Colin Cowherd has turned his show into a joke with his constant and unnecessary cracks at Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.
Never go full meme. That’s advice that Colin Cowherd should start to take seriously. Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield tweeted out on Wednesday that he and his wife witnessed a UFO while returning from dinner. Not a story. People see weird events in the sky all the time. Most of them are explainable, some of them aren’t.
In fact, things like UFOs, cryptids, and the unexplained have huge fanbases not just on Twitter, but on YouTube and all over television. Humanity as a species is fascinated by the unknown and macabre. So the fact that Mayfield shared an experience is a nonstory. Moreover, a UFO isn’t a classification for “alien” as many seem to suggest, it’s just that it’s an unidentified object in the sky.
Cowherd though had to show the world just how little credibility he has left by actually making Mayfield’s UFO tweet a case for why he has a problem with the Browns quarterback. Cowherd goes on to denigrate Mayfield, by saying people like Tom Brady aren’t tweeting about seeing aliens (which Mayfield never said he did)
Cowherd then doubles down even further, saying that his opinion on the Browns will change because of this. Brady, who was mentioned in Cowherd’s bizarre rant, was quick to hip-check the host, by asking him when they ever talked about aliens?
What’s even better is that Cowherd’s predictable hate of Mayfield is so obvious and expected, people are turning Cowherd into a meme. Twitter user McNeil, who many Browns fans have seen on Twitter at some point, tweeted out at 5 a.m. Thursday morning a near spot-on meme (prediction) of Cowherd’s take on the Mayfield-UFO story.
The meme-tweet was posted about nine hours before Cowherd even took the air. Cowherd is a joke in the eyes of many Clevelanders. He’s said outlandish things like Mayfield wasn’t a man, lied straight to his viewers about calling Mayfield undraftable, and contradicted himself about Mayfield after watching Cleveland defeat Pittsburgh in the playoffs.
Cowherd has no credibility. We long for the day that people on cable are given their position due to their intelligence, savvy, and insight into sports and not just because they say outlandish things and carry a vendetta against certain people.
