Jon Gruden: All (The Raiders) have to do is ask


So, I hear that former Raiders coach (and current ESPN Monday Night Football rockstar) Jon Gruden was back in Oakland yesterday to host a reunion for players and staff from his era (1998-2001) at Ricky's Sports Bar.

Supposedly Ricky himself asked Jon if he'd ever consider coaching the Raiders again and Gruden replied "all they have to do is ask." You heard it here first: if Al Davis brings Chucky back, I will have a heart attack. I don't think it'll ever happen due to the largess of Davis' ego against the popularity of the snarling Chucky-look-a-like Gruden.

Here's to a silver & black fantasy: a second time around would be sooooo sweet.

Dream about that, true believers.
