WR Josh Cribbs - Free Agent
|6-1, 192||Born: 6-9-1983||College: Kent State||Drafted: ---|
2013 Week 7 vs NE (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 3 / 14 / 0 rush)
After Clyde Gates suffered a season ending injury, Josh Cribbs was signed. Alike Gates, Cribbs was deployed strictly as a gadget player. The Jets gave Cribbs a few touches on end arounds and sweeps. Cribbs looked like a shell of his former self and lacked explosiveness.
2013 Week 9 vs NO (2 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec, 3 / 12 / 0 rush)
Josh Cribbs has become New York's Swiss Army Knife. When he isn't returning kicks on special teams, Cribbs is running routes and operating the Wildcat package. Cribbs participated in all three facets of the offense, including a halfback throw to Zach Sudfeld for a 25-yard gain. In addition, Cribbs gained nine yards on an end around for a first down. Cribbs isn't the explosive playmaker he once was, but on a team without many playmakers, Cribbs can generate yardage in a variety of ways.
2013 Week 12 vs BAL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 5 / 20 / 0 rush)
Cribbs is New York's Wildcat quarterback and also plays on special teams. During his team's first two drives, Cribbs took four snaps in the Wildcat and even completed a 13-yard pass to Geno Smith. Cribbs lacks explosiveness, but is still a shifty runner. Cribbs had a long run of seven yards where he ran off right tackle.
2012 Week 2 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Cribbs only catch came in the 4th quarter and he was lit up on a short slant but held on to the ball.
2012 Week 3 vs BUF (1 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)
The Browns appear content to use Cribbs as a special teams player, but he showed off his athleticism and quickness with a nice 24 yard catch and run. That was his only offensive touch in the game though. Given how young and inconsistent their other receivers are as a group, the Browns may want to give a proven playmaker like Cribbs more opportunities.
2012 Week 4 vs BAL (2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
Cribbs was just an outlet receiver before exiting the game on a very nasty play in the first quarter. Running back a punt, his helmet was knocked off by LB Dannell Ellerbe and his head bounced off the turf. Cribbs fumbled on the play.
2012 Week 6 vs CIN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)
Cribbs' only target as a wide receiver was a quick pass outside when Brandon Weenden threw a very inaccurate high pass. Cribbs laid out to get it but couldn't bring it in. Cribbs was given an end around in the third quarter when the play was designed for him to throw deep. Cribbs didn't see an open receiver so decided to sprint down the sideline for six yards with it instead.
2012 Week 7 vs IND (0 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
The lone play of note for Cribbs on offense came on a questionable penalty. Weeden threw a short touchdown to Ben Watson. On the play, Cribbs was called for an offensive pass interference penalty away from the play. It was a curious call as the penalty itself had no effect on the Watson reception and it was a minor infraction in and of itself.
2012 Week 11 vs DAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
In addition to his usual work on special teams, Cribbs had a single uncatchable swing pass target on offense.
2012 Week 14 vs KC (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 2 / 15 / 0 rush)
Cribbs had two carries out of the Wildcat. The first looked really disjointed and picked up three, but the second got him on the edge and he sprinted for a 12 yard gain.
2012 Week 16 vs DEN (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Cribbs' best play came on a 60-yard punt return, which was called back by a penalty. While the game was still in doubt, Cribbs muffed a punt, which staked Denver in the red zone in the second half. On offense, Cribbs saw the ball on a wildcat snap for a short gain around the edge.
2012 Week 17 vs PIT (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Cribbs came in late in the fourth quarter and had an eight yard reception at the sideline.
2011 Week 1 vs CIN (3 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec, 1 / -3 / 0 rush)
Was thrown to in the end zone but could not come down with the play. Cribbs is still mostly a special teams guy that makes brief appearances in certain situations on the offense. This writer does not feel that Cribbs will ever be a guy that you can rely on for production. However if you play in leagues that award points for return yards then Cribbs becomes a lot more valuable.
2011 Week 2 vs IND (3 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec)
Joshua Cribbs did what Cribbs can do best - try to make defenders miss in the open field. The Browns were able to get the ball into Cribbs hands several times with passes in the flat and simple screens, trying to use his agility and shifty running style to create big plays. He does seem very limited as an overall WR and will be limited production wise unless he can take a big step up as a reciever with his route running or create big plays in the open field.
