Josh Cribbs Was Just Joking About That Surprise Gameplan

Posted By on Fri, Nov 11, 2011 at 1:00 PM

Crap, I shouldnt have said that.
  • "Crap, I shouldn't have said that."

The Browns have negative-14 options on offense these days. Hillis is hurt, as is Massaquoi, and Hardesty. One playmaker that has been consistent each week has been Josh Cribbs.

Earlier this week, the media scrum huddled around Cribbs asking if No. 16 would get different looks in the offense this week. Maybe in the backfield? The Wildcat?

Cribbs said:

“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. Coach is really trying to target me and the coaches are really making an opportunity for me to get the football more.”

Attention, Rams: something special for Josh Cribbs. Be on the look out for that.

But a couple of days later, after maybe realizing giving away the offensive strategy wasn't a good call, Cribbs backtracked. On Twitter, he said:

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

Um, yeah, nevermind what I said a couple of days ago. Ignore that. Nothing special this week.
