    Bryant Gumbel Worst Commentator



    Is anyone else in agreement with me? He may be the worst NFL commentator on television (that includes Kornheiser)

    I'm not a big fan of the Gumbal family as it pertains to sports and commentary.

    BUT

    No one holds a candle to the suck-ass-titude that is Tony Kornheiser. I would go back to taking Dennis Miller over Kornheiser. Stupidest thing ESPN did was break up the Mike Patrick/Joe Theismann team. I always liked those guys.

    Definitely best crew I've ever heard.

    If Bryant Gumbel and Tony Kornheiser were paired up in a booth, I truly believe my TV would explode.

    They are by far the worst at their respective jobs.

    I really like Collinsworth though. I read alot where people don't like him but I think he does a nice job.

    See I can't stand Thiesmann. Now Aikman would be great on MNF.

    Gumbel is bad. It's like he's on another planet or something. I actually start laughing at some of the stuff he says. It's actually pretty sad. I don't know why I laugh.

    Kornheiser though is in a different league. When he starts, I find myself wanting to throw things through the TV. It's like nails on a chalkboard. I want to turn the sound down or walk out of the room because he grates on my nerves . . . . . blech I would prefer to listen to ANYONE other then him.

    Amen .... I hear Patrick on some college games and wish he would be back. He has a great voice, enthusiasm for the game and knows what the hell he's talking about. If NFL Network had any brains, they'd snatch him up in place of Gumble.

    ESPN in general has fallen pretty far out of grace.

    I miss Mike Patrick more than I miss any of the other commentators. He also had a great command of the play-by-play.

    I agree Houston, EPSN football coverage just isn't what it was. I think I preferred when they were Sunday night.

    I'll throw my support in that I love Mike Patrick. Here is the highest compliment I can pay him, and he is the only broadcaster I can say this about. Sometimes, I find myself watching a game I have no interest in (not just football, but college basketball too) just because he is doing the play-by-play.

    I agree about Mike Patrick. They should bring him back to the booth and can Kornheiser.

    and yes, Gumbel sux as an announcer.

    I used to work at WNST for awhile as an intern and i spoke to Mike Patrick when i was trying to book him for our show.. He was very nice.. He has some major health issues that might have been the reason why ESPN took him off the NFL beat..

    I only watched a total of 3 MNF games last year because of those maroons.

    And so far this year a total of 6 Qtr.s out of 4 different games.

    Re: Bryant Gumbel Worst Commentator

    I'd like to see Phil Simms, Troy Aikman, and Mike Patrick as commentators for MNF....PS and TA just because of their game knowledge/understanding and Patrick just because he's good at what he does....and either Melissa Stark, Amber Theoharis (Baltimore girls) or Erin Andrews as sideline reporter. Erin Andrews is easy on the eyes!!!

    Amber Theoharis is a joke like Anita Marks. After listening to her defend Aubrey Huff's comments I lost all respect for her. One knew ESPN personality I like is Keyshawn Johnson and I couldn't stand him when he played. Unlike Michael Irvin he doesn't suck up to the players. His interview with Chad Johnson was one of the best I've seen in years. Stewart Scott is someone else I could do without.
