Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 6/7

Good morning, Chiefs fans! We have a pretty good Arrowheadlines for you. Today's Kansas City Chiefs news includes more on Bowe's recovery from the Colts game, Bob Gretz's thoughts on the NFL vs. NFLCA, and a look at how ESPN hurt the feelings of Seahawks fans (the picture above is a hint). Enjoy.

Dwayne Bowe looked left for dead just four games into the Chiefs 2011 season. He'd just dropped two critical passes in a close loss at Indianapolis and fans were sick of seeing the drops.

Actually, everyone was sick of seeing the drops. Though Todd Haley publicly backed Bowe following the dreadful performance in Indianapolis, the Chiefs head coach now admits that he'd heard the criticism and realized his No. 1 receiver was at a crossroads.

Why would the league and owners want to make the NFLCA look bad? Because the assistant coaches have been talking about unionizing for some time now and they are seen as standing in line behind the players as the next group the league must reach agreement on a contract. Some of those at the top of the coaches organization think the cutting of salaries for the assistants, along with more teams opting out of the NFL pension plan, will make more and more assistants willing to push for certification of the association.

In the third reviewed game in our Buffalo Bills re-watch, it's time to take a look at the team's Week 8 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Just as we did in our reviews of the Jacksonville and Baltimore games, we'll break down the game by halves, starting with the first half - in which the Bills were competitive, but still trailed the Chiefs at the half.

The NFL has its Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins. Major League Baseball has its Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians. And the state of Wisconsin has the Osseo-Fairchild High School Chieftains.

Team names that have been deemed offensive have been finding protests against them  in many forms over the years, many have stuck by their brands.

Ranking NFL stadiums is a subjective exercise, but we have qualms with the process ESPN used to choose the toughest stadium for opponents. On NFL Live, Marcellus Wiley and Mark Schlereth formed a consensus, choosing Arrowhead Stadium as the toughest place to play in the NFL. But, as we said, it's subjective, and there are a few issues with having those two choose the toughest place to play.

First, the video, over on Youtube and courtesy of ESPN.
