Former Chiefs running back defends Eric Bieniemy

It was a battle of former Kansas City Chiefs running backs on Tuesday.

On Monday, LeSean McCoy discussed the Washington Commanders’ hiring of former Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy as their new offensive coordinator. In short, McCoy doesn’t have high hopes for Bieniemy in Washington, believing most of his success in Kansas City was due to Andy Reid.

On Tuesday morning, former Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles responded to McCoy’s tweet and video from Monday, discussing Bieniemy. Let’s just say Charles sees things differently.

McCoy only played one season for Bieniemy in 2019. The Chiefs won the Super Bowl that year — Bieniemy’s second as offensive coordinator. Charles played 10 NFL seasons, nine with the Chiefs. Charles was in Kansas City for four seasons with Bieniemy as his running backs coach from 2013-16.

These are different perspective from different times. Both offer valuable insight into Bieniemy but Charles, along with Adrian Peterson, have vouched hard for Bieniemy.
