Dwayne Bowe IS a #1 WR



Dwayne Bowe is a #1. I am nearly 100% he would average 1,300 plus yards and nearly 10 tds in a pass first offense. He has been in a run first offense since he was drafted. He would be a definite pro bowler in Houston, New England, Indy, Denver, ect. Im tired of people saying hes not a #1 WR. He proved it last week. I know it was a blowout, but he was going against Champ Bailey. Champ Bailey is a competitor who will play man to man with all his heart even if the score is 200 to 3. Dwayne Bowe consistently made Champ Bailey look like Brandon Carr. Even when the game was in reach, he made great plays and ran great routes on a top tier CB. Not only does he play in a run first offense, but he plays in a division that has 3 top 10 cornerbacks. Two of which whom are in the top 5 in Bailey and obviously Nnamdi.

 

A great comparison to Dwayne Bowe is Hines Ward. Hines ward has had a great career in a consistently run first offense. He has absolutely no years that are astounding, or unheard of, or remarkable. But when it when Jerome Bettis, Willie Parker, or Rashard Mendenhall got/get tired, he always made a play.

And Dwayne Bowe has done nothing but that for our offense this year. As soon as Jamaal rushes for a 3 yard gain, boom... Dwayne Bowe breaks the zone, breaks a couple tackles, jukes a man, and takes it to the endzone. After we've ran all the way into the red zone. Bowe is there for the fade route. That is all you can ask him to do. He has made key drops, but im sure even Fitzgerald would after watching the team run or pass it to the tight end 30 straight plays. We didnt draft Bowe expecting him to be the next Jerry Rice, we drafted him expecting him to be the next Hines Ward. He is a #1 WR for this offense and could be a #1 WR on any team he wanted to. He is essentially the type of WR we need for this offense. We don't have a QB with a cannon arm, we need a strong possession receiver who can make plays for himself without much assistance. And thats what D Bowe does.
