants from the yankee museum. <hes> everything do get fired so that the mets would be able to hire him like in my mind. Bella check like a go create chaos out there. We need to bring you in. That's the only way we can get you and that's again a complete and total conspiracy. Uh but i like to think that it's true. Let's talk about some of the possible reaction and we can expect here from the raiders because i wanna in a hypothesize what derek carr might say about antonio brown's tweet of bumper cars meaning. He and his brother david had been doing some conversation about antonio brown. That's what i interpreted that tweet demean. I can't imagine it would mean anything else so cars generally very nice well-spoken guy in front of the media very even temperament. Do we expect any crazy reaction from him. Certainly not i mean he's a quarterback right and quarterbacks are always is going to be measured in what they say. Now i do sort of wish that we have been hearing directly from derek carr instead of through really an intermediary as his brother on n._f._l. Network right. I think especially because derek carr was in the locker room today and we were told as he came back in that he was not going to be talking and and that's fine. He certainly has that right and he's a quarterback. He speaks one time a week but i just think it would have been nice to hear directly from derek carr car <hes> since you know he had been nothing but supportive i totally respect dirk are not talking but i think that you know it just it just would have been nice to hear from the quarterback in that particular situation and he doesn't have to but he could've essentially descending out press releases. I mean through his approach. That's what he's doing in. They're not it's not it's not like they're being secretive about it. I think that's that's the one thing i'll say about this is like if it was just some secret that if it was some random person in the media and derek carr was feeding things to get it out there and not talking to the media locally but hey i'm gonna feed this to whoever you you know whatever national reporter and it's coming out saying oh source close to the team said like that would be a little bit different to me than in this case. It's basically his brother going on tv serving mrs mouthpiece and saying explicitly. I talked to derrick this morning. Here is what he said. I think they're being pretty open about it. It just it clearly rubbed antonio radio brown the wrong way and you know we saw the other day he unfolded the raiders and derek carr on instagram and then reformed the raiders but not car like that was pretty telling of where they are have a check dam sure he unveiled the raiders as well now he did. Yes yeah <hes> but you know. I think that was incredibly telling that when he did follow the raiders he did not re follow derek carr. You know i it was pretty clear that that relationship was was heading in the wrong way. Even though derek carr continued to say how close they were and how they've played well after field and here's the other thing it listen it's part of the job we understand but how many times jon gruden was asked how many times micmac was asked just how many times derek carr was asked about the distractions in about everything that's going on and how many times they basically said. You're inventing this you guys the media are inventing the story story. No no weren't by the way to the same thing to the readers out there to the fans out there like these things are not invented. There's a reason isn't that story. Lines are storylines. This was something that was going on and it was bubbling over all the time and it was distracting the team. It was bothering the team. It certainly had been an issue for a while and now it just has has reached that point where they couldn't deal with it anymore but i think it would absolutely not be surprising if it was something that tonio earlier brown was like i need to do this i need to get out and this is my way out and the other thing is it wasn't blown out of proportion either. That's the that's the phrase that like gets on my nerves a little bit. <hes> men like all these things you're saying. They were blown out of proportion. It's blown out of proportion. He's just a wide receivers blown out of proportion. Friggin von miller said that on on a conference call the other day no. It's not blown out of proportion when you're yelling at g._m. In practice right you're posting your fines on instagram. When you ask on instagram to be released win. You recorded your ahead coach with a stencil your head coach with the conversation. Put it on a two minute youtube video in a two party consent state. I don't really think any of these things are being blown out of proportion so i love what jonathan abram had to say on twitter and he put this out just about a little over an hour ago he says in today's world the worst drug there is called attention

