WATCH: Colin Cowherd Gets MASSACRED For Egregiously Insensitive Mistake

FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd found himself in hot water after making a comment that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

During “The Herd,” Cowherd presented a list of 20 quarterbacks drafted since 2013 who he believes cannot win a Super Bowl. One inclusion on the list left many people stunned and appalled.

The controversial list featured the late Dwayne Haskins. Tragically, Haskins lost his life in a fatal accident last spring, leaving behind a once-promising career and a grieving family.

“Teddy Bridgewater, Dwayne Haskins… guys that are just not,” Cowherd began before pausing and correcting himself, “It says can win Super Bowls, it’s can’t. Can’t win Super Bowls.”

While Haskins’ NFL career turned out to be a major disappointment, clearly he shouldn’t have been included on this list – and Cowherd later realized it.

It was a mistake. Plain and simple. Cowherd wasn’t trying to be malicious in any way, shape or form. That’s not his style, and this was just a sloppy and unfortunate mistake. 

Nonetheless, the mistake drew immediate backlash from a large portion of the football world. 

“GOOD LORD.” -Mike Florio.

“This is a jaw-dropping failure by everybody involved in making this graphic and clearing it to go on air.” -Chris Williamson.

“Colin Cowherd Pratfalls Through The Laziest Possible Segment Of Football Analysis.” -The Defector.

“An egregious and disturbing mistake by Colin Cowherd…Extremely bad.” -JPAFootball.

Haskins, who had set records during his time at Ohio State, tragically lost his life in April 2022 after being hit by a car in southern Florida.

The devastation of his passing was compounded by recent legal actions taken by his family. Eleven months after the fatal crash, Haskins’ wife, Kalabrya, and his parents filed a lawsuit alleging that he had been drugged, blackmailed, and robbed in the lead-up to the accident.

Haskins, who was selected with the #15 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, played two seasons with Washington before joining Pittsburgh in 2021.
