Raiders head coach Jon Gruden’s return to coaching in the NFL hasn’t gone as planned up to this point. Oakland is off to a 1-5 start and rumors that they are tanking have started to surface.
Gruden caught wind of the rumors and addressed them during his latest press conference.
“We’re not tanking anything. I hear the hatred out there, some of the rumors that we’re tanking it to get a first-round pick, or a higher pick. We’re not getting up at four o’clock in the morning to tank it. Ain’t nobody tanking.”

It’s safe to say Chucky isn’t happy with the rumors. So they aren’t tanking, maybe they should be.
