    Best NFL Network News, EVER!

    LOS ANGELES -- Bryant Gumbel has given up his role as an NFL Network play-by-play announcer after two seasons.

    The NFL Network said Friday it was looking for a new play-by-play announcer to work with Cris Collinsworth on the network's Thursday and Saturday night games.

    "I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to call NFL Network games the past two years, which was a new experience for me," Gumbel said in a statement. "But we've agreed that we'd all be better served going in different directions
    ."

    Can I get a HELL YEAH? I hated Gumble, now they just need to get rid of Collinsworth

    Then, now, forever.

    I actually like Collinsworth, but Gumbel may have been the worst play-by-play guy I've ever heard anywhere.

    well Collinsworth might not be to bad if they get a good play by play to go with him. I still remember Gumble calling Tony Romo "Rick Romo" during the Packers/Cowboys game, biggest game of the year for NFL Network and he botches the star players name repeatedly.

    Then, now, forever.

    I believe I heard him say Tony Bono during that game as well.
