Browns move ball with aid of wildcat

By Stephanie Storm Published: November 16, 2009

When it comes to the 2009 Browns, you have to measure success in baby steps.

One baby step came Monday night against the visiting Ravens.  The Browns may have struggled to score again, but they were at least moving in the right direction by consistently utilizing  the Wildcat offense in the scoreless first half.

Asked earlier in the week why the offensive package is shelved for games at a time, Browns kick returner extraordinaire Josh Cribbs just shrugged his shoulders.

"I don't  know why that is,  that's not a question I can answer," he said.

Cribs said he makes suggestions to offensive coordinator Brian Daboll on when to use the Wildcat.

 "We've got a good relationship, we draw up plays together," Cribbs said. "It's essentially up to the line coach to see if those plays can be blocked. If we can protect the play well, then we'll have an opportunity to put it in in practice. If it looks good in practice, we add it to the game. If it doesn't, we'll scratch on it and go to something else."
