Jon Gruden's work in the Monday Night Football commentary booth has often been lampooned and criticized. That trend continued in full force on Twitter in Week 13.
As the Washington Redskins and New York Giants squared off, Gruden's remarks drew the ire of many tweeters throughout the night.
His consistent mispronunciation of Martellus Bennett's name (he referred to him as "Marcellus") and unrelenting positive attitude were highlights of the night.
Let's examine some of the best reactions from Twitter:
When does Gruden tell us how RGIII called that one in huddle: "The old waggle waggle 42 cross triple option with a oopdy oop at the end."— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) December 4, 2012
Jon Gruden talks so much about Eli Manning you would think he is carrying his child or something.— Tom Bradys' Ego (@TomBradysEgo) December 4, 2012
YOU CAN RUN RIGHT **OR** LEFT OUT OF THE PISTOL?!?!? THE DEVIL YOU SAY?!?!? #Gruden— Michael Schottey (@Schottey) December 4, 2012
Gruden made a particular point of hyping up the play of RG3 throughout the night.

#Gruden has been talking up this Washington offense all night but they only have 10 points so far.— Chuck Raasch (@craasch) December 4, 2012
What would we do without Gruden's amazing, insightful commentary? -Nobody #MNF— Kobe Logic (@KobeLogic) December 4, 2012
With Gruden repeatedly turning down every coaching job that comes his way, we can count on many more nights like this one in the future.
