After the New York Jets were blown out by the Cincinnati Bengals, returned Josh Cribbs made some comments taking shots at his former team. At least, that is what we were led to believe.

“We’re not the Browns,” Cribbs told Newsday on Sunday. “We’re not the team that gives up. We have fight in this team. They’re a motivated bunch of young guys. I’m just happy to be here and be able to contribute … Love it here.

“We lost. It’s going to be a lesson for us and we’re going to play harder,” said Cribbs. “It’s good that (loss) comes now because we’re still in the mix of this. We’re halfway through the season.”

Cribbs jumped on Twitter to defend him self saying he was misquoted.

Wow Browns fans why all the hate? Years of loyalty & one miss quote in an article an u now wish the worst 4me? I thought by now u can read thru the chopped up quite a miss conceptions…smh but I know it hard to cypher thru I love y’all like a sibling we can fight as long as we always make up! Be blessed….

And in another tweet:

Yea spell check got me but I’m sure u guys understand what was said, if u want to hate me, curse me, it’s fine, anger is a beast some time, but go ahead & let it out if it makes it better, again be blessed regardless….