2011 Week 3 vs MIA (6 / 3 / 49 / 1 rec)
Wide open on a 3rd and long on the 2nd drive of the football game. Cribbs had gotten behind the Miami secondary as many others have this season as well. McCoy simply overthrew him which is hard to do with a man of Cribbs' speed. 1 drive later and he missed a golden opp to make a first down and dropped a ball that was throw well to him. He made a circus catch in the end zone for a touchdown where he went up and took the ball before Sean Smith could really make a play on it. It was a fantastic play by Cribbs off a solid throw from Colt McCoy. Cribbs was featured a lot in the game and is definitely ahead of Brian Robiskie at this point. You can anticipate Josh Cribbs seeing more action and he might very well be available on some waiver wires.
2011 Week 4 vs TEN (8 / 5 / 50 / 0 rec)
Cribbs was utilized as a receiver and as a wildcat quarterback for the Browns against the Titans. As a receiver, he was effective in catching a number of passes as the second or third option for quarterback Colt McCoy. As a quarterback, he was sacked for a 10 yard loss, once again showing that the days of having a receiver line up under center may be coming to a close. Cribbs primarily runs crossing routes and quick outs and while Colt McCoy clearly trusts him to make the catch, Cribbs does not seem able to get clear of his defender enough to make anything happen in the open field. The Browns simply aren't giving him routes (screen passes, double-moves) that get him the ball without having to worry about a closing defender.
2011 Week 6 vs OAK (5 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
Cribbs saw the field when the Cleveland went to 3 wide receivers sets. Which unfortunately in this offense that is more predicated on the run should not happen as often as one would need for Cribbs to be fantasy relevant. Cribbs did have a couple nice punt returns and still holds some value with leagues that reward return yardage. With this offense it will be hard to support more than 1 fantasy wide receiver and 1 fantasy tight end.
2011 Week 7 vs SEA (6 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Cribbs was targeted six times but had very little to show for it. In the second half, McCoy looked his way more often, trying to get him the ball on short sideline patterns, but they simply weren't connecting. On the one pass that Cribbs did catch, the throw was not on the money enough to give him a chance at yards after the catch. Which is where his value lies, of course. Cribbs didn't even have a chance to shine on special teams as he usually does, since the Seattle offense was shut down completely.
2011 Week 8 vs SF (3 / 2 / 56 / 1 rec)
Cribbs had 2 nice grabs as both led to points for the Browns. The first one was at the end of the first half with less than 10 seconds on the clock, Cribbs got open on the sideline and caught the pass while getting two feet down just in field goal territory. The second was the touchdown pass where Cribbs made a great adjustment to a 20 yard pass as it was thrown to the incorrect shoulder. Cribbs jumped up for the ball, made the catch and then made the defender miss before he took it in for the score. Cribbs has dynamic playmaking ability and has the chance to score on any play but just does not get as many targets in this offense. Maybe this touchdown will help him get more looks his way that could lead to fantasy relevance as a wide receiver not just as a return specialist.
2011 Week 9 vs HOU (5 / 5 / 50 / 1 rec)
In addition to a couple of dynamic kick returns (he almost took one the distance), Cribbs actually acquitted himself quite well as a developing NFL receiver, proving to be the only Cleveland receiver who consistently gained needed separation and converting all his targets, including the 2-yard TD. He began the play on the right side of the field and cut inside on the snap, immediately changing direction again to the outside to get open in the right flat and catch the easy McCoy pass as he ran toward the right sideline. If Cribbs can continue to find space in zone coverage and work his way open vs man coverage, Cribbs has the skills to be deadly after the catch. Greg Little's development will be critical in drawing coverage to give Cribbs the matchup advantages.
2011 Week 10 vs STL (5 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec, 3 / 21 / 0 rush)
The Browns tried really hard to get Cribbs involved in the game early and often, with varying levels of success. His first catch was a swing pass in the flats and Cribbs showed his speed to turn it into a 20 yard gain, making 2 tackles miss in the process. He also had a big run on an end around, using his blockers well and was tripped up just as it looked like he was going break it for a touchdown. After a holding penalty, it was still a 15 yard gain. Cribbs other two carries came in the Wildcat and he had little to no success in that formation. Cribbs did drop one pass that he should have caught and his biggest impact was a negative, a fumble on a punt return that put St Louis in position for the winning score.
