Bernie Says He Has an Interest in the GM Opening

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Bernie Kosar was asked on “The Really Big Show” with Tony Rizzo on WKNR AM/850 if he had any interest in being the general manager of the Browns. “Part of me wants to do it, but you have to see who you are working with and what say and what amount of organization and control and decision-making abilities you are going to be able to have,” Kosar said. Head coach Eric Mangini said he’s up for Mike Holmgren or any other person that can help the team win. “What I believe in is that anybody who can help us be successful, whether it’s a player, coach, whoever it is, I’m open to anybody who can help us improve,” he said. “We’re always looking to do that.”

    Please, NO! Get someone with experience and a strong personality that can keep Man-idiot in his place. That’s just for the GM role. We still need someone higher up that can direct everything above the trenches.

    This would be great. I can’t think of a better fit. quick, do it now while he can get help from Accorsi and has time to learn while we are going through all this mess anyway.

    Bernie as a GM is a joke. We need to get the Reghi and Jimmy Rizzo homers to get over their glory Bernie days and get some reality. Bernie can’t event manage his domestic affairs let alone run a professional organization. The man is bankrupt, owes the Browns one million dollars and just recently learned how to brew his own coffee.

    If he is serious about pursuing an opportunity in the NFL front office ranks, he should start out like everyone else: at the bottom!

    I’m getting real tired of you guys who don’t even know the guy trashing his personal life like you do know him. You hear ‘stories’ in the gossip papers and radio and fall hook, line and sinker for that crap. Bernie’s got more football savy than anyone on this team. If you’re too young or too slow to realize that, take a pill and worry about your own life, you who lives in a perfect world. If you had any maturity behind you you’d know it’s all crapola. AND, let’s hear your answer, oh football wizard.

    Hey Butchie:

    Maybe you missed the Miami Herald story on the guy. Here is a link if you care to check the fact:

    I wasn’t stating anything that isn’t factual or that he has himself admitted. His knowledge of the game is not being questioned. He has not demonstrated any capability to build an organization, evaluate talent, build rosters, etc. Bernie has tremendous football savy, what he does not have is front office experience. I am more comfortable in putting Mike Holmgren, Floyd Reece or Ernie Accorsi in that role first. Give Bernie a DVD player and let him do what he does best and that is to start evaluating who will be our next franchise quarterback.
