Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel was part of the Sirius NFL Radio programming from training camp on Wednesday talking about the 2011 preseason, regular season and beyond.

Cassel said something pretty interesting when he was talking about the Chiefs offense and the weapons added this offseason. He seemed to acknowledge that there are a lot of mouths the Chiefs can (or need to) feed offensively.

That's some of the great things about the offense, and also some of the confusing parts of the offense because we do have so many options with personnel on what we can do. It's also finding that right personnel group and figuring out how we can take advantage of certain teams. Also, we have a great running game so are we going to get into big people, and be that kind of team as well. The coaches will do a good job of figuring out our strengths and playing to our strengths.

It's a good problem to have. So is the Chiefs top-ranked running game, as Cassel notes.

I think one of the story lines this year will be how the ball is distributed offensively. The Chiefs have two guys -- Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe -- who proved last year they could be near-elite status. Every time someone else touches the ball, it's a play that won't go to Charles or Bowe. Again, a good problem to have but also an interesting one to see play out.