2011 Week 11 vs JAX (3 / 3 / 20 / 1 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Joshua Cribbs had a decent fantasy game on Sunday but it was the touchdown catch that really made it valuable at all. Cribbs was mostly completely invisible for this game. QB McCoy does not tend to look downfield for his WR and can rarely get him the ball in space where he can use his well known playmaking ability to turn something small into a big gain. Cribbs was able to haul in a decent gain down the field but was justly flagged for offensive pass interference which negated the throw. Cribbs showed some terrific footwork on his TD catch as the pass was thrown into a very small window against the sideline in the endzone and he did a great job to make it count. Cribbs otherwise made very little impact for his team. The running game and short passing game with McCoy doesn't leave a lot for Browns receivers to work with.
2011 Week 12 vs CIN (4 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
The Josh Cribbs project continues its bumpy journey along the road to the return dynamo making the transition to an NFL starting-quality receiver, as he only caught one pass to go with one rushing attempt on a reverse.
2011 Week 14 vs PIT (2 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
The last time Cribbs' name was heard in this game was on a drive that began with 13:23 in the second quarter. Cleveland should use their most dynamic offensive player more often than that. In previous matchups against Pittsburgh, the former college QB was used in wildcat formations and was able to make plays that helped Cleveland sustain drives. It seems as if the team is trying to use him as a traditional wide receiver, which could be a mis-use of his skills since he hasn't been a true wideout for very long.
2011 Week 15 vs ARI (1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Cribbs seemed to get lost in the shuffle out there on Sunday. He played on a lot of snaps but when Cleveland threw they were targeting either Little or Norwood. Cribbs is such an electric player that Cleveland should try to get him more than one measly target.
2011 Week 16 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Cribbs biggest play came on special teams with an 84 yard punt return that was flat out awesome. He made several miss before outrunning everyone to spark a Browns rally that would fall short. He also had two catches including one on a post 23 yards downfield. Mohamed Massaquoi- Massaquoi also made an athletic catch on the sideline that was ruled out of bounds in the second half, but he had two catches that were in the field of play. The first was a diving snag on a deep hitch and showed great hands. The second was an easier catch, and he did a nice job of getting up field for a first down afterwards.
2011 Week 17 vs PIT (10 / 7 / 91 / 0 rec)
Cribbs looked like his receiver skills are trending in the right direction. He made most of his yardage on intermediate-length routes where he was able to separate from his defender. Two of his catches for 37 yards, though, came against a prevent-style defense just before halftime. The presence of Ike Taylor shadowing Greg Little allowed him to be Wallace's most frequently-used receiver.
2010 Week 1 vs TB (2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec, 3 / 11 / 0 rush)
He simply is not a major part of the game plan. He was running the wildcat and had a rushing attempt on the 1st play of the 2nd drive of the game. He later ran a gadget play where he threw the ball to Senaca Wallace from the wildcat formation. Then other than punt returns he really didn't see a lot of action until the end of the 3rd quarter where he took a direct snap and then also caught a short pass on the same drive. The Browns failed to get Cribbs the ball in any space and as long as they cannot stretch the field these results should be expected and will continue especially against better talent.
2010 Week 2 vs KC (5 / 3 / 74 / 1 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Save for a 65 yard touchdown pass, Cribbs didn't do much with his targets (2 receptions for 9 yards). Cribbs is always a threat to break a long one on a rush, reception or punt return, but it's not going to happen all the time. Let's not get overexcited on this one.
2010 Week 3 vs BAL (8 / 5 / 58 / 0 rec, 2 / 20 / 0 rush)
Cribbs had his breakout game as a receiver. He made many heady plays, coming back to the ball when his QB was under pressure, and drawing a penalty on a wicked stop-and-go that might have lead to a long TD if he hadn't been held. Cribbs had very good timing with Seneca Wallace on short routes and also made a nice downfield catch on a ball that was competed for in tight coverage. Cribbs also got a tailback carry, and his one wildcat snap put the Browns on the doorstep for a go-ahead score. He did leave the game late with an ankle injury, so check the injury report before trusting this newborn WR.
2010 Week 4 vs CIN (4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec, 3 / 9 / 0 rush)
Josh Cribbs was targeted through the air and on the ground and he had a little more success through the air. Through the teams Wildcat formation and on a end-reverse, Cribbs gained just nine yards on the ground on three attempts. Despite just two catches for 24 yards, Cribbs was targeted in the end zone near the end of the second quarter but couldn't pull it in for the score. He's a dynamic talent who seems to be growing as a receiver as he's getting much better at running routes and showing he has much surer hands than he has in the past.
2010 Week 5 vs ATL (5 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec, 2 / 11 / 0 rush)
Cribbs got free deep in the second half but Jake Delhomme barely overthrew him. He also bulled through a defender for a first-down reception and got outside on a few wildcat carries, but Cribbs did not get enough touches to have a big impact on this game. He did throw a very nice pass to fullback Lawrence Vickers in the red zone out of the wildcat, and with the Browns problems at QB, he might be doing a little more of that this coming week vs. the Steelers.
2010 Week 6 vs PIT (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 3 / 2 / 0 rush)
Cribbs was supposed to be the one player in this game that scared the Steelers, but he was knocked out in the first quarter due to concussion. This injury really limited the Browns' gameplan and hurt them on special teams as well.
2010 Week 7 vs NO (1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Cribbs has had opportunity after opportunity to make an impact on offense and continues to fail to do so. Only one reception in this game, and at this point, he only has any value in leagues that count return yardage.
2010 Week 9 vs NE (3 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec, 2 / 2 / 0 rush)
Cribbs ran the ball infrequently on offense for the Browns out of the wildcat and it never looked like it was a real threat to explode for a big gain. Cribbs had a very nice diving catch off a well thrown McCoy pass, but did little else for the Browns in terms of productivity.
2010 Week 10 vs NYJ (1 / 1 / 37 / 0 rec, 1 / 14 / 0 rush)
Cribbs left the game in the second quarter with four dislocated toes and did not return. He was able to 14 yards on a reverse and caught one long ball, but otherwise was unable to contribute due to injury.
2010 Week 12 vs CAR (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Cribbs got back on the field for returns, but wasn't quite as explosive as usual and eventually gave way to Clifton Smith. He needs more rest before he can contribute on offense again, and he can be dropped in all but return yardage leagues.
2010 Week 15 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Cribbs had just one catch in this game - a quick out to him late in the second quarter where he tried to work up field and was tackled after just a four yard gain. McCoy tried to go to him earlier in the half, but the defender made a great play and the ball fell incomplete.
2009 Week 1 vs MIN (3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec, 3 / 6 / 0 rush)
Cribbs started this week and took all of the snaps opposite Braylon Edwards. He also saw three snaps in the Wildcat package at quarterback, running the ball on all three snaps. Two of those snaps came near the goal line, but Cribbs was unable to score. Brady Quinn targeted him only three times, preferring to check down to his underneath receivers. Cribbs again showed his electrifying kick return talent, returning a punt 68 yards for a score.
2009 Week 2 vs DEN (7 / 5 / 22 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
The Broncos did a good job of containing Josh Cribbs returning the football, and he didn't do much as a receiver either. They initially tried to get Cribbs the ball on the outside with short passes, but the Denver cornerbacks (including Champ Bailey) did a good job of wrapping him up before he could use his dangerous open field moves. The Browns also tried to get Cribbs involved on end-arounds, but the Broncos did a good job of sniffing that out. When the plays to the outside clearly weren't working, the Browns looked to Cribbs on short passes over the middle. This time the Broncos linebackers did a nice job of covering Cribbs, and would promptly tackle him after the catch. Cribbs even got crushed by Elvis Dumervil in the third quarter, where his fumble set up a Broncos field goal. Brady Quinn's lone interception of the game was a pass intended for Cribbs in the fourth quarter with less than one minute left.
2009 Week 3 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Targeted only twice, Cribbs was again not a factor in the Cleveland offense. Both Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson preferred check down targets to Cribbs' downfield routes. On his lone downfield target from Anderson, Cribbs didn't drive back to the ball hard enough and the pass was incomplete.
