Kosar's Korner #19

Bernie! Bernie!

In 1985, Bernie Kosar's choice of Cleveland in the supplemental draft made him an immediate fan favorite. Cleveland intended him to serve as backup quarterback in his rookie season, but an injury to the starter allowed Kosar to assume the role as starter. Kosar quickly established himself not only as Cleveland’s permanent starter but as one of the league's top quarterbacks. He threw for 3,854 yards and finished second in the league with 310 completions.

In 1986, Cleveland took top seed in the conference with a 12–4 record. In the divisional playoffs against New York, Kosar threw for a playoff-record 489 yards in leading Cleveland to a dramatic 23–20 comeback victory in double overtime. His finest year statistically was 1987. In that strike-shortened season, he completed 62 percent of his passes for 3,033 yards and 22 touchdowns and led the conference in quarterback ratings. Kosar set a record for consecutive playoff games with at least three touchdown passes (3 games) having thrown three scores against both Indianapolis and Denver in 1987, and three against Buffalo in 1989. In 1990 and 1991, Kosar set a league record by throwing 308 consecutive passes without an interception, which stood for almost two decades. His friendliness with fans and on-field performance make him one of the most popular players in team history.
