    Pro Football Weekly: Jon Gruden in line to rejoin the Raiders in a "prominent" role

    The latest scuttlebutt in the league has Gruden, on the brink of turning age 50, in line to rejoin the Raiders' organization in a prominent role. The franchise’s downturn can be traced directly back to his departure a decade ago, he has a relationship with GM Reggie McKenzie from their time together in Green Bay and he has an even better understanding of the infrastructure in Oakland and the Al Davis brand of football than anyone in football. With more autonomy to run the organization how he sees fit, adapting a model that Davis taught him, Gruden is very well-positioned to resurrect a faitering franchise that went 0-for-November and has yet to win a game since owner Mark Davis put everyone on notice and said he was not pleased with the direction of the team.

    Well said.

    But let me add...this muddles things a bit. I'd be interested to know who's idea this is...or who leaked this story. I'm not familiar with Nolan Nawrocki....anyone have an idea if he's reputable?

    With open arms, I would welcome Gruden back to coach, not GM/coach, but to coach this team.

    His leadership, yeah, the get in your face, get fired up, go out there and hit somebody, don't take shizz from nobody leadership is the type of leadership this team so desperately needs right now.

    It's a bunch of BS.

    C'mon, does anyone really think Gruden isn't gonna be a head coach before possibly settling into this kind of role?

    He's gonna be a head coach again before he tries his hand in this.

    This is just a rumor.

    Well this would be surprising. Shocking in fact and I would have to eat a lot of crow on this board. I still doubt it though. I was always under the impression that when Gruden came back, it would be for a contender, or atleast an "almost there." I didn't feel that Gruden wanted to be apart of a rebuild again. I know his wife doesn't want that. She has said so herself.

    the only reason i didn't want gruden back was because i thought he would have a big input in personnel moves if he doesn't sure bring him back. Personnel wise he's terrible, he didn't build that team in oakland or tampa bay. He did however drive a very talented tampa bay team into the ground with his moves. He also never really found his QB in multiple years. However, if he knows he can have a small say but no severe imapact in personnel moves, i wouldn't mind having him back, we still will have a roster turnover though. I can see him pushing for a QB of his own as well as he has never himself groomed a young QB to success.

    i don't agree with your DA assessment. the more minds he surrounds himself with, the better. esp someone as reputable and respected as gruden.

    Ya, Allen isn't cutting it. His decision making isn't the best.

    I really think we had a shot to tie the game yesterday and he blew it by going for the TD before kicking the field goal when he was in ship-shot range for Jano.

    So dumb.

    Now, the hire Gruden and fire Allen poll isn't so far-fetched.
