Read Jay Gruden’s crazy rant from “Hard Knocks”


This doesn’t even need a whole big introduction. It’s just pure anger from Jay Gruden, offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals. Can you guess the censored words? I think he’s saying “taco.”

Some of the (bleep) that happened yesterday you wouldn’t expect on the first day of rookie OTAs. We had three dropped snaps and a couple things that were my fault. That is Mickey Mouse horse(bleep) football right there and we all had our hand in it. Everybody had their hand in it and it can’t happen for us to be as good as we want to be. Ever.

 

I can handle a drop every now and then, I can handle a guy beating you with a good pass rush move. I can handle certain things but I can’t handle mental (bleep)ups time and time again.

 

Andy’s been a quarterback here for three (bleeping) years and hasn’t had one dropped snap. Not one. We had three in one day!!! Concentration, poise. You’ve got to have it every snap in this game otherwise you’re going to get your ass beat time and time again, you’re going to be 18th ranked in offense, you’re going to be 9-7 or 8-8 and you’re going to be (bleeping) watching the playoffs at home every year.

 

Yesterday we took a major step backwards and now today we’ve got to take two steps forward. You have to have great concentration, great attention to detail not just on Sunday’s. On Monday’s, Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s, Thursday’s, Friday’s and Saturday’s. If you want to muddle around at .500 (bleeping) then come out here and (bleep) around and (bleep) up. But if you want to be great you’ve got to set your standards high and you’ve got to come out and go at it every (bleeping) day.

A big thanks to Cincinnati.com for transcribing this glorious rant.
