Bucs Should “Herald” Gruden This YearMay 10th, 2011
Joe doesn’t typically read the columns of John Romano of the St. Pete Times, but Joe did check in for Romano’s live chat today at TampaBay.com.
Romano was peppered with Bucs questions, including whether Team Glazer and the Bucs organization should roll out a hearty public welcome for Chucky when he makes his return to the C.I.T.S. for the Bucs-Colts game on Monday Night Football on BSPN in October.
Romano says Chucky should get his due.
Comment From Gorilla: Will the Bucs herald Gruden with an announcement and love when he returns for Monday Night Football?John Romano: I don’t know. But they should. Even though the Bucs and Gruden parted ways, there is no doubt he was an effective coach in Tampa Bay. Beyond the Super Bowl, he took the team to the playoffs several times. I think the biggest problem is the Glazers picked Gruden over Rich McKay in a power struggle. Gruden needed a strong GM to keep him from making too many short-term decisions on personnel.
