Jamaal Charles had a remarkable year in 2010, amassing over 1,400 yards and earning the league's FedEx Ground Player of the Year award. Charles also had the biggest role in helping the Chiefs lead the league in rushing that season. Taking advantage of an improved offensive line, he and the Chiefs put together over 2,600 rushing yards, 133 yards better than the second-place Oakland Raiders.
Thomas Jones, who was acquired that offseason as a free agent, was also an asset as a player and leader while helping the Chiefs earn the top rushing title as a team.
Fast forward to 2012, Pioli made the decision to let Jones go to free agency after his contract expired. This led to the signing of Peyton Hillis, who has scored two touchdowns this preseason for the Chiefs.
One area football fans in Kansas City are excited about is the team's rushing attack, which brings back memories of their style and success that they constructed in 2010.
