John Gruden does not want to hang out in 115 degrees shitty Las Vegas.
When Elwood helicoptered in with the eyes of an NFL sociopath, he knew that his days were numbered. Like that spaghetti dinner that was put together from a hodgepodge of spice remnants, every NFL season can never be duplicated. If just one player of the 1728 players makes a mistake or is not in condition, the time-space continuum is distorted, and the road to playoff Disneyland is altered. Even a simple double shot espresso or a domestic quarrel can change the outcome of a game. Every single physiological event related to the NFL player and coaches must be in extraordinary sync in order for a team to navigate and negotiate the NFL playoff and Superbowl matrix.
Rare are the quarterbacks like Bret Favre, Joe Montana, John Elway, Drew Brees, Phillip Rivers, Alex Smith, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and a slew of NFL quarterbacks that refuse to quit and play 16 to 20 seasons. Some are subject to the ups and downs of the organization and watch as their chances for Superbowl Valhalla ebb, flow and subside. For many, attaining the high water mark is a mystery. Other times, it is handed out on a platter. Some see repeated opportunity. Others will go their entire career with only a few playoff showings. Some, like Ben Rothlisberger, go 15 and 1 in their first-year and then win a Superbowl a year later. Everything is a roll of the dice. However, the dualism of mind, and body along with leadership and teamwork, must be at 110%. Then the narrow path to greatness must somehow line up. A good head coach knows how to elevate the players every single game. Some have natural leadership, while others take a professional career of 30 years to arrive at that leadership destination. Others are winners as soon as they show up. Total crapshoot.
The game between Phillip Rivers and Derick Carr is a significant event and a canary in the coal mine. It could set the tone for 2018. The AFC West was supposed to be a tough division this year. Instead, Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs had a fall from grace, and the Raiders regressed horrifically. Denver had an epic mental collapse as well. Phillips Rivers, on the other hand, rose up in a new city and refused to give in. However, the laws of physiology are closing in, and the Denver Broncos will see an excellent opportunity to win again in 2018. Nothing is ever written in stone.
If John Elway is patient, he will give Vance Joseph the D-line. He will then pick up Jon Gruden. This combination will exploit Vance Joseph’s steady hand while bringing in a Superbowl head coach. Elway will also keep Siemian around for the remainder of his contract because he is a badass with kevlar gonads.
I would do whatever I can to make the soon to be Las Vegas Raiders suffer. Make the land of gambling and decadence suffer. As far as KC and LAC, they are flashing in the pan as we speak. The road to redemption starts with division wins and Jon Gruden. You hear that Siemian? It will be done in 2018 no if and or butts.
