Thread: Joshua Cribbs= Poor Man's Devin Hester

    Default Joshua Cribbs= Poor Man's Devin Hester

    Anyone else agree, or even know who this guy is?

    Everytime the Browns play the Steelers this guy absolutely TERRIFIES me. While I appreciated his big game this week due to my starting him on one of my Fantasy teams on a whim, a 90 yard return early in the game, and then a 100 yard TD that he bobbled on his own goal line.

    I have no idea why Cleveland doesn't look to get him the ball on offense more. They did surprise me today scoring as well as they did, they didn't move the ball that much (Cribbs actually had more return yards than they did total offense) but they put the ball in the end zone when they had opportunities.

    The have tried a few gimmick plays with him (he was the QB at Kent State) but have not tried to incorporate him into the offense in a traditional manner. So when he comes in, the defense can be alert for reverses to him or passes off a reverse or pitch. To get him in on offense, he would have to take the place of the fullback. Otherwise he would be replacing one of the three receivers (Edwards, Winslow, or Jerivicius). I suspect he can't run routes like them.

    He amazes me on the kickoff returns. He is not the fastest guy in the world or the "shiftiest". It is much more subtle. It's how he uses blocks and "economic" changes in direction, all the while "picking up steam". It's really pretty masterful.

    I wish that Devin Hester would have looked more like Devin Hester yesterday. He was neutralized by the Raiders - THE RAIDERS. He did have a 63-yard return that was called back because of a holding call, but seriously.

    Cribbs' returns should have won the game for Cleveland against Pittsburgh. His returns yesterday against Baltimore in the fourth quarter and OT DID win the game for the Browns. That and some blessed officials willing to overturn a mistaken call on a field goal. 306 total return yards for Cribbs (245 on KOs and 61 punts).

    I remember when Cribbs came to the horseshoe a few years ago with Kent. He scared the crap out of me then. It's good to see him prosper in the NFL.
