Derek Carr and Jon Gruden “off to a terrific start”

In the three seasons Gruden and Gannon shared together, Gannon threw for over 10,000 yards, 79 touchdown passes and Oakland made the playoffs each year with this duo. Prior to joining the Raiders, Gannon’s top season was less than stellar as he only managed 2,305 yards through the air with ten touchdown tosses and six interceptions.

With a tough-love coaching style, Gruden was able to help lead Gannon on the path of his most productive years in the NFL. Now, Gruden will oversee an offensive attack that already boasts an MVP-caliber quarterback in Carr.
