Peter King Pimping Charles for MVP

Not often King pimps the Chiefs (save any Pioli slobbering).

Hope he didn't just curse Charles

Now Entering the MVP Race: Jamaal Charles

The MVP debate lost one borderline candidate Monday night. Calvin Johnson was going to have a tough road, as any wide receiver always would, but his three drops—two of them at crucial times—in a loss that could keep the Lions from making the playoffs will knock out whatever chance he had in what has been a great season.

But the debate did gain one entrant in Week 15: Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles. His five-touchdown performance in the Chiefs’ win at Oakland Sunday (and seven in the last two weeks, for a league-high 18 on the season) is notable not just because of the sheer luminosity of it. It’s the totality of the offensive renaissance in Kansas City.

For the first half of the season, the Chiefs survived on defense and whatever Charles’ legs could provide on offense. In the last four games K.C. has averaged 42 points a game—42 points total would have been a month’s work back in October—and this has been Charles’ eye-popping output:

Attempts Yards Average TDs
Rushing 60 378 6.3 5
Receiving 16 272 17.0 5
Total 76 650 8.6 10


When a guy is averaging 8.6 yards per touch, maybe he should be getting the ball more than 19 times a game. But whatever Andy Reid is calling in the last month is working, and much of it is centered around Charles. If the Chiefs win out and finish 13-3, and the pacesetters—Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton—struggle a bit in the last two weeks, Charles could become a dark-horse candidate for either the MVP or Offensive Player of the Year.

“I’m not in the race,” Charles told me after the 56-31 rout of the Raiders. “That’s not for me to decide if I deserve something like that. I deserve to work hard and get ready to play the best football I can. After that, it’s not up to me.”

But …

“I do think about it,” he said. “But then I think about what I can control.”
What Reid has brought to the Chiefs, other than a calming influence after a raging storm in the last couple of seasons in Kansas City, is some new ideas to the offense. One is how to use Charles. Example: Saturday night in the hotel in California, Reid shared the first 15 plays with the offensive team, as he does every week. And the first play was a screen to Charles, a play the Chiefs thought would be great to run early to take advantage of the Raiders’ overaggressiveness and their wont to pursue plays too fast on screens.

“I looked on the paper and saw that,” said Charles, “and I focused on it all night. I could see it happening, and I knew it would be a good play to run for us. It turned out to be wide open.”

The 49-yard screen on the first play from scrimmage was one of four touchdown catches for Charles on the day, and for the year he’s been the best receiver out of the backfield in the league, by far: 65 catches, 655 yards, 11 touchdowns.

Now it’s going to be up to the 50 voters who make the picks for post-season awards for the Associated Press. (I am one of them.) Charles’s play down the stretch, and how he’s enlivened an offense that needed it, could thrust him into a race no one saw him in a month ago.

More pressure on QB = Superbowl contender if they can 42 points a game with that defense we saw for the first 9 games we're contenders for real

We're on the same page. Said same thing many, many times. I've seen my share of Walter Payton Awards, Pro Bowls, All Pros, Coach of the Year, Player of the week, Player of the month, Hall of Fame - Pfffft. Nobody cares except the people who roll into those guy's living rooms and see those stupid trophies sitting on the mantle. I want the pinnacle and I want it soon. With regard to this team, I don't care about coaches, players, or front office people. I've been wrapped up in all that crap in the past. I want to win. I want to win now. I want to win it all. Anything less is not okay with me. Sorry about the extra expectations. Competitors should play to win.

I agree, and I feel the same way. But also, with the pain and suffering of no playoff victory since 1993, and getting beat in 95, 97, etc, etc, it really takes a toll on a fan, that they even wonder if the Chiefs will ever win a playoff game again. It's like a battered fan syndrome, that once the Chiefs make it into the playoffs, you know how the ending result will be. One and Done. We're seeing a lot of people saying (and truthfully, I am one of them as well, I will admit) the phrase "I'd love to see a playoff win."

Truth to be told, I do want them to win the Hunt and Lombardi trophy, make no mistake, but first thing first, they absolutely GOT to get that one and done monkey (or gorilla in this case) off their backs before they can proceed to the next step.

You know, the way this sucker is playing out, if they get the Colts in the playoffs, they got a legit chance.

The Colts suck. They are the division leaders in the worst division in football. (Yeah, even worse than the NFC East.) They got two extremely lucky wins over the 49ers and Denver. If not for massive turnover benefits in those two games and a complete internal destruction of the Texans, they'd be fighting it out with Tennessee for that top spot in that division versus having it relatively in hand.

I think we beat the living crap out of the Colts Sunday and if it plays out, we likely get them again in the playoffs. I'll take that.

If the dufus is referring to Herm Edwards, the quote he stated on his presser should had been borderline fireable.

"People aren't used to this [i.e., losing] in Kansas City. Get over it, it happens, it's called life."

Since then, that's when KC went down the tailspin.

Oh I know what you mean, but when it comes to playoff time, every game from week 1 to week 16 is pretty much thrown out of the window.

Case in point. Remember the 2006 season? Larry Johnson was 2nd in the NFL in rushing (and the Chiefs were 9th in the NFL on rushing) and the Colts had the worst rush defense at the time, ranked 32nd in the NFL. It was a perfect matchup for KC at the time, right?

Well, didn't turn out that way, as somehow the Colts defense got on fire, and won the whole damn thing.

Charles is a fine player, but the only reason King is pimping him is because he is a New England homer who doesn't want to see the award go to Manning.
