Chiefs Should’ve Traded Dwayne Bowe For Tim Tebow


One team needed PR makeover (the Kansas City Chiefs). The other one needs to score more than 2 offensive TDs during 11-quarter spans (the New York Jets).

The trade deadline has blown over, but it makes one wonder. Should the Chiefs have traded WR Dwayne Bowe for QB Tim Tebow (and maybe a pick)?

Why did the Jets act like Jason Hill was a superior receiver to Terrell Owens – who they didn’t even try out – if they ended up cutting him a few weeks later?

With Marty Schottenheimer apparently jumping on as a consultant for the Chiefs, why didn’t they add someone else that would make fans believe they are trying, namely Tim Tebow?

The Jets sprinkle in Tebow here and there, but the Chiefs would be able to use creative formations involving Tebow, RB Jamaal Charles and WR Dexter McCluster in the same backfield. The Chiefs are taking action at the QB position, but former Tebow back-up Brady Quinn hasn’t inspired fans.

It’s interesting to see the Chiefs be decisive about QB Matt Cassel who¬† has led two different teams to 10+ win seasons with +10 TD-to-INT ratios, while Mark Sanchez has only one double-digit-win season and his career high was +8 TD.

Both offenses are disjointed, but the Jets seem more in denial. They keep trotting the same O-line and receivers out there as they’ve been outscored by 21 in back-to-back weeks by (in fairness, this was after the trade deadline), launching head coach Rex Ryan into tears and a “Who here thinks Tebow is terrible?” tirade. Dwayne Bowe is definitively the match-up winner and field-stretching wide receiver they thought Stephen Hill would be when he erupted for 89 yards and 2 TDs week 1 against the Bills (he has 107 yards and 1 TD in his six games afterwards).

Bowe has had 39 TD receptions in his 84 games for the Chiefs, receiving from Damon Huard, Brodie Croyle, Tyler Thigpen, Cassel, Kyle Orton and Tyler Palko (none of which are starting this weekend). There are flaws to his game, but beggars can’t be choosers.

Commissioner Roger Goodell allegedly stepped in to try to convince GM Ted Thompson to send one of the league’s biggest stars from the Packers TO the Jets in 2008. He can’t be happy with the lack of in-game exposure for one of his biggest stars in 2012.

Moreover, is Mark Sanchez so fragile mentally that he wouldn’t be able to re-assume his role if Tebow faltered?
