No matter how much credit you think Jon Gruden deserves for the Bucs' lone Super Bowl victory, there's one thing we all can agree on.

Gruden belongs to us.

He helped to deliver arguably the biggest achievement in Tampa Bay sports history. No fan base had more fun with his "Chucky" persona. He lives in the area. And he was just inducted into the Bucs' Ring of Honor.

So, now that the Raiders appear on the cusp of luring Gruden back to the place where he spent his first four seasons as an NFL head coach, how do you feel about it?

Would you have preferred he returned to coach the Bucs?

Do you feel that, though maybe not the right fit for the Bucs,  you don't want him anywhere else, either?

Do you worry that he might achieve success with the Raiders that he could have had here?

Will you miss him as a broadcaster?
