With the latest depth chart coming out and Thomas Jones still on the first team and Jamaal Charles still on the second team, I figured it would be a good time to look at both of the Kansas City Chiefs top running backs through the first two games of the preseason.

Charles has simply looked better than Jones through the first two preseason games.

Game one: Charles has four carries for 37 yards and two receptions for six yards. Jones has two carries for two yards.

Game two: Charles has five carries for 26 yards and three receptions for 23 yards. Jones has eight carries for 29 yard and one reception for two yards.

Total: Charles has nine carries for 63 yards and five receptions for 29 yards. Jones has 10 carries for 31 yards and one reception for two yards.

Charles' presence seems to energize the offense differently. There's no stat for energetic but I think you know what I mean. Some are saying Charles is on the second team for motivational purposes. Some think Jones will truly be the No. 1 back.

I'm just hoping the Chiefs don't go through another half of a season thinking Charles can't do it, only to have him "break out" once again.

So at the halfway point of the preseason, the nod goes to Jamaal Charles.
