    Papa replaces Gumble-the-Frog on NFL Network

    NFLN HIRES PAPA FOR REGULAR-SEASON GAMES
    Posted by Mike Florio on June 25, 2008, 3:30 p.m. EDT

    Neil Best of Newsday reports that NFL Network has hired Giants play-by-play announcer Bob Papa to handle the call for the eight regular-season games to be aired on the league-owned network.

    Papa replaces Bryant Gumbel, who was a half-click below dreadful during two seasons on the job.
    Papa presumably will work with holdover Cris Collinsworth.

    ...
    I don't know much about Bob Papa.
    Anybody out there in Giant's land hear him announce the Giant's games before?

    I think Papa may have been the one commenting on this game:

    Sounds like he has a lot more passion than Gumble.
    Looking forward to it.

    well, i don't really know Bob Papa, but he can't be half as bad as Gumbel was.

    Yes, Paul that was Bob Papa with the call. He is a very good at play-by-play, even though he is a Giants fan ;D...and a fellow Fordham alumnus.

    Living in NY, I get to hear (and see him) and on the numerous Giants-related broadcasts. He has a lot of emotion, which no one has ever accused Bryant of having...
