Hallelujah!

Greg's sister is thankfully gone. (http://www.nfl.com/news/story;jsessionid=7528687848EFF27955F1EA629C454C80? id=09000d5d807b681a&template=without-video&confirm=true)

Thank you, NFLN. I hope they sign Tom Hammond, who does Notre Dame games and NFL wild card playoff games for NBC. He filled in for Gumbel last year one game and did a great job.

Bryant Gumbel should just do something late at night, and talk over a waterfall or some rain fall, id get a great night of sleep :)

A better idea would be no football games are on the NFL Network, I hate watching anything played on the NFL Network. Dumping Gumbel almost ranks as high as dumping Ahmad Carroll for best move ever. Now get rid of Colinsworth get some decent announcers and better cameras and NFL Network might just be watchable.

I recall Hammond getting several names wrong in the Broncos vs. Texans game but he's good other than that I guess.

At least Collinsworth doesn't think Al Gore plays football.

I think my two favorite booths over the past few years have been Mike Tirico/Sterling Sharpe, and practically any play-by-play guy with Dick Vermeil/Jaws.

"White people love Wayne Brady, because he makes Bryant Gumbel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryant_Gumbel) look like Malcolm X (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_X)"

Gumbel was REALLY bad but I like Cris Collinsworth for the most part.

Well, that marks the end of the career of Rick Romo...

According to NFL.com Gumbel quit but im sure there just being nice. He was either fired and NFL just said quit to be nice. Otherwise they informed him beforehand that he was getting fired so he could quit.

He wasn't that bad, the only thing that I really didn't like about Gumbel was his voice. Oh you mean talking is the most important part of being a commentator? Yep he sucks.

Ain't gonna happen.
He brings in too many fans. That's why they gave the boot to Joe Theismann
instead.

Am i the only one that absolutely hates the way Jaws talks?

It pisses me the hell off every single time he says he "breaks down the film"
and just finds isht the least bit knowledgeable football fan could find.

Can't they just have Troy and Joe do every game?

he's a good guy, but not made for the booth.. Did anyone catch John Clayton on ESPN Radio today bashing Gumble about how bad he is?

Moose Johnston is actually pretty good too. I forgot the name of the other guy he does it with, but they also have Goose on the field adding stupid but funny comments every 10-15 minutes.

I agree. He was an atrocious PBP announcer. I heard him several times mess up on down & distance.

Lmao...He messed up so much on the games. He messed up twice in that little snip of footage. I got annoyed so much with him.

I literally found myself unable to watch the Cowboys/Packers game after he called the Packers the Cowboys twice in a one-minute span.
