FT. LAUDERDALE -- It didn't take long for Dwayne Bowe to get acclimated to the NFL. In two seasons, he has 156 catches, 2,017 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. He improved from year one to year two across the board.

And he's done all of this while the Chiefs have juggled quarterbacks.

Those days are over as Kansas City traded for Matt Cassel, giving them their quarterback of the future to go with their wide receiver of the present and future. Appearing at the Moss Brothers' Dare to Dream Charity Event, Bowe talked about his new teammate and what it could mean for his stats.

Over your first two NFL seasons, you've played with several different quarterbacks. How difficult does that make your job?

Bowe: It's been tough but it made me a great player to be able to cope with quarterback after quarterback. Injuries do happen. You just have to be a professional and get your timing down. At first it's kind of tricky when you start throwing with the new guy -- you feel like you can't ever get it right. But time makes that better to prepare for. The more quarterbacks I played with, the better I became. Everybody has their different style, which makes me better because now I know that if we're ever in a game and we have to switch quarterbacks, we'll be prepared for it.

So while we're on the subject of quarterbacks, let's talk about your new one in Matt Cassel. What was your reaction?

Bowe: "I was shocked, but this is a business and things do happen. I don't really watch TV but people were calling me and saying 'You got Matt Cassel'! and I thought that was cool. Then they were asking me 'Do you know what your stats are going to be like?' Things happen for a reason.

Have you talked to him yet?

Bowe: "He called me (Tuesday) morning and said 'Hey, D. Bowe, wake up! I've been watching film on you for two days -- you better get your mind down here.' I'm going to fly to Cali and go see him (this week)."

Wow, that's fast. Are you going to get used to how he throws, or are you just going to chill out with him?

Bowe: "No, I'm just going to chill, nothing serious. When we meet up in Kansas City later this month, we'll get our timing down then."

Did you watch Cassel play last year? Were you impressed by him?

Bowe: "Yeah, I really was. He did great under pressure. He's a veteran who never got a lot of publicity, but from watching him, he's a great quarterback."

Is your potential to play at your best even better now because the Chiefs brought in Cassel who will be your guy for the whole season whereas the last two years involved multiple passers?

Bowe: "It's a possibility. I don't know yet, but if he does, my percentages will go up a lot and if not, I'll still make it happen."

How does it feel to be a part of an organization that's taking on the whole Patriots mentality with their former G.M., their former quarterback, their former linebacker and a whole new way of doing things?

Bowe: "That business side, I have no clue what goes on. I haven't talked to (new G.M.) Scott Pioli yet. I try to stay out of there because I want to get my main job done. That higher office, I see it, I wave and I just keep going."

So while Cassel arrives, Tyler Thigpen finds himself likely battling for a backup role, which is too bad because he was pretty effective last season for the offense.

Bowe: "Tyler is my man. I like both quarterbacks. I'm a receiver, I like any quarterback who can get me the ball. Tyler's my boy, but things happen."

Have you checked in with Tony Gonzalez about this development? There's been news about whether or not he wants to stay with the Chiefs, and a lot will depend on the moves they make this offseason.

Bowe: "Tony's a different person. You never know how Tony feels about a situation. I'm thinking he should love it, but you never know."

Kansas City has the third pick in the NFL Draft. I know you don't like to deal with front-office stuff, but let's say you were the G.M. Who should the Chiefs take at No. 3 overall?

Bowe: "Michael Crabtree. I love competition, he's a good guy and he'll stretch the field and make me better in that no one can double-team me, so I'd go with him."

FT. LAUDERDALE - No pasó mucho tiempo para llegar a Dwayne Bowe aclimatados a la NFL. En dos temporadas, tiene 156 capturas, 2017 yardas recibiendo y 12 touchdowns. Mejoró desde el primer año a año en todos los ámbitos.

Y él ha hecho todo esto mientras que los jefes han malabarismos quarterbacks.

Esos días han terminado como Kansas City de comercio de Matt Cassel, dándoles su quarterback del futuro para ir con su gran receptor de la presente y el futuro. Que figura en el Moss Hermanos Atrévete a Soñar Caridad del evento, Bowe, habló de su nuevo equipo y lo que podría significar para sus estadísticas.

Durante sus dos primeras temporadas de la NFL, que ha jugado con varios quarterbacks. ¿Qué tan difícil es hacer que tu trabajo?

