The Chiefs spent the last several days setting their draft board in preparation for this week's NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. The process merely confirmed for new general manager John Dorsey that when it comes to quarterbacks, their homework is only starting.

Still, the critics have a solid case. Could you imagine that museum where the symposium took place, in its hallowed place by the Washington Mall, being called the National Museum of the Redskin? Or try a few comparable variants (the precise degree of offensiveness is naturally subjective): the Washington Darkies, say, or the Washington Eyeties, the Washington Ragheads, the Washington Spics. No way.

Bowe is the receiver with the most complete set of skills in this year's free agency. At 28, he could be a good quarterback away from a true breakout season. Even though Bowe is just getting off an incredibly rich contract in which he under-performed, he is good enough to warrant another.
