We're a few days away from the start of the 2012 NFL season and Kansas City Chiefs' Jamaal Charles appears to be ready. Charles has had a limited load in preseason but Romeo Crennel said he'll be a full-go when game time comes.
The big (fantasy) question is how the Chiefs will split the carries between Charles and Peyton Hillis. Crennel didn't offer any hints what the Chiefs plan is in that regard.
"Just how we feel, how it's going," Crennel said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs. "And, that's totally honest with you. You can't say how a game is going to go. We go up there and we work all these hours at night and we put a game plan together, but if a play is not working, then you don't keep calling that play.
"So, whatever is working, that's what we're going to call, and that's why many times you look at that offensive call sheet that has so many plays on it because if they're not working, then you've got something else to go to."
Charles said he's ready for whatever kind of load the Chiefs want to give him.
"Whatever it is, I'm not backing down from any situation," Charles said. "I'm here and I'm not going anywhere. They signed me a long time ago. I know I got hurt last year, but I've been in every preseason game this year, so that tells you a lot right there."
Jamaal Charles...still very quotable.
