Jon Gruden Is A Broken Man Jon Gruden Is A Broken Man

The Raiders were soundly defeated this Sunday, like most Sundays, and in today’s press conference head coach Jon Gruden looked like his team played. He used to get excited about play-action passes to the fullback and pool noodles. Now he’s visorless and haggard as he announces to the assembled press that the 1-5…

Report: The Raiders Are Ready To Start Blowing It Up Report: The Raiders Are Ready To Start Blowing It Up

The Oakland Raiders have been a disaster this season, which should surprise nobody, since they spent the offseason backing up the Brinks truck for washed-up geezer Jon Gruden, trading the best defensive player in the NFL, and completing the saddest player transaction of the summer. Their lone win this season came…

The Raiders Had First-And-Goal At The 1 And Didn't Give It To Marshawn Lynch The Raiders Had First-And-Goal At The 1 And Didn't Give It To Marshawn Lynch

Down 20-3 to the Chargers in the third quarter Sunday, the Raiders put together a 74-yard drive and threatened to make it a two-possession game. A defensive pass interference penalty gave Oakland first-and-goal at the one-yard line. Marshawn Lynch was lined up in the backfield. Yes, this is all very familiar. 

Even In Victory, Jon Gruden Is Haunted By His Dumbass Choices Even In Victory, Jon Gruden Is Haunted By His Dumbass Choices

NFL.com’s Mike Silver wrote up a piece about Raiders head coach Jon Gruden to mark the man’s first NFL victory of the season. The story is kind to Gruden, but it does kick off with a lead that is bursting with schadenfreude:

Any breaking news about Jon Gruden must feel like whenever a notification block pops up in the middle of the screen while playing The Oregon Trail to Raiders fans, it’s almost never a good sign.

Report: Hell Yes, The Raiders Are Going To Give Jon Gruden More Power Report: Hell Yes, The Raiders Are Going To Give Jon Gruden More Power

The Raiders are bad. But on the other hand, they’re also old. The strangest roster in the NFL is also the most dysfunctionally run, with no one really sure who’s making the decisions. “Some of [GM Reggie] McKenzie’s own personnel staffers,” Yahoo sports reported earlier this month, “were not entirely clear on what he…

Never Mind, The Raiders Actually Want Martavis Bryant Now Never Mind, The Raiders Actually Want Martavis Bryant Now

The Oakland Raiders dropped wide receiver Martavis Bryant 11 days ago, insisting at the time that the guy they traded a third-round pick for on draft night wasn’t released because of a possible drug suspension, but rather because he wasn’t very good and kept missing practice. Now, they’ve taken him back. Bryant signed…

Jon Gruden Says He'll "Look At The Reasons Why" The Raiders Had No Pass Rush Jon Gruden Says He'll "Look At The Reasons Why" The Raiders Had No Pass Rush

The Raiders actually looked feisty in the first half of their season-opener against the Rams last night.

Everything fell apart in the second half, though, and the…

Maybe Change Is A Bad Thing? Maybe Change Is A Bad Thing?

It was a bad week to be an NFL coach making his debut on their new team. After Jon Gruden’s Raiders decided to allow the Rams to score 23 straight points on their way to a 33-13 loss, new coaches ended the first week of the regular season a combined 0-7, breaking a 17-year NFL record.

Alarmingly Red Jon Gruden: Khalil Mack Didn't Want To Be Here Alarmingly Red Jon Gruden: Khalil Mack Didn't Want To Be Here

Future former Raiders coach Jon Gruden will make his regular-season debut tonight against the Rams, but because his team will be ass and because erstwhile Raiders superstar Khalil Mack was a beast yesterday, his team’s lunkheaded decision to trade Mack last week will certainly be a constant topic of conversation…

Something About Marquette King Rubbed Jon Gruden The Wrong Way Something About Marquette King Rubbed Jon Gruden The Wrong Way

The Oakland Raiders released punter Marquette King on Friday. King, a one-time All-Pro, had signed a five-year extension in the 2016 offseason. The team cleared $2.9 million in cap space by releasing him, but it sounded like this move wasn’t completely for salary reasons. According to reports, new head coach Jon…

Why Does Jon Gruden Think The Philadelphia Stadiums Are "Downtown"? Why Does Jon Gruden Think The Philadelphia Stadiums Are "Downtown"?

Philadelphia teams have been tanking incompetently since before Sam Hinkie was alive. The 1968 Eagles started out 0-11 and looked like a lock to draft O.J. Simpson No. 1 overall. Then they won two straight to ensure that the Bills would have the top pick. In their 14th and final game that year, a young Frank Olivo…
