"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."
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."
"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.
