LOS ANGELES (AP) -- 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."

That mad my day!

So who should take over?

Tom Hammond wasn't that bad when he filled in for Gumbel in the Texans/Broncos game. I'm thinking Hammond is a strong possibilty.

Except the fact he couldn't pronounce anyone's name correctly. It could've been a short notice type of thing, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. I'd take him over who's out their right now.

Al Michaels turns down the NFLN play-by-play gig.

Quote:
As legend has it, sports broadcaster extraordinaire Al Michaels once proclaimed as to the prospects of working at ESPN that he won’t be working for a four-letter network. Apparently, that vow still applies.

Per a media source, Michaels has turned down an opportunity to serve as the play-by-play man for NFLN’s regular-season slate of pro football games.

Michaels was pursued by the league-owned network to replace Bryant Gumbel, the big name with small talent who handled the duties for the first two years of the NFLN effort. Michaels currently provides the play-by-play call for NBC’s weekly Sunday night coverage.

It’s unclear where the NFL will go from here. Others who have been linked to the job include Tom Hammond, Brad Nessler, Marv Albert, and Pat Summerall. Other possibilities, in our view, would be Mike Patrick and Brent Musberger.

We also are intrigued by one or more outside-the-box possibilities, such as our pal Dan Patrick, whose weekday radio show streams live on SI.com — and who from time to time allows us to pollute his air waves.

Another possibility would be to hire both Albert and our other pal Boomer Esiason (who currently team up for a national radio broadcast of the Monday night games), and make it a three-man crew, with the incumbent Cris Collinsworth, a former teammate of Esiason’s

This is the best suggestion I've seen. Marv Albert is the best, no matter what sport you're talking about. Collinsworth knows the game. Boomer is a smartass. Every booth needs a smartass.
