    Do we like Bob Papa?

    He's the play by play commentator for the giants and he's always on giants vids on the giant site.but I never hear him being mentioned on this boards. What is the general opinion of him? I know people like Carl banks who is the color commentator but I don't anything about papa.

    I have no problem with him. Always seems genuine and respectful towards the team, owners and players. He's also well known and respected around the league. Glad he's with the Giants organization.

    I like Bob, and you can hear him most mornings on Sirius NFL Channel. Considering just how much he is around the Giants, he's pretty reasonable and not a mega-homer.

    I have heard Papa on the radio a few times, when I used to live up in Jersey. I have watched him some on NFL Net during preseason Giants games. I like him as our guy. He does not act like a homer like some of these other commentators.

    Trust me, living in Tennessee, one guy I cant stand on the radio or TV is the Titans commentator, Mike Keith. He is so biased and one-sided, moreso than any other commentator I have listened to in any sport. Keith goes way overboard when the Titans do something well, but when the other team scores a TD or registers a sack, he is the polar opposite. I have called him out on it in the past, via email, but he could care less about my opinion--LOL!!
    One day, not today, not tomorrow, not this season, probably not next season either but one day, you and I are gonna wake up and suddenly we're gonna be like every other team in every other sport where winning is everything and nothing else matters. And when that day comes, well thats, thats when we'll honor them--Jack Lengyel Marshall University
