What snake names are out there, like Boa......where Chubb just quietly squeezes the life out of you. :chuckle:
Boa sounds good to me .... And to Mr. Paul.

Chubb just reminds me of a classic cleveland runningback.

There's a lot people who's frame of reference for the NFL goes back to 1999 or so, thus their perception of Cleveland Football is well...what we've all seen play out.

In actuality when you look at the history of the team? the amount of runningbacks that have made names here is rather incredible. Some tenures are longer than others, but are all in the lore IMO.

Keep feeding him the rock.

Up until the constructive end of the First Browns (1994), they had an unsung RB hero in Leroy Hoard.

Put together a great season after starting the season as a back-up I think.

Power runner. Quiet. Workman-like.

Michigan guy, too. Who says we don't like Michigan guys? Hoard was a little more quotable than Chubb though, not to damn him with faint praise.

Mike Pruitt is another fairly unsung Browns RB. Had some big years running and receiving. But, he played on a team best known for throwing the ball and he has the same last name as another Browns legend who played basically the same position, so he doesn't get as much love as he should.

Well there is Jim Brown. It's too early to put Chubb in that league, but the way he hits the line, then just gets back up and hits it again, reminds me of Brown.. I think Chubb knows what he can do, He is just waiting for everybody else to catch on..

If there’s any thing the Browns have actually done ok since they came back it’s running. They’ve been so awful at passing, that they had to move the ball somehow.

Green/Suggs was a decent tandem. Reuben Droughns had a very good season. Jerome Harrison randomly almost ran for 300 yards against the Chiefs in a crazy shootout. Speaking of almost running for 300...Jamal Lewis had one very good season and one decent season. Richardson, while a massive bust, had one exciting season. Hillis MADE A FUCKING MADDEN COVER. Crowell was a decent player and had my favorite hype video of all time.

Jamal is a first ballot HOF and The rest of the list is kinda meh but there were some guys that were fun to watch.

Chubb gets up too quickly after a tackle to be Jim Brown.


After being tackled, he would pick himself off the grass painfully and slowly, looking like a man who had just been hit by a bus.
He would trudge ever so deliberately back to the huddle. Then, on the next play, he would burst through the line again, shrugging off would-be tacklers.

Kevin Mack might be my favorite Browns running back of all time, but Chubb is winning me over.
