    Spot on and first time I've seen this. Bowe has looked chubby the last two years. He needs to drop about 15 or 20 lbs if he really wants to get his career going again. His hand fighting/toughness is Jennings like but of course, Wallace kills both these guys in the speed department.

    Much like the imagined 2nd strike, and also the made up "off the field troubles", please feel free to show me where he was reported as overweight. I've read that he came into camp overweight in '09, and again in '10 (although only slightly), but since then? I will say that I've read an article or two by the obese, dim-witted and racist Jason Whitlock where he's suggested that Bowe drop a couple pounds but only complete morons take anything he says seriously.

    Lots of players show up to their first day of camp and the coaches look at them and ask them to shed a few pounds. Happens to players at all positions. But really, who gives a flying f***? Is the guy at his required playing weight come kick off of game one? Yes? Than what do you care?

    Bowe had at least 1,000 receiving yards in three of his six seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. Bowe led the NFL with 15 touchdown receptions in 2010 and ranked seventh with 1,162 receiving yards. Bowe ranked 10th in receptions and 13th in receiving yards during the 2011 season.

    Bowe’s production has declined in terms of receiving yards and TD receptions, but this was due in part to poor quarterback play. Kansas City’s quarterbacks combined to throw 21 touchdowns and 38 interceptions in 2011 and 2012 while the team ranked 28th in QB rating in 2011 and 31st in 2012.

    The Kansas City Star does not expect the Chiefs to offer impending free agent Dwayne Bowe a long-term deal.


    Bowe played out the 2012 season on a one-year, $9.5 million franchise tender. He's expected to hit the open market as perhaps the best wideout available. Despite consistently horrible quarterback play, in six seasons Bowe has averaged 4.7 catches for 65.0 yards and scored 39 touchdowns -- putting him in the conversation for greatest Chiefs wideout of all time. Bowe will turn 29 in September.

    Hang on. I'm not a big fan of Bowe or anything, but how long do you think his arms are? There's no way he could have reached that, unless he's secretly Inspector Gadget.

    i'd be happy w/bowe. people who think he's a malcontent or lazy are going off his pre-2010 reputation (which he did earn, to be fair). haley praised bowe's work ethic and considered him a team leader a season after he had demoted bowe. he's never had any off-field problems.

    the knock on bowe's hands is legit, if somewhat overblown. he doesn't have 2010-11-brandon marshall-level dropsies, and he brings in some balls that a lot of receivers wouldn't.

    i probably prefer wallace and then jennings over bowe, but not by a great margin, and it wouldn't surprise me if bowe was the best of the three over the next few years. each of them has his strengths (and weaknesses).

    We agree about the poor QB play in KC.
    On the other side of the argument, put yourself in Bowe's shoes on that short-arm play. Would you have extended yourself to try to catch or knock down that ball? As for myself, I'm not sure. I like to think I would try to make a play for the ball, but I've never payed football at a high level. I'm really not sure how I'd deal with an NFL safety bearing down on me.

Pretty sure not everyone has to have great hands to be productive look at greenbay with finley some people want him and he has drop issues along with wallace who's dropped more embarrassing balls this year than bowe. We also had legadu on this ****ing team lol
    I think what what regesteredguy was trying to say might be that Bowe has the reputation for being a locker room cancer who has a habit of dissapearing when your team needs him most, then drops the one opportunity (pass) he has to be a hero. He has no break away speed. I think we have learned our lesson with 'size queen' diva receivers. If he was interested in a resonable contract, and he may after he finds out there are no takers, but forget about breaking the bank here.

    We should sign Riddick Bowe - he can punch the crap out of Ireland when he asks the next rookie prospect if his mom's a prostitute. You know, someone to keep Jeff in line.
