Gruden has given up. You know how you can tell?

During his presser he finally grabbed for the injury excuse to explain why the team is easily the most penalized in the NFL.

That is usually what an HC falls back on right before he is shown the door.

Of course there is always the chance that like Zorn, Gruden simply stays the HC for the balance of the season enduring each successive loss as sort of perverse punishment from Snyder and Allen.

But mentally Gruden has officially checked out IMO.
