    Jon Gruden is the best announcer

    in the NFL. I love when he sits down with QB's and just talks to them. Then his announcing during games is great. He knows his stuff and calls people out. I hope he stays with announcing instead of going back to coaching.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Jon Gruden is the best announcer

    Folks were pretty critical of him early on but I agree he is really good. I enjoy listening to him on MNF.

    Re: Jon Gruden is the best announcer

    I like what he says, but I think it's the way he says it that just drives me up the wall. Something about his tone of voice just gets to me.

    Re: Jon Gruden is the best announcer

    I usually understand different opinions on things but how anybody can like Gruden is beyond me. All he does is verbally fellate each quarterback and say THIS GUY hundreds of times each night. He is the opposite of Chris Collinsworth who obviously watches a lot of tape, talks about players other than the QB's, and actually points out negative things. I have stopped watching MNF because of Gruden.

    This. (although I still do watch MNF) Gruden is little more than a cheerleader. His insight is mostly superficial. Give me Collinsworth any day over Gruden.

    Re: Jon Gruden is the best announcer

    I like Gruden's 1 on 1 segments with players...those are great.

    His "announcing" is pretty bad. He loves everyone and everyone is the greatest player in the league.

    Re: Jon Gruden is the best announcer

    Anyone is better than Dierdorf (sp?). I turned his game on yesterday (why I don't know) and litterally had to turn the channel within 2mins.

    Un-listen-able.

    As for Gruden...everyone on the field is a Hall of Famer at the game he is calling.

    All of the ESPN NFL analysts are really bad. Merrill Hodge, Jaworski, Dilfer, Keyshawn, the lesser Hasselbeck brother, Ditka, and Berman are all brutal.

    The worst was the Sunday Night Football announcing team when ESPN used to have that game. Mike Patrick and Joe Theismann were in the same booth.

    Re: Jon Gruden is the best announcer

    I don't mind Gruden just because I hate Jaws, and I think Gruden doesn't care for him much either.
    Best announcers hands down are the Sunday night NBC guys, Michaels and Collinsworth.

    Collinsworth is the tool of all tools...but he does do a decent job.

    Agree. He's smug, and vain, but he does his research, knows his stuff, and is light years better than Gruden. Gruden should stick to... well, I was going to say coaching, but I'm not convinced he was ever very good at that, either.
