Kansas City Chiefs: The Tragedy of Dwayne Bowe
by Dallas Wilson (Scribe)
May 24, 2008

Dwayne Bowe was born in Miami on Sept. 21, 1984. Thus begins the tragedy.

Bowe has the perfect body for football. He's 6-foot-2 and 221 pounds, big for an NFL receiver. He can go through the middle and take the most brutal hits. He has breakaway speed, running a 4.5 forty even in high school. He connected with 2007 top draft pick JaMarcus Russell on 23 touchdowns during their career, an LSU school record. All these things caused him to be a hyped draft pick.

Then all these things disappeared in one moment. The Kansas City Chiefs picked him with the 23rd overall pick in the 2007 draft.

No one predicted this would kill his career. The Chiefs had just come off their first playoff appearance in several years with a record of 9-7.

They had historically had a high scoring offense, always near the top. They had Larry Johnson, the surprise superstar out of Penn State, and Tony Gonzales, the best tight end to ever play the game of football. They also had quarterbacks Damon Huard and Brodie Croyle. Who?

You've never heard of Damon Huard, except that he is a quality backup. But he is a backup, nothing more. Brodie Croyle was a third round choice in 2006 and was not meant to be anything but the next Damon Huard.

A year of these two quarterbacks splitting time, plus the biggest o-line failure of all time caused the high scoring offense to drop to last place. They were 4-11. They had nine straight losses to end their season.

Bowe, at least tried. He caught 70 passes for 995 yards. He had six touchdown catches. Those are remarkably good numbers for a receiver, and not usually the numbers of a failure.

Just imagine this scenario. In the first round of the playoffs two years ago, the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Colts, win the Super Bowl, and end up selecting Colt's wide receiver Anthony Gonzales. The Colts would have probably selected Bowe.

This would pair him with the best quarterback in the game, Peyton Manning, and two of its best receivers, Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne. With Harrison getting hurt early, Bowe would have stepped into the starting role and flourished.

His numbers would have looked something like this: 1,500 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns off of 100 receptions.

But, sadly, the Chiefs lost and they drafted Bowe. Now with the Chiefs still looking to be horrible on the offensive end, Bowe will again underachieve. He won't play to his full potential until he is on a different team.

I like the Chiefs, but I like Bowe more. I don't want them to pull down a career that could put him among the game's greatest. Please, Herm, do Bowe a favor and trade him. If this never happens, it will be the biggest tragedy since Romeo and Juliet.

The best players are the highest draft picks. Those picks go to the teams with the worst records. That's how it works.

Yea, its funny how this idiot forgets that the Colts were one of the worst teams in the NFL for close to a decade before the Colts drafted Manning.

I know.... I really shouldn't think anything about it...

But knowing that some dickface Dallas Wilson actually got paid to pull this randomness out of his ass just rubs me much worse than it ever should...

I guess what gets me is taking one's opinion and actually spouting out fictitious numbers and scenarios based on that opinion. It's like twofold bullshit...

The Colts would have probably selected Bowe.

His numbers would have looked something like this: 1,500 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns off of 100 receptions.


And apparently, we sucked so bad that we only were credited for playing 15 games....

We already have a Tony Gonzalez. We wouldn't have drafted another one.

Not only is he clueless, he clearly didn't know what he was getting into. He's just some kid wanna-be blogger... not really worthy of the full Chiefsplanet wrath. :p

doesn't this idgit know that Brodie Croyle IS the next Peyton Manning? :)
they both seem like real off the field goobers... you never know how much else they have in common until they are BOTH throwing behind an offensive line that is worth a crap.

With JA's departure, Bowe has been bumped up to my favorite Chief on the team status. He probably COULD be getting better numbers somewhere else... but then this cheesed!ck would have nothing left to write about!!

Sadly, this brings to mind the many great players who have worn the Chiefs uniform and never even sniffed a Super Bowl. A lot of wasted talent has passed through this franchise on their way to retirement.
