I heard this yesterday, not opposed to it, however it is tough for a coach to duplicate success at same team years later...just ask joe Gibbs.
Gruden has been one of my favorite coaches for the Raiders. It's a tough call because I don't think Alken has had enough time. It was unrealistic to ask a coack to inherit this mess and have success year one. That said, if they are seeing him standing by his o coordinator and d coordinator to a fault, then the decision is simple. But we have talent issues that need addressed for us to be successful. Back to Gruden, I like him as a coach..I just wonder if lightening can strike twice.

I agree that Allen hasn't had enough time. Gruden has been my favorite coach since Flores and I'm not opposed to him coming back, but I think we need coaching continuity worse than anything...The Tom Cable time frame was living proof of that.

starting with jon gruden in 2013 is, "continuity". we will rebuild. mckenzie and gruden will choose their players and coaches. cause gruden has new play scheme! ticket sales will sky rocket. and everyone will be happy!.
continuity with d allen and his crew? NOT very happy! i mean, unless d allen wins the next three after this bronco game? chances of that?
gruden will come expensive. and d allen is signed to a four year contract. likeliness of gruden joining RAIDERS again? fat chance! a lot of money lost there. but if he does join by chance? you get all your money back and a shhh load of happy fans.
gruden is no god of a coach and i know you are not apposed to bringing him back. and i know you would like continuity with d allen. but even you would be happy bringing him in 2013. so much for continuity!(lol). this gruden thing is probably just a rumor like every other one every year. but just by that rumor, you can see how the whole RAIDER NATION changes. they want to win now. few are in for the loooong haul. a lot are in it for the long haul even if it was with gruden. weigh it?
loooooooong haul with d allen?
or,
long haul with gruden?
