Former Cleveland Browns QB Bernie Kosar appeared on ESPN Radio Cleveland yesterday afternoon and gave a short, troubling interview where he audibly stumbled and slurred over his words.  Kosar was doing his weekly spot on The Hooligans when the conversation devolved into a series of incoherent comments from the former Browns legend.  Kosar talked about "franks and beans" and referred to "ducks and dynasty" and clearly was in no shape to be interviewed.  Host Bruce Hooley actually tried to cut Kosar off, but the interview continued for another couple uncomfortable minutes.   I've watched my fair share of Browns preseason games where Kosar serves as the color commentator and the jokes always go that Bernie sounds drunk.  He naturally tends to slur his words a bit when he speaks, but this goes well and beyond a joking matter.  Something definitely did not sound right in that interview.  Kosar has had some documented personal issues to deal with in the past, so here's hoping this audio isn't a sign of trouble currently facing Kosar.

  • I heard part of that and wondered if he had just come from the dentist. If under the influence of anesthesia, alcohol, or other, the screener should have alerted a station manager before putting him on air. That's unforgivable.
  • Bernie has had this problem for years, only it is getting worse. In my opinion it is either from numerous concussions or possibly pain pills from all of his pain from playing day injuries. I could be wrong; who am I to judge. However, if Bernie needs help I hope he gets it. Love the guy and his NFL career.
