Fifteen days until training camp, folks. This is not a drill, football is almost upon us. To help get us ready for the season we are asking three important questions that need to be solved during the months of July and August at every position group. We continue said quest with the running back group.
Kansas City is blessed to have arguably the best running back in the NFL not named Adrian Peterson. Few people in football have a weapon like Charles, who can smash you at the line of scrimmage, blow by you on the edge, or kill you in the screen and short-yardage passing game. There are few better in the NFL who can take what appears to be a gain of nothing and turn it into a touchdown.
Having arguably the second best running back in the league does not mean there are still plenty of questions around the Chiefs running backs. Let’s get to the most pressing ones now.
