Jeff Fisher: I lost respect for Bernie Kosar after he ripped the Rams

berniekosar

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.

    Brain Damaged Bernie needs to stop talking in front of microphones.

  2. Patriot42 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:01 PM

    He is being a cheer leader for the Browns and is acting as though he is still in high school.

  3. pathsovglory says: Aug 10, 2013 9:02 PM

    no need to get butt hurt over the words of a color commentator… especially one who’s commentating for the other team

  4. mcjon22 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:02 PM

    Anyone that watched the ESPN 30 for 30 on the U is probably wondering the same thing I am;

    How the hell did he get a broadcasting job?

    You can barely understand him anymore. It’s Lou Holtz bad

  5. thesmartest1 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:05 PM

    I’m with Fisher on this one.

  6. mrcogburn says: Aug 10, 2013 9:05 PM

    And I’ve lost respect for Jeff . . . wait a sec. I’ve never had respect for a .500 coach.

  7. aaroncurryisbust says: Aug 10, 2013 9:09 PM

    As for these specific criticisms that Kosar is leveling: The Rams WRs ARE horrible. Tavon Austin is an excellent young prospect, but until he actually demonstrates competence at this level he’s still an unknown. Pettis is awful. Givens is a one trick pony. Cook is the king of overrated TEs and has done nothing in his career,people only think he’s good because he’s fast in Madden. In what world do we live in where Kellen Clemens isn’t a journeyman scrub? Hell, Kosar should have also called out Sam “Badd for Rams” Bradford for being an outrageously overpaid bust as well.

  8. breynolds0314 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:09 PM

    Pathetic, announcers can be critical of players without sounding like petty little kids. Kosar can’t make that distinction apparently

  9. bleedingorangeandbrown says: Aug 10, 2013 9:12 PM

    I listened to the broadcast, and Bernie was a little more blunt than most color commentators but I thought it was refreshing and did explain what they were doing wrong. He wasn’t just blatantly calling them names, and insulting.

  10. saltydogg55 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:12 PM

    We love you Bernie! The truth hurts sometimes. I watched the game. Super Bowl! F the steelers

  11. zsking1 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:13 PM

    He speaks as if the browns receivers are good or something.

  12. browniebuck says: Aug 10, 2013 9:14 PM

    Should Bernie have said it on television….probably not, but it WAS on a regional broadcast for Browns fans.

    That said…he was simply stating facts (or at very worst, his WELL educated opinion)…the Rams receivers aren’t good and neither is Kellen Clemons! Bernie has always been one to tell it like it is, love him or leave him.

  13. razzzmajazzz says: Aug 10, 2013 9:14 PM

    I lost respect for Jeff Fisher the day he became coach of the Titans.

  14. BurkieInBoston says: Aug 10, 2013 9:14 PM

    What a mess.

  15. legeisyaj says: Aug 10, 2013 9:14 PM

    Laughable. Go back in your hole Bernie.

  16. Stiller43 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:15 PM

    Ive had no respect for fischer because be has like 7 winning seasons in 16 yrs of coaching, and he’s randomly considered a great coach. Why?!

  17. tennesseeoilers says: Aug 10, 2013 9:17 PM

    Man, I miss Jeff Fisher …

    -Titans Fan

  18. fdugrad says: Aug 10, 2013 9:22 PM

    This is a sad story. I remember his playing days and his popularity in Cleveland. Quickly after his career was over things went very badly for Bernie, and at this point, his life is in a very bad place. I don’t know why the Browns would choose to put him on air. That is a dubious decision and should not have been made. There must be ways that the Browns can help Bernie, however they should be done privately, and clearly not in front of a mike.

  19. cardmagnet says: Aug 10, 2013 9:27 PM

    I wonder if all the concussions have impacted his ability to reason and think before speaking. He may legitimately not be able to help it. If that’s the case, he shouldn’t be on live broadcasts.

