Josh Cribbs Joins Browns As An Intern Coach

Josh Cribbs

While many Browns fans expected Josh Cribbs to play for Cleveland, it looks like he will instead be coaching the Browns. He’s joined his old team once again, having left the organization back in 2012. This time, though, he’ll be a special teams coaching intern working under Hue Jackson.

Jackson said that he wants to put Cribbs in a position where he can be successful and learn more about what it takes to coach players on a professional team. He was impressed with the way that Cribbs wants to strengthen the Browns organization. Having been a successful return man, it looks like Cribbs has plenty of personal experience that he can apply to his new career as a special teams coach.

Cribbs originally applied to be an assistant, but the job was already filled by veteran coach Sam Shade. Jackson didn’t want to let the three-time Pro Bowler slip through his fingers, though, and it looks like the new deal should benefit both of them as well as the team. Jackson warned Cribbs about how long the hours are when you work as a coach, however.

Not everyone is cut out for the grueling schedule that coaches suffer through, but Cribbs has enough experience as a player as well as an analyst to know what that’s like. He provided commentary for the Browns on WOIO TV 19 last year, and he’s tied for the most kickoff touchdown returns in NFL history. Josh Cribbs joins Browns greats like Gerald McNeil and Dino Hall on a short list of the greatest special teamers the organization ever had, so he should be up for the challenge. If nothing else, then he should certainly find that he has an attentive ear from second-year kick returner Jabrill Peppers.

The Cleveland Indians Have a Fan In QB DeShone Kizer

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

With so much going on in the world of football it has to be hard for players to find the time for anything else, but rookie QB DeShone Kizer has found some time to help root on his city. Sure, the Browns are not starting off so hot this season, but that does not mean that Kizer has forgotten the things he loves to do.

Kizer was recently quoted as saying he, “loves the camaraderie they have in the locker room” about the Cleveland Indians. He is hoping to have enough time to attend a game or two this postseason and expressed sheer excitement about their upcoming games.

The Indians are certainly a bright spot for Cleveland right now since the Cavs are just getting the season started. Hopefully, for the city of Cleveland, they can have a deep run into the playoffs and then jump right to the Cavs continuing last season’s dominance.

NFL TV Ratings; A Sign Of Things To Come?

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Sunday for many people is a special day. Filled with family, friends, and possibly some yelling at the television. Football has been a large part of people’s Sunday traditions, but with things being the way they have been lately, many are wondering when the focus will return to actual football. It seems less has been made of the game, and more is being made about what President Trump has tweeted out about something or which players have decided to take a knee for the National Anthem.

Regardless of your personal feelings on these subjects it does come across as slightly foreboding when you couple that with the fact that across the whole board NFL’s TV ratings are down. Some might say that this is attributed to the ongoing spectacle sideshow that the NFL has turned into. Commissioner Goodell has not ended the stalemate with the player‘s union about proper procedure for pre-game policy, and continually rides the fence on the issue. This has further dragged on with President Trump now taking to the keyboard to weigh in his two cents worth.

The cold hard facts remain though that viewer ratings are down for every game except for the one o’clock slot. It might stand to reason that the games in that hour block did well because they were full of tough rivalry showdowns, or it could also mean that it is, generally speaking, a very boring time for television. Either way the games are getting less views, and you can be sure that trend will continue unless an agreement in procedure can be reached. Until then, we get to deal with a circus sideshow and the clowns in it.

Joe Haden Reveals His Next Move

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Joe Haden commits to Steelers for three years, $27,000,000 and will play Browns in opening game

Now, this ought to be a fascinating opener.

Joe Haden, the Pro Bowl cornerback, released by the Browns on Wednesday, has agreed a three year contract with arch rivals the Steelers. This deal is worth $27,000,000, including $7,000,000 assured for this season, reports profootballtalk.com.

No longer do the Browns have to pay the $4,000,000 Haden was due to receive from them this season.

On September 10, the Browns will play hosts to the Steelers at the FirstEnergy Stadium. This particular run of events should add some extra fascination to the match.

“A tough competitor” according to receiver Antonio Brown. “He is a ruthless opponent. Certainly someone you need to be prepared and ready for. He is quick and strong”.

Originally, Haden was meant to enroll with the Steelers on Wednesday evening in Charlotte, NC, which is where the Panthers and Steelers play tomorrow evening in the preseason finale.

Released by the Browns on Wednesday morning, Haden could enroll with his new team after 16:00, and his next deal was revealed within minutes.

Adam Schefter, from ESPN, said that Haden had been offered more by other teams, however he chose to commit to the Steelers.

For the last six years, Brown has faced Haden as an opponent, however he used his influence at the club to get him signed. The NFL Network reports that Brown told his coach that Haden still has lots of fire left in the tank.

Brock Osweiler Starts For The Browns

Brock Osweiler announced as Browns starter for the preseason opening match versus Saints

Brock Osweiler is set to start the preseason opening match on Thursday evening, versus the Saints at First Energy Stadium, according to Browns manager Hue Jackson.

The second man will be Cody Kessler, followed by Kevin Hogan and DeShone Kizer.

This does not mean though, that Osweiler will begin the season opening match versus the Steelers on September 10. Kizer could well end up doing that instead.

Jackson said that, at this point in the quarterback assessment process, he will have Osweiler start in the Thursday preseason opening match versus the Saints. While many factors are taken into account during the assessment, it is ultimately about running the offense effectively and efficiently, Jackson noted. Jackson went on to say that he wants his starters to have the ability to do this in all circumstances.

Osweiler has not really got any reps in the first team, so this will provide him with that opportunity. Everyone is looking forward to watching how he fairs in the limelight during the week and versus the Saints.

Speculation is rife that the Browns might be attempting to groom Osweiler for trading. However, on Monday, Adam Schefter from ESPN was interviewed on the Dan Patrick show. Schefter said that the Browns have declined trade offers and do not wish to get rid of the veteran.

Now that Osweiler has moved to number one, for this week at least, this does not look encouraging for Kessler, with regards to his quarterback ambitions this season.
