    didn't he just sign an extension with ESPN? I actually liked him there. He brought knowledge and personality to the booth. Much better than Kornhole.

    If true I'm really surprised, it's hard to see anyone going back to the schedule NFL coaches work when they are making pretty much the same money to do what Gruden does. He must really really really love coaching to make that move.

    I think its a no brainer that Gruden is headed back to either Tampa Bay or maybe San Diego

    Both teams have announced that they will not be retaining their current head coach next year and it seems very coincidental that all of a sudden Gruden is coming back to coach.....its likely one of these teams and a return to Tampa Bay where Gruden took the Bucs to thier only Super Bowl is my expectation.

    Really weak on Tampa's part, Morris deserves another year.

    Here's another possible explanation. . . .

    16 Danny Amendola WR (IR)
    63 Jacob Bell G (IR)
    89 Mark Clayton WR (IR)
    86 Michael Hoomanawanui TE (IR)
    49 Brit Miller FB (IR)
    18 Austin Pettis WR (Suspended)
    76 Rodger Saffold T (IR)
    87 Greg Salas WR (IR)
    77 Jason Smith OT (IR)

    Yay!!!! Never having to listen to him again will be so much more informative than listening to him has been.

    Seems to me that besides one great year in Tampa Bay, coaching has not been the successful for him. I expect no change.

    No, but it could be said they are both comedians, though I actually do think that Gruden is funnier than Miller.

    3 starting O line guys and both starting WR's. So the Rams QB's have no one to throw to and no one to protect them.

    Very scary, not sure if we can blame McDaniels for that.

    The real question is if the Rams finish with the 1st overall pick, what do they do?

    I say trade it to Washington for a boatload of draft picks and use Washington;s first this year to get OT Kahlil from USC. Move Stafford to OG, where he is better suited.

    I have no idea what he makes as an analyst, but I would bet my house that it is significantly less than he could get as a head coach somewhere.

    Now that the Gruden rumor has been canned, can we start one that Mike Tirico is retiring to the Home of the Terminally Bland?

    IMHO Tirico adds absolutely nothing to the broadcast, except some feeble attempts at faking excitement.

    Can't ESPN find ANYONE better than Tirico to put on MNF? :mad:

    I don't know about Tirico but take that POS announcer Dan Dierdorf and kick his ass away from announcing......he is the WORST in history.