    Also in Bernie’s defense, the Rams are kind of terrible.

  20. rhabdodontidae says: Aug 10, 2013 9:29 PM

    Rams receivers aren’t horrible. Young and inexperienced, yes, but not untalented.

    Playcalling was vanilla, yes, but it was also the first preseason game.

    Clemens isn’t a good QB, but he still shouldn’t have ripped on him like that.

    A little dignity, Bernie, a little class.

  21. youarejealousof6rings says: Aug 10, 2013 9:29 PM

    “Kosar [...]suggested that the receivers’ parents should be ‘embarrassed’”

    HAHA, he just gained some respect in my book!

  22. takemytalentstosoutheuclid says: Aug 10, 2013 9:30 PM

    Maybe if Fisher worried more about the lack of talent on his team, than the Browns preseason color commentator, who by the way, is a freakin hero in Cleveland and has some severe post concussion issues that are well documented, then he wouldn’t have to make these sort of comments. What kind of NFL coach even gives a crap what the opponents tv crew is saying, especially in the preseason? Let’s just assume, Jeff, that Bernie knows a little more than you about what good QB and WR play is like, given that your pro playing career highlight is getting a Super Bowl ring with the Bears, despite spending the season in IR thanks to a hit from Bill Cowher.

  23. harbingeroftruth says: Aug 10, 2013 9:31 PM

    I watched that one too, however its hard to critisize someone when their analisys happened to be spot on. BK was calling their play book before they ran it.

  24. theuncletodd says: Aug 10, 2013 9:31 PM

    Truth hurts!

  25. takemytalentstosoutheuclid says: Aug 10, 2013 9:32 PM

    @fdugrad-

    Bernie has been doing the preseason games since 1999. This is nothing new. He is what he is. Imperfect? Yep. But he is a legend in this town.

  26. ohmygawd718 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:34 PM

    People usually get upset when someone is critical of them…..and it’s true.

  27. folkcrusader says: Aug 10, 2013 9:35 PM

    Well, the Rams passing game looked pretty anemic. But Bernie, it’s pre-season game one. Come on, man.

  28. brownandorange1989 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:36 PM

    Who cares?!? We’re too sissified as a country. Bernie does 4 preseason games a year for the Cleveland market only. He isn’t on CBS or Fox every Sunday covering all teams. The Rams receivers sucked and dropped a ton of passes. I’m all for brutal honesty.

  29. brownsdawg1984 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:38 PM

    Bernie probably shouldn’t have been so blunt, but he also ripped Jordan Cameron when the ball hit him in the hands and deflected. Either way, no one can deny he’s an amazing X and O guy who calls plays out before the snap. One of the best

  30. smither871 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:38 PM

    He’s doing the broadcast because he is very intelligent and understands the game. He had a lot of great things to say about Bradford too! He is brutally honest and has made the same comments about Browns players in the past. Fisher has a lot more to worry about than Bernie’s comments

  31. kane337 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:42 PM

    Bernie does cross the line sometimes but I enjoy listening to him on the air. He will talk about formations and looks pre-snap and educate you on the what the offense or defense is trying to do. With that said he needs to tone down on the derogatory comments. It’s not necessary.

  32. theuncletodd says: Aug 10, 2013 9:43 PM

    @fdugrad–you are an idiot plain and simple. BK has been the ‘color’ guy for years on TV in pre-season. His concussions have been well documented and the success with the new treatment he has had is amazing. BK is BLUNT and smarter than you and me combined—still! Unless you are familiar with the facts, (you appear ignorant), shut your pie hole!

  33. tmoore94 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:43 PM

    Since 2004, Jeff Fisher’s record is 61-66.

    I think he probably should have other things to worry about than the color man on a preseason game.