"I've had for quite some time Adams answer your questions to civically about what's up with Jon Gruden what Jon Gruden RJ dig this. Jon Gruden was never that could have coach he inherited a hall of fame defense, Warren Sapp who was a linebacker Derrick Brooks who. Yeah. Brooks. I mean Brooks had a pick six every single game. And and they had who was the other linebacker. Well, no, they had well Sino mean Lynch was on the Lynch. They had Tiki twin brother Iran day barber. The guy won the SuperBowl wasn't even one of those guys. He was like a safety Dexter something by point is he went twelve and four that year inherited a hall of fame stacked defense from twenty Dungy after that with Tampa Bay. He had a losing record the rest of his career Tampa Bay and never won another playoff game. Again. I don't think he's actually coach. Yeah. You know, the guy on it. I know he's a friend of the show is Mike Lombardi is one of three or four guys. I in the media that I really know the inside of football. And he writes about Gruden is in his book. He says an excellent and elite quarterback coach not necessarily a great head coach, which is an executive function not so much a tactical function. So. I think ruins more of a technician they just got so famous that he's now that coach by the way as much as Brian would like to take credit for that theory. He was reading a text that my wife had sent or. Word this morning because believe me, I've heard this speech syllable for syllable about their Brooks being shutdown plagiarism and Lynch my phone shelling. All right, sorry last pick where the raiders and on the raiders in one main reason for this. Reuters playing hard that's obviously just wine because if the series get the Vegas every win count people there tanking they're not taking they're just trying to get to values. And then you probably saw Lamar Jackson. He ran the ball for Baltimore twenty seven times and possible the quarterback nineteen you'd never see that. No. And it was a surprise last week this week. It's not gonna be a surprise. It's going to be a low scoring game. We're getting double digits plus eleven raiders pick number two. All right. Thank you are Jay bell. And you can check out the website pre game dot com, ever great. How they are..

"It into patch. Make it into something good everybody, even Mahomes was inconsistent buddy missed squeezy, est. One to me. I mean, Mahomes when you watch him play. It didn't even look like football. I couldn't believe some stuffy would do he'd yell that from throw and it didn't matter because they need to score sixty. It was so that kind of the gap you're talking about from kind of projecting these guys in an NFL system and watching them in professional football. He was the hardest one. But the other one that's quietly a huge jump Jared Goff played in one of the most air raid heavy systems, you can possibly imagine. Sonny dykes is an area truth. And now Jared Goff is under center. Two-thirds the time. These things can have could you imagine going from the area to Jeff Fisher? They were joking with us the other day, my working theory. So his Jeff Fisher's last before NATO's were rob Verona rubber on a date, yet significant cool. I don't know where they are. They may have been just. John Brian Schottenheimer's name. It was like I would start asking around not that I'm plugged in NFL as you guys and what is wrong with this. Like, how does it keep happening? They go actually like Jeff has a hard time filling out of staff. And so that was that was the golf thing. You know, look, I mean that first year Gough got so bad. We started hearing Fisher rumors through the media that he'd always wanted once. Hugh Jackson, loses his gaze. Well. I liked Mahomes Watson and went like, that's pretty convenient. None of the guys you took. All right before we do some QNA stuff. We get some other things that I wanna get to here. I wanna do a little bit of this. Who would you rather be? Okay. And because we're in Vegas, and we haven't touched on yet. Do we have a lot of raiders fans here ready to go you guys psyched about what you're important? I'm so sorry bay two story. I feel like I heard nothing. I'm not even exaggerating. Who would you rather be right now? I think what the money it's not fair, but Jon Gruden or Jason Garrett. This is mean, it's Gruden. It's grew because the money, but that's the only reason I also this is more. But I was reading the other day. Warming is going to really you'd be in twenty twenty eight around when Gruden his contract is over. So he made this ride this into the. We don't have to look back on this era or anything like that. And it's going to be fine. I think it's probably Gruden because the money just all of that stuff. But I also think that Jon Gruden has. No self-awareness. Yeah. So that's probably why it's Gruden to because he doesn't know he's doing a bad job. So it says if he's waking up this bad now granted lake, but nothing makes you moreover Reiter, right but to win a Super Bowl. And then my joke was always like, especially with the NBA coaches like as soon as you went to ESPN, I would be like who do you think you're gonna have working for four months because owners would be at home watch game BA tonight at two AM be like that's a really great point. I'm gonna give Mike Brown. Four years. Mike Mike Brown's on here. Right. With us at ESPN. And that's what happened with Gruden. The raiders thing is a little bit different. Because you feel like it went wrong and you're getting back together, but he became this. Epoch fixable. Just because he had a good personality Monday night football. And that's insane. Steve Kerr is like the exact opposite mystique Kerr's. The actual competent coach came out of the media. But it that two thousand two to three the bucks on super to to Jon Gruden wanna Super Bowl, but you wanna Super Bowl with the greatest past defense in the history of modern football. And that's why as this entire thing was happening. It's while. Yeah. Jon Gruden want a Super Bowl this. And that I still never understood it because giant won a Super Bowl incredible defense, and he was leak for ten years. None of it makes sense. It's gone about as bad as I figured it would go, you know, the group thing was always kind of a weird spot because doing again was there every day..

