Former Browns QB Gets in Trouble Over Comments
Jack Clark apparently isn't the only sports announcer who suffered from foot-in-mouth disease this past weekend
Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar has caught the disease, too.
Kosar, who works on the television side for the Browns, blasted their pre-season opponent -- the St. Louis Rams -- for what he thought was terrible offensive play.
Here are just a few of Kosar zingers from the Browns game Saturday night.
After Rams wide out Nick Johnson dropped a pass:
“This is actually not a bad throw. These St. Louis receivers are horrible. That's a drop there.”
After Browns play-by-play man Jim Donovan told a story about Rams backup quarterback Kellen Clemens giving Pope Benedict XVI an autograph:
“Bless me, father for I have sinned. I have to watch him the whole fourth quarter.”
On Rams receiver coach Ray Sherman:
“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 not doing very good either.".
Yeah, Kosar was being a bit of an ass, and it caught up with him. Rams head coach Jeff Fisher had a few words for Kosar.
“I'm just surprised that Bernie has such a lack of respect for players and for this game,” he said. “So I lost a lot of respect for him."
Unlike Clark, Kosar gets to keep his job, but he was reprimanded by the Browns for his comments.
From the comments I've read from fans, sounds like Kosar should stay away from the sauce before he goes on the air. He'll save himself a lot of trouble.
