    Nobody knows these college QBs as well as Gruden. He could easily say which one he'd want us to draft and he'd make him a star. Oh and players love Gruden, so free agents might actually want to come play here. I remember back in the early 2000s everyone wanted to be a Raider and that's why Jerry Rice came here, Romo, Rod Woodson, etc.

    This makes me excited. Gruden would be an instant hall of famer if he cameback and brought this franchise back to greatness after what we've been through this last decade.

    I'm sorry but this just ain't happening. I'm not saying I don't want it to happen it's just that good thing rarely ever happen to these Raiders. Don't get your hopes up too much.

    You know that feeling teenage girls get and how they act when they see Justin beiber in person? That is how I will be IF Gruden comes back

    Oh Jesus please! ANYONE but the coaches we have now. Even if we were still losing it's all we could hope for... To see that pissed off Chucky face on the sidelines, knowing that passive sh^t ain't going to fly and they're going to pay for that come Tuesday . Come back Jon !!

    What authority does Allen have? He's just a sh!tty rookie coach that looks worse than a rookie.

    Mark just called DA in Texas. Told him to stay as long as he wants. Gruden's watching film of the Denver defense on a flight to Oakland. Seriously. If you play the Papa segment from today on 95.7 in reverse, you can hear it yourself.

    I believe Greg Papa. (that is two, not three, P's btw).

    I don't believe Al called Gruden, but I do know Al knew how to work the media in a clumsy way. Herrera was too obvious, but run it through Papa, and it smells better.

    Papa has a place in heaven because he did not pass it along until now..............important point.