Bowe: Ha sido duro, pero me hizo un gran jugador que va a ser capaz de hacer frente a quarterback después de quarterback. Las lesiones ocurren. Sólo tienes que ser un profesional y obtener en su momento. Al principio es difícil tipo de lanzamiento cuando se inicia con el chico nuevo - usted siente que no puede nunca hacer las cosas bien. Pero el tiempo que hace para preparar mejor. Cuanto más he jugado con quarterbacks, mejor me convertí. Todo el mundo tiene su estilo diferente, que me hace mejor, porque ahora sé que si alguna vez estás en un juego y tenemos que cambiar quarterbacks, estaremos preparados para ello.

Así pues, mientras estamos sobre el tema de los quarterbacks, vamos a hablar de su nuevo en un Matt Cassel. ¿Cuál fue su reacción?

Bowe: "Me sorprendió, pero se trata de una empresa y cosas así. Realmente no ver la televisión pero la gente se me llama y dice" ¿Tienes Matt Cassel! Y yo pensaba que era genial. Entonces se me pide "¿Sabes lo que sus estadísticas se van a como?" Las cosas pasan por una razón.

¿Ha hablado con él?

Bowe: "Él me llamó (martes) por la mañana y dijo" Hey, D. Bowe, despierta! He estado viendo la película en que durante dos días - que mejor que tu mente aquí abajo. " Voy a viajar a Cali y ir a ver a él (esta semana) ".

Wow, eso es rápido. ¿Vas a acostumbrarse a la forma en que lanza, o se acaba de ir a descansar con él?

Bowe: "No, Voy a chill, nada grave. Cuando nos reunimos en la ciudad de Kansas a finales de este mes, nos pondremos entonces en nuestro calendario".

¿Te ha Cassel ver jugar el año pasado? Se le impresionó de él?

Bowe: "Sí, realmente fue. Hizo grandes bajo presión. Él es un veterano que nunca recibió una gran publicidad, sino de ver, él es un gran quarterback".

Es su potencial para jugar en su mejor momento, porque aún mejor que los jefes de Cassel, que será su hombre para toda la temporada, mientras que los dos últimos años que participan múltiples transeúntes?

Bowe: "Es una posibilidad. No lo sé todavía, pero si lo hace, mi porcentajes suben mucho y si no, voy a seguir haciendo que suceda."

¿Cómo se siente ser parte de una organización que tome en su conjunto Patriotas con su mentalidad antigua de GM, su ex quarterback, su ex linebacker y toda una nueva forma de hacer las cosas?

Bowe: "Eso del lado de la empresa, no tengo idea de lo que pasa. Yo no he hablado con (nuevo GM) Scott Pioli todavía. Trato de permanecer fuera de allí, porque quiero que mi principal trabajo. Esta oficina superior, yo lo veo, me acabo de ola y seguir adelante. "

Así que mientras llega Cassel, Tyler Thigpen se encuentra luchando por un probable papel de copia de seguridad, que es demasiado malo porque fue bastante eficaz durante la temporada pasada por la ofensa.

Bowe: "Tyler es mi hombre. Quarterbacks que me gusta tanto. Soy un receptor, que al igual que cualquier quarterback que me puede conseguir la pelota. Tyler es mi muchacho, pero que las cosas sucedan."

¿Ha comprobado con Tony González acerca de este desarrollo? No hay noticias acerca de si ha o no quiere quedarse con los jefes, y mucho dependerá de los movimientos que hacen de este offseason.

Bowe: "Tony es una persona diferente. Nunca se sabe cómo se siente acerca de un Tony situación. Estoy pensando que debe amar, pero nunca se sabe."

Kansas City tiene la tercera selección en el Proyecto de la NFL. Sé que no le gusta para hacer frente a front-office cosas, pero digamos que eran el MM ¿Quién debe tomar los jefes en general N º 3?

Bowe: "Michael Crabtree. Me encanta la competencia, que es un buen tipo y lo extienden sobre el terreno y me hacen mejor que nadie puede hacer doble equipo de mí, así que me gustaría ir con él."

It does require more than a 40 to stretch the field, namely your ability to run and sell a route which Crabtree is coming from an offense where he doesn't run NFL routes...

Hakeem Nicks doesn't have a great 40 yet he was always a good deep threat because he knows how to do it, Crabtree meanwhile was never a top end deep threat.
