Brian Daboll Wants Chiefs Offense To Attack In 2012

Brian Daboll, the Kansas City Chiefs new offensive coordinator, used the word "attack" when asked to describe how he would run the team's offense in the 2012 season.

From Arrowhead Pride:

"The first word I would like to use is attack," Daboll said. "When you're an offensive football coach, you really want to set precedent on a defense and attack a defense. That changes week to week based on things you may get but you have a set package as an offensive system where there's a thousand plays but you pick and choose on a weekly deal what you're getting defensively.

"I think it's important to be balanced to help the quarterback out in the run and the pass. Utilize different personnel groups, different formations. Sometimes we'll move in shifts, sometimes we'll be stationary. I think you have to have the ability to have an up tempo scheme where you have a no-huddle package. Threatening runs, passes and all those different things, you have to keep the defense as off balance as you can."

Daboll was the offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins in 2011 and the Cleveland Browns in 2009 and 2010. In the three seasons of experience as an offensive coordinator, his offenses have averaged a regular-season ranking of 27. He has the tools necessary in Kansas City to have a successful offense, we saw that in 2010 when the Chiefs had the 12-ranked offense in the league and went to the playoffs as a AFC West champions.
