It's no wonder. One of the jobs Gruden was referring to is his own.
If owner Daniel Synder and general manager Bruce Allen recommit to Griffin as the 2015 starter, Gruden could be sacrificed in a power struggle.
A former high-ranking team official predicted, via The Post, the move would weaken the franchise for as much as a decade if Griffin failed to become a superstar.
Allen knew the risks when he sold everything but his soul for the opportunity to stake his career on Griffin's unique talent. He acknowledged his regime's carelessness in rushing Griffin back to the field for the start of the 2013 season.
Perhaps most telling, two different head coaches hand-picked by Allen have not only benched Griffin but also publicly and privately castigated the erstwhile franchise savior.
Who could be surprised if Snyder opted to blow up the entire operation and start from square one next offseason?
Whether or not Snyder absolves Allen for his football sins, the futures of Gruden and Griffin are on the line in December.
