Bob Papa Out At NFL Network

Via CBS Sports:

According to Richard Deitsch of SI.com, the NFL Network will switch up its lineup next season, implanting in the booth Brad Nessler on play by play and Mike Mayock on color.

Bob Papa, who had been holding down the play by play job since 2008, is a solid broadcaster – not flashy, yet very capable – but the NFL Network made him re-audition for his job (which many of us saw as quite a slap in the face) and ultimately didn’t get it.

I like Papa, and frankly I think he can move on to better things than Thursday Night Football. Heck, the last time the Giants played that night was Thanksgiving 2009 in Denver and we ALL remember how that ended…