"Your coins your crypto currency one hour from now blazing five picks. It takes a week with a lot of movement on the lines. I generally don't go after the biggest games, but the biggest games of the one. I like this week. Joy Taylor is joining me on a Friday. Good morning. Good morning to you. This is a usually on Friday. We try to talk about the game last night. Of course, it was a blow out. But that doesn't mean it's not interesting. So let's start with something. We predicted before the season started that Jon Gruden and the raiders would not work. Jon Gruden is great at selling himself. He is. And that is a skill. That is a skill. That's why he's a TV star. Have you watched Monday night football this year, they could use him? And he's missed most great football coaches in NFL history. Are not great at selling themselves. Chuck knoll of the Steelers was not Tom Landry. The Cowboys was not Bill Walsh. Bella check cells Paul Brown. They were not television stars Bill Walsh was actually the late. Bill Walsh is kind of bad on television. Through the sheer force of personality. Jon Gruden has sold himself as the quarterback whisperer. He's had twelve one popped rich Gannon. If you go one for twelve I'm probably going to give the player more of the credit rich Gannon than the coach Jon Gruden. I did think it was interesting and ironic last night that Kyle Shanahan a guy who does not sell himself who is the actual quarterback. Whisper took a guy. None of us myself included head ever heard of and one game in a out over a former pro bowler. Derek carr. But Kyle Shanahan does not sell himself. He doesn't talk. He's kind of rigid. He's a football guy threw in through last night. Jon Gruden is not only not the quarterback whisper. He was the second best quarterback coach in the bay area. Nick Mullins, no idea, Chris Mullin's? I know Nick Mullins, no idea looked brilliant, by the way, dick fi towel in Jon Gruden have something in common. They're both better on TV than they were coaching their sport Vitali like Gruden is an amazing amazing marketer. He is he is. He is the biggest Dame in college basketball. At least was for twenty years. That's not a criticism. Dick was great at selling himself. Chuck Daly wasn't Gregg Popovich isn't Brad Stevens? Doesn't Bill self not so much it? Is a skill to sell yourself. I by the way, the guy in the White House right now got there on shear power personality, not policy. It's a skill and Gruden vital. Trump. They're great at it..

"I know my hands. It's and you always talk about like the giant suck whole suck hole. Right. Look at the size of that suckle. I know it's big do. Pour water right down your end. It's I think the correct term is ergonomically designed look how it's like a like it. It looks like the shape of a kind of an hour glass shape. So it fits in your hand. When you you get done with a set. And you put the bar down your racket. You've got a lot of weight. And then you just like give him a cooler water and fits right in your hand. Love core. Water. You know? Yeah. I I don't know who sounds more silly right now, you are Jon Gruden why what's wrong with John grew. Oh, man. Did you hear him? Did you see them on that inspired effort against the forty Niners? Do you want to talk about rolling over? I mean, do you not know are your players so dumb that? They don't realize that that film was going to be seen by everybody in the league. Like when you get cut by Jon Gruden you to realize that the other teams are going to see the way you played in. It's going to end up eventually costing you money is that just a sign. I mean, is it the sign that nobody wants to play in Oakland or that nobody wants to play for Jon Gruden right now. I so you're signing with Gruden in this because it's as much the players have quit on Gruden as it appears that grund is sick of these players. He doesn't think. All right. So here's the thing before the game grund interview. All right. And it's it's great. It's classic Jon Gruden, but but here's what he had to say about the direction that the raiders are going in. I got a cell phone. Just like you and everybody else I get a lot of phone calls from people that are dying to come and play here..

