No more Dwayne Bowe. According to Yahoo Sports and 610 Sports, D-Bowe is a goner. Bowe wants out of Kansas City and NOW. He’s tired of being on this team that’s going nowhere. Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli will likely trade him in the next few weeks so he can at least get a number 2 or 3 draft pick for him. Bowe has made it clear HE DOES NOT WANT TO BE HERE NOW OR NEXT SEASON.
Can you blame him?
The Chiefs have reached rock bottom. This may be the worst team with the bleakest future of any Chiefs era EVER. We have no quarterback, no coach, no general manager and now we will lose arguably our best offensive weapon Bowe.
He’s too small and fragile to carry the ball as often as this team wants him too. Charles could take a career ending hit any game now. If not he can be an effective running back, but he has no power and cannot carry a running game by himself.
It’s been seen over and over that he can’t run short or inside the red zone with much success. The guy has TWO touchdowns this season, not very impressive. Yes, he leads the league in yardage but to what end? One win.
As 610 Sports said today, a la Jaycee Pearson, “Charles will soon be a role player at best.”
In fact all of Pioli’s off season pick ups were guys cut from other teams and in effect, glorified role players. Eric Winston is the best of them and is at best average. All but our “Oakland” corner are hurt or worthless.
Pioli did finally have his long-awaited interview with the local press.
How do I make it simple? He said nothing really. “We don’t discuss contracts”…..”Our team is better off now at 1-5 than four years ago when I got here” And my favorite, “Well, all my draft picks have not done so badly, I think Tyson Jackson is doing well”
Scott, do you watch the games?
When asked by 610 Sports if he’d seen Smith or Barkley or the top three quarterbacks in college this season his answer was, “No, not yet. Not really.”
I guess replacing Matt Cassel is not important to Pioli, huh?
Pioli also said even though the quarterback spot was important you could still be very good with the rest of the team being the “right 53.”
We see how well that’s worked out so far this season.
Pioli danced around every question and took little responsibility for being the worst team in the NFL today. He thinks he needs to “do better, we all need to do better in our jobs.”
I think after his cold and stupid comments, it’s even more clearly than ever time to say goodbye to Mister Pioli.
He is a lost soul in the game.
We can’t blame Clark Hunt for hiring him – it seemed like a great choice four years ago – not so much today. This team is lost. It has no stars and no immediate future…NONE…Next year this team will be awful again and maybe for years to come.
This has been a horrid team and franchise since Marty Schottenheimer left. They have nothing to show for the last 15 years, zip. At no time did this team challenge for even a woof of an AFC title let alone a Super Bowl.
We have ended every season, including 2003 and Dick Vermeil‘s, as one of the worst teams in the NF. And yes, that includes the phony 2010 season at 10-6. Because by season’s end the Chiefs were major league bad and couldn’t beat anyone.
So Bowe is soon to go and Scott is looking to stay – it’s a mess.
This team will need a leader, a savior. Let the search begin.
We are years away from any glory, but that’s how it has always been, right?
