Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe checked in at No. 45 on the list of the NFL's top 100 players, as voted on by the players. No. 45 sounds about right for Bowe, who had a career year in 2010 leading the NFL in touchdown receptions.
Chiefs head coach Todd Haley presented Bowe on the NFL Network video and recalled a key moment in Bowe's 2010 season.
"We had a game against the Indainapolis Colts and Dwayne had a chance to catch a sure touchdown which would have put us ahead -- and he dropped the ball," Haley said. "There was a heavy amount of criticism and that's a moment that can break receivers.
"But the next game he's on the road at Houston and Dwayne had one of the more impressive games I've seen. To me, that was a signature moment for Dwayne and his developemnt for his abiltiy to come off maybe his worst game and have one of his best."
Chiefs fans remember that drop in the Colts game well. It could have sealed up the game but, unfortunately, Bowe dropped it and KC lost. The following game against the Texans, which Haley referenced, was also a loss for the Chiefs.
KC was able to string together a total of 10 wins in 2010 leading them to an AFC West crown. A big reason for that was Bowe's breakout season.
