Pro Football legend Dan Hampton led off this weekend's episode of Pro Football Weekly with an apology for two comments he made last week. Hampton had suggested the Dallas Cowboys couldn't win the NFC East because "The Cowboys think they are Clint Eastwood; they're more of the Brokeback variety, if you know what I'm talking about.” He also suggested that the Minnesota Vikings should go into New Orleans (where they were playing the Saints) and "hit that town like Katrina."

Hampton apologized for both comments this weekend:

Hampton: “Last week I made a couple of comments about Katrina and the gay community that not only embarrassed myself but the fine people here at Pro Football Weekly. I'm an idiot. And I am truly sorry if those comments offended any of our great and wonderful viewers. Again, I'm truly sorry about that.”
