Why do you think he got by with shitty QBs the whole time?
If we bring in Chucky, we are gonna do one of two things:
1) Draft Barkley at first overall
2) Draft a defensive player first overall and a QB in the second or third.
The guy passed on Aaron Rodgers for Cadillac Williams in 2005.
Think about that for a second.
With Cohwer, at least we have a shot at taking Geno.
Here's a real interesting article:
You are right. But a few key things to keep in mind. Remember that Chan Gailey ran a smash mouth offense, then adjusted to the spread for the Chiefs. Shanahan was a WCO guy but developed more of a shotgun offense in Washington to suit RGIII. Gruden's been out of the game for a while and he's smart enough to see from the booth what's going on. In fact, from what I remember, he was doing heavy research for years on the spread offense because he thought it was intriguing.
I don't know if I'd want Gruden. But he's an intriguing hire because I have a feeling he's going to develop an offense nobody's expecting. And I bet it won't be west coast.
