It's the same with alcohol. Do your best to keep it away and do your best to have them make smart decisions when they do it anyway.

This... I never let my daughter know I smoked weed... did my best to keep her away from it and booze as long as possible. She’s an adult now and makes her own decisions (mostly good) but there’s no way I was going to contribute to bad ones early on... totally irresponsible as a parent IMHO

And yes..l.the negative reaction to Gruden has been totally overblown. Team is greatly improved on both sides of the ball... and we haven’t even used up the the draft picks we stole from the Bears yet :wink:

Grubeman ...... good?
Eventually we’ll have nothing but fullbacks, blocking TEs, mid round DLinemen and slow white guys at WR. We should be the SB faves at that point.

Late to the party. Gruden deserves COY consideration if this team finishes above .500 - they were projected 4-12 in Vegas. He's already instilled a new culture down there, 2 of his 3 1st rounders look like the real deal, renfrow is looking like he'll develop into a quality player...

What's not to like? Give credit where credit is due...Chucky is exceeding expectations

The haters have backed off a bit since the season started...it was crazy in the off season. People thought it was over once Mack was traded along with Cooper.

Raiders will be 7-4 (if they win their next 2 games vs Bengals, Jets) heading into a big division matchup vs KC.

Imagine awarding CotY to a 9-7 coach.

I said consideration, not a unanimous win. He's still behind Shanahan and Lafleur, IMO...but well ahead of coaches like Belicheck and Payton -- teams that are posting records they were expected to post anyway

I still wouldn't put him ahead of those guys unless the main criteria is irony.
