Kansas City Chiefs: Is Dwayne Bowe Happy Despite Lack of Production?
So far this season, Dwayne Bowe has not come close to living up to his prediction that he’ll lead the league in touchdowns and receptions. In fact, his stats are roughly in line with his disappointing 2012 season. Unlike Mike Wallace who threw a fit over his lack of targets in the Miami Dolphins’ season opener despite winning, I believe Bowe is content with his role so far.
The Kansas City Chiefs are 7-0, and that seems to be the dominating factor for Bowe’s happiness. Coach Andy Reid commented on the subject via the team website, “You know what, I’m telling you, I don’t know where his perception is, but this is a phenomenal guy. He’s all in. He’s all about the team.”
As long as the Chiefs keep winning, I don’t think we’re going to hear a peep out of Bowe. He got his contract extension worth $56 million over five years back in March, so nothing but winning should be on his mind.
There is definitely room for improvement on the KC offense, so a talk inside the locker room about ideas to get better would be understandable. A complaint to the media about his role would not only be counterproductive, but also make him look as selfish and childish as Wallace did, and I don’t think Bowe is that type of player.
