Former NFL receiver Cris Carter drops an F-bomb on live TV

Former ESPN analyst Cris Carter has a way with words. His "C'mon, man!" phase was so popular The Worldwide Leader kept airing it on "NFL Countdown" even after they parted ways with him.

But the former Eagles receiver is off to a rough start at FOX Sports, where he is now an FS1 NFL analyst.

On Friday, Carter was a guest on FS1's "The Herd" when he let loose an F-bomb on live TV while discussing the hiring process of Alabama head coach Nick Saban back in 2007.

"They said, 'You know, we're used to doing things this way, this way, and this way.' And he said, 'Good. You've lost every f—- way doing that. Now we're going to do things my way," Carter said.

Listen (warning: adult language):

"We regret the remark and apologize for any offense taken," a FOX Sports spokesman said in regard to Carter's verbal snafu. If there was any major problem with the former receiver's foul language, it wasn't apparent on the set. No one seemed to comment or flinch at his remark.

Carter has also found himself in a fight with Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, who called the Hall of Famer a "puppet" after saying Bryant was the "absolute worst" receiver for catching on 52 percent of the passes thrown to him, which Carter said was the worst among receivers targeted over 90 times this season.

Going into the final week of the season against the Eagles, Bryant has 50 receptions for 769 yards and 8 touchdowns, which is significant drop from his Pro Bowl 2014 season where he where he had 88 catches for 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns. His toughest opponent has been the Giants, who have limited Bryant to just 2 catches for 18 yards in two games this season.

"Dez wants someone to be a fan, he wants someone to pat him on the back. " Carter mockingly said on Thursday's "The Herd."

On Friday, he was a bit more conciliatory.

"I apologize because he's not the worst," Carter said. "The list was made backwards, so as far as people targeted 90 times, he was the fifth worst."
