  • Simeon Rice Calls Jon Gruden A “scumbag”


    Posted by Mike Florio on January 27, 2009, 8:58 p.m. EST

    In a Tuesday interview with Sirius NFL Radio, former Buccaneers defensive end Simeon Rice told Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan of Movin’ The Chains that Rice believes former Bucs coach Jon Gruden is a “scumbag.”

    “You get what you deserve,” Rice said. “That’s what Jon said. He got it now. Everybody gets what they deserve. . . .

    “You look at what he did when Chris [Simms] damn near died on the field he wanted to release him right when he got injured. I get hurt, my shoulder’s torn off the bone. This dude releases me. You know what I mean? I’m your guy. The list goes on. Keenan McCardell, that situation was a debacle. Keyshawn Johnson, another situation [that] was a debacle. Joey Galloway, which was his man, was in the dog house all year because he got injured, broke his ankle or whatever. Brad Johnson, that situation was bad. Brings Jeff Garcia in here,
    oh, he’s going to change things. I helped recruit him [and he] released me, kept Jeff and then put him in the dog house. Gets rid of Brian Greise, brings him, starts a controversy. It was chaotic. I’m giving you facts.”

    And then Rice gave opinions.

    “How I feel personally? I could tell you that, too. I think he’s a scumbag,” Rice said. “I think he’s a scumbag personally. That’s when he’s telling you one thing and… You know what he told me? ‘Simeon you’ll be here in the next five years.’ I got injured [and] this man’s never said one word to me. I won a Super Bowl for you. I got 13 sacks, 12, 15 every year for you. I balled. I got injured [and] you let me go like it was nothing.”
    Props to Charger$ for the sig

      I will say the way John Gruden treated Chris Simms was wrong.

      That being said, Simeon Rice is a me first person who thinks that the entire world revolves around him.

      And yes, I think Gruden is a bag o' dooooche.

      Hooray, beer!

        I've heard interviews all week long from players that have played for Gruden... not one said a negative thing.

        Rice and Garcia are the only ones that didn't like him. There was a player that said the QBs seemed to have gotten the most wrath from Gruden.

        But I dont' take anything Rice says as much to take seriously. I also dont personally think that Gruden treated Simms wrongly. But.... *shrugs*

          Gruden has been doing players dirty for a few years now and gets away with it and the organization just hides it cause he is always in the playoff hunt. I am glad he got a reality check, I wonder where he ends up now, KC maybe?

            And Rice is an idiot for A: Thinking he could play here for the Broncos, and B: for even thinking he can play in the NFL again.
