Jon Gruden wanted Panthers job with total control

79 posts in this topic

Gruden has always had a hard-on for Carolina. Wouldn't surprise me if this rumor was bupkis, though.

We'll see how it goes next season. If Rivera falters, it will be interesting to see how many head coaching possibilities this year were holding their cards for us.

Quiz Tom Cat , Which answer is most correct:

A.) Yeah Newton has been a total bust

B.) Newton has to date has had the most successful start to a QB career in NFL HISTORY!!!!!! and has such success that other teams have adopted spread Pistol and other options to enhance their strengths as a dual threat.

C.) Fire Rivera....Hispanic coaches only deserve 2 years and these jobs are for Americans!

D.) A & C

E.) IT is B! you hate ostrich!

Technically there is no true answer to that question because both B and E are correct....you would need an "F" for this question or all of your students would bitch and moan on review day! I mean I guess you could argue you said most correct, but really the label "hate ostrich" is subjective and therefore may not be counted as fact....

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

In the six years that followed...

- only three winning seasons (two of those being 9-7)

- an overall win-loss record of 45-51

- only two playoff appearances, one and done both times

- a revolving door at the quarterback position

- players who hated him so much they told ownership they refused to play for him

What about that record says to you "I should hand total control of my franchise over to this guy"?

But hey, he sounds cool on Monday Night Football and Gruden's QB Camp :unsure:

Gruden is probably the most overhyped option of the former head coaches out there. People love his persona, but 'persona' is why Woody Johnson loves Rex Ryan. Fun as it may be to watch, it doesn't win games.

Defenders always say "it'll be different this time". I'd ask this: Do you really have enough confidence in that statement to give him complete control of the franchise?

He may someday get his shot to prove himself again, but if he does I hope it's somewhere else.

I wanted Gruden but total control? Now, I never signed up for that.

No thanks.

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?

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
