Gruden in “A Mess”

Jay Gruden was cited by his brother Jon as being in a mess in Washington in conjunction with his head coaching position. My friend Vijay Eswaran shared this with me.  Washington currently has a record of 3 and 10 and is in the midst of a quarterback controversy surrounding Robert Griffin III (RG3).

Jon was the former coach of the Oakland Raiders and the Tampa Bay Bucs and won a Super Bowl with the latter team before departing and starting a career in television as a television host. Jay is the current head coach of the Redskins and is wrapping up his first season which has been seen as a failure.

RG3 who was acquired by the Redskins in a massive deal with the St. Louis Rams trading multiple draft picks for the right to draft RG3. In his first season RG3 was electric leading the Redskins to the playoffs and a near victory until he was sidelined in a controversal injury in a playoff game in which he was kept on the field despite the injury. 

Since this point his career has not gotten back on track and there have been numeorus discussions in the press regarding Jay Gruden’s preference to move on from RG3 to another QB option. RG3 was largely considered to be the future of the franchise up until this point.

Jay responded to his brothers mess agreeing that the situation is a mess and that any 3 win team could easily be defined as being in a mess.
