Counting the votes
December 20, 2012 - Mike McLain
BEREA -- Joshua Cribbs was the leading vote-getter among fans for AFC special teams representative for the Pro Bowl.
The voting makes up one-third of the total. Player voting makes up one-third, and the other third goes to the vote of coaches. Players voted Thursday. The final selections will be announced next week.
Cribbs was second in voting for return specialist.
Kicker Phil Dawson and linebacker D'Qwell Jackson were second in voting. Offensive tackle Joe Thomas, trying for his sixth straight Pro Bowl selection, was fourth. Running back Trent Richardson was fifth.
Cribbs was honored by the love shown to him by the fan base.
"It lets me know that hard work doesn’t go unnoticed, especially in this town, being a blue-collar town,” Cribbs said. “It’s one-third of the vote, so I don’t hang everything on the fan vote, although it means a lot to me. I know in their eyes I’m a Pro Bowler."
Cribbs is probably playing in his final two games with the Browns. The three-year, $18.5 million contract extension he agreed to will expire in March, and it's doubtful that new management will want to invest plenty of money into a special teams player that will be 30 June 9.
