Pro Football Focus: Offensive/Defensive Player of Year

1

Offensive Player of the Year: 2. Jamaal Charles, HB, Kansas City Chiefs (+25.9) It wasn’t a surprise to see Charles play so well after his break out at the end of 2009. Scary to think what he could be capable of if given more carries (and there’s nothing to suggest he couldn’t handle the workload). His 6.3 yard per carry is amazing, but it’s almost impressive that almost half of his yards (714) came after contact. Defensive Player of the Year: 4. Tamba Hali, OLB, Kansas City Chiefs (+52.1) As pure pass rushers go, we should all hail Hali. The man is another guy who has just gone about his year victimizing quarterback with a combined 31 sacks and QB hits, which when added to his pressure stats give us 95 QB disruptions on the year. MVP: 8. Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City Chiefs (92 points) The case for: What’s a running back got to do to win MVP? Last year, Chris Johnson hit 2,000 yards and barely got a sniff, and this year Charles turns in the best per-carry average since the 60s (6.3!) and will almost surely get no votes. He finished as our No. 1 graded RB (+25.9), and the fact that his time-sharing friend Thomas Jones finished 53rd out of 58 is a pretty compelling argument for Charles. The case against: The Chiefs had an awful lot of top performers this year – Tamba Hali, Brandon Flowers, Matt Cassel – and how valuable can a guy be if he doesn’t even lead his team in carries? - I'm not sure how respected PFF is, but I really enjoy the site and how detailed their analysis is of each player. We have Charles locked up, now we just have to do the same with Hali. Get it done, Pioli!
