NEW YORK - Bob Papa, the radio play-by-play voice of the New York Giants for the past 13 seasons, will replace Bryant Gumbel as the announcer for the NFL Network's eight Thursday night games.

Papa will team with Cris Collinsworth to do the games, which had been handled by Gumbel for the first two seasons of live games on the NFL's television outlet. Gumbel, primarily a studio anchor over his long and diverse career, stepped down after last season after mostly unfavorable critical reviews.

Papa, who will continue his duties with the Giants, will make his debut with Collinsworth on Nov. 6, when Cleveland hosts Denver in the first game of the third season of NFL Network games.

With Bryant G finally dumped, Let's start a wish list of additional "color these guys gone and improve my viewing pleasure".

My list:
1. Joe Morgan
2. Tim McCarver
3. Joe Buck
4. The Celtics FSN team (worn out after what must be 20 years)
5. The rest of the Fox NFL crew, except Stockton and "guz
6. Jeanie Z
7. The weather girl
8. Shannon - CBS pre-game
9. Tony on the ESPN Monday Night crew

Thank God that Bryant Gumballs is gone. Watching the NFL Network games with him doing the play-by-play was sheer torture.
