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."

Jon Gruden talks so much about Eli Manning you would think he is carrying his child or something.

Gruden made a particular point of hyping up the play of RG3 throughout the night.

"OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE THAT?!?!? HOW AMAZING IS THIS GUY?!?!?"- Jon Gruden, reacting to RGIII taking a drink of water on the sideline #MNF

Lol cc @christrapasso RT @armandosalguero: I like the Redskins offense but I don't want to make love to it like Gruden does.

Sure Gruden. Never seen these plays before.

#Gruden has been talking up this Washington offense all night but they only have 10 points so far.

What would we do without Gruden's amazing, insightful commentary? -Nobody #MNF

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.
