The best Dwayne Bowe quotes from his recent radio interview

Rob Carr

KC Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe joined 810 WHB this week to talk about the Chiefs. Here are Bowe's best quotes from that interview.

Last week KC Chiefs G Geoff Schwartz was a co-host on 610 Sports for a few hours and on that show the hosts, Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison, played some audio of Jamaal Charles earlier in the season saying "escalades" when he really meant to say "accolades". Schwartz laughed about it and said that sometimes when you're doing interviews words just come out and don't make sense.

That's what I'm thinking of as I heard what Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe told 810 WHB on Tuesday. Bowe, who we wrote about earlier for his explanation behind the final offensive play in the Colts game, said he was being "watched and followed" and "profiled" when asked about his November arrest for marijuana possession.

"I mean everybody, people close around me and my team and the organization know I had nothing to do with that," Bowe said of the arrest. "I was being profiled and it will all come to light in February. It wasn't a distraction because my teammates know and my family knows. Like I said, I was being watched and being followed. Like I said, that's how it goes sometimes when you got the millions behind your name.

"I mean once it clears the air, everybody knows, whoever knows Dwayne knows the truth about it and know what kind of guy I am. I just can't wait until it's all over, so let the world know instead of the people that's close to me know what really happened."

Yo, Riverside Police, you just got called out. Are the police really after him?

"I mean, it's not just them," Bowe continued. "It's everybody. And once you get those Ms behind your name, you'll feel exactly how I feel. It's everybody. It's just anything can be an influence. When you're in a town with not a lot going on, you know, bad media is good media. So you just got to stay calm and stay collected like I do now and just move in silence. That's how I move. You got to be patient and you got to move in silence."

Bowe went on to explain that Tony G. used to move in silence, too. I'm not doubting Bowe. It's just odd to hear this kind of talk about something as minor as possession of pot. Is there more to this?

More highlights from D-Bowe's interview on 810 WHB below. Read a full transcript of D-Bowe at Chiefs Spin (from which I stole a few quotes, thanks Herbie). Listen to the interview here.

  • Bowe talked about Eddie Kennison and other veterans tying him up to the goal post in his rookie training camp. "I remember like it was yesterday," Bowe said. "Coming into the facility super late, feeling like the man, just got drafted first round, nobody could tell me nothing." Bowe said they poured ice all over him and said (jokingly, I think) he began to lose feeling in his body. Sounds like he and Kennison are still buddies today.
  • Bowe says he a had a great year, but winning is all that matters. "I played all around great football, blocking and receiving and getting guys in position to be where they at today. We got three guys on offense going to the Pro Bowl, so it's just me helping my team get to that [level] is what I call a great year no matter what my stats be because I know what kind of player I am and what I can do. And it was the first year, so the coaches were seeing what guys can do. And next year it will be even better stats-wise for me. But when you get to this point in your life, you just want to win. I honestly just want to win, that's all I want."

  • Bowe is a role model. "And the young guys that come in, everybody wants to be like Bowe. That's the thing I strive on is to be a good role model on and off the field."
  • Bowe is a phenomenal receiver. "I take every play seriously and that's why I'm the phenomenal receiver I am today because I take every play like it's my last."
  • On the Chiefs offense this season vs. years past: "It's not like a couple of years ago when I was the only one on offense that you got to come to me 12 or 13 times a game."
  • Bowe wants to become fast like DeSean Jackson. " I just want to work on my workout ethic a little bit more and become more and more quicker and faster so I can be like (Eagles wide receiver) DeSean Jackson and those kinds of speedy quick guys."
  • He said he was 212 pounds last season and wants to be 208 pounds.
  • Bowe talking about his foundation, which supports grandparents raising grandchildren. "W want to really, before my career is over, at least have 10 families that we adopt and take care of on an everyday basis. That's something that's really important to me and definitely want to keep it going."
  • Bowe is happy in Kansas City. "I love my home. I love the fans. I love the people. I definitely have no problem, that's why I'm still here and I'm loving every second."
  • Does Alex deserve a new deal? "He definitely deserves a new contract. He's a leader, he's a game manager, a game changer. And the quarterbacks I had in the past definitely don't amount to what he did in this one single year. He's learning, too, so definitely have a young quarterback with swag like him. You got me, on the other side, complement, you get another good receiver, you never know how far he can take this team."

Another take on this worth reading comes from Adam Teicher, who says Bowe is among the most misunderstood players the Chiefs have ever had.
