"If this is the way for us to be successful, then the next step is thinking about the kind of players we need to add to fit into this system," Edwards said. But Edwards doesn't want to worry too much about that stuff right now. What he sees is an offense with a suddenly confident young quarterback and weapons like Gonzalez and wide receivers Dwayne Bowe and Mark Bradley. That's a much better sight than the anemic unit that took the field in blowout losses to Carolina and Atlanta only a few weeks ago. As for whether the spread offense really is the future in Kansas City, the Chiefs will have a clearer answer to that question in the next few weeks.
