Rams coach Jeff Fisher no longer has respect for former NFL quarterback Bernie Kosar.
Kosar worked on the Browns’ local broadcast of their preseason game against the Rams, and he made several derogatory comments about the team. Kosar described the Rams’ receivers as “horrible,” suggested that the receivers’ parents should be “embarrassed,” described Rams receivers coach Ray Sherman as “not doing very good” and made some odd rambling comments about how little he thinks of Rams backup quarterback Kellen Clemens.
At his Saturday press conference, Fisher suggested that Kosar has personal problems.
“Bernie’s got his issues. They’re well-documented,” Fisher said.
Fisher said he doubts Kosar has done the kind of research that Fisher believes an announcer should do before opining about a team. And he said that while he still respects the Browns, he doesn’t think Kosar belongs in the Browns’ broadcast booth.
“I guess I’m a little disappointed,” Fisher said. “I feel bad for them that they had someone doing the broadcast who would feel the need to speak that way about players, specifically on our team, and coaches for that matter. I’m just surprised that Bernie has such a lack of respect for players and for this game. So I lost a lot of respect for him.”
Kosar was a popular player in Cleveland during his time with the Browns. It’s safe to say he’s not a popular man in St. Louis right now.
