Jon Gruden said this week that his brother, Jay Gruden, is in the middle of a mess in Washington. Jay Gruden agrees.
Asked about his brother’s comments today, Jay Gruden said that when your record is 3-10, you do feel like you’re in the middle of a mess.
“Three and ten, that’s a big mess no matter where you are, Washington or all the other teams that are having losing records right now,” Jay Gruden said. “It’s not a good situation. Coaches put a lot of time and effort into this thing, and GMs and all that, and you want to see success and we haven’t witnessed a lot of success here lately, but it’s our job to keep coaching and trying to get this thing turned around, and trying to create a stable environment here, and environment that is conducive to working and learning and trying to get the best out of our players. The results may not show right now, but hopefully in the future, with hard work and preparation, they will.”
Jon Gruden talked specifically about the quarterback situation in Washington, and hinted that his brother doesn’t think Robert Griffin III will ever be the right guy to lead the franchise. Jay Gruden didn’t say anything about that. Instead, Jay just said what we all can see: His team is 3-10, and that is a mess.
