Jon Gruden: ‘How Can I Not Love The Redskins?’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 16, 2014 – 11:15 am

DSC_0489

Despite being an analyst for ESPN’s Monday Night Football and hosting his own television show each spring with NFL hopefuls, each telecasted to millions, it would have been understandable if Jon Gruden was nervous when he spoke to those in attendance at the 25th annual Burgundy and Gold Banquet. Joe Gibbs, three-time Super Bowl winner and founder and chairman of Youth For Tomorrow, accepted his Lifetime Achievement award just moments before he took center stage.

Big shoes to fill, right?

But he had no choke-ups. With former colleagues sitting just feet from the podium and his brother Jay, head coach of the Washington Redskins, looking on the former NFL coach was at ease.

And he let everyone know that he’s loves the burgundy and gold.

Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen and Gruden surprised the honorees Saturday night at the Pigskins Club 75th Anniversary Awards Dinner at Howard University.

Gruden and Allen each addressed the crowd before personally congratulating each member of the 2013 High School All-Metropolitan Football Team. Read more »

Walk With Jay Gruden Through His First Day At Redskins Park

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 10, 2014 – 12:35 pm

GrudenSnyder

“You ready?”

“I’m ready I guess.”

Jay Gruden was self-deprecating already.

The previous offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals stood in Daniel Snyder’s corner office at Redskins Park and answered the owner’s question. Three flat-screen televisions flashed football highlights.

Joey and Jack Gruden, the next line of a football family, shook hands with Snyder. J.J. Gruden was away at college. The boys wore ties to match their father, who chose a navy pinstriped suit, oxblood shoes and a white oxford shirt. His burgundy tie was adorned with white dots.

Three hours earlier he wore a gray Redskins sweatshirt and jeans to his first lunch at the facility’s dining hall, where they served chowder. When he was finished eating, Gruden walked out and stopped in an adjacent hallway. He paused to read the ‘60s section of a historic photo mural, eyeing pictures of Sam Huff and Bobby Mitchell.  

“One word: Lombardi,” was written in plus-size print.

Gruden would soon be introduced as the 29th head coach of the Washington Redskins.

Back in Snyder’s office, he joked with Jack about his grades. He made small talk with his new boss while Sherry Gruden and Tanya Snyder exchanged pleasantries.

Jay Gruden Thanks His Family, The Bengals And The Redskins

As new Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden and Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen demonstrated Thursday night, it’s never a bad move to begin with a thank you.

Some of the classiest moves in a classy day for Gruden were the thank yous he delivered to his blood relations,  football family and the center circle of that venn diagram.

Gruden began his statement with a shout out to wife Sherry, sons Joey, Jack and J.J. and mom Kathy, “the toughest Gruden of them all.” He thanked his dad Jim, whom he called a “football coach, a football man, a football person,” and, his brother Jim, who “taught me there’s things other than football that are important.”

The new coach thanked his older brother Jon, who gave him his first NFL job with the 2002 Super Bowl champion Buccaneers. Read more »

Watch Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden Introduce Himself to Washington

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 9, 2014 – 6:17 pm

Bruce Allen didn’t mind answering the phone in the middle of the night.

The Redskins Executive Vice President/General Manager said he received calls at “all hours of the evening” from coaches looking to praise the man sitting to his right inside the auditorium at Redskins Park.

Jay Gruden’s references were impeccable.

Allen introduced Gruden as the 29th head coach of the Washington Redskins in a Thursday night press conference. The executive detailed the franchise’s exhaustive search for it’s new leader and the qualities required of the man who would direct the football team.

Gruden had the fire in his belly Allen described 11 days earlier.

The team’s new teacher accepted a round of applause before thanking his family. Gruden thanked Marvin Lewis, Mike Brown and all the Cincinnati Bengals, then showed his appreciation for Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and Allen.

For about 45 minutes, he fielded questions about reviewing the assets he has in Washington, his impressions of quarterback Robert Griffin III and if he favors a 3-4 or a 4-3 defense. Gruden talked about his history with Allen, picking a coaching staff and much more.

Watch the full press conference below and follow the Redskins on Twitter and Instagram for breaking news as Gruden hires his staff.

General Manager Bruce Allen: ‘It Is My Job To Find The Next Head Coach’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 30, 2013 – 3:22 pm

Brucehand

Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen had a “painful” day he said was fitting for a “painful” season.

Allen met with Owner Daniel Snyder and Mike Shanahan at 9 a.m. Monday morning to relieve Shanahan of his duties to the franchise. The GM met with assistant coaches throughout the day, then addressed the media four hours after the dismissed coach made a statement.

Allen stressed that that every member of the organization had a part in a 3-13 season. He spoke to the media about how the franchise has begun its search for a new head coach, what the criteria for that position will be and what the club will learn from a regular season full of distractions.

He talked about how the world of sports lends itself to instant evaluation, how to create stability and how NFL teams can complete quick turnarounds.

Fans Rally Around Redskins In Dallas!

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 13, 2013 – 12:58 am

DSC_0009

Outside of the greater DMV area, one of the strongest hotbeds of Washington Redskins support has always come from deep in the heart of Texas.

That may come as a surprise to fans outside of the Lonestar State–what with the Dallas Cowboys and all–but the Burgundy and Gold Fan Club of Dallas, Texas has a great following and throws some of the best Redskins rallies worth looking forward to every year.

This year’s event was scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., but the Redskins setup team (including your’s truly) was greeted at the door by dozens of fans when they arrived at quarter to 5. By 5:15 there was a steady stream of fans through the free T-shirt line, and by 5:30 it was downright crowded in the bar area.

By the time the Redskins celebrities arrived at 6 p.m., the fans had already maxed out capacity of the restaurant and the 400 free “Live It” T-shirts at the door were long-gone. Gazing outside, there was a line of Redskins fans waiting patiently on the sidewalk to get into the bar.

That’s when the real fun began, as Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, accompanied by his wife Tanya Snyder, came to the party, joined by general manager Bruce Allen, former players Chris Cooley and Rick ‘Doc’ Walker, and voice of the Redskins, Larry Michael.

A good time was had by all, and here’s a social recap of the night’s festivities:
