I think Jones will start and Charles and Mccluster will both see a lot of time at hb as well. We have a 3 headed monster at RB. Witch will be GOOD to see.

Technically, Jones is the starter. Jamaal is likely to get more touches though and will probably be a more productive player this season, barring injury.

Charles has looked much better in the preseason than Jones, although Jones has been good for the most part too.

I want to see a four headed monster with Battle getting some tough yards. I wonder how much we'll see McCluster at WR

Here is the good news. The running game is going to be outstanding. Teams go the playoffs on the shoulders of a great running attack. And Jammal is young, and so is Dex. So is Battle. This could be the beginning of another running dynasty... a la Priest Holmes/Larry Johnson (before Larry showed everyone what a giaganitc douche bag he is)

Watch out. Chiefs are going to get good pretty quickly.

Jacobs could be a solid pickup, but he is pretty risky. He is no longer the starter for the Giants, and he has missed an average of 3 games per year over the last three years. Personally, I would stick with Jones, but I am biased.

oh my god if you can get thomas jones for brandon jacobs DO IT.

jacobs is nearing the end of his career, even though he's far younger than jones.

Ahmad Bradshaw is going to be the real workhorse in new york, and jacobs knows he's on his way out.

thomas jones is going to vulture touchdowns from jamaal, and he absolutely will get carries. I'm guessing jones gets about 12-15 carries a game, which could easily turn into 50-60 yards and a touchdown.

If you're relying on TJ to take you to the championship...well, I just hope you have Rodgers, Andre Johnson, and Randy Moss.

But for backups, TJ is an excellent choice. You also need to be looking for a young running back with more upside. You never want to purely rely on aging workhorses, because their top-end is limited.

Look at guys like Keiland Williams, Anthony Dixon, and Kareem Huggins as young, talented backs playing behind older players or guys with injury concerns. They're one snap away from prime running real estate.

While our interior blocking has certainly looked improved, I would say Charles is easily the back to have, of the two, until they prove it.

As for your question about Jones for Jacobs, I am with SAPHO on this one, for the reasons he stated.

I think TJ will start however I also think Jamall will have more yardage and just as many rushes or more then TJ. I like the way Todd Haley has been using both backs in the offense. Keeping them both fresh and then throwing in Dexter when the defense least expects it. TJ will get a break in the hole as will Jamal too. TJ over Jacobs any day. Speed kills nowadays in the NFL over power. GO CHIEFS!
