Quote:
Charles carried 25 times, so he averaged more than 10 yards per carry. His touchdowns came from both short-range (a 5-yarder in the third quarter) and a long way out (56 yards in the fourth quarter).

He presented a game ball to the offensive line for helping him get the team record.
Oh yeah ... He's from Port Aurthur and UT .

I followed his career through high school and UT. If not mistaken he was chosen in the second round perhaps 38ish or something like that? Congrats to him for a great season.

The Chiefs were about to trade him to the Redskins at the deadline for a 5th round pick but the Redskins thought the price was too high for a backup runningback.

He was my favorite RB in that draft class (I'm a UT fan though so all y'all thought I was just biased). Great player.

Default Re: Jamaal Charles

I loved Charles through college and thought he should have been a first rounder. I just thought he needed to go to a team that would utilize his strengths as a runner. I hated it when the Chiefs drafted him though, because I didn't think they would use him right and they didn't until mid season this year. It's pathetic that LJ got all of those carries for so long they way he did. Charles has been a total beast the last 6 games or so. And the worst part is that ESPN never talks about the guy and they don't ever show his highlights either. I've barely gotten to see any of Charles's runs all year.

ESPN did mention that Charles asked to be removed from the game against the Broncos so that he wouldn't break the record for rushing yards in a single game.

Said that if he was ever going to break it he wanted it to be in a game that mattered, not in a blowout.

I'm just saying that ESPN has hardly talked about Charles at all this season and how great he's been playing. I haven't hardly heard jack about him or seen hardly any of his highlights. I'll have to check the NFL network to try and catch them or something, because I've been a die hard fan of Charles since he was a Freshman at Texas and I knew he would bea great play maker if he could be used properly. I wasn't always sure if he could be a runner in between the tackles in the NFL as an every down back, but I knew he could be a great player for screens, sweeps and many other types of plays. He's been doing it all though lately and I'm very happy to hear that. It's crazy at how long the Chiefs kept him on the shelf as well for this long.

Eh to each his own.

I heard or read somewhere that Charles became the first back in NFL history to finish a season with more than 1000 yards and less than 200 carries. The guy only started eight games and broke 1000 yards (968 yards in his eight starts). Averaged 121 yards per start (skewed by the Denver game, but he still averaged over 100 per start without that one).

so what is Mario in your book? you worship that guy who barely even gives an honest effort and has to be called out to play well and whose big games could be called flukes, yet Charles is a fluke....


....don't tell me, your an Aggie or a Red Raider fan...or just classic Houston sports fan where anything outside of Houston doesn't matter.

Grats to Jamaal for showing the tools he has. Chris Johnson Lite.
