New Raiders coach Jon Gruden 'anxious' to meet with Marshawn Lynch

  • Kawakami Mark Davis goes in-depth on how he chased Jon Gruden for six years and how he finally got him

The question was relevant at the time because it appeared that the Raiders had done precisely that, working out an agreement with Jon Gruden before cutting Jack Del Rio loose.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, center, runs upfield during the second half of an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017, in Carson, Calif. They loved him so much the last time was there they traded him to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"A Super Bowl championship in the next three years, three to four years, that's what I'm looking at". Answering a prior question about the possibility of anthem protests by some of the Raiders players contributing to the team's 6-10 record this past season, Gruden said, "I'm going to look into all that". I am not a real deep, philosophical person. "This is something I feel deeply, strongly about, and I am going to do everything I can to hire a great coaching staff and put the Raiders back on track". I also feel a lot of loyalty and I feel a lot of responsibility to get the Raiders going again.

"But I've really missed the Raiders".

Fans lined up outside the headquarters with Chucky dolls, Super Bowl posters and their team attire hours before the Noon presser. So I just wanted to know if he had some input for me.

"I love the AFC West", Gruden said. Could we see an emphasis on pass protection to allow the 26-year-old more time to deliver downfield throws on complex schemes?

Japan to give aid to Myanmar for Rohingya return
The army chief's office said "action" would be taken against villagers and security members involved in the violence at Inn Din. "It is true that both the villagers and security forces admitted they killed the 10 Bengali terrorists", the statement read.

In 11 seasons as an National Football League head coach and having counseled numerous quarterbacks, Gruden has never tutored the individual skill and promise he will find in Carr. They hated playing for him.

Gruden, who was traded by the Raiders 16 years ago after the infamous Tuck Rule loss to New England, said the "Chiefs Kingdom" did not give him the nicest of welcomes when he was broadcasting the Chiefs playoff game on Saturday. This sounds good and all, and it wasn't made clear Tuesday, but rest assured the final say on solving those disagreements will come from Gruden. "And by far to get Jon Gruden was the toughest". There will be luxury boxes, club seats and sponsorships to sell, and no coach has been more sought after or more visible, given Gruden's role on Monday Night Football for much of the past decade. With the return of Jon Gruden, Davis is rewriting the wrong's of his late father Al Davis.

There is this theory floating around the Raiders that one huge contract was offered to precipitate the signing of another, that owner Mark Davis awarded quarterback Derek Carr a nine-figure deal last offseason with the intention of eventually offering another to the man he wanted to coach him. The guys I know that have played for Gruden have absolutely despised him. I think with Greg Olson and the system we're going to put in place, it's going to demand a lot from him and I think that's what is going to unlock the greatness in him. So, I'm not sure why he's considered some quarterback genius.

Former Raiders great Rich Gannon is rumored to be the new quarterbacks coach, however, it is not official as of Tuesday afternoon.

"Either you buy in or you're not going to be a part of it", said Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, who played one year for Gruden. "No guarantees, no promises, but I want to win". He isn't going to cry in a corner whenever he gets yelled at.
