My apologies for being late to the party this week. We are on the eve of Week 5 and I haven’t even processed Week 4. Hell, I haven’t sent up a Hollow Mockery since opening night. But let me assure you; I still exist, even if only in a phantasmal sort of vein. The reasons for my sporadic efforts are manifold. My work days have become as grueling as the NFL week. They are barely over and they are beginning again. I have been worked like a revolting mule. I can’t find the time to figure out what the hell happened and already I’ll find myself staring down the barrel of Thursday Night Football. But I suppose there are greater travesties than perpetual football. Indeed one such travesty occurred Monday Night, when the balloon in Jon Gruden’s stomach burst about fifteen minutes before kickoff and he was reduced to a raving fool with no recourse to reality. I can be sure of these things. I am, after all, an expert, and have been completely divorced from reality myself--for profe...
BEST OF MAXIM
MAKE MY DAY!
There’s no doubting Jon Gruden as a football coach. Broadcasting football? Not as good.
As exhibited during the Chicago Bears-Dallas Cowboys Monday Night Football game, Gruden got weird talking about Tony Romo.
“Make my day, Tirico! Go ahead, make my day!” Classic face from Tirico through the whole video.

This clip of Jon Gruden isn't so off because Jon states that Tony Romo is the best quarterback in the NFL -- it's because he's on goofy mother ******.

If we all enjoyed our job as much as Jon Gruden, the world would be a much better place. Or much crazier. Or both. The former NFL coach turned Monday Night Football analyst has developed a reputation for really, really loving football and really, really loving those who play that game. He's not afraid to show that, either, as he's proved time and time again during ESPN telecasts...
The NFL football world watched Monday night as the Chicago Bears systematically dismantled the Dallas Cowboys in front of a national audience. Dallas owner Jerry Jones has to be growing tired of his team underachieving on the field. They looked like a power house in the regular season opener against the New York Giants and then were simply overwhelmed in Seattle against the Seahawks...
Jon Gruden had a very interesting Monday Night Football introduction, and that is putting it nicely. Check out the look on Mike Tirico’s face while all of this is happening and you will see exactly what you need to.
Thanks to The Shut Down Corner we have the transcript:
“He’s a modern-day John Wayne,” Gruden said of Cutler. “Look at the tape — he’s a modern-day Josey...
Monday Night Football was off to a normal beginning for the Bears-Cowboys broadcast... until Jon Gruden went totally bonkers talking about the game's two quarterbacks - Jay Cutler and Tony Romo. Of course, this segment was set up by Mike Tirico talking about the much maligned Cutler and the polarizing Romo as just below the ELITE QB LEVEL.
In Jon Gruden's...
Before the beginning of last night’s game between the Cowboys and Bears, ESPN’s Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden was just a tad over excited to watch Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo play.
Unfortunately for Gruden, Romo ended up throwing five interceptions and had one of the worst games of his career.