"Dying to commonplace here. I'm just telling you they're dying to play for the raiders to have salary cap space, and to have a chance to talk to the people that you really want to wear the silver and black the guys you really want to wear the silver black and represent this team. That's exciting. First and last here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Eight Jon Gruden seems like he's going out of his way to make sure the guys that are on this current raiders roster know that he doesn't like them. Like, we hear all the time about coaches using the media to send a message to guys you better. Hope the Jon Gruden is the exact opposite that there is some sort of other worldly show of support going on behind closed doors, but this grown man football's the NFL, you don't have to go way to coddle anybody. But at the same time, these guys are smart, they see and know their coach came from the media understands the media for the most part and to go out there and say this and know that it's going to get back to that locker room in this way. I can't I can't wrap my head around this Jon Gruden. We know he's a media guy for the last number of years is a football player and a football football coach, I should say for a long time. This is baffling that is baffling because we're gonna we heard a lot last night about this raiders team quitting on Jon Gruden and the the things that come in that territory when you're losing. And when you're trending this. And when the tanking word keeps getting thrown around over and over again, all of that becomes natural in a certain way for this group. But hearing this is Jon Gruden it seems like he's inviting it because what does this tell every player on this team? But you're probably not in our future plans either. We've sold off the best guys on our team to remind you in a very almost patriot esque way that you don't matter in our grand plans at this point. Now quitting is a whole 'nother thing Darren Woodson are ESPN NFL analyst on sportscenter yesterday and said that's not what's happening with this raiders grew to sit there and say watch Vilma say guys in quitting on him. Because he's a professional. These guys are out there. They are again, they're not displaying for Jon Gruden. They're playing for everyone else. That's going to be watching them throughout the process. It's it's about the lack of personnel at they have they're going through injuries. And they don't have any dynamic players that are out there making big plays football team. And today, they went out there like they played all all these in the last couple of years, they're dysfunctional with a lack of personnel. And this is what happened. And I tell you what Darren is right in this sense. You're always cognizant, especially the guys that make up the meat of the bell curve of this roster that you're going to likely be playing your season somewhere else in any given year to begin with. And you're always cognizant thirty one other teams are going to see this. But what he said there is true at this point. I can't speak to every player on that teams relationship with Jon Gruden again. Maybe it looks better behind closed doors. But if I'm a player hearing, these things in the media, I can tell you I'm probably not playing for Jon Gruden that much can be sure I will go out there. And like we have happened with all losing teams. You put it on the line for your family, your reputation what you're trying to do furthering your place in this league. But playing four coaches something for a lot of guys goes out the window at this level to begin with. But when you hear that vote of confidence, and I say that with the utmost. Sarcasm built into that font for you guys. Makes it pretty easy to say. Well, I'm definitely not playing for that guy..

"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. Yeah, you just had the world's best and you let him go John real it back in more coach. Les performer, Peter King is right around the corner. He's got strong opinions on the patriots..

