Jay Gruden does not expect preferential treatment from his brother tonight

Tonight, when the Washington Redskins host the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football, Washington head coach Jay Gruden is not expecting special treatment from his brother Jon.

Via ProFootball Talk:

“Jon is Jon,” Jay Gruden said. “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.”

This is also unique in the sense that one brother is calling another’s game as opposed to a father calling his son’s game, something we’re far more used to. In fact, I’m sure Archie Manning does this on a regular basis even if he hasn’t been asked.

It’s hard to imagine Jon Gruden being negative in GENERAL let alone towards his brother during a pre-season game. Gruden, I’m sure, will be more excited than he normally is, so it will be interesting to see how this turns out. Since pre-season doesn’t REALLY count, I think Jay should make a really bad decision on purpose just to see how his brother handles it. Just kidding. Sort of.
