Gruden is a TV star, not a star coach
Jon Gruden is making the most anticipated NFL coaching in NFL history with the Raiders, and Colin doesn’t think it’s the guaranteed home run that the media and fans think he’s going to be.
Gruden did win a Super Bowl in Tampa, but did it with a stacked team and bottomed out after that. Add 10 years away from the sidelines in the broadcast booth, and an already cold relationship with star linebacker Khalil Mack, and it’s far from a guarantee that he’s going to step in and wreck the league. Colin thinks Gruden is a massive TV star, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to return to the NFL and be a star coach.
No way Cam’s a Top 10 QB
The Panthers finished the 2017 season at 11-5, but Cam Newton had another roller coaster season, completing under 60% of his passes for 3,300 yards, 22 TD’s and 16 picks. Colin has long been critical of Cam for his inconsistency and said he’s not a Top 10 NFL QB, and is hated his apologist fans for it. Colin argues it’s not hating if it’s accurate. A recent poll of league execs ranking NFL quarterbacks came to the same conclusion, ranking Newton outside the Top 10.
With the Panthers entering 2018 with a stacked roster, loaded defense, and offensive weapons everywhere, Colin thinks there is no way to make excuses for Cam if Carolina doesn’t win 10 or 11 games and consistently put up some points. If he has another roller coaster year, Colin thinks it might be time for Carolina ask themselves if he’s the long term answer.
