Why do Cleveland Browns Fans love Josh Cribbs so much?

Or really, why is he always looked at as the face of the Browns to the National media? I found it odd last week when they were advertising the Thursday Night Game and they said "Josh Cribbs and the Browns take on Big Ben and the Steelers!" and I was thinking: "Wait a minute... Josh Cribbs? Not Peyton Hillis? Not Colt McCoy?" WHY?! It doesn't make sense! He has done nothing that I can see to have garnered this much attention.

Someone please tell me why Josh Cribbs is even a relevant football player.
Number one: 1646 totals yards of offense over 7 years with only 9 touchdowns to show for it is NOT the best offensive player.

He has 10 return touchdowns, awesome. But I really don't see how people love him! He's just a wannabe Devin Hester! And Hester sucks!
What do you mean he has good potential? He's been playing SEVEN YEARS!

Have you watched the Browns play over the past decade? Cribbs is the only guy that can make things happen out there. Sure Cribbs is a common on any other NFL team, but on a team like this ... he's Bette White ... "Hot In Cleveland"
