Just had to point to this:

As for Jones, he’s coming off his best season and he has had a really nice run of five straight seasons with more than 1,100 yards. However, he’s going to be 32 next season and the history of running backs after the age of 30 is a bad one.

So the history of over 30 players is a bad one, yet Jones had his best season at 31, and Cole doesn't catch the problem with his logic.

Cole may end up being right about Jones, or he may not, but he should have put a bit more thought into that part of his answer.

Kansas City will win the AFC West outright and vie for the AFC championship vs. either Baltimore or the Jets

just like your news dept., you are either retarded or never played the game. … This year Kansas City will win the AFC West outright and vie for the AFC championship vs. either Baltimore or the Jets. And Noshawn Moreno? He gained more than one-third of his yardage against KC and the porous Raiders rush defense. … I think I’ll send in an application to Yahoo … they need a serious writer who actually knows the game. … Go join the Army or other branch of the service.

A combination of a true fan/Draftublator or whatever the **** you spell that word

I like the signing, knowing he's not going full-time. But, the shoe is gonna fall off this guy. It's not if, but when.

Yes, Jamaal Charles did most of his work against bad teams. Against Pittsburgh, Charles had only 58 yards rushing. His top four rushing games last season were, in order: 1) 259 yards rushing versus Denver in the season finale (a week when notoriously mediocre players get great stats); 2) 154 yards against Cleveland; 3) 143 yards vs. Buffalo; 4) 103 yards against Oakland (a team you called “porous” on defense). That’s a total of 659 yards in four games. Charles finished with 1,120 yards, meaning he gained nearly 60 percent of his yards against bad teams. Next time, do your own homework, particularly if you want to work at Yahoo!

Charles started 8 games, and this guy is acting like it's a big deal that 60% of his yards came in 4 games? Wow!!!

"This year Kansas City will win the AFC West outright and vie for the AFC championship vs. either Baltimore or the Jets."


LOL WHAT? I'm all for blasting this clown of a writer at yahoo for his lack of NFL knowledge and what seems to be an utter shitting disregard for Kansas City in most of his articles and a little bit of homerism he always gives the Broncos, but if your a Chiefs fan, saying stuff like that to this guy only fuels why he rates KC so low on things, who actually thinks we are going to A) win the AFC West and THEN all of a sudden compete with the Ravens, Jets, whoever the hell else has been a good franchise for the last 5 years for the Conference. That's just silly.

Curtis Martin had the best year of his career when he was 31, had the worst season of his career at 32, and was out of the NFL by the age of 33.

That's exactly what I thought... he didn't really help himself out with any of his responses.

Curtis Martin had the best year of his career when he was 31, had the worst season of his career at 32, and was out of the NFL by the age of 33.

Martin suffered a knee injury at the beginning of the season, and it didn't get better. He ended up cutting his season short. He had surgery on the knee, but the pain was still too much and he retired. It's not as if he just crapped out due to age and had nothing else going on to explain his decline.

Also, running backs can crap out at any age.

Terrell Davis was toast by age 27. Kevin Faulk can still play even though he's going to be 34 this season. Walter Payton was running for more than 4 yards per carry at age 33, etc....

The notion that 30 is some magic number is nice when you want to paint with a broad brush, but it's not an absolute.

It's Knowmo though. You have to understand he pulls shit out of his ass daily with no explanation.

So Cole's saying he isn't sold against Jamaal Charles because Charles ran well against bad football teams. Fair enough. BUT

Look at Kansas City's schedule this year. Before Thomas Jones arrived, Jamaal Charles was said to be a nice pick-up because the Chiefs are playing a lot of teams that struggle against the run and have made little to no improvement in that category. Even with Jones, Charles may be a good fantasy player. But forget fantasy football...

The fact that the Chiefs have Jamaal Charles, Thomas Jones and Dexter McCluster and with this schedule, Cole better continue using that excuse throughout the season. I expect those three to do a lot of damage on opposing defenses when it comes to the ground.

The KC rushing attack will rank 2nd or 3rd in the NFL by seasons end. So this Cole guy will look like a douchebag by the end of the year.
