Colin Cowherd’s Controversial Remark on Dwayne Haskins, A Grave Oversight

Republished with full copyrights permissions from the Sports Today magazine.

Opinions and analysis are constantly debated. However, every now and then, a commentator finds themselves in hot water due to an ill-advised statement. Such was the case when Colin Cowherd, a prominent Fox Sports personality, recently made a grave oversight during a segment on quarterbacks who supposedly cannot win a Super Bowl.

The Controversy Unfolds:
During a segment where Cowherd ranked football quarterbacks drafted since 2013, he highlighted a group of quarterbacks whom he claimed were unable to win a Super Bowl. While discussing the topic, key names were mentioned, including Baker Mayfield, Teddy Bridgewater, and unfortunately, Dwayne Haskins. It is important to clarify that this segment took place before the unexpected passing of Dwayne Haskins in 2022.

The Oversight:
In a glaring oversight, Cowherd failed to acknowledge Haskins’ tragic demise when making his statement. This led to an unfortunate blunder, broadcast to a wide audience, which understandably caused uproar. While the overall point Cowherd sought to make about the challenge of finding a successful quarterback remains valid, the lack of sensitivity displayed by skipping over Haskins’ name in the list raises questions about the preparation and thoughtfulness put into the segment.

Cowherd’s misstep is exacerbated further by the inclusion of other quarterbacks on the list who are no longer active players in the NFL. His failure to exercise caution inadvertently tarnished Haskins’ memory and compounded the distress for those affected by his tragic passing. It is crucial for media personalities to exercise due diligence and sensitivity when discussing topics that involve personal loss or tragedy.
