The Chubb-Hub Yardage Delivery Service

Do Not Sell My Personal Information
Bad line or just disappointing so far?
 
The bad: Chubb looked hesitant. He knew there wasn't much of a hole opening up for him, so he tended to drag defenders straight ahead to minimize the loss. Eventually, there were some cut back opportunities that he just missed seeing. The game needs to slow down for him so he sees those openings and explode through them.

The good: He caught a third down pass. I think he is a better receiver than he got credit for in Georgia. When Todd Gurley was there, Chubb played passing downs.

The main thing to me is that the backups on the offensive line had a poor performance. They shouldn't look like rookies. Corbett is the only guy I give a pass to from that second group.

You dont hand the ball 11 times to a rookie unless you see something in him.. OL sucks at the run, but I expect better from him anyway.. you can bet he will spend some time in the film room
 
Outside of the box-score, Chubb was solid in pass protection & blocking. He's got to learn to hit holes quicker, but as Keys said, there weren't many holes to hit.

Chubb will need to learn how to become a good pass blocker. I can't remember the last time the Browns had a RB who could protect the QB.

It is actually one of the most important skills for a RB to have in today's game. If Chubb can add that, and Duke can continue to develop, then the two of them can become a perfect, modern RB group.
 
Pretty sure on his 11 carries he averaged getting hit 1 yard behind the line of scrimmage. That’s pretty tough for any running back.
 
Saw a stat that PFF credited Chubb with 26 yards after contact despite only rushing for 11 total yards...

Line play certainly didn’t so him any favors based on that stat
By definition that means he was getting hit in the backfield on a bunch of his carries. But, I see some people bashing the rookie in his first pro game. Nice.
 
All the running backs looked slow except for Duke. The line play was not opening holes and sweeps are really not Chubb's forte'. Not having Zietler was very evident and Bitonio is still getting used to the LT position and this was Corbett's first game so I can see the issues from both sides of the line.
 
Dude is alot faster than I thought. Thought he was a 4.6 guy, but he showed a 2nd gear yesterday to actually pull away from dbs.

Chubb is going to be a great 1-2 punch with hyde once the weather worsens. Add duke as a change of pace and i think we're looking at something special

His speed is good, my biggest concern with him coming out was the burst in the 1-10 yard.

He lagged behind some of the other guys there, but I've obviously seen no negligible effects as it relates to his progression now.

That stutter move he put on the safety...
