Cleveland Browns

Hey, somebody's gotta stick up for the Browns

By Stephanie Storm Published: November 20, 2009

While talking about the multi-year contract extension Jon Gruden signed earlier this week with ESPN (a deal that theoretically eliminated him as a 2010 coaching candidate) the football analyst addressed Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports about the perception that he’s reticent to rip teams and players in his current role.¶
   "I’ll be honest with you, I’ve been criticized by some for being too positive, for loving everybody because I’m trying to get this job or that job," Gruden told Silver Thursday. "That’s a crock. I love the game, OK? And I’m enthusiastic because of it. There are positives about everybody, and I try to find them.¶
   "There’s a lot of negativity out there...And I am truly sorry for not adding to the negativity and for seeing the bright side of the world here. Because, you know, I think negativity is what the world needs. They need some more guys to sit up there and ridicule the Cleveland Browns for four hours."¶
