    When compared to Kornheiser and Dennis Miller, he's amazing.

    When judged on his own merits, I also find him annoying.
    A bit too much of this:

    "When he made the cut, THAT WAS THE MOST AMAZING ACCELERATION I'VE EVER SEEN."

    "The Steelers defense IS COMMITTED TO STOPPING THE RUN LIKE NO OTHER DEFENSE IN THE LAND."

    Etc.
    Listen to him tonight and you can HEAR THE ALL CAPS COMING THROUGH THE MICROPHONE!

    Well, I don't think that's such a bad thing.
    After all, our local radio announcer is Paul "I HAVE NO INDOOR VOICE" Allen.
    And I love that guy to death.

    Then again, I haven't really seen much of Gruden so you might know more than me.

    PA is supposed to be a homer - he's the Voice of the Vikings Radio Network.

    Gruden is supposed to be in impartial commentator.
    I like his insights, but he really does need to tone down the exciteable rhetoric.

    I, personally, would love for Merrill Hoge to be the guy with Jaws.
    Just do the NFL Matchup show from the booth every Monday Night and I'd be in heaven.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
