Thanks, Bryant

Bryant Gumbel does the right thing. It took him two years to do it, but maybe he thought learning on the job was the best way to help a fledging, barely watched, overpriced Cable outfit.

I'm all for having a three-man team in which one person is there not because of play-by-play ability, or expertise in the sport. But it has to be a three person team to allow for that individual. Having a two-person team that has one person who doesn't know the game or how to call it is kind of a waste. (note: Those three person teams usually have a personality guy. Bryant Gumbel clearly fails that metric, too).

Morning TV "news" shows really seem Bryant's milieu. Perhaps he should look into getting back into that.

I'd say I was pretty stoked about this, but I'm not even sure I had the sound on for any of the games I watched on NFL Network.

I think Gumbel should team up with Dennis Miller.

Perhaps on a game show on CNBC.

Well in that case BBM, toss in Rush and some animatronic Harry Carrey - now you have a game show.
