  • I WANT GRUDEN (Chucky, not his brother).

    Not sure why, but this is the one guy out there I'd be so fired up about. Someone tell me why I'm wrong for wanting him. (Being out of the game too long isn't a reason. Vermeil was out for 20 years and came back and won it all - and he was older than Gruden when he did it).

    Nothing wrong with wanting him. It is your opinion and he was a good coach. I just canít see him leaving the job he is in now

      He didn't show any interest 2 years ago so I doubt he will now.

          I think there's 2-3 jobs he might leave for. MIGHT. And I think we have one of them. Just a hunch. Maybe just a hope...

            anyone out of the game for more than 3 years will not be ready to commit to the grind and speed of coaching in todays NFL

            it was a different game when Gruden left and he has been in the cushy broadcast box for far to long to get back to that grind

            Gruden has been out of the league for almost a decade ... that is a lifetime in the NFL ... more than a lifetime

                His record wasn't all that stellar as a HC either. I know there's quite a few "ole timers" on this board (no disrespect) but I wonder how many Giants fans who say they want him haven't even seen him coach and really only know him as a fiery commentator and that's the draw.

                  are you kidding with his record? give me the qb's he had, then give me the in-the-tank franchises he rebuilt into champions (or near champions). Neither has sniffed anything of significance since he left. Let me save you on the QB thing; Gannon was a career backup, who he turned into an MVP. and Brad Johnson? enough said.

                    the grind? you should watch the hbo real sports segment on gruden at ESPN. he treats it like he's still a head coach and gets there at 4am every day looking at tape. i think his work ethic and dedication would be pretty much the least of our worries if we decided to make him head coach.

                      if you think the "grind" of being a broadcaster is anything remotely in the same stratosphere as being an NFL head coach then our conversation ends right here

                      I don't care what time he wakes up

                      Jon Gruden would be an absolutely horrible choice for HC

                        Especially when you consider how much things have changed since he coached, conceptually. Night and day

                          More to do with Reese still being here at that time I would guess. Just a hunch.

                            Except that Gruden was a maniacal worker when he was a coach, putting in legendary hours.

                            He is still reportedly the same way ... watching tape constantly and getting little to no sleep.

                            There are reasons not to want Gruden, but I don't think that him being overwhelmed by the amount of work is one ....
