Chiefs Coach Says Charles Has Progressed the Most

When you're the Kansas City Chiefs, and out of the playoffs in November, you measure individual progress. Obviously the wins aren't there but there are players that are making progress.  Not as many as we'd like, but there is progress.

The one player that has demonstrated the most progress is running back Jamaal Charles according to Chiefs head coach Todd Haley.

Haley talked about the stat that's often pointed out around Arrowhead these days. Since Jamaal Charles took over the starting duties from Larry Johnson, only Chris Johnson has more rushing yards - and he's within striking distance of a 2,000 yard season.

Haley was quick to caution Charles' relatively short time of success.

"Now, we can’t put him in Canton yet," Haley said of Charles. "It’s only been a handful of games. Part of being a good player in this league is doing it consistently over a period of time. That’s just where Jamaal is at."

There are others that have made progress but none as much as Charles. 

"That said," he explained, "there are a bunch of guys without going into detail that I feel like have made big strides. But if you pin me down I’d say Jamaal is the more obvious."
