The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know.
Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb has quickly established himself as one of the best running backs in the NFL in just two seasons. After an impressive rookie season, Chubb followed it up by being 46 yards short of winning the rushing title in 2019.
Chubb shows a rare blend of speed, strength, and balance, which has allowed him to be a dominant force in the Browns backfield. Even without consistently being given the football, Chubb breaks off big run after big run.
Now in his third season, the expectations continue to grow for Chubb. After finishing as the second top rusher in the NFL, the hope is Chubb can take the next step and become the league leading rusher.
Today’s featured article explains even after two dominant seasons for Chubb and now a new regime, Chubb’s future looks even brighter.

"However, Vikings running back Dalvin Cook turned in a star-making performance under Stefanski, as well, so it’s easy to surmise another sensational season for Nick Chubb. That, in turn, begs the question of just how high the ceiling is for Chubb, who has churned out an amazing start to his career already."
Chubb’s skills make him a fit in nearly every offensive scheme, as he has the talent to be a top rusher in any offense. However, Chubb is a natural fit in Kevin Stefanski’s wide zone rushing scheme, as he has the vision and the patience to find the open running lanes, which is why his future is even brighter with Stefanski as head coach.
Over the years, star quarterbacks have received backlash from their fan base, even if they sometimes do not deserve it. Elliot Kennel wonders if Baker Mayfield will fall victim to that type of treatment.
"Showing off his scars and rehab in the post, Landry wrote a long message about the recovery process, saying “you can’t put into words how much strain and will power is being used to get through your sessions” before concluding with a postscript."
Jarvis Landry put together an impressive 2019 season even though he was dealing with the hip injury all season. With a fully recovered hip and even more chemistry with Mayfield, Landry could be positioned for an even better season in 2020.
The Cleveland Browns have an impressive running back duo of Chubb and Kareem Hunt that should impress in 2020. Randy Gurzi looks at three running back combinations that the Browns’ duo can resemble.
