Should we be seeing some more Jackie Battle?

I've been happy with Thomas Jones sharing the load, but I haven't seen him earn tough yards on short yardage plays the way he was brought to this team to do. At least not since early in the year.

Repeatedly we feed him the ball on toss sweeps that put him back 3-4 yards behind the line of scrimmage. And repeatedly the play gets snuffed out. Might be bad blocking combined with a predictable play call from Weis. I'd rather we ditch these retarded plays and have Jones just be an inside the tackles runner/available outlet on passing plays.

As Charles gets more carries because he's the more successful back of the two, that's going to mean greater pressure to be successful on offense when Charles is not in the game. And I don't know what it is, but Jones just looks old and sluggish at times. Much different than he looked at the beginning of the year.

I keep hearing about the promise and splendor that is Jackie Battle. Hell, I saw it in preseason play. I even saw it against Jacksonville. The guy's a player. Time to put him on the field. It can only help out Jones and Charles by giving them some rest. Plus he really IS a different type of runner. Jones is far from a short carry/bruising runner. We'd have a true power back in Battle.

I'm not saying he gets a third of the carries or anything. But put him in the game a few times. Maybe if we've got a lead in the 3rd quarter and have already put together one or two first downs on a drive. Give both Charles and Jones a breather. Put in Jackie for one or two plays. At the very least he's adept at blocking.

I really like Battle. He's a tough runner. Not the fastest or the shiftiest, but he plays hard. I'd love to see him in more.

I know RBs are meant to be used, but Thomas Jones is ancient for a RB. He's lasted this long because he had a late start to his career. I really like the guy and I just hope he can remain productive for at least another year after this one.

Battle could help prolong his time here in KC.

I don't really think they should bench TJ or anything. He's still got some great runs in him. I'd just like Battle mixed in the bunch. Stats are great and Charles needs more touches and all, but the 3 of them give a lot of different looks for a D. Use them all.

Put Battle in ONLY when we have a substantial lead. TJ is a good back , he doesn't deserve critisizm.

Exactly. A few carries per game is what I'm thinking. No more than 5.

And who knows? Build on that. What if we had another Jamaal Charles sitting at 3rd string and we don't know. Build those 5 carries in to 5 more carries, but no more than 10. Jamaal needs to eat too.

If we get into a grind out the clock situation where we have the game in hand then giving Battle some carries is a good idea to me. We don't need to put any unnecessary ware and tear on Charles and Jones. Keep those guys as fresh as possible.
