Jon Gruden trolls Stephen A. Smith while previewing Bengals
The wider NFL world took note of Stephen A. Smith’s disastrous Chiefs-Chargers preview and is gleefully piling on.
The latest to do so is Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden, who alluded to Smith’s messy analysis by mixing up a few names while previewing Oakland’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
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."

The Chargers and their players were more than happy to pile on as well, and now it’s happening with Gruden as well. There’s probably a little knife-twisting here: Smith has been critical of Gruden in the past, and Gruden has been willing to fire back, so he probably enjoyed this opportunity.
