|Time to tell it like it is…
Fumbled fingered Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe needs to stop smoking so he can stop choking.
We all know the Chiefs are a decent if not good football team now. We also know that Matt Cassel has been awful and is not getting any better. We have now seen him stink for one entire season and the first third of this one. We also know that our wide receivers are not very good. In fact pretty bad.
Here’s the word from very strong inside sources: D-Bowe is big with the bud.
Smokes a ton of weed. So do many NFL players, he’s not alone.
However the scoop I have from a source extremely close to Bowe is he smokes right up until game time.
Like getting out of the car to go into the stadium he’s still suckin in the green monster smoke. Not too smart, especially when you are dropping half of the passes sent your way. It slows you down, and likely he forgets routes. I have noticed that he is often blocking for the backs and receivers when he can.
And yesterday’s drops were, well, unreal.
Jim Rome pointed out that the Chiefs would be a top notch team if Matt and Bowe were decent. They aren’t.
So then you say, “Come on Craig, don’t they drug test players for pot?”
The word is NO.
Yes, they test for enhancement drugs, like HGH and coke/speed, but word is not so much with weed. Why? Cause pot stays in your system for days and too many players smoke weed each week. That is a well known fact. They just do. Not too many smoke on game day though.
If this is true regarding Bowe, and it looks very likely based on his continued poor performance, it is also likely the higher ups know about it. Hard to single him out, when other players are getting high early in the week as well, but not day of game. Because it would still show up in their drug tests too.
We couldn’t field a team if all players got checked for the green.
