An obviously frustrated Josh Cribbs let loose on the coaching staff and whoever in front of him. He’s clearly not in a good place right now. Cribbs sounded off harshly to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plains Dealer, and didn’t pull any punches. "I've talked to the head coach but there's no point. Obviously they feel like everybody that's in front of me is a better athlete. I disagree. I feel a different way than the coach feels about me. They must feel I can't produce. We have a difference of opinion." "Me going from being able to run the wildcat, to playing receiver last season and catching 41 passes and four touchdowns to nothing. I can't believe it. It's like by me not playing, I feel like they think I'm not good, that I've lost it. But I haven't. I feel when I'm out there I can contribute, but I'm not able to." "I feel like I'm better than the next man, that man, whoever's in front of me, but I don't have that opportunity." "I can't even showcase myself. I'm more than a special teams player. I've proven that. I belong on the field more than this, more than what they're allowing me to do. I've tried not to say much, but it's upsetting. We're nine games into the season and I haven't gotten a chance."

  • Cribbs has been misused his wholw career. First- Who was the Rocket Scientist that decided he should be a wide-receiver in the first place? Where is that person today? I watched the guy RUN for 1,000 yards, and pass for 1,000 in one season at Kent.
    So the they make a receiver out of him, and claim it will take him 3 years to learn to run routes...During his years in Cleveland there have been times when he was the best QB on the roster (Anderson/Frye)...the best running back...and/or the best free safety. So the Browns use him as a wide receiver? One more question...Why isn't he the holder for FG/PAT? Wouldn't that give opposing teams something to worry about?
    GO CRIBBS! He just wants to win...what's wrong with that?
