Cleveland Browns' Cribbs has eight TD returns (BIG WIN FOR BROWNIES IN K.C. MO SHOOTOUT!!!)
espn.com ^ | 12/20/09 | AP

Posted on 12/20/2009 1:25:23 PM PST by Chi-townChief

Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns against Kansas City, breaking and then extending the NFL career record.

After his 100-yard return in the first quarter broke the league record, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound veteran sped 103 yards in the second quarter.

His first return of the day was the seventh of his five-year career and broke the record he had shared with five others.

On that one, he broke free from at least six players who got their hand on him. In his second, he took the ball 3 yards deep in the end zone, cut left, then right and was hardly touched. The 103-yard return was a yard short of the Browns record. Cleveland's 269 yards in returns were a team record.

Cribbs came into the season with five touchdown returns of kickoffs and had a 98-yard return against Pittsburgh on Oct. 18.

Cribbs had been tied with Dante Hall, Gale Sayers, Mel Gray, Travis Williams and Ollie Matson.

The two returns in a game tied the league record.

If my priest had launched in to a wild cheer for the Browns in midst of mass, I'd have some choice comments for him afterwards.

The Colts are OK but they should have stayed in Baltimore instead of running like wusses in the middle of the night.

Eric was exciting but he didn’t seem to run forward too often.

Cribbs is a great all around athlete.

If only we had an offense. :(

Well, 3 TDs and 260+ yards from Jerome Harrison isn’t too shabby either!!! Quinn has to grow up and get in the game.

I guess if Romo can manage to develop Quinn can as well, but I’m not going to count on it

He does need time on the field, and a better offensive line.

It’s tough being a Browns fan LoL

Cribbs is a totally cool guy. He also threw an accurate 52 yard pass that should have been a touchdown, but for an excellent defensive play.

Metcalfe was good on punt returns, kickoffs not so much.

He also proved that Bill Bellycheck's theory of sending a 160 pound scatback into the interior line is not a good offensive tactic in the National Football League.

Oh yes, for sure.

Phillip Rivers is the best.

I wouldn’t trade him for ANY other quarterback.

I grew up on the Brownies.

Have supported them ever since I saw the Packers-Brownies games in the snow of long ago, sitting in front of a tiny TV tube with my dad & brother.

That was football.

It was a nail biter and Phillip Rivers deserves a much better offensive line, but they won and they won their division, so I’m happy.

Thanks BenLurkin. I’m glad you watched and enjoyed the game too.

The Chargers are the local team for all of SoCal.

Heck, even living back east as a kid we rooted for John Hadl and those UCLA style uniforms.

Ah, then you knew the Hadl to Alworth routine!

The Chargers used to play in Balboa Stadium, which served as my high school’s stadium too, so I’ve loved the team since they first came to town from Los Angeles. We’d get to see the players up close, but of course, we weren’t allowed onto the field while they were there.

Cribbs is a God-send! Without him we would be truly dismal. I do see a little hope for next year, and with an AWESOME new G.M. I see a big light at the end of a very long tunnel. I just want Brady to prove that he belongs with the big boys...he hasn’t shown me yet that he can shine. A few more recievers would help me decide.
