It's hard to imagine too many other rants this season surpassing the greatness of the one Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden dropped in an episode of HBO's Hard Knocks show on Wednesday.Gruden was clearly not happy at the way his offense practiced at a local high school and went on an epic rant to voice his displeasure.From Cincinnati.com:“Some of the (bleep) that happened yesterday you wouldn’t expect on the first day of rookie OTAs. We had three dropped snaps and a couple things that were my fault. That is Mickey Mouse (bleep) football right there and we all had our hand in it. Everybody had their hand in it and it can’t happen for us to be as good as we want to be. Ever.“I can handle a drop every now and then. I can handle a guy beating you with a good pass rush move. I can handle certain things, but I can’t handle mental (bleep) time and time again.“Andy’s been a quarterback here for three (bleep) years and hasn’t had one dropped snap. Not one. We had three in one day! Concentration, poise. You’ve got to have it every snap in this game otherwise you’re going to get your ass beat time and time again, you’re going to be 18th ranked in offense, you’re going to be 9-7 or 8-8 and you’re going to be (bleep) watching the playoffs at home every year.“Yesterday we took a major step backwards and now today we’ve got to take two steps forward. You have to have great concentration, great attention to detail not just on Sundays. On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. If you want to muddle around at .500 (bleep) then come out here and (bleep) around and (bleep) up. But if you want to be great, you’ve got to set your standards high and you’ve got to come out and go at it every (bleep) day.”Gruden also added, "just because we're on a high school field doesn't mean we have to practice like high school."The Bengals are set to open their season Sept. 8 in Chicago to take on the Bears. For their sake, let's hope they don't mishandle any snaps, or Gruden may just blow up, again.Via For the Win
