Identifying Strength: Chiefs Offense

The 2012 Kansas City Chiefs offense was arguably one of the worst offenses to ever take the field in team history, so like the defense, it isn't easy to find many bright spots.

Jamaal Charles, to me, was the one and only offensive bright spot. He averaged 5.3 yards per carry for a total of 1,509 rushing yards. All this coming off of a major ACL injury. Some might argue that the offensive line played a hand in his success, which to a point might be true, but a look at the mediocre numbers of Peyton Hillis and Shaun Draughn show me that Jamaal had an astounding year in spite of the poor offensive line play.

The offense put up 2,300 yards on the ground, meaning the offensive line was doing something right. Their pass blocking and mental mistakes (false starts, holding) were atrocious, leading to a few QB concussions and lots of missed opportunities. Our QB's were sacked a total of 40 times, and both received a concussion. They did, however, block for Jamaal Charles and Jamaal had an amazing year, and its very debatable as far as how much the line had to do with it.

What do you think Chiefs fans? What was the Chiefs offensive bright spot this year?
