It’s only October and the season is far from over but receiver Dexter McCluster has come to expect the same scene whenever he strolls into the Chiefs’ locker room after a victory. First he sees the smiles. The laughter. The high-fives and the relief. Then he hears the rap music which always blasts out of a small red boombox supplied by the player who has perhaps sacrificed more than most realize to help the Chiefs jump out to their best start since 2003. “After every win Dwayne brings his boombox out” McCluster said. “He’s the first one to play that music … and it’s like a small party in there. We’re smiling. We’re dancing. Then coach (Andy) Reid gets in and he turns it off.” But the smile apparently hasn’t left Dwayne Bowe’s face after that. Teammates and coaches are adamant that no one is happier with the Chiefs’ 6-0 start than the 29-year-old Bowe who is on track to post the worst 16-game season of his career statistically. “I don’t know what his perception is to people” Reid said “but this is a phenomenal guy. He’s all in … wherever we put him wherever he can help win games that’s where he wants to be.” Right now you argue that’s largely been as a decoy though Reid and Bowe’s teammates say there are reasons for that. “The biggest thing for him is he’s just got to stay patient” cornerback Dunta Robinson said. “I know he’s a great receiver that wants the ball but this offense we’re not going to force anything. They’re gonna take what the defense gives them.”