  34. ohiogator says: Aug 10, 2013 9:44 PM

    Gotta love Bernie! Sorry fisher the dude speaks his mind. Haha

  35. turkjones says: Aug 10, 2013 9:45 PM

    In my opinion, it’s okay for the home team preseason color guy to be a bit of a shill. Bernie may have his warts but the majority of us Browns fans enjoy hearing him 4 times a year and that’s enough to justify his employment.

  36. mrlaloosh says: Aug 10, 2013 9:47 PM

    It’s not as if Kosar pointed out that Fisher is the originator of the “bounty” program that he taught Gregg Williams. That’s certainly not relevant. If Fisher wasn’t a Goodell suck-up he’d be suspended indefinitely from the N F L.
    Besides, it’s the BROWNS & RAMS! Who cares.

  37. comatrip1 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:49 PM

    he needs to go to Hell. Bernie is a legend in Cleveland. one of the smartest QBs of all time. Blue collar man for a blue collar town. He’s entitled to his opinion.

  38. acinsd says: Aug 10, 2013 9:54 PM

    Before people rush to cite Bernie’s “personal issues” (which yes, he’s had many), understand this is the way he has always been. If you thought his criticisms were bad Thursday night, you clearly weren’t watching him do color commentary on a Pat Shurmur called game. Bernie calls it as he sees it, and if you ever saw him play the game he sees it pretty well. (Slowest and most awkward throwing motion in the past 30 years, but still did great until his arm injury)

    Keep calling it like you see it Bernie. Nobody in the media has the stones to do it!

  39. blazertop says: Aug 10, 2013 9:56 PM

    Browns, who cares?
    Rams? Wake me up when you move back to LA

  40. mwitt5148 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:00 PM

    I didn’t see the alleged clip but if he did say the Rams receivers parents should be embarrassed he needs to look in the mirror. Apparently one of his daughters is a porn star.

  41. mwitt5148 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:07 PM

    Also worth noting. I saw him call as Browns and Eagles preseason game and his lack of knowledge about anything outside of the Browns was pathetic. A lot of other teams have well informed people doing those broadcasts. The Eagles have Brian Baldinger who breaks down tape of all teams for a living and one year they had Greg Cosell up there who does the same.

  42. djeg07 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:12 PM

    bernie is still the best offensive mind around
    anyone who watches the games will notice the bernie calls the defensive plays well before the play. he ripped the qbs for not noticing an easy blitz or coverage. Bernie may be no saitn but fisher is a complete colonoscopy bag.

  43. russianrebel711 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:14 PM

    Hey Bernie! How’s Lexxi doing? ;)

  44. camdenyard says: Aug 10, 2013 10:14 PM

    Kosar’s brain is fried. Living in Cleaveland will do that to ya.

  45. rampage1999 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:16 PM

    The Rams WR’s parents “should be embarrassed” hu h?

    Well,well,well….now isn’t that quite interesting, and hypocritical I might add.

    Did you know that Kosar’s daughter does PORN? Her screen name is Lexxi Silver. Did you also know that Kosar filed bankruptcy?

    I’m thinking YOU should be embarrassed Bernie.

  46. dwatkins69 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:16 PM

    Great , Not only do we not want to hurt little kids feelings. We shouldnt hurt grown men as well

  47. kingpel says: Aug 10, 2013 10:19 PM

    I am a Ram fan and the only reason I watched into the 4th quarter of this pre season game was because of Bernie’s drunken ramblings. Words don’t hurt anybody. He was funny.

  48. purplepride4ever says: Aug 10, 2013 10:20 PM

    Embarrased Kosar? You should be embarrassed for having a daughter who’s a porn star. That’s right in case you guys don’t know….Kosars daughter is a porn star and her name is Lexxi Silver.

  49. vegasdogg says: Aug 10, 2013 10:21 PM

    If Bernie called something out it is more often than not pretty accurate. His health has drastically improved over the last 8-12 months, and I gather he is more clear headed now than ever.

    Point is he laced some biting comments with some tongue-in-cheek humor and Fisher got over-the-top upset.

