The Kansas City Chiefs are going to get RB Jamaal Charles out in space as often as they can. He is the most dangerous weapon that they have on offense.
He went onto NFL AM and talked about the upcoming season and expressed his excitement of being used in the passing game:
“Oh man, I’m playing like, WR, just doing it all,” said Charles. “Yeah,” Charles continued when one of the hosts exclaimed some surprise. “Watch out.”
Charles was then asked what some of the differences were in Reid’s offense as opposed to the system KC ran last season under offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.
“I mean, just getting me in space,” said Charles. “I can get the ball and I can make moves by myself with nobody around me. “He tell me (Reid) ‘You the fastest one on the team, Jamaal, I don’t care who line up, a CB, safety. You can beat them.’” – Arrowhead Addict
Just get Charles out in open space and he will make people miss. He is a home run threat any time he has the ball in his hands, so any way that Andy Reid can get him out into space will be a golden opportunity to score.
Alex Smith doesn’t have to be a Pro Bowl quarterback to hand the ball off to him or to throw a screen pass in his direction. He will just need to protect the football.
