    Getty Derek Carr with Jon Gruden. It hasn’t taken long for the Las Vegas Raiders to move on from the Jon Gruden regime. The head coach was supposed to be with the team for a long time and likely would be if he hadn’t resigned after offensive emails sent from him were leaked to the media. The team decided to hire Josh McDaniels to replace Gruden, which was met with pushback at first. However, after seeing how McDaniels has operated in the early days as head coach, opinions are quite high. During Gruden’s tenure, there was a lot of uncertainty at the quarterback position. Derek Carr was essentially playing on a year-to-year basis in recent seasons. One of the first things McDaniels did when he got hired was make it clear that Carr is the starting quarterback going forward. He also put his money where his mouth is by getting the quarterback a three-year contract extension. While Carr didn’t directly call out Gruden for being non-committal, he was actually pleasantly surprised that the new regime of McDaniels and...
    Getty Mike Zimmer (not pictured) openly criticized Kirk Cousins in his final days with the Vikings. Former Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer’s distaste for quarterback Kirk Cousins has been well-documented contrary to the lip service he offered the veteran quarterback while head coach. However, the most recent leak of Zimmer’s issues with Cousins by The Athletic’s Chad Graff highlights one of the most fundamental arguments against Cousins being an elite passer in the league. The latest Vikings news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Vikings newsletter here! Join Heavy on Vikings! ‘He Didn’t Elevate His Teammates’In a February 28 article, Graff took inventory of Cousins’ relationships with his head coaches over the years in anticipation that the Vikings keeping Cousins would be a bet that newly hired head coach Kevin O’Connell can succeed where others have failed. Graff reported that Zimmer “complained openly in coaching meetings about Cousins, and some of Zimmer’s top lieutenants echoed the sentiment. Zimmer didn’t feel the quarterback made enough ‘winning plays,’ that he didn’t take the necessary shots to help lead...

One of his former players in Tampa Bay says that, privately, Gruden has expressed remorse. “I had the opportunity during the bye week, I reached out, and was surprised he actually called me back, and had a good conversation,” 49ers G.M. John Lynch said Friday on KNBR, via 49ersWebZone.com. “He feels a tremendous amount of remorse, as he should. And that’s what you do; you reach out to people and say, ‘Hey, I’m thinking and praying for you.’ And I simply said, ‘Hey, when you’re ready, give me a call,’ and he did. . . . We shared some thoughts — I’ll leave that private — but he is extremely remorseful and understands he’s got to make up for that however he...
    15 Adorable Products That Will Make Great Baby Gifts Rude Money Habits You Need To Break Now © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Raiders coach Jon Gruden abruptly resigned on Monday night, with no final address or farewell to the team. So some members of the team went to see Gruden. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that some players went to Gruden’s house to save goodbye to him. Glazer didn’t name names; it would be very interesting to know who did and who didn’t go. Regardless, Gruden is now gone. And the Raiders move foward with an interim coach for the next 12 games. As mentioned yesterday, it’s unclear why this matter didn’t come to a head before or after the season. By bubbling up during the season, the Raiders were required to abruptly change coaches, necessarily undermining the integrity of the campaign.

