It would feel like something was missing if a season went by without a wide receiver trying to give Andy Reid a headache. On Saturday night, Kansas City Chiefs wideout Dwayne Bowe was arrested for possession of a controlled substance after being pulled over for speeding. The arresting officer searched Bowe and his two passengers after smelling his car that reeked of marijuana.
Everything has been going right for the undefeated Chiefs this season, so of course it had to be a wide receiver that causes a distraction the week before the biggest game of the NFL season to date. Thankfully for Kansas City, Reid is no stranger to distractions or stupid behavior.
We’re talking about the man who went to the Super Bowl with Terrell Owens on his team during his diva prime. He’s the same man who dealt with DeSean Jackson and his antics for five years and made the playoffs in three of those years. Remember Freddie Mitchell? If you do it’s because of his ridiculous behavior and not his four-year career with the Philadelphia Eagles that never saw him eclipse 500 receiving yards in a season.
Wide receivers aside, Reid was also the coach who welcomed Michael Vick and the circus that would inevitably surround him into the Eagles organization after he was released from prison. Do you think one little arrest for marijuana is going to do anything but make Reid feel more at home? This will be a minor case of the hiccups for Kansas City, and nobody knows how to deal with hiccups better than Reid.
