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

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


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.

Jay Gruden: Nobody Calls Me Jon

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 26, 2014 – 12:30 pm


If you’re pulling air from the atmosphere, you have or had parents or guardians. If you have siblings, you share those parents and guardians. If your parents and guardians are anything like my parents, you’ve been called the wrong name in stories and scoldings.

Apparently Jay Gruden has never had this issue.

In Part Three of an exclusive interview with Gruden at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, Larry Michael asked Gruden, “Does anyone ever call you Jon?”

“No, I’m much better looking than Jon,” Read more »

Jon Gruden Talks Jay Gruden On ESPN’s Mike & Mike: ‘It’s A Tremendous Opportunity, And I’m Happy For Him’

As part of his opening statement as Redskins head coach, Jay Gruden delivered a series of thank yous. He reserved a special thanks for his older brother Jon Gruden, the ESPN Monday Night Football broadcaster who hired Jay to be an assistant coach in Tampa Bay.

“I wouldn’t be sitting here today without learning everything that I know about football from him,” Jay Gruden said. “What a great brother. What a great person. What a great football coach.”

Jon Gruden appeared on ESPN’s Mike & Mike Wednesday morning and told the hosts his brother deserved the honor.  Read more »

Jay Gruden Thanks His Family, The Bengals And The Redskins

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 10, 2014 – 9:00 am


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 »

Jay Gruden Makes His Own Name

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 8, 2014 – 4:30 pm


He’s not the most famous man in the NFL to bear his surname, but his full name rests among greats of the game’s second cousin.

It’s flanked by Hunkie Cooper, George LaFrance, Sherdrick Bonner and Sylvester Bembery. Kurt Warner, too.

Arena Football League heroes have better names than any Ivy League lacrosse roster. Jay Gruden ranks No. 4 among them.

The Redskins confirmed Wednesday the team interviewed Gruden for the head coaching vacancy in Washington. Gruden has coached with the Bengals and the Buccaneers, but he won more championships in Tampa than  his older brother Jon Gruden would.

Darrel Young Takes Home ‘Gruden Grinder’

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 4, 2012 – 4:36 am

Hard work really doesn’t go unnoticed.

Just ask Washington Redskins fullback Darrel Young. Young has been one of the key pieces to the Redskins’ NFL-leading rushing attack this season, but doesn’t get the accolades or awards that quarterback Robert Griffin III or running back Alfred Morris have been getting.

No, instead, he just continues to plow through the next man ahead of him, opening up gaping holes in the opposing defenses.

For his efforts in Monday night’s 17-16 win over the New York Giants, however, Young finally got some recognition.

Griffin III, Gruden Meet Aboard MNF Bus

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 1, 2012 – 6:59 pm


One of the cooler parts of hosting a Monday Night Football game is all the network TV hoopla that goes with it.

Case in point: today, at Redskins Park, the big, black ESPN Monday Night Football tour bus was parked right outside the front doors (see above).

This bus was awesome, and rivals the Redskins’ 80th Anniversary tour bus. It’s filled with leather seating, restrooms, flat-screen TVs — everything you’d expect and more, which includes Jon Gruden.

The Super Bowl-winning coach and current ESPN analyst was on board today and filmed a segment with Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Of course, it wasn’t the first time Griffin III and Gruden have met to discuss the quarterback position on-air. In April — before the NFL Draft — Griffin III was a guest on ESPN’s “Gruden’s QB Camp.”

We’ll bring you the exclusive, behind-the-scenes video from Griffin III and Gruden’s on- and off-camera exchanges on Monday, but for now, here’s just a couple shots from on board the bus. The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders also stopped by and posed for some pictures:

More Griffin-Gruden Footage In The Works

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 6, 2012 – 5:20 pm

AP Image

Last Monday night, the world finally saw what Robert Griffin III looked like in an NFL interview room with a former NFL coach.  Jon Gruden isn’t the wild man that he was on the sidelines, but he still creates an entertaining environment with ESPN’s pre-draft Gruden QB Camp.

Gruden rolled tape on Griffin and asked him about a range of topics from his jovial game-face to his celebrations and socks.  It showed a charismatic young man that can handle the rigors of competition without being consumed by the business aspect.  It showed a guy who is cool as the other side of the pillow.

But it was curiously devoid of playbook discussion.  There was no chalk talk, no spider bananas, and no real criticisms of prior mistakes on the football field, which stood in stark contrast to the oft-banana’d Gruden interview with Andrew Luck.  So what’s the deal?

ESPN blogger Dan Graziano asked the same question of his coworkers, and discovered that this strategy was partially by design and partially how things presented themselves during the interview.  The good news is that Redskins fans will get to see the hard-hitting portion coming up soon.

Full Episode of RG3’s ‘Gruden QB Camp’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 3, 2012 – 1:34 pm

AP Image

One of the more interesting components of ESPN’s recent pre-Draft coverage is their QB Camp with former head coach Jon Gruden.  While it’s usually a soft-serve interview compared to private NFL meetings, there’s usually some criticism in there to see how the player will react when put on the spot.

Last Friday, the segment debuted on ESPN with Stanford’s Andrew Luck, the presumed top quarterback in the Draft.  He was given a lot of game tape and told to diagnose a play that he runs more than any other: the Spider Two-Y Banana.  Gruden’s bone to pick with him came on a play in which he didn’t run through the proper progression, and threw a pick-six.

The conversation on last night’s episode with Griffin was of an entirely different flavor, focusing on the charismatic personality of the Heisman winner.  I really like how Griffin has appeared at both his Pro Day and at the QB Camp in shirts that say “Determined” on the front, because it indicates how seriously he takes his craft.  But he’s also unafraid to have fun, and explains his awesome collection of themed-socks to Gruden:

“It’s something I started in high school, my sophomore year.  I wasn’t one that matched very well, and I just wanted to show people that I was comfortable with who I was.  I’m comfortable in my own skin.

“I’m gonna show you the socks–not in an arrogant way–but I don’t care what you think.  I’m comfortable with who I am, and you can make fun of me, but  as long as you respect me for the player that I am and the person that I am, then you can laugh at my socks.”

Truer words were never said.  And after a recent Tweet by Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay, could RG3 be more likely to fall to No. 2?

Only time will tell.

Check out the full video of RG3 conversation with Gruden, below: Read more »
