Chiefs coach Todd Haley says Dwayne Bowe is “becoming one of our most dependable players.”
“He understands,” added Haley. “He’s made progress in all areas. That’s what we want. … He’s working very hard. He’s focused, and I think that’s showing up. The sky is the limit; he’s just got to continue to stay focused.” Good sign for Bowe. Also Bowe looked very solid in the Chiefs Saturday Preseason game. With Haley and Weiss helping Cassell more and more Bowe could be in for a nice year.

Bernard Berrian “looked borderline disinterested” in 41 snaps during Saturday night’s preseason game.
Berrian blocked poorly, alligator-armed a pass on a stick route, and dropped a throw that resulted in a pick six for rookie safety Earl Thomas. In 41 snaps, Berrian had one catch for eight yards. Greg Camarillo had seven snaps, a team-high four catches, and 47 yards. Percy Harvin had 30 yards on two grabs in 14 snaps, and will be the top beneficiary of Sidney Rice’s absence. Now that Harvin might have found the root of his headaches he is most definitely the #1 option in Minnesota for Favre to throw to. This is a disappointing report on Berrian although it shouldn’t be looked into that much. Berrian still has a great opportunity playing with Farve and Berrian is talented.

Rookie Golden Tate didn’t play on offense until the fourth quarter of the Seahawks’ third preseason game Saturday.
Tate caught a 41-yard bomb from Charlie Whitehurst and had another six-yard grab, but has clearly fallen down the depth chart. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Deion Branch, Mike Williams, and Deon Butler area all ahead of the rookie. Rookie Wideouts usually don’t produce. I don’t think Tate is worth a pick in any type of league. Ignore the early hype on him.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak revealed Sunday that Owen Daniels (knee) will play just 15-20 snaps in a “best case scenario” on Opening Day.
This confirms speculation that Daniels would start the season slowly. He’d usually play 50-plus snaps in a regular season game, but the Texans remain concerned about Daniels’ recovery from ACL surgery and subsequent setback. Kubiak didn’t rule out the possibility that Daniels could miss Week 1 entirely. Daniels is talented and is worth stashing as your #2 tight end because he could bring great numbers starting in week 3 or 4.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan acknowledged Sunday that Donovan McNabb (ankle) is in danger of missing Week 1.
“I really don’t know for sure,” Shanahan said. “That’s why it’s day by day. We’ll see how it goes.” Be careful with Mcnabb although he should be fine for by Week 2 if anything.
