I know how hard it must be for Bowe owners. My heart goes out to all of you.
Can Palko get him the rock? Could Cassel even get him the rock?? I used to watch Palko play at Pitt - and the dude has a noodle for an arm. Unless something has changed drastically, I think that he BARELY makes the practice squad on any other NFL team.
Personally, I think that Ricky Stanzi is a better option to start for the Chiefs - and maybe we'll even see him make an appearance in this game. He played hs ball in Mentor, OH with my cousin before they both went onto Div I schools. Smart guys, strong arm.
Jordy is an obvious start. Even though GB spreads the ball around, he has been a TD machine. Manningham has enough upside as the clear No. 2 to get a start over Bowe. Bradshaw is going to be out for another week and Nicks will draw a lot of coverage, so that leaves Ballard on the underneath routes and Manningham on the cross/flag. Victor Cruz is still getting a lot of looks, but his penchant for dropping catchable balls in tight situations (pulling a Marshall) seems to have completely taken him out of Eli's red zone equation.
If your third option were a Nate Washington or an Earl Bennett, it might be a tougher decision to bench the man you drafted to be your number one. But I think you're in good shape here. That being said, if Bowe manages to pull a nice stat line this week and your league's deadline hasn't passed - TRADE TRADE TRADE!!!
