  1. Nick Chubb = Studd

    Chubb is a unique talent. He'll be a top tier RB from a production standpoint by the end of next season...if there is a coaching change and they are willing to just play the better players instead of having their favorite's.
  2. Nick Chubb = Studd

    Yes, the dd is intentional in the title. Nick Chubb is a flat out stud. He was a stud in college and kept 1st round pick Sony Michel running as a back up. He took over for Gurley as a freshman and looked better than Todd as a true Freshman. Without the one knee injury, Chubb would have rivalled Barkley in this draft for the top RB in this year's draft. And he showed why this past weekend. Note his vision, tackle breaking ability and the ability to shift into another gear to pull away from corners and safeties. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0tCD9fknUo Chubb now has 146 yards and 2 TD's on 10 carries. 14.6 yard average. Not too shabby. 8-) Of course that's being blown up by the two long TD's this past weekend. But, before that he was averaging 6 yards per carry. He is better than Hyde. Hyde is a nice RB. A good RB even. But Chubb is a game changer. Why aren't the Browns finding more ways to get this guy on the field?
  3. Daurice Fountain was the Shrine Game Offensive MVP and was taken in the 5th round by the Colts. Does anyone see this guy developing into a starter in the next year or two?
  4. Guess the Top 53

    I'm surprised as to how many of these lists don't include Rico Gathers. The Cowboys need pass catchers. I know they want to block for Zeke and that isn't Rico's game. But, he's a real threat in the passing game. Why wouldn't the Cowboys hold onto him and use him as a move TE?
  5. Nick Chubb = NFL Stud

    Fournette? Fournette's 40 was 4.51 and Chubb's was 4.52. The Brown's coaches were asked about Chubb's break away ability and they said they didn't see him caught from behind on the tape much. And I see plenty of his runs pull away from DB's. You know who else ran a 4.52 40 yard dash? Fellow former Georgia RB Todd Gurley. And he came in 5 pounds lighter than Nick Chubb. And he turned out to be a pretty decent RB in the NFL. I think Chubb is better than Fournette myself. And I like Fournette. But Chubb has an elite "feel" for the game that just isn't tangible. And, he had a 98th percentile SparQ score. The dude has burst, power, vision and enough speed to get the job done.
  6. Nick Chubb = NFL Stud

    If he legit gets back to "pre-injury" form, Chubb could be a top 5 RB in the NFL. I know that's a bold statement. But, I kid you not. He made people forget about Todd Gurley in Georgia when he took over for him. He's the real deal. And your new OC knows how to use a great RB...Bell has been one of the most consistent studs at the RB position over the past 5 years. I think I should go buy a Chubb jersey now.
  7. Nick Chubb = NFL Stud

    I am a HUGE fan of Nick Chubb. I've been a fan of his in college and going to the Browns may single handedly turn me to cheering for the Browns right after my #1 team, the Vikings. It's a packed backfield in Cleveland though. What are people seeing at camp? I see very little coverage of Chubb and would love to hear the good news.
  8. 2018 Draft Eligible WR Thread

    Ridley is very safe...but not exciting at all. He's going to be a solid NFL player an should have a very nice career. But he isn't going to be a WR1. At least I don't see that in him when I watch him. He'll be a 1st round draft pick in the NFL draft. But, as a fantasy player his ceiling is as a WR2 in PPR leagues in my opinion. And that's his ceiling. I think it's likely he won't produce top 25 WR numbers in the NFL.
  9. If I were the GM...

    The Browns have rolled the dice on rookie QB's so many times, only to not find "their guy". If I were the GM I would do the following: 1) Try to sign Kirk Cousins. This is the #1 thing the Browns should do the moment FA opens up...though I'd love to see him with my Vikings as well. He's going to become one of the highest paid players in the league but I think he's worth it. This move will open up the draft for the Browns in SO many ways. Imagine having Cousins and being able to draft Barkley and a defensive stud or OT to replace the hall of famer on his way out the door. 2) If Cousins signs elsewhere, sign Sam Bradford or Case Keenum. If they are both gone, then I'd offer the 2.1 draft pick for Nick Foles. If this is the move, I'd still draft a QB at 1.1 or 1.4 and hopefully still draft Barkley. Investing in the QB position is the most important thing the Browns can do. Making the investment into the #1 pick includes putting a player in front of them to learn from and not be thrown to the wolves. If everything works out in this situation, the Browns will have themselves an "Alex Smith" next off season and can trade him if they feel the rookie is ready to be the starter going into his second year. Or, they keep him and groom the position for another year. It wasn't a bad thing for Aaron Rodgers to sit for 2-3 years. Being patient could pay off big time.
  10. Robbie Anderson Arrested...Again

    The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta writes the Jets "aren't ready to give up on" Robby Anderson. Analysis: Anderson was arrested for the second time in as many offseasons in January, this time for several traffic violations and allegedly threatening the arresting officer's wife. The incident should lead to a suspension, but the Jets look likely to keep the young receiver around, an unsurprising decision considering how well he played in 2017. A restricted free agent in 2019, the Jets can retain Anderson at a relatively cheap cost for the next two seasons.
  11. 2018 Draft Eligible WR Thread

    I agree that the top end of this WR class is not exciting. Courtland Sutton does have a high potential ceiling, but he's not nearly as "can't miss" as many other #1 WR's in a draft class. However, I do like the depth of this class. I think NFL teams will actually find some productive WR's for their team in the later rounds of this draft. So, NFL teams have to be pretty excited about what they see, as long as they aren't a team with a top 10 pick who want to spend it on a WR. With that said, I expect 3-4 WR's to come off the board on day 1 in the draft and a few on day 2 as well. And Sutton has a good shot at coming off the board in the top 10. I've seen a lot of mock's with him going to Chicago at #8. I don't love that pick for the Bears. But, he does have upside.
  12. (Poll) Will Josh Gordon Make it Through this Offseason Clean?

    Hm...if I were the head coach coming off from 1-32 over the last two seasons, I'd be reaching out to Gordon myself. I'd do my best to align him with a mentor. Heck, I'd reach out to Chris Carter and see if he would take Gordon "under his wing" this off season. If there is any player Gordon could connect with, it's Chris Carter and what he went through. Gordon feels like he's ready to turn his life around. But, I feel like he needs a supporting group around him to help him through this next phase of life for him.
  13. (Poll) Will Josh Gordon Make it Through this Offseason Clean?

    Here's a question: What can the Browns do to help Gordon through this off season to succeed without falling back to his addictions?
  14. (Poll) Will Josh Gordon Make it Through this Offseason Clean?

    This makes little sense. He's still on a rookie contract for very little money and he is one of the top 5 most talented WR's in the NFL. You work with him this off season and you play him this year. If he breaks out, great! If he doesn't, nothing lost. If you still don't trust him after a great season, you don't re-sign him and get a compensatory pick when he signs as a free agent elsewhere. There is absolutely nothing gained by watching him clean up his act over the last two years and then saying, "nope, we don't want you." You are right. Few perennially successful teams draft a guy like Gordon in the first place. But, it is what it is. Now you make the best decision you can while you own the rights to him for another year.
  15. (Poll) Will Josh Gordon Make it Through this Offseason Clean?

    Typically a player coming from Josh's background and history doesn't turn things around. I'm not holding my breath that he breaks that mold. However, I think he's doing and saying all the right things and I certainly hope he has turned himself completely around. In fact, if he has and remains so in the future, he's likely to become a true leader on the team and will be able to help other young players coming onto the team. He had a chance to see his life without football and little future and he didn't like what he saw. That can be enough to change a man. I have high hopes that the later option here is what transpires.