"And I'm always like that doesn't mean anything to me. Show me proof. I keep hearing Jon Gruden. Quarterback guru might take away his Kyle Shanahan. He makes everybody way better. He made RG three got more votes than Andrew luck for rookie of the year is some of this Gruden quarterback guru stuff. It's just the best hamburger in town sold here that it's a lot of brand shouting, but I don't see a ton of proof on it absolute. You put the graphic up about the quarterbacks they'd had in Oakland and in Tampa, and it's there haven't been any distinguished ones out of rich Gannon. Now I play for gruden's first team in ninety eight, Oakland, Jeff. George was there. I was doing rich Gannon came rich Gannon. I played together in Kansas City. Rich Gannon was chiefly responsible for the culture change. Load ruin is. A great coach does a great job of putting together plays, but rich Gannon hilt his teammates to a level of accountability that allowed it to go. We talked about Tom Brady and Belichick. It is a lot easier when your quarterback is able to kind of disseminate the message in Oakland with John grooten. Now we dealing with Derek Carr, can Derek Carr handled a heart coach Gruden typically does and elevate the rest of his team. What is telling about this raider situation with Derek Carr when they dismissed Khalil Mack. Jon Gruden said, we can't have too high priced players. So he basically chose Derek Carr over Khalil Mack. Most people would tell you Khalil Mack is the better player, but now Derek Carr is seen as the best player when the best player and the head coach are together, they're tied at the hip. So everyone is looking at Derek are expected him to make it right. We don't have a good defense. It doesn't matter school more points. We don't have all the weapons, though it in tight windows, make those receivers, catch balls. This is I think the most pressurized moment that. Derek Carr would feel and partly is because Jon Gruden has put him in a situation where he has to be the franchise quarterback, both of they're not jobs, but both of their reputations on the line with how this move turns out the next couple of years further record the I know you like levian bell. I would like to, I would like to go. Here we go. Well is just as little data that you would acknowledge having scouted for the Seahawks. Did you ever go up to Seattle? Oh, it was always there. Umbrellas rain are very valuable. Yes, in Phoenix. So I used to live at Tampa. I had golf Shire's and then I moved to Portland and I had no golf shirts. So value depends often on geographic location. I think the jets should strongly consider with one hundred five million cap space lady in bell. He'd be their best receiver tight end and running back because he grabbed her. Yes, I don't think he's valuable in Pittsburgh. Please. The data please for Bucky Brooks who keeps telling me how great Levy embellishing got pay him? Hell Pittsburgh's better without him yards points games, third down. I on this offense. Honestly, I, it looks nice. It looks that excellent data is is excellent, but here's, here's what I would say. And it came out of the Cleveland locker room. They talked about it. You notice the only scored twenty one points. Yeah, and you notice that big band had a tough game when it came to throwing three turnovers lot of sacks. Yeah, part of what happened in their game, the Cleveland Browns had James garner. You can have whatever you want. We go take big being away. We're gonna. Take the explosive plays away. The explosive plays in the National Football League. Come through the passing game. You have to throw to score. You run stuff to move the ball down the field to set up the big place. What happens with James. Connor James, Connor is not a multifaceted weapon like levian Bill. So t's will go in and say, look, we'll let him eat, but we'll take care of AB. We'll make sure we take your juju and we will make been rothlisburger half the drive. The link to feel thowing short passes is e patient and disciplined enough to do it throughout his career. He traditionally hasn't, which is why he didn't like Todd Haley because Todd Haley wanted to play small ball because. What the great quarterbacks drew Brees Tom Brady they win because they think they'd be to a paper cuts. He likes to hit you with the big thing..

"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..

"We have the tickets. Let's let's start out with Jon Gruden and chip Kelly, because I think they have a little something in common. And when you look around football and the explosion of money in the league, trying to coach his make a ton of money Bill Belichick. No one knows a salary. I'd be shocked if it's not like over twelve million dollars, Nick saving ten million bucks, Jim Harbaugh a ton of cash. But the one thing that does Andy Reed's making huge money forever. Daboh Sweeney urban Meyer all these coaches. The one thing they all have in common though is they never left the industry. So they're edged while they making money. They never kind of left the bubble of football and just kinda got a feel for, wow, there's more out there. I don't need the kind of work as hard. Wow. You can do other things in life than just sit at the office twenty four, seven. And I think when you see Jon Gruden and chip Kelly, Jon Gruden this season, these last ten days for Jon Gruden have been an absolute train wreck. I mean, an absolute utter trainwreck trading Khalil Mack, and then you know, lying in with Lisa Saulters for the nation to see the Khalil. Mack did not want to be a raider. Let's just unequivocally false. Then to the Monday night football game where he just lost in the second half. Then the following day after an embarrassing loss signing Martavis Bryant, who he had previously traded for third round pick and in cut before the season, very Al Davis like move. And then chip Kelly who one of the more hype coaches in recent memory. When I was scouting, I went through the university of Oregon, whereas with the eagles it was before we hired him and the program was absolutely home, and he was the apple of everyone's..

