A healthy Nick Chubb makes everybody happy.

This is exactly what went through my head when Chubb tore off that nice gain on the first play of the game last Saturday Sunday.

“He broke that one and I was like, ‘Oh crap, it’s on today,’” center Brandon Kublanow said. “So that was a lot of fun and always good to see Nick out there.”

Kublanow was referring to Chubb’s second quarter run that wound up being his longest of the day, but it didn’t take that long for me to see that, even more than was the case in the opener, his health has returned.  If we think that losing him to injury in last year’s Tennessee game took something out of the team’s mojo for the rest of 2015, what does having Chubb back do for their psyche for the rest of 2016?

    Saturday? Anyway, that first series looked more like the Chubb of last year before his injury. It’s good to see him healthy.

    I actually forgot to call my grandmother on her birthday because of the Saturday/Sunday flip. Her birthday was Saturday, so naturally, I called her at the beginning of the game, knowing she’d be tuning in on the radio. She wasn’t mad.

    Agreed, he looked a lot more like pre injury Chubb in Columbia than he has at any other point this season. Gives me hope for the rest of the season, and more importantly Chubb’s future earning potential.

    I think what helped Chubb the most was running vs the #108th ranked rush defense.

  5. Having a healthy Chubb means as much to the morale of the entire team
    as It does to the running game. He Is 6he leader & everyone plays better.

    Kirby to Chip Towers: You can’t handle the truth! Chip, we live in a world that has football teams, and those teams need players who can run the damn ball. Who’s gonna do it? You Towers? You, Mark Bradley? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for georgia tech and you curse the Dawgs. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know, that Chubb’s return from injury probably wins games. And his existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to the ajc, wins games! You don’t want the truth, because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want Chubb with that ball. You need Chubb with that ball!
