Bernie Kosar: 'I Don't Want to Disrespect' NFL Players or Coaches

Aug 15 2013, 9:45pm CDT | by

Cleveland Browns television analyst says he meant no disrespect in regards to his comments about the St. Louis Rams in last week's preseason game.

Cleveland Browns television anaylst Bernie Kosar says he meant no disrespect when asked about his comments during the preseason game against the St. Louis Rams last week.

Browns beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes Kosar made no apologies for his harsh commentary about the Rams and even defended his analytical style. 

"I love the game so much and there's no way I'd want to disrespect or hurt or make fun of any players or coaches. That being said, the way I look at the game and the way I like to analyze it from a football perspective, it is what it is. Again, I don't want to disrespect or hurt any of the players or coaches in the league. But I do like the way I look at the game and I have strong feelings about how the game is played."

During the August 9 preseason game against St. Louis, Kosar took a swipe at Rams rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin, the Rams receiving corps and Rams receivers coach Ray Sherman.

Here were some of Kosar's on-air comments:

"I see why (Rams quarterback) Sam Bradford has been struggling watching how bad these receivers have been for him.

"This is not actually a bad throw. These St. Louis receivers are horrible. That's a drop there.

"I'm checking through the itinerary here of guys and coaches to see who the receivers coach is to make sure I don't know who this guy is because he's doing not very good, either."

He also chimed in on Rams backup quarterback Kellen Clemens getting an autograph from Pope Benedict XVI.

"Bless me father for I have sinned. I have to watch him the whole fourth quarter."

Rams coach Jeff Fisher, who was disappointed with Kosar's comments, admitted he received a phone call from the Browns former quarterback and analyst, who apologized. Fisher said afterward,"It's a dead issue. It's all behind us." 

Cabot notes Browns CEO Joe Banner reprimanded Kosar for his "personal and unprofessional approach" during the broadcast. Cabot also says Kosar's erratic behavior on TV and radio is linked to post-concussion syndrome.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
