A recent Fox Sports article lists the Chiefs all-around offense as the primary reason they would make the Super Bowl in 2011.

There's no denying the potential of a high-powered offense that's lining up for the first team in Kansas City. After all, the offense was already potent enough during last year's playoff run, but now the offense has been significantly enhanced to round it out.

Every component and then some of the NFL's best rushing attack is back again for another season of the one-two punch of Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones. Charles will continue to get better this season, and he should also enjoy running behind two-time Pro Bowler Le'Ron McClain, formerly of the Baltimore Ravens. In addition, last year's second round choice Dexter McCluster will also be available for the occasional run or screen pass, where he's dangerous one on one.

Last year, Dwayne Bowe led the league in touchdown receptions and it wasn't even close as he led his nearest competitor by two. It's clear that Bowe and quarterback Matt Cassel have a great chemistry and that should only continue with another of continuity and coaching. Last year, the list stopped with Bowe when describing the Chiefs wideouts, but the Chiefs added former 1,000 yard slot receiver Steve Breaston from Arizona, who's already familiar with Todd Haley's ways. Not only that but they used their first round choice on Jonathan Baldwin, a dynamic receiver from Pittsburgh.

In addition, the Chiefs have a great young tight end in Tony Moeaki, an Iowa product who can block as well as he can catch and looks to be the next great Chiefs tight end. Leonard Pope provides a bit of size in the end zone if Cassel wants to go that route.

These are the reason why a Fox Sports column recently noted that the Chiefs could make the Super Bowl with this offense in mind. Peter Schrager writes, "One-year wonder? No way. The Chiefs are legit. And that offense? It has the potential of a Super Bowl squad."
