Cleveland Browns Jerseys

Bernie Kosar, talks about Queen James Departure…

From Cleveland.com

“It brought back all the memories,” said the former Browns quarterback. “I saw the ball on the ground from The Fumble, the catch in the end zone at the end of The Drive… I even felt some of the same things that I felt when the Browns moved.”

“I had this sick sense inside, like when I was cut [by the Browns in 1993],” said Kosar. “All the old emotions came back, watching LeBron.”

“He’s from here [Akron],” said Kosar. “I really thought that as an athlete, your ultimate goal would be to win a title for your hometown team. That’s what drove me when I was with the Browns. I wanted to finish what I started.”

It never happened, as Browns fans know …

“The Drive, The Fumble …” said Kosar, his voice trailing off.

“I felt for [Cavs owner] Dan Gilbert watching that show,” said Kosar. “I think of all the money that he spent – he tried to win at all cost for the Cavs fans, the town and LeBron. Then to see LeBron was even willing to take less money and help Miami’s salary cap – that had to hurt.”

“I like an owner who cares, and Dan really cares,” said Kosar. “I think he wants us to know that he won’t quit, despite what happened with LeBron. It’s time for all of us in this town to rally around each other and our teams.”

“I’m disappointed by this,” he said. “I would have loved to sit down and talk to him. I tried at times, but I was never able to get to him. He has a lot of people around him.”

    the owner never should of made those statements, thats why the league fined him. He showed no professionalism towards a player that gave him 7 long years of winning. Its his fault that within the last four years of cleveland being a contender, the only person he brings in to assist LJ is SHAQ?? What in the World is that??? No love lost for LJ and I will continue to root for him (except when he plays Cleveland) and wish he acheive his ring dream!

    LeBron has chosen his path. Harsh words do no good, other than to briefly assuage some anger. Gilbert should have quietly moved on, after expressing shock and disappointment. It would have served him much better.
