Craig Davis's fellow WR at LSU is making a piss-poor impression

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- If Dwayne Bowe wanted to make a good first impression, he failed miserably.

    Kansas City's first-round draft pick began his professional career by showing up 30 minutes late for his first practice. Stretching exercises and coach Herm Edwards' welcoming remarks were finished by the time the wide receiver from LSU hurried onto the field for the opening session of a three-day rookie minicamp.

    Then the 6-foot-3 Bowe, who described himself on draft day as "intimidating," proceeded to drop several passes.

    He also caught quite a few, and looked good doing it. But he did admit that for this one afternoon at least, he did not feel quite so intimidating.

    Once again, it's looking like AJ got the better WR of the tandem.

    :yes:

    Lemme see, Davis didn't show up late for minicamps, and didn't suffer from the dropsies, according to those of you that went.

    I think it's a little early to say that. We'll see.

    One day doesnt make a season. So he was late and dropped some passes. Meachum showed up out of shape and has a bad ankle.

    The season starts in September

    Calling out all the n00bs who told MTL that Bowe is a gawd and will be better than Sidney Rice (you know who you are).

    I was all over Sidney Rice, I think he'll be the next Chad Johnson.

    But Bowe was never even on my top 5 WR's for this draft.
    I wouldnt be surprised if it had come between Bowe and Davis that AJ still would have picked Davis.

    One practice and your calling a victory? :lol:

    Has the Vikings even had their minicamp yet?

    You guys are taking these minicamps way too seriously.

    There could be a number of reasons the guy was late to camp. Dropping passes though, maybe just some rust. I wouldn't wanna compare these guys for a couple years down the line anyway.

    I agree. I just don't think this is anything even worth taking a shot at. If Bowe had a history of being late to practices and dropping passes, then sure.

    But who's to say that other fans can't say that Craig Davis is a china doll after our first mini camp? Heck, some of our own fans already jokingly have. It just doesn't hold any merit. Time will always tell.

    Sorry, but there's no valid excuse for a guy being late to his very first camp. If there was some special circumstance, like a death in the family or something, I think the organization would have made a statement in defense of Bowe.

    Bowe does have a history of dropping passes. Supposedly, that problem was fixed by Lasik surgery he had before his senior season, but he still had some problems.

    dropped passes eh?

    yea, i'd be worried if I was a chiefs fans.

    dropped passes was the biggest knock I had on Bowe and although the lasik surgery could help him, I think his problem goes further than eyesight and is a lack of concentration thing.
