So assuming that the Chargers wont be having serious issues in Special Teams, let’s take a look at what kind of weapons we will be facing against the Kansas City Chiefs.
1. Jamal Charles
2010 stats: 1467 yards rushing, with an average of 6.4 yards per carry.
Charles has blazing speed and when he gets into the open field is nearly impossible to catch. He is a great pass catcher and almost had 500 yards receiving this past season.
2. TRIO: Matt Cassel/ Jonathon Baldwin / Dwayne Bowe
Matt Cassel is currently drooling over the weapons in which he will be targeting this coming season. Dwayne Bowe is known to be one of the best receivers today in the National Football League and with the new addition of 6’5″ rookie skyscraper receiver Jonathon Baldwin, the Chiefs will be loaded in the passing game. Luckily for the Chargers, we possess the leagues best passing defense!
Charles said to give the time to others as it was a rout with 6:25 left to play). On 487 career carries, averages 6 an attempt despite his team never being an elite threat to pass the ball. He caught 45 passes in ‘10 and averaged 10.4 yards a reception.
Charles is the best back in football. Listing him fifth is a crime. The main culprit appeared to be NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas, who ranked him 10th (and Jones, who Charles nearly doubled in yards-per attempt, ninth), saying he wanted to see a longer body of work.
Number 67 is Kansas City Chiefs guard Brian Waters, number 66 is Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour and number 65 is Houston Texans fullback Vonta Leach. I’m not saying Leach isn’t one of the best fullbacks in the NFL. But is he really a better football player than Waters and Seymour? If every roster were wiped clean and teams were drafting tomorrow, is Leach going before Waters and Seymour?
Would love to hear from Chiefs, Raiders or Texans fans. Sound off in the comments section.
