Josh Looney had an interesting quote from Charlie Weis about Jamaal Charles in his post yesterday:
Chiefs offensive coordinator cleared up a few things about Jamaal Charles’ workload on Friday afternoon. Here are the message points that Weis drove home.
1) Begin with the end in mind
“They are both capable of (carrying the football 20 times a game),” Weis said, referring to Charles and Thomas Jones. “But you have to think along with the head coach; think about the big picture and the length of the season. You have to be thinking about Week 7, Week 8, Week 12 and Week 14. You can’t just be thinking about one game and one game only. We look at them both as frontline players.”
2) Charles’ offseason shoulder surgery has no bearing on his current workload.
“No,” Weis said when asked if it did.
I don’t know if that clears up anything for me, but it’s what Weis had to say. You can check out the video on the Weis interview regarding Sunday’s game on the Mothership. Weis sounds confident in what they are doing with the offense and Matt Cassel. What do you think Addicts?
