If you missed it, Cribbs STUCK UP for his former teammate in the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Saturday, saying that he didn’t have an issue with the hit he laid on Cribbs which knocked him out of Sunday’s Steelers 28-10 win over the Browns.
“He plays to knock people out,” Cribbs told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “Wouldn’t you want a linebacker like that on your team? Honestly, a guy that you know is going to try to knock the key players out of the game?
“If he played for our team, we’d be applauding his efforts. You don’t want a guy to change his habits. And I’m just trying to be fair. He might come off wrong in the media saying he wants to hurt guys. But it’s two different things saying hurt and injure.”
Good for Cribbs. At least he identifies that Harrison isn’t a dirty player, which seems to be the stance that the suits in the NFL want to take over a guy that has fought to earn every award and compliment he’s ever gotten in the NFL.
