    Sorry to hear

    Meridith was a fine QB and one of the NFLs all-time characters

    At least he got to dance on Cosells grave

    Was it him and O.J. that always argued on air or was it O.J. and Cosell?

    Cossell thought ex-players were too dim witted to give color commentary as brainy as he thought it should be.

    Cosell was an ass who knew nothing about the NFL. His preparation for games was non-existant and he tried to get by on his Howard Cosell image
