With all the hurrah surrounding Andy Reid's arrival as the new coach, I'm left wondering one thing: What will happen to our running game? For the last several years (and indeed, for this past season) that was the only offensive weapon we had, and I can't recall the last time Reid's Eagles were known for a standout running game (having said that, I haven't ever really paid much attention to the Eagles, unless they played our Chiefs, so I could be purely ignorant to their run game).
Don't get me wrong: I'm as excited as all (or most) of you to see what Reid brings to the table as far as a quarterback and wide receivers - perhaps we'll finally have a decent passing attack, not to mention the ability to win games (and, if not to win games, then to avoid those horrible blowout losses). However, one thought lingers in my mind...
For as long as there have been Chiefs, there has been a strong rushing attack, be it with one back or two. Several names come to my mind: Jamaal Charles (the greatest RB ever to play the game, period), Priest Holmes, Marcus Allen, Greg Hill, Joe Delaney. It seems that the Chiefs have either built or continued the illustrious career of some of the NFL's most prolific rushers.
I just hope that, with Reid at the helm, we don't throw that all away - literally or figuratively.
