Coffee with the Chiefs – Plan for Jamaal Charles


Good morning, Addicts! Hopefully you all enjoyed a nice Wednesday and are looking forward to the start of Week 6 in the National Football League. While the Thursday night game does not impact the Kansas City Chiefs, it should still be an intriguing game to watch. The Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints are major rivals, and the Falcons are trying to stay undefeated.

Alright, here is the news you need to know:

Chiefs have plan in place for Jamaal Charles’ returnAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Charles tore the ACL in his left knee in September 2011. He returned to participate when training camp began the following July and had a big season in 2012, rushing for a career-high 1,509 yards."

Andy Reid questions Kansas City’s sense of urgencyAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Not in response to any question, but in an unprovoked statement regarding turning the fortunes of a fading season, Reid said, “We need to get over this hump and work our way through this. There’s got to be a sense of urgency that takes place to get that done. And I trust that we’ll get that part done.’’"

Charcandrick West should be the guySeth Keysor of Arrowhead Pride

"Obviously, the main choices to replace Charles’s snaps on offense are Knile Davis and Charcandrick West. I’ve written about both more than once. Here, I discussed my issues with Davis as a running back (namely, I believe he lacks vision and instincts). Here, I wrote about West during the preseason and why I would use him as Jamaal’s primary backup rather than Davis."
