Gruden spent nine seasons as the lead analyst on
The teams coached by brothers Jon and Jay Gruden were both eligible to be drafted to serve as this year’s subject of . Before the Raiders received the short straw , Jay jokingly tried to nudge the obligation toward Jon’s team. And for good reason. While serving as the offensive coordinator in Cincinnati, Jay Gruden witnessed the extra burden of on a head coach.“Coach [Marvin] Lewis handled all of the editing and all that stuff,” Jay Gruden told reporters on Monday. “I think it’s probably a lot on the plate for a head coach to be able to handle that because you don’t want to put anything out there that could be a negative light on [what] a player said in a coaching staff meeting or whatever. So, you’ve got to actually make sure you go through and watch the edits, what’s going to be out there. I think it’ll be a great show. I’m sure Jon will handle that, but it’s not easy for them to, you know, handle all that stuff.”So apart from the distraction that comes from having the NFL Films cameras and microphones constantly present, the head coach — who is primarily focused on getting his team ready for Week One — has to spend time watching the proposed content of each episode and decide whether it will present the team, and the coach, in the best possible light. Last year, former Browns coach Hue Jackson learned that lesson the hard way. He thought the debut-episode back and forth with former Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley would make Jackson look good and Haley look bad. And that backfired on Jackson, badly.While Jon Gruden developed during his time in TV a good sense of what does and doesn’t work Derek Carr Jersey White , there’s still an ever-present risk that he’ll guess wrong. It won’t take much to create a problem, especially with fans and media scrutinizing every scene of every episode for any hint of dysfunction or drama that can become a talking point the following morning, and beyond.Jay Gruden doesn’t have to worry about that; he can simply focus on getting his team ready. Jon, as he prepares for a season that will include a game in Winnipeg, a game in London, an extended absence from Oakland, and regular-season games against the likes of the Chiefs twice, the Chargers twice, the Broncos twice, the Bears, the Packers, the Vikings, the Texans Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey , the Jaguars, the Colts, and the Titans, he’ll have to add to that burden the weekly obligation of ensuring that nothing in makes a hard-knocks season even harder. ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden will be a TV star once again.HBO announced Tuesday that the Raiders will be featured on the network’s “Hard Knocks” show in training camp this summer that gives a behind-the-scenes look at an NFL team. “Monday Night Football” before returning to the sideline for a second stint as Raiders coach last year. Now he will likely be a star of the 14th edition of this reality show.“Everybody wants to be a Raider,” owner Mark Davis said. “Now they’ll find out what it takes to become one.”The Raiders made several high-profile additions this offseason that made them an attractive team for the show in their final scheduled season in Oakland before a planned move to Las Vegas.They hired another former TV analyst as general manager in Mike Mayock, traded for big-play receiver Antonio Brown and signed controversial free agents Vontaze Burfict and Richie Incognito. Oakland also had three first-round draft picks in Clelin Ferrell, Josh Jacobs and Johnathan Abram, as well as quarterback Derek Carr.Gruden had expressed reservations about being on the show but the Raiders were one of five teams who could be forced to do the show because they didn’t make the playoffs the past two seasons, didn’t have a new coach and hadn’t done the show the past 10 years.NFL Films will send a 30-person crew to training camp in Napa to shoot more than 1,750 hours of footage for the series with access to meeting rooms, training rooms, living quarters and practice fields.“They do a really good job of staying out of your way Womens Bo Jackson Jersey ,” said defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, who was on the staff in Cincinnati when the Bengals were featured on the show.“You can see, kind of, what’s going to be on the show. I think the positive thing is you find out a lot about your team and the coaches on the staff that, ‘Hey, when the camera is on you are you going to be a different guy or a different player or if you’re not.’ Because really after the third day, you don’t notice, you’re so used to having them around that you just go about your business.”The other teams that were eligible were San Francisco, Washington, Detroit and the New York Giants.The first of five episodes will air Aug. 6.
