Teicher: Bowe's performance reminiscent of last season

Bowe's performance reminiscent of last season
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star

LANDOVER, Md. | For the first time this season, Dwayne Bowe had a familiar look to him. He had six receptions and went over 100 yards for the first time since the season-ending game in Cincinnati last year.

Bowe supplied several big plays, with none more important than his 32-yard catch and run late in the game that allowed the Chiefs to rest easy near the end of their 14-6 win over Washington on Sunday.

Afterward, he didnt sound much like the Bowe of old. This Bowe was far more humble.

Theres no more old D. Bowe, he said, indicating his days of often excessive self-promotion are over. Its time to build a new D. Bowe. There was nothing wrong with the old D. Bowe, but this is a new D. Bowe.

As always with Bowe, there was some bad with the good. He dropped some passes, he missed a block on a play that otherwise would have been a touchdown for Matt Cassel and he went out of bounds on his 32-yard gain when the Chiefs wanted to keep the clock moving.

The encouraging part to the Chiefs was that Bowe was aware of it all.

I left a lot of plays out there, he said. I was pressing, trying to make a big play. Even on that 32-yard slant, I should have stayed inbounds. Ive got to be a smarter player in situations like that.

Bowe has been a reclamation project for Chiefs coach Todd Haley since Bowe showed up overweight for the start of offseason workouts. Bowe was even demoted for a time during preseason, and Haley tried to get him to work harder and take his job more seriously.

Bowe said hes gotten the point and is happy for the attention however negative Haley has given him. But he insisted the creation of a new Bowe is his own idea and not Haleys.

This is what I want, he said. But coach Haley is trying to get greatness out of me and I understand it now, so thats what Im trying to do. Its all showing out on the field.

He knows what it takes. He built (Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald) up to be as great as he is, and hes trying to do that with me. I see it and I know it and Im trying to get there.

It hadnt shown itself on the field until Sunday. In the first five games, Bowe had three touchdowns and only twice caught as many as five passes in a game.

But this was the first time he clearly asserted himself as Cassels favorite receiver.

All week we had a great week of practice, Bowe said. He kept telling me, Im going to come to you so be looking out.

Bowe's performances have been fine, Teicher. He just hasn't been the target of enough passes to jump out on the stat sheet.

That's what I like to hear from Bowe. He dropped three passes he absolutely has to catch.

The only way Bowe becomes GREAT is by not trying to be great. Just make the catches, RACs, and down field blocks, and the noteriety will follow. As a Chiefs fan, I want our players to put the team over personal ambition. Just look at Washington. There's a team loaded with Pro Bowl talent, but they didn't play together like a team, and it made all the difference in the final outcome.

Bowe realizing his full potential DOES help this team.

I don't want him to press, but I do want him to strive for that greatness.
He's on his way. Just needs more consistency.

I hope Cassel remembers to get him involved more...early.

The Chiefs won the game, but with Bowe's mental lapses.... they could have easily lost.

I am happy he recognizes this. It is frustrating as a fan to see such great talent plagued with purely mental mistakes.

Bowe dropped a surefire 1st down, short of that he played a great game yesterday. Almost had the td in the 4th qtr.

I think Cassel needs to find a groove with his receivers, some of the timing was off. I believe it was a pass to Bobby Wade where Wade either broke outside too late or Cassel fired too early, but if they get their timing down, I believe they will start coming into their own.

Didn't get to see the 2nd half, but a common theme is still that after he passes the ball, Cassel can be seen picking himself up off the turf. That could possibly maybe have something to do with his timing with receivers...just sayin'...

This is BS.

i have read from smart MF'ers who post at CP that Haley alienates players and is a total dickwad, hated by virtually every player on the team. That his tactics don't work, and that eventually the team will revolt and burn his house down.
