The person who started this thread, and every other person who says "Gruden's an offense genius yeah right." Obviously it bothers them that somebody called Gruden an offensive genius. So they must have heard somebody call him that, right? "The media"? People? They? Who is the they in "They say Gruden is an offensive genius"? This is still an issue so somebody must have heard it from somebody. We deserve to know who it is.

Who said Gruden was an offensive genius? Its a fair question.
Gruden was a good coach, is a good coach and always will be a good coach. You need the horses.
RE: Bradentonian: OK one of them says "Has been known as something of a genius" while not directly calling him one. The 1998 guy just said he should be Coach of the Year, but didn't mention the word "genius".Â So good detective work and you are getting warm, but its not quite the evidence I was looking for.Â Maybe if you look back a little further than 1998?
Oaklandâ€™s Jon Gruden deserves to be Coach of the Year. The baby-faced head coach came over from Philadelphia with a reputation as an offensive genius
It starts at the top, where hard-working head coach Bill Callahan replaces the egocentric Jon Gruden. Gruden was an offensive genius in Oakland. He was intense, dedicated and had a strong desire to win a Super Bowl, but word out of Oakland is that many Raiders were growing tired of Grudenâ€™s rah-rah approach.
DON'T LET JON GRUDEN'S boyish looks deceive you. Despite being the youngest head coach in the NFL at 38, he is considered one of the best in the business, an offensive genius who has a terrific rapport with his players.
I will agree with both sides here. Gruden did a great job during the SB run, and Gruden at times has done a really good job as a coach here. Unfortunately, the team that he has built is not good right now, and doesn't look like it is getting any better. The offense is terrible. The offense wasn't that good last year, either. It was still the defense that carried this team all the way through the season, and the defense is still better than the offense despite being at the absolute waning moments of its existance together.Gruden did a good job in the past, but these last few years have been heartache (besides 2005). I think he will be here next year, but he has got to produce. I am just tired of all the hate on both sides. You can criticize but you don't need to hate.
