View Full Version : Will Bowe Make it Through the Week?

After two dropped opportunities today and the way Haley is about players that do not play "his way" I wonder whether Bowe will make it through the week. Certainly, he didn't improve his chances of moving up in the depth chart, I saw Engram and Bradley on the field more than him today.

I thought we had a great weapon with Bowe and that he was a great receiver, but apparently it seems he is taking the Pollard path and will be released soon.

I saw his pair of drops and he was contacted on the play, as well as Cassels questionable passes on those plays. I don't think it will affect where he stands right now.

I don't see him being releasd either. He is too valuble just to give up. Hell he is better than Brady or Wade, or Engram...or Sean Ryan.

Are you insane? Bowe is one of the better WR in the league. Cassel is just inaccurate and makes poor decisions NO MATTER how well protected.

Then why is he not playing? If he is one of the better receivers, why is he only getting two to three looks a game and playing in. He has only started 2 games, though I know he was injured in one of those supposedly.

Maybe he will start being used more, but if he is one of the best receivers in the league, I would have expected him to be used more.

And I would expect the Offensive Coordinator of a Super Bowl team to be able to call plays to stay competitive. I would expect when a team dominates in the stats that they win the game. I would expect getting a head coach who is from the Offensive side of the ball to make the Offense better and we would be struggling on Defense if anything.

On this team right now there are a lot of things that aren't up to expectations.

Haleys way is f**king weird, and starting to annoy me. The problem is the team plays a different way every time. They haven't seemed to build on their successes.

I know Charles fumbled the opening kick... but it doesn't really make sense to not use him the rest of the game because of that. He had 2 carries for 24 yards and LJ had just 2.9 yards a carry.

I think Haley goes too far to punish players, even if it means it's going to hurt the team's chances of winning. I understand making a point, but you also have to show some faith in your players if you want them to get behind you as a coach.

If bowe is such a great WR he should of caught those passes....Bowe should of caught those passes ...he is pissing me off when he drops passes. I wouldn't be surprised if he left we already got rid of TG and i know our team would be a little bit better when him on the field.

Even the best guys drop balls every now and then. Moss, Welker, Fitzgerald, Rice...D Bowe is fairly young still, and I still don't believe this offense is queued up yet.

Like honda said, every receiver drops passes. And every QB misses their guy deep sometimes, just as Cassel did yesterday. It's still inexcusable of course.

They all dropped passes. Cassel had trouble hitting WR`s.
I`m startint to think Cassel is getting affraid when he droppes back to pass.But with our line i probably wouldbe too.

At this rate I see him losing any ability to be poised in the pocket, kind of like how David Carr's career was ruined by playing behind a terrible offensive line for so long, and what seemed was happening with Croyle until the Baltimore game. Many QBs seem to start to lose the ability to scan the field for an open receiver, instead worrying about whether or not they're about to be murdered from the pass rush, even after the line is improved and starts giving them time to pass.

Another thing is it looks like Cassel is affraid to throw the ball sometimes. He got his butt ripped on after the faiders game for throwing 2 picks. Now like a kid, he wont take a chance.
You throw the ball close to 40 times a game the chances are good you`llbe picked off sooner than later.
I always like dickie v`s thinking on that.Problem is we dont have his offense to comeback from that.

Dwayne Bowe never was and never will be a true #1 receiver. I've said it from the beginning. He is proving to be more and more avg to below avg each week!

Before this year he was the best WR out of his class. Sure his hands could use some work, but when you bench him, dont let him get practice and game reps, what do you expect?

Let the guy play, hes the best WR on our team and 2nd best in the whole division.

Let's just cut him and DJ so they can go somewhere like Houston and lead their new team in receptions/tackles in their first game!!! Brown over Pollard... Ya, that was a good call!:sign0098::drunkhb:

Gawd, just talking about the Chiefs pisses me off anymore...

Pollard wasn' that great.. He had spirit, but lacked technique.

Still couldn't hurt to have him as a back up when Mike Brown goes down with an injury.

He may not have been great but who on the chiefs is.
