The Kansas City Chiefs have had the largest rebound of a season going from winning only two games in 2012 to winning every game thus far in 2013.
The undefeated Chiefs, backed behind new head coach, Andy Reid, and new starting quarterback, Alex Smith, are looking to add more excitement to the season in hopes of defeating Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos this Sunday.
But before the excitement of Sunday Night football can begin, the Chiefs had to take tie to focus on other matters. Earlier this week news broke that Chiefs starting wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe, was arrested early Sunday morning for possession of marijuana and speeding.
Regardless of what season the Chiefs may be having, news of having a face of your franchise arrested on drug related issues is always unsettling.
Even bigger news, arguably more controversial, is that the Chiefs have decided to start Bowe at wide receiver despite of his off field issues. Many have found this to be a poor public relations decision by Kansas City, but some would argue that a team looking to defeat Denver cannot afford to play without their start wide-out.
Those in favor of Bowe playing, point out his importance on the field due to a lack luster offensive team carried heavily by their defense.
Is it worth it to bench Bowe to establish an expectation for your franchise or it is more important to worry about this at another time, perhaps at the end of the season?
