‘I gotta get the f–k outta here’: Jon Gruden’s Raiders are lost
By Jaclyn Hendricks
November 12, 2018 | 2:37pm



The 2018 Raiders are what nightmares are made of.

Following Oakland’s fifth straight loss Sunday, which dropped it to 1-8 on an already disastrous season, the $100 million coach said the current state of affairs may keep much of the team’s personnel up at night.

“This will be a year that a lot of us will never forget,” Gruden said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, after falling 20-6 to the Chargers. “It’s painful. It’s hard. It will be hard to sleep again, hard to get up in the morning.”

In a year marred by high-profile trades and internal discord, including questions surrounding quarterback Derek Carr’s leadership, older players have openly spoken about jumping ship.

“One Raiders veteran to another, on his way out of the locker room past three reporters, including myself: ‘I gotta get the f–k outta here,'” tweeted Oakland beat writer Matt Schneidman on Sunday.

One already escaped just before Halloween, when 32-year-old cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie abruptly retired.

Ever the optimist, Gruden believes hitting rock bottom now will better the Raiders later.

“This will be the foundation this organization leans on: mental toughness, physical toughness. I know it sounds corny to some people, but that’s the grit and toughness this organization was built on, and that is what we’ll continue to strive for,” he said.

Gruden also knows that the only place Oakland can go — besides Las Vegas in two years — is up.

“We’re going to keep working hard, keep preparing as hard as we can, keep developing the players that are here, and hopefully that translates into some wins,” Gruden said.

“We have seven weeks to spend with these players. The future is something we’ll talk about later. Right now, it is hard to lose, but we are seeing some progress with our young players and some of these veteran guys are giving us everything they have.”

The Raiders will have a chance to get win No. 2 Sunday against the 2-7 Cardinals.

If you talk about the future later, it might be the present or the past.

The size of the mudhole we are going to stomp in that team in three weeks is going to be biblical.

We are going to detonate the Coliseum on our way out of there for the last time.

I firmly believe Mahomes will break the single game TD record against them.

None of these players will be in Vegas anyways. That franchise could care less right now. It's an intentional tank so transparent it's funny. Not a "We're trying hard but failing" situation. Gruden putting them in positions to lose.. on purpose. That's why he looks like he has to hold back laughing at the media grilling him on dumb shit moves.

I doubt it. You set TD records in shoot outs. You think Mahomes is still going to be dropping back to pass if KC is up 35-3? I doubt it. It will be a steady diet of Spencer Ware.

For all intensive purposes, everybody is going to look for the escape goat. It’s a doggy dog world.:)

So a reporter hears someone say that to someone else and makes the assumption that player wants off the team. Could be that he needed to hurry home to his hot wife who texted him a pic of what she was (not) wearing. Could be any number of things so I would not take this too seriously.

Unless it was Jordy talking about retiring! :)

Thats what it looks like. Mack, Cooper traded. A bunch of injuries like Lynch done for the year. Irvin released. A lot of backups as starters. Reminds me of the Colts suck for Luck.

I agree, but Swing passes to the the flat can still go yard. :D

Nah, he'll get close. My money is on Henne to break the record when he comes in after half up 42-0.

As it should be. No reason to leave anyone open to cheap shots when the rout has been established.
