Dwayne Bowe has a better day

Last Wednesday was not a good day for Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe.  After dropping multiple passes in an offseason practice, word emerged of his ill-advised “importing” comments to ESPN The Magazine.  In between, he played the “no homo” card in a radio spot with our friend Nick Wright of SportsRadio 610.

On Monday, things improved for Bowe.  According to Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star, Bowe “made tough catches and easy ones” in the first practice session of the new week.

Coach Todd Haley, echoing his words from last Thursday to Jim Rome, said that the second-year coach has had a “long conversation” with Bowe regarding his decision to talk publicly about a private matter that undoubtedly caused plenty of unwanted problems for his current and former teammates.

“You’ve got a lot of young guys who our coaching staff is constantly
coaching, on and off the field,” Haley said, “trying
to get them to think the way that we know works, and act the way that we
know works.”

“He was starting to bounce back from all the other stuff that’s been
going on,” receiver Chris Chambers told the Star.  “Once again,
it’s a part of life.  He’s young still.

“I’m not really
comfortable talking about it,” added Chambers, who believes his own off-field entanglements got him cut by the Chargers.  “I’m his teammate, part of the wide
receiver group.  I’m going to support him.  It seems like some things got
twisted around.  It’s unfortunate for him that he has to go through this,
because he’s been doing well.”

For now, the matter seems to be resolved.  The challenge for Bowe will be to continue to do the right things on the field, and to avoid saying the wrong things off it.

On Monday, Bowe made no ill-advised comments; he was long gone by the time the media made it to the locker room.

    The problem with you and many others glorious is that you think it’s OK to sell out to make money…homo is short for homosexual….you claim to be Christian but choose to condemn a word over an unnatural and nasty act

    “The challenge for Bowe will be to continue to do the right things on the field, and to avoid saying the wrong things off it.”
    –Being a Chiefs fan the challenge for Bowe should be when the ball hits him dead center in the chest he can hold on to the ball as he is getting tackled. God knows he couldn’t actually, you know, juke a defender and get some Y.A.C. After that I will worry about him importing and pulling the “no homo” card. I do think its funny he was worried about what people would assume when he made the comment about him and Cassell, I wonder if Dwayne did a little experimenting at L.S.U. Bowe and Russell would make a cute, fat, and lazy couple.

    Aren’t comments supposed to be approved before they post? How are bigotted comments, such as Jolly’s, getting through on an NBC owned site?

    ……What does FOX News have to do with the homosexuals comment? What a kool-aid drinking sheep moron you are kcchiefs. You might learn something if you actually watched FOX News, though they probably use too many “big” words for you “bitch”

    people are trying to make this story a bigger deal then it really is enough already

    poor savagenation, just another brainwashed victim of michael savage and fox news…there is no hope for you now i’m afraid

  11. Jolly says: May 25, 2010 11:26 AM

    I do not watch fox news nor base my views on Fox news. But I find it rather convenient for glorious to claim Christianity then condone a lifestyle that is deemed immoral by the Scriptures.
    I realize most of you will react with didain but you all have to
    answer to the Bible’s author.
    Just don’t claim to be Christian for expediency and then uphold the same abhorrent ideals that this world prizes.

    Faux (Fox) news is far the mental midgets that we encounter daily. Screw savagenation and jolly.

    Meanwhile, Commissioner Conduct Policy has this to say about the whole importing thing — nothing.
    So much for that whole “we’re not gonna tolerate it” thing.
    Unless of course, you’re a high-profile QB you need to make a PR example of.

  15. hineswardcriesafterfumbling says: May 25, 2010 12:15 PM

    Frank, the “imports” were there by choice. They weren’t led there in an inebriated state by a state cop posing as a “body guard”.

  16. Frank Burns says: May 25, 2010 3:21 PM

    Hines, what does that matter? Remember, the Commish said the league would come down hard on any behavior that wasn’t morally righteous and all that — you’re gonna tell me turning a hotel into your own sexy fun house is an example of good behavior?
    And remember, Ben didn’t get nailed for anything you’re claiming — it was about providing drinks to a couple underage women (never mind it’s the bar’s responsibility to check IDs). Sorry dude.

    This story is being made out to be something it really isn’t
    I doubt Bowe is being crucified in the locker room and most comments we see are people laughing
    It just isn’t the end of the world that some blogs are trying to make it out to be

  18. dwilkes023 says: May 27, 2010 8:54 PM

    Bious is right.
    The overwhelming opinion of Chiefs fans in KC is that it was a case of DBowe shooting his mouth off, maybe embellishing, to a reporter and that it just needs to die.
