1. Have Chubb and Hunt on the field at the same time

The concept of putting two of your best offensive weapons on the field at the same time isn’t something that hasn’t been anticipated or discussed over the last two seasons. We have seen Chubb and Hunt on the field at the same time, and at times, it’s been great to watch but many times the Browns decided to rotate the two running backs by way of offensive possessions.

This past season, it seemed to work, to a certain degree, as Chubb especially benefited by having fresher legs late in games and averaged over 10 yards a carry in 4th quarters of games.

That great 4th quarter average could go down a bit this next season for Chubb, but I’d much rather see these two running backs sharing the playing field. Both players are still well in their prime and have plenty left in the tank.

Imagine giving the hand-off to Hunt on a 1st down run and follow that with 2nd down screen pass to Chubb and Hunt lead blocking. The possibilities are endless and fun to imagine.

How the Browns decide to use Chubb and Hunt on the football field will be interesting and much talked about by Browns fans this season.

But like a “too good to be true” situation, I’ll just try and appreciate the fact that we have two great football players wanting to win for their team and hopefully get the Browns to that ultimate goal of winning a Super Bowl.
