The Kansas City Chiefs offense was one of the league's worse offenses in 2009, and still has yet to prove itself since a man named Dick Vermeil was in charge in the early 2000s'. The 2010 version of the Chiefs hopes to change this around, as they have added some new exciting pieces to a team and franchise that has been starving for play-makers for years. KC hopes that these fresh faces will help ignite many of the current players talents in an an effort to return to the offensive glory that the franchise has seen in the past.
The speedy, self-proclaimed offensive weapon should see have plenty of opportunities with the ball in his hands this coming season. At the collegiate level, DMC was a very good running back as he racked up over 1,900 rushing yards, and also was a productive receiver as he amassed over 1,700 yards in his career for Ole Miss. He has blazing speed and will give opposing defensive coordinators nightmares week in and week out whether he is getting hand-offs, receiving passes, or even running the wildcat for Kansas City's offense this season.
The former pro-bowler has been one of the most productive and efficient running back in the league over the past five years. During this time span, he has rushed for over 1,000 yards every year and has also scored 43 touchdowns along the way. He will be part of a dangerous 1-2 punch at running back for KC this season, behind the rising star Jamaal Charles. Jones, like Charles, has the ability to take at the distance every time he gets the ball in his hands.
The former 7th round pick and Tom Brady backup had an average season last year after a solid first full year in the NFL in 2008. Cassel has the tools to be a successful quarterback in this league and will have more weapons at his disposal this time around. He will have to improve in his 17 interceptions from last season, but with an improve offensive line, a better running game, and more capable targets to throw to, the sky is the limit for Mr. Cassel.
The former LSU star has shown glimpses of the star that he can still become in the NFL someday. It has been reported that he has been in great shape during this off-season and that he is slowly starting to but in to the new management of Scott Pioli and Todd Haley. D-Bowe averaged just over 1,000 yards receiving in each of his first two season for KC, and there is no reason to think that a more motivated and Todd Haley-tested Bowe couldn't improve on these previous statistics.
JC was by far the most electrifying offensive player that the Chiefs possessed last season This year, he will be counted on more, as he will be expected to be the Chiefs starting running back from Week 1. Kansas City brought in former Jets running back Thomas Jones to lighten the load for Jamaal, but look for him to still get a lot of carries each game and to continue to juke, spin and run by opposing NFL defenses, much like he did during the '09 campaign.
