Gruden on the Hot Seat Says


Is Bucs coach Jon Gruden hanging onto his job by a thread? That may be the case according to a new article on The site has come out with an article about coaches being on the hot seat for 2007, and sure enough, Gruden is on the list. There is no question that Gruden, coming off a 4-12 season, has been talked about in terms of a coach that could find himself fired sometime in 2007. Below are the comments made by the site in regard to Gruden and where he stands as the 2007 season gets closer.

Jon Gruden, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2006 record: 4-12)

Gruden’s a big name and is widely regarded as a strong coach, but the Buccaneers have been a roller coaster during his tenure. The high point was obviously the Super Bowl shellacking they handed the Raiders in 2002, and the low came just last season as the Bucs fell to 4-12. The offensive was anemic, ranking second-to-last in both points and yardage, while the defensive finished in the bottom half of the league for the first time since the days of Bucco Bruce.

The team’s biggest offensive acquisition was quarterback Jeff Garcia (Philadelphia Eagles), while one of their biggest defensive acquisitions was defensive end Gaines Adams. While these are decent players, they may not provide the major boost the Buccaneers need. If the Buccaneers are picking in the top 5 again in 2008, it is possible Gruden might not be around to give his input.
