It's a unique approach, at least as long as I've been tracking the Chiefs depth chart. Head coach Romeo Crennel briefly touched on the decision to list both as starters.
"I had to put this depth chart out so I listed two starting running backs on the depth chart," Crennel said."I did not list a fullback but two starting running backs. I could've listed two starting tight ends, I could've listed three starting wide receivers or I could've listed two starting quarterbacks or I could've listed an offensive lineman at tight end but I thought listing two starting running backs would be the way to go so I feel pretty good about that."
Seems pretty obvious Crennel doesn't care for the depth chart too much.
We could've saved a lot of anger if Todd Haley had done this with Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones over the last couple years. Haley always had Charles as the No. 2. In fact, this is the first year Charles has been the No. 1 running back, officially at least.
