Back in January, Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis sent a surge of excitement through the fanbase when he signed Jon Gruden to a massive 10-year, $100 million contract—easily the largest in NFL history for a head coach. However, three months into the Gruden era, trepidation has tinged that excitement. A series of puzzling personnel moves has some wondering whether after nearly a decade in the broadcast booth Gruden's the guy to lead Oakland back to the promised land.Is he on the verge of vaulting the Silver and Black forward, or are the Raiders at risk of stumbling backward even more after a disappointing 2017?
