Brian Waters Impressed With Chiefs RBs Including Dexter McCluster

Kansas City Chiefs guard Brian Waters is always a good interview after a game because he tends to tell it like it is. If the Chiefs sucked, he'll come out and say that. If they do well, he's not afraid to say that either.

Like most of the Chiefs players on Sunday, Waters was a happy camper after the game. After 42 points and 236 yards rushing on the Jacksonville Jaguars, Waters says he likes who he's blocking for.

"I know Priest and Larry was a great combination a few years ago but this is one of our most dynamic combinations we've ever had," Waters says of Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles. "There's no animosity. Both guys have their strengths and weaknesses. When one guy comes off the field the other guy is the first guy to celebrate and encourage the other guy."

"That's something we really appreciate from both guys. They have a lot of talent. One has a huge amount of experience and the other has a huge amount of talent so to have those guys in the backfield is definitely a plus for us."

As for the third running back, Dexter McCluster, Waters says, "As many times as we can get his hands on the ball as necessary. He's an exciting football player with the ball in his hands and we're going to try to figure out more and more ways to get the ball in his hands."

The Chiefs have been saying for a while now that they're trying to figure out how to get McCluster the ball. They were clearly trying that on Sunday as McCluster had nine total touches (four carries and five catches).

McCluster, along with Jones and Charles, is proving to be a dangerous combination. Two 200+ yard rushing games is evidence of that.
