    In response to his recent criticisms of the league, the NFL Network slightly revises Bryant Gumbel's job description.

    [size=12pt]Former NFL star rips Gumbel [/size]
    Don Banks, SI.com

    In a scathing rebuke of Bryant Gumbel's recent comments on HBO's Real Sports last week that NFLPA head Gene Upshaw is a "personal pet" of outgoing NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue, former [glow=yellow,2,300]Minnesota Vikings[/glow] running back and longtime player rep Robert Smith accused the TV host of both desperation and jealousy.

    "Bryant Gumbel has fallen in recent times,' Smith told SI.com on Tuesday. "He's desperate to have a respected, national voice again, but the problem is a lot of people aren't listening anymore. So you've got to say something like that to get attention for yourself. But he's misinformed.

    "To me, this is Gumbel's Dan Rather-type mistake. He's someone who has been around for a while and has some credibility, but who wants to believe a certain perception. I believe part of it with Gumbel is that Gene is a much more powerful black man than he is. And he's jealous of Gene's power and position. I think Gumbel's even jealous of where his former [NBC's Today] co-host Katie Couric is, and how she's moved on to a more powerful position and he still hasn't.'

    If Gumbel gets shown the door, that'll be the only thing him and Cossell have in common. As annoying as Cossell sometimes was, Gumbel isn't worthy to lick his boots.
