Josh Cribbs and Desean Jackson. These two players are arguably the best at the return game today. Not only that they both play WR while Cribbs also plays Wildcat QB. Very similar players but who is better than the other? Lets have a look at each player's stats.

JOSH CRIBBS  With 5 years in the NFL he has 265 kick returns for 7,049 yards with an average of 26.6 KR yards and 103 punt returns for 1,141 yards with an average of 11.1 yards. He has 8 kickoffs returned for TD's which is a league record and 2 punts returned for TD's. He plays for the Browns.

DESEAN JACKSON With 2 years in the NFL he has 2 kick returns for an avarage of 6 yards and 79 punt returns for 881 yards with an average of 11.2 yards. He also has 3 punt returns for TD's He plays for the Eagles.

Looking at the stats it seems that Cribbs has the clear advantage. But remember Cribbs has been playing 3 years longer and has been given a lot more chances. Also remember don't judge a player just by his stats. These guys are very dangerous threats in the return game so never underestimate them. Both will be great, but given a choice I will have to pick Josh Cribbs. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments.
