Dwayne Bowe is the offense for the Kansas City Chiefs…
It’s that simple. Bowe’s on again and off again on the field, but by far this team’s MVP. Forget Derrick Johnson, without Bowe we can’t score anything. Our offense is that bad.
With Jamaal Charles back this season – if his ACL’s better – he could help. But the Chiefs had to sign Bowe and let cornerback Brandon Carr go. They replaced Carr with Oakland’s Stanford Routt. Not bad.
Don’t worry about Bowe, he’ll get nearly $10 million this year as the franchise player. The guy probably wanted a five year $60-$70 million dollar deal and he may yet get it.
Another team can still grab him away if they pay more, and we don’t match it.
However they would have to give up two first round picks, so that’s unlikely.
P.S. New Orleans tagged Drew Brees and he’s majorly pissed. He wanted a long term deal as well. And you know what? He’s earned that more than any player in the game today. Brees brought that team back from the dead, so it’s kinda shocking that they won’t give him his just reward.
Bowe’s the best wideout the Chiefs have had in 40 years.
The best since Otis Taylor in the early 70’s. It’s been the Chiefs’ weak point since Taylor left, right up there with that we can’t find a star quarterback.
The Chiefs would have won about three more Super Bowls if they had.
Tony G was not enough. In 1995, 1997 and 2003 the team also had no big time wideouts. All of those teams were 13-3.
Joe Montana bitched about it daily during the 1993 and 1994 campaigns. His only real receiver was Marcus Allen.
So yeah, we needed to keep Bowe.
