    I agree that if CHarles can bulk up a bit more, we could rely on him as the starting back. Then we really could afford to get rid of LJ and draft a back like Shonn Green.

    I also agree with the comment about keeping LJ if he was more like Gonzalez. A humble well rounded individual that is a good influence on the young players. Johnson has so much baggage, and bad habbits... you don't want the team to turn into the Bengals, look what Chad Johnson and Chris Henry have done there, bad decisions outside of football = bad, undiciplined play on the football field.

    So bulk up abit Charles and give us hope! you could be the next LT in this league.

    I feel that Charles should get 10-15 touches per game (outside runs/ Screens/etc.) We should get rid of LJ in a trade to help with another position (DE, LB, OL) or for high draft picks.

    Then we should sign Derrick Ward from the giants, since they wont be able to afford to keep both him and Jacobs (we have the cap room). Or like someone else has stated, Draft Shonn Green RB from Iowa to carry the load (100+ yds rushing in every game this season! possibly one game he missed the mark, but still that is impressive) the second option will be alot cheaper than the first.
    Good post. I also think Shonn Green out of Iowa could be a good between the tackles runner. Last I saw, he was slated to be the 5th RB taken. Probably lands in the 3rd-4th round. I think the Chiefs could get that kind of pick out of LJ. Then we would have a very young talented "between the tackles" RB with fresh legs to compliment Jamaal Charles. Kolby Smith also could serve this purpose and provide some depth.

    I'd take Shonn Green for less money and with a better attitude before I would take a ball hungry, poor attitude LJ. Don't get me wrong, I think LJ is the perfect compliment to Jamaal Charles. It just doesn't seem that LJ wants to split time or become that kind of a back. He also wants out of KC.

    I cannot believe I'm finding some fellow Kolby fans, this is awesome. I do forget that Charles was such a big track man, he could bulk up a good 5-10lbs. I think with the weight he'll lose speed, but run more like a RB. Also, I would absolutely love to see Shonn Green, the only thing with strong,power backs is that they usually need the load of carries in order to weardown defenses. If our staff can accept letting a rookie take the load, I believe Charles and Smith would benefit greatly. With Shonn Green/Rashad Jennings/Eric Kettani-types we could get the similar backfield to Dallas or NYG.

    Yeah I like Shonn Green too, and I don't see why our coaches would have a problem letting him tote the tough running load.

    We are starting to see a lot of young talents specialist in the NFL. I believe these last few year, and the two to three years to come will be the next generation in the NFL.

    Look at what rookie running backs have done in the last 2-3 years.

    This year: Chris Johnson, Matt Forte, Johnathan Stewart, Steve Slaton, Leronn McClain, Kevin Jones, Jamal Charles, BenJarves Green-Ellis, and Felix Jones, Ryan Torain, and McFadden before they got hurt

    Last Year: Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson, Ryan Grant

    Two years ago: Joeseph Addai, Mo Jones-Drew, Reggie Bush, De Angelo Williams,

    We have seen some potential HOF backs drafted in these past three years. Why not have the Cheifs get rid of LJ for potentially a dimond in the rough like Shonn Green? What else do we have to loose?

    The RB generation has def. caught up. I believe TE's have already caught up, WR's are going to start, and soon Defensive players are gonna have to start becoming more universally dynamic too.
