Browns veteran Josh Cribbs lashed out at fans on Twitter after the Browns 34-12 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, making it clear that his frustrations had reached a boiling point.
I see all the negativity on Twitter after I gave my life to this [crap], Cribbs wrote. So [to] all [you] who are against me [screw] all yall! Im still gonna do me!
Cribbs, a special-teams ace, later deleted the message and followed it by trying to explain himself in a series of other tweets.
We battle like gladiators on the field every week [and] we put our all out there, he wrote. So [to] come off the field to the BS [people] put on twitter
[To] all Browns fans who are with us win or lose, we got [the Pittsburgh Steelers] next week [and] this loss makes us hungry for a W!!!
Yeah, I had a moment. [Shaking my head].
I [forgot] each day there are a new breed of haters out there disguised as fans!
The Broncos muffed two punts but recovered both. Cribbs muffed one, and the Broncos Lance Ball recovered the fumble at Clevelands 19-yard line. Three plays later, fullback Jacob Hester ran for a 1-yard touchdown to give the Broncos a 30-6 lead with 12:11 left in the fourth quarter.

Following a profanity-laced tirade aimed at the vocal minority of more-than-likely anonymous “fans” who think it’s acceptable to call professional athletes derogatory names behind the comfort of a keyboard, long-time Cleveland Browns return man and wide receiver Josh Cribbs is trying to make amends, at least to the decent human beings.

“He just plain out sucks!” That is starting to be the consensus in the Cleveland Area. Fans that jumped on the Brandon Weeden band wagon are ready to jump off. They didn’t like the ride and they have seen nothing but regression coming from the 29-year-old failing quarterback who already failed to make a career for himself in major league baseball. The Cleveland fans were let...
The Broncos are a playoff team fighting for the number one seed in the conference. The Browns are a 5-10 team several pieces short of contention. These were the facts going into the game, and they certainly haven’t changed.
