Raiders’ Jon Gruden Trolls Stephen A. Smith Over Chargers Comments

The aftermath of Stephen A. Smith’s brutal blunder on live television while talking about the Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs is being felt across the sports world. Players, coaches, fans, and even teams are going out of their way to troll the ESPN analyst for his previous comments, and we can now add a new name to the list.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden.
As Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group revealed, Gruden threw some shade at Smith when talking about the team’s upcoming game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

It’s Been More Than 30 Years Since The House Reversed An Election Outcome
Friday December 14, 2018

What’s going to happen in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District? That’s a question currently without an answer. Republican Mark Harris was initially declared the winner, but after allegations of election fraud cast doubt on the integrity of the vote, the next steps remain uncertain. With The Washington Post now reporting that Harris personally directed the […]

“Jon Gruden channeling his inner-Stephen A. Smith when talking Bengals: ‘We’ve got to get ready for Dan Ross and Booby Clark. We’ve got to watch out for Isaac Curtis down the middle. We’ve got to get Tim Brown and all of our receivers ready to play.’” McDonald tweeted.

Do Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen Talk About Retirement? Patriots QB Opens Up
Saturday December 15, 2018

Tom Brady, obviously, is on the back end of his NFL career, but it appears his significant other isn’t pushing him into hanging up his cleats. A few days after Gisele Bundchen was asked by Ellen DeGeneres about Brady’s eventual retirement, the New England Patriots quarterback provided some clarity about his wife’s stance on the […]

For those who missed the moment, Gruden’s reference of former players goes off Smith’s brutal pregame evaluation of the Chargers vs. Chiefs matchup on Thursday night. It featured an in-depth breakdown of players who weren’t playing in the game. Including a mention of the play of Chargers tight end Hunter Henry, who’s missed the entire season with an ACL injury.

Stephen A. Smith’s Confusing Comments
Aside from mentioning Henry, Smith began the segment on ESPN’s show First Take by referencing Spencer Ware, who Max Kellerman quickly pointed out was not playing. That was innocent enough but following that, the analyst proceeded to reference the road team as the “San Diego Chargers” and mention Derrick Johnson.
“I’m also looking at the San Diego Chargers on offense and I’m thinking about Hunter Henry and the way that he’s played this year and as effective as he’s been. He’s going up against Derrick Johnson and I’ve got to keep my eyes on that.” Smith states.
Obviously, Gruden is well aware of the fact that Johnson is no longer on the Chiefs, considering he was a member of the Raiders for a few weeks earlier this season. After the comments had wrapped up, the internet trolling began, as the Chargers Twitter account even got in on the action.

Celtics Notes: Robert Williams Continues To Impress When Given Opportunity
Saturday December 15, 2018

It’s time to bow down to the Time Lord. Initially, all the talk of a nickname for Boston Celtics rookie Robert Williams III seemed a tad premature. The Texas A&M product, while possessing elite athleticism, was unlikely to see a ton of playing time for a team that is loaded with talent vying for an […]
