    The Raiders have never been the same since he left.

    Not as overrated as Gase. Gase hasn’t accomplished anything without Manning.

    Not sure why getting a guy who has been away from coaching for 9 years is such a big hire.

    Even Texas A&M sees that as desperate.

    this maybe one of the dumbest contracts in nfl history.

    what exactly is the upside for the raiders in this? sure, it was going to take lots of money to pry gruden away from the booth to coach again, and maybe he can get carr back to the elite level he played at pre injury in 2016, but what happens if all fails after say 3 years, the raiders basically wouldn't be able to ever move on from this guy, because they would still need to pay him 70 million over 7 years.

    gruden made out like a bandit here, win or lose the guy is netting 100 million over 10 years. props to gruden for getting that much security, but i dont know what mark davis is doing here.

    im sure they could have offered him 3 years 30 million, and he would have still been making 10 a year, which correct me if i am wrong would be 2nd highest paid coach in the nfl currently, and if he does a good job, they would keep paying him, but if not, they would have been able to move on with no strings attached financially

    Big name for the move to Vegas. I like the hire. I like to believe Gruden has learned during his time in the booth.

    He's always been a coach who wears out his welcome fairly quick. Be nice to see what he does with with Derek Carr though, probably his best QB since Rich Gannon.

    Mark Davis can pay a coach 100 million but can't get a decent haircut? Watching that press conference, I wanted to cry from laughter.

    I hope he is just a rich guy with a weird hairdo and not something wrong with him.
