Coffee with the Chiefs – Jamaal Charles has plenty left


Good morning, Addicts. It’s Sunday, which is going to be so exciting to say in about three months. In fact, we are under three months away from opening day (September 13th), something that makes me ready to do cartwheels down the hallway. There is nothing quite like waking up on a football Sunday when your team is in the middle of a postseason push. Here is your Kansas City Chiefs news from around the league to catch up on.

Jamaal Charles has plenty more to giveTerez Paylor of Kansas City Star

"Charles missed that game last year because of a high ankle sprain. He also concerned many when he admitted to experiencing a symptom of a concussion after a hard hit against the Chargers, though the Chiefs insist they vigilitantly followed league protocol regarding testing and say Charles ― who left the wild-card loss in January 2014 because of a concussion ― cleared all of them."

"The offense has drastically improved since John Dorsey and Andy Reid took over in 2013, but they haven’t quite hit their stride yet. When the offense finally looked like it was clicking in 2013, the defense collapsed, and we all know how that turned out for the 2013 KC Chiefs squad. It wasn’t pretty."

"It’s hard to beat a home opener against the Broncos on a Thursday night in Week 2. The Chiefs haven’t beaten Denver since Peyton Manning joined the Broncos. Arrowhead Stadium will be loud that night. The Monday night game against the Packers at Lambeau Field and the game against the Detroit Lions in London are other big games."
