Jamal Charles Overlooked


As i was watching tv today i channel surfed my way over to Sportsnation on ESPN. Im not sure if anybody has seen this show but they have a segment during the hour long show called power rankings. This is where they gauge the talent and rank who is better at there position in there league. So as i was watching today they went over the best running backs that are currently in the NFL. I hoped that Jamal Charles might finally get through to the big scale media outlets however Im still waiting. The top five running backs that were listed as the best currently in the NFL were:

1.) Chris Johnson...carries 358...yards 2,006...avg 5.6...tds 14

2.) Adrian Peterson...carries 314...yards 1,383...avg 4.4...tds 18

3.) Steven Jackson...carries 324...yards 1,416...avg 4.4...tds 4

4.) Maurice Jones-Drew...carries 312...yards 1,391...avg 4.5...tds 15

5.) Ray Rice...carries 254...yards 1,339...avg 5.3...tds 7

Colin Cowherd, one of the anchors, kept saying that he felt that another running back should have been on the list and at that point I knew for sure it would be Jamal Charles but yet again i was let down. He was on the side of San Francisco 49er Frank Gore: carries 229...yards 1,120...avg 4.9...tds 10

but what about Jamal Charles carries 190...yards 1,120...avg 5.9...tds 7

Why can't the media finally give credit where credit is due? Jamal Charles is an elite back in the NFL and yes we all know that he only had a half of a season under his belt but he was still tied for 11th in yards with Frank Gore and only one yard behind Ricky Williams for 10th in yards for the entire season. Where does Jamal Charles rank among the top running backs in the league? I for one believe that Jamal Charles is one of the best third round draft picks to date.
