Fans in Kansas City, anyway, were more skeptical: “ok, not my first choice,” someone wrote on Arrowhead Pride, a popular Chiefs blog and online gathering place, after the selection.

“Beast with an attitude problem,” wrote another.

“Reid is a character whisperer.”

“I wasn’t holding up my end of the bargain, so it’s tough to get on guys when you’re not playing well,” he said. “I’ve got to play better, and it starts with me. We have great leadership on offense, and guys are frankly embarrassed with what we put out there last Sunday. So we got to play better, I’ve got to play better and everybody knows that.”

Jamaal Charles says his heart will be with the Chiefs, hopes Kareem Hunt breaks his records | Arrowhead Pride

On Kareem Hunt: He’s taking over the tradition of running backs when Larry Johnson took over for Priest Holmes and I took over for Larry Johnson. I’m happy for the guy. I wish he breaks all my records. Records are meant to be broken. I wish him the best and his team. I know he has a great running back coach to coach him up and put him in great positions.

"I really don't even know," Charles said when asked what kind of reception he expects to receive. "I'm just going in there to play football, like I've done every day of my life. A lot of people think I'm a traitor because I play for the Broncos. I was just trying to get a job at the end of the day."

In particular, the numbers have been strong in Kansas City for the Chiefs’ prime-time games.

Two examples: the season opener at New England drew a 35.5 rating, which was second highest in the nation. And the “Sunday Night Football” game at Houston had a 43.5 rating in Kansas City, which was the second-best ever for a Sunday night game among viewers in KC.

“We plan on taking care of the run game because that’s what they thrive off of,” Ray said. “Stopping the run is key, then being able to attack (quarterback) Alex Smith.”

Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt: “You know, Jamaal Charles is a great back. He will never be forgotten. He’s in Kansas City history. He’s a great guy. I hear a lot of stories about him. I just know how good of a player he was and I heard he was a great person, too.”

Maybe, Chiefs will help Jamaal Charles break out |

“I feel like I’ll always be a Chief,'' Charles said Thursday. "I talked to the Hunts, (owner) Mr. Clark Hunt and Andy Reid. When (former GM John) Dorsey was there I talked to them and they said we would love for you to come back and retire as a Chief.
