Jay Gruden expecting brother Jon to call game honestly

Monday August 18th, 2014

Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he expects his brother, Jon, a commentator on Monday Night Football, to be honest in his assessment of Jay in Monday night's game between Washington and Cleveland.

"Jon is Jon," Jay Gruden said, according to ESPN. "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 has called two games in which Jay served as an offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals.

"Jon is very good at what he does," Jay Gruden said. "He won't jeopardize what he does for my feelings. That's for sure. He never has."

The Redskins will host Seattle on Monday Night Football on Oct. 6.
