After successfully beating his third or fourth anxiety attach of the morning, Jon Gruden removed the brown paper sack from his face into long enough to tell Tennessee he was both physically and emotionally incapable of leading the SEC’s flagship football program back to glory.
Jon Gruden’s fear of returning to the sideline was paralyzing…so much so that he found himself unable to commit to the University of Tennessee. Many people would argue that one should not fear failure but embrace it because eventually, it will lead to a beautiful success.
Not Jon Gruden.
He succumbed to his fear of coaching college football. Stay up in the booth Jon, we don’t need a coach that would perfect the “deer in the headlights” stare then meltdown when facing Alabama’s Nick Saban.
What does Jon Gruden do when he feels like a failure at coaching? He probably kicks himself in the jimmy- which would be great right now if he could physically do that. Gruden is now wallowing in ineptitude, comforting himself with something warm and creamy (ice cream? Mac and cheese?) – After all, will a few more calories really make a difference now?
Those who can, do. Those who can’t, work for ESPN on Monday Night Football. Thanks for the procrastination and I hope your anxiety attacks eventually subside (next week).
