    Summerall/Baldinger to do Rams game

    From Fox Sports:

    Pat Summerall, who rarely does any national broadcast games, will be doing the Rams@Bengals game Sunday for Fox (along with Brian Baldinger). Summerall is a legend in broadcasting. He was partners with John Madden for what seemed like forever at CBS and then Fox.

    The last time I watched a game Summerall did he screwed up alot. I think he should hang it up. Don't get me wrong he was great, key word being "was".

    Let's just hope and pray that Summerall stays at FOX and Bryant Gumbel stays at the NFL Network. Wouldn't want to see and hear those 2 working together.:x

    I agree laram0, no one did it better than Summerall, but the last thing he needs to be doing now is calling a live football game. I feel embarrassed for him. Oh well, at least the call on Sunday should be entertaining.

    I'd take Summerall every day of the week over Gumbel, but yes, having them doing the same broadcast would be a comedy of errors. At least Summerall has some legitimate excuses for how he is now, Gumble has none and is just an arrogant dumbass.

    I either have too many friends over to hear the commentators or i mute my TV and bring in the radio for the play by play.

    Although its been a while since i have heard Summerall.

    It's gonna be hysterical to hear him try to pronounce names like Oshiomogho Atogwe, Adeyanju, and Klopfenstein...too bad Pisa Tinoisamoa is on IR.
