Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles made an appearance on NFL Network’s “NFL AM” on Thursday and stated that they’ll be running the pistol offense under new head coach Andy Reid this season.
“I ran it my rookie year and I love it,” Charles said, via NFL.com. “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 see Frank Gore had success with (the pistol) with the (San Francisco) 49ers. If he can have success, I hope I can have success as well.”
Charles says he has never been around a coach like Reid.
“He’s a great coach. I ain’t never been around no coach like that. … I’m doing all kind of stuff in this offense right now. I don’t want to tell the secret of what I’m doing … just sit back and watch,” said Charles.
Charles likes what he’s seen from quarterback Alex Smith. He said he’s “hungry” for a Super Bowl.
“He looks real good,” Charles said.
Charles also believes that he has the chance to join the 2,000 yard rushing club.
“That’s some pretty good guys in that club,” Charles said. “Why not?”