2009 Week 4 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec, 1 / 15 / 0 rush)
Cribbs saw little playing time in the base offense, as Mohammed Massaquoi started and played extremely well opposite Braylon Edwards. The Browns didn't line up in the Wildcat against Cincinnati, but Cribbs did get one rush attempt on an end around that went a long gain. He remains very effective on returns.
2009 Week 5 vs BUF (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 31 / 0 rush)
Cribbs had a nice 31-yard run, but failed to do any damage as a receiver, and did not have much opportunity to do so. Which is a shame, because his run was one of the few exciting moments of the game.
2009 Week 6 vs PIT (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 6 / 45 / 0 rush)
Cribbs took the majority of snaps as the team's second wide receiver, but was only targeted once. Cribbs did take 13 direct snaps in the Wildcat formation and was able to break two long plays on the sweep. He also threw a bad interception deep in Steelers' territory, however, which could limit the Wildcat in future weeks.
2009 Week 7 vs GB (2 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
The Browns only rarely aligned in the Wildcat package this week, limiting Cribbs' touches. While he aligned as the team's second wide receiver often, he was only targeted once. The completion was short and Cribbs fumbled the ball away when he turned to move upfield.
2009 Week 8 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 23 / 0 rec, 6 / 28 / 0 rush)
Cribbs was again effective out of the Wildcat package, particularly on the power sweep. Like Jamal Lewis and Jerome Harrison, Cribbs rarely had running room up the middle. Cribbs got open in the flat after a play action end around play and took a short pass up the sideline for his only catch of the day.
2009 Week 10 vs BAL (6 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec, 6 / 34 / 0 rush)
Cribbs got some work in the wildcat, but not nearly enough as he is definitely the Browns most dangerous player on the offensive side of the ball. He gained 34 yards on his six carries, including an end around that actually worked, and he also got multiple targets as a receiver. Cribbs was down for a while after the last play of the game, but it looks like he'll be okay. If the Browns were sane, they would use Cribbs on at least 15-20 snaps as the wildcat QB, and make sure he touches the ball at least 15 times a game, but their coach is Eric Mangini, so his fantasy value will continue to be marginal. Just remember that he has the ability to do a lot more if he is ever given the opportunity.
2009 Week 11 vs DET (2 / 2 / 39 / 1 rec, 4 / 16 / 0 rush)
Cribbs saw fewer snaps at WR than in previous weeks but made the most of them. He turned a bubble screen into a 35 yard gain, breaking tackles down the sideline before being knocked out of bounds inside the five. He then got open in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. Cribbs remained effective out of the Wildcat formation, running hard both on the sweep and power for good gains.
2009 Week 12 vs CIN (4 / 3 / 7 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Cribbs ran relatively few Wildcat snaps this week and was stoned on the lone rushing attempt from that formation. He was able to complete a throwback pass to Brady Quinn after starting to run a sweep. The Browns tried to get Cribbs the ball on quick routes and a bubble screen but the Bengals did an excellent job of keeping Cribbs in front of them and making sure tackles.
2009 Week 13 vs SD (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec, 4 / 38 / 0 rush)
Cribbs didn't do much in the passing game, catching just one pass all game long - it came on a fourth down grab late in the game, and he showed terrific hands to bring it in for the short gain. However, he made a nice impact with four carries in the rushing game for a team-high 38 yards. He typically was able to make the first guy miss, and picked up thirty of his 38 yards down the sideline out of the Wildcat formation.
2009 Week 14 vs PIT (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec, 8 / 87 / 0 rush)
Joshua Cribbs was the Cleveland offense in Week 14, either as a rusher or as a kick returner for the Browns. Cribbs lined up at least eight times in the Wildcat formation, taking several direct snaps and running for big chunks of yards at a time when he was able to get around the corner. Twice in the second quarter he ran for over 20 yards, quickly changing directions and exploding into the open field. Cribbs also broke off a big punt return in the first quarter, putting the Browns in the Red Zone and setting up their first field goal. Not only was Cribbs the best player on the field for Cleveland, he looked to be the most dynamic player on either side of the contest. Expect him to get plenty of chances to touch the ball in multiple ways in Cleveland's final three games.
