You would think someone who just joined Tik Tok enjoyed silly dancing.
Not Colin Cowherd.
He said he was “turned off” by Denver quarterback Drew Lock’s game-winning celebration dance after the Broncos’ 31-30 comeback win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
As Philadelphia Eagles fans already know, Cowherd “likes his quarterbacks to be quarterback-y” which apparently means no backwards hats. Now he is “turned off” by Drew Lock’s dancing.
“We have a new cool guy,” he said on “The Herd” on Friday. “He’s too silly, too showboat-y, too cool like Manziel, Baker, Cam and Jameis Winston. I was right about them. Four-for-four about to be five-for-five. I’m not into Drew Lock. Win more games, Cub Scout.”
Colin Cowherd dance for a Drew Lock/Broncos win?
Although he didn’t include the Broncos in his Week 9 Blazin’ 5 picks, he made a bet with Lock.
“All I’m going to ask you this week is to beat crappy Atlanta. If you beat Atlanta, crappy Atlanta…dancing is allowed for the rest of the season with no criticism..”
Co-host Joy Taylor said she thought Cowherd was going to offer to dance.
“And I will dance a little on Monday if you win,” Cowherd said about Lock.

If Fox Bet Sportsbook users wager on Cowherd’s “Boom Bet” and it wins, they usually quadruple their winnings.
“We are very very hot right now,” said Cowherd who went 4-1 last week.
“I don’t think I’ve ever taken five favorites,” he said after giving out his Week 9 Blazin’ 5 picks. “It’s a different year. Different stuff is happening. and I really like the favorites this week. Some of them are ugly favorites. Washington is hard to stomach but the Giants are on a short week.”
Seattle Seahawks (-3) vs. Buffalo Bills
Cowherd’s pick: Seahawks
Colin’s final score: Seahawks 33, Bills 26
“Don’t worry about the East Coast. Seattle is on a ten game winning streak in the Eastern Time Zone. Russell Wilson is the best player on the planet. Josh Allen has not played well for a couple of weeks (4 TDs, 5 turnovers in the last four games). The Bills defense is not good enough to beat good teams right now. They beat one good team all year, the Raiders. The Rams don’t count, they got an officiating break on one of the last calls of the game. They are the third team in NFL history to be 6-2 and have a negative point differential. Little bit of fools gold.”
Baltimore Ravens (-2.5) vs. Indianapolis Colts
Colin’s pick: Ravens
Colin’s final score: Ravens 27, Colts 20
“The Ravens have a huge advantage at quarterback. When you have Lamar Jackson you can roll the pocket, quarterback draws, throw it downfield. The last couple years he’s been good on the road. Let’s not freak out. They had 460 total yards against the Steelers. He made mistakes and he has regressed but you can do things with Lamar Jackson you can’t do with Phillip Rivers. I have questions about the Colts; think they have a low ceiling. I don’t trust them and their defense is very reliant on Darius Leonard.”
New York Giants vs. Washington (-3)
Colin’s pick: Washington
Colin’s final score: Washington 24, Giants 17
“Washington is off a bye and the Giants are coming off a short week. You know I always love that. The Giants are coming off an emotional last play of the game loss. Washington’s defense is fantastic and we knew it would be. Daniel Jones has 36 turnovers the last two years, the most in the NFL. I think it comes down to an ugly choppy game. Kyle Allen won’t turn it over and I believe Daniel Jones will.”
Miami Dolphins vs. Arizona Cardinals (-4.5)
Colin’s pick: Cardinals
Colin’s final score: Cardinals 30, Dolphins 22
“Like Arizona, I love Arizona. They are off a bye. Miami, 3,000 mile flight cross country. Tua last week was at home with two weeks to prepare and was very comfortable. Now he is going to be in a shootout. Arizona off a bye is going to put a lot of points up. Their offense is first in total yards per game, rush ypg, and second in rushing TDs. The Dolphins had 154 total yards last week. I think this comes down to Arizona rested, healthier and Tua forced to play at a higher rate.”
New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-5.5)
Colin’s pick: Buccaneers
Colin’s final score: Buccaneers 30, Saints 21
“Really like Tom Brady and the Bucs here. Why were they so flat on Monday Night Football? They were looking ahead. Brady and Brees – the difference is one of them is really good right now. The Bucs have the best point differential in the NFL and the best turnover differential since losing to the Saints in Week 1. Take the first game out. The Tampa defense is number one in the NFL. They also have the ability with A.B. to throw in the slot, up the sidelines. Right now Tampa is an offense with no limitations. Brees missed practice yesterday and is banged up.”
