Gruden: Raiders offense causes confusion for defenses

ALAMEDA — It's disorder and confusion when the Raiders have the ball, and Greg Olson is the man responsible.

Only for a change, the turmoil is happening on the other side of the line of scrimmage.

That's how former Raiders coach and ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden described what Olson is doing with the Oakland offense in a recent phone interview.

"What Greg has done is created a lot of chaos," Gruden said

Gruden, who hired Olson as his quarterbacks coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008, will call the Raiders game Monday night against the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field.
