Apparently, the recipe for success for the Cleveland Browns involves sending Hue Jackson and Todd Haley packing and giving running Nick Chubb the ball. There may be a bit more to it than that, but in Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons, that worked pretty well. While Baker Mayfield was red-hot in his own right, Chubb’s plays had the attention of the entire NFL.
More specifically, it has Browns fans up in arms about how poorly their former head coach in Jackson handled the rookie running back. Shortly after Chubb rushed for a record-breaking 92-yard touchdown against the Falcons, Twitter began sounding off on Jackson and his lack of interest in playing the former Georgia star.
Before we dive into the many negative comments that poured in directed at Jackson’s coaching abilities, let’s enjoy Chubb’s touchdown run, per The Athletic’s Dane Brugler.
And now for the always-fun Twitter rampage from Browns fans, which can be credited to Chubb’s tremendous play.

Let’s Bring Baker Mayfield Into This
Jackson and Haley Gave Chubb the Ball . . . Just Not Enough
Jackson was fired on October 29 along with offensive coordinator Todd Haley. The Carlos Hyde trade came just 10 days prior on October 19. In the two games following the trade and prior to the firing, Chubb received 36 carries for 140 yards and one touchdown with two catches for 10 yards.
But since the move was made, Chubb had 22 carries for 85 yards and one touchdown in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and wrapped up a monster Week 10 stat line. In a win over the Falcons, Chubb had 20 carries for 176 yards and one touchdown on the ground along with three receptions for 33 yards and one additional score.
It’s safe to say the more the Browns use Chubb, the better their chances are to continue winning games.
