Default Cribbs to play RB for CLE

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/rapid-r.../post/16051334

WR/KR Josh Cribbs intrigued the media by stating that "something that's very special to me" has been installed into the offense and that he guarantees it will be seen on Sunday. Speculation with featured backs Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty out is that Cribbs will be used in the backfield. Browns RapidReports

He's a tweener anyway. He has enough size to play rb at 6'1" and 215. They need to get the ball in his hands because he is one of their few playmakers.

Exactly. Why restrict his play making ability by forcing him into a "position", like WR or HB? Just get him the ball.

Guys like Cribbs, R. Bush, and Sproles don't have a "position", so the best way to utilize their talents is to use them in a variety of ways.

McCluster from KC & Harvin are the same way. They are football players, period.... Casey is supposed to be the same for us, but he doesn't have the speed those guys have & you can't teach speed.

Default Re: Cribbs to play RB for CLE

There have been rumblings about this for a couple of weeks now. I was actually expecting to see him line up in the backfield against the Texans, at least for a couple of plays.

Browns receiver and return man Josh Cribbs appears to have given too much away when talking to reporters about Sunday’s game against the Rams.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Cribbs offered some hints that the Browns’ game plan will call for him to line up in the backfield, either as a running back or a Wildcat quarterback.

“I can’t give nothing away, but they put something in that’s special to me and that’s all I can say about that,” Cribbs said. “Coach is really trying to target me and the coaches are really making an opportunity for me to get the football more.”

Cribbs added that Browns coach Pat Shurmur is “warming up to” the Wildcat.

However, after stories appeared with Cribbs’ quotes, he claimed it was all a joke, and that he hadn’t really given away the Browns’ game plan.

“I was just kidding givin’em a good story lol there is nothing big for me in the package,” Cribbs wrote on Twitter. “I heard that some media outlets were fibbing fibbing fibbing, they put words in my mouth about some things.”

Although football players usually guard game plans like state secrets, the truth is Cribbs likely didn’t say anything that the Rams weren’t already preparing for: Every team that plays the Browns knows that Cribbs in the backfield is something they need to prepare for. Cribbs just gave the Rams a reminder.

Seems like a good move since he's not that good at getting open but he's really good at being fast.

Like secrecy is their biggest weapon or something. Anyone gonna be surprised if Arian Foster and Ben Tate run the ball next weekend?

no but if they do not run up another 200+ yards on the ground against a very bad Tampa Bay run defense, then I will be surprised...