"Got your dude. Now fixed that offensive line get a tight end draft another running back. But you got your dude. Let me shift to Jon Gruden. I've been a doubter since day one. I have been a doubter since day one and let me say first of all, Oakland, the organization, it'd be tougher Bella check to win their this is this is not easy. They actually are being sued by their city. They don't really know where they're going to play next year. Last night, my wife said, is that a baseball stadium they're playing in and I said, yes, and it's actually not only a bad football stadium. It's the worst baseball stadium. So the raiders are playing in a baseball stadium, and it's also the worst. They tarp off the upper deck that got the poorest owner. You know what the raiders stadium right now is the restaurant. My wife refuses to go into because the bathrooms are filthy and the floors are dirty. It's hard to win there. But that wasn't good. That wasn't good last night. Second, half, no communication, Derek Carr, receivers, Gruden, no communication. Outscored Twenty-three. Nothing second half. And by the way, the Rams didn't play any of their top players in preseason. They didn't play any of them. The Rams had the fewest starters taking snaps of any team in the NFL in the preseason. So they needed a first-half to warm up on the road and they did, and then it was like embarrassing. And I'm not saying it's easy because outside a linebacker, the Rams are good everywhere, and even at linebacker it's not like it's a massive liability. They are loaded in the secondary loaded defensive line, terrific, offensive line superstar, running back way above average, wide receivers in a really good head coach and a top defensive coordinator. And Jared Goff is really special. So I'm not saying it's easy. The raiders are a mass and the Rams are exceptional. I mean, the Rams last year had the coach of the year. They had the offensive player of the year. They had the defensive player of the year. They the special teams coach of the year. They're good and the raiders a mess. But ten penalties in the first half, no adjustments couldn't score in the second half lack of communication, Derek Carr called a two time out two and a half minutes into the game that wasn't good. I didn't by the Jon Gruden higher. I like him as a broadcaster, and I thought he was a fine coach, but I do think his brand has always been better than his accomplishments. But last night twenty years ago. Jon Gruden was Sean McVeigh. Last night. Jon Gruden was schooled by Sean McVeigh. Good sometimes can be difficult. What's the difference between? Good, pretty good, really good, bad, bad food, bad movie, bad restaurant, bad traffic. You can spot that bad coaching that looked second-half. Detroit look like a poorly coach team and Oakland in the second half looked like they got completely absolutely out-schemed out communicated and worked. Didn't by the higher still don't buy it. Maybe it'll all come together in Vegas. Coming up next Rod Woodson hall of Famer strong opinions.

"And that's not the way it worked as a head coach. It is a series of working with other people. To add onto that. They gave them a ten year contract which removes him even more from other people. Nobody gets a ten year contract. He's got the longest contract, the richest contract it makes him unreliable. He's got ultimate power. In fact, he's got more power than the owner, certainly more than the general manager, because if the owner came and said, you're fired, he'd say, here's my attorney OB eight, nine more years.

"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.

"The players weren't as in powered but players today and rightfully so have an opinion because we go to these games for the players, not the GM scouts and coaches. Jon Gruden will figure out all the football stuff. I don't think you'll figure it out immediately. He'll be a little rigid. It'll take a little while it did for Joe Gibbs. But the world's changing now. And that's what worries me about the Khalil Mack situation. The best defensive player arguably in the NFL and Jon Gruden isn't talked to him since February. That's not a schematic thing. That's a personality thing. That's the way it used to be thing. It used to be the NFL was all about the coach, not even Bill Belichick is calling all the shots in the NFL anymore. You want to call the shots. There's other places to do it. It's not the NFL. It's not the NBA. It's not major league baseball where managers are increasingly replaceable. So I worry when I read this story and I gotta be honest, I, I laughed at the headline. Jared cook says, Jon Gruden is showing the raiders quote, old grainy film from like nineteen seventy six. I just don't think this thing's gonna work long term. It may work for a year. Dare. Eric Carr is an unbelievable quarterback, but I gotta give my staff credit. They found something.

"jon gruden" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd

"The players weren't as in powered but players today and rightfully so have an opinion because we go to these games for the players, not the GM scouts and coaches. Jon Gruden will figure out all the football stuff. I don't think you'll figure it out immediately. He'll be a little rigid. It'll take a little while it did for Joe Gibbs. But the world's changing now. And that's what worries me about the Khalil Mack situation. The best defensive player arguably in the NFL and Jon Gruden isn't talked to him since February. That's not a schematic thing. That's a personality thing. That's the way it used to be thing. It used to be the NFL was all about the coach, not even Bill Belichick is calling all the shots in the NFL anymore. You want to call the shots. There's other places to do it. It's not the NFL. It's not the NBA. It's not major league baseball where managers are increasingly replaceable. So I worry when I read this story and I gotta be honest, I, I laughed at the headline.
