Regarding Gruden, I wasn't even interested in him as just a head coach. Sure as heck wouldn't be interested in him with total control of the team.

And Gruden thinks he'd deserve total control after taking the Bucs (with Dungy's players and Monte Kiffin as DC) from the Super Bowl through mediocrity to the point where his players told the team they refused to play if the team kept Gruden in charge. That's almost beyond a huge ego. That's almost a disconnect with reality.

Clearly, this is a guy who fervently believes his own hype.

With how attractive Carolina's job was with no GM in place, Rivera needs to deliver consistent playoff's and a Super Bowl win in the next couple of years. Otherwise keeping Rivera was a mistake. This isn't about Gruden, Rivera or Kelly. Just the job being attractive to head coaches in general. Carolina would've been able to get what ever HC they wanted to have.

i don't care about gruden, but what is a big deal was him saying that the panthers was the only HC gig he was interested in. i just wonder how many other top coaching prospects out there would be wanting it as well and how many of them would be better at getting this team in the playoffs than what rivera has managed to do.

And for those of you that think Gruden would have been so bad based on his past, do you not think maybe he has learned a few lessons after being able to sit back and observe for awhile?

After all, many of you are expecting an epiphany from Rivera and Chud in year 3, but can't imagine guys like Gruden and Cowher second guessing some of their earlier failings?

I'd prefer the question of whether or not Gruden would be better this time around be answered somewhere else.

In the wake of DC Rob Ryan's dismissal, Dallas assistants on the defensive side of the ball have been told that they must "interview for their jobs" (ESPN Dallas, cited in the Red Zone)

One of those assistants is a name Panther fans may remember.

(no, I don't think we'll bring him back; Eric Washington and Sam Mills III look to be doing a pretty good job).

I remember when he took a job in Chapel Hill, then dropped them for the Dallas job before setting foot on campus

Wouldn't surprise me one bit if the Raye-Jets story came from the same place that Acee's Raye favored as next GM story from during the regular season did.
