Colin Cowherd has said his fair share of controversial things on air, but his latest blunder is pretty abhorrent.
The FS1 radio host was speaking about NFL quarterback tiers on his show “The Herd” when he mentioned a tier called “QBs that can’t win Super Bowls.” In that tier, he included 20 names, specifically calling out Baker Mayfield, Teddy Bridgewater, and Dwayne Haskins.
It was Haskins’ name that was most notable because Haskins was being grouped into this tier despite tragically passing away in a car accident in last year.
Haskins, who was selected in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the then-Washington Redskins, was hit by a dump truck on April 9, 2022, after attempting to cross a state interstate in Florida.
While Haskins had an up and down NFL career during his three years in the league, the idea of putting him on arbitrary quarterback list given his tragic death seems like a stretch too far.
It’s likely that Cowherd and his producers may have made the mistake of just taking all QBs drafted since 2013, Cowherd still singled Haskins out by calling his name.

On today’s show, Colin Cowherd mentioned Dwayne Haskins as one of the QBs who cannot win a Super Bowl.
This is factually correct, given that Haskins passed away 16 months ago. pic.twitter.com/L1PvtPLyY6
