Jamaal Charles says Chiefs were outplayed and outcoached

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles thinks both the players and the coaches deserve some of the blame for Monday night’s loss in Green Bay.

Charles said after the game that the Packers’ players and the Packers’ coaches had out-performed the Chiefs’ players and coaches.

“It looked like they outplayed us, it looked like they outcoached us, and I feel like [the Packers] came out with a lot of energy — we didn’t come out with a lot of energy,” Charles said, via the Kansas City Star.

Some coaches might take issue with a player saying that publicly, but Chiefs coach Andy Reid didn’t seem to disagree about the “outcoached” part.

“The whole thing here, offensively and defensively, was my responsibility,” Reid said.

The Chiefs are now two games behind the Broncos and, surprisingly, a game behind the Raiders in the AFC West. With a trip to Cincinnati coming up on Sunday, the schedule doesn’t get any easier. Reid needs to get things turned around in a hurry.