    To me it’s rather telling that a “tough” HC like Fisher is commenting about how his feelings are hurt and he won’t be sending a Christmas card to Bernie.

    Better toughen up buttercup. Some tough divisional games this season.

  50. rampage1999 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:21 PM

    Any “parent” that has a daughter doing gangbang porn with a bunch of black guys, and filed bankruptcy after making tens of millions of dollars – is about the worst parent ever.

    Did this drunk Kosar think the graveyard in his closet was going to be ignored?

  51. haywoodjablomee says: Aug 10, 2013 10:22 PM

    Note to Jeff; not a lot of people respect you either.

  52. vegasdogg says: Aug 10, 2013 10:23 PM

    LOL. Too many of you have entirely too much inside knowledge of porn star actresses.

  53. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Aug 10, 2013 10:24 PM

    I didn’t hear this broadcast but now I wish I had heard it. I love that brutal honesty coming from Kosar as long as the dude can back it. Refreshing.

    I’m more disguted with Fisher (Goodell’s boy) for making it personal by going after Kosar’s “issues”. If you didn’t like Kosar’s comments, fine just say so. No need to get nasty Fisher.

  54. craigmaitland says: Aug 10, 2013 10:32 PM

    He’s right though the Rams wrs are horrible… But the Rams as a team are much better than the god awful Browns. He should have ripped into the Browns but he wasn’t lying.

  55. istateyourname says: Aug 10, 2013 10:34 PM

    Bernie seems to be thoroughly versed in both football and parental embarassment (causing and suffering from) so its not like he didn’t know what he was talking about…so I got to go with Bernie and say those WR parents should be embarassed…Bernie Bernie ooohhh baby how you can throw yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!!

  56. raymondtx says: Aug 10, 2013 10:38 PM

    Sadly, I think bernie’s dad slapped him one too many times growing up.

  57. acinsd says: Aug 10, 2013 10:40 PM

    To everyone calling him a bad father about his daughter doing porn, she is doing this same thing your daughter does on weekends. She just gets paid. And for the people that know her screen name, enjoy Mom’s basement on this Saturday night. I heard switching to the left hand helps…

    As for these specific criticisms that Kosar is leveling: The Rams WRs ARE horrible. Tavon Austin is an excellent young prospect, but until he actually demonstrates competence at this level he’s still an unknown. Pettis is awful. Givens is a one trick pony. Cook is the king of overrated TEs and has done nothing in his career,people only think he’s good because he’s fast in Madden. In what world do we live in where Kellen Clemens isn’t a journeyman scrub? Hell, Kosar should have also called out Sam “Badd for Rams” Bradford for being an outrageously overpaid bust as well.

  59. ramsfanjoe says: Aug 10, 2013 10:45 PM

    Memo to Cleveland Clowns fans, um how many Superbowls have you guys been to in the last 40 years? Try ZERO!!!

    Lets see how well your players and coaches do when the games are REAL! It’s PRESEASON, you didn’t hear Fisher or anyone else say the Clowns were sorry, so show some CLASS Bernie!

  60. ramsfanjoe says: Aug 10, 2013 10:49 PM

    Hey Clowns fans, too bad the NFL gave you a team back after Art Modell Left you guys high and dry! How bout those Ravens!

  61. logicaldawg says: Aug 10, 2013 10:50 PM

    You people don’t know Bernie. Jeff Fisher couldn’t hold a stick to him.

  62. pthepro49 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:54 PM

    First of all its hard for me to take anybody, seriously who’s name is BERNIE!!! However since Bernie opened his mouth, what exactly did you accomplish in your NFL career? No Superbowl appearances, you were on the losing end to John Elway in the AFC Championship game not once but twice. Lets not blame the fumble or the drive, lets blame the guy who is responsible for leading that offence which was you, and since they had no faith in you throwing the ball with the game on the line, they were forced to hand the ball off to a very tired RB and BERNIE did not hand the ball off cleanly as he should have. It’s called KARMA BERNIE!!! Do the Browns a favor, stay away from their team, facility, anything that has to do with them, and I guarantee when you do that, the city of Cleveland including the Browns will actually WIN A TITLE……but remember BERNIE-you need to stay far away from Cleveland for that to happen!!! Do we understand each other BERNIE???????????

