By Marc Lawrence — Continuing with yesterday’s power rating of every starter in the NFL via Pro Football Focus we find Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb with the highest rushing grade of any other running back since 2018. Meanwhile, QB Cleveland Baker Mayfield’s PFF grade of 83.2 as a rookie in 2018 was better than every first-year quarterback except Russell Wilson and Dak Prescott over the past decade. That number fell to 73.5 in 2019 (18th out of 32 qualifying quarterbacks). New Browns coach Kevin Stefanski’s offense and the additions of tackles Jack Conklin and Jedrick Wills Jr. should help right the ship for Mayfield in 2020, but there are also accuracy and pocket presence issues that fall on him to figure out.

|One of my favorite female singers in the 70s and 80s was Donna Summer, aka the queen of disco. Aside from recording 14 Top 10 singles, including four Number Ones, she had a Top 40 hit every year over a 10-year stretch from 1975 and 1984. In addition, the five-time Grammy Award winner sold over 100 million records worldwide. One of my favorites was titled Enough is Enough. And with the ridiculous overwhelming cry today to change sports teams nicknames for the sake of ethnic righteousness, it applies today more than ever before. The latest change finds the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL dropping its nickname as politically correct activists insist the name “Eskimos” is a slur to the Intuits, a group of culturally similar indigenous peoples inhabiting the Arctic regions of Greenland, Canada and Alaska (closely related to Mongolian people of eastern Asia). To which I once again say, “give me a freakin’ break”. Instead, what say we change the name of ‘politically correct activists’ to “alarmist a–holes” and call it a day. I’m sure Donna Summer would have said the same as she put it ever so eloquently… “It’s raining. It’s pouring. Enough is enough is enough. I can’t go on, I can’t go on no more, no.”|
