Pardon me while I go against the grain for a moment, but I’m getting a little concerned about all of this Josh Cribbs exposure.
First, a disclaimer: I love how good this guy is, and how versatile. I love that he returns kicks (better than anyone), covers kicks, and can play receiver, running back, quarterback, and, yes, even safety.
He, as much as any individual, embodies the essence of Cleveland Browns football.
Did you read what he said recently?
"To be a Brown is to be bestowed with dignity and honor, and to be a part of rich history."
No kidding, that's an actual quote. And then:
“I say all the time, if our stadium was an island off the coast of Alaska, you’d see Browns fans in canoes rowing out to the games. It’s a way of life.”
The guy just gets it. No wonder Cribbs has supplanted LeBron James as the favorite son of Cleveland sports fans.
With that said, I could stand to see a little less of him.
