We’re celebrating the five scariest Cleveland Browns this Halloween
When you’re playing the Cleveland Browns, even in more recent years, you’re not usually thinking about the game-breaking, game-changing players that you have to gameplan for. The Browns, unfortunately, aren’t always known for such types.
In more recent years that’s changed, but historically, at least since 1999, the Browns have had very few players who have struck the heart and soul of an opposing team. That doesn’t mean they haven’t had any, however.
So this Halloween, we’re taking a look at the players that intimated opposing teams, if only for a few seasons. The type of players that when teams sat down to gameplan for, they took extra long talking about that specific player.
Honorable Mention: Joshua Cribbs
Josh Cribbs gets the honorable mention nod for a variety of reasons. The first reason why he only gets the honorable mention nod isn’t a great reason, however. Cribbs was great with the ball in his hands but as a quarterback turned receiver, he was not great at catching passes or running routes. So the Browns mostly used him as a return specialist or in gimmicky plays on offense.
That limitation hurt his overall evaluation on this list. Still, we’d be hard-pressed not to include him at all, because when the ball did end up in his hands, regardless of where or when on the field it happened, Cribbs was dynamic enough to make the most out of the moment.