    SANTA CLARA — What was Kyle Shanahan thinking? The 49ers beat the Las Vegas Raiders 34-10 Sunday at Levi’s Stadium, yet Shanahan got out-coached by Jon Gruden. It’s a declaration that sounds ridiculous on its face, but hear me out. There is only one thing that matters in the last game of the exhibition season in terms of risk-reward. Shanahan, a year after injuries ruined the 49ers’ season, risked injury to players he can’t afford to lose if the 49ers hope to make a run at the Super Bowl. Gruden left anyone that mattered at home. Didn’t even bring them on the short flight from Las Vegas to San Jose to stand on the sidelines and pretend that they cared. Derek Carr, Darren Waller, Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow, Brian Edwards, Josh Jacobs and their entire offensive line. Yannick Ygakoue, Maxx Crosby, Cory Littleton, Casey Hayward Jr., Trayvon Mullen, Tre’von Moehrig and Jonathan Abram were among those excused on defense. Nathan Peterman went wire to wire in the preseason at quarterback, taking every snap because Gruden didn’t...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders HC Jon Gruden. During Jon Gruden‘s absence from the NFL, he became a star analyst at ESPN. His Monday Night Football commentary was very popular as was his Quarterback Camp show. He was also the company’s highest-paid personality for a time before the Las Vegas Raiders paid him big money to coach the team. A reason Gruden may have decided to ditch ESPN for another NFL head coaching gig was the person they assigned to be his partner during Monday Night Football games after Mike Tirico departed. Sean McDonough replaced Tirico and he simply didn’t work well with Gruden. He’s been honest about that in the past. Recently, he decided to get more candid about the situation and did a deep dive on why things didn’t work with the Super Bowl-winning coach. “I think, to be totally candid, Jon Gruden enjoyed the X-and-O part of it,” McDonough said on the SI Media Podcast with Jimmy Traina. “He loved the telestrator. He told me when I first got the job, ‘I don’t like stories.’ So...
    More On: espn Maria Taylor breaks silence on Rachel Nichols video drama Maria Taylor really enjoyed introducing Rachel Nichols’ replacement The part of Rachel Nichols-Maria Taylor ESPN feud that’s angering NBA commissioner The brutal truth about ESPN-Rachel Nichols-Maria Taylor drama Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden lasted just two seasons alongside one another as ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast team, and McDonough wishes the tenure would have gone differently.  “It wasn’t great, but I’m glad I got the chance to do it,” McDonough said on the “SI Media Podcast” with Jimmy Traina. “Do I think we were bad? No, I thought it was fine. But it could’ve been great in my opinion, and it wasn’t.”  McDonough joined Gruden in the MNF booth ahead of the 2016 season, replacing Mike Tirico, who left the network for NBC. He conceded that the dynamics between him and Gruden were often “awkward.”  “You’re standing there next to somebody wondering, ‘If I ask him a question about this, is he gonna answer it or is he gonna be annoyed that I asked him?’” McDonough said....
    Scarlett Johansson Says Daughter Rose, 6, Loves to Follow Her Around: She Shadows Me Stocks tumble as Delta variant fears grip Wall Street © Provided by Sports Illustrated The ESPN personality explains ‘awkward’ partnership with Jon Gruden 1. There isn’t a more versatile play-by-play caller working today than Sean McDonough, who was just named the lead play-by-play announcer for ESPN’s NHL coverage, which begins next season. McDonough also has one of the most impressive résumés in sports broadcasting. On that lengthy résumé is a two-year stint calling Monday Night Football with Jon Gruden. Things did not go well for the duo, and ESPN quickly made a change–ironically, to a booth featuring Joe Tessitore, Jason Witten and Booger McFarland on a crane, which was received as poorly as any NFL crew I can remember. McDonough appeared on this week’s SI Media Podcast, and I asked him why he thought his partnership with Gruden and the gig with Monday Night Football didn’t work out. “When I was hired, part of what I was instructed to do was to try to make it...
    ‘Without Remorse’ and the Empathy of Michael B. Jordan Exclusive: Biden set to ban most travel to U.S. from India to limit COVID-19 spread A few years ago, many thought Texas safety Caden Sterns could have been off the board by now. Following a Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year performance in 2018, Sterns — a highly touted, five-star prospect rated ahead of fellow Texan Jaylen Waddle coming out of high school — looked to be a future first-round pick. That season, he intercepted four passes, broke up another eight, blocked a field goal and made three tackles for loss as a true freshman. The next two seasons featured some bumps in the road. Sterns declared early (to the surprise of some) but wasn’t selected in Round 1 of the 2021 NFL draft. But he remains hopeful and excited for what lies ahead. “I can tell I am ready,” Sterns told Yahoo Sports this week. “It’s something I have seen in myself. I’ve shown what type of player I can be. I wish I could have shown it...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs. The Las Vegas Raiders decided to pull off a big surprise just before the season when they decided to trade Lynn Bowden Jr. to the Miami Dolphins. The rookie third-round pick was supposed to be an offensive weapon for the team but apparently, they couldn’t figure out how to use him. The Raiders got a chance to see him play in person when they faced the Dolphins on Saturday. He didn’t have a big revenge game but his team did win. Though they were only teammates for a brief time, Raiders first-round pick Henry Ruggs has formed a strong bond with Bowden. He recently sent a message to his former teammate. GANG 4L???????????? Happy for u brudda???? @LynnBowden_1 pic.twitter.com/S9tXzd1jHH — HJR III™???? (@__RUGGS) December 29, 2020 Bowden sent a message back in return. It’s unfortunate that the two men didn’t get to play together. With Bowden’s recent emergence as a solid receiver for Miami, it’s looking like the Raiders made a bad call.

