Josh Cribbs drives really fast, too

On a day when there’s plenty of discussion regarding whether 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs was part of a high-speed police escort involving dozens of sports cars with obscured license plates, Browns receiver Josh Cribbs has been involved in a more conventional incident involving a car moving faster than it should.

According to FOX 8 in Cleveland, Cribbs was cited Friday night for driving his 2010 Bentley 103 miles per hour in a 60-mph zone on I-71.

Brandon Jacobs thinks Cribbs is a lightweight.

All (or at least most) kidding aside, most accidents happen when a car is moving faster than it should.  (I was just preaching that point to Florio Jr. while taking him to school today.)  And if a guy gets caught driving in excess of 100 miles per hour, chances are it’s hardly the first time he’s taken the speedometer into triple digits.

So, Josh, the next time you want to go really fast, try doing so with your legs.  And see if you can beat 31.

    Was this lecture worthy of a full-length post? Seriously, give the guy a break. Obviously speeding isn’t a great idea, but who wouldn’t hit 100 every once in a while if they were driving a Bentley?

    Have you ever driven I-71? If you aren’t doing at least 80 mph you’re just asking for someone to be grabbing your a$$. He was just going with the flow of traffic…

    Live fast, play fast, drive fast.

    Also on I-71, Bengals Owner Mike Brown commented that Cribbs was a menace, nearly side-swiping his 1937 Lincoln Zephyr.

    How does Josh Cribbs afford a Bentley?

    Who cares? Many ppl speed and a lot of those speeders do excess of 100. Why is this news?

    not saying its a safe way to drive but the make and model some players buy need to be aired out sometimes. u just cant break them in @ 55 miles/hour. mike u know its not safe to lecture and drive @ the same time.

    Maybe Cribbs was driving to his crib? He should post the speeding ticket on his twitter.

    “All (or at least most) kidding aside, most accidents happen when a car is moving faster than it should.”

    Bull. Nearly every accident occurs when the driver is distracted, even if for a second. Like when talking on the phone or lecturing his kid for example.

    That’s what tracks are for. A guy like Cribbs can afford a few days at one.

    actually accidents are cause by the magoos who drive too slow and occupy the left lane of the highway and hinder everyone else who is driving like a normal person should….or a bit faster.

    It’s Holmgren’s fault.

    Wow! No double standards with you people!!

    Get this criminal off the streets!

    On a serious note, say what you will about Germany, but they’ve got it totally right with their autobahn network.

    Speeding on 71, we all do it. And Josh wasn’t even picked up in Linndale.

  17. godofwine330 says: Apr 23, 2012 4:12 PM

    Awww, Linndale isn’t to be messed with. EVERYBODY puts the cruise control on 60 at Linndale. You see brakelights all over the place, and those that don’t soon find out (you always notice the rookies on 71 that don’t slow down). How a city that you can drive through in 5 seconds writes the most tickets of any city in Cleveland is just…wow.

    Slow down, Josh…or get a radar detector.
