Joe Cribbs Life

Joe Stanier Cribbs (born January 5, 1958) is a former National Football League and United States Football League football player who has played for the United States Football League and United States Football League football team.

He and future NFL backs William Andrews and James Brooks played together at Auburn University collegiately.

He began his career with the Buffalo Bills in 1980. Cribbs was selected in the second round of the 1980 NFL Draft and played in all 16 games of his rookie season with Buffalo, totaling 1185 yards and 11 touchdowns.

His work earned him consensus UPI AFC Rookie of the Year awards and a spot in the Pro Bowl, making him the only rookie selected as a starter this year.

Cribbs played in 13 100-yard games and ran for 1,000 yards in a season three times in five seasons with the team, but there was a break during the USFL. Cribbs left the Bills in the fall of 1984 during a labor lockout and signed on as a member of the Birmingham Stallions of the United States Football League (USFL). Cribbs was supposed to serve as the president of Team Alabama of the AAFL, which had suspended operations shortly before it was scheduled to play its first games.

Cribbs was appointed commissioner of the United National Gridiron League almost immediately, although Cribbs was also unable to play a game.


Joe Cribbs Career

College career

Joe Cribbs played college football at Auburn. He played his first college football game in 1976 and ended up with 171 yards on 43 rushing attempts. With 872 yards on 161 rushing attempts, he had his best playing time in 1977. As a rusher, he had four touchdowns. He also caught six passes for 51 yards.

1978 was the breakout year. Cribbs rushed for 1,205 yards in 253 attempts, scoring 16 touchdowns and averaging well over hundred yards per game. He was a threat to the backfield as well as catching right passes. He was also used on gadget shows. Cribbs punched the ball four times, clocking in three attempts for 74 yards.

Cribbs had 200 rushing attempts for 1,120 yards in 1979, and had 14 touchdowns rushing in Auburn's final season.

Later career

Cribbs was a major figure with the Stallions during 1985, but the NFL was never established until the 1990 season, and Cribbs went back to play in football. Cribbs appeared with the San Francisco 49ers in the 1986 and 1987 seasons. He then divided the 1988 season between the Indianapolis Colts and the Miami Dolphins before his retirement. Cribbs never came close to the same consistency that had brought him into three straight Pro Bowls early in the decade.
