Word...we can bring up the coaching continuity argument, but we know Gruden's pedigree as a head coach. I'm sick of the embarrassment...and I'm only a fan. I can only imagine how certain players feel who are young and haven't had much time to show that they can compete on a team that quits before it starts.

Sitting idly by watching this team suck worse than before with no end in sight should bring some action.
Hiring Gruden as HC would be HUGE.
