Chiefs vs. Chargers: Running Game In The Spotlight

Think back to last year at this time.

Larry Johnson had "turned over a new leaf" and some thought he would make a return to the player he one was despite our healthy skepticism. Jamaal Charles was a nobody. Kolby Smith was on PUP. At the time we were thinking the Kansas City Chiefs were going to be a running team, despite the fact that the players at running back, and the offensive line, weren't really built to be a running team.

Fast forward a year and we're much, much more optimistic about the running game. The Chiefs haven't played a game that counts yet but already folks are calling the running game the strength of the team. For the first time in I don't know how long, the Chiefs running game is gaining national attention.

Tonight that's finally put on display.

Does Thomas Jones still have it, despite his age? Was Jamaal Charles' 2009 season a fluke or the real deal? Do the Chiefs have a third running back candidate in Jackie Battle? How will Dexter McCluster be used in the back field?

I'm sure those are the questions all of you have as well.

For one night at least, the Kansas City Chiefs running game will be put into focus.
