Jamaal Charles is getting better as the year goes

Jamaal Charles, E.J. Biggers AP

Yesterday’s weather conditions made a mess of many game plans.

But for the Chiefs, the sorrier the conditions, the better things are looking for Jamaal Charles.

Jamaal continues to be the best,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, via Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star. “He’s as good as they come.”

Charles had 19 carries for 151 yards yesterday against the Redskins, the latest in a series of strong performances as the weather gets colder. He’s averaging 7.3 yards per carry over the last three games.

“I knew I was going to get the ball the whole day, because of the type of weather that was outside,” Charles said. “I knew everyone was saying, ‘It’s your type of day.’ But it doesn’t matter what type of day, . . .  it’s every day for me. No matter what kind of weather conditions, I love to get the ball anyway.”

“I’ve been playing in Kansas City for six years, so I’m kind of used to it. You’ve got to suck it up. It’s football right here, and you’ve got to out there and play, no matter what the conditions outside, . . . sleet, snow, you got to go.”

While Charles isn’t a power running per se, his ability to make one decisive move and go is huge for the Chiefs, and can only help them the later in the year they go.

    Very clever putting AP in the top four spots and then listing JC. What an incredible wit you have.

    AP is a better running back. JC is a better football player.

    JC is not strictly a power runner, but he runs with as much power and toughness as anyone in the league. combine that with his burst, vision, olympic speed, and ability as a receiver, and he’s the most complete back in the game.

    peterson and mccoy may break more ankles with their highlight reel jukes, but neither of those guys and no other running back in NFL history has been as productive as charles on a per carry basis.

    AP is a Great Player, but I will take Jamall Charles Every Day of the Week. The Dude Delivers Every game. AP seems to disappear at times for the vikings. jamall is an Incredible Leader as well. I would take him over AP any day of the week. Go Chiefs!!!

    Team is still a fraud though!

    Haters gonna hate. Someone explain to me why the 10-3 chiefs are a fraud??? The 11-2 Broncos have 1 more win than the chiefs and they play the same schedule. I guess the Broncos are frauds then. Chiefs beat 1/3 of the league. That’s the way it is! Crazy after watching this team all year they are getting better!

  14. johninthewest says: Dec 9, 2013 4:22 PM

    They’re just not a overall good football team period. Again, who have they played?? Great…everyone back on the bandwagon this week after beating a 3-9 team! Congrats!

    Johninthewest is like the kid born into riches. He fails to realize how much of a self righteous brat he is and that he somehow earned his riches. News for John, w/o PM, Denver is mediocre at best. The most vulnerable paper tiger team in the league. One hit away from the crapper…..Johninthejohn

    Johnnieistheleast will enjoy another one and done year in the playoffs with his team. LMAO

    I had the #2 pick in my draft & seleceted JC.
    I would not have taken AP {1st pick} if he would have fallen to #2 because of the history of 2K yrd rushers {They either get injured or have a mediocre following season}
