Should he be listed higher?
According to this Link brought to you by ESPN's Paul Kuharsky. He has Kansas City's lightning running back tied with Antonio Gates as the 10th best offensive football player in the NFL, that is not a QB.
While I respect the list. I don't feel like Jamaal Charles is fully appreciated for what he has done with Chiefs over the past two seasons.
When you read things about Jamaal with an addendum that states it hasn't been done since Jim Brown, 47 years ago. Well then, it makes me think he should at least crack a top five. Especially if he is being mentioned with the best ever. If you are among the all-time greats in stats, then by default, you are better then your peers... right?
See the list...
Here is the list:
Ranking the Offensive Players
1t. Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans
1t. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
3. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
4. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals
5. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
6. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons
7. Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville Jaguars
8. Jake Long, Miami Dolphins
9. Joe Thomas, Cleveland Browns
10t. Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs
10t. Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers
It would be hard not to take Jamaal Charles over any name on that list. Every single one of them is a complete game changer. Especially those two tackles, but J.C. is something special.
Not many around AP are big Bleacher fans, however Bill Robbins over there put together a nice read on predictions for Jamaal Charles. It is slow lately when it comes to Chiefs news, so check it out.
When you watch him play on Sunday's it is hard to think that he is only the 10th best Offensive player in the league that is not a hurler of the pig skin. When I watch J.C. play, it is hard for me to think he is not the best weapon in the League. I am glad that he is a Chief with a long term contract.
What say you?
