Colin Cowherd did the unthinkable last Friday, saying the Cleveland Browns would go on a run in the second half of the season. Following the team’s loss to the Denver Broncos, the famous FS1 host went out of his way to apologize for his “worst football take ever.”
Throughout the season Cowherd has ripped on the Browns for their lack of discipline and inability to sustain any success. Yet somehow, he convinced himself that the franchise would go on a winning streak that would begin last weekend.
Instead of proving Cowherd right, the Browns turned in an uninspired performance against a team led by a quarterback making the first start of his career – Brandon Allen.
On Monday, the FS1 radio host issued a public apology for being so confident in the Browns and pessimistic in the Baltimore Ravens.
“I apologize. I have told my staff to take it off the archive,” Cowherd said. “It is my worst football take ever. Everything that matters to me, I bailed on because I couldn’t get over the schedules.”
Cowherd wasn’t done bashing the Browns.
“As I was sitting there watching Baltimore win and Cleveland implode, I’m thinking ‘I forgot some obvious things.’ John Harbaugh is excellent, meanwhile Cleveland coach Freddie Kitchens is a busboy at Applebee’s. I forgot that Lamar Jackson is coachable, hardworking and quiet. Cleveland’s quarterback is loud and cocky, and he thinks that is leadership.”

Whether or not you like Cowherd, it’s pretty clear he owns up to his mistakes.
It’s probably better off that Cowherd goes back to criticizing the Cleveland Browns. Besides, it’s entertaining to see him go back and forth with Baker Mayfield.