  63. dumbpollack says: Aug 10, 2013 10:56 PM

    Bernie was just speaking his mind. Of course he is bias. Screw you, Fisher!!!!!

  64. qdog112 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:56 PM

    I feel sorry for Bernie. He was drunk or is permanently punch drunk. He should not be doing color on radio or TV.

  65. joewilliesshnoz says: Aug 10, 2013 11:00 PM

    Looks like Bernie is talking out of his nose again.

  66. sjs5y7 says: Aug 10, 2013 11:01 PM

    I have great respect for Kosar’s career, but not the man I heard last night. Here are some comparisons to make… Sorry Browns fans.

    Clemens (Rams QB3) vs Weeden (Browns QB1) is a close matchup. That’s how bad Weeden is.

    Trent Richardson, even though he didn’t play, is about 3x the halfback that any of the Rams one, admittedly. You guys got that one.

    Both Ram’s and Browns’ receivers are inexperienced and have high potential, but none of the Browns ones can stay on the field.

    I can’t even name the Brown’s TE. I wanna say Watson? I’d take Cook any day, even if he doesn’t have production from his potential.

    Bottom line, it’s preseason everyone! They are supposed to look bad. You get better from mistakes. Hopefully we can say the same about Kosar’s broadcasting.

  67. sjs5y7 says: Aug 10, 2013 11:09 PM

    By the way, Clemens is not the guy who’s gonna be on the field. Bradford is, and he matched Weeden’s numbers with almost half the attempts. What does that tell us? That the first team Ram’s passing offense is about twice the Browns’.

    Congrats, Brandon Weeden and Brian Hoyer looked identical. You should have a QB battle.

  68. vincentbojackson says: Aug 10, 2013 11:09 PM

    Kosar earned the right to make those comments after taking the Browns to all those Superbowls during his playing days.

  69. jaggedmark says: Aug 10, 2013 11:12 PM

    As far as I can tell, Kosar didn’t say anything wrong. The Rams receivers have sucked for years. so everyone involved with the receiving game/corp gets blamed.

  70. richdaddy1231 says: Aug 10, 2013 11:23 PM

    Well what do you expect from an idiot former brown…ask him how many Super Bowls do the browns have?

  71. wgray981 says: Aug 10, 2013 11:34 PM

    He has suffered a lot of brain damage…I wonder why he is in the broadcast booth (I am a Browns fan and hear his incoherent thoughts every preseason…)

  72. chewingonlightbulbs says: Aug 10, 2013 11:35 PM

    The reason why Bernie is so damn entertaining to listen to when he calls a game is that he says what he thinks and doesn’t give the usual plastic “everybody’s awesome” analysis.

    And I doubt most fans have a problem with their local announcer trashing the opponent.

  73. hrdcorbengalsfan says: Aug 10, 2013 11:45 PM

    I’m a Browns fan and respect the historic players of this franchise like Bernie, but its time to stop letting Bernie do the pre season games or any games at all. This team doesn’t need anymore bad light on them then they already have.

  76. ramsnation88 says: Aug 10, 2013 11:47 PM

    Fisher is by far the dirtiest coach in the nfl and has been for well over a decade. If someone hurts his feelings, well good.

  78. ronvargasjr says: Aug 11, 2013 12:50 AM

    The Browns fans would not know a good wr if they saw one,web slaughter ? Thats the best they ever had.Kosar is a stiff with a permanent.Jeff fisher is doing his job and sticking up for a great group of young wr’s and Kosar is a hater because he has blown millions and is doing radio for 500$ a week.

