Hines Ward retirement.....Dwayne Bowe???



I just finished watching Hines Ward retire from the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was advertised as Hines's retirement from the NFL, but I witnessed something much different. Hines Ward had yellow and black tears running down his face as he told the world what it takes to be part of something as special as his Pittsburgh Steelers.

After watching the press conference and NFL narrative highlight reel, I realized that the Kansas City Chiefs have somebody who can one day have a very similar story. Dwayne Bowe has the chance to be a very special player, part of a very special franchise.

Dwayne has had to be that #1 receiver for a primarily running team for most of his career, yet he is still regarded as one of the best receivers in the NFL. He has earned the respect around the league of being able to catch anything near him while sacrificing his body blocking for one of the most consistent running attacks around.

Hearing Hines talk about walking through the Steelers parking lot before games with his family, meeting the fans as they huddled around barbecues. Rain, snow or shine couldn't keep the fans away from supporting their beloved Steelers, and Hines Ward loved it. Sound familiar to anybody?

Dwayne, you have a golden opportunity to solidify yourself as the greatest receiver in Chiefs history. You can stand at a podium ten years from now talking about Super Bowl victories, and what it takes to get them. Let us as the Chiefs fans of the world keep cheering you on from behind the red and yellow of Arrowhead Stadium. It'll be worth it in the end, just ask Hines Ward.

Watch Hines's press conference on NFL.com:
