Cribbs anxious to run Wildcat against Steelers
October 13th, 2010

Browns coach Eric Mangini appears to have limited options at quarterback with his team preparing for an AFC North game against the Steelers.

One way Mangini could go Sunday with Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme unlikely to play because of ankle injuries: employing the Wildcat on an extensive or even full-time basis.

Cleveland multi-purpose threat Josh Cribbs triggers the Wildcat, and he said that the Browns could run the gimmick offense for the entire game Sunday if that gives them the best chance of beating the Steelers.

Its a full package, Cribbs said of the Wildcat today during a conference call with Pittsburgh reporters. Its not like last year, a week to week thing were we were putting in new plays. Its more than enough to run a complete football game out of it.

As for the obvious question as to whether he could physically hold up for an entire game while running the Wildcat, the 6-1, 215-pound Cribbs said, The hits aint nothing. I love it. Im not too fragile at all.

Mangini did not question that about his most explosive offensive player.

He did sound hesitant about using Cribbs extensively in an offense where Cribbs would take a direct snap and seek out running lanes against the No. 1 rushing defense in the NFL.

He does have the kickoff return, the punt return. Hes playing a decent amount at wide receiver so we have to monitor his reps in order for him to be effective how we want him to be effective over the course of the game, Mangini said. Hes a pretty special guy with the ball in his hands.

Which is why Cribbs will take his share of snaps Sunday at Heinz Field.

Gotta love the confidence of this STAIN!! Can't wait to see how unfragile he is after the game.

I think our D is prepared to shut this down this year. Without any passing threat whatsoever, and Hillis banged up the Browns are extremely 1 dimensional. If Cribbs ends up running the Wildcat most of the game, I think he's in for a long, painful day.

I agree that Cleveland's offense should be awfully limited this week. I always get that "Please don't let us make this kid look like the second coming of Sipe or Kosar in their prime". I don't want to see Cribbs get his knee blown out but I would like for him to wake up on Monday and be in so much pain he can't get out of bed though.

"So, uh Josh, welcome to the middle of the field, meet Lawrence Timmons"

Yeh, I am with you all here. I see Cribbs returning alot of Kicks in my opinion. About the 10th time he takes that snap and gets creamed he will be getting very hesitent to do it again I promise you that. He wont last the entire game if he carries that much.
So All I Know To Tell Him and The Brownies Is . . . .

"BRING IT ! ! !"

he's actually a good guy.. i don't want to see that happen.


I think the Browns are forgetting we will have our two wildcat killers healthy for the game this time. Our homing missile Troy Polamalu and the best gap plugging lineman in football, Aaron Smith.
