Kelechi Osemele: Jon Gruden’s energy what we need right now

It will be a little while before Raiders players can start working with their new head coach Jon Gruden, but they’ve been able to talk to him a bit and two of the team’s Pro Bowl offensive linemen noted the same thing in their conversations.

Center Rodney Hudson said he “could feel his energy” when asked about his impressions of Gruden. Left guard Kelechi Osemele shared that read on Gruden and also mentioned a focus on details that may be an increase from the past.

“He brings a lot of energy,” Osemele said, via ESPN.com. “I think that’s what we need right now. That’s the biggest change — the energy. I think it’s going to be high intensity. I think it’s going to be really detail-oriented, from what I’ve heard. That’s just the vibe I’m getting. It’s going to be very, very detail-oriented, and I think it’s going to be good for us.”

If more energy and more attention to detail add up to more wins, the move to bring Gruden back will go down as a smart one by the Raiders.

  1. The difference between Gruden and Joe Gibbs coming back to coaching??

    Gruden has been studying film every single day! Joe Gibbs got involved in Nascar.

    Bring the energy!

  2. Yeah yeah yeah…. Gruden is all about the ridiculous amount of money he’s going to make. Can’t blame the guy. Money talks.

    You were the same guy lobbying for Gruden to coach the Ringless Iggles two years ago.

  4. LOL Two best time of the year for Raider’s fans. 1) The draft, when they nail it every year which always = SB! 2) Before the SB is ever played when they talk about next year when they go to the SB!

    I tip my hat to you fans of the silver and black, your tank is always full of hope, your eternal hope masks your silent depression well.

  5. Wooooooo!!!

    The RAIDERS are going to win the SB!

    Just throwing it out there so all the kooks and chowds can get it out of their system.

    Bray on, donkeys.

  6. They better hope he brings a lot more than just energy given the 10 year contract he got. That’s an awful lot of guaranteed money he’ll have to be bought off with if the Raiders do poorly under Gruden and they need to dump him before the contract is over.
