NFL Trade Deadline: Patriots Snag Talib, Bowe Stays

The NFL Trade Deadline has passed and as expected, WR Dwayne Bowe is still a Chiefs.

But that doesn’t mean no deals went down.

The New England Patriots have traded for Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cb Aqib Talib.

Talib has a lot of troubles off the field and is currently serving a four-game suspension for breaking the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

There is no word on what the Pats gave up for Talib but it was likely a draft pick.

For the Chiefs, the deadline was quiet. With the future of GM Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel in serious doubt due to the extremely disappointing 2012 season, it would have been foolish for chiefs owner Clark Hunt to allow Pioli to make any major moves.

For now, at least, Dwayne Bowe remains a Chiefs.

    ….As I raise my arm in the classroom; “I don’t want to trade Dwayne Bowe.” I find it sad, however, that we couldn’t create a winning culture for a solid player to want to stay. If this keeps up; Charles, Houston, Flowers, heck, even Hali and Derrick might want out of Kansas City. When that happens, this team and the city will become where no one wants to play. A sad sad thought but it’s a reality. We need Bowe to stay but to keep a relationship strong; you must show the ability to change after your mistakes. We need a QB and a strong movement inside the organization that shows a want…hell a NEED for a WINNING culture. All in favor say “AYE”

      We’re already a team and a city where no one wants to play. The only “big name” free agent we’ve managed to attract in the last several years is Eric Winston, and he’s not even that great. Moreover, our two best players that became free agents last year (Bowe and Carr) both wanted to play elsewhere. Maybe some of that is about $, but you can’t deny that our consistent mediocrity isn’t a turnoff for players who are in their prime and at least want a CHANCE at a superbowl.

        Isn’t that when they bring in a solid coaching staff to bring a better culture and a different frame of mind? How many coaches in the NFL go into a desolate fan/team base and rejuvinate it? We seem to be looking for the next band-aid to cover a cut that’s too deep; we need stitches and an intelligent doctor. I’m not arguing; I agree with every point you’ve brought up; it’s all true. I’d hoped that during the last 7 years I haven’t been watching the new “Browns” come to Kansas City but it’s looking pretty similar.

          Sad but true and you are right on point!
