The Kansas City Chiefs had one of the worst offenses in the NFL in 2012 but according to star RB Jamaal Charles, things will be different in 2013 under new head coach Andy Reid.
Charles joined NFL Network on Thursday to talk about the new-look Chiefs and the All-Pro wasn’t shy about expressing his excitement about the new scheme.
“I ran it my rookie year and I love it. Everything about this offense,” Charles said on the NFL Network Thursday. “I ain’t never been around no offense that’s about to be explosive and about to put me in space and making me make plays. I’m glad to be in the Pistol. I’m glad I see Frank Gore had success with the 49ers. If he can have success, I hope I can have success as well.”
The Chiefs figure to run a west coast/pistol offense that will take advantage of the team’s most explosive athletes.
The new offense could be very good for Charles. Until now, the former Texas Longhorn has been mostly used in the running game. Reid’s scheme will likely utilize Charles more in the passing game which means he may be getting tackled more often by smaller defensive backs rather than giant lineman and linebackers. This could limit Charles’ wear and tear and hopefully extend his career.
What do you think, Addicts? Will Charles shine in the new scheme?