  79. realfootballfan says: Aug 11, 2013 12:58 AM

    You know Bernie hit the sauce before he got on the air. Blame it on the alcohol.

  80. odawg15 says: Aug 11, 2013 12:58 AM

    It sounds like a lot of you haven’t seen too many Browns pre-season games. I don’t know if I could take him for a whole season, but I love Bernie in those games. The guy is a little blunt with his comments, but he also knows football and will point out where someone went wrong. Plus his comments sure make the 3rd and 4th quarters of those games more entertaining!

    Most of the time he is ragging on the Browns… we just happened to be playing some darn good football the other night. Bernie keep it up… I will have a beer with you anytime! Go Browns!!!

  81. hooterdawg says: Aug 11, 2013 1:09 AM

    Wow…there sure are a lot of Kosar fans on this thread. I suppose Brown fans feel it easier to defend the past rather than the present.

  82. patriots420 says: Aug 11, 2013 1:24 AM

    I would put Clemens on the same level as whoever the Browns trot out as their qb this year. The Browns are the only unwatchable team in pro football for the last 20 years to me. Absolutely noting interesting about them.

  83. fooath says: Aug 11, 2013 1:36 AM

    Need more announcers like Kosar not less. Nice to hear someone speak the damn truth and not super coat everything. Not everyone is great and amazing, GRUDEN. Keep saying what you feel and not what the NFL wants to hear.

  84. mrfrostyj says: Aug 11, 2013 1:41 AM

    How dare Bernie make up such lies like the Rams starting recievers weren’t playing well when they were being blown out 20 to 3 and turning over the football or that Kellen Clemens was a horrible QB in New York.

    We all know neither of those opinions are no where near accurate. Right Jeff?

    The #1 sign that a coach should be on the hot seat is when a Cleveland Browns commentator with “well documented issues” can pick apart every play he calls down to what reciever the ball will be thrown to before they snap it.

    Rams fans shouldn’t be too upset, Bernie might be the Rams next head coach.

  85. msclemons67 says: Aug 11, 2013 2:41 AM

    I was forced to drive thru Cleveland to get home the week after September 11 and I happened to catch the Bernie Kosar show. I still remember that because he was so incoherent I wondered how he managed to make it to the studio. You can only imagine the stuff that was flowing out of his mouth that week. It was like the drunk uncle skit from Saturday night live.

    Maybe Fisher should worry about his club, instead of what Bernie was saying. The Browns were leading 17-0, with 10:00 to play in the second qtr. They didn’t score until the Browns starters on defense came out, and Bradford still in at QB.

    All the home broadcasters are like that. During the skins titans game Keith bulluck and Eddie George were talkin about the titans offense like it was the greatest show on turf 99 style

    I love Bernie, but MAN…I like him breaking down the game, the guy IS smart, but c’mon dude, that doesn’t sound like a good sport, professionally speaking…

    Generally speaking an announcer should BE
    unbiased. Don’t get me wrong, Bernie is the man but I feel those comments were disrespectful. Bernie is not the first announcer to rip a coach or player and he certainly won’t be the last.

    There has been numerous times when I couodn’t watch the Cleveland Pittsburgh game on TV but listened to it on the radio in the garage. The local country station I listen to here in Youngstown is Froggy 95.1 and they broadcast all Pittsburgh games. Now you should hear those announcers rip on our beloved Browns, whats the difference?

    Bernie said it on live TV and them goofy announcers say it on the radio. See my point! OK I am done preaching. Go Browns and Bernie!!!

    Wow. Whoever had the idea to put Bernie Kosar on the air should be fired.

    Pretty sad franchise if all these browns fans are calling him a legend!! Thought “legend” was reserved for HOF’s. it’s not like he got you to a Super Bowl

    Jimmy Johnson would say Bernie is one of the most intelligent players he has ever been associated with.
    Also, he completed his degree in finance and economics in three years at the U…impressive given time commitments to playing football

    If the Fisher is getting hurt over what he says he needs to get over. Bernie also said that the Browns safeties were slow and he also said that Jordan Cameron should of caught a ball that was thrown right at him. So Chud should be offended as well in that case.

