Jamal Lewis Isn't the Only Player Who Thinks the Browns Quit

Last week, Browns running back Jamal Lewisrips his teammates for quitting against the Denver Broncos last Thursday night. Some of those teammates agree with Lewis.

"When you have a team like that that comes into our house and we're capable of beating them, that's the first thing that comes to mind,'' wide receiver Josh Cribbs said Monday. "We can't figure out what man, but that's what it looked like -- some guys quit. ... We know if everybody didn't quit, we would have won that ballgame.''

"[Lewis'] input is very valuable to this team,'' Browns linebacker and team captain Andra Davis said. "So if he says something like that, then guys really need to check their egos."

Cleveland became just the fifth NFL team to ever lose back-to-back games in which they held at least a 13-point lead in the second half. Two weeks ago, they gave up 24 unanswered points to the Baltimore Ravens. Last Thursday, the Browns gave up three TD passes in the fourth quarter in their 34-30 loss to Denver.

It is obvious that this has gotten away from head coach Romeo Crennel. There is nothing worse for a coach than to have your players quitting on you.
