Charles vs. Priest

Been wondering who CP thinks is the better back

Jamaal Charles

1401 rushes, 7556 yards, 44 tds, 5.4 ypc

Priest Holmes

1780 rushes, 8172 yards, 86 tds, 4.6 ypc

My choice is JC. If you put Jamaal with the offense that Priest had he would probably have broken several records and would be a HoFer. That's not saying I don't love Priest, but Jamaal was out of this world.

I don't think this is even an argument. Priest was great behind that O-line, Charles was great period.

Maybe I'm partial to Priest because I associate him with a fun time (Vermeil years) vs Charles who I associate with the awful Cassel/Pioli era

Best seasons:

Priest (2002): 313 carries, 1615 yards (5.2 YPC). 21 TDs; 70 rec, 672 yards, 3 TDs
Jamaal (2012): 285 carries, 1509 yards (5.3 YPC). 5 TDs; 35 rec, 236 yards, 1 TD

Priest did that in 14 games, and if not for that dirty-ass horsecollar tackle, he likely sets records for all-purpose yards that are never touched. He was a patient, tireless runner, a tremendous receiver, and great at blitz pick up. I've never seen a back with better vision, and he was near GOAT status at the goal line.

Jamaal clearly had the home run ability that Holmes lacked, but 2002 Priest Holmes was the most complete back the Chiefs ever had.

Charles receiving stats

308 receptions, 2586 yards, 20 tds, 8.4 ypc

Priest receiving stats

339 receptions, 2962 yards, 8 tds, 8.7 ypc

I'd say Jamaal was the better receiver if you account for who was throwing them the ball.

I'd say LJ had one single season that was elite. It was his 2005 season where he started only 9 games and had 1750 yards and 20 tds and averaged 5.2 ypc. You could say it was one of the top 10 best seasons for a running back in the history of the league. But what's crazy is that 2005 LJ season wasn't even the best season a Chiefs RB has had. Priest in 2002 only played in 14 games and in those 14 games he had 1615 rush yards, 21 tds, 5.2 ypc and on top of that he had 62 rec, 614 rcv yds, 9.9 ypc and 3 tds. So essentially in 2002 Priest gave you the production of an elite RB and a 2 receiver. Then we get to Jamaal who had 6.4 ypc and he ran the ball 230 times that year. It's just amazing the talent we have had at the RB position.

I remember back in day when you'd constantly have to hear about the stupid ass Donkey's, there dumbass blocking scheme and how they have had so many years of a 1000 yd rusher, so basically 60 yds a game, BFD. The Chiefs have had elite RBs since 2001. I can't remember the last time I was worried about our RB situation.

JC did more with less. That said, Priest was the more complete back. I dunno. Gun to my balls, Id say JC.

Or maybe Priest. I dont know. Kill my balls.

I agree with you. I think the biggest opposition to this take was Dane. I loved most of his football opinions, but that's one I definitely disagree with.

JC was the superior talent.

Put JC behind Priest's OL, then answer the question who's better.

The end.

I'm going to have to go with JC, but that sweep with Priest behind Will and Willie was just a thing of beauty.

Jamaal had amazing talent. However, I don't think he would have thrived more behind Priest's line, or at least not notably more. Jamaal hit the line fast, and that Priest line was more of a chess game that moved defenders out of the way. Priest was the perfect running back for that line, because he let them do their work in the most effective way possible.

Priest was great, but you can't vote against Jamaal on this.

While i agres, Charles' vision and speed would have offset any advantage Priest had
