Found August 12, 2013 on USA Sports 360:

The first mistake Jeff Fisher made was to bring all the attention to the things former NFL QB Bernie Kosar had to say about the Rams during the television broadcast last Thursday night. Koasr should be entitled to his opinions. The last time I checked we were living in the United States of America, the land of free speech. Kosar should be entitled to his opinions whether Fisher likes them or not. Fisher has taken this thing way to far. He probably called the Browns front office and cried like a little girl about the things Kosar had to say about his team. Now the Browns have taken action against Kosar and they made him call Fisher to offer an apology. Why? Why take things to this level. Kosar only stated an opinion and it was an honest opinion at that. It isn’t often when you hear a guy in the broadcast both tell you what he is thinking. Kosar did just that. Fisher needs to learn to ignore people’s opinions if he doesn’t like them. It is no different than fans yelling from the stands that a team sucks. What is Fisher going to do about that? Can he silence everyone with an opinion he doesn’t like? We all know that answer is no. Fisher needs to grow up and realize he is in the big leagues. Not everyone is going to have a favorable opinion of him or his St. Louis Rams. He needs to have a short memory and learn to let comments roll off his back. To take things to the level Fisher has taken Kosar’s comments to is totally unacceptable. Free Speech exists in this country. If you can take it get out……