    Getty Jon Gruden & Derek Carr of the Las Vegas Raiders. Once again, the Las Vegas Raiders have pulled off an upset. The bad weather in Cleveland was the talk of the week and it’s no secret that quarterback Derek Carr hasn’t had his best games when it’s cold out. While he didn’t light up the stat sheet, Carr played a solid game en route to a win over a good Browns team. A surprising twist is that Carr made a number of plays with his legs. Much has been made about he doesn’t like to run but he had some big plays on the ground. The Raiders will be happy to see their quarterback making plays but they didn’t love seeing him not slide on a couple of plays. Head coach Jon Gruden put Carr on blast for not sliding a couple of times. “I say, are you out of your mind?” Gruden said of Carr not sliding on some plays after the game. “Don’t get carried away but he’s a great competitor. I’m just proud he’s...
    Calif. wildfires: 60K ordered to evacuate in Irvine This Trader Joe’s Seafood Is Being Recalled in 19 States Jon Gruden reportedly livid that Bucs-Raiders wasnt rescheduled due to COVID-19 Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is reportedly pretty peeved that the game between his team and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was allowed to happen on Sunday. According to Mike Florio of ProFootball Talk, Gruden is “livid” that the game wasn’t postponed and rescheduled due to COVID-19 issues. The Raiders spent most of last week practicing without their five starting offensive linemen after Trent Brown was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and Rodney Hudson, Gabe Jackson, Denzelle Good and Kolton Miller followed after contact tracing revealed they had been in close contact with Brown and needed to enter quarantine. Florio reported that Gruden believes the game should have been postponed so his lineman could have more time to prepare.Dream on, JonGruden may be “livid,” but that may just be his persecution complex acting up. The NFL didn’t treat the Raiders differently than any other team. Teams like the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans...
    Getty Derek Carr & Jon Gruden of the Las Vegas Raiders. It shouldn’t have been a shock for a lot of however Derek Carr had a fantastic recreation for the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. He didn’t put up insane numbers however he was near good on the day. A lot has been made about how Carr and Jon Gruden apparently don’t get alongside however the two appear simply nice. There are even those that have recommended that Marcus Mariota is being groomed to take the beginning job sooner or later. Properly, Gruden made it fairly clear that isn’t going to occur. He, unprompted, went out of his solution to reward the quarterback. “You gotta adjustments your snap depend, you gotta change your audibles, you gotta change your hand alerts however we’re not altering quarterbacks,” Gruden stated Monday. “Derek performed nice. Derek Carr performed a brilliant recreation [Sunday]. No sacks, no interceptions, 34 factors … did a fantastic job throwing the ball precisely … made some nice performs for us.” Gruden has...
    Getty Derek Carr & Jon Gruden of the Las Vegas Raiders. It shouldn’t have been a surprise for many but Derek Carr had a great game for the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. He didn’t put up insane numbers but he was close to perfect on the day. Much has been made about how Carr and Jon Gruden apparently don’t get along but the two seem just fine. There are even those who have suggested that Marcus Mariota is being groomed to take the starting job at some point. Well, Gruden made it pretty clear that isn’t going to happen.
