I'm a fan of Gruden and think he would and will be a great HC once again.

He is not going to be the same coach he was at Oak and Tam ....he wil be much better

Hurray for subjective analysis!!!!

How are you going to prove this statement?

lol

either that or he was a never was that backed in to a title on a team he didn't build and then ran it into the ground

cowher would admittedly be a substantially better choice than him

Gruden's resume' is built primarily on one Super Bowl (won on the backs of Tony Dungy and Monte Kiffin).

Meh, go research what Dungy did in the Playoffs the years before Gruden got there with this Buc team and see why he was blown out in Tampa Bay.

Remember, the team Gruden beat in the Super Bowl? The Raiders, the team Gruden built and Bill Callahan road Gruden's back to the Super Bowl with. ;)

There is one difference between the Bucs and us, they have a Lombardi.

Not full control

If he was smart, he shoulda just took the HC job and worked his way up

probably a couple other high profile HC candidates able to cherry pick their jobs who very well could have the panthers as the cherry they have their eye on.

Especially if Gettleman can get the cap looking reasonable in the next 2 years.

And you're okay with how he handled the team after that?

Specifically, okay enough to hand over total control of the franchise?

that's only if he didn't have a cush job somewhere else.

he's reached a place where he's obviously comfortable where he's at and doesn't need a job as a HC, but if he was able to build the team the way he wanted he'd do it.

he's doing it the smart way.

same with cowher if he's wanting control as well.

absolutely and if he's a guy that can prove himself in cleaning up the cap and getting in some good talent then a prospective coach may not feel bad working with gettleman.

Don't blame either one for wanting what they want.

I just wouldn't wanna be the guy that gives it to 'em.