2009 Week 15 vs KC (1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec, 3 / 8 / 0 rush)
Cribbs barely got to touch the ball on offense, but he did throw a very accurate deep ball out of the wildcat to Chansi Stuckey that was broken up, and he threw his body around to get what yards were there when he ran. Cribbs did affect the outcome of the game with two terrific kick off return TDs, both 100+ yards. On one, four different Chiefs had a shot at him, on the other, none of them touched him. He could be a great sleeper in fantasy leagues next year if the Browns ever give him consistent touches on offense.
2009 Week 16 vs OAK (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 4 / 21 / 0 rush)
The Browns called only a handful of Wildcat plays against the Raiders. Cribbs had one nice run off tackle for a 17-yard gain, but was kept to short gains on the rest of his carries. He was targeted only once in the passing game.
2009 Week 17 vs JAX (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 6 / 47 / 1 rush)
Cribbs wasn't targeted despite taking most of the snaps as the Browns' second wide receiver. He was again very effective out of the Wildcat, scoring a touchdown on a power play up the middle in which he avoided multiple tackles. He also added a 25-yard gain on an endaround.
2008 Week 2 vs PIT (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Cribbs was the kick returner and got his target on a wide receiver screen.
2008 Week 3 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
Cribbs was not used on offense much, being targeted only twice. He caught one ball for 17 yards, while the other target was uncatchable. The Browns did not try to get him the ball behind the line of scrimmage.
2008 Week 4 vs CIN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Cribbs was used sparingly, but started to run back kicks better which could lead to more offensive touches.
2008 Week 7 vs WAS (2 / 1 / 1 / 1 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Cribbs was decleated by a legal but vicious hit on his first target but contributed both with his kickoff returns and catching Cleveland's only touchdown.
2008 Week 8 vs JAX (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Cribbs was not much of a factor in the passing game, with most of his contributions coming on kickoff returns and kickoff coverage.
2008 Week 9 vs BAL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Cribbs did not see much time on offense, but did show off his return skills, with a touchdown and several good runbacks.
2008 Week 10 vs DEN (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 3 / 48 / 0 rush)
Cribbs made his biggest contribution as a kick returner and as a runner via some very successful reverses or misdirection plays.
2008 Week 11 vs BUF (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 1 rush)
Cribbs scored on a two yard run when the Brown's ran a reverse to him near the goal and he was able to dive in for the touchdown.
2008 Week 12 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 2 / 6 / 0 rush)
Cribbs saw some action at wide receiver and one play as a quarterback in the wildcat formation. It was a designed option with Kellen Winslow running an out pattern, but Cribbs ran it as Winslow was well covered.
2008 Week 13 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Cribbs was used again in the wildcat formation but failed to run for a first down as WR Syndric Steptoe missed a block.
2008 Week 14 vs TEN (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 6 / 24 / 0 rush)
Cribbs was not involved at wide receiver, but did have a play at quarterback in the wildcat formation. He ran the ball six times from the formation and was the most successful Browns player on the ground.
2008 Week 15 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 5 / 25 / 0 rush)
Cribbs came out of the backfield in the Wildcat formation once again, but only got five snaps from it. He did not attempt a pass but did look quick hitting holes.
2008 Week 16 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 5 / 32 / 0 rush)
Cribbs ran the ball from the wildcat formation five times and was quarterbacking it a handful of other times. He did not attempt a throw. It seems like he has lost his role as a third or fourth receiving option for the Browns.
2008 Week 17 vs PIT (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 2 / 7 / 0 rush)
Cribbs took several snaps in the Wildcat formation and even threw a few passes. Cribbs, a college quarterback, could not get any big plays however.
2007 Week 5 vs NE (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
The former Kent State quarterback averaged 23.6 yards per kickoff return, and also lined up a wide receiver and ran a reverse for 11 yards.
2006 Week 7 vs DEN (5 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)
Cribbs was targeted almost exclusively late in the game, and came down with most everything thrown his way. Cribbs was again successful in the kick return game, but struggled returning punts for the first time, fumbling his first attempt, and muffing one.
