Jamaal Charles Will Suffer From Kansas City Chiefs Hiring Andy Reid
After tearing his ACL in Week 2 of the 2011 season, Jamaal Charles had some doubters heading into the 2012 NFL season. Now, the question is not Charles’ health, but it’s how the Kansas City Chiefs new head coach, Andy Reid, is going to handle the All-Pro running back.
Philadelphia Eagles fans know too well about Reid’s highly publicized west-coast offense. Both Brian Westbrook and LeSean McCoy are players who were underused while Reid was running the ship as the offense was based around the passing attack.
Reid has already made his mark on the Chiefs by trading for Alex Smith, who started 75 games at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers in his seven-year tenure with the club. In addition, the organization decided to give leading receiver Dwayne Bowe a five-year extension worth $56M. With Reid already putting his offensive weapons in place, the fate of Jamaal Charles doesn’t look good.
Charles recorded a career-high 285 attempts last year and also ran for a career-high 1,509 yards. As long as Reid is in charge the Chiefs can kiss production like this goodbye because the offensive system just isn’t tailored to 1,000-yard backs. I guarantee that in his first year without Reid as his coach, McCoy will have a career season with Chip Kelly at the helm for the Eagles.
McCoy had only 200 attempts last season which is a number that Charles can get used to with Reid’s new system in place. The only plus coming out of this hiring is that Charles will get much more action out of the backfield as a receiver.
