Peter King joined the cavalcade of football folks responding to the in-game comments made by Bernie Kosar during Thursday's game between the Browns and Rams. Nestled in the back of his billboard-slash-motorhome, King hacked out a few 140-character finger wags in between camp stops in St. Louis and Kansas City.
EARTH CITY, Mo.--My question for Kosar after comments in Cle-StL preseason game: Were you drinking? Good guy. But waaay over the top here.— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) August 11, 2013
Not to pick on King here, but you can just turn on location services and leave out the dateline in a tweet. BUT, man, for King to ask the "were you drinking" question ... you know Kosar's remarks were over the top.
Kosar called WRs, including 1st-rd pick Tavon Austin "horrible.'' Said their parents "would be embarrassed'' if they were watching game ....— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) August 11, 2013
Kosar on Kellen Clemens: "Bless me Father for I have sinned. I have to watch him the whole fourth quarter."— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) August 11, 2013
If Kosar's judgment has been impacted by concussions, then the Browns should be heavily criticized for putting him on a 3-hr telecast,— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) August 11, 2013
Don't go saying, "Bernie doesn't know what he's saying because of concussions." Doesn't work that way. If you're on air, you're responsible.— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) August 11, 2013
That's a good point he makes on the concussions issue. Why do the Browns have this guy on the air if he can't handle it? It's not like his track record in broadcasting is spotless.
Perhaps King can get Kosar, Clemens and Fisher to sit down and talk it out over a nice glass of Alagash White, or Starbucks for Kosar.
