“I won’t watch it. I disagree with the premise of the show. The premise is that Gruden is some quarterbacks guru and that having him as a destination for a rookie QB is the ideal situation for a rookie and that just hasn’t proven to the case,” King said via JoeBucsFan.com.
King has a point. Gruden never successfully developed young quarterbacks as a head coach. He found success with Rich Gannon, Brad Johnson, and later moderate success with Brian Griese and Jeff Garcia. Chucky failed to truly develop King, Marques Tuiasosopo, Bruce Gradkowski, Josh Johnson, Luke McCown and Chris Simms.
We have no doubt Gruden is a difficult coach for a young quarterback to play for. His personal history doesn’t detract from the show, though.
If anything, Gruden’s willingness to push buttons makes it more fun to watch.