    The preseason is clevelands version of the playoffs.

    I am a lifelong Browns fan and always have had a lifelong dislike for Bernie Kosar. But I cannot believe everyone is surprised by his commentating. Improvisation has always been his achillies heel. Now like always, if it is not scripted for Kosar he is a clumbsy bumbbling mess as in his playing days.

    Jeff Fisher has the mentality of a cross between a high school football coach and a teenage girl. Why does anything Bernie Kosar says offend him? And was anything Bernie said not true? The comment about their parents being disappointed was a joke… get over it. Face the truth… The Ram’s WRs are not good. Bernie was right… and Bernie knew what routes they were running before they left the line of scrimmage. Does that make him ill prepared?? Jeff Fisher supposedly listened to the broadcast ( for what reason??) and though he heard a personal attack. His response? A personal attack on Bernie. Maybe Jeff should spend his time more wisely… then maybe he would be better than a .500 coach.

    I didn’t see the alleged clip but if he did say the Rams receivers parents should be embarrassed he needs to look in the mirror. Apparently one of his daughters is a porn star.
    ___________________________________
    Exactly…so if anyone knows how embarrassed a parent should be, it’s Bernie. I doubt highly he’s happy with his daughter’s choice of professions.

    Also SMH at camdenyard and others who live in bad areas ragging on Cleveland. I feel safer in Cleveland at night than I ever did in Baltimore and that’s not saying a lot. It’s not like either of us live places people like to go on vacation (without having a handgun) for goodness sakes.

    The Man The Myth The Legend…..Bernie Kosar!

  105. thuff18 says: Aug 11, 2013 4:04 PM

    The fact that this hack is considered a legend in Cleveland tells me all I need to know about Cleveland. The two deserve each other. LOSERS!!!

  106. fruitcovejag says: Aug 11, 2013 4:44 PM

    Stop crying Jeff! Now that’s embarrassing.

  107. 80sbroncofan says: Aug 11, 2013 6:17 PM

    What do bill belechik, art model, ozzie newsome and lebron james all have in common? Answer: They all won championships after leaving Cleveland. Lol

  108. arcaero says: Aug 11, 2013 7:42 PM

    You love you some you, Jeff Fisher! The third string special-teamer from the 85 Bears that is still riding the coat-tails of Buddie Ryan?? Mr. RayBan mullet boy? That Jeff Fisher??

    An average player and average coach living, the dream, is worried about the local broadcast during the first (road) preseason game?? He actually watches them?? Much more likely: One of his media cronies tipped him off …stirring that pot…

    Why don’t you worry about Arizona, San Francisco and Seattle, Jeff? Seems like you more than have your hands full there..instead of worrying about some honest comments by a local color commentator who was obviously playing to the home crowd TV audience..Sheesh…

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Bernie might be a hero in Cleveland, and it must be the result of all his success in the NFL, remember all those Super Bowl victories Bernie? Ah yes the good old days of mediocre success in this league, Oh you say we didn’t win a Super Bowl, must be the brain meds I’m on. This is why Cleveland fan’s are so happy with mediocrity, they have Bernie as a hero, come on really. So sad

  110. northerhorn says: Aug 12, 2013 10:52 AM

    Should have quit before that last hit Bernie, or a least when you were on top, oh yes that’s right Bernie you never were on top.

  111. gallogj says: Aug 13, 2013 9:53 AM

    Wait…didn’t your team lose TO THE BROWNS? Maybe Bernie wasn’t so far off on his comments. Just calling it like he sees it. I mean….they did lose TO THE BROWNS! The team that is always ranked bottom 3 in the NFL. Glass Houses Jeff Fisher…Glass Houses.
