Jay Gruden expecting fair treatment from brother Jon


Washington coach Jay Gruden probably doesn’t have to worry about getting ripped on tonight’s Monday Night Football broadcast.

But that’s only because his brother Jon rarely rips anyone, rather than because of preferential treatment.

“Jon is Jon,” Jay said, via John Keim of ESPN.com. “He’s going to be positive if he can, but if I do something that’s out-of-line ignorant, I’m sure he’ll call me on it. . . .

“Jon is very good at what he does. He won’t jeopardize what he does for my feelings. That’s for sure. He never has.”

Jon has called games Jay has been involved with before, when he was offensive coordinator in Cincinnati. But with Jay in his rookie season as a head coach, there may be mistakes.
But considering his brother generally praises everyone to a ridiculous extreme, it might be hard to tell if anything’s different tonight.
