Colin Cowherd has to fill multiple hours of radio five days a week, it’s inevitable that he’s going to contradict himself now and again. More often than not, listeners probably don’t even pick up on him changing his opinion on certain things, but his latest flip-flop about Mac Jones simply can not be ignored.
Simply put, Cowherd is, or in this case was, wrong about Jones.
Prior to the 2021 NFL Draft, Cowherd was absolutely certain that Jones wasn’t going to work out as an NFL quarterback. He was dead set on this, and extremely confident about it, as you can see in the video below.
“Mac Jones, good Lord, Mel Kiper’s got to slow down on this,” Cowherd said. Mac Jones ain’t gonna work, folks. It’s not gonna work. You just gotta come to terms with it. It’s not gonna work.”

The Patriots of course drafted Jones 15th overall and that decision has worked out pretty well for them as the rookie QB has led them to a 9-4 record this season.
Given Jones’ success so far, Cowherd has completely changed his tune about the young QB. Now, just a couple of months after writing him off, Cowherd thinks Jones is good enough to win a Super Bowl.
“Folks, young Mac Jones looks like young Tom Brady,” Cowherd said. “Once you find the right quarterback, it just gets easier…Mac is clearly good enough to win a Super Bowl.”
The video of his two contradicting takes is a thing of beauty:
This might be my favorite Cowherd clip that I've ever posted, and that's saying something. Here is Colin on Mac Jones… before and after.

Cowherd has said a lot of things over the years, but his change of tune about Jones in such quick fashion may deserve a spot in his personal hall of fame.
