Gruden’s QB Camp expands to non-quarterbacks

Jon Gruden AP

From September through December, we see Jon Gruden every Monday night.  But we never see his acid-tongued alter ego, Chucky.

Fortunately, Chucky makes an appearance every Spring, in the weeks preceding the draft.  Chucky returns in 2013, with the fourth installment of Jon Gruden’s QB Camp.

This year, with a thinner-than-usual crop of elite quarterbacks, Gruden will go beyond the most important position on the field, sitting down with Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel, South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore, and — yes — Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o.

The quarterbacks who’ll get the Gruden treatment include USC’s Matt Barkley, Tyler Bray of Tennessee, Miami (Ohio) product Zac Dysert, N.C. State’s Mike Glennon, Landry Jones of Oklahoma, Florida State Seminole E.J. Manuel, Ryan Nassib of Syracuse, West Virginia’s Geno Smith,and Tyler Wilson of Arkansas.

Air dates and times have not yet been determined.

    Are they going to have to know Spider 2 Wide Banana too?

    Gruden couldn’t find any worthwhile quarterbacks this year so he had to go to other positions.

    When all was said and done, John was surprised to find that Joeckel showed the best arm strength of the entire group, Lattimore was the most accurate, and Te’o picked up the play calling the quickest. He might go back over the tape just to be sure.

    Teo picking up on anything fast… Lol

    Well, I’m disappointed. I was waiting to see Gruden gush over Colin Klein, who insists that he will be a successful pro quarterback.

    Anyone notice that Gruden has put on a lot of weight?

  9. seanb20124 says: Feb 14, 2013 8:02 PM

    Surprised Lattimore is ready to go

    Is Teo sure that Gruden’s really the one who contacted him?

  11. canetic says: Feb 14, 2013 9:09 PM

    So now Tebow can come?

    I would like to see a fringe prospect on the show.

    Someone like James Vandenberg would be cool.

    I really hope Chucky is out in full force as if he was in the locker room as if he was still coaching and not on TV.

    Therefore, if he asks Teo where he should be on a coverage, and he gets in wrong, Chucky can say “Who are you covering then…your girlfriend?”

    I have zero doubt in my mind that the actual, behind closed doors, Jon Gruden would say things like that, as his, or as an opponent coach, if he was in the NFL.

    It would be hilarious, will still giving Teo the buisness, and, getting him ready for things he’s likely to here the next time he steps on the field and for the rest of his career.

    Pretty sure he had Nick Fairley on a few years ago

    @letsgololos Actually I remember when Blaine was on his show. Gabbert didn’t take his crap at all. Only guy who stood up to him.
