Interesting to see all the folks willing to stick a fork in Gruden after one regular season game with his new team, when many around here were claiming that there was no way you could decide a coach should be shown the door after two seasons due to the possible coaching carousel.  It's not quite hypocrisy, but we're definitely in that zip code.....

 

Epic post!!!  My thoughts over the last 20 years, but was never able to articulate it so clearly.

NOTE:  Stopped the quote early so everyone doesn't have to scroll down to see my comment, which is obviously the best this forum has ever seen

Gruden lost his opener, also the home opener, in 2002 against the Saints.  Although they mounted a brave comeback to send the game into OT but the pitchforks were out and being sharpened. Then, 12-4, offense came alive in the second half and for the playoffs. 

Thats not going to happen in Oakland with their current roster.

Most consistent team ever in 2002. 3-1 during every 4 game stretch. 6-2 at home 6-2 on the  road. We had a bad 4 year consistency by starting 3-4 and 4-4  from 1998-2001 although we did make the playoffs 3 of the 4 years.
