Gruden needs to stop talking like a TV analyst
Jon Gruden has been answering questions about the Khalil Mack trade since shipping him to the Bears. He’s also been facing a steady barrage of questions regarding the move since the Raider pass rush has been non-existent through two weeks.
Colin doesn’t think the questions should come as a surprise, but thinks Gruden’s tendency to talk from 10 years spent as an analyst is creating unnecessary problems for him as a coach. There’s no question Gruden is entertaining and a walking soundbite, but now that he’s running a team he should adopt the Bill Belichick approach and say next to nothing.
