The Long Con: The Story of Jon Gruden

gruden1

Reports are circulating that Jon Gruden is looking/considering getting back into the coaching game. According to ProFootballTalk he is quoted as saying “I’ve met with several people — I won’t deny that, just about every year I talk about coming back to coach. I’m not in here every day at 4:30 or 4:00 in the morning watching pinball, you know? I’m preparing myself to come back. I am. Every day. I’m preparing to come back.”This doesnt really give clarity to what his future plans are or if he has been trying to get back in the league for years perhaps but hasnt able to attract the attention of any coaching staffs?. If i am a football owner or gm and I see these reports coming out I am immediately contacting J. Grud. All of this press/media shit he has done the last couple of years has literally just been building him up for a coaching comeback. His”Gruden Grinders” let everyone know that he has that eye for a player that will work hard and grind his way to a starting spot. Recruiting coordinator. Check. He does his QB camps where he literally spends hours going over game film of on-the-come-up qb’s and then has the opportunity to talk and critique these young up-and-coming quarterbacks. Basically, build a rapport with these quarterbacks and telling them how to be successful. QB coach/ QB recruiter. Check. I mean this man has already been a head coach for 2 teams and brought back a USper Bowl Championship so i think we can safely assume he has somewhat of an idea on how to run a successful team but these post-coaching activities still can serve as a great tool to assist an already intimdiating coach. Im just here giving a stay woke alert (h/t Caleb Pressley of Young & Happy of Barstool Sports) that everyone should look to Jon Gruden being the next hot commodity in the NFL. AND THEN THERES COLLEGE. This man can give Saban And Urban Meyer a run for their money with 2 years of control of his own team. Throw him down there in FAU and bump Lane to his assistant. Maybe its bound to end like his tenure at Bama but maybe, just maybe, they unite to form the ultimate coaching duo and go on to lead FAU to multiple national championships and being the recruiting powerhouse they could be. Maybe a trip back to the rising Oakland Raiders? I can only hope. Who knows?I sure as hell dont but im just ready for the future. -( . )

Aaron Rodgers hooks it up for an entire class and cancels their final

tweet

Source– Want to get out of your final exam? Ask Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That’s what a student named Peyton Meyer of Janesville, Iowa, did, and Rodgers obliged.  The class made a deal with its teacher, Laura Roberts, who is a Rodgers fan, that a retweet from the quarterback would cancel the final in a sports literature class made up of high school juniors and seniors in the Janesville Consolidated School District.

“We were talking about the news in sports like we do every day, and she mentioned that a student at another school tweeted at Kobe Bryant. Meyer told ESPN. “We asked if we could do the same, and we know she loves Aaron, so that’s why we picked him.”

A high school senior in Indiana got Bryant to retweet his request Thursday, getting his class out of a final exam.

Another great product of the internet and twitter is apparently the ability to effect kid’s grades in school. Pretty sure this is a bad image for the school and the education system there if a teacher is willing to cancel a final exam because an athlete retweeted a tweet but as a Green Bay fan and a mediocre student I appreciate the hell out of this lady. She is such a big Rodgers fan that she agreed to cancel a final exam if the class could get a retweet which is incredible. And Rodgers, being the beast that he is, decided to bless the kids and give a shoutout to cancel their final. Though this is just a bullshit high school Sports Literature course so I’m sure the final would have been mostly common sense and general knowledge anyways, pretty great on these kids that they dont even have to think about it though. Sidenote: Interesting precedent this sets as to where this stops. It’s up to the teachers (the smart ones) to put an end to this before people start expecting to get things that they want based on responses from social media. These kids snuck away with on an enamored fan/teacher but if this catches on I have no hope for America. -( . )
