Gruden’s QB Camp returns for a third season

On Monday Night Football, Jon Gruden suppresses much of his personality.  In his annual QB Camp miniseries for ESPN, he doesn’t.

And so many of the folks who turn down the volume on Monday nights during football season turn it up loud for Gruden’s QB Camp, which according to ESPN will be back for a third year.

This year’s crop of scowl-recipients includes Andrew Luck (Stanford), Robert Griffin III (Baylor), Kirk Cousins (Michigan State), Nick Foles (Arizona), Case Keenum (Houston), Kellen Moore (Boise State), Brock Osweiler (Arizona State), Ryan Tannehill (Texas A&M), Brandon Weeden (Oklahoma State), and Russell Wilson (Wisconsin).

The process gets started on March 31 at 7:00 p.m. with the debut of the Luck session.  On April 2 at 9:00 p.m., the Griffin episode will air.  Both will be shown on ESPN; all others will debut on ESPNU.

So enjoy the “Chucky” version of Gruden while you can.  After the draft, Chucky gets stuffed back in the trunk, right next to Mr. Marbles.

    This is why they should have moved Gruden instead of Jaws. Gruden is much better in stuff like this, but just awful in the booth.

    I think Grudens QB camp is great!

    Next I would like to see

    (Brian) Dawkins DB camp
    (Ray) Lewis LB Camp

    If he takes his Monday Night Football attitude with him, there wont be any coaching happening. Just alot of complementing.

    No only is it excruciatingly awkward, but name me some pro bowl qb’s he has helped develop.

    This guy is notorious for ruining QBs. I don’t think he has ever coached a young guy to stardom but he breaks down tape, scowls and asks them dumb questions. That show is not for the QBs; it is for his ego.

    Gruden as a QB mentor is laughable.

    I am also looking forward to the Shaquille O’Neal Free Throw Camp.

    Enough of the Chuckie insanity…why does ESPN find him to be an entertainment attraction i’ve worn out my mute button from avoiding listening to him “liking and loving” every thing and every player geez…the wrong person got sent packing from MNF!!!

    This is NOT must see tv. To echo earlier posts…name a pro-bowl QB developed by this guy?

    I LOVE this program. even if chucky is a bit much sometimes it is a great program to learn about who these kids are and get some football education.

    Worst TV show ever. Gruden won’t criticize the players and will heap lavish praise on each and every QB no matter if they falter. He practically gives them the answers to repeat on camera, so he can gush about their attributes. He’s sickening to watch and listen to on MNF, especially his man crushes on certain players.
