Raiders to chase Gruden with lucrative offer

Raiders to chase Gruden with lucrative offer

I take a lot every year from coaches, some others.

Jack Del Rio told reporters that he was sacked after Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, according to Steve Wyche of NFL Network. Del Rio spent the last three years as the man in charge for Oakland.

Gruden went 95-81 over his coaching career, notching a 38-26 record over the first four years of his career in Oakland. After going 7-9 in his first year, the team jumped to 12-4 last season and reached the playoffs. Stories about Gruden, who hasn't coached in a decade, returning to the sideline have become an annual tradition, but perhaps this time there's actually some traction to them. They entered 2017 with high expectations but completely flopped, going just 6-10 while disappointing across the board.

No 64GB Switch Cartridges for Developers Until 2019
The difference between the standard Nintendo Switch cartridge capacity and the upcoming 64GB cartridge can be massive. While the Switch may miss out on certain games, Nintendo has a slew of titles planned for the system in 2018.

But the bigger issue for Oakland may have been on offense.

"Today was kind of a microcosm of our season", Del Rio said after the Raiders' 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Derek Carr is the highest paid quarterback in the National Football League, and with 2016 Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack rushing the passer, they have some great pieces to build with.
