It’s almost a weekend off for Patriots fans, with New England taking on the Houston Texans on Monday night, it’s a weekend to score points with your significant other by offering to do something on Sunday afternoon.
Unless you have the Red Zone channel, that is.
On CSNNE’s Quick Slants last night Tom E Curran had former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson on as a guest from Houston, where he has been working for CBS Houston. I’m really glad to say that Johnson looked and sounded great. He said that he feels great, he works out regularly, eats right, been taking care of himself. He still looks like he could suit up and stuff the run.
It’s good because he was a guy I think we all worried about, at least I did, especially since I hadn’t seen or heard him locally for a bit, and we know about his battles with the effect of concussions. It was great to be pleasantly surprised. Hopefully he continues to do well. On another note about that show, Mary Paoletti was, in the words of a BSMW reader,...

At least eight teams come to mind that could use a new head coach next year, and you can bet they will all roll out the red carpet to try and persuade current Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden. Gruden being the reputable, tough, Super Bowl winning coach he is, will make his choice on his own terms, when the right team approaches him.As an offensive minded coach, one can only...
The Oakland Raiders on Wednesday publicly dismissed a report that former Raiders coach and current ESPN analyst Jon Gruden was being discussed as a possible replacement for first-year head coach Dennis Allen.
"There are two people on this planet that have the ability to make talks happen between Jon Gruden and the Raiders, with regard to him allegedly taking over the football...
There was reported a crazy rumor recently that Monday Night Football analyst and former Super Bowl winning NFL Head Coach Jon Gruden was offered the University of Tennessee job, along with a Cleveland Browns' ownership stake. All parties involved promptly disputed the report, with Gruden saying "I'm just excited about Monday Night Football. I like what I'm doing...
The Oakland Raiders are pretty furious about the rumor that they were trying to bring back Jon Gruden as their head coach for next season.
The Raiders ended up releasing a statement so they could voice their frustrations.
An e-mail from Raiders director media relations Zak Gilbert on the “rumor” that Jon Gruden could be rejoining the Raiders . . .
Members of the media: There...
The Oakland Raiders on Wednesday strongly denied a report that club was negotiating to bring former coach Jon Gruden back to the club. The report, broke by Pro Football Weekly editor Hub Arkush on Tuesday, said that Gruden was discussing on the same day that current coach Dennis Allen was attending the funeral of this father. "... There are two people on this planet that...
The Tennessee Volunteers’ search for a football coach continues. Athletic director Dave Hart has already had his wish list decimated. Jon Gruden...
Okay, for just a moment imagine that Jon Gruden rejoining the Raiders isn't the worst idea for both sides of the discussion. Pretend that the small market Raiders wouldn't have to eat the contracts of Reggie McKenzie and Head Coach Dennis Allen. Pretend that Gruden didn't botch the only job in which he was in [...]

According to PFW's Hub Arkush, the Raiders are in talks with Gruden to see if he has interest in returning to Oakland. As Raiders head coach from 1998-01, he posted a 38-26 regular-season record, after moving to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a trade in '02, he led the Bucs to a victory over the team he helped build in Oakland in Super Bowl XXXVII.
Jon Gruden is rumored to...
Maybe the term "settles" is a little harsh but when your other candidates were Jon Gruden, Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong, it fits. By settling, it doesn't necessarily mean that this is a bad hire. In fact, I like this hire more than the last two that the Vols have made. Of course, the last two hires were Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley so I'm not sure that's saying...
If the rumors are true that Jon Gruden wants back in Oakland, perhaps he’s crazier than we thought.
You would be hard pressed to find a worse situation for the former Raiders and Buccaneers head coach to make his comeback.
Surely Gruden has fond memories of his four years in Oakland. And he certainly has the fans’ support, but despite the death of Al Davis, the Raiders are still...
The saga to find the replacement for Derek Dooley continues as Tennessee is now reportedly setting their lowered expectations on Cincinnati head football coach Butch Jones to be the Vols' new HC. This after Jon Gruden, Mike Gundy, and Charlie Strong turned the school down.
Jones has already been headhunted by both Purdue and Colorado, with no success. It seems there might...
Danny & Dano, the hosts of Sonoma County Sports Fans radio show and podcast were kind enough to invite me back again this week to talk Raiders. We discussed a number of different topics including the possibility of Jon Gruden coming back to coach the Silver & Black, how much blame Carson Palmer bears for the offenses struggles and what the Raiders should do, at a broad...
He may not have been their first option or even among their Top 5, but the University of Tennessee made the right choice when they hired Cincinnati Bearcats coach Butch Jones as the 23rd head coach in the history of Tennessee football.
When Derek Dooley was fired on November 18th, immediate speculation surrounded Monday Night Football host Jon Gruden as the favorite replacement....
