My take on the LJ in KC situation

By now we are all aware that there is a serious problem with LJ at RB. He has a 2.4 average through 5 games this season. This is leading to numerous 3rd and long situations that the Chiefs are just not good enough on offense to convert. My opinion is that the piss poor play of LJ can be pinned on 3 different attributes.

First of all, why is LJ taking the ball on draw plays? HES A BIG RUNNING BACK!!!!! He NEEDS to be taking the ball on dive plays and gaining a 4.0 average at least. BUT he cant do that. Know why? The Center of our line (Niswanger and Goff) is atrocious, so there is almost no chance of a dive play even working without it getting blown up in the backfield. But in my opinion, LJ should still be able to make the dive play work, but hes lost his enthusiasm to run, and truthfully, so would I.

So what is our solution to this problem? I don't know. Maybe trade LJ or trade for a decent guard or center.Maybe let Charles have some more running plays, at least he can make the draw play work. One things for certain. This is a problem that CANNOT continue for the full 16 game season.
