It’s been a tough few days in Berea since the Browns 34-30 loss to the Broncos Thursday night. The team has been slammed by the national media, and most say that the season for the brown and orange might as well be over. The mood in the locker room has also been tense as well.
First you had Jamal Lewis saying that some players have to “check their egos at the door” (are you listening Braylon and Kellen?), and now Pro Bowl kick returner Josh Cribbs is speaking out. The KR/WR said today that he felt that some of the players quit on team the other night during the defeat.
“When you have a team like that that comes into our house and we’re capable of beating them, that’s the first thing that comes to mind,” Cribbs said. “We can’t figure out what man, but that’s what it looked like — some guys quit. … We know if everybody didn’t quit, we would have won that ballgame.”
It’s hard to tell who Cribbs may be speaking of, but only one can imagine it’s probably the defenese which allowed three TD’s in the fourth quarter to eventually lose. Cribbs had no problems though speaking in defense of Lewis, whose gotten a lot of credit for speaking his mind on the situation.
“He goes out there and busts his tail every day, every game, and I do the same,” Cribbs said about Lewis. “It hurts when people don’t do the same and don’t show the same will and don’t show the same fire and desire for winning. It’s a shame sometimes, but we just have to pull together as a team and weed out those guys and play the rest of the season out.”
Now the team with 7 games left will really show what they are made of. It starts a week from tonight in Buffalo vs the Bills, another team reeling after three straight losses, all against AFC East opponents.
