Bengals Hire Gruden

The Cincinnati Bengals in a shocking move, hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Super Bowl winning coach Jon Gruden to be their general manager... oops, they hired Jay Gruden to be offensive coordinator. What? Who the hell is Jay Gruden? Oh, he's Jon's younger brother and former head coach of the United Football League's Virginia Destroyers.

Sorry, Bengals Nation, you have to be skeptical. This has Mike Brown all over it. The Bengals like their coaches to have NFL DNA regardless of their talent. Don Shula, son of Dave. Bob Bratkowski, son of Zeke Bratkowski. And how did those two coaches work out?

And it gets worse Bengals Nation. Jay Gruden comes from the UFL where by rule there are no 3-4 defenses. And in that league you can only blitz six guys. You got it. Jay Gruden whose latest experience has no dealings with 3-4 defenses will be facing Pittsurth Steelers Dick LeBeau's 3-4 defense. Oy Vey. Welcome to Bengals football.
