A.L. Casoni presents "Pay him, pay that man his money"

KGB said it best to his boy Grandma in the movie Rounders after Matt Damon straight served him at the hold 'em table. "He beat me. Straight up. Pay him, pay that man his money." What more does Josh Cribbs have to do for the Browns to pay that man his money? 2 kickoff returns for touchdowns in 1 game? Apparently not enough. The all time NFL record for most kickoff returns for touchdowns? Apparently not enough. Play receiver, running back, punt returner, kick returner, and be on the punt/kickoff teams? Apparently not enough. I know the Browns just took a huge step in the right direction by getting Holmgren, and I am so happy about that. The guy doesn't put up with any crap, and I truly believe he will get this thing going in the right direction. Want to win over the fans Mike? March yourself and your beard into Lerner's office and demand a contract extension for Cribbs. There are 32 teams in the NFL, some bad, some good. Every single team in the NFL wants Cribbs, and its evident. The only thing the Browns are accomplishing by not signing him now is that they are losing more money. Seriously. The guy is making himself more and more money by not signing an extension. You know what the sad thing is? The guy actually wants to sign an extension with the Browns. Its on management, not the player. Nearly every other Brown wants to be so far away from Cleveland, and this guy, arguably the best athlete on the team, wants to be here. I'm going to throw this out there, and you may or may not agree with it, but Jimmy crack corn. Josh Cribbs is one of the top 5 most "explosive" players in the NFL. That's correct, explosive. I didn't say he was one of the best, or I didn't say he was the most gifted, I'm just saying explosive. There are like 9-10 guys in the league who every time they get the rock, they have the ability to take it to the "Cribb". He is one of those guys. Chris Johnson comes to mind, Adrian Peterson, Brandon Marshall, Larry Fitzgerald, and a few others. That is some great company. But no, he doesn't warrant an extension, no. A few other things about the game besides Cribbs? You have to mention Jerome Harrison. I mean 286 yards is very impressive. However, that defense of the Chiefs was bad, really bad. I am not taking anything away from Harrison. 286 yards is frickin unreal, but he had some help from a poor defense. Quinn was bad, he just was. 60 yards throwing and what, 41 points scored? Who can we thank for that? Oh ya, the guy who isn't resigned yet, that's who. Do it Holmgren, do it. Bacardi and cola do it.......
