    If Gruden came in we can welcome Brad Johnson back in the NFL

    Exercise in futility. Munchak is going nowhere. As long as Bud's bottom line shows black, he is fine with him. Besides, I wonder if Bud's mind is even here. His grandson is likely doing the day to day running of the business and may very well be making team decisions also.

    Munch won't be around long if Bud (or whoever) feels like he is being "out coached". Munch doesn't have that SB appearence and some solid years of competing behind him Fisher had in the early 2000s. I'm sure Munch will get the rest of this year and maybe next year as well. One out is the fact we have a young QB.

    Nobody could continue to watch this manure we have on the field for very long and put up with it.

    No, no I couldn't. We will get sweep'd by the Texans and we won't even come close to a wild card spot without some major changes.


    On a side note, one positive to Gruden is that he loves Locker and thinks he can be a great QB. He would actually try to develop Jake.

    Not sure if Gruden is the guy. It's easy to forget how he went out with the Bucs. If I recall correctly, he only had one other playoff appearance after the superbowl win.

    A lot of that was probably due to Chris Simms but I think a lor of coaches would be considered good if they could use their bust of a QB as an excuse.

    Bud, (or the team I will say as I'm not sure of all these details) historically has given the coaches he "likes" around four years (sans Fisher). The ones he didn't got the boot in a year. The old man probably loves him some Munchak but team history outside of Fisher says if you don't perform as HC you get the boot pretty quickly..

    Spelling is a little off on some of those names, somebody in Texas must have made that list.

    I generally believe that going with an up-and-coming coordinator as a head coach is a better plan than going with a retread.
