Jamaal Charles on the sidelines for Steelers-Chiefs game

I’m not sure if he will be on the sidelines for the entire game or he’s heading to a suite but KC Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles took this video showing him on the sidelines at Arrowhead. @jcharles25 pic.twitter.com/LhMDlojdOz— Kansas City Chiefs (@Chiefs) January 16, 2017 Jamaal wrote a blog post last week about his recovery. Other than that we haven’t heard much from him since he went on IR at midseason. Here’s to hoping he brings some luck.

I’ll believe Justin Houston is back BACK when I see it

I’ll believe Justin Houston is back BACK when I see it

Andy Reid said the Kansas City Chiefs were healthy and good to go for the Steelers game, specifically mentioning Justin Houston’s name. Chiefs fans were obviously thrilled at that news. Except ... I don’t completely buy it. I understand that Reid said he would be healthy, that Houston has had several weeks off and that the Chiefs expect him to play. I get all that. But it’s not like I forgot what happened last year. How Houston was supposed to come back and then was a shell of himself for eight snaps against the Patriots. Or Jamaal Charles earlier this year coming back and then going...

Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles: ‘I still want to play, I’m only 29 ‘

Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles: ‘I still want to play, I’m only 29 ‘

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles put up a blog post with a surprising amount of detail about his attempted recovery from last year’s ACL and what brought on the decision to shut him down this year. The key takeaway: Jamaal Charles says he wants to keep playing. He’s under contract with the Chiefs for one more season at a $7 million cap hit. There was a whole lot of information here from Jamaal on what his injury was, how it went down and how they responded to it. The key passage on what happened at the time of the injury: When I came back in Week 4, I needed to shake some rust...

Quarterbacks respect Chiefs CB Marcus Peters and these targets prove it

Quarterbacks respect Chiefs CB Marcus Peters and these targets prove it

The Chiefs game against the Saints in Week 7 this year is when I noticed quarterbacks avoiding Marcus Peters. Here is Drew Brees, one of the best quarterbacks of all time, and he seemed to actively be avoiding Peters’ right side of the field. At that point Peters had five picks in his first five games of the season. That continued for the rest of the season. Peters was not picked on at the same rate he was last year. Sure, some of that is Sean Smith being gone but some of that is also that Peters is really good. The way defensive coordinators would always mention Jamaal Charles, opposing...
Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 17: Spencer Ware looking to finish the season strong

Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 17: Spencer Ware looking to finish the season strong

The Chiefs running back has a chance to set a career milestone on Sunday against the Chargers. Heading into the 2016 NFL season, the Kansas City Chiefs knew they would need running back Spencer Ware to see more time on the field for at least the first few games due to fellow rusher Jamaal Charles healing from a knee injury. Fantasy Impact: The Chiefs and their running back will be ending the regular season this Sunday in a matchup with the San Diego Chargers.

Andy Reid says Jamaal Charles will be back “but it just won’t be right now”

Andy Reid says Jamaal Charles will be back “but it just won’t be right now”

Interesting comment from Andy Reid who was asked why the Chiefs brought Justin March back from IR and not Jamaal Charles. “That’s just what we felt was best at this time,” Reid said via quotes from the Chiefs. “Jamaal is making progress but he’s not quite there yet. He’ll be back, but it just won’t be right now. He’s been working his tail off.” That’s open to all kinds of interpretation. He’ll be back with the Chiefs? Be back in the NFL? I’m not sure that anyone knows that at this point. Like most, I wouldn’t expect the Chiefs to carry his $7 million cap hit next...

Alex Smith all-22 review vs. Titans: The solution to the Chiefs current offensive woes

Alex Smith all-22 review vs. Titans: The solution to the Chiefs current offensive woes

It’s Thursday evening, it’s late, I’ve gotta be up early, and I’ve had a crappy week (being super emo about Jamaal Charles not coming back will do that to you). So let’s get right down to business. This will be a slightly abridged film review, so we’ll start quick: Alex wasn’t good against the Titans. Yes, I’ve written previously that Andy Reid definitely was overly conservative in the 2nd half. But Alex Smith played a role in the Chiefs’ loss Sunday too, and not just on his utterly horrific pick in the red zone. Let’s glance at the numbers, then I’ll walk through a...

I thought I would watch Jamaal Charles run forever

I’m writing today not as an analyst (the term isn’t one I deserve regardless), or a contributor, or a columnist, or anything resembling something objective. I’m writing today as a fan. Jamaal Charles is the greatest football player I’ve ever seen in person. I do not have numbers to back that statement up. I have no in-depth analysis as to what defines greatness. I cannot present you with a rational argument as to why watching Charles play the game of football was just BETTER than watching anyone else (frankly this is true on television as well as live). I find myself helpless to...

Jamaal Charles (knee, IR) won't be back for Chiefs in 2016

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (knee, injured reserve) is done for the season. What It Means: Charles has just 83 total rushing attempts in eight games over the past two seasons. The nine-year veteran will turn 30 next month, and the Chiefs may elect to cut him this offseason, as they would save $7 million by doing so. Among the 54 running backs in 2015 to have at least 100 opportunities (rushes plus targets), Charles's 0.15 Rushing Net Expected Points (NEP) per attempt ranked second. Entering Week 16, the Chiefs rank 25th in Adjusted Rushing NEP per...
