    No idea who this Papa fellow is, but I think a 80 year old woman with Tourette's would be better than Gumbel.

    Re: Gumbel Replaced at NFL Network

    Bob Papa is on the NFL Network radio program on Sirius. He seems to know his stuff. I personally enjoy listening to him.

    Can't stand Bryant Gumbel. Greg Gumbel is pretty tolerable.

    I believe he also is involved with the NY Giants radio broadcast.

    "It's a touchback, so the [team name here] will take over at the 35."

    Yes he actually said that.

    The best one I ever caught was him calling Tony Romo...Rick Romo.

    There's gotta be a website that has a compiled list of all his bonehead calls.

    Greg went to college somewhere in IA, I think. Maybe Coe?

    Re: Gumbel Replaced at NFL Network

    When the first Gumbal got famous, I thought he was pretty good. But too much exposure ruined it for me and when you have two of them that doesn't take much. At least one of them has a connection to a small college in the state of Iowa, so they can't be all bad.

    Re: Gumbel Replaced at NFL Network

    No, the best was the one that was once in someone's signature where Gumbell said "the Bengals go into the hurry-up offense" as the camera is pointed straight at the Bengals' huddle and the Bengals' offense is clearly taking their time.
