Browns' Cribbs frustrated with losing
Thursday, December 1, 2011
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs is frustrated and "fed up" with losing.
In recent days, Cribbs has expressed his disappointment at Cleveland's inability to win and said he's tired of making excuses to Browns fans. Cribbs has also hinted that he's unhappy with his role in the Browns' offense. On Wednesday, he was asked if he was satisfied with his opportunities and he said after a pause, "I just won't answer that."
Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Thursday that he understands that Cribbs is upset and wants to win. Shurmur said his office door is open to any player who has a gripe, but that Cribbs has not told him that he's frustrated that the Browns aren't using him more.
Part of Cribbs' frustration could be that he hasn't been able to run back a kickoff for a touchdown in nearly two years. He holds the NFL record with eight kickoff return TDs.
