Default Gruden commentary....

Anyone else enjoy his commentary during the game??

He was really showing love for the Steelers but thats not what i liked best. I liked the brutal honesty and when someone on the field made a dumb play or got toasted, he called them out loud and clear.
A nice change from the usual kiss-*** run-of-the-mill announcer teams from the NFL. There needs to be more of this (shades of Howard Cosell honesty....).
I'm not sure how much longer he'll stay in the booth because i'm sure he'll be employed sooner than later, possibly in the off-season, by a prominent NFL team in some capacity.

I like Gruden alot. I enjoy listening to him no matter where it is. In the booth, in the QB room,
in the film room etc. He is fun to listen to. And for the most part, blunt and to the point.
No dancing about the subject.

Thats true. Although i do like Collinsworth. Besides Gruden, no one will "tell it like it is, the good AND the bad" like Collinsworth.
The one's i don't like anymore are the ho-hum Al Michaels, Dierdorf, etc constantly kissing everyone's ***

Gruden is a good guy, tells it like it is regardless.

Unless he joins the Sanchez is god train, I will hold true to my comment above, lol
That love fest needs to stop on the other networks.

I don't think he is very good. One descent play by a team and he goes way over-board in praising them.

I think Gruden did a nice job last night.....but he's usually guilty of running at the mouth. I've watched other Monday night games and he drove me nuts. Last night he seemed to have toned it down a bit.

Hopefully one day the networks will realize it's the game on the field that is the entertainment...not the mouths.

I want Dennis Miller back.

Gruden is probably my favorite too though. I just like his style. He does tend to ramble sometimes, but that's ok. It's no worse than Bob Errey (who does the "color" commentary for the Pens)...he will ramble you to death.

Gruden is pretty good for the most part....but how he says Roethlisberger will start to annoy me after a while
