NFL Rumors: Dwayne Bowe headed for Hall of Fame?
Amidst the muddled mess that is the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2012 season, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been entangled in rumors of his departure. One report says that he’ll stay while another says that he’ll leave via free agency. Either way, it’s been a sour apple on the tree of despair that is the Chiefs’ current campaign.
The latest statement to come out of the Bowe camp had some extra intrigue to it, though.
“This is where I was drafted,” Bowe said. “When I’m finished, I feel I should be in the Hall of Fame and hopefully win Super Bowls.”
Really? So Bowe thinks that if he sticks out his career in Kansas City, he’ll end up in the Hall of Fame? I don’t know about you, but that seems like a massive stretch considering the team’s inability to even stumble upon the occasion bout of success. And we won’t even go into the whole Super Bowl part of the statement.
Now there’s no denying that Bowe is a top-tier wide receiver who has done his fair share of damage as an NFL pass-catcher. Throughout his six-year career, he has amassed 405 receptions for 5,553 yards and 39 touchdowns. His best season came back in 2010, when he hauled in 72 passes for 1,162 yards (16.1 yards per catch) and 15 touchdowns.
Still, the future looks bleak if he remains with the Chiefs as he hits the midway point of his NFL career. Kansas City has failed to put together any sort of consistent offensive attack, and Bowe has been the only legitimate receiving option for whichever inept quarterback is currently in the lineup.
His struggles have been highlighted by his lack of yardage this season. Despite being on track in 2012 to break his career-high for receptions, he is only averaging 12.8 yards per catch and has only found the endzone three times. That, however, can be attributed to the combined subpar passing of Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn. The explosiveness that we’ve seen from Bowe in the past, however, is missing.
Year after year, Cris Carter, one of the greatest pairs of hands in football history, continues to get snubbed by the Hall of Fame voters. If Bowe thinks he’s getting into Canton, it’ll be long, long after his playing days are over.
