    Great Article Scott!!! I think the best interview you have ever done! Even better, I felt I was right there listening to the two of you talk about football. You have a talent for this type of interviewing and I’m wondering if you are getting the attention you deserve from the national football media market?

    Fantastic article. Amongst the best I’ve ever read going back to the print magazine….maybe the best ever.

    Echoing the others, Scott … terrific interview. It helps to have a great subject, but the insight and respect you have for Jon Gruden also shows thru.

    In my opinion, Gruden was hands down the best thing that ever happened to the Bucs. He was treated badly by the baby Glazers and a small but noisy and really annoying faction of whiny Dungy fans. Our loss. I like Koetter now …. in part because he is like Gruden in the important ways.

    Great interview, Scott. I also like that Gruden is one of those player/coaches that still participates in the Bucs fraternity either after firing or retiring. It is kind of interesting how players under Gruden don’t really like him, but players under Koetter generally like him? Gruden is immensely knowledgeable about football and I think he is one of the best NFL tv commentators that I’ve seen. I personally hope that his stays in the booth, because in my book, he’s up there with Madden and the like. It’s always fun to have a national commentator slip in a story about the Bucs here and there on national TV.

    Sure was fun remembering the glory year of 2002.
    Was also amusing to listen to Gruden talk about his faults and others in regards to some of the terrible drafts we had during his stay here.
    Until Jason Licht arrived, they didn’t improve very much after Gruden left.
    I have to wonder about all of this talk about developing a young QB though, something Gruden has never had a reputation for doing. In fact, it has been quite the opposite.
    Enjoyed hearing Gruden rate his receivers as well.
    I always thought we gave up way to much for Johnson who was a legend in his own mind. I stopped watching ESPN’s pregame show when he showed up on the set. I always preferred McCardell and like Gruden, always thought he was the better receiver of the two.

    Great Read Scott, i enjoyed it very much. Gruden is always a good interview, and read. He is the one and only true ‘Gruru’ of football (for those that don’t know, that is a level above a guru, coined after the man himself).

    I like Koetter but I miss Gruden. It seems he was always stuck with an older QB that he helps get better. He deserves a chance to groom a first round pick. Great job Scott.

    Go Bucs!!!
