It was like old times, which is exactly what the Raiders wanted Tuesday. But I still want to be very detailed in the way we play offense, I still want to be very involved in how we move the football. Gruden cited Olson's experience coaching Raiders quarterback Derek Carr when he was the team's offensive coordinator in 2014. "This is something I feel strongly about". And yeah, it's a big freaking deal to Davis especially. "But, we have a lot of confidence and that's where you can feel fortunate to have Matt LaFleur to be able to kind of be there and he's acting as offensive coordinator and a lot of instances he's kind of coaching those guys up as well". His last memory of coaching in Oakland was the Tuck Rule game, and it's one that was clearly on his mind during his introductory press conference.

Well, you might say "but, he's won a Super Bowl!".

After listening to Gruden, anyone with a pulse felt the need to put on the pads and take the field for him.

"Once a Raider, always a Raider".

"I started to believe it because it was a different conversation than we'd had in the past", Davis said. Woodson asked as the crowd erupted in laughter. Quick side note, Karl Joseph and Marquette King were spotted around the facility as well doing off-season workouts. He made jokes, reconnected with reporters from his first tour in Oakland and engaged his former players in attendance. The Bay Area native had high praise for the new head coach of the Silver and Black. So, you bring in someone who is not famous for working well with others?

That was Gruden's final game in Oakland. Gruden also noted that he has never met Beast Mode.

If they do not respond to the mailer, and don't vote within the next four years, they are removed from the voter rolls. The case has taken on added importance because the parties have squared off over ballot access across the country.

"So I'm anxious to sit down with Marshawn and meet him".

Gruden was sacked from that post after a 9-7 season left his Bucs out of the playoffs in 2008.

Oakland Raiders new head coach Jon Gruden looks on during a news conference at Oakland Raiders headquarters on January 9, 2018 in Alameda, California. That was alcohol on the wound and the Raiders wouldn't recover until the 2016 season. Analysts, former players and fans raved all off-season about how the team would become a Super Bowl contender. "He's been a great coach to us". He'll be introduced by the team on Tuesday, making his long-awaited return to coaching after spending some time in the broadcast booth.

"My intentions are calling the plays, yes", Gruden said.

After all, the Raiders got two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and $8 million for letting Gruden leave on 2002.
