The Kansas City Chiefs seem like one of many teams that will be entering the 2013-14 NFL season with a more exciting offense, and the players on the roster are buying in to the new philosophy which will only lead to success. One of the aspects of the Chiefs offense that is exciting the offensive skill position players is the introduction of the Pistol formation.
Kansas City is no stranger to the Pistol formation, but they are able to run it better than ever and thanks to consulting from former Nevada head coach and Pistol Offense godfather Chris Ault, they will be running it better than any team in the league.
When speaking about the new offense, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles couldn’t sound more thrilled.
“I ran it my rookie year and I love it. Everything about this offense,” Charles said on the NFL Network Thursday. “I ain’t never been around no offense that’s about to be explosive and about to put me in space and making me make plays. I’m glad to be in the Pistol. I’m glad I see Frank Gore had success with the 49ers. If he can have success, I hope I can have success as well.”
Kansas City has reportedly carved out a big role for Charles in the offense and they have plans to get him involved early and often, and in just a few weeks we should start to see more of what the offense could have in store.
With the success Reid has had with running backs like Brian Westbrook and LeSean McCoy, it is no surprise that Charles is getting excited.
