Despite finishing at the bottom of the NFL last season with a 2-14 record, expectations are high for the Kansas City Chiefs heading into the 2013 season after numerous changes were made during the offseason. From hiring Andy Reid as their new head coach to acquiring Alex Smith from the San Francisco 49ers, there’s plenty of reason for the Chiefs and their fans to be excited about the team’s potential for next season.
In fact, if you ask running back Jamaal Charles–he couldn’t be more excited about the offense heading into 2013.
Last season, Charles proved why he was one of the league’s top running backs after finishing with 1,509 rushing yards and five touchdowns as he proved to be one of the few bright things about the Chiefs 2012 season. Now, with Reid on board as head coach, Charles believes the sky is the limit for Kansas City’s offense and as long as he stays healthy–there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be in for another big year.
Of course, it certainly won’t be easy with the way the AFC West shaped up last season as the Denver Broncos emerged as one of the top teams in the league after signing Peyton Manning during the offseason. Only time will tell when it comes to whether or not Charles is right about the offense, but one thing is certain–which is the potential is certainly there for the star running back and the Chiefs to have plenty of success.
