The Morning Fix

Mistakes are part of life. The only way they can be positive and productive is if something is learned from our failures, generally with the idea of making sure they don’t happen again.

This is a concept that apparently Dwayne Bowe has not been able to grasp, despite having numerous opportunities to do so.

The Chiefs wide receiver is at it again. Rather than getting as far away from the controversy involving the ESPN the Magazine article about the road trip habits of his teammates in 2007, Bowe has again opened his yap and breathed new life into what was a dead story.

Speaking on an Atlanta radio station last week while attending a football camp, Bowe again said he was misquoted by the writer of an article about road trip stories from athletes. In that piece, Bowe said in his rookie season on a trip to San Diego, some of his teammates arranged for various women to stay in the team’s hotel during the Chiefs visit there. His claims of an entire top floor of women flown in by Chiefs players was scandalous on the surface and ridiculous and likely fabricated in reality.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe continues to claim that ESPN the Magazine misquoted him in an article that discussed members of the Chiefs “importing” women to stay with them in hotels for road games.

In an interview with 790 the Zone in Atlanta, Bowe was asked if his teammates had a problem with the article, in which he was quoted as saying, “some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room.” Bowe said his teammates aren’t mad because they believe him that ESPN the Magazine misquoted him.

“No, because now they are finding out that it definitely wasn’t me,” Bowe said, per SportsRadioInterviews.com. “But I took that like a man. People that really know the Dwayne Bowe that clowns but on a serious note won’t let anything out of the locker room that is not supposed to be out.”

However, what really gets me is this list:

90. RB Cedric Benson, Bengals
80. RB Michael Turner, Falcons
48. RB DeAngelo Williams, Panthers
32. RB Ray Rice, Ravens
22. RB Maurice Jones-Drew, Jaguars
21. RB Steven Jackson, Rams
15. RB Adrian Peterson, Vikings
5. RB Chris Johnson, Titans

The list got one former Texas Longhorn running back on the list, but they listed the wrong one. How is Jamaal Charles not on this list? Furthermore, how is he not rated above Cedric Benson? Heck, I would take Charles over Turner, Williams and Jackson on that list. I will (almost) guarantee that if Charles plays all 16 games this year, he will have more rushing yards, more total yards, and more receptions than any of those guys on the list (provided they stay healthy, too).

Charles may be an unknown…for now. I have a feeling when the 2011 version of this list comes out, Charles will be on it. And he will certainly be higher than Cedric Benson.

Addressing their surplus at wide receiver, the Washington Redskins waived Marques Hagans Tuesday. The transaction leaves the team with 11 wideouts.

The former U-Va star never saw the field for the Skins after joining the team as a practice squad player in December 2008. He was waived in August of last year and signed again in April. He caught nine passes for 108 yards in two seasons with the St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs.

Hagans’ waiver is the first of several moves management is likely to make at the position before the team’s season opener on September 12. The Redskins added veterans Joey Galloway and Mike Furrey this offseason to go with Santana Moss, and are hoping Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly, both of whom are entering their third year in the league, will break out this season.
