That would be great!!!

Vince Lombardi Jr. is available and only 65, so he'd fit right in.

Well as long as he's a chip of the old block of granite.

BTW, that would be a tough deal, being the son of Lombardi.

How can this be when Seifert was seen at the airport?

Gruden actually was on Seifert's staff with the Niners in 1990 (and in 11 years of head coaching he's only had two losing seasons).

A new coach won't matter as long as we still have the same Owner and GM.

His grandson used to coach with the Saints several years ago.

He's probably just using the Bills to drive up his market price

Maybe Grudens doing a season ending expose on his quarterback segment of Fitz. There just working out details. The nite before Xmas eve.
As backwards, inept, and pathetic this franchise operates at times. Can anyone fathom a coach hiring, while Gailey and the boys are probably in the air returning, and having to play a game next week? A extremely rare event in any sport such a douchy move.
Something doesn't smell right but then again maybe Brandon is desperate already for his shiny 2013 toy to pimp out.

In all honesty Gruden would have LUNGED at Russell Wilson in the 3rd.....so of course  I hope this is true.....at least the man can spot a great one.

If this is true, and I find it highly suspect given the timing of things, then the Bills better have a back-pocket style minority candidate available for a courtesy interview, or they're going to be docked draft picks or fined pretty good for not taking the Rooney Rule seriously.

Just a thought.

Just like Mario Williams, right?  This argument is really stupid.

Because it's a head coaching job in the NFL, and generally NFL coaches get paid lots of money to do what they love.

Me, too. FWIW, I hope you're right but my first thought was similar to what 'thebandit27' posted...what about the 'Rooney Rule'? Any minority candidate interview would seem like a total sham if they really were hell bent on Gruden. We shall see, I guess. Happy holidays! :beer:

Why isn't Gruden meeting with the general manager? Oh, right, because this is a made-up story.
