after looking at highlights from mr. cribbs, i came to conclusion that i would not want him as a 49er. most of his touchdowns are coming off of not so good teams like lions and kansas city. he is aslo not that big of a difference make that we would potentially get for like a c.j. spiller type player. dont get me wrong he is good but not great. he does not have that great of speed. the only thing that i noticed on his touchdown returns is that the blocking was pretty good on special teams that allowed him to escape. he can break tackles and seems like he has the agility/jukes. Joshua Cribbs 2009-2010 Season Highlights to view on youtube. dont know how to apply links but check out his highlights. i want a type a player that is a threat every kick return an punt return like devin hestner, reggie bush, and new comer percy harvin from the vikings. what do you guys think
J. Cribbs IS
a threat on every KR/PR! He doesn't need super fast speed like the ones you mentioned above as long as he has the vision, burst, break tackling ability, and the agility/jukes. Plus, he didn't just have great returns on teams like the Lions and Chiefs, he ran a few TDs back on teams like the Steelers and Ravens back in 08 and 07. Now that you mentioned it, he also had returns on the Steelers and Vikings THIS year.
