Jon Gruden on analytics: Raiders won't rely on 'GPS's and modern technology'

Jon Gruden Is Not An Analytics Guy Prefers the

Jon Gruden might have spent the last 10 years studying football, but he's not ready to cast his lot with analytics. "They have the data - or data - and they don't know how to read the damned thing!"

But in his first National Football League scouting combine appearance as the new Oakland Raiders' head coach, Gruden appeared to want to turn the clock back. "There's a stack of analytical data. that people don't even know how to read". I'm not going to rely on all the modern technology. I think he's smart.

Yet for some insane reason, sportsbook BetDSI has made a decision to declare a favorite in the odds they put on the team that will win the 9th overall selection in the upcoming NFL Draft, since the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers are tied for that spot at the moment.

"That kind of did push me over the top, " Gruden said of the Ring of Honor ceremony. While he hasn't been able to meet face-to-face with players due to CBA rules limiting coach-player contact this time of year, Gruden said Cooper is the only real impact player drafted by Oakland the past three seasons.

"Well, you have to", he said, nearly as if he didn't want to, also mentioning the experienced, old-school assistant coaches he assembled on staff. I also know a lot of coaches that have this information and data and don't know what to do with it. "I want better technology".

"I'm already back 20 years", McKenzie said.

"I'm a tape guy. So that's been very, very hard for me, and I've been emotional about it at times".

"Really, as a broadcaster, I went around and observed every team". I mean, he's a fullback with speed, but he was injured, it impacted us on special teams and it certainly impacted the offense.

Wintry Mix: Snow, Sleet and Freezing Rain for Thursday
With temperatures getting into the mid 30's during the day, some of the snow will melt in the late morning, early afternoon. WHERE.Portions of northwest and west central Wisconsin and central, east central, south central and west central Minnesota.

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is not expected to be present at the combine, which happens to take place at Lucas Oil Stadium - the home of the Colts - in Indianapolis. I never met half of them.

For all of the offseason buzz over the prospect of new Raiders coach Jon Gruden jumpstarting quarterback Derek Carr's stalled career, the biggest mystery on Oakland's offense is enigmatic wideout Amari Cooper.

Michael Crabtree will reportedly be back for a fourth season with the Oakland Raiders.

"I'm envious of the Patriots".

"I'm trying to throw the game back to 1998", Gruden said. If you look at play time, the amount of percentage of snaps, he's out there all the time. "Y'all want to restructure everybody's contract?" "You're running everybody out of town". If there is no contract, Mack is scheduled to play for the fifth-year exemption figure of $13.8 million.

So, now a little under two months in, how have things been going between McKenzie and Gruden?

All of which sounds like good news for the Raiders, the fans, and especially for All-World Everything, Khalil Mack.
