Papa is a good choice. Too bad Collinsworth is back as PxP. The NFL Network has better candidates in-house with Steling Sharpe and Mike Mayock. Last year those two teamed with Papa for the Insight Bowl and did a fantastic job. They had great knowledge of the game and chemistry but unlike Collinsworth, did not take themselves too seriously.
Well Gumble could have had the best commentary in terms of content in the world. If you don't have a good announcers' voice, it doesn't matter. Gumble had the great combination of bad voice AND bad content. Maybe they proposed Gumble at the staff meeting and they meant to say they wanted Greg and when Brian showed up, they didn't want to look stupid and just put him on to do pxp anyways.Among many of the annoying things about Gumble.. one of the things that irritated me the most was that it sounded like he mumbled or spoke just barely above a whisper at times.
